I appreciate it. The trainers at the club seem to believe she might do really well. As per normal, time will tell though.

Re: Working with my eight week old Dutch?

can you explain HOW crating your pup, assists with building a bond with the owner please?
Im a crate fan, as are my dogs. But have never considered their crates as enabling that. How does it do that?

it can strengthen a "working bond"...

just like 2 people, spend too much time together, doing nothing or boring or bad stuff happening much of the time., the bond can suffer...

the more time spent doing "good Stuff" out of total time spent together strengthens the bond in my opinion..

absence makes the heart grow fonder....... or something like that anyhow.

just my opinion though....

The crate should always be a calm, safe place for a dog and NEVER used for punishment.

Not really keen on it because I don't want to read through pages of debate and discussion about biddability of a dog in a crate.

That's probably a good response.

The fantastic and utterly weird aspect of this electronic age is that Rick can just go out and create a fake profile to start a conversation he wants to have on just about any topic his heart desires.

Have fun working with you pup Anthony!

Re: Working with my eight week old Dutch?

Anthony

opinions are free and can be read or ignored. even Nicole is allowed to post hers even when she has nothing to contribute

here's one real world example (not a fictitious profile), that doesn't involve biddability, of why i don't think crating is a necessary tool to use to help create a bond with your dog (working or not)

MWD's
- i hope most people would agree a military handler and their mwd have a strong bond (which i and many others define as a high degree of mutual trust and respect)
- crating is not use in any part of the training process except for transport on some occasions...in fact, on many deployments in FOA's, the K9 and handler live together, "velcro" style, which is another often misunderstood dog term

there are many ways to create a good tight bond with your dog. just because some people might think they can be used for such a purpose, they definitely are not necessary....MANY other training methods work more effectively

i'll leave it at that and respect if you don't want to go into the subject any deeper. it interests me, but it's your thread and wasn't your Q, even tho others have already responded to it

post some longer vids of your bitework progress when you get a chance

Re: Working with my eight week old Dutch?

Rick, I think you are right. I don't have anything to contribute, at least not not to your bizarre and creepy traps anyway. Why might that be? I checked out something or rather someone "new" that joined this recently but really never did, at least not on their own terms. In other words, they're real people but have never visited this forum.

Keep doing you. It seems to work pretty well. Interestingly, you seemed to disregard what Anthony said and added what you had to say anyway. You see this as a contribution and not for what it really was, a bit of a self serving intrusion? Jesus man. Find something better to do with your time. And no, I'm not going to go away. Cry to the mods. Send your slithering, sneering PMs to your "friends". And keep banging your head on a brick wall.

What was it that Einstein said? "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." Try it with a little bit more force will ya? Remember, you bring about what you think about.
