My 11 month old (now) Chinese Crested puppy started becoming fearful of the outdoors when her uncle went away for a couple of weeks for showing. They were inseparable, and still are when they're inside. Outside is a whole other issue. Except for the odd time chasing squirrels or playing, Sky is terrified of going outside, on or off leash. She hides when her leash comes out. Well,,,,,she does for her brushes too. The outside thing started about 4-5 months ago. Her breeder is at a loss, but I only just told her. I thought I already had. She appears to be much happier peeing and pooping in the house then doing it outside. She will poop if she has too, but peeing is a whole other issue. I'm thinking I might try my own advice a see about homeopathic. I suggested that to someone else for fear issues so maybe? it will help with this too. I just am not sure what to do. Unless she's desperate her diaper stays dry.
I'll be trying the walking thing with her, but with her hating the leash and halter too I'm thinking it won't do much good. She's still so young that I'm really hoping I can get this stopped before it's part of her makeup.
