Just saying hello

Post by JOneil on Mon Aug 15 2016, 10:31

Hello all, I collect my 8 week old staffy around the beginning of September and we've decided to call him Harry. It's my first ever dog that I've had purely on my own accord (had family dogs when I was younger) with that being said I'm at the research stage. I obviously want to give my dog the best of the best from the early stages. My auntie runs a pet welfare scheme and deals.with dogs amongst animals on a daily basis trying to give them a better life than they may of previously had, I'm getting alot of valuable info from her. But if there's anything u folks can recommend (tips of the trade) it would be greatly appreciated

Hi and welcome wave

Exciting times! I bet you can't wait.

My top tip is really to be clear in your training from the start to help Harry understand what he should be doing and what's not such a great idea. It sounds like you've got great support in your aunt but if you are looking for other training ideas check out Victoria Stilwell's videos:

Have fun!

Hi & welcome from Koda & I in Oz Smile My top tips from experience are:
1) a tired dog (pup) is a good dog!
2) don't give in to the cuteness & let your pup sleep on your bed unless you are ready to share it forever with a 20KG+ dog
3) teach your pup not to pull when walking (this is a BIG one for me as I still struggle with a chronic puller)
4) be consistant. Teach from the start, train daily & most important be consistant

Not long now, can't wait to see pics !! Smile
