    Choke Collars

    HOW SAD - I, in fact, do not use a choke chain. However, IF you use a choke chain, and correct at the correct time, don't yank on their neck, and immediately release, the NOISE becomes a deterrant. I agree that if misused or misunderstood, choke chains can and do hurt dogs, which is why I said it takes a very careful owner to use one properly. I myself know that even if I correct and release, Tyr will pull until the cows come home and I -- to avoid hurting him -- would have to let go of the chain, thereby defeating the purpose of having a training session completely.

    About the paws...

    2000+ and 5000+ aside, when I arrived here, I went like lightning on the posts. And while my posts may not all be quality ( :oops: more like 80% not quality) I have a large quantity of humourous or chuckle-worthy posts! Perhaps I should just go away, but I am TOOOOO addicted....

    I would go with Elmo, given the three choices....or something amusing like 'Bad Dog' "Good boy, Bad dog!"

    Fallen in love with hairless dogs!

    Got to admit, I'm not one for the hairless creatures people insist on calling dogs... :lol: ;), but while we're on the topic of which dogs we DO like, I would LOVE to get my hands on a Norwegian Lundehund.

    Dogs and vacuums

    I know DP already posted about Kavik, but I am going to further it. To Kavik, the vacuum cleaner must be a monster that occasionally escapes from the closet, and he tries to help me subdue it, so as I strangle it's long neck, and it tries to escape my grasp, Kavik attacks what he perceives to be the haunches. And when any other dog comes near the vacuum, Kavik 'warns' them, rather forcefully that he, being the alpha, should be the one to fend off the intruder :)
  11. I was just wondering how each of your dogs let you know that they want snuggles? If you are standing, Kavik will jump up and try to pull you down to him for a hug, or if you are sitting or laying down, he pull plop down beside you and put the top of his snout across your upper lip. And then there is the age-old method: Lift your hand with his snout onto him. The BC stare helps his efforts a lot too.

    How does your dog ask for snuggles?

    No offense taken....after all, I consider myself a boy ;)

    How does your dog ask for snuggles?

    :lol: yeah, we have to remind Nate all the time to tell Kavik 'No' properly, cause usually he will just say 'AH! no, down doggy, down. Please no, Aaaaauuughhhh!!' and Kavik will go nuts for the attention :)

    Dog Books

    I have a Rotti training book even though I never owned a Rotti :roll: .. I would love to have one eventually, they are such awesome beasts :P

    border collies anyone

    Sounds like Tyr in a way. He looks menacing and tough, but get him close enough to any dog/person/moving object, and he's all wags and whines. And even though he's twice Kavik's size and weight, he doesn't throw it around much. Kavik is still the Alpha :)
  23. Sorry your experience at the shelter wasn't very pleasant :(

    Dog Books

    It would get noticed easier if it were an entirely new board. :roll: But I don't think it matters all that much.
