Fast reply! To be honest, my MAIN worry with the Sammy is the barking. I NEED to train it how to not bark if possible...not bark especially IF I neeed to leave him home for maximum an hour or so. I have some VERY weird ngihbours and to make it all worse, I live in flats! So, I'm hoping I can somehow train him how barking is a big BOO BOO when I'm not around.... I intend on taking him everywhere with us...even to work - it's no problem. BUT, sometimes simple tasks such as going to the supermarket for a half hour or so make it impossible for me to take him with me because they are obiously not allowed inside and the though of leaving him inside the car freaks me out... So if you have any tips, please let us know - greatly appreciated. Thanks Jean, sorry to bother you again and ENJOY THE VACATION! Sarah.
