I have a dog that is full of energy ALL the time. And I have nieghbor boys that want to play baseball, football, basketball, ALL the time. With those two situations , I now have ran into an issue with the dog has figured out that he can jump out of the backyard. (have to love living in the city). My question is, what do you guys think about tying a dog up on a long rope. Will this hurt his drive. ie will he get the mind set that, oh i am on this line so there is not need for me to chase it. Or will it teach him to respect his boundaries. I plan on only putting him on the rope when I am not able to be in the yard, and we will continue to train on a regular basis. 4-5 times/week. Just curious I have mixed feelings about it. Just wondering what you guys think.
