So much of everything, is how I describe Chloe. Chloe is 5 months old. Chloe is from what I gather, a typical high needs, high energy Vizsla. Some days I want to scream. Today, I wanted to cry. We have a dog trainer, and Chloe loves to work for us. However, she is bored. She gets 3-4 15 min walks on leash a day. Sprinkled cues on the walks to work her mind. She will (in low excitement) sit, stay, come, drop it, turn around, hide, and a little heel. Been working a lot of leash manners mostly. But I can not do anything else. I have a 7 year old that I homeschool, and a husband who works. I’m torn in the training.... she whines when I leave the main room. She has to be on leash/collar throughout the rear house to avoid destruction. So is being on leash with me all day, so I can give corrections the right thing, or is it making her more needy? It’s driving me crazy. And sometimes she just doesn’t listen at all and goes bonkers. And affection.... should it be limited? They are loving dogs, but does the affection minimize the effects of leadership which this very hyper needy dog also needs? Will it cause horrible separation anxiety that I read so much about in here? Confused and hoping there’s an end in sight.
