Re: Holy Cow! the clicker works!!!

They look pretty obedience-focused, which is not necessarily BAD, just maybe not what you're looking for (unless you want to compete). I also did not like the picture of the woman pushing on the dog's butt to get it to sit. You're in New York? Try this link: http://www.petprofessionalguild.com/FindP...

Re: Holy Cow! the clicker works!!!

Congrats! That's awesome to hear. What do you think about working with a trainer? If you think lay down is awesome (which is IS), wait until you see what you can teach your pup working with a clicker professional!

Re: Low Stress Handling, Restraint and Behavior Modification

Yes do it! I saw Sophia Yin this spring for a 3 day conference and her vet clinic/handling stuff is amazing. As a Registered Animal Health Technologist, I would LOVE to see more vet clinics embrace low-stress handling. There is a shocking lack of knowledge of animal behaviour in many vet clincis.

Re: Resource guarding

I just can't understand why someone would treat resource guarding with aversives (that can link to negative associations with the human involved) when it is so workable without?
