Re: Dog aggression pup

This is what I have found with the 2 older Tams I have and with little Nixi. Inherantly, they need positive based re-enforcement training... being of northern breed heritage, they need to know WHY we ask them to do something and WHATS in it for them...esp in the first 2 (or so) years.

Re: Golden Litter Discussion

I'm getting annoyed that certain people keep saying that these pups are all fine, just normal pups, and that the owners aren't experienced enough or are treating the pups in the wrong way etc! Tamaskan dogs are advertised as 'easy' dogs, suitable for everyone! All the pups I've met so far were very...

As Nixi is in rescue, per our guidelines, all dogs get altered before being adopted out, period. whether they are 8 weeks or 10 years of age. Its a different world out here in the USA.

If it were just one pup out of the litter, I'd say it was just chance, but for most of the pups to have similar temperaments (esp having grown up in some vastly different homes) I would say that, at the very least that mating should be avoided in the future. Yeah, one does have to take into account ...

Re: Dog aggression pup

When his fur is standing, what type of hair pattern is it? If it's just the shoulders, then it's confidence he can take on whatever's bothering him. If it's split mohawk style where it's just the shoulder and butt end, then that's unstable fur - he doesn't know whether he wants to take it on or run...
