Reading through a closed thread brings me to a topic that I haven't seen mentioned here before.
It has occurred to me more than once, and as recently as this week, as I put my 12 month old through dbl T,
that, despite the fact that I have been training for 23 yrs, and have put multiple dogs through the basics, less experienced trainers can sometimes be a great source of advice.
Perhaps it speaks to my own misgivings. Here I was battling an issue, when my pal says, why the hell don't you put a rope on him? The correction was so much more effective than electricity, and the issue was resolved quickly. Why didn't I think of that?
Point is, great minds aren't always experienced minds.
I wonder how many others have gotten good advice from newbies?
