JUNE 21,2014 I FORGOT. THE DD .. BUT I GOT 5 POST HOLED DUG !!!!i don't know how to get rid of that picture.. i copied and pasted the verbiage--- but that picture got copied and plastered and now i am stuck with it. servicedogproject..ma•a minute ago
I JUST SAW GRACE DISCIPLINE A .PUP PERFECTLY-- I WISH EVERYO9NE COULD SEE THAT... JUST AS THE MOTHER DOG WOULD DO IF THEY GET TOO ROUGH, SHE TOOK THE PUP BY THE SKRUFF OF THE NECK AND QUICKLY PINNED IT TO THE FLOOR - IMMEDIATELY LETTING GO- AT WHICH THE PUP SAT UP AND LOOKED AROUND WITH A " THAT DIDN'T WORK OUT THE WAY I HAD PLANNED" LOOK ON HIS FACE. AND JUST WANDERED OFF. LITERALLY 2 SECONDS AND LET GO ENTIRELY -- IF YOU DO IT CORRECTLY JUST WATCH THE REACTION.. SORT OF "OH - I BETTER DO SOMETHING ELSE" IF YOU HOLD THE PUP DOWN YOU HAVE RUINED IT.. AND IT BECOMES PUNISHMENT... SNAP THE PUP TO THE FLOOR AND LET GO IMMEDIATELY AND IT BECOMES EDUCATION. LET THEM THINK ABOUT IT WITHOUT TOUCHING THEM. THIS SHOULD BE REPOSTED.....FOR DOG TRAINING LESSONS. SDP TYPE
manny was tooo fat--- my way to judge is... if there is a slight depression at the top of thier tail with mounds on both sides, that is fat. ribs showing is not bad-- too thin is when their 2 hip bones show on the top-- but too thin is better than too fat...
It's been about 2 months since me & Manny were at the farm for a visit &
recertification. I have been very strict to the diet that Megan suggested for
Manny and am very pleased to let everyone know that he is looking Great! The
first couple of weeks were tough for both of us but the only thing that is
important is Manny's health. I don't know exactly how much weight he has lost
because of no scale but he looks beautiful. Hardly a dimple you can see.
However, he does have a super big barrel chest. We will have another
recertification in September as we will also be attending the retreat you
invited us to. We will see you then
