Re: Wheels, Runners, Herding Dog!!

Re: Clicker training for being quiet?

Thank you so MUCH, Horace's Mum, this is GREAT!! I couldn't figure out how to approach it on my own, and this is much more specific than just here and there when she happens to be quiet (and there is likely nothing to bark at)!

She's basically well-behaved, soft, and get's plenty of excercise and mental stimulation as I'm retired and able to spend a good amount of time walking, training and playing with her and aware that being a Sheltie, and a herding ...

"All Dogs Come" Episode?

It's been awhile since I saw the episode I'm asking about, so I don't remember the specific breeds or some other details, but there was an episode where one issue was that the middle-aged couple's 3 small dogs, I think of different breeds, would bark excitedly - and loudly - in the window, at dogs o...
