Leashing while in the house...
1 Attachment(s)
So I have never done this before.. Titan was always pretty good and I just thought I didn't need to with athena... let me just say something.. wow.. I was wrong lol. I am puppy sitting an 11 week old Akita and she is this little investigator.. can't follow her around all the time and I was getting frustrated because I couldn't do anything. Lol I finally resorted to leashing her to me..... brilliant.. just brilliant. Lol that's all.. just wanted to share my discovery that you all have known and been telling people lol..

I've never tethered a puppy to me before, but I have used a lightweight nylon leash as a drag line for my last 3 puppies. If they tried to wander off I could just grab the leash if I was sitting on the floor with them, or step on it if I was standing. VERY handy!

That is a gorgeous Akita pup. I wanted an Akita, but couldn't afford a purebred and I refuse any mix when it comes to that particular breed. I leash August in the house sometimes tonavoid destruction. I really think if I ever have another puppy that I will do it from the start. Its a good way to get stuff done, and keep an eye on the dog.

I will let her mom know :) she got her from a breeder, I know that much, not sure where though. I know for sure I will be doing something of the sort when I get my puppy next year! :)

I tethered with Shasta though I didn't need to for very long with her and I tethered with Dax and with him, it was off and on as needed until recently! Its effective!
