no one actually commented on the effectiveness of using audio ... just return it if he doesn't care about the noise.

It really didn't sound to me like it was necessary for the Mau-man. That's why I was making suggestions for other ways to handle his acting up. My approach would be a return to basics and a high level of consistency.

good point. I guess I will beef up the basics and hopefully that will help out. thanks!
Ummm... All the noise is is a pager - it's a cue, not a correction. The vibration collars are the ... them or are inclined to ignore them) is not a substitute for a solid foundation in obedience. Hope this helps...

yes it does, thanks. I am trying to find another class for Maui and I to go to. I loved our first one and was sad when it ended. In the meantime, I will work on the basics and when I have the classes, I can talk to them about using the different collars as tools when appropriate. thanks again
On an unrelated topic, my brother brought a new puppy ... little ball of fire is too fiesty to be Molly.

We will be needing peectures.

ok, as promised, here are the pictures. it is hard to get a good one of her face but I took a bunch and hoped for the best. she really is cute and the pictures don't do her justice.

yes, Maui just loves her. My brother said, "you should keep this dog..and I'll take Maui." I said, "you can leave her but Maui stays too" He didn't like that deal.
anyone have any idea what breed she is? my brother says part scotty, maybe part poodle, and some long haired terrier of sorts but we aren't sure. Her mom was around 20 lbs so they say she'll get about that size too. She is only about 2-3 lbs now and 11-12 weeks
Yeah, maybe the dog ought to learn to stay out of them, but I prefer to pick my battles, and just closing the doors made it a non-issue for my dogs.

Exactly. I mean, you could time trying to teach your dog that he's not to get into the trash, and he may learn not to, WITH YOU THERE. But when he's alone, it's a different story. Nothing bad happens when he is by himself, he gets into the trash and thats fun and a huge reward. When you are there he gets corrected. Simple deduction for the dog to only get into the trash when you are not there Emotion: smile So yeah, pick your battles, my dogs don't have garabage can issues either as I manage Emotion: smile

I pulled out the spray bottle of cold water again. Buy, I forgot how much he learns from that. One quick spray after an ignored command and he's behaving better again already!

Sometimes they just seem to need a reminder course in what the rules are!
