Hi everyone! I am new to the forum and wanted to introduce myself. I have just adopted a pup Yorkshire terrier and wanted to gain more knowledge about dogs and how to train them. This community seems so friendly and genuine that I signed up. :)
Hi! I'm new too. I just adopted a 5 year old Australian shepard Border Collie mix, about 2 months ago. I've had a dog before, but i was pretty young, so i didnt quite understand as much about dogs as i do now.
Heyy! I am Jenny, I am also new to the site I have a Beagle named Rocko. We got Rocko off of ***** when he was 4 months old, he is now 9 months old.... Rocko came to us with alot of social issues, very hiper and NO manors at all.... We have now since put him through puppy classes and are teaching him day by day! Are biggest issues now is barking in his kennel..... Any advice!!! I am doing all I can to keep him as my husband on the other hand is ready to give up! I think with time and paysents he will become a wonderful dog If you might have any advice I could always use it!

I joined a month or so ago and I love it. I ask my questions and usually get some great answers. Plus I get to share my experience with others. My husband and I really enjoy this site and spend a lot of time here. I am sure you will have as much fun as I do. As far as Rocko and his kennel, try covering it with a blanket. It should stop him from barking a lot. I also keep my dogs’ kennel in our room at night, I think it helps Micky (our 9 month old Shar-pei) feel safer. My husband thinks I baby him, but he sleeps better when he is in the same room as us.
