Bodie is soooo much better in the backyard! We think the longline did its job, enough that we have not been using it this week. He comes in when we want him to, and the barking has really calmed down. He still barks, of course, especially with noisy trail users, but it is not the frantic barking from earlier in the summer.
I just wonder how he will react when we have a handyman come to the house today? I will be at work, so my sweetie will have to handle it. I hope it goes smoothly.
