    If people allow their dogs to chew and savage things in "play" a tennis ball will be the least of their worries. A very great deal of tennis ball work is applied in Spaniel training in the UK; it's...

    Bruce,

    When I had Springers I always used an Acme Silent; it was a real tooth killer until I slipped a bit of soft plastic tube over the mouthpiece. Even then it was still dammed heavy after you'd...

    Just to expand a little on copterdoc and doluvah's posts .... what you have done so far is to compel the dog to obey you through the medium of the lead. He's only doing it because he hasn't got an...

    I think you need to distinguish between the body language you have taught the dog to display, and the concept in her mind of what she's supposed to be doing. You've got a good response from her on...

    Really? I wonder if Mr Gibson will review his training (or non-training) policy after this event. We can call retrievers off a running bird and teach Springers to sit on a rabbit flush, are coon...

    Very often a hematoma is kicked off via the dog scratching itself in response to ear mites; so it's worth checking the inside of his lug 'oles. Have a good sniff, and look for excessive amounts of...

    PHRgold,

    I've had the Wildrose DVD for a couple of years, but no single resource will IMO give you everything. I think it's wise for you (and novice trainers) to do some research before starting...

    Tuff luk Yanx.

    USA v Belgium was the best game so far in the World Cup. None of this defensive pussy footing around, both sides went at it hammer and tongs; great to watch. In a properly organised...

    The use of e-collars is unlawful in Wales; the rest of the UK is OK so far. Similarly to the Canadian experience there was a Private Members Bill tabled in Westminster just recently, but it bit the...

    cj,

    That device is primarily aimed at training flushing dogs. The idea is to place the launcher in some cover, put a live bird into the pouch and release it as the dog approaches. When you put an...

    I didn't watch the game so I'm just grateful for the points. Best of luck with the Baggies, I hope (and believe) you'll dodge the drop.
