    Why is a dog always on the wrong side of the door?

    every time I put the dog out, he wants to come in. when he's in, he wants to go out!

    This is funny! Dogs are often mistaken for independent thinkers but they are not. They much prefer the pack mentality, you see. So, when they go out they really and truly want you to go with them! Honestly. This is why you sometimes get the in or out, dog, which is it going to be? They just want our company, that's all.

    I find my dogs are happy to be where I am, whether that's in or out - it's the cats who are always the wrong side of the door in my house!
    You might find a structured routine helps, perhaps actively going out with the dog into the yard or garden for 5 minutes every 2 hours or so, to make sure it has toileted if it needs to.

    Because dogs are really smart, they just want to be where the action is all the time.
