    Dog Training Forum
    I have a beautiful 6 month old ridgeback X Bull Arab. She was a rescue dog and we got her at 4 months old. All round she’s quite a well behaved dog but she constantly chews my roommates things. If she wears a pair of shoes, my dog will eat them, if she leaves her things in the lounge room, my...

Unfortunately, there is really no way to remove the rocks...there is dirt underneath our deck (endless digging will produce rocks) and rocks...
  7. Your opinions on the muzzle

    Dog Training Forum
    I just wanted to know how people feel about the muzzle. If your dog likes to nip at people, other dogs or things would you use it or use another training method?
