    Well, maybe RTF isn't what it "used to be" for you. But it's pretty damn good for those of us who appreciate it. Maybe RTF isn't a refuge for FC earning veterans anymore. Maybe it's more for strugglers now who need a boost in their first few years of learning.

    Sorry it's not what you wish it is, but that's not a good reason to insult people who haven't insulted anyone else (that I've seen in the last year).

    Jennifer- the person you think hasn't insulted anyone has done quite a bit of it. Go back and look. It used to be a resource for everyone - FC earning veterans and newbies. But newbies and incidents like this thread have driven them off when someone is insulted by the person you feel is a shining star. That cheap shot towards Howard was uncalled for. Who has time for this kind of b.s.? Maybe people would be more willing to help those who talk about training more than their hormones.

    Some of us who have been around a long time just don't appreciate RTF being only for the birkenstock wearing, clicker trainers. And those who think we all have to love the same thing.

    And I don't have to like smart works, and I have read it and analyzed it. Tried it. Didn't like it. Unlike some who may just not like Mr. Graham, I have a basis for my opinion. And, I'm quite entitled to state it. If you like Smartworks, that's fine. to each their own. Obviously, I have been successful without the use of Mr. Graham's program.

    Oh, and there really is no reason to swear.

    Click means treat, not Birkenstocks or communism.

    Sorry you're having a bad day, Susan! Hope tomorrow goes better. You usually have my respect.

    I am actually having a great day Jennifer. And I intend to do the same thing tomorrow. I am really not sure why you started discussing communism. That is thread that would belong in POTUS.

    I am well aware of how to use the clicker, and even use them with puppies. Typically I just substitute the word "yes" in place of the click these days. It is much easier to use when shaping the puppies behavior. You always have the word "yes" with you, but you may not be able to find your clicker. I also find that it is easier to use for new people when you're trying To get the timing correct.

    I had a huge scalloping problem-HAD-until I started Howard's drill he shared here. It is now in my book of drills with a big star by it, no more walking baseball. I train alone 90% of the time too.

    As for the RTF culture I came in on the tail end of "good old days", the thing I notice the most besides the lack of input from the really good trainers, is the inability to take criticism in any form. Sometimes it is best to shut up when someone who is knowledgeable and experienced talks. And a little respect of that knowledge/experience would be nice.

    mediocracy is not the new norm-otherwise why do we all seek out the puppies with the big titles behind them?

    Thick skinned marsh mop owner regards,

    I do. I have had so many clients because of your program and seminars. You can't train dogs from videos. Hope your sales are up

    Bump in case Howard would be kind enough to reply to my follow-up question that got lost in the shuffle.

    TIA
