    DefaultPuppy on a tie out

    Hi there,

    I have a new pup and he is 4 months old today. I have a bunch of stuff to do outside, and since the weather is beautiful, I would like to bring Loki out with me. I have a 50 ft lead that I have tied to a tree that gives him pretty much free reign of the whole front yard. He just sits at the end and barks at me. I'm not sure if I should just let him bark and he will get the picture and enjoy his time out. He is supervised and literally 10 or 15 feet from me, but I can't have him next to me on a leash all the time as I will get nothing done. I would rather he be able to enjoy the fresh air than have to put him in his crate so I can go out. Any advice is very much appreciated!

    Forgot to mention, he also has a bunch of his toys out there, and a big bowl of water.

    A few corrections for barking will fix the problem. Some time spent training (e.g. sit/stay = self control), will also teach him you have expectations for his behavior. He'll get it, just be patient and consistent.

    If you tied me out on a rope, lead, whatever, I would probably bite you rather than bark.

    Obviously I am not a big fan of tying dogs up.

    Think of this, he wants to be with you, but you have him at the end of a rope and it gets frustrating for him. If you can remember that he does not understand why you do it it will help. You are probably better off crating him up while you are outside if that work is so almighty important it must be done. Dogs tend to sleep when nothing is going on around them.
