Default Dog Training

I know it's a different breed - a white west highland terrier and he's 16
weeks. Got him when he was 6 weeks for my 7 year old daughter. Advised don't
let out until had jags, took literally and didn't let him out! He's now
frightened of people walking towards him and cars. He constantly tugs on the
lead when out and he's more interested in eating things outside than doing
his toilet. Infact he prefers doing his toilet round the back or in the
house.The later to a slowly lesser degree, but I'm spending more hours
walking the streets than I am at work. Wife is at the despairing stage,
daughter can't play with him because we're still trying to get him to stop
the biting.

Is there somebody out there that can help me and us correct the numerous
mistakes mainly that I have made over the past 10 weeks?

Ask the folks at your vet's clinic about who offers the best obedience
training near you. You'll do best with guidance from experienced
trainers at this point. You need someone who can see your rascally
terrier and walk you through the process of both of you learning to walk
with a loose lead. They will also be able to help you with All of the
other issues you mentioned. This will save you Months of trial and
error.... save your sanity, possibly keep your wife from leaving you,
and help your youngster teach the pup not to use her for a chew toy.
grin I'm a terrier owner, as well... and have "been there and done
that" over the last 20 years. Have had so much fun with training
classes that I'm now an instructor....

My Cocker Spaniel is still as crazy as ever and he is almost 4 years
old. Can he still be trained and calmed down at these classes or is
he a lost cause?

Louisi - Your Cocker is still a young dog! Of course he can be
trained! He will not become a couch potato, but he will have better
self-control, and be more responsive to you.
