We have had our puppy, Olive, for 5 weeks now. On the advice of our Vet, we are keeping her in the house and in our rather small yard until she is through with her vaccinations. We have been using a 10-foot leash outside for everything -- potty, playing, exploring. She has pretty much had free rein on that, but has now developed a habit of eating just about everything she can get her little teeth on. We are working on "leave it" and "drop it," but once she is focused on a particularly desirable morsel, there is little hope of distracting her even with high value treats. I am afraid that these backyard sessions can be a real pain, especially at night, when she can indulge her fondness for clumps of moss undeterred because it is so dark outside that I cannot always see what she is doing and try to distract her. Meanwhile, the time is approaching when we will want to be able to take her on walks, and I'm concerned that because she thinks of a leash as "time to romp and forage" this will be a difficult transition, to say the least. I have read numerous posts that describe puppies joyfully following their owners around the yard receiving delicious treats along the way, and I can see that I have waited too long and allowed bad habits to develop. I would love some advice from someone more experienced as to how to turn this train around. Thanks so much!
