      Jesus 40kg :O Blimey! Yeah I can imagine why he nearly pulls you over! I know what you mean, I need training too! Sometimes Bigby will go mental and I can't even see anyone! Unsure if he picks up a scent. He was a good boy yesterday, in the local green area I had him offlead (but his lead was attached) and we were playing run after me and get food game..*cont

      Yeah, if I see a dog I start clicking and treating if hes quiet but sometimes he just goes mental, so I sometimes turn around and go in the opposite direction until he calms! I find Bigby strong so Cash must be very hard :O I think Bigby is only 23kg.

      Though we go to a woods every weekend and see dogs and usually hes not too bad, I just get loads of treats into him before he reacts.

      They really are aren't they! I came home the other day to find he'd peed in his crate as he wouldn't go in the garden, but yeah he'll happily go out in the rain!! One of the annoying things about living in Peterborough, we always see dogs! Hes an angel if I walk him around the neighbourhood but if he sees dogs out on field walks he goes crazy and really hard to get his attention back! *cont*

      I hope the adaptil does something. The past few days he wouldn't wee in the garden in the morning but he did this morning :) He often walk around whimpering as well. Sorry about Cash, its frustrating isn't it :( Io used to be the frustration on walks but now shes great! Perhaps Cash just needs to mature more :) Bigby is off to a groomers next week for a bath as he is moulting for england.

      He had a good walk though round the neighbourhood, I find he doesn't react at all, which is nice and it's lovely when Io and I just go out as she ignores cyclists, joggers etc, which is great as she never used too.

      Aw I'm sorry to hear that :( perhaps the toddler just caught him by surprise? Bigby has been weird tonight, he played with Io when got in from work and then for the rest of the evening a voided her like the plague! He took ages to settle, I've ordered some adaptil for him.

      Yep! Poor guy haha! Though he loves the dogs to bits! See as I say Bigby starts all of them, but what with Io being a bitch most likely (lol) she won't back down, so she'll fight back! Then when I yell at them, they both stop, or it could be just that Io stops so Bigby does - who knows. Then Bigby is sad I yelled but the stupid dog started it lol.

      Yeah I could see about moving him away. He doesn't do it all the time, most of the time they will happily play fight, sleep together and Bigby loves slapping Io in the face!! Open planned really doesn't help! When I give them a treat, one has to go in the garden as I've no where else to put them! Ideally would like to buy a bigger house next year, the house is small as originally it was just my OH in there.

      Yep no what you mean. He'll be fine and then he'll just stare at Io if she gets near him ( though she isn't actually going near him to see him ) so I move Io away. I struggle to do time-outs as the house is small and downstairs is all open planned so I can't have a baby gate. Usually if Bigby gets like that I let him up on the sofa and he just relaxs and goes to sleep.

      I know! Naughty Mr Bigby Big Nose! He tried to make it up to Io this morning but she just ignored him. I think a lot of it is lack of space and him still settling in! Luckily I shout NO and they generally stop! He just seems to be on edge at times bless him and will just stare at Io, so I move her away.

      I haven't tbh :( But the OH is possibly away for a whole week at the beginning of November so I plan to catch up on all the games then :)

      Aw thats great :) Flipping Io and Bigby had a scrap last night and this morning ! Luckily it sounds worse than it is.. last night it was over a burger toy and this morning they were in the garden and BAM! Bigby usually starts it but Io doesn't back down, we'd managed a few weeks without one. I think its a combination of him still settling in and the house is quite small too :S

      Bigby especially loved it as he doesn't get much off lead time, he was racing all over the place :) I still want to see Sian but probably not until after Christmas now. He looked like he had fun! I need a doggy holiday next year :)

      Hello :) the dogs loved the field thanks and I'm starting bigby on a 9 week beginners course towards the end of the month.
      He's been absolutely fine with my OH, but he runs away upstairs now if I ask if he wants a wee before bed, haha strange boy!
    17. Hanwombat

      Hes so weird! As last night I walked Io and Bigby started with the OH and he was absolutely fine! Whereas other time he is running around peeing himself! Very strange dog, but as you say thats sensitive breeds for you :) Have a great holiday :D

      It's very strange, he loves him when I'm here
      No, she lived with her husband, son and sons gf, as well as the dogs. It's very strange, hoping he just needs time to settle.
