    Silvershadow, maybe take your own advice. If you don't like what is said, don't even read it or report it.

    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    Sometimes people need to hear what their attitude is doing to this place =)

    We've been trying to correct this issue by yanking back on his lead when he does this. We figured that as this makes him cough he will remember not to pull hard on his lead when out for walks.
    You are jerking the chain.

    FFS.

    Punishing the dog will not teach it what you want it to do. You have to make it very easy for the dog to do you want him to do - and reward that. Punishing him will not let him know what you want instead and he may make the wrong connection between the punishment and what to do instead. Ie what he does instead to avoid the punishment will probably not be what you want either.

    Read this link - all of it. Watch the training videos.
    Digital Dog Training Textbook | Dog Star Daily

    Also read all the stuff here.
    Dog Behaviour Articles FREE! K9 Pro The K9 Professionals
    and after you're done with that page - go to the training articles and read that stuff.

    Are you still allowing the dog to wander where ever he feels like or have you built a proper run for him?

    I still think you should trade the dog in for a goldfish.

    Interestingly silvershadow you jump all over me with attitude and yet you 'agree' with several posts, including the one above that starts with something along the lines of jerking the chain. Hypocritical much? As I said, take your own advice and either report me or get over it.

    Just because I "thank" a post, doesn't mean I agree with all of it. I'm not agreeing with your thoughts about him or her either. Hardly hypocritical.

    Anne,

    Many thanks for your input in this thread. You have now successfully reduced it to a petty fight, I imagine not for the first time you have done so on this forum. While you do seem to be fairly lacking in maturity we do not wish to continue this quarrel anymore as this is not what we are here for. I know you really want to be right but the fact of the matter is Scotty is our dog and of course he is real so in your words “get over it.”

    Now that everyone knows your opinion, we would appreciate it if you could please only post comments in the best interest of Scotty.
    The only reason one would come to a forum and ask for advice is pretty self explanatory - we are seeking advice for our pup, and if you don't have any, then find another thread to tarnish with your bad attitude.

    Thanks (and now lets continue on with the topic)

    Moderator,

    This is not intended to be a 'fuel on the fire' approach; I'm simply wishing for Anne to leave this thread (and possibly the forum) to allow for simple discussions to be had with regard to our Dingo-Whippet cross, Scotty.

    Quite obviously, we've got a unique pup on our hands, and therefore we would appreciate that this thread be kept open.

    There have been plenty of people who have provided great suggestions which we have taken onboard, and we appreciate that.

    Thanks

    Feel free to private message me or use the report function rather than post in the thread. As I have said previously, if a member is annoying you and you don't wish to see the person's posts, use the ignore function.

    There are other members here who are more than happy to take you at face value and help you with training your puppy

    anyone wants to see what a kelpie x whippet looks like
    Rodney's profile at PetRescue - is he your new best friend?

    I can't understand how someone can be so articulate with the English language and think that chucking a dog's dinner on the shed will help a dog learn anything except that he is in company of people who don't play fair - and dogs only respect people who play fair not people who are unpredictable or inconsistent.

    Being articulate doesn't have anything to do with being knowledgeable about dogs. Just because it's common sense to us, doesn't mean it is to everyone else.
