Hello all! I just had a quick rant to throw down... So recently my in-laws have been puppy-sitting Kenzii while we work three nights a week. Kenz is about 8 months old now and the only reactive dog I've ever owned, but we've been trying to work through her issues, and as far as I'm concerned she's drastically improved. She's stopped barking at everything that moves, saving her outbursts for the obviously scary things, like cardboard boxes and men with beards. So I was a bit taken aback when I went to pick up the baby a few nights back and as soon as I walked through the door my mother-in-law was hurling accusations at me. She's saying that Kenzii has all this pent-up stress because her schedule is "over regimented" and her outbursts are a rebellion against her "structured and sheltered life". Now, we live in Missoula Montana, which is known for its wide selection of hiking trails and recreational areas, so we rarely visit the same hike site twice. Kenzii is constantly being exposed to new scenery, new people and new dogs. We frequently visit the local Bark Park and she comes to the campus with me several times a week. Really the only structured, routine thing in her life is feeding times. And I suppose the fact that she's not allowed on furniture is over regimenting... Sorry, guys. Not sure what I was trying to accomplish with this post other than to let off a little steam. Thanks for reading, anyone who made it through!
