I don't have the expierience you have. I'm also alone except for husband. I have no one to help me or support me. My mother lives states away.

I don't have a mother, and my husband was at work all day. Experience? There was a first you know (and none of them lived with me, and their parents were all over the map discipline wise)! Throwing food is not an appropriate activity. That doesn't mean I expect that every toddler will be a neat eater. But fallen food from learning to feed one's self, is not the same as being a brat and throwing food, especially when told to stop.
I have a feeling that your same lack of understanding of setting limits for your child, is the same as your failure with dogs. They're really very similar, and if you can't manage one, it's unlikely you'll manage the other.

Filtering out the name calling and crude remarks were difficult but I did appreciate the elements of value and have, in fact, been using them.
Jackass.

Oh, expletives, the soul of wit and sign of intellect. Perhaps if you enriched your vocabulary people would find you more credible.

Hmmm. On the one hand we've got an experienced professional dog trainer with extensive experience working with a variety of dogs and who's familiar with a variety of techniques and approaches, and on the other we've got a guy with virtually no experience who's trying to physically force dogs into dog houses to get them in out of the rain. Hmmm. I wonder which one's more credible? Hmm.

Educated professionals don't use expletives.

I missed something. Who has physically tried to force a dog into a dog house? You wouldn't need any advice to do that.

Funny! I think at this point that it's rather obviously the case that you've never actually met one.
I have no idea what you actually look like but I think it's reasonable to guess that you've got a "What's that smell?" expression permanently plastered across your doughy mug.

Wait a minute, weren't you the first person to use the C*** word?

Tara in fact is a professional dog trainer. Dog trainers generally do not have PHD'S.. they have dog savvy. We aren't talking about rocket scientists, or Nobel Peace Prize winners. We are talking about DOG trainers. Who do not have to be Eddykated... they only need to have dog savvy.

Tell no one what you are about too see. It should never have been attempted by humans in the first place.

That might just be the biggest load of crap I've seen here, and that's saying a lot. I am an educated professional, I work with educated professionals all day, and most of my friends are also educated professionals. Many of us cuss like sailors.
"Jackass" is tame. Also, it's use was quite appropriate.
