a lot of questions
so, I have many questions to ask and I didn't want to start a bunch of new threads so I'm just making one big one......
Jaxx is now ten months old and he pulls with the choke chain really bad so I went to Petsmart to get a prong, I really didn't want to get one and I have never used one before.... I also am afraid he could hurt himself on it.. so I asked a trainer that works at pet smart for some ideas what to use instead of it, and he showed us an easy walk harness and another thing that I cant remember the name of (lol) I ended up paying 20 dollars for an easy walk. I haven't used it yet, and we can get a refund on it if we take it back... but from your experience does it work?
another question I have is do you think 80$ for a one on one, one hour, training session is a good price? I'm willing to pay that price, but I'm not sure if eighty dollars for an hour is reasonable..... ( its only you and your dog and the trainer, its not a group class) you can talk about anything with the trainer, and they will give you advice and show you how. if I went I would work on walking of course, and maybe heeling and stay ( he knows heeling and stay just not very well)
im going to ahead and repost a question that I have in one of my older threads, just so people can answer here instead of there....
im getting jaxx fixed soon and im nervous.
how much exercise should he get after they finish and when do stitches usually heal... ive been hearing only short walks and mind puzzle for exercise, and that they heal in one to two weeks.
and if he tries to lick the stitches but doesn't like the cone of doom what else can I do, is there something else that could make him stop licking that isn't the cone of doom?
and what are some good toys that give out treats for him, and what are some good mind games to play with him? I play hide and seek with him already.
what are some cool tricks that I could teach him/ he already knows a lot and im running out of ideas....
thanks, and sorry that this is so long!!!

"i approached a kid and asked, what is love?
he replied, love is when a puppy licks your face.
i laughed but then he said, even after you left him alone all day..."
