When I let Bailey out to go potty, I don't leash her; what does everyone else do - loose or always on a leash? We live in a mostly country area on 1+ acres, so neighbors are not really close. She's usually good about coming back in the house when you go back in, but the last couple of days she seems to ignore you & decide that she's not going back in the house, so I've been trying it with the leash so I can control where she's going.
Any suggestions or experiences would be helpful!!
We use the leash... but Ender is a city dog ;D
I would use a leash regardless though since potty time is just that... potty time... not play time. He's gotta come and go on MY TERMS not his. ;D
Use a leash or a check cord until you get the recall working. Sounds like you should start working on 'come' with your pup so that this does not become a game of chase me.
Since Blaze came home with us when she was six weeks old.. I always let her out in the yard and watch her. Now that she is 7 months old.. somehow when I tell her to go do her business, she does....I only lease her when we went for walks but now she is able to walk without the lease with no problems...
However, even though I bring paper and plastic bag, she has not poop or peed in anyone else's yard on our walk...strange...
