    I have a 7 yr old female pom-chi who was born missing a front right leg. Well, she has a little “drumstick like chicken wing” and has never had trouble getting around like a normal dog. She’s as normal as an other as far as she knows. I have just got a 6 week old Damerania and my older dog is taking to her very well. I love these small mixed breeds and have so much love for them it amazes me how we, as humans, can love and be loved in return by these wonderful animals. As far as training these dogs go, an individual gets in return what is put into training them and I find that it also makes us better individuals ourselves in kind. Just had to tell about my wonderful pets after reading others stories.

    My dameranian puppy won’t walk with leash. But if i don’t use the leash, he’ll walk following me. Is it a problem? (I just thought about obedience)

      Hi Claudia!
      Clinginess is often seen in very young pups, as it is their natural behavior to stay close to their mother and littermates. When a Dameranian puppy goes to its new home, it tries to cope with its new surrounding by staying close to its people. As an owner, you offer love, hugs, praise, food, and comfort; so all these things naturally attract your young pup. Moreover, Dameranians are characteristically friendly, so it is normal for the pup to crave your companionship. Although you cannot undo this innate characteristic, you can try to reduce its clinginess by obedience and positive reinforcement training.

      Our Dameranian had the same problem. Try using a harness so the leash clips to her back instead of in front of her. Also look for a leash with the teeniest clip,it got in our puppy’s way and she was afraid to walk with it. Stay persistent and offer her a lot of positive encouragement, we took our girl for many “drags” before she got the hang of walking on a leash. Now she loves going for walks and will run over to have her leash put on!

      Yes!! Lol. Like any dog, it’s natural instinct. If you get them as a puppy, you can train them not to, especially if you have them in the home. But just like people..everyone develops and learns differently. No animal is the same. Max, my 2 year old Dameranian has quite the personality! When we visit Grandma’s, she has cats.. Sometimes he will chase, other times he ignores them. I tried to train him to not ‘discriminate’ lol. I will say though, best companion I’ve ever had.
