Re: Dominance Theory, Where Did it Come From?

I found the Monks of New Skete VHS dog training set at a thrift store one day... some very good content, but some frighteningly aggressive training tips :S "If the dog does something you don't like, place one hand under its chin, look it in the eye, and bring your other hand down firmly over th...

My floors are all laminate wood. I start with a biodegradeable plant based kitchen cleaner (non toxic), and finish with white vinegar.

Re: Dead-end houstraining

So much work! Whats funny is that when I talked about adopting this Beagle my mother was allllllllllll for it because 1) He wasn't a pit bull :P 2) It wasn't a puppy, which she felt would be too much work (100% agree). Joke is on us :) He has a small plastic crate, which he can stretch out in, stand...

Dead-end houstraining

I adopted a very cute very sweet Beagle last year from my school (vet college). He was a 6 (now 7) year old Marshall Farm bred Beagle, who was raised in a kennel environment from day one. When I first brought him home, he was very stressed, which was understandable as these were big changes for a ke...

Re: Discouraging discussion regarding training

Thank you for the links guys, I will forward a few to her, and I have a ton of books she could borrow. To clarify, I think her boyfriend used positive techniques (she said he used treats, not sure hes using operant conditioning but there was some positive reinforcement atleast). I addressed some of ...

Discouraging discussion regarding training

I spoke with a friend of mine yesterday, who just moved in with her boyfriend. He has a lovely little red shelter dog, who is very beautiful, kind, and relatively well behaved. Apparently he listens to everything the boyfriend tells it to do. However, my friend is frustrated that the dog does not li...

Re: Advice would be appreciated

Good call Amie; will tweak it a bit so that is clear. Spoke with pups owner today on the phone and he informed me he had no idea there was a leash law; he just moved here from Northern Canada! Was then very concerned that I was going to "turn him in". I told him I had no intention of doing...

Re: Advice would be appreciated

Thanks Tiva, great advice. It WOULD greatly reduce my stress in that I would no longer be concerned about her hurting another dog, but it would make me feel like I was adding to the whole "bad dog" image that pits have. I just spoke with our rally instructor, who is very actively involved ...

Re: Advice would be appreciated

Exactly. The friend that I asked to call is also another vet student, so I thought she'd advise appropriately. But honestly she might not have called until later on that day... I honestly don't know. I agree, I should have gone to speak with them asap, and examined the dog myself; lesson learned the...

Re: Advice would be appreciated

There is definitely a leash law. But I have no idea as far a liability goes. Should I look into getting some sort of liability insurance? I know in some areas its required, I'm just really worried that if this type of thing happened with the wrong person they might sue... and win. Someone told me ea...
