Winnie has just started doing this over the last few days. When she wakes up in the morning and comes out of her crate she doesn't want to come downstairs to go out. She sits at the top of the stairs and watches while we get our shoes and coats on to go out. We try all sorts of ways to get her to come down. This morning we tried going out of the front door in an attempt to make her think we have left without her. Then she will come down. She wants to go for a walk as when we put the harness on she is at the front door waiting for it to open and is raring to go. We can get her some of the way down with a toy or a treat to lure her but stops about half way. She doesn't seem scared of anything. What could be going on here? Also she used to dash out of the back door when one of us went out to the garden or garage but now she just sits inside by the open door. If I said to her 'mummy's going to the garage are you coming?' she would dash out in excitement as she knows that's where I keep all her treat boxes and she likes to sniff them. Now she doesn't want to go out and if I leave her behind she will paw at the door. If I go back and open it then she dashes out like she used to but why doesn't she want to come out the first time anymore? I feel like I'm constantly persuading her when I know she wants to go anyway.
