    You're right, that's a hypothesis on my part (that people would complain).

    They are obviously looking to increase revenue and have no additional units to rely on for that so, price has to go up...

    If they made the service fee $6.00 everyone would complain just as hard. It's a price increase and there's no way they can do that without RTF lighting up with complaints. Doesn't matter where they...

    Thank you Dan, I appreciate your comments.

    I don't mean to demean anyone and believe me I'm far from loaded myself. $25 is $25 and I don't want to lose it any more than the next person.

    I just...

    Again I didn't say you or anyone else was doing anything wrong.

    How does the dog know that "no no" means he made a mistake and to come back and line up again? Do you say NO NO HERE HEEL DEADBIRD...

    Very clear... NO and a tap with the stick brings the dog's attention back to you... he changes his position and you reward him. Very clear, unlike NO used in the generic "stop that" sense.

    Actually the instructions on a blind are not fuzzy at all. When I say GOOD to my dog she locks onto the picture she's looking at and her feet actually patter because she knows... I'm gonna send her...

    It's been a while and if things don't change soon, it will be a while longer.

    EE is a business, period end of story and they get to set the price. The HT community doesn't own it and the ONLY say...

    I usually refrain from buying products whose pricing I don't like. Pretty simple solution. If this is all that terrible, then entry numbers should be slipping...

    Are they? I doubt it.

    A lot of...

    Sincerely sorry we have to waste each other's time on this Kim but I want you to end up understanding where I'm coming from regarding the OP, not the training method or the puppy. I don't want to...

    Only if you're in the habit of being sensitive and reading into things Kim :) Nowhere, at any time did I say you or anyone else was wrong, not once.

    I'd rather see the OP handle a puppy this way if he's going to "correct" rather than redirect.
  12. Right, and given they had to ask how to correct a...

    Right, and given they had to ask how to correct a pup for nipping I assume they are a complete newb and need low risk guidance regardless of the end goal they might have in mind. That's all.

    Let me clear about something.

    I presented an alternative viewpoint to that which some people have. I never said anyone was wrong or that anything was impossible.

    I simply said I prefer to look...

    IMO the type of stim (blunt vs. narrow) isn't the least bit important with a sensitive dog. Your faithful use of whatever collar you buy makes the difference. Select your collar based on...

    I need to write and article or do a presentation on this for my basic obedience business but here is what I tell people about the word "NO" and why I don't use it...

    NO - what does NO mean to a...

    I'm told (by a big name pro) that a lot of the demand in MN and thus master tests is due to a migration of people FROM HRC. I don't see those folks going back.

    Agree, between the schedule change and the "think twice" fee, we should see it go away all together.

    and in this case you'll still be $50 ahead + travel and lodging if applicable, so... stop crying
  19. If you were to imagine the output of a collar on...

    If you were to imagine the output of a collar on continuous stim as the teeth in a saw blade, that's what "narrow pulse stim" would look like. Now imagine gentle, rolling swells like you would get at...

    I'm not trying to tell anyone how to spend their money Renee, but if things are that tight... sorry, just doesn't make any sense to me to be playing this game to begin with. What happens if one of...

    You guys are doing the right thing and not bitching about the fee Jennifer. That's good sportsmanship and not being selfish.

    There are obviously some problems here with the systems/rules/fees but...

    Valid point Penn, and arguably could have been handled better.

    I guess I'm just sick of the bitching. No one likes the problem and they like the solutions even less! I'm going to try and title a...

    if your budget is so tight that $25 affects you, then you shouldn't be wasting $500 - $1000 titling a dog

    They have a technology bug that needs to be worked out but in principal, the $25 fee is to make people think twice before throwing shit at the wall to see what sticks in terms of training.
