Today we worked on leash management. Or, dog management via leash. Whatever! Through trial and error, I think I've concluded that for OUR dog at least, a series of short corrections works better than a long, drawn out tug of war, constant-strain-on-the-leash approach.
In other news, we tired of Gunnar shredding the old towels and blankets we used to line his crate. He seems to enjoy shredding them. Tearing everything into tiny little pieces, some of which occasionally hang from his canines. So....., we replaced that stuff with a nice padded cushion from the store. Which lasted ALMOST one day. Mary came home from morning run to find it demolished. If this continues, the plastic tray in the bottom of the crate will be all he has. Grrrrrr.
