and I took her to petsmart/petco and regular walks in the neighborhood.
try that and see if that helps also when teething are won't listen very well LOL. Good luck! keep me updated
Well he's definitely hardcore into teething, for sure. Kinda driving me nuts...if he can get it in his mouth he will chew it LOL.
I'm so lucky w/ him, he is macho already and SO FAR isn't afraid of anything...knock on wood...not even big dogs. The other day we took him into a local petstore and the owner's dog and a puppy of the other worker both nipped at him (they were both big dogs) and he was not to sure...but last night we brought him to someone's house where there were a lot of people, it was loud, and there were two big dogs ... he did fine. Only problem is he gets TOO excited lol...if ya know what I mean. So embarrassing. I'm scared to walk him on a show lead around here, too many people have their big dogs on the loose and I can't scoop him up in an emergency as I've had to several times with my smaller 3 (Laurel's too big for this haha...)...so I'm not sure. I definitely agree that it would be amazing but I'm not sure?? I guess I can try it and just be extra alert. THe real problem is freestacking...I don't know how to help him "get it". Cali seems to do really, really well at it though so I just need to work at it I guess.
