Hi, I am new on here, I have a 2year old GSD, and recently a new member has joined our pack in the shape of a cane corso cross ridgeback, called (what else)Kane. .......He is 7 weeks old (we had to get him early beacause of dominence issues between the 3 males) and he already weighs in at 8 kilos!!
Im planning to train him, so that I can take him to work with me, I am a security dog handler. I have chosen the clicker method for him, because of the sheer size of him when he gets older. and at 7 weeks you can already see the dominence in him, its amazing, but also being crossed with a rigdeback, he is really responding well to the clicker, and food!!!
Normally, if it were a shepard, I would not start this process til abit older, but because of both of these breeds nature, i have decided to get on top of it while i can!!
The only trouble im having it toilet traning, i know it sounds wierd, because I can do all the rest, but ive run out of ideas!! because I am out alot of the day(not all day), so he comes with me, as does my GSD, as she has always done, they have ample space in the back of my van and get to go on loads of walks, but because he is in the van, Im not able to catch him doing it, so theres my dillema?!! Would be grateful for any suggestions!!
And can I also just say that I think any dog can be dangerous, if its in the wrong hands!! Punish the deed, not the breed!
Ill try and get a picture of them both on here soonxx
