She jumps up, gravity brings her down automagikally. Therefore, prefect recoil.

All I said was "you could ALSO find a PR based trainer, blah blah blah". It didn't OR, or INSTEAD OF.

if that's what you'd actually said, i doubt it would've been an issue.

That is all I said, you can go back and read it.
How do you prepose I killfile on Google? I see all the posts, doesn't mean I read them.

of course you can't killfile in Google. that doesn't mean you have to read his posts, which is what "I have to wad through his posts..." seems to indicate. you don't have to read anything you don't want to. if you want to read and respond to his posts, fine, but that's not Google's fault.
Who crawled up your *** and died?

the "i have to respond to Jack, even though i don't want to" schtick is more than a little irritating. either play with him or don't, but blaming your inability to ignore him on the "fact" that you have to read his posts is ***.

the s33kr1t is to find one who refuses to go more than 20 feet away from you. HTH!

Can't believe all these smart people hadn't figured it out. Get a dog with SA. Don't worry about the breed, 'cause if they can't see mommy rightthisminute, they'll just die.
You should see poor Pan when we're out on hikes. I'm the weakest link, and often lag behind. She's in a real quandry, 'cause she likes to keep track of both Khan and me, and gets that 'Hurry up, they're getting away!' look on her face. Yes, she'll run back and forth between us if she has to.
I played a real mean trick on her once and hid in the shrubs, maybe 10 ft. away from the trail. She'd run back a little, and run forward. Then run back a whole lot more, and run forwad again, .. Eventually, I felt sorry for her and stood up. That, and the whining was making it sound like there was a small plane with engine trouble running along the trail.
it's funny. i spent a lot of time worrying about keeping elliott's attention and reinforcing his recall and leash manners. harriet was usually along for the ride, so she became untrustworthy by association.

That's a bit like Pan. Because of the need to watch Khan closely, she gets shortchanged. I should mention, however, that The Bad Seed is a rotten influence on her. She'll recall to me immediately no matter what, but will ignore Rajesh if Khan's around, opting to take her cues from him instead.
that, they do. they even crinkle up their eyes.

It's cool that she has her smile back.

exactly. inside the house, all bets are off, but as soon as we're out the door, she's stuck to me like a cockle burr.

harriet's like that, as well. elliott got out of the yard a few times, and though harriet was right behind him, she chickened out and came straight back inside to tattle on him.

meanypants. did you laugh at her?

that's because Rajesh is not As Good As you. HTH!

she's still pathetic, but that's nothing new. Boxers are very good at Pathetic. but she's pretty much back to normal. she's also, i think, starting to see that there are perks to being an only dog. if i'm not careful, she's going to be so spoiled that even i won't be able to stand her.

Well, then I suggest you got back to reading 101. Here is exactly what I said, note the word ALSO, rather than OR or INSTEAD OF..
Or find a good e-collar trainer and use that. I do long line work first, then I introduce the e-collar ... gotten since I started using the e-collar have been so incredible that I'd hesitate to proof off-leash recalls without one.

You can also find a good PR based trainer, my dogs recalls are incredible, and I've never used an electric collar.
And where the hell did I say "I don't want to read Jacks posts"

my mistake. i thought you were referring to him, not Jerry.
I said I can't help but read them, meaning they amuse me.

well, that certainly explains a lot.
Chill out already.

nice. on the ick-o-meter, that's right up there with telling people to shut up. but that shouldn't surprise me, as you find "jokes" about strap-ons irresistibly, um, amusing. all three are, i think, inherently violent, controlling, and dehumanizing. way to go!

if that had been the entirety of your response, there would have been nothing noteworthy about it.
