beachdogz Posted January 12, 2009 Report Share Posted January 12, 2009 Hijacking this quote from another thread: “There is an on off switch, but you have to train it in by not playing frisbee for four and 1/2 hrs.” So I’m intrigued. What exactly is the on/off switch and how do you train it? My BC is not what I would classify as hyper. She wants to play ball a few times a day – she loves to squeak the ball, or she loves the ball on a rope that she twirls with in a circle before shaking it to death. When she does want to play ball, she pesters you - squeaking the ball as she pushes it on you. Sometimes she wants to play with the tug toy and does the same. And she is obsessive during the intense times of play; then she calms down and quits. And the “boof” barking that was discussed in another thread: when she wants something – to go out, to play ball, for you to get her ball – she non-stop “boofs”. No on/off switch there. I’m not even sure she needs an on/off switch…she will quiet down and just lay next to you in between her play periods. But I am curious as to what you all refer to when you refer to the on/off switch, so I’d like examples as to when you should train one, why you want to train one…and how you go about training it.
