So I'm a self proclaimed dog trainer.....I train bird dogs...or try to train bird dogs. I advertise in a local paper and have gotten many responses...I have worked with GSP's...I have 2....labs...english pointers.....even 2 blue heelers for agility events....the add is very brief and I guess I don't pay alot attention to the people I talk to.....I'm sure I can figure out their dogs problems without them telling me....because 2 days ago I got my newest student.....A Lhasa Apso.....I guess I never asked the owner on the phone what kind of dog they were bringing me....What can I teach this dog...he can't point...he can't retrieve....he certainly can't fit a bird into his mouth....and they want it "trained".....I'll be happy if I can teach him not to growl at me when I pass too close to him..... Really he is a good dog but...my training methods aren't going to work; I can already tell this. He is intimidated by everything which seems to make him afraid of everything. He doesn't act like a dog...at least not the dogs I usually train. He does love to run after the other dogs....I hope cleaning him up isn't part of the training. Anyone have one or know about them....other than what you can read on the internet ??
