  1. Very sudden decline and lameness :(

    Dog Health Questions
    So sorry to hear that Soro is not doing well. I hope you get some answers and he gets some relief.
  2. Kong Classic with smaller hole?

    General Dog Forum
    That's interesting and now I'll spend the day trying to imagine how that happens.
  3. Kong Classic with smaller hole?

    General Dog Forum
    You might try a squirrel dude: https://store.petsafe.net/busy-buddy-squirrel-dude It doesn't have a smaller hole, but it has fringe on the opening that makes it a little more difficult to get stuff out. There are a few similar toys by Pet Safe (https://store.petsafe.net/busy-buddy-chuckle-toys)...
  4. Hi! I'm a trainer using the Koehler Method, ask me your questions about it!

    Dog Training Forum
    Thanks! I'll see if I can get that here. If you ever get a chance to hear Ken Ramirez speak about his conservation work do it! I think he's written about it a bit on Karen Pryor's site, but there's nothing like hearing him tell a story.

    Do you remember the name of the show? That sounds really interesting.

    For sure. "They are insecure, can't stand to lose, and hate challenge."

    You've come here offering nothing but insults, vague threats, and rants against how you imaging modern, force-free training methods. You've offered no evidence to support your statements, have not demonstrated any desire to learn, and have yet to make a rational argument for your training...
  8. Question about training Quadrant use

    Dog Training Forum
    Ethics. Also, I'm smart enough to be able to figure out a way to train my dog without causing discomfort, fear, or pain.
  9. A sad thing

    I'm so sorry you're dealing with such a difficult situation. As long as she's happy, does anything else really matter? Good thoughts to you and her.
  10. Hello!

    Attention All New Members
    Punishing obviously isn't working.... Implement management strategies so he can't practice undesirable behaviors. Make a list of all the things you don't want him to do, then after each item list an alternative, more desirable behavior. Teach him the desirable behaviors. It's helpful if the...
  11. Controversial subject: Use of Electronic Collars

    Dog Training Forum
    I'm curious what sort of response you expect here that is different from what has already been said in your punishment thread (http://www.dogforums.com/dog-training-forum/493858-little-discussion-about-positive.html) and the lengthy discussion in the off-lead / on-lead dog discussion...

    Mine get clipped every 8 weeks with minimal grooming in between.

    I agree that how you approach breeders is important. Reputable breeders care a great deal about their puppies and want them to go to good homes - not just home that can pay $X for a puppy. When I contacted breeders, I introduced myself / household, explained why I was interested in the breed...
  14. Mini Australian Shepared Bites!

    General Dog Forum
    What do you mean "we used a treat as a cue"? A treat isn't a cue. It can be a lure, but you should fade it fairly quickly as you teach an actual cue. What do you mean "Worked fine for couple of months. Not any more."? She no longer follows the treat? In that case, it's likely that the final...
  15. Puppy snapping but not biting

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I think it's fairly normal for a young pup who may be a bit impulsive. Check out Kikopup's no mugging video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRT6r6d79OU
  16. Mini Australian Shepared Bites!

    General Dog Forum
    If you mean that you are physically moving her by "When I try to take her out" stop it. Also stop threatening her with the spray bottle. Either let her sleep where she is or teach her a cue that means "follow me" and then lead her to where you'd like her to sleep. You can also teach a "place"...

    So cute! One of my favorite pictures of my boy is him in a pink collar. His nose work leash is pink, too.

    General Dog Forum
    Can you provide more information? How old is she? What do you mean by the dog is in a bad mood? What is the exact situation when she bites - what happens before, what happens during, what happens after? Until you have a handle on the issue, you'll want to manage her so she cannot bite anyone...
  19. Skittish Dog

    General Dog Forum
    Dogs don't instantly comprehend words or noises. They do know that some sounds are scary (e.g., buzzing, clapping, yelling) or that some sounds are followed by something unpleasant (e.g., a shock, collar correction). For some soft or timid dogs - like yours - they may work, but can exacerbate...
