Potty training and other problems from seperation
I have a great German Shorthaired Pointer a little over one year old. I am having problems with him because it seems that he will choose not to be alone even in extreme circumstances.
One problem is that I will let him run into the large fenced in backyard and he will go a few meters from the gate, urinate then run back to me as fast as he can. Then we will go inside and he will poop inside not too much later. This rarely happens but it still happens and is upsetting. Sometimes Ill remind him to go poop and hell run out, do it, then return.
Another issue is eating. I will fill his food bowl which is only a few rooms away and return to work around the house etc. He will follow me and I need to make special trips to the water and food bowls so he will drink or eat.
I am not sure what to do to mitigate this. He is an extremely intelligent dog so him not grasping this is really baffling to me. Any advise is appreciated.
