I think I have found THE most effective way to tame a dog from Hell! My family has a very high-strung puppy that hasn’t even hit 7 months yet. He bites, chews, runs, chases the cats (that still won’t let him know who’s boss), and just causes havoc. Oh, his name is Zeus.
Me and Manders went out to do some errands yesterday and decided to take Zeus for a ride just to get him out of the house and some fresh air. We were out a good hour and he did excellent for sitting in the back seat alone. Well, except for the time he puked. Eww. When we got home and got him in, he laid down and was pretty quiet the rest of the night.
Same thing today. We had a few more things to do and took him with us. He didn’t bark or bite. He did do a cute thing though. I had an R&B song playing and when my song stopped mid-song, he kind of grunted and looked at me. We think he may like R&B. We got him home and he wasn’t as rambunctious as he usually is. Granted, he’s still a puppy and has caused chaos all evening but he’s a puppy.
I am thinking that whenever we have some errands to do (when not all passengers have to get out of the car), take him with us. Maybe he’ll be more sociable and a happy puppy.
Otherwise, I’m calling The Dog Whisperer.
