Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
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.

 Ruff Love technique

PostSubject: Ruff Love technique   Sun Dec 15, 2013 10:22 pm

I have contacted a behavioralist for my 2 huskies who have had some recent escalation in their behaviors (resource guarding, and attacking the cat). He has recommended a technique (book) called 'Ruff Love' by Susan Garrett. From what I can tell (I have ordered the book) it involves crating much of the time, except for during training and under direct supervision. It appears I would need to keep the dogs seperated for the duration of the begining phase (which is 6-8 weeks)....but again, I have not read the book, and there is limited clarification/description on the web. From what little info I have found, it does not sound like it would be easy, and it may make things worse if the dogs get less exercise.

Does anyone have any experience with this technique, either good or bad?

Susan Garrett is a respected trainer in the sport world, I have heard good things about the book. Never have had personal experience though. Her programs work well if you can be devoted to them for the duration and take things seriously.

You can always modify what you read too. Take them out and exercise them- I think everyone with this breed would agree, you'd be crazy (or go crazy) not exercising them! Lol Smile other than that, I agree with ^
