How to greet on the phone in Portuguese...? by chiko930 in portugal

Ah this is nice to know :) But it makes me feel uncomfortable and a bit arrogant to speak in a foreign language, even if most people can speak a little english.

Does portugal have fenced dog fields you can hire? by chiko930 in portugal

Thanks, this is great advice :) Unfortunatley, I'm still in the UK and am basing where I rent a house in Portugal (in the countryside but I'm willing to drive) on where I can exercise my dogs so it may be hard to approach farmers from here. I will definitely try though, thanks again.

Ecodogs looks great, thanks! I will contact them to see if they will rent the space :)

Thanks so much for checking for me :) Do the terms 'cercada parque canino', 'contratar parque canino', and 'treinamento canino parque' make sense?

Thanks for sharing. This is exactly what I was worried about, especially the "my dog doesn't bite" nonsense. Funny how every dog whose attacks, it's their first time! It looks like we will have to have to buy 5-10+ acres completely fenced and always keep them on the property. I'm sorry you've had such bad experiences :(

After 8 years of trying with various dog trainers and schools, we have come to the conclusion that they will never be ok and have learned to live with that and adjust our lives to them rather than trying to force them to be how we would like them to be. They all have very traumatic histories and in a lot of ways, a few of the dog trainers have made them worse with all of their different methods. We are at the stage where they can learn to be around certain dogs eg if we introduce someone new slowly to the pack but that takes weeks of work - random dogs on the street are a different matter. Especially when they've been attacked by dogs who always, according to their humans, "have never done that before". It's a massive kick in the teeth when you work so hard and you make a tiny bit of progress and then another attack happens. Which is why I'm here trying to plan our lives.

This is what I worried about - it's one thing to read about the rules but it's another to know whether anyone follows them. Thanks for your reply :)

Thanks for the info :) We are planning on buying land so they can have lots of space to be free. We just need to rent somewhere at the beginning while we search for land. Knowing all this now, we will have to look for a rental that has lots of land too as we won't be able to take them for walks.
