....to throw in the towel? I don't know how much longer I can put up with Rocky. The big problems now are excessive chewing as well as jumping on people. The Gentle Leader that I bought for him worked so well, but he found it during the night and by morning had one end chewed off. Yesterday a neighbor gave me a type of harness which I noticed this morning he had chewed one end off. It was obviously new so I'm going to have to find another one and pay her the amount it costs. If I try another collar or lead, it's going to be a metal one.
I've been feeling really ill since yesterday - every bone and muscle in my body aches from being pulled; I've developed a problem with itching - forget what they call it - but it's driving me bonkers! I don't have a rash of any sort.
So I am going to try once more to find a suitable collar and lead that Rocky can't chew up. If that doesn't work, then I'm going to find another home for him. I really do love that dog, but he is so boistrous and strong that I know it's just a matter of time until I have a serious accident.
Several people have told me about a man in the park that is excellent in dog training, so I may try him as a last resort.
Have a good weekend!
