    Hi Rid, Murphy just came up on the random pictures header...
    So I looked through his album - what a sweetie!!!!
    So young but ears fully erect and 'on the job" judging by his expression.

    I'm glad you started a thread about puppy schools.
    Snoop was very happy in puppy class but as he grew so quickly they put him up to Dog obedience.
    He is (was) the smallest one there and quite intimidated by the large dogs - fully grown Rotties (60Kg) and the like. He was hurt twice during "playtime" not counting continuing harrassment by a bull terrier pup of similar size. Bull terrier was disciplined by the teacher and the owner defended her dogs behaviour saying he had found a "weak" dog and just naturally had to dominate him or whatever.
    I must remember to take a "fighting dog" if I ever go there again. Which I'm not.
    Peed off. I am looking into other puppy schools.

    They are such beautiful dogs! And they sound like great companions too.

    You are so lucky to have the love x 3.
    How do you make a sig like that?

    I have applied to working dog rescue to adopt a young boy named Digger.

    Digger's profile at PetRescue - is he your new best friend?
    He will be a great mate for snoop (and me!)
    Angelaand batty did mine, gotta contact her for a new one because as of this afternoon I now have 4. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSs.

    Long story but she is the littermate to my 2 and I have her mother as well.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Hi everyone, I am a proud owner of a ACD x Kelpie puppy. Ozzy is now 15 weeks old. I can not believe how smart he is. I was a little worries about owning such an active dog in the suburbs but since allot of people have said they had no problems. I guess with such as smart dog you get back what you put in. Ozzy is the star puppy at his puppy preschool. He graduated last week and starts basic obedience next week. I am actually finding it really fun and I would like to see how far we can go with it. the biggest challenge we are having is of course mouthing but we are working on that and it seems to be getting better. I got some great advice on this forum.

    The other issue is my daughter. She is 7 and is constantly hyping him up. How do you teach a ACD not to bark. The more I say "NO" the more he talks back!!! I am trying to teach him that outside is for play but inside is for quiet cuddles etc. She cant walk past him without stirring him up. She is also not consistent with him such as using different commands.
    I read earlier in the forum about people avoiding these beautiful dogs and I had that experience yesterday. Originally I was waking early to walk ozzy but I found that its afternoons that he is a little crazy so now I am leaving work 10min early and walking Ozzy up to the school to pick up Miss 7. I was amazed by how many people avoided me and he is only a puppy.

    Although Ozzy is a cross breed both his parents are beautiful well natured, registered pure breads and I am hoping he has the best of each of his parents. Mum is the Blue and is a more of a family pet and Dad is the Kelpie he is a working dog.
