part what?

Tobi, our dog, is part Boxer. We're not sure what the other parts are but lots of people offer opinions, Ridgeback, Weimaraner, Labrador.

What we are sure of is that he is part pig and part termite. His favorite thing to do when going for a walk in the woods is to chew wood; maybe that should be part beaver but he hasn't started taking down any trees yet, just chewing on the ones that are already down. He also LOVES to eat the compost from the compost pile {urgh}. Doesn't make one too happy to recieve puppy kisses now does it?

Excellent blog and thanks for the opportunity to share my thoughts here. I also love dogs and I decided to put together a website dedicated to dog training. However, I am actually trying to offer both some general tips for training your dog and some breed-specific training techniques. I believe each dog breed is slightly different and thus requires an adaptation of the standard dog training methods, to suit the breed’s behavioral patterns and genetic predispositions.

This is why I believe there is quite a bit of difference between Weimaraner training and Tatra Shepherd dog training. Or between Sabueso Espanol training and Rhodesian Ridgeback training. Each breed has its own distinct personality, and an independent breed like the husky will be different when it comes to obedience training than a bulldog or a ridgeback.

There are hundreds of dog breeds I wish to cover and I am only half way through, but I hope to turn my site in the best dog training resource on the Internet quite soon.

An excellent day to everyone reading this!
