Re: Fear or Agression?

What do I do now? Giving up is not an option he's too good a dog. We started this thread on February 18. Today is March 28. We've had 2 sessions with the trainer, and resolved many of Lumiere's barking issues. However, he still gets hysterical when we are out walking on the leash. The training leash...

Re: Fear or Agression?

We're working with really good trainer (Bri) at the Canine Ranch in Canton GA. She agrees that he's not aggressive. He's not particularly afraid either. He just needs to understand what's acceptable behavior, because he wants to please. We're making really good progress with "uh Unh" and treats. He'...

Fear or Agression?

Lumiere (Lumie for short) is a 6 year old sable male neutered. We are into our 2nd week with him now. Much of his past life was spent leashed up in the yard or in his crate. He came from a home with 2 other dogs, a cat or 2, a rabbit, and 3 young children. He likes the children. We are working on a ...

Lumiere with Grand Daughters

Lumiere was their dog along with 2 beagles, a rabbit, and a cat. He's much happier with grandma and grandpa. But, he was delighted to have them come for a visit.

Re: jene height weight is this normal?

We are in the states, and just adopted Lumiere over the weekend of 2/9/13, I was wondering about weight. He's 18" tall, and weighs 38 LBS. He's 6 years old. He's a neutered, male house dog and pretty active.
