We have a 1year old basset hound named Stanley. We got him from a local place where hewas mistreated when he was 2months old. We never did research or anything. We didn't plan on getting a basset hound, but couldn't stand to see him in a cage where he couldn't even stand up in, sitting in his own feces with no food or water or toys. So we brought him home then didthe research. We didn't realize how much there wars to being a basset family, but we love him and want him happy and healthy so we're adjusting. We're having just a couple issues. We know how much they need to walk and be able to 'hunt'... the problem is that we've never been able to get him to walk. We have a decent size yard here runs around in chasing his brother (1 year old yorkie, Charlie), but we want to be able to take him out. We put the leash on and he falls to the ground and will not move until we take it off. We've tried coaxing him with treats, gently pulling... everything we've found online but nothing works. Charlie was the same at first but once we got him passed the gate he was all for it. We were hoping that seeing Charlie do it would show him its it's ok and he'd walk with us. But nope. He got out front once and explored, he loved it but he was very hard to catch and will not go if on a leash. Any advice?
