Doggy style sex. I suppose one could be the sweat-er and the other the sweat-ee. But then they both sweat thru their tongues, so yea, kind of extra wet either way.

What kinda pupper are you thinking about?

The kind that waits in a shelter to be a adopted and can’t wait to cuddle! I want a big dog that would like to cuddle a lot. That’s basically it.

Any suggestions on getting him to improve on this? He's smart and picks up tricks easily, but he's hard to train off problem behavior.

Have you looked into any puzzle toys for him?  Quinn did well with those while still in the bitey stage.  

Keep in mind that Finnegan is basically a teenager and that too shall pass.

Thanks for the advice, we have tug and throw toys for him, he tends to destroy anything else but maybe we can find a more durable puzzle toy. The one we got him before he outsmarted (just turned it over and ate the treats off the floor, then tore it up). It's definitely worth another try.

Thanks, we do say ouch, but he's so damn cute it's hard to stop playing with him. That's something that I'm sure will help, thanks! We owe it to him to train him right and not let him slide on bad behaviors a few seconds after he does them just because he's a looker.

Some brands of toys will note "Powerful chewers"...that may be what you need. They may cost a little more but worth it in the long run. For the Shepherd we used to have I got 'dead' tennis balls from a coworker who played. Shadow didn't need them to bounce, we just needed to be able to throw them for her to chase. She would do that till your arm fell off.

We have evidence of Quinn's puppyhood and teen years in the form of teeth marks all around the house...chair legs, window sills...thankfully he grew out of that.

"Finnegan" is a wonderful name.

My last dog was a Pit Bull. I called him Fluffy because it described his personality. Best natured dog I've ever had. But a complete wimp and as dumb as a bag of hammers. I tried to give him that dog IQ Test. He failed. 

 Major, my Jack Russell is the second smartest dog I've ever had. The smartest was a Border Collie.

PS wtf is an Aussiedoodle?

I had a Border Collie as a teenager, Finn is in that range. He's half Australian Shepherd, half poodle, and reddish brown. My partner is allergic and Doodles tend to be hypoallergenic, so we're limited in what breeds we can have.

PS: Fun fact, Australian Shepherds are an American breed. They were developed in 19th century California from a variety of herding breeds. It was the sheep they were bred to herd that were imported from Australia and New Zealand.
