  1. He is a triple registered stud and I would like to stand him. We went for walk together (both dogs doing this entire thing), rode together, sat together and did everything together (brushed, etc). Now they are back in the pen and Aussie is growling if other dog comes close to me again. I know this is an Aussie's nature, but he did not do this around alot of other dogs where he came from, even my little chihuahua who came with to meet the Aussie. He did not act this way around his old owner and her dogs either. Any tips? Neutering is a very last option for me, since I took him to stand him. Does he just need some time to adjust? How can I make it easier for him to accept other dog?
  2. I have introduced new dog (Aussie, 6yr.old stud) to my other dog and they seemed alright. This morning I woke up to dog fight with my other dog having the Aussie down by the throat. Aussie won't let other dog near me or my husband and growls, but is NOT a fighter. I have separated the dogs for now, but would like to get them to get along. My other dog is not mean spirited, plays rough but will have a fit if Aussie thinks he's going to keep him away from us. Aussie was antagonized consistently by a rat terrier the past few years with barking and never bit him, never has bit, but just chased him off--never a problem. He is growing at my other dog consistently now. What do I do?????? Help!!
  3. What do you reward with? Treats? Pets? Other? Interested in the ways you are rewarding your dogs for good behavior you want reinforced. THANKS!! :cool:
  4. Hey everyone! Howdy! What are the first things you want to train your BC or Aussie to do to get them a good foundation on starting to herd and heel. I am patiently awaiting my books, but wonder if you could give me some instruction on some basics I could work with while they crawl thru the snail mail. I am getting a six year old Aussie who is a big baby who still acts very young. He is very willing and I'd like to get him off to a good start. Help??
