Hello everyone! We have 2 dogs. Zeus, a 9 year old male Rat Terrier, and Fannie, a 2 year old female chihuahua/ dachshund mix (who is much more dachshund than chihuahua). I've had Zeus since he was about 1 1/2 years old. His obedience training has just happened naturally over time and he's pretty well behaved. Fannie has been with us for about 6 weeks now. Her previous family had to give her up because their son was allergic to dogs. Aside from being house trained, Fannie arrived with no obedience training. She is the sweetest dog, very intelligent but high energy, often stubborn and difficult to refocus. Thus far we've worked on improving her walking on a leash and are working on mastering "sit". I've been looking for training information and discovered this site which seems to have a lot of good people and great advice. I really do believe that my small dogs should not have "small dog syndrome" so I'm looking forward to learning how to work effectively with Fannie.
