    it would take me months to edit the language, translate his short hand, make sure all the folks he slagged off were no longer with us or think of name changes in order not to get sued, get my mothers permission and then argue with all my sisters on royalty rights.

    Piglet
    let out into garden = exciting
    staying out in garden = exciting
    coming in = boring

    Yes thats it but the problem these days is that everyone keeps talking about “reward” “punishment” “negative” & “positive” so I put it in those terms –

    – Basicaly anything any animal likes doing is – “Positivly reinforced” by each occurence making repetition more likley …as, as piglet says, coming in would be boring ( punishing)

    If you actualy CALL HIM – that is teaching him to ignore/disobey you if he refuses = disobedeince.
    becomes a ‘reward behaviour’.

    Personaly I rarely use any of the words becaue they are being misused so widely these days.

    I am also having similar problems have a 7 month old male, who is perfect at recall in the house, garden and at training class, but once outside at the beach or park, he suddenly forgets you exist, and loses his hearing.  He does not respond to toys, or smelly food (liver cake yum!) or even when you hide, he doesnt even notice your gone (though owners of other dogs certainly do notice you have high tailed it away from him.)  can anyone help!!

    Murphy occasionally lifts his leg now (not very high) but you can tell he’s doing it.  Isn’t he a bit young for puberty (he was 6 months old yesterday (Monday)????

    The rope thing for the garden works if he goes out alone.  if the others go with him he trips them up with it (on perpose) when they are trying to come in when called!  so he’s out alone now!
