I actually LIKE that we can't leave stuff lying about the house! It is a huge help in keeping the house clean. My basenjis trained my kids to not leave their crap all over the place better than I ever did!
I also don't think training has been any more difficult – I had a dobie about 20 yrs ago who was more challenging in many ways, LOL -- but it is different. You just have to take a different approach, that's all.
