Evening all, This is my first post on here and as the title says I am a first time dog owner! So, I have 2 children that begged for a dog for 2 years. I decided that I was ready for dog and thought it would complete our family. I adopted a 10 month old Lab. Now almost 11 months! So far what I know of Bruno is that he is a very loving and loyal dog with bags of personality and intelligent. Since being with me he has settled in very well, is pretty much following the rules around the house and follows commands and plays really well. I am so pleased I took the decision to rescue him. The main problem I have encountered with Bruno is being out on a lead walking. He is easier to walk now that I am using a harness but he just goes absolutely berserk when he sees another dog. Big ones, small ones! He barks like a madman. Now, I am nowhere near an expert on dog behaviour but his tail is wagging and I would like to think he is going berserk because he wants to play with the other dogs but I cant be sure. Tonight’s was the worst though, I am quite slim and it took all my strength to keep a grip on him whilst the other dog walked past with not one bark (hangs head in shame at this point)! Any words of advice/wisdom from you much more experienced doggy owners that would be fab! I’ve been lurking on this site now for 3 weeks trying to grab as much as I can to help me on my way. Thanks in advance.
