this thread isn't about the well known K9 robot dog from early Dr Who episodes I grew up with, but rather about dog training. A little back story here:
at my local off leash dog park there is a certified dog trainer that takes her poodle and fluffy dog along. She is a nice person and happy to dispense training advice. But I noticed one thing about her method and that is her dogs were extremely well behaved. These dogs weren't allowed to play with the other dogs and they were chastised for attempting to do so. She even told me that Serena shouldn't run with other dogs because she will learn to rough play and become unruly. Is there such a thing as too much training? I myself would be sad if Serena wasn't allowed to play and run around with other dogs. Isn't that the point of off-leash parks?
