Guest davijr84 Posted August 8, 2013 Share Posted August 8, 2013 Hi all, We just adopted our first grey on Sunday, and he's been doing excellent thus far. We live in a townhouse with a decent-sized fenced yard (approx. 1/4 acre). Our HOA allows a maximum fence height of 4', which we currently have in the form of a stockade fence. The first several times we let out the new guy, I walked with him on the leash in the yard. Now I've been letting him out off leash in the yard, and he's been fine. He typically does his business and comes back inside. Running along the length of our yard is a walking trail that many kids play and bike on, and people walk their dogs along. A couple of times, he has gone over to the fence and gone up on his hind legs to see what was going on- our foster's told us he loves attention from other people and dogs when they walked him so I'm assuming he just wants to be petted and play with others. Every time he's done this, I've been right there with him and given him a stern no and pulled him down in an effort to correct him. Is there anything else I can do that anyone can recommend, any tips/tricks that have worked for others in this situation, or should I just keep correcting him when he does this and hope he learns it's not acceptable? Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
