Hi, I live in the UK, I have a playful 6 month old black/brindle and white spotty Staffordshire Bull Terrier x Boxer called Alfie that I adopted 4 days ago. He's crate trained, he doesn't jump up, He knows how to sit, and more importantly he toilets outside
He is super soft and calms down well when told. He's also really good around my two kids as he was raised with young children. So all in all I think I have a great dog to work with. I'v haven't trained a dog before but have been doing some research into keeping order in my house like setting boundaries and using calm correction techniques. Over the last few days I'v noticed that he's gravitates around me as I am the most dominant energy in the house so I think I'm doing a good job keeping him in order on a calm non aggressive level. Over the last couple of days iv taught him to wait for his food till I gave a release word and over the last few feeds he seems to be taking to it well.
Hopefully you guys can help me answer some questions if I run into any problems and hopefully I will pick up some tips too by just scanning the forum
