    Once a day for between and 1 hour and 1 hour and 20 minutes.

    If I didn't I'd feel guilty and would be getting hassled by my dogs.

    (Original post by Noxious-Nikki)
    I've tried just leaving the door open so he can go out alone if he wants, i've tried going out with him, with treats and his favourite, i can get him to (reluctantly) come out on his lead, but he just looks miserable and pulls to go back inside. He shows absolutely no interest in treats or toys while outside. People keep suggesting treats, but though in the house he loves them, he really couldn't be less interested outside.

    I'm trying to make outside a fun and familiar place to be for him, but it's not
    working too well, so if anyone does have any suggestions, i'm all ears.
    (One suggestion the Dogs Trust made was getting a second dog, and he does perk up a bit when he see's other dogs on his walks, so that's something i'm considering.)

    I should say, while home, he seems perfectly happy, healthy, and lovable, he loves to play, or just to cuddle.
    I think this is a brilliant idea.

    I did the same thing, my original dog got to the point where she just didn't want to be out on a walk.

    Anyway we decided to get a 12 week old puppy from a rescue centre and for the most part it has been successful. My original dog still gets a bit frightened on walks sometimes but for the most part the lunacy of the younger one snaps her out of it on a walk.

    My dog tends to run round the fields next to my house rather than go on actual walks as she doesn't like being on her lead, she would much rather run around the garden following our chickens
