    Defaultour new Abby

    Hi new here Abby is a 17 month old chesador (yellow lab x Chesapeake Bay).She's new to us came to us pregnant with her second litter. She is the best dog we've ever had. there are two problems with her and maybe you guys can help us. the worst one is that Abby wasn't socialized so when she sees someone new especially when were outside she barks like crazy. We've been bringing her here and there and every where to help it has. Our first trip to petsmart to have her fitted for a walking harness she barked and growled at the clerk. last week when we went to petsmart the clerk remembered her and asked wow that's not the same dog lol yes it is

    The second issue, wow the hair the person I got her from said when she got her she shed a lot so she changed her to Kirkland food so we kept her on it. I would really have to vacuum twice a day if I even miss one day of vacuuming, the floor is littered with hair. Any tricks??? Abby is an inside dog and was an inside dog with her previous owner.

    Hello and welcome. I bet Abby is very cute! Sounds like you are doing the right things by getting her out and about. I would suggest an obedience class. It will bond you more and socialize her more w/ other people and dogs in a controlled enviroment. Chessie's do have a different temperment than a lab. They are more protective and alert to strangers. Both breeds are shedders. I don't think you can buy a food to correct that problem. Maybe try to brush her every morning? I have my lab and a welsh corgi. They both shed horribly. I've just gotten used to hair everywhere. Post some pics of Abby!
