Anyone done it? When we moved into town the plan was to bring our Boxer in town with us after we got the backyard fenced. Well, DH and I have decided we don't want to fence the backyard because then it splits our acre lot up and will make it just too small and we can't afford to fence the entire thing. Our Boxer is over at my BIL's house right now and we really really need to get a plan together on brining him home to us. The next door neighbors have a chain link fence and 3 indoor/outdoor dogs (they have a doggy door) and they already bark a lot so adding our Boxer to the backyard with a fence he can see through is going to make for a very noisy situation I think. My SIL has informed me that my Boxer has recently taken to barking all night long, yippee :roll: DH and I are just really stuck on what the heck to do now. My pooch will be 8 years old this fall and has hip displaysia, I'm not comfortable giving him to anyone else, he's my baby and I just don't trust that anyone will take care of him like I will. I mentioned brining him here and training him as an inside dog. I really don't want a dog in the house that sheds like him but I guess I'll learn to deal for him. What I'm wondering though is if anyone has any experience house training an older dog? He's never been in any house ever so it'll be a completely new experience for him and I have a whole house full of new furniture and new cabinets. I'm so stuck on what to do!!!! If money was no object I'd fence the entire back yard for him but that's just not feasible with as much land as we have here.
