I have a bit of a reoccurring problem with my 11 month old American bulldog at the moment- pulling clothes off the line and making a nice mess of them. I realize the cause is most probably boredom but I don't know how to solve it other than giving him exercise and other things to play with. He only does it when I put things on the line then leave for work or to run errands - something I have to do! We have a rope swing on a nearby tree and a yard full of chew toys and balls, as well as another dog for him to play with.
Laundry is my most hated chore and I'm damn sick of doing it twice over- especially as my husband is a chef and those white jackets are particularly hard to clean after they've been rubbed into the grass and dirt. Any ideas how to stop it? I've obviously tried big booming 'no's but other than that I have no idea how to handle it.
