    New black dog has, by watching me, learned how to open the back door and let himself and the other dogs out. Four doggies came home after an afternoon of frolicking in the mud, lake and something that smells a lot like some really old Indian takeout. Around here today is Doggity ****list Day.

    Spent part of the day with my son and his lady and THE DOG, a three year old something or other.

    For some reason, which is unknown to them, the dog has started alerting to any cell phone ringing in the house – rings don’t have to be the same. When it rings, he flies around to find it, and then ‘jumps in place’looking intently at it, and then at them, waiting for the proper attention to be paid….perhaps just to make the furniture stop ringing? Really funny to watch.

    Self-taught thing and not real useful unless, as I pointed out to him, he becomes deeef. Then it will help.

      Yes, YES…looks like our Lucky but Luck has a slightly more pit bullish head. Chews like a Tyranosaurus wrecks, everything from wallboard to wheelchair tires. Yes he has chew toys but when you’re Lucky the entire @&$*%# world’s a chew toy.

        I’ll add that I keep Tucker crated whenever I can’t watch him in the house, so I haven’t had drywall chewed, or cabinet doors – both of which happened when Stella was a pup. It’s hard to control that first year while they are still teething. Right this minute he is in his big crate, chewing on a big plastic pop bottle. It really keeps him occupied.

          Because of his epilepsy I didn’t crate Lucky, I wanted him close, available and in a position where I could get to him and secure and comfort him when he seized. That led to a lot of chewed up stuff, a LOT of chewed up stuff, and as soon as the meds controlled his condition I put the crate out.
          At first I struggled to get him in (just twice) until it dawned on me that all I had to do was tos a piece of cheese in the crate and he’d dive in. Now he’ll even walk into the crate on his own and spend part of the night in it before he comes over and parks on the floor by my side of the bed. The crate actually calms him while we’re gone as he is alone in our closed bedroom and not interacting with the other dogs. That’s what happens when you forget the basics.

            Treats in the crate work! I just switched Tucker to his big wire crate yesterday, and treats got him in there (he hated it when he was little). Now he seems to have come to terms with it.

            ADD: I thought crates were cruel the first time I saw one (My DD crate-trained her Border Collie), but I am a convert. Being den animals, dogs learn to like them, and it makes it easier to house train too.

      Just happened to my son. We’ve had Golden Retrievers for years. Always the best, most loving and wonderful with kids. This pup, about 8 months old now, is a monster in a cute half grown body. Even professional training hasn’t mastered this dog.

      I’d rather babysit a raging rhino than take care of Oscar for an hour.

        He will probably eventually calm down. 8 months is still really young for that breed, isn’t it? Every dog is different. Tucker is a terrible biter, and he scratches. He also likes digging (which Stella did too as a puppy). At least he’s not a poop eater, which Stella was. I never was able to break her of that habit.

        If I hadn’t wanted a Brittany so much, I would never have gotten another puppy. Same thing with kittens. They are a lot of trouble.

          I think ‘adulthood’ varies from dog to dog but I generally look for about 16 months for a larger dog, but your Brittany is a hunting dog so it will demonstrate hunting related behaviors like mouthing and digging onward. My Beagle-Chihuahua mix (best guess) has stopped chewing but like to dig holes, my hound mix still likes to take a partner and go hunt up things to kill and eat. The Border Collie just decided to sit on the couch, eat cookies and bitchbst the other dogs. Lucky at just about one year has slowed down the random driveby chewings but still wants to snuggle like a 60-pound puppy.
          I figure that I can replace what the dog chews up but you can’t replace the dog..

      That looks just like our Isla! She tries to herd the cat, but the only success she has is keeping the cat on a throw rug.

          my youngest new rescue dog, 10 months old now…turned out to be an Australian Cattledog….and instinctively he tries to “herd” the older lady dachshund…who has established herself as the Kraut Alpha in charge who damn sure is not going to get “herded” by anyone or anything, thank you very much.

            Yeah, our old Border Collie’s the alpha bitch and she OWNS the bedroom. All night long she’s growling at the others trying to come back in – I have to shepherd each dog past her.

    I always laugh when someone refers to a dog’s pet human as ‘the owner’.
    Who has who trained?
    My owner, the little Dachshund known as Queen, has me well trained…
    When she runs to the door and looks at me, I run, get her leash, and take her out for a walk.
    When she poops, I pick up after her.
    When she goes to her bed and flops over on her back, I run over and give her a belly rub.
    When she stands by her bowls and looks at me, I run over to make sure they are topped off.
    When she is ready to go to bed (and she sleeps in luxury- I modified a Kong regular foam core doggie bed by placing a memory foam mat on top of it, then wrapped the whole thing in a bed sheet) I wipe it to make sure there are no sand grains on it, and then once she gets in, I cover her with her bed sheet and tuck her in (all the way up to her eyes so her ears don’t get cold, and the night lights don’t bother her.)
    I live to serve my owner, and I don’t mind!
    Anything to keep her happy, and her little tail swinging from side to side. 🙂
