Hey guys.. in the past month I have done a lot of research on how to properly train your dog/pup. Many people think that training your dog is easy, it is not, and it requires a ton of work. I have made a blog dedicated to teach you how to train you dog/pup..

I hope it helps!

A whole month!! Wow.
Anyway, I expect this clown isn't sticking around to actually read/participate in rec.pets.dogs.behavior, but in case he is or one of his fellow whatevers is - how did you all find rec.pets.dogs.behavior, and what gave you the notion to promote your blog here? Did someone suggest it to you?

Yes, a whole month. I know how to do the basics, but I wanted to know how to do EVERYTHING, such as to stop chewing, and the other little habits they have. Yes, I will be here to stay, and I am not a clown. Emotion: smile

That remains to be seen, frankly. Your entrance was something less than auspicious. This is a place for dialogue. Well, it used to be.
Anyway, who suggested that it was a good idea to advertise your blog here?

I posted a comment in your blog. I am the first! I see you also have a blog on WOW (World of Warcraft?). There's a war going on right here! I'm not into games, but I don't criticize or belittle anyone unless they have triggered my "opposition reflex" by a snide remark or nasty comment.

I urge you to stay and not be scared away by the cadre of regulars who stroke each others' egos and attempt to inflate their own by intimidation. This is also how many train their dogs. So, thanks for visiting, and I hope you can keep a thick skin and let us know about your puppy training adventures.

Hey - new dude: see if you can help Paul train his dog. He's having a FEW PROBLEMS.
And pass the popcorn.

Wow. You're, like, really impressive. You learned EVERYTHING in a whole month!
Since you know everything about dog training, I'm having a few issues I'm sure you can help me with.
Cala's contacts are mostly good but she tends to deterioriate on the dogwalk, sometimes coming into the down a foot or so beyond the plank, and I need to fix that.
Speaking of which, what contact behavior would you recommend for Zipper? He's a 10# dog, handler compliant but of square body type.

Cala's ducking back behind me just a bit on some sits in heel. She also tends to sit just a bit crooked in front. I clicker train and don't use physical props.
Thanks in advance for your answers, I'm SURE you'll know EXACTLY what to do because you know EVERYTHING.
