Good evening all - a question if I may!
Ruby is now 5 1/2 months old and I have taken her so far to two puppy training classes - with good success! Her recall is good - she is great off lead when I take her out too.
Her weaknesses still though are:
1. When she sees new people she just HAS to jump at them. There is no malice at all, but it's something I want to stop! She has stopped doing it at home (most of the time :? ). I have started taking her to our local town to 'desensitise her to people' - and I've been taught to 'park' her too. This is fine, but she's a big lass and I am not and she has taken me off my feet doing it!
2. She still pulls on her lead when we first head out. Fine on the way back, but because she's getting very strong it's again something I want to knock on the head!
The trainer says quite frequently 'She's a typical lab' - she's the first lab I've had!
We feed her on Purina Puppy Robust - and I have had one friend (before we came home with her) who told me not to use it as it made her Boxer puppy quite hyper!
Thoughts and ideas would be greatly appreciated (even though I know she's still only young!!)
