My dogs are crazy!

When they are inside, they can't wait to go outside. When they are outside, they can't wait to get back in. If they weather was warmer, I'd make them stay out all day. Any ideas on how to control them?

  • To better control them I believe you need to put some time into some obedience training. Teach them some impulse control, like waiting at the door until they are released, or directing them to a station...a dog bed that they hold a down stay in...little things like that help immensely if you haven't done that yet.
