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

Bax has progressed from "wanting to meet new dogs and then not liking them when he gets a sniff" to "actively lowering into a crouch when he sees new dogs and 'stalking' them until they get close and he can take a running leap at them."

Shalista, how I agree! Terrier prey drive is a shock to "normal" dog owners too :lol:
Around Bax's third lap around the barn chasing a terrified chicken and ignoring my attempts to recall him I realized life somewhere had taken a turn I hadn't quite anticipated.

Re: Let's talk sighthounds

Also just saying I wouldn't trust A LOT of dogs off lead either. i consider off lead to be a privilege and not a right and not every dog gets that privilege. its not the end of the world if your dog needs to be kept on lead.

Re: Previous Dog Syndrome

i def think that with my next dog im going to be taking things slower, always playing the trading game, always telling people they're a bit shy (even if i have a big goofy dumb lab). im so cautious with bax and so hyper aware of his feelings i dont know WHAT id do with a normal, secure, mature, dog.

Re: Should I change to harness?

Bax wears a harness because he used to pull like crazy. he always just had it frotn clipped. then his pulling got better and at some point i switched to a back clip? not sure why? and he walks fine on it. hes kind all over the place but i prefer to let him wander around and sniff and if i tell him t...

Re: Let's talk sighthounds

on the topic of adding sight hound to things i really dont understand the person who first thought rat terriers would make good pets. take a terrier (prey drive and energy) and add whippet (prey drive and energy) and lets just put that on a couch and hope it stays there :roll: :roll: :roll: people a...
