Re: A reminder for summer weather!

We were playing a short game of fetch in the yard preparing for our walk. It is about 75 degrees here. I didn't fill his outside water dish because we weren't playing for that long. After we finished playing and came inside he nearly collapsed. He recovered, but was wobbly. He was staggering around...

OH for the love of $*@@*# I tried to correct the spelling of Kohler (which is a sink) but the damn thing keeps freezing up on me. It's too early in the morning for this!

That's the old Koehler method of training dogs. It IS considered inhumane these days, though Koehler advocates would say that Koehler advocated these methods only when the next step was euthanization for a dog.

And dogs have been killed with these methods.

Well, Billie failed her CGC, but it was strictly lack of obedience training/proofing on my part. So, back to the drawing board... She did excellent at Picnic Day on Saturday and got quite a few fans. She had a small mass removed on Friday and we're awaiting the biopsy results. Hey we did an event a...

Pete the Pup Bean Doll

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170341787802 I bought a few of these years ago and this little guy has been sitting on a shelf. I still have two I'm keeping for myself, but I figured it was time to find this little Petey a home that will show him much more love! (And of course...

Got to give him style points for the save of his self image he made at the end of the clip though. Transplanting all the blame unto the owners (who were present) and away from himself (who was supposedly 'in charge' of the situation) The quick clip of the freshly choked off dogs is nice too. "...

He didn't see that coming??? I agree. I said "Bamo" about four seconds before it happened... and THIS is one reason I think CM is irresponsible in his portrayals. He encourages people to take these kinds of tactics (his little disclaimer is nothing really), and he doesn't even have the ri...

I have something similar to that metal one. It attaches to the wall. It's white metal and very sturdy. I got it online, but cannot remember where. Foster and Smith or cherrybrook or petedge or someplace like that :)

If he is really strong a determined escape artist, avoid chain link altogether (unless you go with the really thick, heavy duty chain link).

Go instead for something more like this

I do know what some people charge, but you know what - there are lots more who charge a lot less. It's the market. Shop around and go with someone who uses the positive methods you prefer and charges a reasonable fee. If you want to shell out $1000, it's your buck, but you can go down the block and ...

that illustrates the point. You read a million books that said X. There are another million books that say Y and yet another that say Z and some that say 1 and 2 and stay away from the alphabet altogether. There would be no practical way to decide on THE WAY ALL DOG TRAINERS should train. The only t...

Well, I'm one for NOT having yet another law that regulates dogs and dog training... but I'm all for personal responsibility. If you have a dog and are interested in a class, ask to observe. Any reputable trainer will let you observe a class. Besides, there are so many different training styles and ...
