I call this his Got Milk pose. Remember his puppy shot? (My favorite Dusty pic.)
He's such a rascal! And we just love him! But his bad temper hasn't disappeared. I bought a clicker last week after I read an article by Shirley Chong.
I had seen an advertisement for the perfectdog system and googled it to find some reviews. A professional trainer replied to someone's post about the collar being used by the system being similar to spikes on the inside. The dogs shown on the infomercial were tooo docile in the after poses. It gave me a bad feeling to see their spirit essentially gone. He mentioned these lessons by Shirley Chong which essentially make use of a clicker to create a training relationship between you and your dog.
Stay tuned for results in the coming weeks. "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful."
