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.

Ragnarok has started a bad habit and I was hoping someone would have a suggestion of what to try.

He has started barking at nervous dogs at the dog park. I do tell him "no" and take him away. He settles down eventually but still, I don't want him to get bad habits.

I know he also barks when he wants to play with a dog but this seems different (still not aggressive but more annoying )

I have nothing really of substance to help you but Gabby does similar antics. She picks on the nervous dogs. Except her way of doing it is biting them in the butt and running away. This really pisses of the owners. I just remove her from the dog and redirect her into playing with me over picking on the dog which works for that dog in that exact moment but that is it. She still does it all the time and I have not found a good way to resolve it.

I am finding that with Kairo, simply removing a small distance does NOT work. I have to physically end any and all fun/progress. For instance, I have been trying to get her to quit "creeping" over the gate (staring for hours at me/the cat). I have tried everything from physically moving her back, to moving the gate further away. No matter what she will either find a way to still be able to see what she wants to (limited walls to hold a gate up) or just run away when I make a move towards her (but not if she sees me looking at her).

This has filtered into walks, where she is still pulling though she immediately responds to me planting my feet. She pulls, I plant my feet, she slackens/sits, I give her the free command, and she immediately goes back to pulling.

The only thing that seems to get through her head is when ALL things end when she does something I do not want.

For the baby gate creeping, I have started crating her for a couple minutes at a time.

For the walk, the moment she pulls I turn right around and march back to the apartment without allowing her to stop for anything. If she hasn't done her business she will go back out a few minutes later. I am getting quicker results on this front already.

My suggestion is to end the dog park fun the moment she starts barking at another dog. Carry the lead in your hand. When she starts barking, calmly walk up, put the leash on, and walk her back to your car. You don't necessarily have to leave, but treat it like "crate time" until she calms down. No less than 5 minutes in the car even if she's calm. I would say that after the second offense in one day, drive home. She will quickly learn that poor manners will end the trip.
