      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 .

Invisible Fence with GSP's?

Recommended Posts

cabinfever

Hey Everyone,

We are moving into another house this weekend, that has huge yard. Do any of you use Invisible Fence to contain your GSP(s). How well does it work for this particular breed?

BTW - My 9 month just jumped a 4 foot fence yesterday. Any tips on preventing this in the future?

Thanks!

I used one of these when my GSP was a pup. He learned real fast that he could go thru fast enough that it would be a quick shock but then was afraid to come back threw fot the shock again. Also a big problem down the road was that that system had a warning beep in the collar before he got shocked. Then for hunting a beeper collar is worthless because he associates it with getting shocked.

It was also real hard to do retrieving training because he would think twice about going close to the fence, so I had to make sure my throws were away from it sometimes I would actually have to go get it myself(defeating my purpose) and rethrow.

Also My GSP is rather tall and has learned to go over a 6 foot fence. So in short he doesn't go out by himself for ant extended periods. If he has time to get bored He's gone.

I found out that the invisible fence is more about the training than the beeping/shocking.We put those little white flags around our yard and every body in the family took turns training.Just bring the pup out to the line of flags and scold NO NO NO and chase back to the house.Repeat over and over again.Then gradually start taking out the white flags one at a time.pretty soon your dog won't even want to near that NO NO No area.Our dogs don't even wear the collars anymore.Like I said though it's more about the training and discipline than the the collar.Good Luck !!

First off, I wish they wouldn't call them a fence. That gives people the impression that they are something that you can just plug in it's there. It is a training system and it will only work as good as the training you put into it. Just like any thing else with your dog. Electronics are not a cure all...just a tool. I have a lab and a springer and have had no problems...again....don't skip the ground work. Before you even turn the switch on your dog should know the boundries....the collar will just remind him when you are not there or when there is a distarction.
