Re: bitting border collie

This is not a direct help to your problem but at least you can see how it is with someone else's dog :) My Fly has been afraid of my boyfriend's (Paul) dad ever since we got him. Which is almost 2 years ago now. It started with constant barking and of course all people try to come up to the dog tryi...

Re: Fearful or chasing

The lurcher loundness - barking and nipping - isn't very well taken by 'ordinary' dog owners :lol:

Re: Fearful or chasing

Just read through my initial post. I wrote it like an alien :lol: So I should just let him decide about dogs he meets then, right? The only thing that's a problem that with this one dog - called Woddy he's a bit of a bully. Woody never used to approach, just led down away from Fly as if avoiding and...

Re: Introducing Pica!

I know this dog from another forum, too :D (not that you know me, I'm mostly a lurker ) Did swoon over a picture ummmmm your mum posted a couple of months ago? She is a stunning looking dog and I wish I could take such pictures of mine! :D One of mine does enough of catching things in the air, that ...

Fearful or chasing

I just read Nettles article about dog play and I never thought of it like that. What am I aiming for then when socialising my dog? My dog Fly does like to run with some dogs, will play with some dogs. He used to live with a JRT and they played together and sometimes slept together. Now we have anoth...

Animal Cruelty Law

I have this little appeal to all of you. I would really appreciate if you guys found the time to sign a petition to implement animal cruelty laws in Slovak legislation. I am originally from Slovakia and the situation isn't ideal, sadly. Considering it's a member of the EU it's disappointing there ha...

Re: Helpless whinger and now I'm hopeless and annoyed :(

I have discussed his breeding in a different topic some time ago. The conclusion was greyhound-whippet-border collie-saluki. Not a deerhound though. I know that of course he's not trying to annoy me but I thought it has gotten out of hand. I was just afraid that by catering to his every need I would...

Helpless whinger and now I'm hopeless and annoyed :(

I have a rescue lurcher who is roughly just over a year now. My housemate has a jack russel girl who is about the same age. My dog sleeps downstairs but hers sleeps in her bedroom. Going to bed isn't a problem for him 98 percent of time, sometime we just have to remind him that we're going to bed an...

Re: What is my lurcher ???

So im going with a mix of whippet, saluki, greyhound and collie, and his colouring could dcome from any of those except the saluki, as the three others all carry the genes for 'pied' and of course all four breeds there carry the gene for a red coloured dog. (White isnt a colour... white is a LACK o...

Re: Nervous dog being introduced to and existing dog

Yes, that's what I was thinking of doing depeiding on how bad she is. I wouldn't say she's been beaten extremely, I'd say the people just didn't care to handle her correctly. That they used dominating training. She doesn't show fear in any other situation. She's very warm with people and I think she...

Re: What are Jack Russels really like?

Thanks for all the posts. I am of the same opinion as you, Nettles. Our dog's not allowed upstairs, nor in our bedroom, sleeps downstairs in his own bed (what her dog's gonna have to do as well) but if it wasn't for him, she'd have the dog in her bed. That's fair enough, if it's her decision, you kn...

What are Jack Russels really like?

Two topics in a day.....hmmm...... Well, I'm just really nervous about my housemate adopting a dog for herself as well. My and my boyfriend own a year old lurcher, rehomed 3 months ago. She has a miniature pinscher at home (We're from Slovakia) - she's quite old now and quite sick so she's decided t...

Re: Nervous dog being introduced to an existing dog

My housemate has already found a potentially adoptable jack russel through an independent rescue but the introduction didn't go well at all therefore there was no question whether to 'work on it' or not. Plus the lady where the dog was being fostered had them introduced in the house, which I think d...

Nervous dog being introduced to and existing dog

Hi I live with my boyfriend and share a house with a friend of mine as well. I adopted a lurcher (Fly, 1year old) 3 months ago and he's doing really well. The housemate is now adopting a dog too/looking for one. We have found a very sweet little Jack Russel girl who isn't even a year old yet but qui...
