First, I’ve always wanted a dog. I think it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I own a mini Wheaten Terrier. Very smart dogs... but training has taken a lot longer than I thought. It’s silly to think that a dog should just know the rules of appropriate in-house behavior but I’m on a repetitive loop of teaching this dog what not to do and it’s exhausting. For those who relate, what’s something you didn’t expect when you first became a pet owner?
