Ohh drr I forgot to put that, Im getting a rescue dog probably a white shepherd husky cross(hopefully Ill have to wait till one comes around but Ive seen them quite often, or a shepherd, or a husky malamute which would be my favourite
) so toys they can shred into would probably be to there liking, Im guessing squeakers, yeah thats a good idea to let them choose Nanay, though Id like to have a base bucket of toys they can choose from before I get it(because Im excited lol) My border collie never played with toys but I'd like to get a dog thats fairly toy motivated, Im going to be opening up an obedience class which is why Id like it to be mixed with german shepherd(Give him somemore brains and take out some of the husky ADD, also because it needs to be good with my other animals so itll be one who has lived with cats)
P.s I love standard poodles there so silly at my boarding kennel there always throwing there feet around and jumping
Are dentastix healthy Jenny? I always thought because they were made from pedigree they wouldnt be as healthy, Im putting him onto Taste of the Wild its sorta like Blue Wilderness, I dont like the foods at the vet I work with really, there too high in filler and its all by products even though they say the food is tested against everything I just dont like the formula.
I really advocate all postive reinforcement and negative punishment(for those who dont know negative punishment is simply removing something the dog likes until he presents the wanted behaviour ex. dog jumps up you fold your arms and turn away until he has all paws on the ground then you give the conditioned and unconditioned reinforcement) but I dont like prongs(only for strong stupid dogs) or choker, I believe if we're getting them to obey us why should we use force, when they're not getting anything out of the deal just pain. I love victoria stillwell shes my favourite trainer, and I think Ceasar is getting better at using positive reinforcement then dominance training
