    There are quite a few of them at club and what they say & do to people amounts to bullying in my view, especially as they tend to form a gang & constantly & relentlessly attack the intended victim. I've seen them reduce good handlers with great dogs to tears. And then they just disappear .... Never to be seen again. I've been through it once with zena & they didn't stop me working right up until the day she died.

    It's going to be very tough this time because spirit has more potential than zena .... And she's a white. I need to impart a "don't f**k with me" attitude right from the get go this time around. I refuse to be walked over & treated like garbage by these people any longer.

    You bet I will Matey. Obedience trialling dogs with the potential to be champions in this discipline come along very rarely. I thought I'd only ever be privileged to own one in my life time. I have now been blessed with a second one. I owe it to Zena to take the life lessons she taught me and go right through all the titles available with Spirit.

    I didn't have this forum to chat on when I was going through this before. You all give me strength whereas before my self doubt just about ruined me because I had very few people to bounce ideas around with & get things off my chest when they happened. You're good mates in my opinion.

    Jeez, what's wrong with these ppl, GSD's. Haven't they got anything better to do?

    Tell them how it's gonna be with you, don't take any crap. Bullies are cowards, after all IMO.

    let us know how you go.

    I think writing a ltter and trying to go down that avenue is probably the best port of call FIRST. If that doesn't work, well at least you tried that option IYKWIM?

    The feeling is VERY mutual GSD's. I'm sure there's not a person here who doesn't think so, either.

    Not sure DA. You'd think they'd be rapped that club has a good dog out there representing them.

    Yep, I'm not going to just shut up, smile nicely & take whatever they throw at me this time. I've had enough.

    I sure will. My experience may help some other person in a difficult situation.

    Yes, I think writing it all down is better than me getting emotional & just blurting stuff out. Men don't cope with that sort of behaviour very well. If I give him the facts, he'll be able to deal with it properly. If he chooses not to do anything about it .... I will.

    I personally think the way you are planning on going about this is spot on, GSD's.

    True, men don't take kindly to dealing with emotional females. I'm female, and I don't deal with that well, either, come to think of it. Facts are facts and can't be ignored. Especially if they are given in a...well...cold, hard straightforward manner.

    Then if nothing happens, I'd discuss the situation with the ppl who have this attitude. If discussion got me no-where, well...I'm sure you can guess my form of anger management. Lol.

    I have an important slogan that I try to live by GSD's. It does not make life easy, but it makes it easy to live with myself and my conscience.

    WHAT WE PERMIT - WE PROMOTE.

    Ta. I'm writing the letter as we speak. It's very factual but with a very strong "tone" to it. Better to take time out from the treats until it's done. Once it's finished, my head will be clear & I can concentrate on work again.

    I learned to do this when I spent 3 years preparing a case for the Supreme court over the way my *cough, cough* "Father" embezelled my Grandmother's money while he was Power of Attorney & she was in the nursing home. He got screwed by the will when he didn't adhere to the conditions & wanted what was allocated to the Grand children (us) because he thought he was entitled to it as her "only loving son". My Brother & Sister were too gutless to help me with the research and didn't show up in court when they were clearly available to do so, but had their hands out for their share when I won the case.

    Don't worry M'Dear. If the Pres won't do anything, I will tell them to "go to hell in such a manner that not only do they enjoy the ride, but pay for the priviledge." You can only push Miss Lynn so far ....

    Very true DA. A bit like "Silence is assent" and a Dr Philism, "You teach people how to treat you."
