Re: Has anyone used a DAP Diffuser?

What's in a DAP diffuser? Ninja just hates the crate, I can't even get him toput his head in it. I might give it a shot, the diffuser while I'm trying to work with him to accept it more. I think it's gonna take awhile with him though. Good luck with SA, Toby (our 15yr old) had bad SA---we got a cat ...

Re: It's Me or the Dog

I love the training, I always wondered how to get a dog to sit or lay down without touching it. The whole idea of him doing it on his own and then adding the command is amazing. I am amazed at how fast Ninja has been picking everything up---no clicker, he's happy to get praised with love n petting n...

Re: Happy to be held but afraid to & runs from hands

Thanks for replies---I do appreciate it. I watched the video & Ninja is sort of in the realm, I'm learning he really craves attention but he previous owner probably didn't have many good experiences for him. If I sit on the floor or even lay on the floor he's not afraid. I'm trying to not make him f...

Happy to be held but afraid to & runs from hands

Re: So happy he WILL poo!

Thanks for the advice... Michael (my husband) has NO problems with him, but I'm working with Ninja on training more than he. I'm thinking Ninja really likes the mental stimulation from me. The training and attention he gets is fun I guess. Tomorrow, we work on training and walking more. He FINALLY g...

So happy he WILL poo!

Haha! First behavior I'd like to change! Lil Ninja POOPS when he's over excited (happy, anxious, worried etc :( ) Today, hubby is home with a summer cold so I let everybody out to go, they come back in after 1/2 hour. They RUN into our bedroom where they know I am & Toby and Ellie say "hey mom!" and...
