On Sunday, if you would like, I'll go through a long list of things that 'can' possibly ruin a dog. I'll help you come up with a list of household rules for Poppy that you need to stick to and a training/exercise plan for you to do with her. I know that you probably have a good idea of what you want/need, but it helps a lot if you have it written down.
I have been working on a similar plan for Batty as you know and I am certain that I can give you plenty of information, tricks, hints and tips for her. I'll start working on it today and run through it with you on Sunday, but if you'd rather we just talked about it then I don't mind at all.
It can be frustrating for everyone, as sometimes the message doesn't get across and sometimes it takes three or four tries of explaining the same thing before it becomes clear to another person. I think the majority of the frustration stems from being unable to communicate with a person as well as they'd like. Sometimes what is crystal clear to them may be as clear as mud to someone else.
I hope that kind of makes sense to everyone!
