    Off to check if this forum has a "ignore user" option and I suggest you do the same, as we will both be a lot happier remaining ignorant of each other's future posts
    OMG! ARE YOU SERIOUS?????
    Where in my post did it ask for advice? reread my post it says "woot for my good training" not "i need help with my training!"
    Where does it say i know it all?
    Who the hell died and made you all knowing and the ONLY person allowed to have an opinion?

    I need to get over myself?? wow! have you read your post????????????
    Other people on here have read my other posts and know what training i do with my dog. If you had read them you would know too... seeing as i have never seen a post from you, i think ignoring wont be hard!

    Doesn't matter. You're posting on a forum where many people can comment on your posts. You can't control what they say, or even if they read and understand your opening post properly.

    You did leave yourself wide open by assuming that your dog bolting off your property was the result of "good training". And how were we supposed to know that one good recall was not a fluke. Really reliable recall involves 100% success rate over a sample of 100 or more responses, not one lucky break.

    And you were lucky your dog didn't get into trouble when it ran away. You know that.

    So I don't understand why you get so upset and lash out when someone tries to help and you can't even see they were trying to help.

    If you don't like people responding in their own way to your posts, don't post where people can put their comments.

    *Shakes head*
    My original post said "yay, he did well. My training is working." how does that say talk to me like im a child? Where does it say i know it all? Where does it say judge me and my abilities? Where does it say that i didnt know what to do and give me advice????? A simple "im gad he came home, have you tried x, y and z. i found these great" NOOOO It was a straight out assumption that i was wrong in what ever i was doing and i must need to be told what i SHOULD be doing.
    It was meant to be a YAY post, sharing some good training and being proud of myself and my dog. But alas a "know it all" HAD to shoot me down. Make me feel like a failure and belittle my abilities.
    So here i am getting over myself, thanks for your advice, i already do pretty much all of what you say. I work with him DAILY with it. I dont EVER have a day off, Im tired cranky i have a sick 2 yr old, and 11 month old who is currently losing weight as my milk supply has dwindled from lack of sleep and a 5 yr old who is exhausted from Preprimary and kicking up a stink at every turn. Yet who the **** is up to 12 at night getting everything done because my husband works away, me!
    So when something went well i post it here, saying YAY things are going great, NOT Ive mastered the art of training and im perfect. So shoot me for wanting a pat on the back!
    SOOO many people here talk down to new members. So i stick up for myself and my training, and look what happens.

    The people I'm learning from on to train dog would find the fact that your dog ran into danger when it heard another dog - a sign of not enough training. When my dog does this, I'm mortified, not bragging about it even if she does recall. She never should have gone. For me, I'm more likely to brag if she sees the possum/other dog, but looks to me for permisson to go.

    I'm sad you don't see that.

    And I didn't see you sticking up for your training. I saw you attacking someone who was trying to be helpful. We don't want your dog to die because it ran across the road after some distraction.

    Ok, he has to start somewhere... did i say i was happy that he ran after the dog barking? I wasnt at all. I was happy that the recall worked. First time really testing it and it worked.

    This is the written word, i saw someone attacking me, everyones perception of the written word can be different. I reacted by saying, hey give the new kid a break! and Dont be so quick to judge. But to Labsrule that translated into me being a know it all... not my intention.

    Your sad because you THINK i dont see he needs more training... he is an 8 month old puppy! Of course he needs more training! HE IS AN 8 MONTH OLD PUPPY!!!!! But as a first go YAY!

    How is your training going Hyacinth? I heard you were having some problems... you cant tell me that you are not happy when you have a little win?!

    Hi,

    Unwanted/unexpected post is a part of this forum. I am sure most of us have contributed to that. Take what works for you. I must admit your op was really about sharing your YAY with doggie people like us. Keep smiling

    You've made just as many judgemental assumptions about labsrule as labsrule made about you.

    Occasionally I have a win but not enough to think my training rocks. My training is, um, mediocre compared to where I want to be.

    What you can do for extra recall practice whilst ensuring his safety, is put him on a long line (long piece of rope will do if you don't have a specific long line) and let him run out in front of you and then call come and if he comes back to you on the come command, then reward him with a treat as this will encourage him to want to come back to you for the reward. If he doesn't come back to you, you can reel him in on the long line (rope), thus ensuring your dog's safety.

    When training my youngsters in recall, I always used an excited voice to get their attention and make them want to come back to me, plus the added bonus of a treat. You can wean them off the treats by replacing the treats with lots of praise and pats and fussing and fawning over them to show them how happy you are they came back to you. The most important thing when training recall is NOT to get mad if they don't come back and start screaming at them, which is a pretty natural reaction that you normally do out of fear as you are scared they will bugger off and may run onto the road, if not restrained by a lead or long line. Always make them want to come back to you, not to be scared to come back.

    Once you have perfected the recall using the long lead and you are pretty confident with his recall, then you can start testing his recall without the long line, but make sure you do this in an enclosed area or an area that is not close to roads or too many distractions for starters. As his recall improves, you can then practice in areas where there are distractions.

    Many people struggle with recalls with their dogs and don't perservere or even try recall training them if the dog thumbs their nose at the owner and continues on its merry way bouding up the street or thru a park.

    Training your dog to have a good reliable recall, can literally save its life one day, so its great you have begun practicing recall with your dog and keep at it, but ensure you dog is attached to a long line for his safety and your peace of mind, until he has a reliable recall.
    I just did a search on the forum to see if I could get some advice on recall, and found it, thank you Labsrule.
