    I've always said that you can tell what kind of kids someone has by looking at their dogs. And vice versa. Training is training. Standards are standards.

    OK seriously folks, be honest here. Is there even any doubt that properly used, E-Collars and Crate Training would result in better kids?

    I realize you can't do it, no way no how, but you KNOW it would work.

    Sit up straight - nick - sit up straight regards!

    On a related note, I often wish it was as easy to put myself on a diet as it is to put the dogs on a diet.

    Seriously though, I agree with Matt - Training is Training. Standards are standards.

    Come back to me when you open the door for your lovely wife, look at her, and with all the tenderness you can muster you say "Kennel".

    Okay why stop at kids, my wife thinks our labs are better trained than I am. Go figure, I think the reverse is true. BTW all our kids turned out okay mostly, sometimes.

    Neither "kennel" nor "fetch" works with her!
