Ridiculous new aversion
Ruby loves to go out and we have to spell out W-A-L-K when planning an outing because she will get so excited about just hearing the word. But for some crazy reason in the last two weeks she has developed an aversion to putting on her harness and leash and will run into her crate when she sees it no matter how much we emphasize that she is going for a walk. Once we get the harness on her she seems to have no complaints or issues with the harness itself and loves the walk experience. This aversion has been escalating so we didn't take her for a walk all last week because she always ran away to her bed. She seems disappointed that no walk is happening but if we bring out the harness she runs away again. It does not seem to be some kind of game. She just doesn't want to put the harness on. We left her alone and went without her a few times to try and communicate that no harness means no walk but she couldn't compute. What to do?
