If leashing is an option, then why not try doing that... or buy one of those things where you can put him on a lead and attach it to like a clothes line.... this way he is out having fun, but can not get into trouble
    I think that leashing him and being focused on his training will be best. i couldn't stand leaving him at home, I would be so sad.

    I've actually given him melatonin before when we have gone place and it took a bit of the edge off of him. what do you think the vet would give him?
    i'm going to probably have to do a combination of training, leashing and melatonin to keep him from being so wild when we go places.

    I'm sure your vet could prescribe something. I have heard of people giving their dogs dramamine,just to settle their dogs in the car. With Bullies,I would not give anything without speaking to the vet first. You could try benedryl,if it makes him drowsy. It doesn't affect my dogs that way,but it does for some.
