Thread: Dog Trained!

    Look Mason, I've always said that it's great that you're seeking advice...and I think that you have recieved some brilliant advice, links, names, etc. here.

    But i've seen you put too much blame on this pup, and i hate to see that you yell, scream in his face, hit and i'm pretty sure you said in a previous post tie up the pup. Sorry ! That's not on ! No trainer, website or anyone here would have told you that that's part of training.

    I 100% agree with Mags. Under no circumstances should you hit a dog. No wonder your pup is agressive!

    Actually I think Mason is a grade A brat.

    "Give me a solution to training my dog - make it quick and easy"

    When no one could give you that - you said

    "The dog is nuts and we are getting rid of it"

    More advice

    "Dog bit my sister - we are getting rid of it"

    More advice

    "We are getting A trainer in - one session and the dog is trained"

    Warnings

    "Dog is trained - perfect"

    congrats and no comments from some

    "Dog is crap - doesn't do what we say - we are getting rid of it"

    stop crying wolf - either make a committment to training your dog or rehome him and give him the life he deserves - one without being hit, tied up and yelled at and one where he is not expected to be perfect from day 1.

    Ask your parents if they believe shaking babies makes them cry less...

    1. I hope you come back here for your puppys sake. Like I said before there's so many people here willing to help and give advice...You just have to take it Mason.
    2. Yes, well done for spending $400...but as you can see, you'll have to spend more...it's all part of owning a dog. I could probably buy a house (or few) with the money I've spent on my dogs over the years...and I'd do it all again & again...
    3. Commitment? yes but only partly, but only you know what else you've done or tried so feel free to explain.

    So like the little kid you are you are cracking the shits. Throwing money at a problem doesn't work. That $400 could have gone to 10 private lessons with a trainer - they could have paid for training and transport to a local dog club.

    Leave or don't - I simply hope your dog doesn't become another statistic. I apologise to other members - I realise you have been patient for the sake of the dog - but after spending most of the last week at the vets and dealing with ********s who want to dump their "problems" on me (the more I retire the more people want me) I have no tolerance for idiots.

    Mason mate - one of my school kids lost his dad in a car accident last week. He was back at school this week holding it together pretty damn well. he has to be the man of the house now along with his brother - and look after his sick wheelchair bound mother. Those boys are 15 and 17 - they've been through so much in their lives. Grow up and start acting responsibly - having a whinge on a forum does not constitute responsibility.

    You can't expect a dog to pick up every command in one $400 lesson! I paid $70 for a 12week basic beginners obediance class.

    I then spent a further $70 on the second stage of a 12 week training schedule. Dogs take time, patience and money.

    Do the dog a favour a give it to a loving and caring home where it is going to get the proper treatment and care that poor pup deserves.

    When the day comes and you have a child, I sincerely hope you do not spend $400 on lessons on how to look after it.

    I agree with everything that Occy said! (a 1st isn't it?) Ally is right also.
    I'm losing my patience and getting sick of repeating myself. You're not here for advice. You just want to whinge...and people are sick of it now. I feel sorry for your little pup, taken from it's mum and litter mates at such young age, living in a backyard on his own, being yelled at, hit...and now people expecting him to be trained in 1 session. GET REAL MASON ! I've been patient hoping to convince you to the right thing, persist with training and treat the pup nicely because my heart breaks for this little guy, but it seems like you're always the victim...well I think this little puppy's the victim and deserves better! I hope that you decide to re home him with people that will give him the love and care that he deserves.

    Just ask yourself Mason, did you know everything when you were born? Wnen you were 2, 3, 5... do you know a lot now? I guess not. A dog is NOT a toy, so you buy a 400 $ chip and plant it in so he learns everything for life. Dog is a constant work. For life. And it's hard at the beginning. Just like it was hard for your parents, and they had to clean your mess and cope with your tantrums and crap. Not YOUR parents, for that matter, everyone's parents. So imagine yourself and your family as parents to your dog, have patience. Or don't have patience and don't have a dog at all because all this is too bloody hard and you're either not ready or cut for it. Beating and yelling never worked for anyone, and certanly wont' for your dog.

    Come on guys.

    I understand the frustration, but how is this helping the dog??

    Mason is 16 years old, and has to abide by his parents rules and decisions. I grew up with a VERY strict Father, perhaps that is why i can understand Mason's position.

    You need to remember he has sought out a dog forum for advice which is a positive step for the puppy. He has managed to get permission for training from his parents who didnt really agree. And he is communicating!

    Not everyone 'gets' responsible dog ownership. Not everyone understands the issues. If they did there would be NO dogs in pounds and shelters!!!

    There is NO education out there. No one knows the reality, or what their choices create.

    I get incredibly frustrated and angry at times with people who do the wrong thing, and have expressed this on this forum more than once.

    I see the worst of the worst at times. I spend hours bathing and clipping dogs who are litterally alive with fleas and miserable only to see their owner come and collect them!! If you tear shreds off them you loose them. If you spend some time sharing concern and information they MIGHT listen! and all the while you want to kick them up the backside.

    What you need to remember is that this thread is a lifeline for this puppy, i would not at all be suprised if it is now severed.

    I hope Mason has gained some knowledge here, and that he uses that to the very best of his ability for this sweet little puppy who is facing many risk factors.

    My offer of pming me Mason is here ok.

    Nic
