We got a dog about 10 years back, pure bred springer. Turns out that springers can have a seratonin imbalance due to overbreeding, it turns out our dog was one one of those, 90% of the time he was just a mad springer, 10% of the time he was aggressive and attacked people, including my wife, we ended up having to get him put down at 18 months old, tried to rehome him but couldn’t and with the small baby in the house he was too unpredictable. I should point out that this was the last resort after having a dog therapist work with him, having the vet work with him, he even had a bloody Prozac prescription!

 

that put us off dogs for a while but a couple of years back the wife saw a 10 week old puppy online at the humane society, lab/collie mix, somehow we ended up taking her home and she’s been absolutely fantastic, off her head but is absolutely brilliant with the kids, even the one with autism who sometimes doesn’t realize he’s hugging her too tight or the likes, only downside is she likes to bark to tell us there are things outside in the garden like turkeys, deer, squirrels, birds and even people walking on the street which is 100 feet away. Love her to bits though.

They usually show strong characteristics of the owners.

My dog is the same.  Afternoon doze on the couch rudely interupted because someone walks up the street, past the front window, and baw-jaws decides to bark like a maniac.

 

That and barking at the birds in the tree in the back garden.  Or trying to catch flies.  

 

You get used to it I suppose... :wink:

True that.

 

If I had one it would be golden haired, a medium to dark tan colour, the limbs of an athlete and very friendly.

 

Leigh Griffiths pooch however would have 17 pups, a face that looked like it had lost a fight with a wasp, pubic hair on its head and a strong tendency to steal food.

 

How’s your dog @jonnothejambo ?

 

:lol:

As much as I like dogs, I could never have one of those types, with the sticky-up tail, whose arsehole is permanently on display. It's just not right.

This is my best mate Captain.

4yr old rescue greyhound and former professional athlete.

The charity said the breeder reckons he was fast enough but got distracted too easily. Great guy. We love him a lot.

The missus is currently on the phone agreeing collection date for our new pup. The kids are getting super excited, whilst the missus is like a expectant mother without the fatness! 

 

They all woke me up this morning that we had been given a dated from when we could collect. 

 

I can’t lie I’m looking forward to getting the mutt myself. 

 

Anyone recommend a good training class/school in and around EDinburgh, preferably the west side of town? 

 

Also anyone recommend a decent home boarder? I understand these needs to be booked months in advance. 

 

Is it best to keep new pups confined to a relatively small area ie. just a room to start off with to control their environment? We will be caging her initially for bedtime/not in house but I suspect one house trained the cage will be done away with. 

 

Does anyone know if you get a EU pet passport, if it will be able to be used post brexit?

 

Any tips welcome.

 

Also some seriously cute dogs on this thread.

Don't cage the dog especially when out as they will be anxious enough. Train them to see you leaving as a positive response rather than negative. So any time you leave the house throw it a treat. Do this gradually...for example leave for 15 mins then come back and reward the dog before and after. Then gradually make the timings longer. Make sure the dog has plenty toys, a comfortable place to sleep and plenty water. 

 

If you cage the dog your just teaching it that it will be confined when you leave and will hate it and will struggle to adapt once you remove the cage. 

 

Another massive tip I will give is feed the dog raw meaty bones from a young age. As early as 3-4 months old. Get them from the butcher and save yourself the hassle of those dental bills later in life. Don't feed the dog commercial Shitey dog meat such as pedigree or butchers. I recommend a brand like royal Canine or Wainwright's from pets at home but do you own research  They are hypoallergenic and have a far higher meat content and aren't full of the nasty shite in the cheaper brands. Her behaviour and temperament will be the reward.  And don't be frightened to feed it raw meats such as liver, heart and chicken. There stomachs can handle it and is perfectly healthy for them.

Crate training worked for us. He wasn’t left in there for long to begin with and he was never put in there as a punishment.

 

After a few months we left the door on the crate open, set up a camera we had borrowed from a mate and he spent the majority of the 3 hours he was alone inside his crate with the door open.

 

Nothing wrong with using a crate, imo. As long as it’s a positive environment for them to be in and they don’t associate the crate with punishment or negative thoughts.

If it works for you and your dog then fair enough. However, I think if they can be avoided they should be. Especially for a puppy that could as easily be trained to behave when their owners are out rather than spending all day in a cage.

I don’t think anyone is advocating leaving a dog in the crate all day!

 

We took Dog’s Trust puppy classes at the North Merchiston club on Watson Crescent.

 

And we are using Straiton Kennels at the moment. First time she’s been boarded but they seem great. They’re only £15 per day too. A lovely couple who love their dogs. You can find them on Facebook but they don’t advertise.

Don’t know who that’s intended for? 

 

Crate training worked for me. It’s his den, his personal space. He’s in it right now zonked, door wide open.

 

You don’t agree with it, fair enough. There will be things you do with your dog(s) others don’t agree with.

 

Thats life.

the Place I would recommend for Dog Training is one that is almost always recommended when you ask on Doggy Pages on Facebook, even if it is out at Mayfield, and that is Tynewater Dog Training.  Need to get in a book spaces as they are always fully booked at 8 dogs per class (plus three trainers) 

 

As for food, keep them on what they were on for a few weeks and then change to what you want. Look at all about dog food as well, because some supposedly good brands (Royal Canin etc) are not actually that good.

Thanks for the recommendations and tips.

 

To clarity the dog will not be locked in a cage all day. My wife is a stay at home mother. So crating would be for bedtime in the main or when wife nips out for appointment gym, doctors etc. We would most certainly not have got a dog if it was to locked in a cage all day or even a large chunk of the day. .

 

Most people I have spoken have recommended crating for the purpose of its own retreat/den and aiding to control enviroment will play by ear I guess.

Crating is an excellent idea. I did it with our miniature Bull Terrier and he knows when its bedtime/we're going out etc and he's happy enough. 

 

I have a mate who's dog sleeps in the bed. What. The .****.  Our dogs not even allowed in the bedroom, when did folk lose all boundaries with their pets? Dogs eat actual shite, they sniff other dogs arses and they use their mouths as their first sense. They're ****ing manky. 

 

Its a dog no a bairn.
