Hi all, I brought home an Irish Setter that I estimate to be about 2 years old (the vet will confirm for me next week) earlier this week. I grew up with a Toy Poodle, but he was my Mother's dog, this is the first dog I can call my own. He is a smart boy and has learned the rules of the house pretty quickly, although I am having a problem with night barking, which I posted under the new dog owner's link. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I have been volunteering with an assistance dog organization for about a year now and have learned a great deal about dog training in the process. I have been using that knowledge to help train my new dog. I also purchased a couple of clickers and a book by Peggy Tillman on clicker training that has become my new go-to book. I hope to be able to train Sebastian to be a therapy dog, as he is smart and I think he would enjoy having a "job" to do. Does anyone else out there have therapy dogs? Any suggestions for a first timer?
