    Hi S

    It's even more fun now that one of us (or both us) can't remember what we did or said the last time we saw each other. And then she tells me off for not doing something I don't remember being asked to do. I really am going to need to train her better, and be more consistent about standing up for myself. At least my dog doesn't bite me.

    Oh, God, ROFL. I've found it is easier to train a comatose dog to fetch than to try to modify a family member's behaviour!!

    Cool

    I think prong collars are a great tool. It annoys me how ignorant some people are toward them. A check chain for my GSD did nothing much. Once I put a prong collar on him, he only needed a few reinforcements with that and he was heeling so much better. And the fact that it is used as a training tool, means I now don't HAVE to use it much at all. He knows exactly what I expect from him.

    I also use a prong when working with my boss's Czech Shepherd. She is a little out of control without it (she is an ex airforce dog they obviously couldn't handle properly) but much more behaved when attached to a prong. I don't need to use it much, because she knows she is attached to it. However if I need her to perform I switch collars so I am not commanding her to do so against the prong.
