Hello. Ooh I love a good dog forum.
My name is Jo and my boyfriend has just moved in with me with his dog. She is a white Japanese Akita and is beautiful. He hasn't had her from birth, he bought her from some woman who advertised her as she was being attacked by the owners other jealous staffie.
I love her. Her name is Keyla. She is 5. She is good with people, friendly and loving and very exciteable but she does have her faults. She is very scared of loud noises and groups of people who talk loudly. A particular fear is shop shutters or lorrys clanging shut. She is a dreadful chewer (she's already had one of my shoes, an internet lead and the legs off of a teddy bear). Although housetrained, at night if she gets too distracted on her walk and doesn't go to the toilet she sometimes soils the carpet. She will pull terribly if she sees a cat. She has a soft toy fetish and will be anyones friend for a bit of chicken. She has not been trained in recall and the one time she was let off the lead she ran with joyous abandon to the next town.
I'm going to do a couple of threads about some of these problems but thought I'd pop by and say hello first.
