Australian Shepherd > What is my Aussie mixed with?
Willow

I work with a deaf dog group and we have had a few Aussie/Catahoula mixes come in to our group for adoption and a couple have looked like Blu. My Aussie, Willow is a pure bred Aussie that is deaf, very smart. Yes she has lots of energy but we have trained her well and she does agility with me as I use hand signals with her. She loves to please and is mellow because she has a job that she loves and she gets lots of walks. Patience is the key.

Also the Deaf Dog Group I work with trains the dogs before they are adopted out and if there are any issues for the families we will help them so that they keep these very special dogs.

Enjoy your dog and work with it.

Behavior & Training > Dog keeps chasing my cats. Help please!

I had that same issue and my mom sprayed me with a water bottle until I quickly learned that I did not like that and not suppose to chase the cats as they were not like me. We now get along fine, keep our distance at times and other times we sleep on the same bed together.

I also trained Willow with hand signals and treats which has worked really well with her. Being an Aussie does help as they are so smart and catch on real fast.

Separating them and then introducing them to each other again slowly may also help.

Good luck.

Behavior & Training > Socialization: Is it really too late?

It is never too late to socialize a puppy in my opinion. Min Pins are not as easy to train as some breeds so you must have a lot of patience with them. From my experience with them, as I have had some friends who have had them, is that they overly protect their owners and tend to like only their own breeds. Get a good trainer to train you how to care for them as they are really not bad dogs. I would have to come in to my friends home and stand still for at least five minutes so they could sniff me out to see if I was okay and then they would play ball with me and cuddle on the couch.

Dog Health > Rescue dog has aggression towards new people only when I'm around.

It sounds like he is a very good dog but wants to be very protective of you. You need to be the Alpha in the house and work with him to get him comfortable with other people. Hand signals are a good way to train them. Works better than yelling at them to do what you would like them to do. Patience is the key word. Keep us up to date. Good luck.

He looks like he might have some Catahoula Leopard Dog in him. Look them up on the internet. They are a great dog, mellow like Aussies.

Pet training classes are another option. They will help the owner as well as the dog as to what is expected of both of them. Humans should be the alphas in the household, not the pet. Hand signals are a great tool to use instead of yelling at a pet, they learn better. Good luck.

Dog Health > Missing Tooth in a Young Dog

You can try adding canned green beans, shredded carrots, sliced apples, yogurt(good for their probiotics),pumpkin, sweet potatoes and cottage cheese to name a few good additions to their kibble. I have used these methods over the years to get my dogs to eat. It will soften the kibble. Tuna is a another good snack to use. Hope things get better.
