Exclamation Walking Beamer... ughhhh

I have a slight problem with Beamer and his walks lately.
The problen is he just plain REFUSES to go! Puts on the brakes and will not walk down the driveway.

This all started acouple weeks ago when a new family moved into a home which ares backs onto. The new family came complete with a 9 month old ****zu mix breed dog names Blackie! He has become totally addicted and consumed with this dog! Morning till night he wants to be in the backyard in hopes Blackie is out, so he can run up and down the fence line with him.. lol
If the owners are out, we sometimes put Beamer over the fence or vice versa so the two can play.

So, now when i try to take Beamer for walks, he just will not budge, he trys to rdag me to the backyard so check out the blackie situation.

How can I get his mind off this dog and back onto our walking schedule?!!?

Tell him you are going to see Blackie. Or, maybe it's time for a brother or sister for Beamer.

Does he have a favorite treat or toy that he likes better than Blackie? I would suggest using a treat or toy to bribe him.

I like Michele's answer the best.

Besides that, though, I'm not sure what would work. It takes a lot of distraction, I guess.

I think Renee has the idea.

I can get Lola to do anything if I walk with a long piece of chicken breast jerky in my hand. She can actually walk 2 blocks on her hind legs! And ignore birds! That may be the bribe to get Beamer going away form the house.

Borrow a female in heat and let her walk with you and he'll forget all about Blackie . . .

Sounds like Beamer is in love...

with a doggy playmate.

I truly believe that he is telling you something, he wants a yin to his yang.

Don't feed him, put a hot dog on a stick in front of him....he will go!
