Pomeranians are affectionate and friendly toward humans. They tend to bring a lot of happiness in the home because of their personality. Pomeranians are also active dogs that love to play.
Just like any other dog, a Pomeranian needs regular exercise for optimum health. Typically, this dog enjoys a bit of walking and playtime outside the house. However, for the dog in our story, the opposite is true.
Peanut is a Pomeranian who lives with his human mom and dad and his dog sibling. When he is inside the house, he likes to get everyone’s attention, especially his mom’s, and play with them.
When he sees it’s time for his daily walk, he excitedly runs near the door with his brother, an Australian Shepherd named Stains. Then he steps out with his mom and brother, happily trotting along the neighborhood.
But when they are about two houses away, Peanut stops walking. And he wouldn’t move no matter what his mom says or does. He goes down on the ground and stays there.
His parents wondered how they could get Peanut to have his exercise if he kept stopping just a few meters away from their house. They asked for help from known dog training expert Victoria Stilwell.
Stilwell observed Peanut’s behavior when his mom took him out for a walk. And sure enough, after just a few meters, he stopped walking and plopped down on the road.
Because Peanut wanted to stop walking, his mom decided to bring him back to the house. However, the moment they started walking home, Peanut’s energy “returned,” and he walked excitedly.
This showed that he wasn’t exhausted. There was a specific spot along the road that appeared to trigger fear.
Would Peanut overcome this fear? With proper training and guidance, he surely could. Watch how things turned out for this cute Pomeranian in the video below.
