  1. Prong collar for puppy?

    Puppy Corner
    Hi all :) Khaleesi is now just a little over 5 months old. She was a breeze on the lead up until about a month ago. We would spray her with a water bottle if the lead got tight and gently tug back whilst giving a correction of "no". Now she will sometimes flinch if you say no as she thinks...

  3. 5 years old and I still cant control him

    General Training & Obedience
    Hey everyone. I have a 5 year old Dobe who I had since he was a puppy. I took him to obedience classes and he did great. He was crate trained for the first 2 years of his life.

    General Training & Obedience
    Does anyone in here have an opinion on the pronged training collar. I am trying to train my dobe to walk nicely on the leash so he can be manageable. I can barely walk him, my wife can not if he decides to pull. Its an incredible workout but no fun. I have heard some say its cruel, and...
  7. Weaseling out of a collar

    General Training & Obedience
    I have a nine month old boy, named Beau, who goes immediately into flight mode when he feels something isn't right - and it's over random situations; anything from walking past an aisle in a pet store, an animal he's never seen before (oh lord, you should have seen him the first time he saw a...

    Hello Can anyone recommend a good dog trainer in the Vancouver BC area? I have a newly adopted 1 year old doberman.
