Now that's just using common sense

Red fawn rising- no lol. He started in them. Any of those 3 require a little more tough love than I am capable. Most of his protection training was how to attack and cause the least amount of damage- and learning to back down on command, two major things I wanted him to know. Agility is fun and gives him something to play with on occasion we go to local "play day" type events and play around in it. We don't compete in anything other than the most spoiled or who has the biggest push over owner. He generally takes first In either of those. In obedience training he naturally learned his basics- and some other useful commands- go get the horses, shut the gate ect. Nothing major. I hired professionals because to be honest it kills me to not give him his way (not a good way to train) "oh you didn't do what I told you too, oh but your cute have a treat anyway" would have been the result of me independently training him. At the end of the day he is my kid nothing more. Was simply stating private trainers are a God-send as group classes didn't do much good. And not sure what the other you mentioned is, again I don't show and don't really keep up with them.

And no I do not have 3 phd's not sure where that came from- granted 3 was my goal but I fell very short and barely got the second by my birthday. I hold Theology and Business- all other degrees where stepping stones to those. Like most I hold an associates, bachelors, and masters perhaps that is where you got 3... There are only 5-6 people who are my age and currently hold 3, I'm working on my third but will probably be another 2 years at the earliest before I obtain it.

Don't take this wrong, but, what a strange combination. Theology and Business!

And why would you want 3 Ph.D's? I am simply curious, that is all. I often wonder what makes folk do what they do.

I thought I read where you stated you're a physician of some sort. Is that incorrect?

Also, I must say, and I think many may agree with me, that ONE Doberman sounds like a little too much to handle for you, given your style of training, or lack thereof, much less TWO young Dobermans living under the same roof when you and your fiance move in together.

Does your fiance plan on doing all of the training for his puppy? If so, have you discussed how you plan to have consistency in training both dogs? Your boy may not react to his training style like the girl might.

...Just something to consider, among other things.

Speaking of the Real Housewives of..., does anyone remember when the Bravo channel was about the arts and theater? Or when TLC was actually considered The Learning Channel, and the Discovery Channel was educational, rather than airing reality shows about duck-hunting rednecks? No offense to duck-hunters. Or rednecks. Just sayin' there doesn't need to be a reality show about either of those, IMO.

A person who attains a doctorate of philosophy may often be referred to as a doctor.

As far as I know you cannot attain a Ph.D in Theology, but I guess things may have changed since I last picked up a book and studied.

By the way, I am not saying anything derogatory regards this guys achievements, hey, I wish I had a Ph.D.

The terrifying thing about the educational system, not just in the US but the UK and seemingly the world over, is, no one seems to give a damn our kids are literally leaving school not able to read and write.

That's correct, but she said she is a physician. I will have to find that post now.

A PhD is obviously not the same as a medical doctor, which she hasn't claimed outright to be, but I can't imagine what else she means.

I, too, wish I had a PhD. However, I do not wish to go back to school for several years. I guess I'll make do with what I've got for now.

ETA: Crap, I can't find that post and I don't feel like looking through every post she's made. Maybe I read it wrong or am getting all of her credentials confused. *shrug*

Technically, it is a D.Th. I think. But it is accepted as being on par with a Ph. D. At least, that is my understanding. Either way, I know a number of seminary graduates, and none of them feel the need to add letters to their names.

Actually, you can get a Ph.D. in Theology, though it is not the preferred degree among theologians, as that means you did not acquire it at a divinity school. The preferred doctorate in theology is the Th.D.

I, too, wish I had a PhD. However, I do not wish to go back to school for several years. I guess I'll make do with what I've got for now.



ETA: Crap, I can't find that post and I don't feel like looking through every post she's made. Maybe I read it wrong or am getting all of her credentials confused. *shrug*
I'm not sure but I think you might refer to this post in the threat "Looking for pup"
It was however posted my PortersMama and not SGranger Ph. D.

"Well, a lot of diligence can get you a Ph.D. Getting a Ph.D. does not, however, require common sense! And no, I'm not jealous. I'm a physician, and I know at least a few doctors whose lack of common sense makes my head spin!

Not saying you don't have common sense, OP, but I would think you would be research-oriented and know how to dig through a bunch of garbage to find the facts. That's why I'm a little confused as to why you're willing to purchase a gift without doing your homework in several areas. If you did your due diligence and are still going to purchase a cheap dog - cheap meaning many things, not just price - I think you're in the wrong place."

Thank you! I knew I read something to that effect, and I really thought I'd remembered seeing it posted by SGranger Ph.D, but I'm glad you found it and clarified things.
