    Re: Shock Collar

    I sure have read it and there was nothing in the article that was new to me. She knows nothing in life is free, but that doesn't change how she acts to get my attention . . . . . . . That is the only problem I am having with her, but in my opinion it is the worst thing other than potty training. . . . . I will keep being patient, I was just hoping there was something new to try as I've tried it all.

    If she knows it, then you have what I have in my female Bulldog --- 'it is her world and we just get to participate in it' Banks is VERY stubborn and at 8.5 yrs old, she is still a work in progress.

    Re: Shock Collar

    Gee whiz......she needs to go to a doggie gym for the winter! Can you get a treadmill? Can you get a play group together....but right off the bat, stop playing with her when she grabs you or something of yours. If your niece walked up to you and slapped you in the face and screamed lets go play,would you? And quit talking.......no no no noon no no no quit it quitit quit it is a sing song babble to her because you really don't get dominant back to her. Just crack her once or twice with a glare like another dog would.....she will get the message when you mean it then later you decide it's time to play and wrestle so that they are not associated! Good luck rehabbing miss bossy pants......be careful,you are treading on that area when many owners give them up for adoption because they escalate their behavior and alpha ness.

    Re: Shock Collar

    My dog Violet is very strong willed so I know what you are going through. She will be turning 1 in a few days and no longer chews furniture and will do what I say. Although if she finds things on the floor, she thinks that is fair game. The key is lots of exercise and attention. Here's what we did:
    --Got her lots of chew toys. One of the best is a deer's antler. It can not be broken. Bully sticks are good, too. And zhu zhu pets are great. They make a lot of noise and run through the house, keeping her entertained.
    -- Lots of exercise. I take her for a long walk once or twice a day and make sure she has some time to run. (Even at 6 months old she could easily walk 3 miles with hills.) She likes to do what I call her "rodeo" run where she runs as fast as she can in a big circle. Inside, I throw this squeaky rubber chicken and have her bring it back to me.
    --As much social interaction as possible. I try to take her to the park or visiting other people as much as I can. She loves being around people and it wears her out.
    --Play games with her by hiding treats. A trainer told me that 15 minutes of games equals about an hour or exercise.
    --Finally, I always talk gently to her and never hit her or be rough with her. However, when she does something she knows she is not supposed to do, I shout in a very deep and loud voice "NO." Then, depending on the situation, will walk off and leave her alone in the room. Frenchies HATE being ignored. They seem much more like a child than a dog. We had pugs before Violet and I never had a battle of wills with them.
    Good luck!

    Looking for carseat thingy for my 2 frenchies and came upon a soft vibrating collar & remote (expensive) but seems to be a nicer alternative to a shock collar.

    Re: Shock Collar

    Gina I am going through the exact same thing with Louie too...it is very stressful because I have never had a dog act this way!!!! I am a culprit of yelling No at him a lot and I feel like nothing is working so he has been getting lots of time outs in his crate!!! Let me know if you find something that works!!!! STRESSED!

    Re: Shock Collar

    Wanted to bring this up again since we are in the stages of training Rosie. We lease a boarding kennel on our property next door and one of the guys trains for obedience so we are giving him a shot to help us out. Rosie for the most part would listen to us, but some days gets very stubborn also. He comes over every morning and afternoon and it has been 3 weeks now and we are seeing major improvements, but we have been also using a training collar on her the last 2 weeks. My wife and i also thought that this would be cruel to do on her since i know what they do by using them on our hunting retrievers. The one he has though is for smaller dogs and to be honest Rosie has not hollered once since we used it on her and my wife has accepted it. You have to know what you doing when using them and when to use it. I have seen some people just buy them without reading or getting knowledge and really hurt a dog. When using you can notice the dogs threshold by the way they are acting. I also rather use this when need be instead of a lot of others that use the choker collars.
