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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
