thanks a lot kasmanda. i talked to my breeder too and i guess it takes years to finish a dog's championship
yes i am very familiar with the great dane breed standard and have been reading and watching videos ever since i got my pup. his sire is a german import harlequin and has very good conformation and the dam has a uk import parent. so im hoping my pup turns out ok too. his marking is not perfect( white collar and chest broken with 2 or 3 black patches) he is a little heavily marked, but the marking is even. ive seen photos of horribly marked harlequins win too as long as their conformation is good.
my pup is only 4 months old now(he will turn 4 tomorrow). he needs to be 6 months and atleast 30" high to be qualified to show. so i still got time i guess.
right now i am training him myself and he can sit,stand, lie down,sleep, stay,shake hands,fetches most of the time, he forgot roll over a bit as i dint let him after his ears were cropped. im teaching him to heel. he is friendly to strangers.
one question i have is should i start using a choke collar?i know how to use it. Now i only use treats(he really loves food). my breeder says to use a choke chain.
in your opinion, will he learn faster if i use choke collar too? i dont want him to get aggresive bcoz of it
CAN YOU GUYZ SHARE YOU EXP IN TRAINING YOUR PUPS FOR SHOW AND WHAT MISTAKES TO AVOID?
