Dog Training in Tenerife
This post was written a long time ago. Tito has gone now and the kids are teenagers but the experience of hiring a dog trainer in Tenerife is still valuable. Although he did not have a nasty bone in his body, Tito was enormous. In his prime, he weighed more than I did. Having a trainer come by and spend time with us as a family was very helpful and in the end, he lived a good life, and brought us all a lot of happiness.
While we can see that Tito is growing quickly he is with us all the time so it doesn’t really register just how big he is getting. At 51/2 months he now tops Skye (our Boxer) by a good inch and a half and there is still possibly another four months growing in him. In the first picture, Tito has already been with us for a few weeks and had filled out quite a bit. At puppy appointments, even the vet laughed out loud when he managed to put on seven kilos in one month. I know people who walk their dogs at the crack of dawn or in the wee hours of the morning because their pooch has ‘issues’ and they are afraid of what will happen if their path should cross with another dog. My own sweet Skye has occasional problems with other females because I probably under-socialised or over-protected her when she was a puppy. I don’t want to make the same mistake with Tito and I don’t want him confined to sneaky walks in the dark scurrying for home if another dog is sighted on the horizon. Also with a dog of his size (even now never mind at full maturity), it is vitally important that he be rock solid with all kids and completely trustworthy in the presence of other dogs. I don’t want him hauling me down the street or taking off after a cat or across a busy road…

For a small island, Tenerife has a big problem with abandoned dogs. The shelters are full to bursting with all kinds of great dogs. Please consider adopting a dog instead of buying from a breeder.
