They all do that when you first find them.. Then they get comfortable and they start misbehaving.. Lol- I'm kiddingSo far this pup is really obedient. Learned her name in about 30 minutes. Taught her to sit in probably 15 minutes. Doesn't mess up the garden.. knock on wood. She also loves water. I sprayed her with a hose with no leash on and showered her. She just stood in place lol.
