    Default Young noisy fire breathing dog

    Seems like alot of people have the same issues with their dogs...NOISE!!! I bought into a litter as did some of my clients last Feb. knowing some of us would be having to address noise issues....the time has come...

    1) So...the dog is 10 months of age...noisy and crazy...
    2) Going thru the yard program at the sit to a pile stage..
    3) Must do something to fix the noise now or we may lose the dog totally...
    4) Only using bumpers for retrieving NO BIRDS yet, afraid of what may happen!!

    WHAT DO YOU DO NEXT?? Could anybody give me a step by step process to the fix?? Randy

    Noise is something I can't stand, not even a light whimper will do. Every dog is different and without seeing the dog there is no way to say anything. I f there was a step by step way to get rid of noise there would be no noise.

    Randy, serious question. If you knew you had a potential genetic issue up front, why did you allow him to get to a point where you might lose him if you don't address the issue? We all know (well most of us do) that you're equipped to deal with the issue, but the question lingering for me is.. WHY? If he's a fire breather then you had plenty of desire to work with. Why not put the reins on a little bit early and seek to prevent the issue?

    I left it go as long as i thought i could still fix it ..fine line when to fix and not fix with a baby dog...older dogs are lots easier but puppy brains work differently.... Randy

    What have you already tried? Was the noise always there? When does the noise actually start?
