I've been taking Mac on short walks to get him socialized and tire him out a bit, etc. I live in an apartment building and the streets around us aren't terribly busy, but definitely not quiet. He does fine on the leash but whimpers and cries the whole time. I can tell he's unsure of the cars, trucks, sounds, all of it. He's almost 12 weeks now. He did a similar thing when I took him to a secluded baseball park recently to run around – was unsure of his surroundings and was reluctant to play.
I'm wondering if anyone had similar experiences with a puppy crying on walks, and if they outgrew it naturally with time and practice? I obviously don't want to traumatize the poor guy! Any advice is welcome, thanks :)
