I'm sure the site will be flooded with requests! But, I've learned so much from IMOTD that I don't think we would qualify. :0) Best wishes to those that apply.

I am in no position to offer insight about growling. This is not an issue that I have had. BUT, getting into the trash... I have had that problem (twice now). This will sound very silly: **Reprimand the trash can.** When I would catch Tiger in the can, I worked on "leave it" and "give" commands. Onc...

You're not alone! I try to stay clear when they are playing chase in the yard. But apparently they think I am the "base" and sometimes can't slow down enough to stop or run around before they get to me. TAG, I'M IT! Two 40-pound dogs running at full tilt tends to leave a bruise or two. My newest inj...

Tiger used to be afraid of EVERYTHING. It took a lot of socialization to make her realize that she was safe, and I wouldn't let anything bad happen to her. The thing is that you must do everything in little, baby steps . 1. To your first question... I agree with Mattie. Just keep taking her out, eve...

It was interesting that the judge was so impatient. I wonder how well trained HIS dogs are. I love that the mom is using dogs with her son. My brother had some serious behaviorial problems, and getting a dog really helped. Bud (a lab/golden mix) was a loyal friend and helper to a kid who didn't have...

I was sure she spent some time observing, then some time training. But, in 30 minutes, it all looks like miracle work! Thanks for satisfying my curiosity. On a personal note: I was REALLY lucky with Tiger, she was eager to learn. I'm starting over, and looking for my own bad behaviors, with the new ...

Swimming is great exercise, and I'm sure you can find a good floating toy for the pup to chase into the water. I saw some life jackets at Petsmart recently. I wish I could tell you about their efficacy, but Tiger won't go near the water! I'm sure its like looking for human life jackets, look for coa...

How long to film an episode?

After all the work and editing, IMOTD is a 30 minute episode. But, in reality, even teaching the simplest things take some time. I was just curious how long Victoria is able to spend with the family for each episode? As it is, the show makes it all look so easy (which lends credence to the belief th...

Training "Side Effect"

I really like how positive reinforcement training works. I love telling my dogs, "Good Doggies." When Solo first came home with us, he wanted to chew on EVERYTHING. When I would catch him chewing on something inappropriate, I would switch it for something that was his. He really liked the squeaky to...

Thanks so much for your perspective. I never thought about her teaching him . She has always been a back of the pack kinda gal, and he's almost as big as she is. She's told him off a few times, but mostly she'll let him spend the day begging her to play. It is always rewarding when she decides "okay...

My apologies... my head was moving faster than my fingers. I left out the part of the thought where I meant to say, "Get a book." This is a great place to ask questions when you don't understand something in the book. And, I meant this is a good place to start, because it's really easy to find Victo...

Working with shelter dogs is like working at kinder-care... they all have their own little quirks & personalities, and the best thing you can give them is your time and patience. Good for you for choosing to volunteer!!! Advice? Do what you can to give each of those animals a positive environment......

I have a ABC x XYZ x LMNOP... :P I'm new here. I'm still learning a lot about "dog world." So please humor me with some explanations... What do all these breed abbreviations mean? JRT...
