Thread: Training your Dog

    Training your Dog

    You get your pup , you get him checked out , you build him a kennel and run , you feed him , you get him toys to keep him busy , more jags , walk him 3 times a day,give him more cuddles than the wife gets , and you train him to sit /stay/walk on and point hoping one day it will be worth it - but wait a minute did you train him not to rip and chew and demolish the rear of your jeep when you leave him for 2 minutes to open a gate? . I wonder how many vehicles have been raped by a innocent pup.

    Ain't it the truth. My latest Labrador (well-adjusted, family orientated, calm dogs, Labradors) decided as a puppy that the thing to do was to chew his way through walls! Still, I think my patching up with a bit of filler would have been cheaper than car innards. Console yourself with the fact that he'll settle down, sooner or later.

    Am gutted I only got rid of ma spares about 2 months ago and the fact I had a spare leather rear seat grinds on me, a new he was a bit agitated and could see him jumping around but thought he was excited, when a opened the back door it was like a bomb had went of, a was even thinking about getting another vehicle quite soon but a can see a dog cage being purchased first

    Never had this problem due to using a crate/box when having the dogs in the car. This solves all the problems and seeing how much people have paid out for trashed interiours, the 350 I paid Lintran for a box seems pretty good value for money

    I bought an expensive dog guard for my disco to keep my pup in the back where I thought he could do no damage, but I forgot about the seat belts for the rear fold down seats, both of which he chewed through.
    I decided not to replace them until the MOT was due and during that time he never touched them again. Two days before the MOT I fitted new ones, my wife suggested I remove them afterwards until next years MOT was due, "NO he wont chew them now". DUH!!! The day after it had passed we went to the NGO game fair, about an hour into the journey my wife said he's up to no good in the back, stop and have a look. GUESS WHAT, yep I now need a new rear seat belt. I hate hearing the words "I TOLD YOU SO".
