    I remember being out with you and the group one day running a double blind at Joe's. I went to correct my dog for going back to the first line of a double blind and I believe it was Charlie who told...

    They want you in your HOUSE. We're seeing some random things out here on the east coast too.

    More "game" before you throw and just pick it up and walk away when he drops it. I don't know that you need to kennel him for 30 minutes for dropping a bumper.

    But I'll bet if he learns to hand...

    Agreed.

    In addition, most dogs with thunderstorm problems have a host of other issues going on that the owner either likes or doesn't notice. They're usually very clingy around the house (people...

    Keep the dog with you, on leash and moving during such events. You'll probably find the dog does better over time.

    If he breaks out of a crate why would you just put him in a stronger crate? The...

    Do you happen to go pick up the bumper and tease him with it when he does this?

    If the behavior elicits a positive response from you then you're very likely going to see more of it in the future....

    He seems to have taught himself a pretty good lesson there. He did it right the last time because that's how he won the first two times.

    Sounds like a teach, teach, teach thing. Maybe a little...

    OK So I'm not a judge but if you have the money and time to campaign a dog at either level, you have the $20/dog to pay for the second bird. Clubs just need to increase the price and be done.

    Seems like that could be potentially poisonous if ingested, although I have no doubt it would work.

    The world is full of trainers with 30 years experience who resent those with 15 years experience having anything to say that doesn't agree with them.

    I would probably drive the dog into the cover as opposed to stopping them with pressure in the cover itself. They should associate the pressure with the command but it can be chancy to use the collar...

    I've voiced my opinion on under the table board and train operations many times locally. I usually get shit on by happy customers who have no idea that they put their dog at risk of seizure.
