CONSISTANT HANDLING NOT TRAINING

 I HOPE THIS PHOTO SHOWS UP IN THE EMAILS

DEBBIE-- WHO NEVER FED THEM BEFORE- WAS SHOCKED TO HAVE THIS HAPPEN....




AND IT IS NOT UNUSUAL--- THESE PUPS ARE THINKING-- NOT TRAINED.
IT IS A BEAUTIFUL PICTURE OF OUR "TRAINING" METHODS.
IT IS ALSO WHY WE DO NOU "USE" PUPPY RAISERS.. I HAVE TO GO BACK TO PLAYING MY OLD FIDDLE... DANES ARE BORN TRAINED-- JUST DON'T WRECK THEM.
THE BEST ILLUSTRAQTION OF THIS CONCEPT IS THE OLD MOVIE
MIRACLE WORKER- WITH PATTY DUKE---
YOU PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN AROUND FOR A WHLE HAVE HEARD THIS BEFORE... SORRY..
MIRACLE WORKER IS THE STORY OF HELEN KELLER AS A VERY YOUNG- NON COMMUNACATIVE CHILD-- ND TEH FRUSTRATIONS RELATED TO THAT BLIND/DEAF SITUATION...
SHE IS A VIOLENT, SMART TYPE NASTY FURNATURE THROWING BITING BRAT AS HER TEACHER TRIES TO BREAK THRU AND TEACH HER SIGN LANGUAGE.
ALL OF A SUDDEN SHE REALIZES THE HAND MOVEMENTS MEAN "WATER" - AND SHE IS OFF AND RUNNING .
NOW IF HER TEACHER HAD MISSED HELEN'S RECOGNIZING THE WATER--- HELEN'S LIFE MIGHT HAVE BEEN MUCH DIFFERENT
AND THAT IS WHERE WE ARE AS SERVICE DOG PROJECT.-
WE HAE TO HAVE ENOUGH ... CORRECT... HELP/ HANDLERS TO BE SURE WE DON'T MISS THE OPPORTUNITY.
THERE ARE A COUPLE TEEN AGE DOGS IN THE BARN WHO NEED A REFRESHER COURSE BIG TIME. BUT THE CONCEPT IS THERE.
THIS WAY YOU END UP WITH A BAILEY... WHO IS BASICALLY UNTRAINED, BUT JUST LISTENS TO YOU WHEN YOU SPEAK TO HER.
IT IS A WHOLE NEW WORLD
AND IT TAKES CONSISTANT HANDLING
**************
NOW FOR THE REST OF THE STORY...
YOU WILL SEE ME TODAY STRUGGLE TO GET READY FOR A PHOTO SHOOT WITH WILLIAM-ON MONDAY-- FOR NEXT YEAR'S CALENDAR..
THE CONCEPT IS TO PULL JANINE ONHER ROLLER BLADES WITH A ? "BRACE" OF 3 DANES --- MAYBE MORE --- RUNNING FULL TILT.
TO THAQT END I WILL BE TRYING TO GET SOME TO WALK /TROT/GALLOP TOGETHER-- AND I WILL START IN THE PARKING LOT W HERE THE PUPPY HILL CAMERA CAN SEE US
COUPLE PROBLEMS FIRST-- I OWN A BUNCH OF OLD HORSE HALTERS WHICH MAKE GREAT PULLING HARNESSES-- SO I MUST LOCATE THOSE.-- AND I HAVE SOM OLD LEATHER REINS FROM MY DONKEY DAYS WHICH WOULD BE NICE TRACES.
THANKS TO THE CAMERA PEOPLE, CRITICAL TO THE ENTIRE OPERATION ---ARE ALL THOSE 4"BRASS DOUBLE ENDED SNAPS WHICH I CAN USE TO TIE THEM TOGETHER.
BY SUNDAY STEW WE WILL EITHER BE PRACTICING OR MOPPING UP BLOOD FROM THE WORLDS BIGGEST DOG FIGHT.
 
? 3 HARLS? CHAOS, OPAL AND BENTLEY???
? OREO COOKIE ? NOEL BENTLEY + SOMEBODY??
 
STAY TUNED.... IT IS A GREAT IDEA...
**********
WE HAVE ALOT OF THOSE IN THE LAST FEW DAYS

  3. Having raised a few danes from pups, I wholeheartedly concur with your statement about simply not ruining them! We always spoke in full, if short, sentences to ours, and used hand signals at the same time....worked a charm. When they sat they heard the word 'sit', when they walked towards us they heard the word 'come', etc....with the appropriate gesture...it was easy to communicate with them, and they were civilized early in life, like the pups in the picture, just waiting and thinking 'I'm gonna get a goody!' LUV IT!
