Youth! They'll get used to it & start loving it. Just keep every walk attempt a pleasant, fun & exciting experience. It is very common for puppies to be reluctant to venture out. Hang in there. This will pass quickly.

They are probably just too young. They will eventually love them, but right now not sure about it. I would start off with just playing in the yard and getting them to follow you in the yard, eventually it will roll over into walks.

How to: Post Pictures

To add a pic in your signature, go to "User CP" (user control panel) & choose Edit Signature. There's a size limit for pics in your signature (see approximate size in my sig).

keep working on it , if those two dogs in your av are the ones you are referring to , they are much to precious to not be out and about

Make it playtime! Use your yard to start in, take a toy with you and coax your pups to follow you. It take time with youngsters like yours so make it fun and only try short session to start with, say 10-15 minutes.

My best friends Lab pup was exactly like this! She would just sniff somewhere and then lie down there. It wasn't because she was tired, as she'd only been going a little way. It just takes time for them to get used to going for walks on leads.
My friend also started walking just in the garden, and rewarding the pup when she walked well on the lead. Within months she had forgotten about the whole flopping on the ground every so often and now she's like a steamroller when she knows she's going for a walk!
Good luck with your pups!
