My Mum brought Poppy a LOVELY warm pink camo coat. The type that does up around their chest (under their chin) and under their belly.
When I went to put it on her she wasn't too sure but let me put it on.
Then she stood there. Frozen like a statue. Would NOT move. She had her ears back and looked at me like "Why are you doing this to me". She had the saddest face. I left her for a few minutes. Maybe 5 thinking she may get used to it and start walking around. She didn't. She just stood completely still! So I took it off and she was happy.
A few hours later I tried again. She let me put it on but wasn't too keen. And again she did the stand frozen to the spot thing. I tempted her with a few treats in an effort to get her to move and she didn't! Eventually she took a few steps and lay down and didn't move until we took the coat off her. I left it on a bit longer this time in the hope she would get used to it.
What do I do? This morning it was SO cold and I had to leave at 6am. It was the perfect morning for her to wear her coat but I didnt put it on her because of her apparent HATE for it! Do I just keep trying it on her for short periods of time?
