Thanx debbie. I agree with you. I try to spend more time with him on weekends and on my days off. I would like to house train him but i know that requires consistency and commitment and being a working mom makes it sooo hard. He is so awesome as a guard, though. He barks at anything that moves. I know some people crate or chain their dogs for long periods of time but panthro is out & about. Well, hopefully ill find a solution with some help around here. Thanx a bunch!
