Re: Two Weeks! Give em a break! :0 )

Thanks sooo much for the advice. Its a brand new experience having an aussie in the house. Total opposites from the three pit bulls and the maltese i have.

Yes no fenced in area other than my really tiny yard.

The flirt pole is a good idea. I will definately do that! All he does is pace and pace and pace, and then he'll find somethin to obsess over

So about that two week shut down deal

I thought it might be a good idea to try. I recently, stupidly, took in my cousins Australian Shep. for two months when his lease is up and he moves. Well I wanted to do the two week shut down with him, but like... I don't know how to tame his energy without walking him. Hes not over the top but it ...

Re: B.A.R.F. 101

Hi, So I have read through every single page on this thread...it only took me three days haha.

The other...

thanks

ideally, I would want no protective reaction at all, but with Bullet I know there will be, so I want to know just how strong his reaction will be.

But she wont hide. okay, this is what I THINK Bullet would do: Okay Im guilty of teasing him and making play with big objects, like laundry baskets and couch cushion, ect. He play...

Do they have to be obedient for the atts?

I want to put Peaches through the test. She knows sit and isnt a total fool on the leash, but thats about as far as her obedience goes.

But she has a rock solid temperament and no fear of wierd things.

So do they require any type of obedience things like sit, stays, ect?
