Hi, I'm oceanmist. I've had dogs all my life(which really isn't that long of a time :P). Both of my dogs have been Brittany Spaniels. My first dog's name was Titan. My parents got him a year before I was born and he was put down back in 2008.

My current dog's name is Woody. He's also a Brittany, but we're not sure if he is a purebred. He was a rescue dog, so we don't know much about his past. He's got quite a few issues regarding his past. We think he was abused, so he's very jumpy, but once he warms up to you, he's a sweetheart.

I'm not really a dog person, I prefer cats. Don't get me wrong, I love dogs, but I've grown a bit more afraid of them. I live in an area with lots of loose and aggressive dogs, so I'm not all that trusting of people's dogs anymore. Especially when my own dog has been known to bite.

Anyway, I decided to join a dog forum so I could learn about training and socializing my dog. We've had him for a few years, but he's only learned 'sit' and he somewhat knows 'come' and 'stay'. My dad didn't believe that he needed training classes, but now I think I'm going to make a better effort to get him to classes or to at least socialize him so he won't attack.

Here, have some pictures:

This is Woody:

This is Titan:

Welcome! A good place for you to start would be reading the sticky posts in the training and behavior sections. I think it is admirable that you are interested in putting in the effort to help your dog even though you prefer cats. Brittanys can be pretty sensitive, so your dog would probably love to learn that he doesn't have to worry about everything anymore. Good luck rehabbing him! BTW, I also think that once you learn more about dogs, they won't be so scary.

Hameau des bulls

After ten years thinking about our dog farming project, we finally decided to create it.
In 2000 we had a decisive meeting with BULLDOG CITY. And we were love-struck by the American Bulldogs.
We had our first American Bulldog and organised our daily life with various dogs we recovered during the past ten years.
I and my wife are working-class people and we have built our life helping other people. I went several times to Africa and my wife, as a State social worker has been working for nearly ten years in the French county of Haute Savoie.
Once our children born, we decided to create a common project. Since both of us are passionate about the dogs, the idea came quickly. Once the juridical frame set, the appropriate financial income created, we opened Hameau des bulls, with a very clear objective: to develop a dog farm with a social and vocational rehabilitation project, and with large-scale resources.
From its opening on, Hameau des bulls set the necessary resources to create a structure that allows select, breed and reproduce ten American bulldogs and Staffie. To a long extent,we onlykeep American Bulldogs. Regarding human resources, we usually have 1 or 2 young people older than 16 years within an ongoing social and vocational rehabilitation process through farm and dog competition. We also visit elderly people and ill people once a week, in medical centres, to provide them with warm contact and support.
Today, everything is running. Several young people use our facilities and a young woman is staying with us for the next three years.
Up to 2014, we plan to have fifteen dogs, with 2 or 3 litters a year. The outcome is reassigned to the development of this project, to the care of the animals and to the help to these young people who need money to start with their project.
Today, these young people are the future of Hameau des bulls. They deal with the dogs full-time, they learn languages within the vocational training, and are rehabilited with their own rhythm into the active life, with a customised project that we carefully follow and support.
If you want, you can participate in this project, by visiting us to see the dogs, or to get one of the dogs born in our facilities, even only to participate in any activity of the farm.
All communication means are managed by these young people (Facebook, Twitter and forum). We pay attention to the deviations and errors, so please do not hesitate to compliment or criticise us, it will be a useful advice for everyone.
Looking forward to seeing you, we wish you a successful realisation of your projects and that you like our loyal canine friends forever.

Authors of the project

LE CORRE Antony and Magali
