PostSubject: Teddy IS a good boy !   Fri Jun 10, 2011 4:42 pm

Hi

As posted by Sharon, I met Teddy for the first time today.

My 19 yr old son waited by the conservatory with our Bullmastiff bitch, Skye and I followed Sharon to Teddy's kennel. Despite most of the other dogs barking, Teddy just wanted to say hello through the mesh in his cage. He was impeccably behaved throughout the approach and I didn't feel I had anything to be afraid of, even though I knew he had be muzzled when out. cool

He accepted a pat and an ear tickle from me and happily and calmly walked past the other dogs. Once we reached the car parking area, he saw Skye from a reasonable distance and, although he stopped to have a look, he didn't pull, bark or raise his hackles - he was extremely calm and stayed by my side and when asked to walk away towards the main gate, he did so with no problem whatsoever. respect

I walked ahead and Ashley followed a 'safe' distance behind with Skye. Teddy looked round and saw Skye behind him, but still remained calm and happily walked on (without any pulling at all) when asked to. As we walked, we realised the gap between Skye and Teddy was getting shorter and shorter pretty quickly, but there was no sense of tension, so we just went with the flow and let the dogs decide if they were ready to be friends. what Am I stupid ? Yes, probably (but I put that down to my age ! rofl1 ), but I can assure you Ashley and I were poised for 'action' and both knew what we had to do if there was even the slightest hint of tension hit the fan. So, with our muscles flexed, our hands wrapped tightly around leads and our Sphincters firmly clenched, Shocked affraid we braced ourselves for the aggressive display of the century .............. argh angry1

It didn't happen hell no .............. in fact, nothing much happened at all ! Shocked They said "hi", sniffed those 'oh so important" places that dogs do kiss ass na na and then calmly walked on side by side ... and that's how they stayed until they got back to the kennels half an hour later. woohoo We even swapped dogs halfway through the walk to see if Teddy showed an adverse reaction to a male (that he'd never been introduced to), but he didn't. no1 He was as equally calm and responsive with Ashley as he was with me. thumb up

My experience with Teddy today was nothing but pleasurable. He was calm, sweet-natured, walked beautifully on his lead and responded to simple commands, such as "sit" instantly. He has gained 3 more fans today ..... me, Ashley and Skye. hug love

He's one stunning dog hearts

Oh yes Teddy is a gentleman bigdog and is very well behaved :pet: . I think someone has spent alot of time training Teddy, you would be surprised what he can do. surprised The steps in Sharons field. Teddy and I were standing there waiting for Clive to return from the car, I simply patted the top step thinking He wouldn't get up there with out some encouragement but I nearly fell over when he just did what I asked with out hestitation surprised I was gobsmacked. He sat down with out asking surprised So now I am thinking what else has he been trained to do. thinking think I think that this lovely boy is more clever than we give him credit for.
Any one got any ideas and for what reason would a dog go up steps like the ones in sharons field with out hesitation.
Oh yes Teddy also loves cuddles and kisses hug If I could and my other three would be ok and had the room Teddy would be home with me now.

Aaahh little Teddy.
Forever the perfect gentlemen Wink

Love love love this little fella. He's such a sweetie.
He will sit in his kennel patiently waiting for his walk.
When you open up his kennel he still just sits there
waiting patiently for you to put his lead on. Once his lead
is on and you open up his kennel door he STILL just sits
there until you tell him its ok to walk. And once you're out
on the walk he's the most perfect little boy in the world.
He doesn't pull, pays no attention at all to other dogs, is
happy & playful without being over the top and ADORES
cuddles.
He pays no attention to all the other dogs barking as you
walk him past their kennels - he really is the perfect dog
hugs

He's such an awesome boy ! big smile

He really deserves a forever home - he's a lovely lad and doesn't deserve to be in Kennels tears

Wish I had room for another dog, as Teddy would be my choice, but Del would divorce me Wink

Good luck Teddy - you're a star love

Fi and the gang

Teddy is such a sweetie and always up for a cuddle hug
He's always pleased to see people and loves affection.
He walks perfectly on the lead and pays no attention to
the other dogs that he's out with. He's happy at the front
of the walk leading the way or he's happy at the back of
the walk, trotting along, doing his thing.
Nothing seems to bother him; We've met bicycles, horses,
& quad bikes whilst out and Teddy just doesnt care!
He's a little smasher and I really hope he finds his forever
home soon

Teddy is a super dog, easy to walk and as Tracy says nothing really fazes the boy. It's a shame people don't listen to what he reacts to, he should be curled up next to the fire with a nice garden to mooch about in and somehwere nice for him to walk and someone to love him as he would give you 10 fold back. Big hugs to you Teddy.

PostSubject: Teddy   Sun Oct 30, 2011 11:35 am

Teddy is a fantastic, loving, fun , bull mastiff. I have walked him and took him to a training session with about 5 other unfamiliar dogs, some of them quite reactive and full on. Teddys response was to try to move away, he barked back but with no real conviction and definatley no follow through. He's one of those dogs who would just be happy being around you, knowing he was going to be fed and walked and cuddled. Its so easy to fall in love with the dogs at LBDR but Teddy is truly one we would take on if one of our existing dogs didnt have some behaviour issues right now. I truly hope he finds his perfect home, he will give so much.
