Hi All, I'm Jackie from North Carolina! On January 9th, we brought home our choc lab puppy, Dakota. He's a handful, basically learning things fairly well. I just read the post about training puppies. It had a lot of good info, my problem tho is his nipping of legs,feet, jumping to bite hands when they're hanging down. I've had quite a few bad bites on my hands from him lunging when we play retrieve. He's almost 11 weeks, and I'm hopeful that he will learn no, off, drop, etc. He sits, and we have to work on down next. I'm rambling a bit but just wanted to introduce myself. We also have an almost 14 year old Akita/Shepherd mix female. She is a bit aggressive, we kept them apart for the first few weeks..but since having our backyard fenced in, and them getting acquainted outside, she seems to be doing much better with him. We don't leave them alone together in the house, he is in the kitchen, she goes into the bathroom, until we're home again.
Nice to meet all of you..I know I'll get much help here.
