Thank you for the information! I am going to do the training classes, as I want to adopt an older dog. I will add 'calming signals' to my list.

Do you guys support or like Petsmarts training classes? Wow, there is so much to learn! LoL, it's a bit intimidating. I am just so use to cats. Is owning a dog really that difficult? I appreciate all the help you guys have given me, and I will ask any questions about training in the right section. Thanks again for the warm greeting

some of the petsmart trainers are good... some aren't... there is a good trainer search thing... lemme find it...

Trainer Search

just take your time and read up on it for a while... a class is great, and when you get your dog, we'll all be here

^ditto ditto ditto!

Also, for training, you can always sit in on a class before you even get your dog, or at least before you start your dog in the class. You really want to get into a puppy class if you have a puppy as it will help with socialization I used a petsmart trainer who was great! Not all of them are well qualified so research is necessary if you want the right one

It just doesn't seem right to buy a dog on impulse (even though I admit my first want of a Brussels was after seeing As Good As It Gets), because a dog is not a pair of shoes. A dog or any animal is a commitment. My oldest commitment is now 16 years old. She is a little bit scruffy, but still lovable You both have beautiful dogs too I must add!

oh yes, this this this!



since you are planning on an older dog, that will help you adjust ALOT. So many of the problem dog behaviors are just puppy behavior...
