What Is He Doing?

I need the dog whisperer.

Cooper is doing something creepy.

When I take Cooper for walks, he loves it.

However, when I take him down a particular trail by my house, he always grabs the leash and pulls me back towards home. It's always near the same spot in the trail. He refuses to go any further.

Is he protecting me from something down the trail?

Is he scared to go further?

He never does this, except on this particular trail.

I used to take him down the trail all the time. But a few years ago he started pulling this "I WILL GO NO FURTHER' business on me.

And it really creeps me out. It makes me think there is a scary man hiding in the bushes or something.

I haven't walked him on the trail in over 2 years, but tried it again on Tuesday.

And here is what happened ...

Any thoughts?

I'm going to try to get this on video so you can see it. It really is quite interesting.

Whoa. Creepy. I would follow his lead and not force things. Maybe something weird happened to him there? I don't know... dogs have a sense about that kind of thing.
