2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Running Alongside - Butt Bumping   Wed Sep 04, 2013 8:19 pm

Hey all,
So I have a 3 year old female and an 8 month old male.
Yesterday I decided to start to train the younger one to become used to the bike and how to run alongside my female to eventually pull. Now, this was not a long run or pulling session by any means (I believe he's too young still), but I just wanted to test out the commands and see how they run connected to each other.
Immediately my male, Jago, takes off running like he's made for this (AWESOME!) and my female understands that she needs to start slow to preserve energy. Once she caught up to his energy level and would be right next to him, he would turn and look at her and do a side bump/butt bump to keep her behind him. I initially thought he was playing, until it happened 2-3 more times and I realized he's not excited, he's really NOT letting her be next to him! The lead I had on them wasn't long enough for her to be behind him and so her harness - a pull harness - was pulling up on her stomach because she was being forced to be behind him and have him pull her along. Once I saw this happening, I stopped the training for the day as far as having them connected.

Now, I've never had two dogs tied to each other and out in front. Whenever we walk, I've had 3 dogs tied to each other and they all know to stay behind me, so there's no fight for who's in front, I always win.

So how do I get Jago to let Brooks be beside him without having him butt bump her all the time?

The other issue is "on by" and getting him to not stop at the neighbors house with 3 annoyingly loud yappy dogs... ugh, but I can work on that one Smile

Thanks in advance for your advice!
