My vent is... Omg basements are hard/creepy to clean. But we are about to have so much more space for crating dogs and BFs grow tents!

Just sucks because the ceiling is low and I have to be all bent over moving boxes and sweeping. My back is on fire already.

Horse people are so infuriating. It is impossible to even bring up the mere IDEA of clicker training without them calling all their lackeys are swarming me with "BUT UR SPOILING UR HORSE BY REWARDING HIM FOR SOMETHING HE IS EXPECTED TO DO OMG STOOPID HEAD"

Something is weighing on me, worrying me, and I am having a ton of trouble taking my mind off it. Ugh.

Sorry but I have to say I agree, I don't want a 1000 lb animal all up in my business.

Before you bring up wild/zoo animals let me say they use those because they have no other choice! A wild animal is still wild! A horse/dog/cat/cow whatever is a DOMESTICATED animal an animal you CAN work closely with so sometimes clicker training is MORE risky with a large animal that you have to be in close contact with.

I prefer to use methods like Clinton Anderson uses , they aren't cruel but they Re based on how horses naturally communicate with one another.

We've had this conversation before and you don't understand how clicker training works. Guessing neither do these people and that's why they're reacting the same way you are.
People almost always react poorly to what they don't understand.


My back is killing me after all the shoveling, I'm exhausted, I think I'm going to just take a nice hot muscle soak. Then a nap.

.
Exactly.

I know its not the norm in the horse world but there are PLENTY of very experienced horse people who have fab results with clicker training. People who dont understand how it works are just the loudest in many areas.

Not saying there's anything wrong with her, just that that sort of breeder is not the responsible type that the OP of the topic is looking for.



Not to do extensive health testing, yes. And I don't completely agree with that anyway (see the post from crazedACDs "get out of jail free card") but this breeder didn't do ANY health testing. If they aren't making sure the dogs they're breeding are healthy, I can't assume they actually paid for a real hearing test, even. And at that, I don't think it's responsible to breed them no matter how well they may work if they may be ridden with genetic issues.



The poster has shared MORE than enough info to steer almost anyone here away from their breeder, I think that is a fair idea to grasp. They don't health test, and don't do anything except work. I don't consider that a well bred dog, personally, and most here wouldn't either. I don't expect everything under the sun to be covered, but I would expect the basics to be covered to be considered even halfway responsible.
Ok, I get the health testing, but why is it wrong for a breeder to not do anything except work with their dogs?

Easter will be colder than Christmas. This is wrong. Global warming is a lie lol :P
16 foot snow drifts here, and parts of Scotland have been without power for days.

Insane amount of snow for this time of year. Or any time of year!! So pretty though
