JAN 6 2014
-THIS WILL BE A TRAINING CONCEPT DOGGIE   ..
 YESTERDAY MEGAN HAD A  PRETTY GOOD TUSSLE (AKA   FIGHT) WITH WALTER AND FIDO... SOMEHOW I THINK THE FIGHT WAS WAL;TER-- I THINK FIDO HAD VERY LITTLE TO DO WITH IT..  BUT FIDO GOT CHEWED P A LITTLE... ALL  THE HOLES WILL HEAL  BUT POOR FIDO HAS TO BE PRETTY STIFF AND SORE...

I THINK IT WAS CAUSED BY A LITTLE KNOWN TENDENCY OF DOGS --  I CALL IT THE POSTMAN SYNDROME..  AS A ROUTINE --- THE POSTMAN COMES TO THE DOOR  PUSHES MAIL THRU AND THEN GOES ON HIS/HER WAY... FROM THE VIEWPOINT OF MANY DOGS IT GOES LIKE THIS  "  HERE HE COMES AGAIN  IF I BARK LOUDLY ENOUGH  I CAN  MAKE HIM TURN AROUND AND GO AWAY" 

SOME DOGS WHO  DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TO DO CAN DISTORT THAT INTO ATTACKING A VACUUM CLEANER'S MOVEMENTS   TOWARD AND AWAY...  CAR CHAsing is another....
A DOG IS VERY AWARE OF BODY LANGUAGE-- THEY CAN DETECT THE SLIGHT DEGREE OF TURN OF YOUR SHOULDERS -- IT IS A VERY SIGNIFICANT DETAIL..

SOOOOO WITH MEGAN  --- FIDO  HAD SOME INJURY AND GEORGE TOLD MEGAN TO KEEP HIM ON A LEASH--- THAT CHANGED THE ENTIRE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN WALTER AND FIDO..  LEAVING WALTER TO MISINTERPRT FIDO'S ACTIONS... AND BEING AN ENTIRE MALE.. WALTER WOULD BE READY TO CLEAR THE FIELD OF ANY OTHER MALES  NEUTERED OR NOT.  AT SOME POINT.. I SURMISE... FIDO DID NOT HAVE THE NORMAL DOG LANGUAGE TO WAL;TER-- AND WALTER FIGURED  I CAN TAKE HIM... SO HE DID.

WITHOUT SOUNDING TO BE A SEXIST--- ENTIRE MALE DOGS NEED TO HAVE THE "ULTIMATE WHOA" -----  STOP DON'T MOVE..---- YOU ARE NOT IN CONTROL... I MENTIONED THIS A COUPLE WEEKS AGO WITH THE 1800 POUND MRS ASPEN-- THE MULE... SHE SEEMS TO HAVE A  NICE  ULTIMATE WHOA-- WHICH IS GENERALY A SIGN OF ALOT OF LOG DRAGGING OR AMISH PLOWING...  THEY HAVE TO HALT IMMEDIATELY --- ALL 4 ON THE GROUND AND DON'T MOVE.. ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE ATTACHED TO 1/2 A TON OF SOMETHING-- SAME THING WITH DOGS  .,
 WTH LITTLE DOGS GENERALLY THIEIR OWNERS JUST PICK THEM UP INSTEAD OF MAKING THEM MIND THEIR MANNERS  WHICH IS WHY SO MANY SMALL DOGS ARE A PAIN IN THE NECK...  THE SHORTCUT DOES NOT WORK...  
I THINK THERE IS A SIMILAR PROBLEM WITH KIDS... BUT WHAT DO I KNOW....

SO MEGAN NOW HAS WALTER ATTACHED TO HER LEFT KNEE  -- UNLESS HE IS ON FORMAL PLAY TIME.. 

THIS IS ONE PLACE WHERE IF A DOG IS REALLY BAD, AN ELECTRIC COLLAR DOES WORK..  AND BEFORE ANYONE COMES DOWN ON MY HEAD... I OWN ONE-- I HAVE NOT USED IT ON A DANE, BUT I  CURED A DOBERMAN OF KILLING CATS.... IT WAS BEAUTIFUL-- HE WORE THE  "DUMMY COALLR" FOR A WEEK IN PREPARATION FOR THE LESSON..-- THEN I PUT ON THE LIVE ONE AND LET HIM LOOSE WHERE THERE WAS A BARN CAT-- NICE CAT -- NOT ONE TO RUN-- AND THAT DOBERMAN STARTED TO STIFF LEG UP TO THE CAT-- AND OPENED HIS MOUTH TO GRAB IT... I PUSHED THE BUTTON AND HE WENT OVER BACKWARDS--   I GUESS HHE FIGURED THE CAT DID IT AND WAS TERRIFIED OF CATS EVER SINCE.  THERE ARE TIMES WHEN IT IS NECESSARY..

READ JANINE'S BOOK... I TOLD HER NOT TO TOUCH THE ELECTRIC FENCE WHEN SHE WAS VERY YOUNG....  IT WASN'T ALL THAT BAD... BUT EFFECTIVE... AS SHE GOT OLDER I HAD TO PAY HER 25 CENTS TO TOUC H THE FENCE TO TEST IT ND SEE IF IT WAS LIVE...

BUSY DAY-- I AM A LITTLE BEHIND ON THESE WHITE PUPS...  I NEED TO RIG SOMETHING WHERE I HAVE ONE AT A TIME...  YOU CAN NOT TRAIN 2 VERY YOUNG DOGS AT ONCE.
