A while back a reader wrote in with the comment: "Why is your dog wearing a prong collar? There are other ways of controlling a dog."
Well, I took her advice to heart and decided to try a different tool.
What do you think? Is it working?
Like what you're reading? Buy the pups a bone!
Not a good Idea. Sorry. Skillets are for LICKIN'. I'm just sayin'.
Well, I suppose it depends on what you want to train him to do! If you're looking for a dishwasher, it'd do the trick!
LOL! That's a training too used by wives! My my! Will have to try it on King Toffee! BOL!
oooh - Is there some giant bacon in that pan???
PeeS: Why don't y'all come over for some pawgheritas?!?
Whats with all the comments lately about prong collars?! Two Pitties in the City got a mean one too!
The skillet idea could work, but it's so heavy to lug around!
Woo would need both arms to handle the skillet needed fur me!
Why is everybody commenting on the skillet? Obviously mom is just doing her aerobics. I can see that the real training tool is the poodle strategically tied to Loki to provide a bit of drag when he gets zoomies.
Hate to think how much maple syrup I need to send you for those flapjacks!
RE: Doggie-control: We use a snow-shovel up here. Another canadian cultural thing...
PeeS: The truth is finally out. We now know how you got those nicely toned-up arms, Mrs Wild Dingo. Yoga ?! HA...
Hmmm....is there a giant milk and egg omellete in that? it might ork then.
wags, Bud n Gin
we mean 'work'.
and is that poodle girl going to be around everday?
Where is Juno? Licking the other pots and pans?
It would work well here if you fill it with some good eggs and sausage.
Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara
hah - another word I hadn't heard much of before...skillet? Is that like a iron frying pan? 😛
I think different tools for different situations & dogs - you shouldn't make blanket generalisations & judgements until you have been in the same situation yourself and are able to prove an alternatve worked better...plus a tool is only as good as its user. Sadly, those that abuse tools give those that use them properly a bad name...
I bet every male in the country will cringe at that pic! 🙂
Sure is! Look at how those other dogs are staying. Loki is up, having fun.
That would only work for me if it's full of ham smothered in cheese.
LOL This post made me laugh. 🙂
Sorry I haven't been around much. I'm reading your blog (slooooowly catching up), but I'm not always commenting. Sorry.
At first in GR I thought the title said Skittles.. that would be another way maybe. Moose had a prong collar when I adopted him and I was horrified but now that I understand how they are properly used I get it. I still don't use one because of the reaction it provokes (either you have a vicious dog or you are a cruel person) which I know makes me a coward. Instead I use a 'gentle leader' which only provokes the 'you have a vicious dog' response since most everyone thinks it is a muzzle. Oh well. After Moose got bit by another dog because I could not effectively control him I realized I did not care what people thought. Let me know how your skillet method works and maybe we will switch...
