For three months she got hind and water and her kennel was cleaned daily, bnt she got m further at- tention. In nay mind, I doubted that I was going to be able to get through to her. "Therefore, when bird seascm ended and I had no further ex- cuses for avoiding Clan, I was amazed to find that she was a changed dog! I brought her out of the kennel and called her to come to me. She came! I said sit and she sat, heel and she heeled. Stay and she stayed It was incredible. After 15 minutes of assuring my- self that Clap was actually reslxmd- ing, I took her into the hmse. Her behavior, on command, was per- fect. "What I had done was let Glee grow up a little. She'd outgrown her puppy rambunctiousness and finally realized that it was better to do what she was told than to be left in the kennel forever. Today she is the best behaved dog I bare." This does not infer that all dogs will outgrow their bad habits as time passes, nor is it suggested that you just sit back and let a dog grow up before cracking down on his be- havior. But it is possible that many of the toughest training problems sometimes can't be solved until the dog matures, and then they seem to soh,e themselves. Often the best thing to do when an impasse is reached in training is to put the dog back in the kermel for a spell, giving him time to think things over and mature. Don't leave him there until he reaches old age - hut perhaps let a few weeks pass. dm licem deadline nean for the 1976 must be sent to Natural Resources "Applications not be accepted," chief Dan E. are urged to their applications the deadline. available at all county clerks' offices, license agents and Department of Natural Resources district offices.
