    Hi.
    For those of you who own Dogs out there. This is the thread for you. Sorta like my other thread horse club. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only dog owner out there.

    We got a new puppy 6 days ago. His name is Wilbur. He is a blue Great Dane and super cute. Any training tips? And how do I help my other dog adjust to him? I will explain more once this thread is up and running.

    A few Questions:
    What is your dogs name?
    What breed?
    Do you have dogs?
    Do you breed?
    Do you show?

    Please join. If you Don’t have a dog that’s ok join anyway and find out some stuff.

    We just a puppy four days ago. She is 6 weeks old and her name is daisy. We are assuming by the rest of the litter she is a pitbull Rotweiller mix but she looks like a hound.

  6. I have a 9 year old Labradoodle, Archie. He loves everyone, and was great with my last chickens. He was excited to meet the new ones.

    My Gracie is about to be 10 yr old and is a purebred Sheltie. She is hearing impaired (one ear up, one down) and a bit emotionally ... um ... "special" because she was the only pup in her litter. So she wasn't properly socialized from birth. We don't show or breed, of course, but we love her. She protects the chickens from coyotes and other predators, and protects me from potential dangers such as ladders, hammers, aluminum foil, mirrors, visitors, squirrels, dragonflies and falling leaves and walnuts. Here she is reminding me it's time for her bedtime cookies. Who could resist that face , I ask you!

    Hi everyone :)

    Frank (17 months) and Abby (10 months) are brother and sister, different litters. Both are English Bull Terrier/American Pit Bull mixes and share the same parents. Midge is a Silkie Terrier and almost 13 years old.

    We don't do shows or any breeding.

    Training tips...I would say remember not to call your dog to you and then punish him, start leash training early and when you set limits don't backtrack. If you have no experience training a dog, get some professional help and experience BEFORE you even consider a shock collar. Mostly, have fun with your puppy and give him lots of love. Rewards for good behavior outside of training are important...a good boy and some love when he does a good thing at some random time are more valuable than training sessions sometimes.
