    Brian June 2013 Photos by BernietheGSD | Photobucket

    My son was out with me and we were commenting on the extension in 'territory' size to be patrolled by dogs, seems to of trebled? Im so used to mine being 'at my side', that Brian's meanderings, as he catches scents, has him roaming far n wide and he's not 'with us' just yet.

    We took him to a cafe for a latte. He was a perfect gent, as people ooh'd and ahh'd.

    I'm guessing it was an 'all clear' from the vet today?
    Brian is definitely in doggy heaven

    Vet's opinion.
    Not heart wormed, as we did the test. But no heart worms either
    Micro chipped, so im swapping that over
    Yeast infection to skin. Ears/back/elbows/feet/arse Maleseb prescribed, but i have that already
    Has been constipated, no longer.
    Has anal piles, will shrink no longer constipated
    anal glands squeezed. Full due to crap diet
    Toe nails need cutting, ive done those
    Underweight, needs another 5kg, but no more. Keep him low weight, which any owner of large breed pups should do anyhow.
    Possible arthritis later in life due to poor diet for first year
    Next due back for his balls off in 6-12 months or when i feel like it if sooner
    C5 and kennel cough given, 2nd deworming (intestinal) given

    Vet says should come good. Not anorexic, but definately underweight.
    The rest is just good care of dogs, which he'll come good on

    Behaviour:
    not house trained, but yesterday, i had my first day of no accidents using 1hrly toileting in same spot, using command. He slept all night with others, off leash, in a reasonable sized room, his bed away from other 2. No problems, as all 3 were so tired. And no puddles in morning. He did pee 4 litres by sounds of things when i let him out at 5.30am having set my alarm.

    Suggestions anyone?
    Ok, we are day 4, so i get that it is early days. But how long should i leave Brian crashing into my glass doors, coz i dont think they can take it for too much longer.
    Ive put sticky tape at his eye hieght as a clue, but still doesnt stop, just crashes.
    Im sure his skull can take it, but my doors cant.

    Im 'managing the problem' currently by interupting his exits, to force the pace to slow.

    Love your pics full of happy dogs who obviously have a wonderful life. That sweet big slobber dogger must be counting his blessings to have found you. Excellent choice of name too, Brian suits him as it does my joyful Coated Rottweiler puppy Brian the Lion?

    ‘bernie’ – yes, it is early days for the new pup ! Don’t forget what ‘newfsie’ used to always say about the 3 week period !

    He is gorgeous and his name will suit him very well !

    Is it just one glass door or all of them ? Has he figured out the pet door?

    You could make a barrier to the door with furniture and pot plants to slow him down. Or you could change the colour/look of the door by taping newspaper, wrapping paper on the door from about halfway down the door to wherever you feel is necessary.

    With all my pups over the years – the rules have been - in the house was quiet time – outside – loony time. With Riley, I have taught him to go slow through any doorway/gate and now all he needs is a reminder every now and again.

    So with all pups – training and keep in mind his age by having a look at this link:

    http://www.dogforum.com.au/puppy-dis...-calendar.html

    Brian is right at the really fantastic age for pups – goofy/loony, selective hearing and a fear period.

    Keep interrupting his exits and Good Luck !

    Stickytape cardboard on the doors to just above eye height until he realises. They're dopes, they never pay attention for quite a while.

    He wont get arthritis if you start him on good supplements and omega oils, grab some Sprinter Gold Energy E oil, its perfect for his skin, joints and growth.

    Cardboard has just been applied, its late, ive just got in from work, and he's crashing around the place looking for door exits.

    Turner and Hooch was my intro to the breed. And fell in love. Apart from the slobber factor. Though he's trained us to use knee blankets for protection.
    My left leg is permanently wet. On the outside.

    He's not housetrained yet. But we are getting a LOT like 90% success.
    Today, before i left for work, i locked all dogs in garden/deck/indoors. He didnt have an accident. And left on his own for 5hrs with the other 2, off leash, together. As bernie and brian, are not interested in each other now. And pohm still cant work it out. She's still bouncing and play bowing, but when he reciprocates, she shits herself and backs off. She'll get there.

    Today, he entered the dog zone. Where no human dares to crawl. In that bloody awful ornamental grass that they have made a kennel of.
    He shook like a leaf entering, then couldnt walk backwards, because he cant. He has yet to discover his back end.
    He doesnt know sit, or didnt know sit. He's now offering that for dinner only.

    He doesnt know what a toy is and is not interested in the copious amounts of them my dogs wont play with.
    He wont play tug of war. That seems odd to me. And i hope a settling in thing.
    Maybe one day put pohm and him at the front of some 'chariot' of mine?

    He's not keen really on Sherlock. Because Sherlock is a little sod, for everyone cept nan/me. Who cant put up with it.
    Sherlock can be seen, giving his greasy looks, mounting him, full on face to face in alignment, in his space, wants to play but asking really badly. But he's out of control and it could easily get Sherlock trying brian on for size.
    Well, he got punched. Brian, punches dogs? Ive never seen this before. He lifted his front leg up, and side swiped him off his feet with a punch across the chops.
    Sherlock hid under the table for 10 seconds. Then went back for more, this time, tail wagging. He got a warning snarl. And backed off then.
    But it's coming. And something i will watch for.
    Allready, these 2 have tried to sneak off and do their own thing. So they are in cohoots too. Friends eventually im sure, they are the same age.

    He loves Harlequin, and just wanted to wash her, and keep her warm under his chops. She was a bit fearful. But rolls on her back nicely to show a white belly.

    We have a definate behaviour pattern that im watching.
    He does not recognise me, or my daughter yet, if we change our hair from up to down. He barks his intruder alarm single bark. The Im here.
    Then he'll give full eye contact, and growl at me. I talk to him and he realises its me and we get silly brian again. Vision?
    The evenings this gets worse. Fading light, he's tired?

    He's a bit lame today after his walk. Nowt major, could of tripped in a ditch? Not painful to touch him. Has full mobility of joints. No swelling.

    I have to visit the owner, because i forgot to get his signature on the transfer of microchip. I'll be going with husband. And keeping it really succinct.
    he's snoring away now. so i shall too.
