    Teenage boys are the same. I know lots of people who just post without thinking. Maybe it's a human thing.

    The norwich terrier looks very similar to the aussie terrier and the silky..I'm going to go research it's lineage.

    It's more like a border terrier in shape and size. Definitely more ground clearance than an Aussie Terrier. I do know that Aussie Terriers can be trained too. Though they're also very good at training their humans.

    And it's "Norfolk Terrier" like the island Norfolk, and the Pine Tree Norfolk.

    Somewhere from that site I found some youtube video about targetting where she got the dog to put various bits of his body against her hand or various bits of her body - hence how she achieved the "look sad" pose on one of the pages.

    Sorry Hy. But the Norwich and the Norfolk Terrier are two real and different breeds.

She has trained it that if it whimpers or lifts a paw it will get exactly what it wants immediately. She has trained it to accept clothes and little shoe thingies.

    Now, my aunt really is a dumb bitch, but that dog is really trainable. Sigh.
    yeah. Thats what bugs me about little dogs. People treat them like little furry humans. THEY ARE DOGS. not little miniature mutant people who forgot to shave. Its ridiculous. Even though, I am guilty of putting bella in a babys jacket, only when its winter, and cold.

    Check out this video - which always makes me cry - of this amazing lady and her equally amazing Chinese Crested dog Diva. We used to have a crested and they are fantastic little dogs...

    Yes, Nattylou

    But the dog in the link I supplied was a Norfolk. As you said, not to be confused with similar names of dog breeds. Sometimes it's hard to know which post DGP is referring to but I'm guessing it was mine and Norfolk is the breed she should be researching if she wants to know more about "Stamp".

    Now I'm going to have to look up Norwich Breed to find out what the difference is.

    well the norwich look almost the same but they do have some black and tan dogs, so also look a lot like the wire coat version of the Aussie Terrier.

    Different ears too.

    'Twas a Norwich that won Best on Show in the mockumentary "Best in Show" - hilarious...

    in my experience a lot of people with designer dogs have lower expectations of their dogs, they don't do obedience or formal training with them because they are often not welcomed into training groups or puppy pre school, also people who are buying a dog from a pet store do so because they don't have time or inclination to research or train them.

    Training a pup can be hard work, but the rewards are overwhelming, I think generally with working dogs have much higher expectations and they are expected to achieve!

    my mum and dad had a JRT, she was a beautiful dog but she never had ground rules enforced, she never did any training (formal or otherwise), my parents had always had big dogs and trained them well to control them because of their size, but their attitude to the JRT was she is only little, no need to worry about training!
