Dog won't walk with me, but will with other walkers?

asked 2018-09-28 18:25:27 -0500


I was recently hired to walk a dog for a few days. She's a sweet older girl, but she tends to stop walking after only ~15 minutes. I asked if this was her typical behavior. She seems to have no problems walking with other walkers. How could I get her to walk with me? I try to make sure she gets her thirty minutes since that's what the clients pay for. But she doesn't seem interested in walking and will pull towards the entrance of the apt building after a few minutes.

Any tips would be appreciated! Thanks in advance

Every dog is different, I have a daily that doesn't like to walk very far, he would rather spend time sniffing and scratching vs. walking. You can always try high value treats to help them along but it still may not work so you should tailor your route to a short distance and then return home. Best of luck
