    Haha sorry I was using "smurf" as a COTH-ism. In dog-speak: a young, amateur, Nov A handler recently earned his first title in French Ring Sport using Plus Reinforcement techniques. +R is as uncommon...

    We get a safety briefing before big staff travel. One of the officers told us of a ...technique, I guess. Two individuals in a hallway. The man politely yields so the woman may walk ahead of him. She...

    I'm sorry you were served such a fright! That's irresponsible and risky of the owner. Even a 'dog person' would have been scared.


    No, you speaking to the dog didn't trigger it. Your presence...

    Balanced training "balance" sounds good

    I think "balanced training" is a fantastic marketing term. You're supposed to balance your checkbook, your work-life hours, your muscles, your diet. So balancing your training sounds ideal, yes?

    I think I see what you mean... like if the glasses rode higher up on his stop/eyebrow ridge, you'd feel more comfortable that he was comfortable?

    I don't have any hands-on experience. Can you...

    My experience with artificial turf is in training facilities. I suspect it will hold stank. Depending on what's underneath, it won't drain well. It will get ripped up. Crushed stone will have better...

    I'm a little confused by this paragraph. What have you tried? What method would you like to use? If you're not doing that, why not? Are you saying you are trading and it isn't working?

    I think...

    Thanks, Nezzy. I'm kinda embarrassed to admit it.

    Crate hoarders, tell me this is normal

    Totally rational to buy a 36" crate 60+ miles away when:


    current dog is 8lbs
    current dog has four wire crates (don't make me count soft crates, too)
    imaginary Next Dog already has two...

    If it wasn't for the ick factor, yes. It would be like popping a really exceptional blackhead. I've been casually reading Lauraruffian's posts about her snakes, their hatchlings, etc. I think she...

    No one has mentioned thresholds. She can't think straight when a dog/new person is __ meters away. Find out where that is and start at __ - 2 meters.

    Oh I totally read your OP wrong. I was talking about dog on R. Dog on L looks very young; too young to tell breed. Spitz type.

    Most quarantines (those I've seen in MD and VA) = keep dog strictly on home property and no interaction with outsiders for 10 days.

    For some reason, we have a bunch in this pocket of NoVA. Funny how one breed will kinda catch in a certain community. The ones I know are whiny, environmentally and physically sensitive, and...

    I see Papillon in there, too. Silky coat, hare feet, colored ears and "butterfly" on the forehead, dark pigment. Though her head looks huge! Maybe that's a photo distortion.

    Oh I see the disagreement. I was thinking we blame dogs more today than we did in yesteryear -and I suspect we're defining yesteryear differently. Shrug. I'm happy to agree to disagree amicably.
