When you are the new pup, you have to test all of the boundaries. We have discovered a couple of Frankie’s “challenges” (one being the desire to shred his dog blanket in his crate, but we are here today to talk about the other). Frankie rides in the Jeep very well – while it is moving or the engine is running. But once you park the Jeep and turn off the engine, he is ready to get out and go on an adventure. A few times now that has meant not even waiting for a door to be opened. Nope, he just exits through a window.
Since all of the dogs ride with seat belts on, this does not quite gain the freedom he is after. He ends up just, well, hanging around.
While the pictures are funny, the situation is serious. We, obviously, will not leave him unsupervised in the Jeep until this habit is broken. And he is monitored very closely while we are driving even though he has shown no inclination of leaving the Jeep while the engine is running. Patience and gentle corrections will guide our little Frankie to the proper behavior in the Jeep.
