Toby – Life with a new puppy

Formally known as Red Mallow Pepper – A Hungarian Vizsla

Toby the Terrible

Posted by Admin on 5, June 2009

Time is flying by and its been ages since I did an update.  I promise I will give a full update soon.

Toby at 18 months

We have had a strange few weeks with Toby – one one hand he has been brilliant – learnt to lie on his back when I say “dead dog” and had finally learnt not to run off with every dog friend he meets.  He is coming on in leaps and bounds

the bad bit is that he bit my daughter on the arm – not a deep bite but he was defending his toy and this is unacceptable.  It left a terrible bruise (did not puncture the skin) and she was very upset (so was I)

He also has a new Mikki Walk-Rite Training Harness and it works a treat

More details to follow when I get more time.

    Hi! I’m so grateful I found this blog. We just got our vizsla and we’re struggling to train him a bit. Mostly we’re afraid of his nipping since we have three daughters. How has Toby been since the bite? He’s excessively nippy with my daughters and I’m afraid of it getting worse as he gets older. Toby is just beautiful.
