I posted last week that I my daughter gave me her St Bernard puppy. She's 6 months old, 100 lbs and a really great dog but STUBBORN! I have 2 other dogs, both labradoodles and live on a farm. I didn't have trouble training the doodles to come when I call them. I let them out to go to relieve themselves and call them back in without any trouble. But, the Saint thinks she doesn't need to listen and wanders off into the barnyards and basically checks everything out. I only have the dogs out when I'm outside because we live pretty close to the road and I don't want them to get hit. I've been taking her out on the leash with a choke chain and telling her to come. If she ignores me, I give a sharp pull on the choker but a young dog of this size is hard to even move! I figured when she became better on the leash and walks with me without trying to go off in her own direction, I'd let her off the leash. I don't want to chase her to get her back in. She has also broken off a beautiful jade plant I had in the house...repeatedly so I obviously had to move it where she can't access it. Just doesn't seem to get it. She is housebroken, gets along great with my "doodles" and is a pleasure to have around. I want to be able to let her out on the farm without chasing her to come back in. Are these dogs usually stubborn? She isn't going to go anywhere, when I get a dog it's for life. I just have no experience with this breed. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
