I live in Arkansas. In Fort Smith. Before these past couple of days Maggie was only in her crate at night during cold or rainy weather. I am a SAHM and we have a big fenced back yard. I do see that she needs more attention and that I need to go out and play with her myself and do some training as we...

I worked a few minutes with her this morning in the house on the come command and sit. She already knows the come command and I was surprised at how quickly she 'got' the sit command. My plan it to do a few short sessions every day with her. The hardest part of it is keeping my ds age 5 calm because...

Thanks so much everyone for all the replies and excellent advice. I am so glad to know that shocker collars are not recommended by any of you and that they can even be harmful to the pyche of a Brittany. You have also confirmed my feeling that my dh's yelling at her and berating her for digging (pos...

Well, I did give him the highlights of all your responses......which carries the theme of 'she is a social dog and wants to be near humans!' He will be home tomorrow and I will be gone (a rare circumstance), so I told him to bring her in and crate her while he works at his desk and she will be happy...

One more thing....she is excellent in a crate. That is the only way my dh will allow her in the house. Letting her loose in the house part of the time is out of the question. I just wanted to let you guys know that she she does have some great points. If I open the door to house she goes straight fo...

Thanks for all the replies. First of all, what is a kong? Myra, I planned to let her have litter of pups...I suppose that is a big no-no on a Brittany Rescue site....and the man I got her from said it is best to wait til she is 2 to have a litter. As far as the boredom....I have to say I am beginnin...

My Out of Control Brittany

This may not be the place for this, but I thought I would try. I have a 1 year old Brittany Spaniel (1- year on January , that we have had since she was 8 weeks old.) She is an outside dog with at least a 1/2 acre back yard. I am at my wits end. I have pretty much decided that we will have to build ...
