July 6, 2011


BIGGEST CHALLANGE OF THE DAY --- IS---- THERE ARE NO NAMES LISTED FOR PUPPY SITTING TODAY-- WHICH MEANS IT IS MY JOB.  SO IF YOU COULD SPEND EVEN A FEW HOURS  PLEASE........  AND THE OVERNIGHT IS OPEN ALSO...
***************************
 
TRAINING DISCUSSION OF THE DAY---
PI---- AT 4 MONTHS--- IS FASCINATED BY THE WEEK OLD PUPS-
MOMMY WOULD LIKE TO CHEW HER UP-- AND IS VERY CAPABLE OF DOING JUST THAT.
 
MOST OF THE VOLUNTEERS GIVE HER A SHOVE WITH THEIR HANDS MOVING HER BACK  OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN  SO IT BECOMES A GAME FOR PI
 
PERSONALLY I WOULD SHOW HER THE LINE IN THE FLOOR--- TELL HER A BIG "NO"  AND IF SHE PUTS A FOOT ONE INCH ACROSS IT-GIVE HER  A NO  AND A SNAP-- NOT HARD  JUST SURPRISING  (PREFERABLY WITH A ROLLED NEWSPAPER)  ACROSS THE OFFENDING PART... HER NOSE .  IF I GOT THE TIMING RIGHT SHE WOULD REALIZE HER MOVEMENT ACROSS THAT LINE WAS WHAT CAUSED THE SNAP ACROSS HER NOSE.  IF SHE IS HARD HEADED SHE MIGHT TRY IT ONE MORE TIME TO SEE IF SHE GOT THE SAME RESULT... THEREAFTER SHE WOULD BE TRAINED.  AND IT IS NOT THE AMOUNT OF FORCE ON THE NOSE... IT IS THE SURPRISE FACTOR--  DOGS DO NOT LIKE SURPRISES.
 
GOOD OLD CAESAR--- HE STRUGGLES WITH ANIMAL RIGHTS AND "TOUCHING " THE DOG WITH HIS FOOT--  IF HE WOULD USE THE WORD "STARTLE"  THEY MIGHT GET OFF HIS CASE...  BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT HE IS DOING.  JUST AN UNEXPECTED  TOUCH STARTLES THE DOG BACK TO PAYING ATTENTION TO CAESAR.
THAT IS WHAT THE NEWSPAPER WOULD BE ---IF DONE CORRECTLY  PI WOULD FIGURE IT WAS THE NEWSPAPER AND NOT REALIZE YOU WERE CONNECTED.... AND HOW NICE IT WAS OF YOU TO WARN HER WITH A "NO"  JUST BEFORE THAT NEWSPAPER CAME DOWN.
 
ANOTHER---- I ALWAYS SAY---
YOU CAN NOT TRAIN A DOG WITH YOUR OWN MUSCLES- THEY HAVE TO CHOOSE TO DO THINGS YOUR WAY--
 
THE TIGHT LEASH ROUTINE IS THE SAME LOGIC.
PULLING AGAINST THEIR PULLING GETS NO WHERE--- ESPECIALLY WITH HUGE DOGS..  A YANK BACK INTO PLACE AND THEN LOOSE LEASH  MAKES THE DOG REALIZE " PULLING ON A LEASH CAN BE SCARY- SO I BETTER WALK QUIETLY NEXT TO HER."
 
THERE IS $5000 OF TRAINING LESSON IN THAT ONE CONCEPT.
 
I HAVE NO CUT AND PASTE TO FILL THIS DD..
 
HOW DULL
