    Dog Training Forum
    Hello, I've got an almost 4 month old Cavalier puppy. During the first month and a half we've had him, I've made sure there is someone around him at most times. This is mainly so he can go outside when he needs to, and get plenty of time to play! Now I'm worried I've gotten him too attached...
  4. Car Rides - Need Suggestions
