Marley didn't care one bit... He got to the vet and tail wagging happily went into the back with the vet techs.... happy as a clam to see them. 8 hours later he happily came wandering out from the back, a little drugged up, happy as a clam to see me again. He doesn't hate me, and he never even acted...

pits are great companions but they need walks and lots of exercise so I don't think a pit would be a good candidate for your mom unless she will be having someone come by on a daily basis to walk the dog. I walk my dogs daily and provide training on a daily basis and they require a lot of work. One...

Pit Bull Terriers and AmStaffs are essentially the same dogs when you're talking about unregistered pets... if you just have a mix-breed pet dog without papers and unknown parentage there would be no way to tell which you have. (Although Amstaffs do tend to be heavier built?) I would just say you ha...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE "The power of Positive Dog Training' by Pat Miller. It's got a week by week plan for training, and great instructions... not tons of pictures, but it's really easy to understand and laid out pretty well. I got it relatively cheaply on Ebay :) Alis, clicker training is a method ...

My pits are taken to the vet regularly and checked all with clean bill of health. So before you start accusing someone maybe you should get your sources straight first...ask me before you judge me. Technically they did ask... if you don't know what health testing is, there is a pretty good chance y...

Marley and Carrie both know: Sit, stay, stand, come, spin (clockwise), twirl (counter-clockwise), sit pretty, out (out of room they're in), breakfast and supper (means go to your feeding spots), drop it, leave it, back up, sleepytime (go to bed), upstairs, downstairs, target, go for ride?

I guess I was just getting frustrated because I wasn't seeing any immediate improvement. I just wanted to say congrats on working with your fearful dog. It's a long slow process. I have one too, Marley is scared of EVERYTHING... and it seemed to be getting worse as he got older, not better. Red gav...

You should take a look at the intro sample at the top of the page:

just so that when the mods do get around to approving people you have everything covered in your intro.

Looking forward to seeing you in the forum! Welcome!

Re: CGC cert. woes

*sigh* I was so excited about doing this, and now feel so discouraged. Don't feel discouraged, there are tons of dogs on here that didn't pass the first time... it just gives you something to work on and you go back and try again :) We only have one test a year around here, and neither one of my do...

Its especially hard in the horse world; good GOD don't ever try to suggest to someone that MAYBE their horse would have less lameness issues if they hauled their horses shoes and had their horse trimmed so it had REAL HOOVES again, not coke-cans for feet. You're just batshit crazy then :headbang: t...
