    Hello and help!....looking for answers... 5 Month Old Coonhound Puppy!

    May I cut right to the chase?

    A few weeks ago we adopted a beautiful 5 month old Bluetick Coonhound puppy. She arrived home to our household, which is primarily now "empty nest" except for husband and myself and joined our tolerant old Maine Coon cat and our surprised 7 year old Chihuahua.

    We have been to the dog store's training class one time and have five more once a week sessions. The one we went to was okay, but there were not other dogs there and the lady mainly talked and gave our dog treats for keeping her paws on the floor.

    I had to travel last week and husband was home reinforcing things the trainer told us not to do.

    I desperately need help catching up to her training before bad behaviors get set in and it's harder than I thought! Help!

    what exactly is she doing that you need help with. I wouldn't put to much stock in a pet store trainer, their idea of training is to let the dog run wild and just socialize with each other, you aren't going to learn much there
    he is your friend and protector, he will love you unconditionally, you owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion
