Sure ya can! A clicker is just a behavior marker, it doesn't have to be a noise. I use a thumbs up instead of a clicker, which I like better anyway since I can't ever accidentally leave my thumb at home ;)

Re: Partially deaf???

Quite possibly :) I don't frequent this forum as much as I used to, but I poke around from time to time. I am extremely well aquatinted to raising, training, and living with deaf dogs. If you've got specific questions, I'd be happy to chime in with some advice.

Re: poop-chute problems

I'd do a pure elimination diet. Start with canned whole fish, NOT in oils (which are likely soy, canola, or other veg oils that are NOT healthy for the GI). The bones are important and will allow you to do an elimination diet for longer than just fish meat. No treats, nothing but whole canned fish,...

Re: poop-chute problems

Well, by bland I mean strictly meat and pumpkin. Maybe that's note bland enough for what you are talking about, here, though. The diet he was on previously as well as the new one do not contain any of the typical wheat, dairy, corn, soy allergens anyway. He's been on a mostly fish-based, grain-free ...

Re: poop-chute problems

We did a bland diet for about a week after his first vet visit, but that was also while he was on meds so it's tough to say if it had any effect or not.

poop-chute problems

With an issue like this, I figured the topic at least needed an amusing subject title... I haven't posted here in a very, very long time - probably like 2 years or so. Jack is almost 9 now (seriously, when the heck did that happen??!), and oldmanhood is starting to creep up on him. For the past 2 mo...

Re: Harness or no harness?

Harness for what, though? Leash training? Weight pulling?

Re: Shy personality = hard to train

With some dogs, time doesn't always heal all things. They need a little extra help in learning that the world isn't a big scary place. And don't be so hung up on consistency across the board. Sure, consistency is important for each individual dog, but dogs are individuals. What one may find enjoyabl...

Re: Shy personality = hard to train

Truthfully, I find shy and fearful dogs the most rewarding dogs to work with. What specific steps have you taken to attempt to make her feel more comfortable with you? What specifically have you been working on training-wise with her? What methods have you attempted to create a positive association ...

Re: Vibration Collar

So just to clarify...if you buy a shock collar w/ a vibration setting...that vibration setting is stronger than if you buy a vibration only collar? And is it the vibration only collar or the shock collar that allows you to set the strength of the vibration? Could a shock collar set to vibrate be us...
