Re: Handstand

Yeah Tiva, he's a vizsla! They are overall a pretty soft breed with other dogs and he's fitting in with my rather picky guys amazingly well :peace: Oh Lauren, you should have seen Ruger when I was practicing 7's handstand! He was TERRIFIED! He must have thought that the wall was an evil creature tha...

Re: Consequences

I'm going to agree with elegy about upping the rewards. Trained behaviours slip and fade over time unless you stay on top of them. I think she is just forgetting why she should come flying to you and ignore her environment (because that's where her reinforcement is!) I would be taking a step back an...

Re: I love agility

At what age do they recommend starting agility? I was thinking 3-4 months when he will be a year or so old. I wouldn't start doing any full-height equipment or sequencing until he is over a year and preferably with a set of x-rays done but until then you can work on TONS of foundation stuff! Flat w...

Re: Cesar Millan

If one of these average people turns on the tele and watches Cesar's show and begins to look at his/her dog in a different light then its a good thing. Except that I find he portrays dogs as relentless social climbers who must be "dominated" or they will take over the world! Prompting peo...

Re: Puppy clicker training

Thanks tiva! Seven's a Vizsla and the "fluffy one" is probably a Cocker Spaniel mix. I know what you mean about the timing, I think I'm usually faster but the camera made me nervous lol I was cringing a bit when I watched it back again. Good point about the drywall, I didn't even think of ...

Re: 5 week old with an small attitude

Well, you really don't want to put a complete stop to it. Puppies need to learn how to use their mouths and teeth gently and they only do that by putting them on skin. Just give her feedback when she's playing with you. When she bites hard enough to hurt, yelp and the game ends but if she's using he...

Puppy clicker training

I recently got around to taping one of my training sessions with Seven. It's not very exciting stuff, but, oh well...we can't all be Red :)) I am attempting to get an automatic down on the table for agility, and as I don't own a regulation table, this piece of drywall and 4 bricks will have to do. T...

Re: Handstand

Okay, quick question :) in the first video on the second page there is a moment when he lifts his rear end without actually making contact with the board and you click three times in succession without delivering any reinforcement. Is there some reasoning behind this? I guess as it's obvious that Ja...

How would you discourage the behaviour had you been in the OP's position?

You don't "correct" fearful behaviour. It's quite counter productive. He needs to associate uniformed men with wonderful things.

So the point of the dominant dog collar is to choke the dog out?

Yep, same with any "choke" collar. They are designed to restrict the flow of air.

So the difference between a traditional choke chain and this collar is that you can make this collar tighter? Perfect! Makes choking your pet sooo much easier! :thumbsup:

My little guys eat such a small amount that splitting it into two meals never really filled them up. Once I switched to once a day, they weren't nearly so "starving" throughout the day.
