What are some things I can use to make myself more interesting to Bella? She's food motivated, but not that food motivated. She's toy motivated, but not that toy motivated. Lately we've had to resort to putting her on on a tie-out when we let her outside because she just doesn't want to come inside anymore. (She doesn't have a reliable recall, obviously.) Running around the backyard and playing in the grass are her favorite activities. Or maybe being inside the house is her least favorite thing! I'm just finding it impossible to make her think of me as the coolest thing in her life. She'd much rather run around outside by herself or check out new people and smells while we're on a walk. Is there some magical item that no dog can resist??
