    Why do people that can't take advice, insist on giving it?

    jesus don't say that
    I was just about to post his quote and suggest if he,d developed a vagina while my computers been fucked out
    My writing style is pretty polarising as I do not have any filters. I just say what I think is true, I'm poor at hints and innuendo. So don't be offended if what I say comes across as a bit raw, none of it will be intended to offend.

    You can summon @Ruff back from the dead with whiskey and country music during the seance

    Life is like a country sonhg... my wife left me... kinda made this problem look pretty small. It's alright, I used an Acme 211 whistle and she came right back. Will get around to answering this.

    been a while.. this is something written a long time back around a Foxy with attitude problem/ Even Ruff approved at the time..

    ''​I went the other way with a young foxy cross that would run at visitors barking and throw herself against the window in the car when another dog came into view.
    The temptation is to talk firmly or harshly to the dog because of ones own lack of confidence about an outcome,, you know the outcome and try to keep the dog on track by becoming overly firm with it. Your stress levels are rising and the dog picks this up immediately.

    In my view this only serves to reinforce the undesired behavior in that it signals your dog the visitor or new dog is a threat both to you and itself. It may see itself as protecting you, because you appear to be animated and nervous.

    First thing for me in such a situation is to remain calm and reassuring.

    I talk and stroke.. not after the dog is already worked up, that would only reinforce the behavior we are trying to extinguish , , rather, when I see it coming the dog is calmed and under control as the person comes into sight, and now the dog which sits in my office all morning and greets loads of new people every day , is also calm and pays them attention only in a calm friendly manner.

    The barking at other dogs thing out of the car , and running at them in a wish to dominate manner, has also improved and is now manageable.​''''



    sorry about the Mrs Ruff. These things can be very painfull
