I’m struggling with what to write about my crazy little foster tonight. Maybe that’s the problem; he’s been unruly with me lately – like a rebellious teenager –and only gets cuddly when he’s not feeling well – like this weekend after getting into a big bag of treats and eating nearly half of them. I know some of his unruliness is my fault – you wrestle a few times and now he thinks we can do that every time he gets bored or wired. I also realize that I’ve been really tired lately, which means I have neither the patience nor the calm energy that I need to have with him.
How do you keep on track when you have a wired pup and you just want a little down time?
We used the new Halti Head Collar easy lead a couple of times. He wasn’t crazy about it – duh – but he didn’t pull and I was able to distract him from birds, squirrels, and humans. Jack Russell Terriers who charge us on our morning walk — that’s a different story. It worked well enough, but I need to tweak the fit of it.
Oh heck, let’s just say it – I didn’t read the directions or watch the DVD until now. Our walk this evening was much better as I understand how it supposed to fit. Even so, I needed to tighten it up more when we finished. The DVD was right … it is really tight, but man does it work!Bubba Rex (a.k.a.
