From Doggy Dan on this matter:
"In my opinion and experience the mixed breed dogs are healthier than the pure bred… So for example a Pug cross is healthier than pure breed. This is because there is a bigger gene pool and less inbreeding…
When a Pug continually bred with Pugs some of the extreme physical characteristics start to cause issues…
If you Google "Pug health issues" you will get an idea of what I mean…
But any breed really can turn into a wonderful pet IF you put all 5 of my Golden Rules into place to become the Pack Leader!!
All the best in your search hope that helps"
What we strongly suggest is you take a look at theonlinedogtrainer.com and start following that training ASAP.
So much of the issue with ALL dogs is actually a Pack Leadership issue... and when you get that sorted everything else will fall into place (it really doesn't matter what the dog's background is).
So many dog training methods miss this step and that’s why people struggle, whereas inside Doggy Dan’s site you’ll see how easy it is to train your dog when you are shown how.
There are sections that cover off all the specific behavioural issues (there are over 300 videos inside the site) however the key section is actually the Pack Leader section.
This part is just so powerful as it goes to the heart of so many of the issues you may be facing.
And don't forget there's also the Forum where Doggy Dan himself and his team will answer all your questions.
We hope that helps you make a decision…what we'd suggest is to check out the $1 trial for 3 days and see if you like it.
Pretty sure you will… and then you can choose to stay on for $37/month or cancel whenever you wish… (sooo much cheaper than getting a trainer in, or paying for behavioral classes).
Why not give it a go… with a 60 day money back guarantee, and nearly 40,000 satisfied customers, there's no risk at all.
Hopefully we see you inside the site soon.
