sounds logical, temper. i'm not sure how long it'll be before we're at that point, but hopefully soon. i think he's getting the idea of listening.

oh by the way, a further update on the harness. to see what would happen, i put the collar on him to take him out, figuring i'd give that a go. well, hurley was having none of THAT. he started thrashing his head and pulling like CRAZY. took it off, put the harness back on, and out we went.

now keep in mind i'm not saying this is universal by ANY stretch or that the tried and true collar training is bad, just that in this instance my guy really dislikes something around his neck.

and just to return to the cute, here he is, snoozing, right now on my thigh after i got home from the gym



Great info in this thread for potential pup owners. 

However, I am primarily interested in TEH CUTE, and there really need to be a lot more pics in this thread for my liking!  He's ADORABLE!!   Cheesy

It's just cause he isn't used to it.  He isn't a wild horse or something haha.

So cute though.  That dog owns.

The dog likes the harness because it gives him control

The collar gives him less control & more control to you


I prefer choke chains/loops or pinches.

well he doesn't fight me at all in the harness. we just got back inside from a walk and he never really strayed if i tugged. if he starts to get rowdy, i suppose it'll be a case of tough love. i feel a little lucky that we haven't needed it yet.

haha, he's losing weight, too. waist is looking better and his skin's all cleared up. vet said to avoid beef, wheat, and possibly lamb. so he's on a mix of canned and kibble (mostly canned), specifically nature's recipe healthy skin venison and rice. when he's hungry, he destroys the stuff. and oddly he doesn't eat a lot. takes him a few hours before he decides to finish a single meal.

i initially pegged him at 60 pounds full-size, but i'm thinking if i got him dieted down to 46-ish now (according to the vet), he'll probably be about 55 as an adult, which is just about spot-on. less treats, better food, and exercise has him in better shape. he can jump around now and climb stairs without issue. imagine that, eating better and physical activity got him in good shape!

I love him like he's my own!   Kiss

Keep the cuteness coming!  We don't have a DOM anymore, so maybe Hurley should just be GB's mascot.   Cool
