  • Bear

    So I am officially welcoming Bear to our family. Bear is a 10 month old male. He is settling in at home and has been excellent with our family members, including my 3 young children. Both he and my current dog had a bit of a resource guarding situation for the first few days but I have been working on counter conditioning and positive reinforcement and the incidents seem to have declined. I got him Saturday and today is Tuesday and he growled at my girl this morning but then I spent the entire day doing things with them together (dog park, walks, training, trip to the beach) and they are both TIRED and doing well. I am hoping as they figure out each others boundaries they will actually become friends and not just tolerate each other. It is possible right? To be fair it has only been 4 days so I guess I should be happy we are doing as well as we are. My swiss mountain dog (she is a spayed 8yr female) usually loves other dogs but she has not lived with another dog in the home for a good 4+ yrs. Bear has met strange dogs a few times and has been great with them. My swissy is about 108lbs and pretty stocky for a female. Now with Bear in the house my perception of my swissy has changed completely. I used to think of her as a big dog but now she just looks fat and squatty! Anyway, I have always dreamed of having a dane and I hope everything works out and my fur babies can become friends!

              well our first time out in public and some guy approaches us to ask if we would like to breed him. I kindly declined and told him he is a pet and will be neutered soon. Then the guy asks if I am sure and says I'll get a free pup out of the deal. And I guess that is how byb's work!
