We have recently adopted a 5 year old male yorkie called Buster.
We have had him for a few days now and he is a lovely dog until its time to take him for a walk.
He only has to hear you pick up his lead and he goes mad, he will jump up us, run around in circles and when he see’s the lead he will bite it and pull on it until you clip him on. He then pulls on the lead when walking.
I’d like to get this sorted as I’m worried he might hurt himself because of how excited he gets plus walk times are a bit stressful at the moment so I was wondering if he’s like this because he’s not used to being on the lead and if there’s anything we can do to change it.
our other problem is the barking/crying at night.
We’ve been leaving a light on and have even left the tv on so that he can hear voices but its not helping. Is this just a settling in stage or something to be more concerned about.
