i have a request on how to train a dog to alert for a deaf person... most dogs have that built in by the knocking on the door....they will run to you and clearly say" open that door so i can bark at them" i can tell you how i started-- object being to make a repetitive noise .. in my case i bought a $1.98 battery fired doorbell . as i sat watchign tv i started it on off on off.. and encouraged to dog to come to me for a cookie. doesn't take too long they already know that part... try opening a box of cookies... the come to you for that noise.......----- next string some wire and have the bell ring 20 or so feet away .. with a cookie on top of it. granted to start with you will be leading the dog to teh bell but with encouragement and excitement the dog will get the idea of comeing to you and telling you t here is a cookie by teh bell.. it is a small jump to a different noise... like person calling you over and over. dog has to come get you and take you to the source of teh noise..to get the cookie. few minutes couple times a day and within a week they have the idea.. REPETATIVE NOISES PRODUCE COOKIES... FROM THERE IT IS OVEN TIMERS AND TELEPHONES...
PEGGITY WAS TEH DANE I TRAINED FOR A WOMAN WHO HAD A BALANCE PROBLEM AND WAS DEAF.... SHE WENT TO LIVE IN PENNA AND THE TRAINING DID WORK AS PEGGITY WOKE HER OWNER UP WHEN THE FIRE ALARM STARTED AND WAS CREDITED WITH SAVING AN ENTIRE APT BUILDING... I WOULD HATE TO GUANRENTEE MY TRAINING FOR THAT ... BUT IT SURE WORKED THAT TIME.
THAT IS ONE THING OUR TRAINING IS ABOUT ... WH EN YOU ARE CONFUSED COME TO US.
WHAT'S HAPPENING TODAY????
NOW IT IS ABOUT OUR CHICKEN DEPARTMENT--- IT IS A SHAMBLES-- I AM ASHAMED OF TEH MESS... I HAVE NOT GONE NEAR THE CHICKENS IN YEARS.... FEED ADN WATER 5 DIFFERENT GROUPS WHILE WALKING 200 FEET TO AND FROM THE WATER SOURCE.??? / FIRSTLY WE NEED ONLY ONE GROUP WHICH MEANS WITH 2 ROOSGTERS, WE NEED TO FIND A HOME FOR ROOSTER #2 ( WHIHC I HAVE DONE.. WITH ONNE HEN FOR COMPANY) WE NEED TO HAVE CHICKENS WHERE WE CAN SEE THEEM AND THEIR WATER ETC ON A REGULAR BASIS.. IN THE PROCESS IT WOLD BE INTERESTING TOHAVE THEM ON CAMERA... SO I AM TRYINT TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO BUILD A CHICKEN COOP IN THE "V" PEN ON TEH DRIVEWAY CAMERA. I THINK I CAN BUILD A COOP AND NOT BLANK THE VIEW OF THE POND OR HONEYMOON HILL..
SO TODAY I WILL QUICKLY POUND SOME REBAR IN POSITION AND SLIDE WHITE PVC PIPE OVER THEM TO DESIGN THE BUILDING. THIS CAN TAK A WHILE AND MANY REVISIONS.. IF YU LOOK CAREFULLY NOW, AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PLASTIC SLIDE IS A WHITE ROPE WHICH
IS FROM THE CAMERQA TO SEE WHAT IS " ON CAMERA" ---NOW WHERE TO PUT WALLS AND ROOF !
MAYBE THE OLD COOP CAN BE A CLUTTER CONTROL BUILDING.. IF THERE IS ANYTHING WE DO VERY WELL IS ACCUMULATE CLUTTER.!
MY BUILDINT TECHNIQUES USUALLY GO VERY QUICKLY... PLYWOOD COMES IN 4' X 8' .. THOSE 2 X 4 PIECES OF WOOD ARE 1.5 AND 3.5 AND PUT THEM EVERY 16 INCHES ( 16" ON CENTER.)... SO WITH CAREFUL PLANNING I HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO PUT UP A WALL AN HOUR.
FO LAND THE POST ACCURATELY BECOMES NECESSARY-- THINGS LIKE VERTICAL WITH PERFECT DIAGIONAL MEASUREMENTS . 100 YEARS AGO... WITHTHE FIRST DEAGLE HOUSE I BUILT, , I WAS OFF BY 3/4 ON THE DIAGIONAL AND FIGURED WHAT TEH HECK..BUT BY THE TIME I GOT TO THE ROOF THAT 3/4" HAD TURNED INTO SEVERAL INCHES....NECESSITATING HUGE ADJUSTMENTS IN THE ROOF. NOTHING WAS "SQUARE" NOT EVEN CLOSE.
WHEN I DESIGEND TEH KENNEL AS IT NOW STANDS #1 TO #8 I USED PILES OF CARDBOARD AND DUCT TAPE TO GET A GOOD LOOK AT WHAT WENT WHERE AND DID DOGS FIT UNDER THE LOFTS.???... I HAVE A PICTURE SOMEWHER OF TALL" BROWNIE" SGTANDING UNDER THE CARDBOARD FOR MEASURING. SO TODAY IT WILL BE PVC PIPE AND MILES OF ROPE. IT WOULD BE SIMPLE IF IT WAS NOT FOR THE CAMERA AND IT'S WIDE ANGLE BIT. THE ROOF KEEPS GETTING IN THE WAY.
DENIS WILL BE BACK TO HELP-- HE NOW HAS MONDAY TUES OFF. HE WILL ALSO BE REORAGANIZING THE BARN ROOM...
THAT HE POLYURETHANED LAST WEEK.
