Should I let my dog roam the house when i'm not around?
Quesiton: Hey Jeremy I have a 9 week old black lab pup that I bred from my male and female. I've done every thing up till now they way you teach in your videos . My question is what do I do with the pup when not training and am around the house. Do I let him roam house or keep in create?
Answer: My pups have 3 options until they prove to be trusted otherwise.
1. On their place. 2. In their kennel/crate. 3. With me under 100% supervision.
Those three options ensure that they succeed. As they get older, they earn my trust and with that can come more freedom. Honestly, most of my dogs lay on their beds by choice after it becomes such habit and seen as a safe spot. I hope that helps, Jeremy
