Would you force them?

Post by Thumper2001 on Mon Jun 09, 2014 7:02 pm

Some evenings, it's a struggle getting Molly and Junior downstairs. This is nothing new, so not Noah related. I've just always made them come out for a run about. It just occurred to me the other day that I'm maybe being a bit mean forcing them out. Would you make them come out for a while or leave them in their pen?

They come out ok in the mornings!

If they were settled in and content personally I wouldn't. But now since it is part of the evening routine they might resent it if you departed from that regimen. With most of our buns a departure from their set routine was met with great displeasure and protest.

Maybe it's just the chase they enjoy Laughing

I have to chase Junior back up every night. Apparently when I go up behind Molly without chasing him he thumps in his castle until I come back down! I had no idea he does this until OH told me last week Laughing

Just in case I'm not being very clear... I was always going to still open the pen and try to let them out daily, I was just looking for thoughts on those odd days where they don't seem to want to come downstairs Very Happy

Could you leave their room door open so they could bring themselves down if they wanted to?

I think is they are not all that bothered I wouldn't force them, I am sure they will come down when they are good and ready!

I'm afraid not Sad Molly would be peeing all over my spare bed and Junior would be eating every door/skirting board/door farm in sight!

When I had three buns and a house with stairs, I used to shout "bed bed bed" and most of the time they would go into our bedroom like good little buns, however, if I were tired or not feeling well, they would pay up like naughty children LOL!!
