Thread: Quick introduction (first post)

    Default Quick introduction (first post)

    Hello!

    As of tomorrow, I am taking on my dads gorgeous Dogue de Bordeaux x English mastiff, Juno.
    She is 3-4 years old, and one lovely dog. She does need a bit of training, she has the super basics (come, sit, etc), but I'd like to take it up a step.

    I don't have a recent pic (shock horror!!), but I will tomorrow!

    Welcome to the forum

    Sean seems mastiffs are taking over at the moment

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Hi Jessa and welcome to the forum. I am looking forward to reading all about Juno. Mastiffs are such sweeties.

    I think Sean has trained his to drool on command. Not sure what else. I guess leg weaves are out of the question (where the dog weaves around and through your legs).

    Here's a fun list of things to shape (clicker training by say "yes" or clicking or just stuffing a treat in the dog's mouth when they get something right. Clue - reward so the dog has to move more into the trick to get it... )

    Haha Sean, I have a few pics, although it's hard to get a nice one from the end of the leash (only time I don't get goobered on haha).

    Here are a couple of pics for you, Sean!
    Mastiffs are just awesome dogs. Friendly, yet really believes it's her "job" to be on the look out for us. She's a champion!!
    I tried to post before, but it didn't go through .. so shall just try the one photo.

    Fingers crossed this works!!

    Thanks for the pics Jessa..

    She's a lovely looking gal.

    Very English face but she sure has a red tinge of the Dogue in that coat. I bet you have 'Nose art' on your windscreen now. Both my guys like to think they can fit on the front seat (one at a time of course) and my windscreen get slobbered on !!

    Look forward to hearing how she goes settling in with you guys. Good luck.
