Thats good advice, I wont push him too hard. I wish I could afford to have him trained but thats almost as much as the dog was. In a few months I'll take him to Obediance school because that's not much, and it did wonders for my Mastiff. I can walk Thor without a leash and he heel great. I can even tell him to turn left or right and he will. He's a big baby and listens to everything I say.

I haven't let them meet yet because I think Riggs would be terrified of the dinosaur. One more week and then take them to the park to meet before letting the big dog come home. Wish me luck on that.

I honestly do not think it is going to matter much. If you are nervous about them meeting then they will feel that and also be nervous. Your big dog will either tolerate him or he won't. I bet the pup wants to play with him and he will either play back or teach the pup to leave him alone. Its how he teaches the pup that you have to be worried about.


The other thing to worry about is how they play together. You will have to watch them and make sure that the larger dog does not play to hard with him. If he swats hard enough with them big paws he can cause some hip and elbow problems for your pup, so just make sure that they don't get to rough while the pup is small.

Perfection kennels have a great DVD training set up, not to costly either. Some say they are the best trainers around.
