      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 .

Am I ruining......

Recommended Posts

Luci?

Late at night after I get off work I take her to the park that is a couple blocks away. It is about the size of one city block and has cut grass. At night there are rabbits all over the place. I take Luci there and let her chase them freely to get some exercise. It doesn't take long because they scatter so quickly.

Do you think this is giving her the wrong idea or ruining her as far as the control in the field issue??
Thanks, Tim

As long as you can whistle the dog off the bunnies and remain in control, I see no harm. I have been using situations like this to work on control with my lab. I started with a check cord, but now I seldom need it.

I would think a young dog chasing wabbits would seem cute right now but what about mid October? Hunted with a buddy whose GSP pointed old mouse nests. Maybe fun for her in the summer when the mice streamed out of them. Pretty frustrating in the fall.

I can whistle her off and she'll come back to heel position.....so I don't know.

Maybe its not bad. I guess i'll know in about a month when I start working her at the farm.

Mayfly,

Bryce is correct in saying your dog will possibly start pointing and trailing rabbits, squirels, mice, etc.... she will not know the difference come this fall.

Teach her that Rabbits, deer, etc.. are not what you are hunting or you will regret it later.

I forgot to mention that whistling her off may seem ok but what if she is on point and you do not know what she is pointing, then you whistle her back to heel and it was a pheasant.

She will then be so confused to what you have trained her to do.

It sounds like she has the obedience to overcome this situation so good luck...

Appreciate the replies as always! Maybe i'll just avoid the rabbits and then I don't have to care.
