    Pip chokes herself on a flat collar - a choke chain would snap that little neck right off.

    Today wasn't so great, better than before, but not as good as yesterday. She feeds of my frustration, so even though I try to ignore her when she is being a coward, she can tell that I'm p*ssed.

    She is being a right little pain in the neck today - stealing rubbish, trying to pickpocket treats. She has one of those bordem buster balls - I fill it with kibble and a few pieces of chicken jerky, she rolls the thing around, putting kibble all over the floor and only eats the chicken!

    And despite being really reliable, and having not soiled in the house pretty much since we got her, she did a big poo right in the middle of the living room this morning, I assume because she didn't want to get her feet wet. I think I may have to go back to play pen training. She hates her play pen...

    Try coating the kibble in peanut butter. It makes it hard to get out and dogs usually love the taste. Dogs shouldnt be fed nuts but peanut butter is safe for them.....wierd huh?

    Lol...it can be hard work owning a pup at times and just when you think they are coming good they'll throw a spanner in the works !! Mojo des it to me all the time !!! They like to keep things interesting !! Good luck and be patient.

    Thanks Sean - she is now curled up asleep by my feet looking like the sweetest puppy alive, while I'm fit to strangle her!

    She may look like a chihuahua, but on the inside, I think she is all JRT - I am going to have my hands full with her! Proof that you never know what you're gonna get with a cross breed!

    Try using one of these, I love them: Gentle Leader Easy Walk Harness

    It fits around the dog's middle and pulls them off balance if they try to pull. It teaches them how to walk nicely without making the walk uncomfortable for dog or owner. I highly recommend them and I use them every day for all the dogs I walk who aren't good on a lead.

    Could be a good idea, but they don't have one small enough
