    Brody sounds so lovely, cannot wait to see pics/vids of him. LOL that aroo-oooo- sound is just what my boy Ra Kismet makes when he wants something, must be a BC thing??:D

    Be careful with Frisbees. I'm not against them, but my boy, who loves playing soccer and anything energetic, is now waiting to see a Neurological Specialist, because there is something wrong with his hind legs, which may be due to his liking and ability for being able to 'jump tall buildings with a single leap' - don't want to frighten you, just warning to be very careful with jumping.

    With his shyness, that's possible the cause of him appearing to be dominant with other dogs, and will need some work to help him to over come his possible fear/dominance. Don't let this develop into a major problem, best nipped in the bud now, with P + training. Check out the other forums, I am sure there is a thread there, about just this subject. If not, start a thread and you'll get loads of advice and help.

    Thanks for the advice! Brody doesn't like frisbees too much, that's why I temporarily gave up.
    And I also just started a thread for Brody's problem, I'm really worried about it.

    Will go over and check your thread. If Brody's not keen on frisbees, I wouldn't bother with them.

    I can't wait for photos! It sounds like he'll be learning a lot!
