Why does my dog not want to walk after 5 minutes?

Asked a year ago

Why does my dog only want to walk for 5 minutes and then he just stops? We take different routes all the time so it cannot be that. He is only 1 years old with no history of injuries. Why does he do this?

Dogs might refuse walks for many reasons. Even with no history of injuries, there may be pain or discomfort somewhere affecting his gait. It’s also possible something during the walk is spooking your dog — some dogs are very sensitive and might react to noises or smells we can’t detect ourselves. Try walking at different times of the day or in a different area to see if it makes a difference.
