I've been trying to find out more about heelers, since one person replied that they, too, can be quite troublesome. I'm also trying to find a vet here in Nashville who would be better with her than her current one. Thanks for the welcome. Love your dog!
Maybe you can contact an ACD breeder? There is also a lot of information on the internet!
I think it is really important that you can just visite your vet for some socialisation. When Mirtillo and I go to the vet, he gets some kibble.. and then we go back home. He LOVES her.. (I think he likes her more then me 😉 )
About the 'evilness': is Daisy really growling and biting? When we first went to our puppytraining, we also got the comment that Mirtillo wasn't really social to other dogs. He got them between his jaws.. and just wouldn't let go :eek: It is getting better now.. but with the 'stuffed animal look-a-likes' I really have to watch him and sometimes I have to free the other puppies..
Mirtillo also loves to 'bite' people who approach him and think he likes it that they touch his head. He doesn't growl though, but I do believe that when he finds out growling works…. I tell Mirtillo to sit and I tell the 'strangers' to only pet him between his front legs. He knows he gets a treat and everything is ok.
I don't know if it will work for Daisy, but I do know it is important she doesn't have success with her behaviour.
I hope you can find all the information about the basenji-side of Daisy on this forum!! And thank you for complimenting Mirtillo 😃
