6 month old puppy question(keeping on lead in the house)
For the most part since I got my pup at two months old I have kept him on a lead in the house. For the last few weeks I haven't been but I'm not sure if I still should be.
He no longer gets into things and he's getting better and better about coming when I call him. So for example if I'm going to a different room in the house if he doesn't follow me(which he's been doing more lately) then I will call him.
The main issue is the cats, he's not interested in killing them or intentionally hurting them... He will just chase them and try to play by putting a paw on their backs and sometimes mouthing them. He will stop when I say leave it but he will not stop the chase part and of course I am worried about him accidentally hurting them. Two of my cats know how to avoid him, one doesn't run and will tell him off but my male Siamese is becoming buddies with him and is making the training aspect more difficult for me because he likes to be chased. They are buddies though, they will lay together and Ollie will groom him...
Do you think I should go back to keeping him on lead? May sound like a stupid question, I'm just curious about people's opinions.
