I'm 21 but at home with my folks, and she's outside mainly because she wouldn't give my brother's dog any rest. Also we don't like chaining her up but it's the only option right now. Also it doesn't matter what ppl think, pit/lab cross or pitador it's all the same. Chihuahua/dachshund mix is called a chiwennie.

Wow - I'm a dog trainer and I don't know what that is!? What place of orgin does this dog come from and what was the purpose of it's breeding?


Well, the first question I have is what is your dad's advice and what is his experience training dogs?

Dog training has evolved in the past 20 years and new science (or actually old science newly applied to dogs) has proven many of the old assumptions wrong.
However, no matter what method of training you are using, if you are not being consistent, it will not work. I often catch my clients being unknowingly inconsistent with their dogs. Half the job of a dog trainer is to teach the owners the best way to teach their dogs. It is very helpful to take a dog training class. If you are tight on money, you may want to see if there is 4H, girl/boy scouts or even a petco or petsmart or community center class being offered near you. One or two classes just to go over the basics and shore up your consistency with your dog may be very helpful.

I posted in another forum a wonderful resource I use to learn more about dog training - bowwowflix.com
