We, or rather my girlfriend, got Echo for a birthday present. She is 18 months old now and loves cheese. We have failed miserably on the training front and envious of those dogs who walk without leads... hence our interest in this site. We have decided to take the matter a little more seriously and follow some excellent guidance we have found on the internet. Echo can do some impressive tricks in the house, the usual, sit, stay, lay, come here and kiss. Outside she is bordering on an embarrassment, and we can no longer blame it on being a puppy. Echo is a long legged staff. Most staffies ive met are incredibly affectionate, they love people and children (so much so, Echo once jumped into a baby buggy to great and kiss a toddler) We love her simply because she is lovely.
