Really? So when someone argues with me about what I am doing with MY dog and gives criticism, you expect me to not respond? That's not going to happen.

I expect you to be the bigger person, yes.

Then the conversation is not going to end.

FWIW, I wasn’t criticizing. Simply trying to educate.

I do it in training, and whether I communicate it correctly on here or not, I do know what I am doing and it has worked. So, if you want to tell me what I did was "wrong" when I had amazing success with it...then you go right on ahead.
She is is telling you what you did wrong and how to do it right.

I honestly don't know any reputable trainer that tells people to pop their dog on the nose or hit them with a leash. I know in your intro thread you wanted to move up to the training department at Petsmart. My friends took classes *and some still do* there and that is NOT something that is practiced or even joked about there because even saying it in joke leaves a chance that an uneducated person will go out and try it. She/he? is giving advice that you will actually be able to use if you are really wanting to go into dog training especially with a company that is known *at least around here* as a positive reinforcement ONLY training.

And in her defense I'M the one criticizing your 'training advice'. I'M the one who pointed out that you are asking someone to physically pop/hit a dog who is reactive and is already reacting to something.

Danefield has given amazing non confrontational advice. She has explained why the training methods she is saying work and why yours do not. That is in no way attacking or starting a fight unless you just cannot take legitimate advice with facts to back it up.

She is not saying anything that I already do not know. I am frustrated because what I am saying is being misinterpreted. But it doesn't really matter to me. So, this conversation is over.

Does this dog get to do something draining before walks? My 7 year old dog still gets the zoomie oomies sometimes when he's really hyper and I happen to play tug WITH my leash so... I encourage some naughy behaviors on lead but only on cue. I taught him the cue for it and to let go so that his undesirable behavior now became something I had under control. He knows GET IT as he's allowed to tug and LET GO, please as it's time to stop so we can continue on.

I often play tug before we go out on a walk too just to burn off some of his energy. You've gotten way better advice so far in this thread but honestly I LOVE playing tug with my dog and getting him riled up. But only when I ask.

I just need to say, I LOVE that you say please to Bandit XD I get looked at like I'm crazy cause I say please and thank you to my dog. I mean, I say please and thank you to people... Why would I be rude to her?

(and before somebody says it, I know, dog != people. You can treat your dog how you like, and I'll treat mine how I like )

I follow nearly everything up with please. It helped me learn to be a softer handler which is what he needs. I say things like "Bandit, move please." or "Please go lay down." I'm sure I sound nuts but my politeness has rubbed off and I have a very polite dog. haha
