Having an issue with TOPAZ…do you have a B that does NOT bolt when the door opens??...does NOT want to go outside??...stiffens up at thought of walking???....I just don't get it
Our routine from Day 1 has been get up at 6am & out you go for potty & a hearty run/walk. Every day seven days a week.
When she sees me going for the leash she leans as far back as she can into her crate in the morning. At first I would reach in & try to pull her out. Now I throw treats outside her crate to make her come out & treats down the stairs to make her come down the stairs & finally treats outside the door to make her walk out the house. After a few feet of dragging she will eventually walk & SOMETIMES she's ok with for the rest of the walk. Sometimes its dead stop every few feet. Every night at about 11:30pm it's time for a final potty...every day seven days a week it's the same routine. And I do the whole treat thing again.
This has been going on for a couple of months now.
At first I thought maybe she's tired....but every day! Then I thought maybe it's too cold out...one day it was 60 degrees! Now I'm thinking maybe she's sick??
The last few weeks she's been having some pee accidents in her crate at night or during the day when we're not home. Never when we ar home. So I'm thinking maybe she's sick. I have an appt with the vet on Sat but I'd like to come in with some questions.
