Re: Pit bulls and puppy mills

Slightly off topic but in NJ we have different levels. A dog can be labeled as potentially dangerous, dangeous, potentially vicious, and vicious. Generally a dog is and it's owners are 'sited' and can contest it in court. Most do because the dog has the potential to be destroyed and insurance costs.

Re: Stubborn jumper!

Look up a method called NILF. It's a training method that uses the dogs desire to belong to a pack to. Curb unwanted behavior. It's basically ignoring them when they are bad and rewarding good behavior with attention and inclusion. My dog is scary smart so we really had to this to keep her manageable.

Welcome. I gotta agree that's not a Tamaskan, but I do want to know-what led you to think it was? Beautiful dog. Almost looks like black shepherd with maybe B.C. or something else mixed in. Perhaps a vet could look at bone structure and what not up close to give you a more definitive idea. Good luck!
