Re: Barn Sour GSD?
My pup did this also at this age- it wasn't pulling in the usual sense but a refusal to go forward! And on the way home? an entirely different story. She's over it now and has been since about 14 weeks. I was advised here to look at what happened while we were out, and what happened when we got home. I was FEEDING when we got home; no wonder she was in a hurry. And our walks consisted of me nagging her not to pull, ignore this, go this way, listen to me......
Now we walk to the wildlife reserve about five minutes from my house, and she gets off leash time to run and explore. Or we go to the beach, which she also loves. and feeding is not associated with the time out at all.
