Dog won't come to me

7576 Views 20 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  HiSocietyPoodle
I have a 5 month old toy poodle who is always near me but whenever I try to pick her up or go near her, she runs away. At first it was cute, but now it's a nuisance. She loves going for walks, but when I try to get her to put on her leash, she runs away. Then she comes right back to me. At first I thought she was playing, but now it's 24/7. Anyone have this same problem? Solutions?

My sister n law has a Papillon that does this. He is 6 now and still does it. He'll come to you, jump on your leg like he wants you to pick him up, but when you got to pick him up he jumps back. With him it seems more like a fear than a bad behavior. it's not that he won't come, he just panics when that hand is coming towards him? Is that what your poo is doing?
