    Add my vote for Russell. Their shop is about an hour from my house, and it is really cool....boots made by hand, the old fashioned way. When you go there to be measured, they write all your info...

    When I start "here" with a puppy, I don't give it a verbal cue right away. I don't say anything. It's pretty easy to get a puppy to run to you, and when they are in the act of doing that, I will say...

    I can promise you that no dog ever smells a bird and thinks "Hey, that smells just like the training bumpers!"

    Do those scents smell like birds? Nope. Do they smell? Yes. Do they help dogs? No....

    What I've always liked about clicker training, and why it works for so many pet dog people? Because it lays out a specific sequence of things in a specific order, and the people learn to follow it,...

    Just as an example of how well good quality leather holds up:

    A year ago, I sold my old leather couch and matching overstuffed chair. I paid just over 3k for them...in 1996. And I sold the set...

    Get real, thick leather....don't buy the "bonded" stuff or the ground up and pressed stuff. And make sure it's aniline dyed, meaning dyed all the way through. It minimizes the scratches and wear a...

    To me, the table is part of the process of pressure conditioning. The dog being placed on a table, which is strange and new, is letting the dog learn to deal with strange and new...and that is mental...
