    Just read this entire thread (not the most productive work day) Wish I had found it sooner!
    Koda is such a beautiful dog and a lot of the training you are doing or advice given in here is going to help me with Gracie
    I creeped your videos on Youtube too... your property looks amazing. You're living my dream!
    Can I ask what part of Australia you're in?

    Glad this thread is going to help you
    Thanks, I do love living on a farm, nothing better i reckon I'm down in Victoria (i don't wanna be too specific, i like my privacy) It can get pretty cold/muddy down here in winter... which can be annoying when you're running cattle like we are, but still, its a great place

    Of course, have to keep it safe on the internet I was just curious because of the landscape
    I lived in Victoria for 3 years before moving home and getting Gracie - I much preferred the climate down there than up here in Queensland
    Looks like you're in a lovely spot. Enjoy!

    I admit I don't know how dogs survive coastal QLD and northern NSW - with the ticks and cane toads and snakes.

    I like bits of Victoria but you just can't beat Adelaide beaches. And I can't stand the Vic BSL crap.

    We live next to a reserve which is great because Gracie has a LOT of room to run around
    The downside being a creek running right through it and parallel to our yard
    This means there are literally 5-10 toads in our backyard every night without fail
    This sounds crazy but my partner and I haven't been out together past dark unless Gracie is coming with us since we got her

    As for ticks she wears a tick collar, has monthly protection applied and gets checked (she thinks she's being pat) after any visits to water/bush

    Its funny how different Koda is with small dogs! Had a SWF come and visit today, she was happily wandering around the backyard with Koda, not a fuss in the world. Koda was totally chilled out, he listed to all my commands, didn't show any jealousy if i patted the other dog, and he even walked away when the little dog gave him a quick growl for invading her personal space.

    Here he is laying down at my feet while the other dog explores the yard
    I've found that the ThunderShirt seems to tone down his general 'over excited' behaviour a bit so i'll be using it more often now.

    So - 'maddogdodge' - how were you today when all this was happening ? Cool, calm, collected and full of confidence - with not a care in the world !

    If the thundershirt works for both of you - keep on using it !

    Haha You're right Riley, i was totally calm and confident
    I am working on controlling my own emotions when training Koda, and I do feel like I am improving. One step at a time though
