I'm often surprised by the number of first-time parents that become irritated when their kid(s) won't stay parked in front of the television for 6 to 8 hours a day. :thinking:
Well, now days they will. I mean there is netflix, internet, games, etc, but yeah I agree, having a child you basically sign away your life for at least 20 years...
Of course if a kid doesn't stay glued to the TV, well, then it must be ADHD, and he needs some adderall :tinfoil:
plz understand that she is walked 4-6 times a day but she doesn't like the leash because we have her trained infront of our 4-wheeler she listens to the engine for when to speed up and slow down and she loves that she would rather run in the woods for an hour or two at about 10 mph than walk on a leash on the pavement.
That's great, but I'm sure you don't go on the four wheeler everyday.
For mornings try to train her to just go, pie, and come back in. Give her 5 minutes outside, then call her back, and give her a treat when she comes.
The only command a dog really, really, must learn is to come. No laser will work as a substitute for it.
About the leash, personally, if my dog asks to go out, or it's that time of the day, I generally go to the door, and he is already waiting for me. Until the leash goes on, he knows I'm not opening the door though. He also knows that if he goes inside, I'm going to be kind of ticked.
