A dog’s home is not his castle, but the backyard is his kingdom! So how do you explain the difference to him? If you remove the grey area, your dog will not be confused about what is ok or not ok to do. When you have a “puppy in the training stage of life” there are no questionable circumstances in which you leave it "up to the pup" to know what he can or cannot do, and what is acceptable or unacceptable. Does this sound familiar?
- I’m trying to tire him out.
- When he gets out of control I put him outside.
