Hello My Blue heeler Bandit is one year and 4 months. He has always been extremely social and does wonderful with children. We travel to all different states for work and he is very used to moving to different places. I take him to the dog park every day long walks in the morning and lots of play time during the day. we play fetch and frisbee. My concern is that he is becoming bored. He is starting to bark at people that walk by. He now jumps up and nips at there hands. He just started barking at people that lean down and try to pet him. what can i do to help prevent him from doing this? and what are some other fun tricks we can do together around the house and out side?
