Oh boy....some paws have been where they shouldn't have been.  :) Likewise, my spotted carpet has the markings of a gardner, drain cleaner and an all star athlete who plays in rain, sleet, or snow!

Hello there! I'm here and am very pleased to meet you.

So you live in the middle of nowhere with 2 fabulous Newfs huh? Well, I am in central California (US) and it is not much better here.  ;) I have on 2.5 year old male Newf named Bear. He is coming to realize that his beloved winter (40-50 degrees farenheit) is soon coming to an end. It is March and already in the high 60's-70's daily.

So, welcome to the forum. I look forward to hearing more from you and seeing your doggies.

Hi Toni! Welcome to Big Paws Only! Even though your dogs aren't as hefty as the rest, their size makes them as welcome as the rest.  :)
I am glad that you have found a breed you really enjoy. I have heard that retired Greyhounds do make great pets!
 I have not had any personal experience with them, but I can offer a piece of advice with the biting problem. First, I completely agree with you about causing more pain or allowing aggression- even if it is just to "put him in his place". Since yelling "no" and "ouch" don't work you may want to try an attention getting method. Get a small, metal juice can (apple juice or something) and put a few pennies in it. Cover the top with tape and then shake this rattle can whenever Oz does something bad. It is loud and will stop any behavior at that moment. Once you have the dog's attention you can begin to correct the problem. And since you said that putting him in the backyard did work, you may try that too. I know that with my Bear, outside punishment is the worst. Good Luck and keep us posted on how the rattle can works!

Hi Ann! I love Saint Bernards too. I own a Newf (my love)  but would really like to add a little (Saint) brother to keep him company.  :)

Woo-hoo! Newfs on the loose. I'm definitely there! :D

I think that big, giant dogs are the best! I would never ever trade my giant breed for anything else and was wondering how you felt about it?
