*shakes paw* Pleased to join, my name is Steve and I'm a dog behaviourist (easily the best job in the world!), have been for 2 years now and always keen to hear from other dog owners about the quirky (and sometimes, unwanted) habits of their dogs and I'm always happy to provide any help from my ever learning brain I am the proud dad of a beautiful Alaskan Malamute who goes by the name of Chinook (always wanted a dog that looked like a wolf, Huskies are becoming increasingly common whereas the Mal is still relatively rare around the British Isles), he is 2 and he is a wonderful dog. I got him around the same time that I started doing consultations for other people's pets, but he is by far the best example I can give of my ability. Not to mention that he has taught much more than any textbook could have done. You'll no doubt find me in the dog section of the forum, I also know a fair bit about dog health as well, so I hope I can provide help on all topics about the wonderful four legged fluffballs. So, hope to speak to as many of you as possible soon! Steve & Chinook!
