Just how much does Krypto weigh now? I keep imagining a huge dog in your future....lol!
I taught Charlie to sit - then lay down. But when he did "down" he had his back feet ready for lift off off. So I taught him to move his back legs to the side so he wasn't poised to take off at a run. It worked. I make a "shush" noise and if necessary I wave my hand sideways. Now he auto moves into that relaxed position...but if he hears some thing....he goes right into the alert position.
Pawing .. oh gosh, Charlie paws me all the time for all types of reasons. In fact he just did as I'm typing this. 8-) his tail is wagging, also he will act as if he is grabbing a part of me with his teeth. He wants out.
Now he is standing ,& staring at me intently.
Its 12:45... he doesn't go out till 2:15 or so.
I hate when he stares at me. He never blinks moves, nothing. Dang it. Lolol He just went fir his ball and stared at me more. Finally he laid down - with ball in mouth.
Love All Life, Thank You For Posting! :)
