12 week old extremely lazy
Hello, I just adopted Ghost Wednesday night. I've been reading that it is normal for puppies to be lazy and sleepy, but I want to make sure some of these dont develop into behavioral problems.
Ghost is being crate trained, he loves it in there... Too much. He won't even come out when I know that he needs to go outside for a potty break. He'll cry if the door is closed when he needs to go, but lays there. When he finally comes out, he acts scared to go outside. Getting him up and down the stairs to get out is another struggle entirely. He won't budge and it generally ends up with me carrying him. I can't imagine this when he gets bigger.
He is also stubborn on the leash, he generally walks good for a while, and then he decides when it's time to lay down in the grass (or tried getting under my car today). Once he makes this decision he won't budge. I've tried walking a circle around him if he's trying to get me in the opposite direction, but he waits me out and won't budge still.
Any advice you guys can give I would greatly appreciate it.
