My dog plays too rough!
I recently rescued a 2 year old lab/St. Bernard mix. He's 75 pounds and is house trained. I have two problems.
1. When playing, he lunges at me from about 4-5 feet away while mouthing. I've followed advice to immediately stop playing. He gets it for a few minutes but resumes the following time he plays. Its violent and unsafe. What can I do?
2. I need a place for him to run and play, but most of the nearby dog parks are not fully fenced in. He has escaped before and I spent hours chasing him down. He is still learning his name and I can't risk losing him again. How can I get him full exercise when he doesn't know his name and can't be trusted unleashed?
