I've been reading the threads for months, but haven't posted much at all. I wanted to introduce myself and my three dogs.
I'm 16 in mid-October. I live with my mum and older sister, and have grown up around dogs. I got my first dog, Tippi, when I was 8. She was intended to be a family dog, but at about a year old, she suddenly said "yeah, you're mine now".
We actually have 6 dogs, but three will be coming with me when I move out.
My mum has a Doberman and my sister has a Jack Russell Terrier.
I have a 2 year old Doberman called Kay. She's my current work-in-progress. I do scentwork/tracking from home, a lot of obedience, and we'll be starting agility in October.
I have two Jack Russell Terriers, Tippi and Star. Tippi's nearly 8, and Star's 4. Star's just scraping through life with the basic commands - Sit, Down, Come, Leave, etc. I did a lot with Tippi. She went from Silver Level Obedience Trained dog to a self-retired senior who has selective hearing. That's okay.
The newest pup, Tizer, was brought home today. He's a black and tan Miniature Pinscher, and is 8 weeks old. He's already made himself at home. He's such a confident little guy.
