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.

Yuki, now 1 year and 10 months, still tears clothes, especially those of my daughter and one of my sons. I would like advice, please, on how to stop her when she is in the process of doing it. With my daughter it is wide trouser legs and with my son it's sleeves.

Thanks.

Make her sit. Teach a hand signal along with a very obnoxious sound (I use my hand like a crossing guard's "stop" and a loud, unpleasant "EH" sound when I want the guys to stop something.) So, the process would go - Hand sign, "EH" then "sit." Then when she is sitting and calm, offer her something to play with, with the person she's molesting. Sounds like a tuggie of some sort might be appropriate in this instance (I cut up the pant legs of old sweat pants, tie the ends in knots, use that for tug toys.)

Thank you for the advice. Now, when Yuki starts chewing and pulling we say no very sharply and very crossly and she is beginning to learn, but I'm sure it will be a while before she's completely learned not to tear and chew. She's 2 today, so she's still a bit immature.

Uh, yea... Ami was about 2.5 - 3 before he started settling down. But the hand signals and noxious voice worked well. Just had to be consistent 'cause while he would stop, he would start back up again a few minutes later Rolling Eyes
