If you do get one, you'll have to keep in mind that those are both working dogs, they need a job otherwise they can get bored and destructive! Lots of exercise and social play is good for them! Lots of daily walks ^_^ Also, obedience training!! Positive reinforcement training is the best! You can do a private trainer or go through PetCo classes. Not all PetCo's are great but if you've got a good one around, it's very much worth it!

And good it was the overhead light lol. I was worried when I saw that post and was like....hmmm...well...I'll mention it anyways! Sorry about that!
Haha, you're good. I tried to tell that to my mom. I have to save up 1,300 for a dog + supplies. I think umma negotiate. I'll save up ~300 for supplies and they can pay for the dog lol.

My friend actually works at the nearby animal science collage. Imma see if I can train the puppy and get a summertime job working sheep. <3

I want to compete in Agility, too, but I was told that Spayed Females & Neutered Males will be disqualified.

That's a shame that they won't let fixed animals compete. I'm pretty sure gelded horses are still allowed to race. I guess it's a different type of competition and probably not comparable.

Sorta. Geldings in races doesn't have much comparison. It kinda depends -- some races have different jumps and stuff.

According to a website I found, spayed/neutered dogs are "more intelligent, easier to train, and less aggressive." So they want aggressive dogs racing through an agility course against other dogs?


The breeder I want my puppy from also won't let you register your dog with the AKC. :/

I will amen the puppies harder than gecko! Have 6 month old puppy as well. They are fun though and worth it. Do recommend the obedience classes. Hope you find a great dog for your family ;)

From what I understand, you pick up any solid accidents, put them outside in the grass, and praise the puppy while they see the waste in the grass. I guess for tinkles, you'd have to be outside a lot and praise them when they tinkle. Dogs are really, really in the "now." Praise them for exactly what's happening right at the moment. RusseltheShihtzu has a lot of dog tips.
