The catbox doesn't bother me much. Neither does scooping poop in the backyard.

Petsitting is one place where the dog is "harder", while the cats are "easier". They all require a petsitter when we are away, but the cats just need somebody to stop in once or twice a day to feed them, whereas Morgan needs somebody to actually keep him in their home.

On the flip side, I find that the cars are "harder" to entertain, while Morgan is "easier". Morgan is happy to do what we do. However, if we don't get enough playtime in with the cats they destroy things like showers and cast-iron skillet pans.

Soo... yeah... it's all a matter of perspective. LOL


ETA: I merely posted to answer the OP, and didn't see that there were already 12 pages of responses here. Needless to say, I haven't read any of it yet. Whoops!
I hate when I have to entertain cars, IT'S SO HARD.

I think I have stated over and over that positive reinforcement only simply did not work.

Actually I think quoting out of context looks more like this:

Quote:
have you tried smacking
Quote:
it is really bad advice
Quote:
I hit/spank my dogs
Quote:
the whole "OMG YOU SHOULD NEVAR HIT YOUR DOG EVARRRR YOU'RE A HORRIBLE PERSON IF YOU DO" is ridiculous
Quote:
But I do smack their noses
Quote:
I smack to show bad behavior
Quote:
I pop his nose
Quote:
He only pays attention to me when I pop him
Quote:
just pop him and expect him to know what I mean.
Quote:
this is not the only scenario that I have to use physical correction
Quote:
disagree with the whole "hitting is abuse"
Quote:
I am against positive training
Quote:
the dog I pop on the nose and the dog I hit with the leash are two completely different dogs
Quote:
The hitting with the leash wasn't really a form of training,


On a side note at the end of the thread I saw where I was told to watch Best in Show and had completely forgotten about it! I guess I still need to hunt it down >.<

See I know that a lot of people disagree but for my cars I have to SEE there is something wrong... I'm really bad with thinking I can fix it myself.
