  1. 1. If I like it, it’s mine 2. If it's in my mouth, it's mine 3. If I can take it from you, it's mine 4. If I had it a little while ago, it's mine 5. If it's mine, it must never appear to be yours in any way. 6. If I'm chewing something up, all the pieces are mine. 7. If it just looks like mine, it’s mine. 8. If I saw it first, it’s mine. 9. If you are playing with something and put it down, it automatically becomes mine 10. If it's broken, it’s yours.
  2. 100% agree. Dominant dogs walk into a room like they own it, with confidence. It's the insecure beta and omega dogs that growl and bicker trying to establish what their place is in the hierarchy. Unfortunately the terms dominant and aggressive have been thrown around so much as blanket statements that most dog owners using them to diagnose their dog problems, are doing so incorrectly. I'm curious what does the trainer in the class advise you to do when the dog behaves this way?
  3. sometimes I really think people log in here and start really controversial topics like this on purpose just to see what kind of reaction they can get.
  4. thank you thank you for all the advice on this topic!! I made many mental notes and approached our training sessions this past week with these tips and made it over the hump (so to speak)! We succeed in getting the sheep to walk across a good sized field in an orderly straight line. Then we turned them around and walked them back! When it all came together it was the greatest feeling ever.
  5. Does he tug? You could try throwing a ball/tugtoy combo and his reward for bringing it back would be the tugging.
  6. I'm allergic to dust mites and I throw my pillows in the dryer on very high heat every night before bed. Can you do something like that?
  7. Did it look like this: because that's my dog, JC. He was just learning that when I posted it. He's better now! I have a list of 100 tricks that I intend to each my dogs. We cross them off as we learn them. I use a clicker but I believe in shaping behavior rather then luring or physically making them do something. Shaping really makes their minds work and forces them to think.
  8. CBC news- Tucker the spinning dog I hope the video is available to watch in the US since it comes from a Canadian channel. But here's the story in a nutshell: Also interesting is the debate going on in the comments section.
  9. Wait. You wanna talk about facial expressions? Here's Lola just this past weekend not happy because her brother got to play and win a bunch of prizes and she didn't. Then check out how proud he looks.
  10. The dancing presidents are by far my most favorite part of that website.
  11. That's too funny! I wouldn't want my dog to poop where he eats his cheese though, but that's just me.
  12. why are they hitting the dogs with sticks though? Just random hitting or hitting with a purpose? Are they using specialized hitting sticks or whatever they can grab at the time? I'm very curious.
