dearabbysmom from Indiana on April 30, 2014: Molly is adorable! Clearly, she knows when we're in a hurry so she holds it, as you described, until she can have some exploring time. It is a hot and arid place dotted with cactus and spiny plants of great variety. They are so smart, they have figured out what is ok and when its ok :). kbdressman from Harlem, New York on June 07, 2015: Thanks for this article! I promise there is a dog that is already tailored to your circumstances! Old enough to be separated from mother, housetrained, introduced to solid food; obedience training and socialization can begin at this early stage, Can begin exercising; vaccinations and de-worming needed, Adult coat growing in; adolescence begins, with increased independence, fear, disobedience; training and socialization important during this stage, Sexual maturity; can be transitioned to adult food; can begin "adult" exercise regimen, Don't exercise puppies too hard before they're nine months old, Strong herding instincts mean a leash is required when exercising in public, Yards must be securely fenced to keep the dog from running off. We are having the times of our lives with little Molly and her big attitude. Their schedule is, "Play, eat, pee, sleep, repeat." I was so happy to see this post! Horses were fascinating to Jimmy. There last litter was awesome and they went to working, companion and sport homes. She was quick to realize that the crate was her refuge, not her prison, and she settled in for a happy nap when we'd place her back inside. I'll probably get a GSP or a Vizsla as well in a couple of years, McNabs are a little "difficult" as the single dog in the family for empty nesters, but I'll have Valencia just hold the leash for the other one when we go for walks (we do have leash laws after all - just doesn't actually say the dog has to "wear" the leash). Molly looks and sounds like a lovely girl! It's also recommended that you have a regular exercise schedule for the dog, such as walks, jogs, or bike rides after breakfast and dinner and playtime in the afternoon. McNabs love to work. If your McNab is drooling excessively, it might be a sign of a medical issue, in which case a veterinarian's care is needed. She's mostly butt right now! And attitude -- wonderful, spunky sweet attitude. We free-feed dry food plus give regular feedings of top-quality canned food, as well as offering plenty of fresh carrots and other vegetables. Marcy J. Miller (author) from Arizona on May 01, 2014: Alicia, thank you so much! Thank you for admiring our sweet little Molly.
Congrats to you on Hub of the Day honors! It truly meant a lot to me! Due to their breeding as herders, McNabs are extremely fast and nimble; they are also obsessed with cleanliness, and have excellent hygiene habits. Hi, MJennifer. I found your article! McNabs are bred to be independent thinkers, rather than wholly submissive followers of the human-given direction. Hope you and yours are all well --. ;-).
I have one and I know they are very special dogs. For example, I'll say, "Earl, let's go to the barn," and as I walk straight to the barn, Earl will run off and take a roundabout route to get there. It is not normal for a healthy, young McNab to have a weight issue. Go the long way round and bring 'em in.". The other looks like a Border Collier terrier - Lily, she is fully grown but looks like a puppy Border Collie - a forever puppy! A Catahoula or Kelpie is better suited to a more aggressive handler, while a Mcnab or Border Collie is sure to be devastated if spoken to the wrong way. McNabs are often ivermectin-sensitive dogs. Barbara Purvis Hunter from Florida on June 07, 2015: This was a delight to read, and it makes me think of my Sweet Angel--a Pomeranian. Molly the McNablet, though, had been around adult barn cats since birth. I told them I suspected she was when they introduced themselves as Alexander McNabs grandaughters by his mistress. The Ann Arbor Dog Training Club was formed in 1967 and has been teaching people to train their dogs ever since. Marcy J. Miller (author) from Arizona on May 07, 2014: Traveler, it strikes me as funny that these black-and-white dogs are so smart about black-and-white speech!
Give them salmon oil on a daily basis. By the very first morning, Molly was already running to the door when she needed to eliminate. If one does, something is likely very wrong indeed in their lifestyle or feeding program. They're not noisy dogs unless they've been made neurotic by poor handling, excessive confinement, etc. They do learn that quickly. What an interesting breed. 4 talking about this. Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on May 01, 2014: I love this hub, MJ! Thank you for this article and helping educate people on McNabs! Now she's learning hand signals -- equally impressive.
If I ever want to have a dog as a pet in the future, I might consider the McNab breed.
Overall McNab care and maintenance won't take too much work, but will need to include a good bit of daily exercise. They play hard with great bursts of romping energy and then they will sleep soundly.
