    Makes sense. To me a dogs best asset is what's between his ears. A lot of them have the inherited traits to do the job but a lot of them don't have the brains to use those traits even when it comes...

    [B]






    I totally agree with you BUT there is no avoiding it completely.
    A large part of what we all do is creating patterns. I do it, you do it, we all do it. It's called repetition. ...

    Interesting.
    First of all I rather doubt there is a desire to please but more of a desire for things to go their way or a dog that is more agreeable to do things your way. Sure some are much more...

    Pre basics = indirect training

    The new post about indirect pressure got me to thinking about my definition of pre basics with a puppy.

    It is great advice and if the dog had been taught to pay attention to the handler this thread would not exist. That is the whole point but do this when teaching obedience not later when trying to...
