Got a bit of a glint in his eye...

What a coincidence! Years ago, Mo had the same glint in his eyes. It was on that picture where he was climbing a rock he wasn't supposed to climb.

Thanks, Boomerang!

Everyone who knows both Mo and his dog swear they were made for each other.

Of course, they all work in the pharmacutical industry... soooo.....

Re: Puppy tantrums
I want to second (third? or whatnot) crate training.

I also want to mention that I've found that my dog likes the attention from the roll over and other scolding sometimes and the time-out factor of the crate helped him understand that the scolding wasn't a game.

We seem to have the temper tantrum problems mostly under control but a new thing has come up and I thought I'd see if anyone has any ideas...

Diamond used to like riding in the car. He's sit in the back seat gnawing on a little chewstick and be perfectly content.

Now for some reason, he hates it. He's in a panic. He tries over and over again to dive under my feet -- it's dangerous. I have no idea what triggered it.

I have tried waiting until he's calm, like after walking or playing, and putting him in the car for short spins around the neighborhood but he still panics.

This can't go on!

Any ideas on how to correct it?

Have you tried just sitting in the car, not going anywhere?

I went that route with both dogs at various stages.

Go out. Sit in car. Go in.

a few days of that

Go out. Sit in car. Drive around block. Go in.

etc etc




(he's still a very very young dog, he's got a lot of puppy stages to go through. you may re-visit some of them several times)

I'll give that a try!

Puppy stages are as bad as real kid stages. Luckily they don't seem to last quite as long.

He really is a clever dog. He has taught himself to bring in the paper each morning. He goes out, finds it, drags it up the steps into the house and drops it beside the dog biscuit bowl. Mr. B has taken to getting up early so the dog will bring him the paper!

Have you tried any type of restraint like this? He may not like the way the car makes him flop around when he's loose.

I've got a few of those doggie car harnesses. They work well unless you've got a dog like HoudiniBailey Confused, who wriggles out of the harness and than plops down next to it.

I've ended up using them most when we dogsit for a colleague who has a dog who gets out of his collar and runnnnnnnns when he's frightened by a noise when we're on a walk. The harness seems to keep him feeling reasonably secure (and is harder to get out of than the collar alone).
