Hi all! So I posted on here back when my dog was about a third of the size she is now. It seems like ages ago! Now she's 8 months, and has had 2 months or so of being off the lead in parks and having a good old run around. I suppose this is a well treaded problem. To begin with she was still apprehensive about the whole world, and wouldn't stray too far from me, and she would come every time I say "here!". I thought she was a model dog! The past week or so, and I'm guessing this is associated with adolescence, she has started ignoring me. She'd prefer to be sniffing the grass or mooching around than coming to me. And often if I go to get her, she'll run off a little bit. She doesn't stray off that far, she just doesn't want to come to me. Problem is, she prefers to be snooping around in the grass and flowers than have a treat, so I don't know how to get her! At home and in the garden she's perfect still, coming to me every time. But in the park she just doesn't care. I've tried bringing carrots (which she adores!) and special fishy treats, but nothing seems to interest her enough to get her attention. Is this just a phase? What is the best course of action for when she starts ignoring me? Tips would be super super appreciated!
