George adjusts, and learns the ropes
Did you have any luck finding out where you purchased the pink ball toy? I found one similar to it on ebay and he had it destroyed in 5 minutes! I know you felt bad that it was a pink ball, but we really liked it.
Breeder’s Note: No, we cannot find another ball like that one. It seemed to be the best toy we had for George (as he was a bit older by the time he left OwyheeStar). Too bad he destroyed your new find in five minutes. He must have enjoyed it, but the joy was short-lived.
Breeder’s Note: Although the Weimaraner is a wonderful companion, they are also challenging. One wrong turn can create a wealth of issues. The ONLY way it works, as far as we have ever seen, is for the owner/handler to start the journey, and to work through the issues as they arise. These critters will find every weak spot, and push every button. It is nothing personal. It is their way. They are not for the person who doesn’t get them. Hopefully, George will realize soiling in the house is not pleasing to you, and he will want to comply with your wishes more than not. We are big on freedom is earned. Opportunity to do things can get the Weimaraner into trouble, and all too soon lead to behavior issues. It only takes fourteen days to forge a habit.
Now we just have to do something with all of his ENERGY 🙂
Breeder’s Note: Yes, they have a lot of energy–two speeds (on and off). Sometimes I think of it as full speed ahead rather than ‘on’. They keep us active.
I hope that you and Cliff are doing well.
