fitting in dog training for parents of teenage kids?
a near neighbour used to help me out with training and i got him interested in tracking and some more formal obed, he enjoyed it but he and his wife both work and when they are not working they are a cab service for their teenage kids, football, ballet lessons, swimming.......
their feet never touch the ground, they are always exhausted and spending money all the time, as a result the dog is basically neglected in the back yard and sees them when they are rushing around before work/school and then chills with them while for some time while they veg out in front of the box, meals etc.
never having bred i never really thought about the amount of time families take up, the dog is a nice boy, he is a pet/show line Rott and doesn't not appear to need a lot of work....but still.
i appreciatte what you family types do to keep it together but how??
that question refers to finding time to train a dog to be more than a pet.
