I just had to start a new thread on this. I know some of you watched the Dog Whisperer marathon over the holidays. I was so impressed with his techniques I decided to implement them in our pack (one 4 yr old Rottn girl, one 11 yr old Whiner-amer, and one speckled Dingo). Even tho I do AKC and German style obedience with my Rottn girl, she still needs to have better manners inside the house. So DH and I became the calm pack leaders *every day*. We made our couch an "invite only" zone when we are sitting on it. In/out privileges are on our terms. And walks are once again CALM. When I take my Rottie for a jog around the park there are houses with fenced yards and dogs that GO CRAZY when we go by. Using Cesar's techniques we are now able to walk past these yards in total peace and quiet!!!
