These two photos are from the other day. Dog is now being trained to stay inside.
Previously he has only been crate trained and stayed outside mostly, in his 10×10 corral and running free in fenced in backyard.
So he’s new to the inside during daytime nice weather, not in crate. In these photos he on the dirty kitchen floor, with his leash wrapped around the table leg just so he’ll stay put. He’s not depressed. He just looks like this when laying down with leash on or off. 🙂
So yesterday I had him in the house off-leash.
Today he’s been in off-leash.
It’s working out alright. The cats are wary of him, well not exactly.
Scarlet and Strider both like the dog. They go right up to Lothar and rub on him. Strider even licks Lothars head some. The Think Blue Count Two duo sit several feet away and watch the dog. They don’t want to be put near him, they pop and hiss if you try to make them. They have no problem running right next to the dog though to get onto my lap. 🙂
So this is first phase of “Get this dog ‘better’ trained”.
He’s over a year old. It’s just now that the first anniversary of his sisters death is at hand. 🙁
