I receive many emails from dogs around the world seeking my advice and I have had a few epistles from cats as well, which is probably because my best friend, Ollie, is a cat.  Mostly they contact me about problems they have with their humans and of course I tell them that  training is so important, especially during the first year, as you don’t want yours to get into bad habits. Tessa would be a couch potato if it wasn’t for me.

imageLast year I had a rather alarming email from a Tibetan Mastiff called Batu who was struggling to control his temper.

Batu displaying anger issues

 

I could instantly see from a series of pictures he sent me that he indeed had a few anger issues. Anyway, I told him that his vet could probably help him with his aggression, although it might mean small operation.

Of course Batu lives in the outer Mongolian boondocks and had never seen a vet in his life.  Anyway, we Skyped for a while, which gave him chance to get things off his chest.  I suggested that he should go out and find himself a nice охин and settle down. I didn’t hear from him for a while and was a bit worried that I may have put my paw in it, but he eventually sent me a picture  of his babies .. little cuties arn’t they, although they are my size already.

So Batu had taken my advice and found a nice охин and here she is.
