oh, with one exception, aversive, punishment based training techniques because....they don't work.
Later this month I start my lecture/workshops "Transitions: Your baby and your dog" for the largest hospital network on LI.
Also, had a blast a few weeks ago. I was invited, free of charge to a three day lecture given by Ian Dunbar (he is THEEEEEEEEEEEEE man in dog training. Google him, you'll really like him) Best part was, after the first night we were chatting at the bar and he invited me to dinner. For me, that was like dinner with Roger Staubach.
How are your pooches doing?
Mine are doing great --the youngster is starting to "work"
cattle a little -no formal training until he is older. He has a similar working style as his dad
My two females have started whistle training...Since they sometime work 300 to 400 yards away the whistle allows me to control them better.
Had an e-mail from a girl in Sweden wanting to buy a female pup (she uses them to herd reindeer (for real))
Unfortunately I didn't have one and will probably not breed my females for another year.
From the video looks like yours is doing good..
Dang can't I complain about 4 bugs and clicker
