      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Aggressive female dog

Recommended Posts

MILLER TIME

Well to start off my brother has a 3 1/2 yr. old female lab and she's pretty aggressive. When he brings her over to play with my 14mth old male lab she will play with him and kinda lovingly cuddle with him and then all of a sudden she just snaps at him. I've noticed that lately my dog is getting the hint and is standoffish when she acts this way. Within an hour of playing this situation happens at least 4-5 times with both of us yelling "NO" to stop it. I guess what I'm getting at is this, is the temperment of the female fixable, will my dog start picking up her bad habits, which I'm very concerned about! Any opinions would be appreciated.

If the dog were aggressive it fight right away.

Your young dog needs to learn when to quit. At 3 1/2 years old a dog only wants that play for so long till it gets old. He could also be getting frisky. Her snapping is telling him shes had enough. Still I'd correct her instantly and tell her NO. He can only learn how to act with other dogs by being with other dogs. I bet this will disappear once your dog settles down a bit with maturity.

Don't sweat it-normal stuff. One dog is simply telling the other dog "chill...thats enough!" Trust me, it will NOT have any long lasting impact on your dog. If they were going to fight, they'd do it and get over it. Think back, haven't you ever seen those "mob hunt" scenarios, where 17-guys hike the corn stubble with 11- assorted dogs? The dogs get over their nastiness right away and then get on with the hunting. Yell "NO!" at them if it makes you feel better, but THEY will sort it out on their own.

You're welcome. wink.gif

I wouldn't worry about it. It sounds like dogs being dogs and the whole natural pecking order thing. I have a lab and my neighbor's do as well. The neighbor's dog plays with mine and will then snap as if to say "I own you." And then they play again. I would guess she is just asserting her dominance. I have seen no change in behavior from my lab.

If its just a snap or two and its over thats normal. If it escalates keep an eye on it!! Just one letting the other know its time to back off a bit.

If her ears go back and her tail down she's REALLY mad.

Otherwise she's establishing herself as the Alpha dog.

If her tail is wagging when she's reprimanding the little one, don't worry.

Normal dog stuff.

Thanks for the information. I would have thought by now they would be getting along better. It's really wierd though since she will coax him in, lick each other and then bite his head off. she knows its wrong but keeps doing it. Is there a way to teach her from these bad habits

Unless it's turning into an actual harmful situation, I'd stay out of it. Dogs need to have their pack orders. Humans always on the top of course.

Please. Relax. You're obsessing over something that will go away. Listen to what the fellas are telling you. You don't need to "teach her" to not do it. wink.gif
