    My answer is getting longer and longer...:rolleyes:..but I have something to add that only just came to my mind.

    If you can and it is in your nature....try to laugh some of your pups behaviour away. Pups want our attention, so rather than getting worked up about their antics..if you pull away, laugh 'don't be silly' and pull away, even turn you back and walk away...you are effectively giving a sign that your want to ignore him. Just like with other training...if you don't react, his behaviour don't yield the response they want from you...he will try something else. Instead if you react to the good behaviour, penny will eventually drop and he start to use that more often to get what he wants.
    Save strong reactions....those are only needed in rare occasions and when dog is not familiar with those from you...it will be almost like 'emergency break'. But you won't get to use that many times in their lives for it to be effective.

    Hang in there,terriers can try the patience of a saint at times,even at a young age.
    I'm lucky I've got over a 100 years worth of knowledge under my belt. Handed down from my grandad, my dad and what ive learnt. You may find that things change once you can get him out. So dont beat yourself up,they can be little sods at times.

    Hello all. I really need a bit of reassurance please...

    This evening taken Vardy in garden for wee/poo. My mum shut the patio door, Vardy heard it and went running in but smacked his head full on and it made him yelp.

    He seems fine and normal. In his crate now for sleep but its made me crazy anxious that its done dangerous damage.

    Hopefully seeing vet anyway tomorrow for something else and will mention it but wont stop me worrying now.

    Update, he was sick this morning.

    I hope he's OK, EmmaLouise - how does he seem now? Will you be seeing the vet today? My guess is he'll be absolutely fine, but of course you want to be sure.

    Thanks for your reply.

    He seems ok and normal. Hes asleep on the sofa next to me now which he normally does at this time.

    Tried ringing the vets as was concerned about his ears but she said no appointments today so I mentioned about the head thing which is more important and she said got to wait till she can speak to a vet and will ring me back.

    I wouldnt of been as worried if he wasnt sick. apart from that hes seemed normal.

    I bet this happens a lot with patio doors , In future just stand infront of the patio doors.

    It just happened so suddenly though. I was outside near Vardy. I didnt realise my mum had shut the door and before I realised vardy was running very fast towards it. Im angry at myself. Anyway managed to get an appointment at the vets.

    I hope all is well.

    One of my dogs charged full tilt into patio doors while I was at a friend's house. He was concussed and I thought he was dead. Tough little so-and-so had a vet check and was fine. I did get him checked over by an animal chiropractor as well (your vet may know one/some).
    For your own patio doors, get some stickers or opaque film put on them at dog-sight level, or it is very likely to happen again.

    You can buy rolls of opaque film that clings, rather than sticks to glass, so it is really easy to take off if you want to (and put back on to re-use).

    Update, went ok at the vets. She wasn't concerned and just to keep an eye on him.

    Thanks for replies. Feel better, more so than little Vardy

    Hello all. Latest update from my Vardy. Going through the awkward stage of last baby teeth falling out and his male hormones kicking in, going from boy to man. Hard work but love him loads.

    Picture of him with my sister in laws dog.... A picture says a thousand words lol

    Oh he is so adorable!!! What a cheeky looking chap!
    We found Aggie crunching away on one of her own puppy fangs the other day as if it was a wine gum or something :eek: Hoping that's most of them out now.
