I have had my dog(mix of SHeba enu, finnishspitz,i'm not sure what else,99.8%human female) for 7+ yrs. I got her when she was only 6 wks. I never had a pet before and when I adopted her I was in a terrible stage,I was in the midst of the beginning of a mental breakdown..I had no clue how to train her, therefore she has trained me. The only thing i was able to do was to go to the bathroom outside.
However, she is a manipulative female human oops I mean dog..she knows we won't go in unless she does everythign so there are night where we will be out for 1 hour. I live in new york city,and we do go out alot. But we walk where she wants to, and there are many stores that are very doggy friendly and give treats to dogs thatcome into their store, Remy remembers what stores they are and pulls me there.
My parents livein NJ and when we go out there I let her off leash in a park for ex. however she will not come whn I say come or stop when i say stop, i never trained her. She also man
I recommend that you hire a professional dog trainer. vetcare
