As yesterday's post indicated, last week was NOT a good week for me and the pups. Besides the running away incident, someone peed on the guest bed, Hailey peed on the floor out of spite while Phod was at the vet, and 2 times they got stuff from the counter and destroyed it. We got to practice patience a lot. I really need to start to get this under control now as starting Sunday, this is a 3 dog house . . . . .
1) Increase exercise. We haven't been walking as much because it is winter. Now that it is getting warmer, it is time to get more exercise in. We are going to double our walk time.
2) Increase mental exercise. While we are doing some training, we could be doing more. I am going to make a chart [I love a chart] and work in at least 3 training sessions per day.
3) New toys: I am going to look for new things that will keep their minds busy.
4) I am going to remember to breathe.
