Winslow, a Bernese Mountain dog at six months old

Winslow at Six Months

I haven't posted much about Winslow lately.

He's hit the six month mark, and is weighing in at over 80 lbs. A big boy, indeed!

Winslow is a very high-spirited pup. It's exhausting trying to keep him under control. I think he's got a definite Alpha Dog vibe, which means he's constantly challenging other dogs and us. I've had to do some research on training an alpha dog, and how to keep them in line.

It's not gonna be easy, because the main requirement in keeping control is to NEVER LOSE YOUR TEMPER. Easier said than done with this guy. Maybe it's just mostly his puppy brain, and he'll settle down in a year or two when he matures.

Yeah, I think I'll hitch my wagon to that dream.

Anyway, here he is showing his predilection for huge sticks.

Winslow says, "When it comes to sticks, Go Big or Go Home!"
