Hi, New(ish) to the Frenchie world. Loving it for the most part with some frustrations... My partner and I got our Frenchie when he was 8 weeks old. His name is Fritz and he is a joyful little guy. He’s currently 10 months old. I know that frenchies are known to be stubborn but, particularly relating to walking on a leash, he’s a terror. It’s simply not fun to take him out for a walk. We have routinely walked him 4 times per day since we received him (actually more when he wasn’t potty trained at all). Walks range from 20 min to 45 min usually. We had formal puppy kindergarten weekly for 6 weeks and then he did puppy “boot camp” for 10 days at 6 months old. For that, he stayed in a doggie hotel and had formal loose leash walking training daily (this was mostly because we had to go away and wanted him to have as much hands-on training as possible while we were unavailable. The main issue is that he is constantly trying to pick up twigs and little things on the ground. He used to pick up rocks a lot but has moved on to twigs. He will consume them at times if we aren’t quick enough. We have trained extensively with “leave it” and “drop it” but he still is very stubborn and isn’t great at following directions while walking. He’s easily distracted. Our trainer suggested that maybe some of this was a bit of anxiety. Do we just need to be more patient with this breed (since he is still only 10 months) or increase the amount of time we spend walking him and doing formal training? Is anyone else experiencing these issues with their Frenchie puppies? Thanks!
