Hi Everybuddy -
All this obedience stuff has my Mom thinkin. When she thinks, that's never a good thing! Now she wants to try to get us to walk nicely on lead. YEAH RIGHT! Apparently the obedience instructor pointed out some training options to her after class. Oh great. So now, she's inspired. This morning she went online to see other things that might work. Look what she found:
Okay, let's take a closer look at this. This products says it's a "STUBBORN DOG SYSTEM". Look what's on the box! I'm not sure I like this! In my opinion, stubbornness is a sign of intelligence. Why should we get zapped for that? We're free thinkers. We do what's right (most of the time)! Perhaps whomever designed this box needs to do some breed research. How about putting a Lab's picture on that box? I've seen Labs gaze under the sofa for quite some time waiting for the ball to roll back out. That's "stubborn" isn't it? Or how about the dog next door that barked for hours at the new photograph of his boy in a cap and gown? That's stubborn right? And I've never met a cat that's not stubborn. I think this box should have a cat's picture on it. I believe this is discrimination! HARRRMPH! For the record, she's not considering what's in this box. She said we don't have a "need" for that. I just had to share my opinion on what I saw.
Anywoo, this leads me to the original purpose of my post. Check out the poll Mom has added to the sidebar. She thinks this will help her decide which training tool to use. (Pssst......click "other". It'll completely throw her off!)
All this thinkin makes my head spin.
