    Now reading [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1580622038/002-4893021-4576855?v=glance&n=283155"]The Dog Whisperer[/ame]. Tis all about nonviolent training. This new pup of mine is smaller than the ones I had in the past and is very anti choke collar. She really freaked out.

    The book has a lot of new age lovethyneighbor stuff in it. But the training techniques seem to work very well. I wish the psychology was less than half the book. Check it out from the library if they got it.

    Been busy lately. Like I mentioned, I got me a new pup and forgot just how much like an infant they are. Her name is Sadie and she's a Blue Heeler / Beagle mix. Rescued her from the midst of a buncha hoity toity purebreds.

    At ten weeks (got her at seven) she is progressing good in training. Almost housebroken (no incidents in two whole days) and we are working on basic skills while playing.

    Dolly (that would be the Lady of the House) is a cat person but has taken to Sadie quite well. The cats, now that is another story. The Eldest has officially chased her young butt out of the kids room (aka the cats domain) with stern hisses and much showing of claws.

    The pics are at Webshots

    For some reason I cannot seem to link to individual pics today. Must be a blond moment.

    Phillip E. Gwinn

    I am a simple person. Anyone who steals my identity gets a boring life, until I find them. I tried the handles like SooperStud10654 back in the internet early daze and got bored with it. Besides, imagine the fun when some knucklehead challenges you to "post that crap with your real name". Then you can laugh and say, "at your leisure". Normally they don't post again.

    The Dog Whisperer kicks @$$. I watch his show all the time. Just remember, calm assertive energy.

    What a cutie! You can definetly see beagle traits! :D

    I have a beagle and, they're not easy to train. All that stuff about "pack leader" and "telling them what to do" was a must with this guy. I used to poo-poo that type of advise since I had easily trained dogs in the past. Even crate training was something that I thought was mean and unnecessary. NOT WITH THIS GUY!

    Our cat hates him too and has tried to kill him several times. I uncovered her Acme beagle killer the other day, so he's safe for now.
