our October HOTM Winners!
Cool Weather Zoomies!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|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.

Hello All. I've been having a problem with Yuki recently, who is now almost 16 months old. She keeps demanding treats constantly when I have her out walking. My 2 sons who also walk her don't have this problem. She walks a short or a long distance, then stops and refuses to budge without a treat. If I try to ignore her she starts zooming. On walks with her I have my phone in my pocket, so that I can check the time when I need to, and I also have treats. As soon as I put my hand in my pocket for my phone, her ears prick up and she looks around expectantly, thinking I'm going to give her a treat. Yesterday I took her for a 1 hour walk and didn't put my hands near my pockets. To my great surprise we got the whole way without any demands for treats. I don't know if that was a fluke or if that's the answer to my problem. She's fickle and she doesn't demand treats from anyone else when out walking.

I think you've got your answer. My guys are highly "ritualized" if we've done something once, it becomes a tradition and they expect to be repeated. They also are heavily cue responsive...for instance, if I get anything out the cupboard that holds their treat bags all the dogs will come running from different directions and sit expectantly waiting for a treat. Even if I was only opening the coffee bag ????

Yes, it looks like that was the answer. The only time I was using treats was in the mornings when I was letting her run loose around the yard at the front of the house, but she was beginning to get too interested in the gardens on either side of us and wasn't always responding straightaway when I called her, so I put a stop to that rather than risk her climbing or jumping right over either wall.
