Shirley - 2012-11-24
I recently adopted a 1 1/2 year old chug from a rescue shelter. He is the most stubborn dog I know. He knows what you are talking about but will only do it if he wants to. Since he is older can someone give some advise on what to do. He was house trained when I got him. So this was a big plus. It is just like having a stubborn toddler in the house. I know I kinda have him spoiled he only sleeps with me because he likes the electric blanket. I got him his own and he won't sleep in it. He thinks every time I shower he is suppose to jump in. He follows me all around the house and will not go lay down until I sit down. When I do sit down. He makes me hold him in my lap. Any tips on how I can break some of these behaviors.

    Have no fear, you are doing very well.  It sounds like your furry friend is training you quite well and that is all that is needed for a perfect relationship.  Seriously, nature of the pooch - just enjoy it and if a particular behavior bothers you - just say 'NO' and put him in his bed or in a crate.  Sounds like he loves you and all affection on his part though.

    Thank you. I love him so much I just want him to know when I say no I mean no! You are right I feel like he is training me than me training him. :).

    They are just sooo cute and adorable and lovable and a person has a tendency to laugh or hug when we know we should say 'NO'.  Puppy is very smart and he will understand 'NO'.  Us humans - we are very trainable by the furry things we love.

This is an amazing, charismatic and energetic breed. Please know that these bundles of energy bond quickly, try extremely hard to please but do forget their manners from time to time. They need a firm, fair owner who will not stint on the love and affection that they thrive on. This breed is NOT for folks that are not active. GSP's do best when they can run off leash and sniff around in hunting mode. I can't imagine my life without my GSP who is funny, loyal, extremely smart, hard-headed athletic hunter/companion/best friend.

Actually,the picture you show of an Airedale Terrier looks awfully like my Welsh Terrier. They are mistaken for baby Airdales all the time. Do you have the correct dog picture?

    If you look up images of airdale versus welsh, the images as you said are just about identical.  I find it real hard to tell the difference.  One thing though, the Airdale grown runs around 40 - 50 pounds and the Welsh around 25.  This is the bigger dog so right picture - that was hard.

    You're right! Thanks for pointing it out. Where in the world did we get those names? We can't find any alternate names for the Bullmastiff, if you know of any, please let us know.

I have grown up with English Mastiffs my entire life and they are by far my favorite! I have a 19 month old that is lean and in good health minus the hip dysplasia that seems to be getting worse over the past two weeks. I cannot afford to have the surgery done since it seems to have started in front and back, does anyone recommend anything I can do as he is the best dog and way too cute!

    High quality foods, keep it weight down, and there are many supplements that can be added to their food.
  • JASON - 2012-05-08
    I reccommend you use glucosamine chondroitin. These can be bought at any walmart and should run 30 bucks for a3 month supply. They help rebuild cartilidge in joints and relieve pain. I had a 196 pound rottweiler who would cry due to pain sitting down. With these pills he stopped. The vet has other pills, but this is cheap and effective. Good luck and talk to vet if dog is on other meds.
  • Wendy - 2012-11-07
    Please look into water therapy! It has had fantastic results with other breeds. Dogs who were unable to walk are running again! Strengthening the muscles around the joints without weight dependancy is the key!

    I also have a mastiff with hip displasta my brother is a vet he sugest also giving them a single aleve for pain and a lot of love. Good luck.
