    I found it! Don't know how to enter photos for the Pet of the Week threads but I found this thread! LOL

    I can't help much for most as far as feeding. I've raw-fed for more than 20 years and am somewhat limited on my knowledge of packaged/bagged/canned pet foods, so I can only go by what I hear from others and see on the dogs as a result of feeding commercial products.

    I have trained in several areas for longer than that (and yes, bred for years) and hopefully I can contribute in some small way regarding that.

    Oh, but you all have lovely pets!

    My girl Giza.

    If you are a dog trainer then maybe I can pick your brains - I have a dog that will not come when it is called at the park esp if it is following a delicious smell. She is 1 1/2 and a lab X kelpie - highly intelligent and this behaviour is really just stubbornness - what is your opinion - Kate

    If she has Kelpie in her at all (doubtful and probably a guess by someone) then she is a hunter/herding type dog. Working. She needs a job to do. Energy to burn. She needs to burn off that excess energy so that you can get past the energetic needs of the body to get to the mind. 30 minutes of controlled ball-play, jogging, even a "mental" workout (for her) will help.

    Have you looked into clicker training?

    A park, unfortunately, is not the place to train. "Proofing" the training is OK there as long as the dog is on a long line, but not for training. The actual training needs to be done in the confines of the home, without distractions that the dog is not familiar with, and graduated to the "outside" world, so to speak. ("Outside" meaning outside the confines of the yard/home.) This takes a bit of time but is well worth it. And, given the Lab in her, she has a nose. She'll follow a sccent. She needs to learn that YOU are the most important thing in her world and all good things come from you. Including the treats and praise that come with non-compulsive training that will get her to that point. Without details I can't detail for you. Basics, yes, but not customized for her and your situation training.

    Yes. By all means you can pick my brain for what it's worth.

    Post the question (Won't Come type subject) in the subject line and outline the "scenario" and her level of training (what you've trained so far), the issues in the park, how often you take her there, what you do for a bit of training first to get her under control, etc. and I'll post an answer that will hopefully help you and others, too.

    Thanks Noelene - she came from a rural farm area so probably has kelpie - lots of kelpies pure and otherwise here in Australia. I exercise her day and night - running and walking and with the ball and off lead and luckliy she has a lab appetite so training is good with food but I think the clicker training may be the answer. But once she gets her head down she will NOT budge !!! She belongs to my DD but she is working on an island and so I have her !!!! Eventually she wants to do flyball with her but until she comes when called that will never happen.

    Aw, Kate. Yes. It will happen. And flyball would also be a great way of burning off that exess energy. That would, to her, be her "job" but not a "job" to her in the strictest sense of the word. It's just a matter of getting her training down to focus, and only on you, your DD or any other of your family members as long as you all do it (the training) the same way. It won't be hard.

    Sorry. I didn't realize you were in Austrailia so yes, Kelpie is a possibility. I'm in the States so when people say "Kelpie" I do question. Some here tend to use it as a "selling" point. icon_sad.gif

    I'll put a bit together tonight and post a thread tomorrow on the basics of that type of training, and a link to read that will hopefully help.

    The bottom line is, with her and all other dogs, never give a command ("come" in your case) that you can't "enforce" if the dog doesn't obey. The dog then learns that it can "disobey" at will and may not get corrected or have to immediately respond at all times. THAT we can work on. icon_smile.gif Easily.

    Yeppers. That appetite is a start. And mentally she may be still a "baby" in many ways. Then you'll need to take it past food. But with an appetite it'll be a whole lot easier to start and work with.

    Not a bad girl, just one needing a little "direction". Not hard to overcome. icon_smile.gif

    I love this whole community forum thing wether it is cooking or my biggest joy our KIDS(pets) we have not informed them they are anything but. We rescue lost or abandoned animals and we find homes for them after they are well enough to leave. some have been pretty sick by the time they reached our home and some just outgrew there welcome or as I say there new babyness which I find so very sad they are all god's little creations and they deserve to be treated as such. some have become head of the household and greatly help me with the newcomers our oldest is ginger and she is the daycare guru so to speak she will sleep with them bathe them show them the ropes basically my right hand!!! in helping them adjust and learn what they need to know or relearn as the case may be.the oldest one who is still pretty healthy the vet calls her the energizer bunny is my daughter MICAH she is now 19 years old and outside of losing 3 teeth and a little slower she is fine I am so glad I have new found neighbors to share common interests with and hope to get to know you all wishing you a wonderful day and hope all is well GOD BLESS

    I haven't shared any recent photos of my Marley (cat) in quite some time, so I was just trying to refresh my memory icon_redface.gif (aka re-reading Potsie's tutorial). icon_wink.gif

    I have been away from zaar/food.com for four years now, motherhood sure changes things! I am happy to find this forum about pets. We are parents to three rescued dogs, one which was adopted the same day she was scheduled to depart to puppy heaven, and two that came from a local rescue. We also have a foster Great P with us.

    Looking forward to reading all the amazing stories! : )
