Exactly. It was 1 out of 10 times that he just wanted to have fun and considering how very little fun he's had over the past month, I decided to go with it. He came in and plopped to the floor with a sigh but looked very happy he was allowed to play just for a little bit.

wolfy dog You can call it clownish behavior or other euphemisms but IMHO I think you need to start serious training with this dog or it won't be so fun down the road anymore. After the first rodeo (I called it the same as you do) I started the prong collar and practiced consistently NILIF. Now I have a very nice behaving adolescent male and no more rodeo.

it's not a matter of his age... He's on my schedule. I'm a night owl so he is too. I'm still up at 2 am.

I'd suggest high-value treats if he is food motivated or a high-value toy.

Also, chasing and lassoing a dog in his eyes might be 'fun' so you're simply reenforcing a bad behavior.

You could also put him on a long lead and practice recall. If he doesn't listen, real him in when you want to go inside.
He doesn't chase the laser pointer. It's really more the sound of the keychain part when I pick it up that he associates with coming to me.

Usually when I grab his lead he comes because he wants to see where I'm taking him. It is fun. I was cracking up . Sometimes they just do stuff that drives you bonkers and you know you should correct it but when it is 2 am and you just want to go to bed it's just easier to laugh at their insanity. Either that or go insane yourself.

It's not really a lasso. Just in case there's anyone out there thinking I'm playing rodeo clown with my dog. I need a flexilead. It's been decided.

I wish dogs could talk. I would have loved to hear what he was thinking last night. Tonight he's been awesome. He goes out and does his business. I've been hiding toys around the house inside to keep his mental stimulation up so he doesn't get bored.

He won't go to the bathroom on the leash so I have to let him out to potty and sometimes he disagrees lol
