wanting outside inside outside inside.
okay, i have a bit of a dilemma, My lab and my GSD, love it outside, and also inside.. so they love to whine and hit my blinds to go outside to pee, so i let them out, that's fine, but then they want to come in, (also fine) and about ten min later they want to go out to play. then they realize they want to come in, or they start digging and i make them come in. Im going crazy for the fact that i cant ignore them because they cry so loud to go outside, or they bark and scratch/jump at the door to come in.
I am apprehensive about getting a dog door because i dont want to give them to much control (moslty my lab, she is the equivelent of a spoiled 17 year old) and i dont want them really freaking out they cant go outside if i close the door off and the have to stay inside for some reason unknown to them.
what im really asking is either should i get a dog door? or how would i teach them to deal with the fact the I decide when they can or cant go outside..
did i make any sense?
