    I come from family where dogs have a played a huge role in our life by bringing happiness and laughter to our household. My father is 77 years old and has Parkinson's and my mother is 73. In December my mother adopted "Gracie" from Georgia to bring joy back into their home. As far as we know she's part Brittney and is under 3 years of age. Gracie is one of the most tender and loving dogs we have ever owned but loves to chase and escapes from the fence. My mother has hired a couple of trainers but is unable to get Gracie to "come" when she's called etc. FYI our past dogs have been Golden Retrievers and we had them from puppies so this a new experience for my family. My mother is heart broken with the idea of putting Gracie up for adoption but unless we get some real help this will be inevitable. I think giving Gracie away will cause more sadness in their house and I know the joy she brings them so I'm hoping your show show could be our answer. My parents live in Westport CT which is less than an hour from NYC.

    I can submit photos etc.

    @Susan, You are right near New England Brittany Rescue. I recommend contacting them to see if they know anybody near you with Brittany experience who can help you. Tell Christine that Jessica sent you.

    My parents also have a Brittany and it was a struggle at first. Brittany's are bird dogs. Bird dogs are very different from retrievers as my parents learned, they had always had labs prior to bringing home Ben. There is probably also a Yahoo group for Brittany owners, I would look that up too. I'll bet you can find other Brittany owners in your area to hook up with. And don't forget that Gracie is young. Bird dogs are high energy until they aren't so just keep at it. Lots of exercise and mental stimulation, clicker training tricks and fun things will help too.

    Good luck,
    Jess

    My son is in the army and has a boxer puppy, he is rambunctious and I have two papillions who he plays way to hard with and the boxer does not know his own strength. My son says My dogs provoke the boxer one of them may because he is the alpha dog in the house. How do I create peace with the beasts so to speak.

    Hello
    I am in desperate need of help. My wife and i have 2 American pit bull terriers that are both over 80lbs, and a tea cup chihuahua. Our male pit bull is extremely over whelmed with energy and continuously licks and chews anything that fits in his mouth and jumps on everyone when he sees them. He gets himself so worked up that he will hurry up and eat, then vomit up his food and it will be dry still. The dogs have literally eaten me out of house and home, and what i mean by this is they chew on the walls, steps, doors, beds, furniture, blankets, and pretty much anything else. It doesn't matter how many chew toys they have. I remolded my house from top to bottom, then we decided to get dogs and i have had to tear the walls down and rip up the floors so now our house is just drywall on plywood floors. We have tried to take them to obedience classes and he is to hyper that all he does is pull real hard and barks and cries anytime he is around new people or dogs.

    I have a five year old White German Shepherd named Beau who
    is leash reactive with other dogs and is also fear reactive.

    He won't let anyone he doesn't know inside my house. I also have a
    13 year old rescued White Shepherd dog, Sadie, who is very stable.
    Great with everyone but no fond of dogs.

    My problem is, I need to have surgery on my foot and my knee due
    to osteoarthritis, and I only have two people who can help me out
    with Beau when I get my surgery.

    I need to teach him that strangers coming in the home are a good thing
    rather than a bad thing. I will need to have physical therapists and other
    people to help me if I have surgery and right now — no one can come in
    my house. Beau goes insane — barking and protecting — it's his breed.

    I walk him three times a day, even though I am in pain. I have to use a head
    harness and a front buckle harness on him. He goes that insane. He actually
    likes other dogs but he is so fear reactive, that he goes nuts when he sees them
    on leash.

    Victoria — I really need you. I have to have this surgery and I have no idea how I
    can have it with the way Beau is. He is a love, but very fear reactive and needs
    to gain confidence. I have worked with him with positive reward methods but he
    is so hyper and so hyper vilagent — I honestly need a professional such as yourself.

    I am in Delaware. A short trip from New York. Please Victoria —help me me a better
    trainer to my dog and also so I can help the rescue dogs I work with.

    thank you!

    Sue, Sadie & Beau. White German Shepherd Dog Rescues.
