My family and I are heartbroken, I have a 6yr old spayed female, NO health probloms,all shots,took 1st place in obedience at Radisson Kennels,house trained. She HATES bicycles and motorcycles and charges after them. I live in a neighborhood with lots of traffic and would love to give her a loving home in the country? I can be contacted at www.jcschempf@peoplepc.com Thanks frown.gif

Is she attacking them, or just chasing? If she is not attacking/biting it's probably something you can train out of her fairly quickly(especially if she catches on quick on OB)....just a thought. This does not seem like a situation that would require having to get rid of a dog if the dog means that much to you. BUT....I don't know all the circumstances and will not judge based on that.

A check cord/prong collar or E-collar might be useful in this training once properly introduced. I would think it would be handled like any other OB issue in that the dog should NOT be allowed to chase.

If there is anything we can help with feel free to ask.

Have you tried training her NOT to chase vehicles?

It might be too late for this trick, but I'll share it with you anyway. Fill a balloon with hot water, ride your bike down the road and when she chases you, slam the balloon down on her head. It doesn't hurt the dog, but the warm water will make her think she's bleeding. After a few times, she will associate chasing bikes with danger. This worked for one of our dogs we had when I was a child. Who knows?? If she is a quick learner, it might work.

Good Luck!

Not trying to be a jerk, but why is it assummed that people who live in the country like to take pets with behavioral problems and take on the legal liability? Keep the dog on a leash when its outside, train it and exercise it. Problem should be fixable as it is never to late to train a dog. There are bikes, motorcycles, atv, snowmobiles and all type of other things for her to charge in the country too.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
