My guide dog puts everything in sight in his mouth too. Socks, shoes, hair ties, you name it, he's tried it.

whatever makes you more confortable, I just don't like any method of travel except me, my legs, and the sidewalk. I have enough vission for now anyway.
What do you want to do with your life?


Re:i need help with my dog



oh, i know another person who feels the same way. idk i just didn't like the kind of attention the cane brought me, but the way people interact with me and kylee is better. i personally think that i walk a heck of a lot faster with kylee and i feel so much more confident with her. :)

Re:i need help with my dog



Best way to train a dog is through it's stomach.
You could try putting something in front of it that it would be tempted to eat and tell it to to leave it.
Have a nice dog treat ready for the dog.
If the dog ignores the thing you've put in front of it, give it a nice dog treat, if it goes for the item pull it away and tell it no.
Make it wait a minute for a treat every time it disobeys you.
It will soon learn that if it leaves it, it gets a treat.
If not it gets yanked back and left for a minute with no treat.
