WOOOF!

The Doggie Ping list is for FReepers who would like to be notified of threads relating to all things canine. If you would like to join the Doggie Ping Pack (or be unleashed from it), FReemail Joe 6-Pack, who’s probably going to unleash on ME if I don’t stop using the ping list.

I agree with 98% of what the page tells kids, but I gently disagree about playing tug-o-war. If the dog has been taught “let go” or “give” and obeys the command instantly no matter who gives the order, then there should not be any issue with playing tug.

My dogs all love the game, and are as safe as a stuffed rabbit, even with special needs people.

I understand the author’s need for caution, though, since there are always exceptions to every rule.

Excellent site for young folks just learning about dogs. Thanks for the ping.

Yeah, Don....I agree about NO tug of war. There were things on that site that I disagreed with. Not much, but some.

If I wasn’t so tired....I’d go find them.

Dogs love to tug on socks, that’s how ‘holy socks’ came about!

Growls say I’m going to bite because you threaten.

Barking says “alert the pack”, aka someone knocked on the door, something has changed in our environment.

Most people confuse the two.

I’ve always thought they were so cute. My sis-in-law had a miniature. He was tenacious! Didn’t like anyone but her, though. My brother-in-law used to call him a football with teeth! :)

We got our first GSD when Mr. Brad was 1 year. They grew up together...as fine pals...so yes, babies and puppies...IF THE ADULT HAS WHAT IT TAKES to realize the dog needs training too.

That task is NOT for everyone!!

He only barks when someone slips up on him. He HAS to be around one human at all times. So, if he knows only me and my wife are home, and someone appears at the door... or if our son gently knocks on the door... lookout. He sounds much much bigger than he is.

He respects aggression it seems. If you just walk into the house, he probably won’t bark. But knock gingerly... lookout.

I have heard him bark 4 times in 5 weeks.

I can see the tenacious side sometimes. But. I specifically waited until I found a mini that was very calm. That was our over-riding factor. We found the perfect one. He is the sweetest, most gentle puppy I have ever been around. He loves jumping in peoples laps and taking a nap.

The one we had (it was my daughter's dog....)...barked constantly...at everything. Seems like a LEAF blowing on the driveway was all it took. I'm real happy that yours is quiet.

And warm? Oh yes...you can't ask for a warmer dog to have lay on you that a dachsund. (Or, maybe, my two GSD's at once?) Ha!
