Milo is now 16 weeks old and I have been taking him out on walks for about 4 days now. He does well walking loose leash beside or infront of me with the regular sniffing around. Although sometimes he wants to sniff so much he refuses to continue walking. I started walking him on quiet streets to get him used to it all.
Whenever a car passes by, Milo is absolutely terrified and tries to run away pulling on the leash. So this restricts where we can walk to since I live a street away from the Hume Highway which is constantly busy with all sorts of cars and trucks. I've tried walking him on the Hume Highway twice but both times I had to carry him to get to the other side of the road. Actually, I had to carry him the entire time I was on the Hume Highway. There is a big park on the other side of the Hume Highway but I can't really get there with him being so scared of traffic. Also, he would anchor his feet more often the closer we get to the Hume Highway, and sometimes he would lay down to prevent me from pulling him forward. But once many cars are in sight, he would completely stop and turn back towards home.
Oh, he's also scared of bikes and prams. He loves kids but if a kid is in a pram, the kid is like some killer robot to Milo.
After I got Milo at 10 weeks, I regularly carried him out to the Hume Highway and let him observe people and cars and he was very calm and watched in silence moving his head side to side following the cars with his eyes. I've taken him to a small market place and sat on the edge with him on my lap and let him watch many many people walk by with bikes, prams, trolleys, everything "weird" to him. But... he probably found it boring and chose to sleep instead lol.
So yeah, may I please have some advice on how to let Milo know that cars are nothing scary.
