About me

This gorgeous young man was found in Edgemead on Sunday 10th April 2011. After advertising extensively and searching for his owner, we have come to the conclusion that he was dumped. He has a lovely gentle nature and is approximately 1 to 2 years old. Unneutered, we are willing to assist in this regard. He is fabulous with children, just cannot be roused to anger or aggression despite the best efforts of my little male dog. He enjoys a chase with my cats but after 2 days they learnt to stand their ground as they realize he will not harm them. He is excellent with food, gently taking bits from your hand. It is seldom that you come across a lovely dog such as Jupiter. He looks like a German Shepherd/Husky cross, is full grown and house trained. In fact you hardly know he is around he is so well-behaved. If you are looking for a beautiful family dog – you couldn’t find a better specimen PLEASE CALL SHARON ON 082 4466634 OR email sharduggan@gmail.com

PET TIP
STEALING
When your dog steals something do you chase after him trying to get it back?  
Don’t play this game of chase anymore.  You are reinforcing an unwanted behaviour. The more attention you give him for stealing something, the more he’ll steal.    
As long as it’s not dangerous ignore him when he steals something, he’ll stop pretty soon if there is no reinforcement involved. Write the incident off to your mistake, as you are the one who left it lying around in the first place. Remember prevention is better than cure.
Make sure he can’t get to items, which are off-limits. Keep tables and counters completely free of food and other fun chewables; keep the laundry out of your dogs reach for several months until he no longer looks there for fun.  He is stealing this stuff to entertain himself so rather have plenty of yummy chew treats to keep him busy and make sure he is getting exercise and his mind is being stimulated with fun games. If your dog has stolen something you need to take back. Don’t just take the article from him this will only teach him that when he has his fun toy and you come towards him, his fun is going to stop and he will begin to hide with his stolen items. Instead offer him something much better a great big yummy chew toy, not only will he drop the stolen item for you to get back but he will be occupied with this new yummy treat and he will completely forget his stolen item. This will also make him happy when he sees you approaching because good things come from you.
