I recently acquired a 3 year old male pomeranian. He does nothing but hide under the bed. I have to coax him out so that I may walk him. Even at meal time, I have to bribe him out from under the bed.
Once he is out from under the bed, he is fine – playful, energetic, and sociable – as long as he can’t make it back to his hiding spot.
What can I do to make him come out from under the bed without having to bribe him and then barricade my room?
treat him when he comes out from under the bed and when he stays out, he’ll get the point.
also annas answer was good but i disapprove of a choke chain as they have soft throats and many have a hacking problem for no reason at all…
