Best thing I taught my dog

6 posts in this topic

I am not the best dog trainer in the world and my dog does have some bad habits...but...I taught him to not "go" in the yard. He must have a place where the grass is tall or where I tell him he can go.

Even in his large kennel, he goes in the same spot where I don't mow.

I went to a friends house (with two dogs) this weekend and realized how lucky I am!

Do you have a large yard, or is your dog poopin on someone else's property?

If your neighbors live nearby, they will hate you. Be responsible for your dog, clean up after it!

I always tell people "it's better to find some of your own doggy poo in your yard, then your dead dog in my yard."

The best thing I have taught my dogs is "Dookie"-go poo on command. Give the command, wait a minute, clean it up.

Jameson,

Relax. You're taking partial info and filling in the blanks with worst case assumptions. The guy trained his dog to go in one spot on command. He should be commended. Most people now days don't train their dogs at all.

I took it as his friend must have a lot of dead grass from the "potty" stains. I will be training my dog to go in one area also. Nice work!

I have a 3 acre yard. I mow about half of it...half is tall grass and brush.

My dog "kennel" is a huge fenced in area. A portion of the area is not mowed.

So no, I don't have to pick up after my dog. And, if I do...it is all in one spot. The brush in the backyard is too thick for me to walk in, and if I do everything seems to be compost already.

I agree about the "other people" not picking up their dog business in the yard. I couldn't live with that!

When my dog is up at my father's farm, he walks down his 3/4 mile driveway about 1/3 of the way, and does his business in the tall grass, and always in the same spot. My dog in not tied at the farm and never leaves the yard without me and doesn't bother any of the farm animals.

This gives my dog a lot of freedom, and me with seldom cleaning up after him.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.
