jodi0553 Posted June 5, 2012 Share Posted June 5, 2012 (edited) I'm about to lose my mind! The squirrels and chipmunks have decided that Finn is in no way a threat through the glass door. We have a constant supply of falling maple "propellers" and the little critters spend their entire days eating them on the porch. I sweep them up and then the next day, fresh supply, there is no way to keep up with it. The little buggers will just sit there and munch less than a foot from Finn's face. He'll be making a ruckus and pawing madly at the glass and they just keep on munching away knowing that he can't get to them. I've gotten him to be quiet generally while watching his critters in the backyard, as he can see about 30 feet away through the window and there is almost always a squirrel in the yard, but when they are SO CLOSE, he just doesn't have enough self control to quietly watch. He's a 5 month old ratting dog with incredible prey drive - I really can't expect him to be able to calm down when they are literally up his nose! We're working on it, but it is slow going. Any suggestions besides a "calm down" command of sorts? Here's 30 seconds of what I get to listen to...
