I am so glad I posted my question on this board. Your answers are goldmines of knowledge!
I am going to carefully reread every one of them but I already know what to do.
You are right. The description of a PPD
dog that the other person posted sounded idyllic. I am a newbie owner who instead of dreaming of a perfect dog, should concentrate on obedience training, especially that I am not really sure I want my dog to bite anybody.
I wish more people would that honest instead of promising stars and the moon to the newbies. If you were a trainer in NJ I would be the first one to sign up for your services.
Thank you again and I wish you a happy and healthy New Year!
