My first puppy as an adult was lucky because he ran our house. Between toilet and obedience training, feeding, and walking the pup, working and keeping my apartment and husband in order I was too tired to notice mischief before the destruction became clear. I had no idea of what unacceptable behavior was until I was down on my hands and knees cleaning up yet another mess, and believe me the damage was considerable. That pup gave me a surprise daily.
Twenty years and three dogs later I now know almost all dogs have a few discipline problems like biting, chewing, jumping on people, excessive barking, and stealing food. Digging holes in the yard or flower beds, getting on furniture and beds, and chasing cars, kids, kids on bikes or cats are among the ones I have experienced…so far.
I knew you have innumerable talents and skills, but now I have to add pilot and real estate agent to the list. You have a nice site here.
