Re: Any cheap solutions to remove fleas from dogs?

funny ... hahah

but also downright RUDE to get wrapped up with trivial shit too much and drive off a poster who may have legitimate questions and needs

- if i was a mod i'd say to keep your jokes ON TOPIC
- if was the poster i'd press on with my questions and agree or disagree with the suggestions and comments

since i'm neither i'll leave it at this and ask the poster to use a PM to me if he wants any more help or suggestions and hope he doesn't consider me rude

Re: Any cheap solutions to remove fleas from dogs?

Thank you Rick. Now based upon what I did, which prompted you to offer a behavior that I was expecting would you say that it was a result of:

a. bribe
b. lure
c. conditioned response based something more complex
d. other (use your imagination)

You respond quite well to free shaping but I wanted to give you some other options to choose from in case you wanted to have some fun with this. And yes, I am well acquainted with BZs, I have received several as the BZ program is one of our corporate based methods for recognition.

Chris

so
what have you used, how did it work and please tell us how you are going about finding a permanent home for the dogs you have rescued ?

i have done a lot of work in the rescue field and might have some new suggestions that you could try out

Re: Any cheap solutions to remove fleas from dogs?

i will give you one idea now you can think over

i NEVER give a rescue dog to anyone for FREE, and i always evaluate the owners WITH the dog to see how they will handle it

when i show the dog and discuss with a prospective owner what dog ownership involves, i always tell them it is going to be an added expense on their family budget. of course they say they know this, but i go into details about what it might cost to handle "normal" problems they could expect from any dog they get.

i then explain how the dog has been given basic preventative meds and some of the time i have taken to help the dog become more 'adoptable', etc
i don't try to sell them a training class, but i want them to understand the dog has been WELL taken care of and that it costs a bit to do that and SAVED them the money from having to do the same thing.

i then explain what kind of adoption fee they need to pay to get the dog. always less than what my cost was.
- and then i tell them if they bought a dog from a breeder it would be WAY more expensive, but they would not necessarily get a better dog than this one
- and i also tell them if they have a problem right after getting it i will help them at no charge

** since i give them specific techniques to do with the dog as soon as they take it home, i rarely have been asked to help with a problem. and i have re-homed quite a few dogs this way

bottom line for me :
1. "free to a good home" is definitely not the way i have advertised rescued dogs
2. every day the foster dog is with me is a another training day for that dog

food water and love fall WAY short of how i rescue a dog !!
