    Nova is now 14 weeks. (CC) She’s been super good with training, has learned all the basics, waits for her food until she gets the go ahead and has dramatically reduced her nipping. Her recall is pretty good too considering her age, and she’s used to other dogs and people and with the...

    Hi all! I'm new here so please let me know if I am doing anything wrong. Now my 5 month old english mastiff (Loki) has passed kindergarten and is on intermediate training. He's potty trained for the most part and only bites when he's very hyper. So in short he's a super well behaved pup...

    Mouthy EM

    My Samson is 15 months old. Lately, he's become quite "mouthy". He doesn't like anyone rough housing around if my boys are wrestling, he mouths them until the wrestling stops. He doesn't like screaming or loud squeal toddler noises. So when my Autistic 4 year old son jumps around...

    Hello from Vancouver

    Hi, Just joined and thought I would say hello. I lost my Cane Corso a while ago at 11-1/2 years. He was the second Corso I have had - adore this breed! (Although I must say I do have a very soft spot for molossars in general.) I did a lot of training with my dog and titled him in various...

    Confidence Building Exercises

    Hi Everyone, I just wanted to inform you all that Chief is doing a lot better now with strangers! :) We have gone with the "Please don't pet him" approach.
