I have a 4 year old cross breed (miniature poodle/chihuahua).

Customer Question

I have a 4 year old cross breed (miniature poodle/chihuahua). She has always enjoyed going for a walk but over the last 2 months she has become very nervous and keeps looking behind her and pulls away from me all the time. She just wants to get home it seems. I moved house 6 months ago and I wonder if that has anything to do with her problems. She doesn't like traffic noises, especially buses. I keep changing her route but she still pulls to get home. Help!!

Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I have been in the dog field for 25 years. I am a Therapy Dog & AKC Evaluator/trainer/ specializing in behavior. It will be my pleasure to help you today.
Has this been going on since you moved?
What was the neighborhood like before?
Do you walk to different areas or do you drive to areas and then walk?
How does the dog behave inside the home with the traffic /noises?
Do you train with the dog on a daily basis?
