Brittany shyness

Recommended Posts

almostthere!

Just purchased a 4 month old female. She is either very shy of strangers or down right affraid of strangers. How do I cure this issue?

Is it too late to remove the dew claws?

In regards to the dew claws, it would be considered major surgery at this point, so it will not hurt to leave the dew claws. Just keep them trimmed short and you shouldn't have any issues with ripping or such.

With the shyness, you just have to go slowly with new people around the dog. Make everything a positive experience for the dog.

At the same time you keep it positive I would also try to not make it such a big deal to be around people. Britt's are very in tune with their owners and if you act calm and relaxed they will eventually pick up on that and begin to relax. Also, bring her with you everywhere you go as much as possible; the more varied situations your dog is in the better they can handle the situations.

You are in for a treat, Brits are wonderful dogs, personality plus, eager to please so they are easy to train, but they won't put up with harsh treatment. One thing they need is lots of exercise, they are a bundle of energy and if they can't work it off they will drive you crazy. You got yours a little late so that might be part of the shyness but if you spend a lot of time with her and she gets to trust you, she will trust the situations you put her in. As far as the dew claws I would check with the vet, I'm surprised the breeder didn't take care of that.

Thanks guys.

She is pointing wings like crazy. She is gaining more confidence during training sessions. Hopefully, she will outgrow her shyness with age.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
