I have a 9 year old labrador who will refuse to come home after a walk. I walk him for at least 1 hour which we both enjoy, but he stops just at the end of the street (no matter which direction) and he can't be moved. He is approx 36 kilos so I cant not physically move him. He is not tempted by food and I often have to tie him up and pick him up the car. Each time I try a new trick it will work once, then he learns and refuses move to the next day... HELP! I'm at a loss, as I cant walk him anymore!
My 16month old Labrador keeps emptying her water bowls when we leave the house. No matter how many we put in the yard when we get home they are all empty or tipped over. Not just when we go to work for the day even if we leave for an hour when we get home the water bowls are empty. It's frustrating more so for the fact when we are at work she leaves herself with no water for the whole day if she does it early on in the day. Is there ways to train her to stop doing this?
