Re: Victoria's Acceptance Speech

Susan Garrett online e-course

I get the newsletter from Just Say Yes and recently this landed in my email box: Happy Saint Paddy Everyone! As many of you may know last summer I ran my first on-line training class. I thought it was great success but I guess I really didn't realize the full impact of this e-course until just this ...

Re: Episode 203 - Great Dane Devotion - Jan 16

Hello Victoria, This is Josh from the show. I just found this website today and I wanted to update you on our status. First off, thank you again for working with us.

Re: To crate or not to crate? --that is the question!

We used an actual crate for maybe 2-3 weeks. He outgrew the small one we had very quickly! We bought a doggie playpen to use in its place. Its a bigger area than a crate. Sulley spent the first few weeks hanging out in the kitchen anyway. That was his choice of place to be. We're pretty sure he didn...

Did the show get moved to a diff day? (US)

I noticed that the next few saturdays in the IMOTD time slot is a different show for the next few weeks. What's going on? There's only been 5 episodes for season three so far, and I remember Victoria posting on FB about shooting 10 episodes.

Re: I have taken the plunge

I had to look this up because I had never heard of it. I found several vids of the dogs pulling from the front, then I found this one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gnh7qNCSGw&feature=player_embedded I can't wait to hear how this works out for you. I think my kids would love this when Sulley is ol...

Re: How do I teach a proper greet?

Teach him what it is you want him to do first with just yourself, and in a variety of locations - so if you want him to sit when greeting people, make it routine and habit that he sits before any interaction, no matter where he is. Then bring in 1 family member, 2 etc, in the particular locations h...

Re: How do I teach a proper greet?

Then you can work with him on the other things, such as teaching him the behaviour you wnt to greet people wtih, away from people (always helps to have that crystal clear and sh!t hot first! in a variaty of locations too!), and teach him 'people are borrrrrrrrrrrrring, i am fun' in locations such a...

Re: How do I teach a proper greet?

Thanks so much for your input! We have not taught him to go to a specific place at the door, we need to do that! I think that will be a great first step towards visitors to the house. I totally understand what you're saying about the outside training and getting closer and closer as he shows he can ...

How do I teach a proper greet?

While I think its nice that Sulley absolutely loves to meet new people and other new dogs, I really dislike his over the top enthusiasm. I was hoping that as he matured (8 mos now) he would calm a bit with it but he is just getting worse and worse. We do take him out to places, but I have to admit p...

Re: Treating Skin Allergies in Dogs

Thanks for the info Nettle. I looked it up and it turns out there is a holistic vet not too far from us. I think we'll give her a try. Poor guy has had this itch problem since we got him. Sometimes its barely there and others we have to resort to the e-collar so he doesn't tear himself up. The curre...
