I moved from a large house to an apt last year. My high energy dog has been confined to 3+ rooms. It's now over 100* daily so we are confined inside most of the day.
I started bringing him to my dog sitter a few days a week. He's either there while I run errands or overnights. They love him to pieces. He has a bold funny personality that makes us laugh a lot. They also play play play with him and take him for long walks. They have a big house which allows him to literally run around the house in circles with his toys, hit the dog door running to bark at the birds and play Frisbee on the cul de sac.
When I go to pick him up he walks back in the house. I can't say I blame him. I feel like my child won't come out of the pool and wants 5 more minutes. We are stuck in an apt until the housing market turns around. I keep telling myself it's because they are the 'fun' house. We have to bribe him with food to get him in the car. I'm starting to take it personally.
Thoughts anyone? Thanks...
