So my friend's toy poodle always wants to be carried. Now here is the mistake the owner is making and in my opinion whenever her poodle whimpers, the owner gives in and carries her poodle. Trying to exercise the poodle by walking her turns out to be a complete failure. I took the leash and made some success walking her but she constantly whimpers when we have to stop like at a stop light. Should we continue to force the toy poodle to walk even though she whimpers because the whimpering stops once she starts walking. The toy poodle has no health issues or problems. We don't go to a park because there are no parks nearby and so we just walk her on the sidewalks.
