We own 2 toy poodles, Faith is 2 years old, Buddy, is the new addition to our family, and he is 6months old.
We have had both since they were 8 weeks old, and Buddy, was an addition because, my wife wanted a dog for herself. Faith WAS her dog but now is mine. Cutting a long story short, Buddy has had all his shots, and is registered with the local council, so is now legaly allowed to go walkies etc.
Well..... Buddy hasnt seen a lot of the outside world, cars other dogs, prams kids on bikes etc, and we took both for a walk the other day, and Buddy went pretty well, considering..
So we took them for a walk today, and Buddy went crazy, he was pulling on the lead, barking at other dogs, just basicaly being a complete pain, not a joy to go walking with at all.
I am admitting I am NOT a dog trainer, and I would LOVE some help,to calm Buddy down and to make him more like Faith while he is on the lead.
I have looked on the internet about dog training etc, and fair enough people have to make money, but I am not in the postion to pay mega dollars, as I am on a pension.
we live in the west subs of Melbourne. if that is of any help.
