    Bring treats and ask for a different behavior. The problem with “leave it” is it’s hard for them to understand - it’s easier to teach them what to do instead. We always teach “leave it -come...

    I think you are asking a lot wanting them to respond to a command when you are not there to reinforce it. What exactly is the problem with them being outside?

    Scully had acupuncture as an adjunct to NSAIDS for her severely arthritic elbows for the last few years of her life. I can’t swear it helped her that much, but it certainly didn’t hurt and she...
