    Is it a fault if you avoid vacuuming because the dog likes to help?

    I'd like my dog to have pointy up ears... but it's my fault I didn't know about taping until it was way too late though I sometimes think about trying botox and then kick myself for being so vain about it. Though she'd be safer in Victoria if she had pointy up ears.

    "i have had other dogs, so knowing how to train is not a problem but my last two dogs which are both cavaliers, just do not come when called unless I have a treat in hand. My Lexie seems to know if there is treat is on offer or not.


    But she is such a sweet heart and is a good girl, just not obedient."

    Sonya this must be a cavalier thing my Maxi is exactly like this also knows if there is a treat or not... Too smart for his own good... Would not trade him for the world, as he is my rock and best mate...

    RE; BANJO [/I]And she will still jump up like a compete lunatic when a stranger says hello to her.[I]

    Oh yes, I have one of these too. Miss Ginny AKA Ginger Meggs.
    I put it down to the Staffy side - being the hindquarters built specifically for jumping.
    The upside is she is an excellent mouser - even more efficient than the Cat.
    She has 5 kills to her trophy cabinet so far.

    She does have a high level of obedience which I attribute to the ACD/Kelpie side, along with
    the pretty pricked ears and an eye patch. I can drop her in "panic down" mode even in full flight.

    So wish I could do this with Snoopy but it takes so long - first we have to negotiate the terms
    of the drop," hmm, why? are you sure? do a get cheese? ok, I'll just do it for a kiss "
    then he has to organise the long legs similar to a giraffe drinking.

    Obedience * makes life more pleasant for everyone
    * will SAVE your Dogs life one day

    An untrained dog is at risk of getting run over, baited or shot by angry
    neighbours or killed by a bigger dog for having bad manners.

    As KM said, Leave it, Drop it, essential especially for us QLDers with
    the cane toads and other nasties.

    I just teach them stuff while playing games, which sometimes runs into
    3 plus hours a day.

    And that's why a certain evil hound does not get off lead time in QLD. Sigh.

    Lol Chubbsecurity. I always blame the staffy genes too. But the kelpie makes her easy to train and eager to please indeed.
