Hey Chris - How you and Charlie doing ? Brynn and i have been very busy with out of town guests .She is getting ready for her surgery next weekend . My baby is growing up so fast !
Hope all is well with you guys :))
ok Bailey's got down DOWN!! i couldnt help but try again when i got home and he finally did it consistently. haha. well only if theres a treat on the floor. gotta work on that. once perfected.... bye bye treats! thanks for the encouragement!
Haha.. But guess what.. I've already seen that video! LOL! I was trying to look for tips, and I actually ran across that video.. And at the end I found myself scratching my head saying.. Wow oh great that was a lot of help! =P Yeah he'll eventually get it!!! It is a short legged thing!! =) Thanks!
hes actually a VERY obedient dog, so i am really starting to think the nipping is just out of instinct/wanting to play and a puppy thing. He'll sit whenever i tell him to, even without a treat. That's cause I taught him the first day he came home at 8 weeks. he's really good about that. And he knows wait (for me to put down something and say OK! before he can go near it like treats/food bowl), jump (over my leg since hes still a tiny thing) and im having the hardest time teaching down (I haven't much attempted cause it seems to be goign nowhere). I'm going to work on drop it/take it, I saw your post in another forum. Going to try that this weekend! I think he's just easily bored. Gonna get him some kibble dispensing and other toys this weekend.
Hi Chris & Charlie! This is kinda a side question on the snapping issue in the forum. Instead of posting it there, I thought I'd ask you there. As you might know, Bailey currently has a problem with biting peoples pant leg's and then if we try to stop him or get him off the pant or shirt- he'll go for our feet or hands. I asked my breeder, and she recommended a spray bottle. Spray and follow with a "NO!". Before trying this, I was wondering what you think?!?!
Chris - your answer was not too long - it's what I had been guessing about Kai. He is the sweetest dog, just every other dog seems to want to prove how macho they are around him - and Kai just looks at me like "what did I do" I'll take your advice! and maybe we'll let Luna be his guard dog....
Hey Chris, I thought you might be able to help me with this. Last night, the "bad one" Luna decided she was gonna run up to a couple Huskies and introduce herself - which the dogs had no problem with. Kai saunter's over, tail wagging and everything, and one of the Huskies instantly goes agro on him. This is the third time a dog has gone after Kai - you know all about the great dane. Are some dogs just targets for attacks? and what do i do about it?
Chris - Thanks 4 your kind thoughts - Kai is feeling a bit better, Luna is "trying" to help (NOT!) but we are very hopeful. Kai has always been a special boy, and will continue to be one. BTW - your knowledge and your facts that u share are not trivial - we quite enjoy them.
Hey Chris - Nice new layout :) want to thank you for all your advice !!! Your so helpful .I went back to using a harness yesterday , and guess what ? No leash chewing !!! Yay!
We seem to have good and bad days on our walks .Brynn is so hyper at times and will not listen to me on our walks. I have to say "Sit !" a few times and she will do it , but it takes awhile.Other days she is so in tune with me ,and wants to please me ,and is aware of everything (with the exception of a blowing leaf )
I'm finding out Brynn is a tad jealous if i pet other dogs on our walks .LOL She doesn't like to be ignored .:)
How is Charlie doing ? Still walking with you ?
