What complete creeps.  They don't love the dog, they love the idea of having a dog.  I bet the feed him the cheapest food they can find too.

I am so very sorry.  Words are so empty when you are losing a loved one.  I hope that your next days with her are filled with lots of snuggles and sloppy kisses.

I'm so jealous that your kitchen can accomdate FOUR big lugs!  I think that if they were all in my kitchen there would be no visible floor!   

Ah, to have a herd of newfs!  lucky you!

You are describing Lucy to a T!  She was such a little pill!  Then we started putting her on a rope every single time she went out in the backyard.  It was a battle the first couple  times of "reeling" her in when we called her but after the first few days she knew as soon as we picked up the rope she would have to come.  And then eventually we didn't have to pick up the rope she just knew that there was no other option than to come.  It took about a month.   Also whenever we were in the backyard with her she would zoom around and try to play and would NOT come so it was nice with the rope because I would walk on the rope so she couldn't get away and eventually she learned that running away from me wouldn't work.

So sorry that was long.  Hope you find a solution that works for you soon!

Hi there!  I'm mom to 8 month old Lucy.  She used to be really freaked out when we were on walks and big loud trucks would rumble by. She would twist and turn to try and get far away from the sound. But then I got her a gentle leader to help with her pulling and it has helped with her fear of cars too.  She can't pull and freak out when a big truck goes by so it seems like her mind has made itself calm down when they go by.  Now even when she's not on her gentle leader the trucks don't bug her.

Jaspa is SO handsome!!  More pictures, please!!

Hi there!  I have an 8 month old newfie puppy, Lucy, that started being a total brat last week. She's entering her teenage stage and started to challenge my authority.  I knew I needed to nip in quickly and regain control so I talked to a trainer that gave me some great advice and we will be starting private classes in March.  But basically it was the same stuff as has already been said - make her work for what she wants - sit before food, sit before attention, sit before leaving her crate etc.  Some of it I was already doing but now I'm doing it even more.  I'm putting her in extended downstays and not just petting her everytime I see her.  So far it's been working really great.  As for the biting, she was never very "mouthy" but whenever she did put mouth on me, I'd yipe really loudly so she knew she was "hurting" me (even if it didn't hurt).  She would immediately take her mouth of me and look away.  So maybe you could try that?

Oh, and the exercise that has been mentioned is huge too.  When Lucy hasn't had her regular exercise she's such a pain in the tookus!  Drives me nuts. 

SOrry this is so long, I just wanted you to know you aren't alone with a teen newfie in the house! I hope you get your mellow newfie boy back soon!

Newfoundland Pictures / Poor Bear...He never stood a chance
« on: February 16, 2007, 11:37:53 pm »
I found this gigantic bear on Valentine's Day clearance yesterday for $5 so I bought it brought it home for my stuffie addict, Lucy.  Well she was, of course, delirious with happiness as soon as she locked eyes on it...unfortuna tely she went straight for the jugular and within 5 minutes, poor bear didn't have a head and I had a trail of fluff guts dowstairs, heading up the stairs, upstairs and then back down.  So I took poor bear away and performed some surgery - voila! Lucy now has 2 stuffies to torment.

Howdy!  Titan is very handsome!  I'm mom to Lucy an almost 8 month old Newfoundland!

Can't wait to see more pictures of your boy!

um, this might sounds silly but have you considered contacting Cesaem Millan to see if he can come help you?  I've seen him do such amazing things on his show, it might be worth a shot.

Lucy sends big sloppy newfie puppy kisses your way.

Welcome!  I am mom to 7 1/2 month Newfoundland pup, Lucy!

I know that when we first got Lucy and were trying to figure out the whole potty training/kennel training thing we had her kennel too big for her and she'd pee in it a lot but once we made it smaller - she had enough room to lay down and turn around that that's it - she didn't pee in there again.  So, try making it just small enough for your pup and see if that helps.

Good luck!

Oh, and can we see some pictures of your little one? please please
