    She loves attention, and is very excitable, but such a loving dog. How anyone can turn them to be used as fighting dogs is beyond me.

    Here is Charlie just before he was 8 weeks old when we got him 1 week before Christmas

    & here he is now, he has grown loads

    He is now allowed out after having all his injections so looking forward to going for walks with him. He needs tiring out to hopefully stop him eating everything he sees in our house.

    I agree McPickie, these dogs have a bad rep but they are truly loveable & loyal dogs it's just the owners that are bad , bringing them up all wrong.

    Lovely dog Al, you don't see too many Dalmatians knocking about.
    I thought about getting a clicker. My Charlie is doing really well, sitting some of the time on command but we totally ignore him when he jumps up at us.
    He's just biting everything & anything including us so we are trying to get that out of him ref biting us.
    I am goijng to take him to a field today for the first time as up to now he has only been up & down our street as was only allowed out as of the last few days.

    That's very true Dave you don't see many Dalmatians about, should I be worried about that though.

    I do reccomend the clickers because they really do work and for a few £ on eBay it's worth a go http://bit.ly/1dMPx2d
    There's plenty of apps available for our phones to help with training.
    Give him pea sized treats everytime he completes the command and just concentrate on one command per day.

    Soon you'll have him like this little. Fella [video=youtube_share;7R_65fxHzWk]http://youtu.be/7R_65fxHzWk[/video]

    Wow that's amazing & he's only 16 weeks old......
    I've just taken him out to a bit of waste land & he loved it, the only thing he hates are cars & freaks out when one comes by. I just do lots of reasuring & take plenty of treats out with me.
    We've read a book called Puppies for dummies & it's taught us a lot.
    He's doing really well & is now 95% toilet trained. We are going to book us into a few doggy lessons.
