Hi Lillian, regarding your comments about Paddy. The only one I can offer advice on is the pulling, as I had the same issue with my boy. Go to your nearest Jolleyes pet store and ask them to fit a HALTI collar to him (my boy takes a size 3). I does exactly as it says and stops pulling kindly. Always make sure that the adjustable part is tightly fitted and never forget to clip the little snap hook onto his own collar ring as that means he can not run away if the HALTI comes over the back of his head!. It was the best tenner I ever spent and after a little getting used to by him, it will do as it says and stop him pulling and also stop you getting pulled off your feet! I hope you will have the same success with it that I have had and also that his other issues subside with age or maybe someone else can offer advice on them. My sincerest regards and best wishes.

HI James , Thanks for your speedy reply, i will get another Halti i also took Pads to training school  and the teacher told me to get a Gentle Leader off the net which are supposed to be better than Haltis.  He hates the Halti and the Gentle Leader , he's definitely a free spirit.My stories about Paddy are such i could write a book about him .YES!! HE'S STILL VERY NAUGHTY, ARROGANT ,DISOBEDIENT, FUSSY EATER  and won't get off the settee unless he's pulled off, then he waits for us to get up and sneaks back up again. i'm pleased to be back on the site and my apologies if i have not returned answers to any questions. Best Wishes  Lizzi.PS check him out on instagram look for Loopyredsetter Paddys antics
