Hi!
I am new on here.. I am probably blind and this may have been posted somewhere on this site. I am in real need of a dog trainer. My dog is 1 1/2 years old and he is a boxer/lab cross. He is a great dog with some minor troubles.
* Responding to be called and coming on command
*playful nipping when he get's really hyper
*jumping on people when he get's excited
* Has snarled at me before
*Tugging on leash ( squirrels, other dogs)
* HATES being in the car.. Drewl everywhere! ha
* constantly wants to sleep on my bed .. ( I don't let him)

Maybe people have some suggestions I could work on now while I am searching for a trainer.. I am open to suggestions
Leanne :)

ps
as mentioned above I live in Mississauga Ontario if you have a suggestion of a dog trainer in my area please let me know :)

Hi!

You have a young dog and a mix of two very high energy dogs. How much exercise is he getting and what kind? How does he spend his days?

When you tell us that, we can have some suggestions for you.:)

Also, do not ever let him off leash until he has a solid recall. If you do, you're teaching him that he doesn't have to come when you call.

Well I am not working much these days.. so I have more time to spend with him.. he at least get's 1-2 walks a day.. or we go spend an hour or two at the local dog park..he is such a smart dog.. he knows when it's time to go home from the park and will try to stay away from me haha

Mostly in the day he likes to snooze or chew his nylabone on his pillow.. he has his snuggle moments and his terror moments
