Ideal Environment

The Crustie has quite a bit of energy, so a fenced yard to run in would be well suited for this one. But make sure he has a coat in cold climates and don\'t allow over stimulation on a hot day. He should be socialized early to help him be his best.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.
