Hello good people.
so my boy is 11 months now in a couple of days, and goodness me is he being a teen.
so here are a few things I wondered if I could get some feedback on, I do realize I should probably have made several posts in different forums, as they vary in topic but I didnt... he he
1. Still very excited when people come over, especially my old dad for whom Gogh seems to have no respect. he is ne never angry or anything, but does play bark a bit to see if people want to play... I try to correct but often just give him a five minute crate time out... can I expect him to grow out of this a bit?
2. I use the command "Place" to get him to come stand next to me on my left side: now the problem is I have been using this when we have been training on loose leash walking and then he responds buy either backing up if he is in front, or doing a uturn on my left side if he has space... now that we have started practicing a little off leash command I would rather have him come through my right side to sit on my left, cmoing from behind my back... any ideas how to aproach it? or perhaps it is rather unimportant from which side he comes? its just I see people on shows and the dog always comes to place in the same way...
3.Scar tissue.. he has a couple of places, one on his head and one on the tip of his ear, where he has had a scratch from running into variouse things, lol, but especially the one on the ear does not seem to have hair growing back on it... thoughts??
