Re: Barking

Thanks Kate i hadnt thought of that.

Re: Puppy Crying in Crate

Hi! Whats the aim of the training, what is the desired outcome - to leave him at home in the crate while you are out? Or just as a resting place throughout the day, so you can send him to "his place" when needed? These might be useful reading.... http://www.thelabradorsite.com/your-labrador-crates-a...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Re: 3 Year Old Puppy

Thanks for all the support, it wasnt just her behaviour but the impact that it had on the other dog. I will limit interactions, keep up the puppy work and treat calm behaviour.

Re: 3 Year Old Puppy
