Default who has had no problems?

i don't mean what most people consider problems with
a young dog. let's say your dog is 2 years or older. what
problems have you encountered?

Your title asks who has had no problems and then you ask what problems have you had.

Anyways.

I've had my dog bite the gardening bc he snuck up on me and my dog training. He had a leaf blower in his hand and my dog must of thought he was a threat and bit him on the calf.

Nothing came out of it, his mother called to make sure he was up on all his shots and was clear of rabies and that was it.

The only other scare I've had is a torn ACL. He was walking and running funny for a couple days so I limited his activities and he was still acting funny. Took him to get X-rays and what not, but came back clear and he started acting normal a few days later.

So for the most past, things have been pretty good.

the title reads "who has had no promblems". then it
clearly states what i mean and it states an age limit.

Relatively speaking, I've had no problems. I know I've mentioned different issues here and there, but overall I'm not calling them "problems" because nothing is ever perfect anyway, so why should my pup be held to that kind of unattainable standard?

apparently you haven't had any problems with a dog that's
2 years old or older. i like the way think about what a problem
is.

Bianca was very leash reactive with other dogs when I got her, she would bark/growl/lunge if she saw another dog on leash even in the distance. I worked for a long time on this with her and was eventually able to greatly reduce/control her reactivity. She was 4 years old when I got her though.

I had no problems with Jackson, who came to me with his littermate as foster puppies too young to go up for adoption. Their BYB surrendered them and their Momma because her landlord had given a set date to get down to one dog. She weaned the litter at 4 weeks and these two were still left on the set date, so to the shelter they went.

He trained easily, was great with kids, cats and other dogs. He didn't give me a moment of worry for any reason.

He died way to early though.

I had no problems with Ossie. He was a rescue (or surrender, I don't know which) and was very well trained when I got him including potty trained and house trained. He was very easy to teach new commands.

He was estimated to be two or three when I got him. Next to Lisl, he was my best GSD, and my best male.

I'm certain I had no problems ever since I was two...pretty much a model citizen and the perfect child....regardless of what my folks might say.
