    Agreed. "No" isn't productive because it doesn't give the dog any direction. It's more of a frustration outlet for us humans...the vast majority of the words we use with our dogs are more for our...

    Terry, I have a Polaris Ranger set up to road four dogs, and they do love it. But insisting they carry a bumper for a mile or two is not ever going to be part of my conditioning routine. :)

    "Obviously none of you know what ENS is"is probably not a good way to get people's interest.
