I need any suggestions getting my 5mth old Sydney to come back into the house from the garden after his evening constitutional! Last night I tried every concievable bride to try & get him back in. I even locked the door & switched the lights out but that soon became a game. I resorted to chasing him around the garden & eventually fell over. I limped off into the house & he eventually followed! He is going to dog obedience lessons but we have not covered retrieval yet!
I dont know what the connection is, but I just have to say to otto, COME AND SEE in an excited voice and he comes running, we used to say this to our other little dogs and they did the same, with a treat at the end of it.

HI,seems we have the same problem, I might as well talk to the garden fence as try to get Charlie in the house! He will run around in circles and pinch the washing just waiting for us to chase him.Charlie is also 5 months and I am hoping he will grow out of It .I have to go into the garden then run in the house and he usually follows,then someone shuts the door quickly behind him so he cannot run back out. THE THINGS WE DO
