Help! My dog stops walking when he is wearing his leash
puppy Berkeley, will walk beside me or behind me if he is off leash or on a leash. But for the past few days when I put his leash and harness on, he will walk behind or beside me for like 5 seconds and then he stops walking and sits and no matter how much I call him to me he won't budge. And I end up picking him up and putting him down at next block. Help!

Max did this for a while. The trainer I had for my boys at the time said it was not good behavior. He taught me to snap the leash lightly to let Max know that it was not appropriate. I then proceeded forward and Max eventually followed. Don't pick up Berkeley. When you do that you are reinforcing that "sit and not budge means mommy picks me up". He's getting exactly what he wants.
