  1. Australian Working Dogs Survey

    Great to see the ol fella working some handy dogs!!!! I was very dissapointed at many stements from the guy from the Uni!!!He needs to get out with somebody like the ol fella and actually learn something about dogs!!! Tony
  2. What Is Your Best Piece Of Advice?

    Give the dog what he or she needs, not what you think he or she wants. The basic needs of a dog are shelter,food,water,stimulation and good leadership. One of the basic needs of a dog that so many overlook or fail to satisfy is to treat and allow the dog to be a Dog. Tony
  3. Its drive training for gundogs. The Dog learns acess to prey drive is through the Handler. The dog learns in this manner much better as instinct is used. Tony

    How old is this dog and what"s her breeding? Tony
  5. How To Buy A Purebred Pup

    PF, a code of ethics is not worth the paper its written on.We see example after example where a code is simply ignored. Tony
  6. Puppy Eating Own Poop

    I would be looking at whether the dog is bored, has a deficieny in diet or is learned behaviour. Tony

    My dogs get all excited when they hear the Foxtrot. Tony
  8. Why Is Balance So Good?

    As usual, a question has been asked.People reply and the poster replies in a totally unbalanced manner. Tony
  9. Erny, how do you the person sending the info is on the level?I am always careful about origins of some information. Tony
  10. Why Is Balance So Good?

    First and most important of all, the Human must have balance. tony
  11. Stitch, if that so called trainer is that stupid I would be giving him or her a big miss. You did mention though it is a franchise. Tony
  12. quote from Nekhbet And no, I would never purchase a primarily show line dog with the hope it would be a worker. You want a worker you buy from proven workers not just because it is a gsd, rottie, dobe etc. Many members of working breeds cannot step up to the plate anymore and that's a fact. If you want a dog that will DEFINATELY protect you in any situation you buy a trained dog or one of the more primitive/LGD breeds still from proven workers (But as lilli said dont expect to have control like you would the more traditional guarding breeds). The logic is not that hard to grasp. Exactly!!!!! Tony
  13. The average pet owner would learn alot from this type of session.The awareness and knowledge the pet owner gained would not only give them a great insight into this aspect of the dog world, but also enrich the relationship between pet owner and pet. Jeff is doing this to raise awareness and educate, not for any form of amusement. Jeff has the experience to know how far he could go with each individual dog, before bringing on so called stress. Tony
  14. Akayla, it would be a great experience as one would learn a lot from Jeff. Tony
