    Hey Everybody!

    My name is Jess and I have an 11 week old bull mastiff X puppy called Buffy. I joined the forum because I would like to learn new ways of training my puppy and talk to other people about their dogs.

    I look forward to talking to you all! :D 20120917_174323.jpg

    Thank you! :D Yes I definitely plan on teaching her tricks.. that is how I came across this site when I was looking for some ideas. So far she knows sit, drop and stay (hasn't perfected drop and stay yet but she is close). She is also learning shake and roll over. :)

    Buffy is ADORABLE:love: She's a real cutie pie! Glad to see you've already jumped in, we're all here to help you. She's doing well for such a youngster, stay can take a bit of practice LOL if you make 30 seconds then reward her BIG TIME!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh and almost forgot, Welcome:D

    Thanks! :D Yes she is struggling with stay. She was doing really well for a while but for the last few days she seems to be back to square one with it! Guess I just have to be patient and praise her heaps :)

    She'll have those times, especially as she comes into the adolescent period. My younger boy did a perfect stay for a while, then BOOM all went west very quickly when he reach adolescence. Buffy will get stay, it is just a matter of, as you say, patience, loads of rewards and praise and if she gets a bit too restless, just leave it and try again later. She's still very much a baby and they have their moments:LOL:

    My boy now does a perfect stay, the length of the driveway which is pretty long, one way even if I walk away with my back turned. But try reversing ends and I suddenly feel a little nose in my hand, he's quickly and quietly run up behind me! Go figure! We now have to do stay from the reverse end with me facing him walking backwards (bumping into the car at times) , he'll get it both ways, in his own time, one day:LOL:

    Aww she is so cute! Good luck! I hope she has been fun to train so far, I have a four month old puppy and it is a lot of work to train her, but it is fun too! :)
