Hello

I was wondering if any of you know of any website where I can get information about training dogs/puppies.

My sister just got a Boston Terrier puppy and I am usually not at her place to train it.

A link or any info would be much appreciated.

cheers ... Khan

I use clicker training on my dobe and it works great.

Books that I felt helped out a lot:
-The other end of the leash
-don't shoot the dog
-the dog whisper by paul owens NOT the tv dude
a bunch of other ones I can not remember....

here is a link to some puppy training from karen pryor

I used an electric shock collor on mine and it worked great!! Just be sure to use it right....not shock the dog to watch it dance....For that you find a Marine and they do it willingly....really, my neighbors (Marines) in Okinawa thought it was funny to shock each other with it.

I might not be able to fly well, but I can crash with the best of them.

OK, here is the deal ... the reason i started this post

several months back, my sister got a chihuahua from a shelter, about 2 years old. super hyper, barked a lot. i would take my baby daughter over to my sister's house ... but my daughter started fearing the dog, because it would jump all over (mind you, even though the chihuahua is small, she is about as tall as my two year old, when it is on it's hind legs)

my sister eventually got a boston terrier puppy (about 14 weeks old). this dog doesn't bark much, but is a bit hyper (not as hyper as the other one though).

my daughter is much better with this one, but both her and the dog are young ... now the dog is play biting, it might be teething. for grownups to deal with play biting is not an issue, but for a toddler it is a totally different experience.

right now my sister is working on several things, 1. house training, 2. trying to teach 'no' 3. control her jumping up on people's legs

just like this website is for heli enthusiasts, i thought people would know of sites, dedicated to puppy training, that is why i had initially posted. look forward to your feedback ... advice,

thanks ... khan

the problem is you cant go anywhere near the dog. If you go outside with it he wont make a peep. As soon as you go inside it just barks at everything that moves.

Here's some of the experience we have had with our 9 month old Boston, Winston:

With the biting, we yelped like what a dog would do. Winston would instantly back off when we did it. We later transitioned it into "ouch". If he did it two to three times in a row then we stopped play for a while and ignored him. Got chew toys so we could transition his biting to the toy and not us. He got the idea eventually.

Kept him stimulated. We used bits of Winston's food as training aids. Just decided to see if he'd sit one evening and in about 10 minutes he knew "come", "sit", and "lay down" Did it all for pieces of his regular food! I was amazed at how quick he picked this up. We didn't use "no" too much. More of a hard "ack". If his infraction was severe he got a stern "no". If Winston wouldn't respond to "no" then we held him on his back until he submitted. Sounds mean but it worked. Said "go potty" when he did his buisness and praised him afterward. People use the NILF (Nothing In Life is Free) method, which we use as well.

Crate trained him. Another one of those "that's mean" but they end up liking it. It became his "safe place". Anytime Winston is under the weather (like from the vaccinations) he goes in his crate.

Exercise, exercise, exercise. They need to release that energy. Gotta be careful though, they can overheat and will push themselves past what they can do. Running in the yard with a dunk in the kiddy pool gives Winston a break and keeps him cool. Loves the lake.

Enjoy!!! We have had a blast with our little man.

I don't believe in using shock
I've raised Beagles for AKC field trials since I was 14. Try breaking one from running a deer without a shock collar and you will change your mind. As long as you are not an idiot and use some positive reinforcement you can't beat them. Mine has 10 levels and I have felt all of them. 1 is hardly nothing and 6 is as much as I wanted. I usually never go higher than 3.

I have a progressive bark collar too. Once pups get about 8 months old they want to bark at everything. I put it on them a few hours at a time. The smart ones figure it out after a few days, the stupid ones don't and get sold.

About the best way for a pup is like TwistedRotor described. Use small pieces of a different dog food than what you usually feed them and work alot with them. Some will pick it up quick, some will just be stupid forever. Good Luck!

I agree with Double Springs. Shock collars work great if the are used RIGHT! You cant just put one on and shock the crap out of the dog. You have to learn when and how to use it correctly for it to work.

My neighbor thought I was cruel for using the shocker. Here's my view of it..

When (if) she took her dog for a walk it was on a 12 foot leash. It could go 12 feet from her in any direction. If it went aound a tree, bush, car, ect, she had to go untangle it. If her dog got to playing with someon elses dog that was on a leash they got tangled together.

My dog had a shock collar on. He could go 100 feet in any direction. He didnt get tangled in anything (safer, no choking). And all he had to do was listen to me. I told him to come, he came. I told him to sit, he sit. All he had to do was listen and he was happy. If he decided to not listen....ZAP. Then he listened. I have tried every level (10) and I can stand all of them. Not saying I like it, but its not the worst thing. I agree with DS above, 6 is about as much as I care for though. My dog takes about 3 to get his attention. If he's being hard headed he gets 5. There are times when he decides to totally ignore me and he gets 7.

My dog now comes when called. Sits, lays, stays, sits at crosswalk untill I tell him to cross, goes to the other side and sits untill I tell him to continue on. He goes and does his "business" then comes back, sits on the sidewalk untill I pick it us and tell him he can go. Will leave anything I tell him to alone. And learning more every day. All this has been made so much simpler with the shocker. Its to the point now I hardly ever have to shock him, all I have to do is beep it and he gets the point.

I know a lot of people dont like shockers but in my oppinion they are the best training tool if used CORRECTLY. Use them in conjunction with treats and other forms of training and you cant beat it.

Good luck with your training efforts. Keep us posted on how the progress and what you decide to use.

I might not be able to fly well, but I can crash with the best of them.

Who wants to listed to SOMEONE ELSE's untrained and undisciplined dog yap relentlessly. I blame irresponsible dog owners more than the dog. The dog can be trained. The ignorant homeowners are a lost F'n cause!

Stupidity can be cured. Ignorance is for life!

i have owned a boxer about 25 years back. i read a lot of books about training. to discipline, most of them recommended rolling up a newspaper (very few sheets) and to use it on the dogs nose to discipline.

the rolled up newspaper didn't hurt the dog, but the sound of it scared the puppy. that worked for me back then, not sure if that is still ok or not. but then again, they have choke collars these days, we didn't when i had my boxer
