Hi, I have not had to ask advice here for a while now.However Buddy, now almost 2 years old, has resorted back to bad habits when out on his run. He is naturally a very boisterous dog, full of energy and very bouncy! In the last few days, has just refused to come at the end of a walk.Just running off and barking.Also for a good proportion of the off lead walk is jumping up and barking like crazy. My poor husband has worked so hard with Buddy and was beginning to think this behaviour had stopped! Can anyone give any advice please. Buddy has a VERY strong character and given in to would love to take command.At home he barks for our attention and if it is the "wrong" attention ignoring him works..but this is different if we stop to talk to someone and Buddy begins barking to tell us he wants to go. We cannot afford to let Bud slip back to thinking he is controlling us.Indoors we have sussed but wow he is literally regressed to running circles around my husband on walks! i.e.
I am retired, married, live in Somerset. love animals though dogs are my favourite,My old rescue dog passed away very recently and have now have a lovely pup called Buddy. Am looking forward to long walks with him. Am going through the toilet training bit now, and the mouthing of course. Like reading, almost anything.
