Thanks for the encouragement.   Last night for the first time I heard him growl.  I believe he was growling at a perceived danger outside, but I looked at him sternly and said "don't you be growling at me" -- then he curled up on the floor.  He'd just been out in the yard and had been barking .  .  .  I think he thought he was warning me of something. 

Also I'm teaching him to sit -- every time we go outside or before I feed him, I make him sit.  As well behaved as he is, I'm surprised he didn't already know this.  When we go for walks, he's very good about staying right beside me.  He is mildly curious about other dogs.  He doesn't cower or puff up either when a dog is barking at him -- he just looks at them as if to say, don't worry little fella, I'm not going to hurt you.

A little schnauzer took a great interest in him and was jumping all around (behind a fence).  Einstein just stood there very patiently and let the little guy sniff him.  He truly is a gently giant.

One more thing -- he was very obliging and let me brush him -- most of him.  He's going to have a bath this weekend and I'm hoping he is agreeable about it.   Does anyone have any advice about what to do to help his coat grow in thicker?  When he was turned into the shelter he had patches of missing fur on his sides and his elbows.  I don't think the elbows will be growing back in, but his sides seems to be filling in pretty well.  He's also a little thin on his snout.

Thanks for your feedback and I'm so happy to have this forum.

There's a great product for helping with a healthy coat.  It's called Inflight Coat Formula (www.inflightco atformula.com).  It keeps the coat in longer (suppresses shedding) and allows the new coat to fill in.  A lot of breeders use it for their dogs who are being shown.

Oh, wow! What a stunner he is - he's definitely my kind of dog. I've wanted an SRO myself for ages, and he certainly looks like one. Unfortunately, there aren't any here in the UK so I guess I'll just have to find a Wolfhound and a Pyrenean and take it from there ;)

Or maybe just clip my Kom...?

I have been using the Inflight for about a week on Dixie.  I only plan to use it to get ready for the March set of shows.

What do you think of it?  I've got a bucket in the freezer and haven't used it yet.  Chester's coat got so thick and heavy for the winter (in So. Calif???) so he didn't need it...and I haven't worked up the courage to show him.  The breeder recommended it for him....

So far so good.  I just add it to her good and she likes it.  I do think it is adding a little extra undercoat and a very nice shine to her coat.  The breeder that told me about the Inflight breeds Newfs.

Oh, do a show. You will so get hooked on it.  I have 18 days of show I want to go to this year.

I would love to have a BPO meet and greet at a dog show!  I'm hooked on the shows on t.v. now -- it would be so cool to meet some of you in person.  DO THE SHOW  -- DO THE SHOW  --   :o
