This is more just a thread to cheer me up rather than asking for help... hopefully nobody will mind! Ted is lovely dog in no way do I regret getting him and he's definitely a character but omg such hard work at the moment. I should probably start with his good qualities haha he's wonderful in the car, wonderful with the cats, loves everyone, never growled at anyone outside of play, walks well on the lead most of the time, been house trained since he was 4 months, not yappy, never chewed anything that wasn't his and can be left in the house loose for 4 hours and nothing will be damaged etc. But he's also totally hyper around other dogs to the point of embarrassment still! He's been like this since we got him at 3 months...maybe because he was left with his siblings till then without much socialisation. Despite everything he still can't so much as see another dog without turning into a bouncing loony kangaroo (no barking or growling). I can't walk him with any of my friends dogs because he just acts as though we're not there. Won't recall, not interested in treats or toys just the other dog and that's it. He's been to puppy classes and was really well behaved and now he's in novice classes and he's fine there too. Last week I dare say he was the best behaved, no fixating on the other dogs and did everything he was asked to do. I've been using the same methods out and about (literally every walk is a training walk armed with clickers, squeezey cheese, long line etc) but feel like I'm not getting anywhere! He's 8 months so I'm hoping maybe it's just an age thing and one day all this training will suddenly kick in?! Obviously he's a terrier and I'm not expecting him to suddenly morph into mr biddable but just a little focus would be nice. He's my first true dog (I lived with my boyfriends old German shepherd till we lost him last year) so maybe I'm just expecting too much but I swear I'm surrounded by people who literally do nothing with their dogs and they're still so well behaved! Basically just wanted vent so sorry if you've just read through all that! I was hoping there might be the odd person who can relate. Also I know I'm going to get told to neuter him but I'd rather leave it till he's at least 1. I don't see his problems as being related to him being intact as he's been the same since he was very young.
