I have a 14 week ABD x English bulldog. He started going for walks about 10 days ago. He didn't like it at first but was just starting to enjoy going, when we walked past a house that had a dog barking behind the front door. Wilson, was petrified, started shaking and wouldn't move. Since then he really hates going out. I can only get him to the top of the road before he lies down and won't move. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Your puppy will be alright he just needs to get used to his surroundings

My ABD, also named Wilson, was exactly the same. He was petrified of hearing barking dogs that he couldn't see. I would take him in a different direction - one that he didn't know. He hated walks and I literally had to pull him along. He is now 8 months old and loves his walks. Its just progression in their confidence with surroundings. Also let him work out the situation, don't fuss over him as he will think that being scared is a good thing. Good luck
