Hi all. My Maggie will be 16 weeks old on Saturday. We have worked very hard on all socialization from 8 weeks on. She has done great. only been timid of somethings. Getting in and out of the car. Wasn't crazy about riding in an elevator the first time but we mastered it. Loves other animals, people and stores. Lately her neighborhood walks have been a bit of a challenge. We have been walking on a loose lead since she was 8 weeks old and I have always tried to make the walks fun. We didn't go very far in the beginning but worked our way up to about a mile through the neighborhood. The last few days I have had to "treat" her to get her to even leave our property on our walks. She goes great and then stops. I have just stood with her when she stops because it seems she is "taking it all in" Watching blowing flags, listening to all noises etc. find that she sometimes goes to the point when listening to things. Im not sure if she is doing this because shes so smart and wanting me to "treat" her to keep going or if she is starting to feel a little scared??!! Not sure what to do and would love some thoughts. I am missing our nice walks (usually three a day) We also go in our field for long lead training and lots of play at lease twice a day.
