When I take her a walk around the streets my mom comes with us. When my sister-in-law is not at work she takes me and Lucy my dog with her dog to the park or woods etc. Most of the time when walking around the streets she walks behind one of us. At the park she is more confident and walks most time the full length of her extending lead away sniffing at everything occasionally will walk behind. The clicker worked for 4 days to get her walking with just me the 5th day I started of the exact same way with the clicker and she would no move she pulled to get back down the drive and as not worked since. Her hearing seems fine and her sense of smell is fine too. She flinches if bird flies over or branch hanging over the path or if lift my arm to wave or if something suddenly appears
At the moment her sight is only slightly effected such as something going over head she walks perfectly around obstacles up and down steps and as never walked into anything and is normal in the house and can see a spider a mile off no one would no anything was wrong. The advice about l giving commands for steps and stairs is useful to start now, but at the moment there is no problem, and I have always spoken to her whilst walking. I do clicker train her in the house so it is not just when we go out and have used special treats. in the house she will do everything but not outside I have not given up on the clicker and try every day but she will not walk I have tried for weeks.
