Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

She's much the same - spends a long time in the yard chewing twigs, etc., then when she eventually ventures out the gate, stands and looks around her, sniffing the air with her ears alert. It can take half an hour to get into going for a walk mode, but an hour's walk can take an hour and a half. Sometimes she gets going, then a scary farm vehicle or such like comes past and she scuttles back home. Her attitude when going out with either of my two sons who walk her is completely different - straight out the gate and no dithering. One of them lives a few doors down from here now, but comes once a day to take her on one of her walks. When he comes to take her she gets so excited, it's lovely to watch.

It doesn't bother me any longer if she wants to spend more time in the yard with me than actually walking and I've given up trying to figure out why she is different with my sons.

Yuki probably feels "safer" with your sons in charge for some reason?

If you really wanted to train her into a walking habit with you, maybe you could give her a treat when she leaves the yard, and then periodically during a 15-minute walk, then go home. Then gradually lengthen the walks. If a scary thing goes by, I would just stand there quietly saying "It's ok, it's not a biggie" and then keep walking (I wouldn't let her run for home, I would really try to finish our loop).

But if she's happy hanging out in yard with you, that seems fine too! :-)
She seems like she's getting out and about with your son. Every dog has their quirks...
