Re: My clingy Vizla is a SUFFOCATING ME!
While I believe this breed needs more attention than other breeds. I also believe they need to be taught, that a little alone time is okay.
If you let them help you, any work you do can take 3x as long to get done.
Why not put the pup up. Either by crating, or teaching them to lay in a certain area. Doing this gives you more time for quality interaction with your dog, along with teaching the dog its okay to be alone for a time. If a dog does not learn this they become unhappy, and keep demanding more. You keep giving them more, but because they didn't learn to settle without you, its never enough.
These type of dogs remind me of the spoilt kids, that we have all seen at the store. Given everything, but falling out in a fit for more.
Dogs just like kids need boundaries. Set some and you will get a happier dog, even though she is going to protest at first.
Not all those who wander are lost.
Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.
Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.
