Dog Training Collars and Harnesses -- Making the Proper Selection is Essential to Training Success
Dog Training Collars and Harnesses -- Making the Proper Selection is Essential to Training Success
 by: Armen T. Ghazarians
Dog training is an art, and like any artist you must pick your tools carefully in order to properly train your dog. Each dog is different, and thus you must be able to decide which collar is most appropriate for your dog based on its temperament, pesonality, and strength. Below, you will find a description of all the major varieties of dog training collars that you might come across when deciding to purchase one for you pooch.
The metal choke collar is perhaps the most popular and widely used collar in the dog training world. It should be used in training larger, stronger dogs that tend to take YOU for a walk.
The metal toggle choke collar is basically the same as you regular choke collar with the major difference being that you can correct you dog easily by using the toggle while your dog is off-leash.
The pinch collar should be used RARELY and only in situations where the choke collar is ineffective in controlling your dog (i.e. in situations where your dog is very strong, where its highly aggressive, and when it repeatedly lunges at other dogs and people).
The fur saver choke collar is designed to control the dog without leaving chain marks around the dogs' neck or getting fur caught in the chain which sometimes occurs when using an ordinary metal choke collar. It is mainly used when showing dogs and NOT in training them because the dogs don't tend to respond to them in training and they don't give the quick jerk needed for proper correction.
The nylon choke collar is best used in small dogs and puppies up to 3 months, because they tend to be more gentle and they tend to get young puppies used to wearing a collar.
The gentle head leader is best used on dogs that are more shy and easily corrected (i.e. dogs that respond quickly to your commands and dogs that tend to cringe upon your correction).
The electronic collar is mainly used for two reasons: first its used on field dogs (i.e. in bird hunting) and second it is used as a means of training the "out" command to a protection dog in its bite training phase.
The tracking harness is used for exactly what its name suggests: for tracking game, suspects, lost individuals, or competition articles.
And finally, the seeing eye dog harness is designed so that the dogs' owner can hang on to the lead while the dog guides her to her destination. Unlike other leads, this lead is designed so that the dog can pull its owner forward as it walks instead of gently walking beside her on loose lead.
In order to view pictures of the dog collars described above and for a more indepth discussion of each, please visit me at:.newdogtrainingscrets.com and select from a variety of articles on the topic in the November archive

Helloooo. I'm looking for friends of all kinds; kitties, humans, other furry critters, just no dogs. I think dogs are smelly and drool too much.

Hi all!

I hope this is allowed. I just wanted to invite some cat lovers to my new community kitty_palooza. I love cat pictures, and their stories, and though it would be a great place to share them. I hope to see some of you there! Thanks.

The Ultimate Cute-off: Two cat's enter, one cat leaves
...a loser; the other one gets the title of Cutest Cat in all the (well, our) Land

Okay, me and lev_cat are in this contest to decide, once and for all, who is the cutest (that would be me, of course). So, here is how it works: Both me and Lev will put pictures of ourselves in our journals. You gotta look at them both, then vote on who is cuter. Voting can be done in either of our journals (please don't vote here); the totals will be combined.
My beootiful pictures can be seen here.
Lev's stupid pictures can be seen here
Thank you for your votes!

There's a new cat community up called felinebehavior. It's a place to discuss your cat's strange behavior, be it curious, smart, comical, or just plain odd. Ask questions and discuss those unique feline behaviors that aren't necessarily problems, but get our attention.

I made this community because I've been part of a forum of the same nature that just seems to be dead now. I really enjoyed hearing about all these different cats' cute or quirky ways. I hope you'll all join and share your cats' with everyone. We can discuss solutions, laugh about the cute nature of your cat, or be there to support each other in those troubled times.

Jedi Master Yoda

Owner of the_dark_side

Image hosted by Photobucket.com


Hello. My name is Yoda. I'm two years old and I live with my pet, the_dark_side and her family. Mostly, I don't hang out with them, but they're always good when I need a lap to sit on or a scratch behind the ears. I mostly hang out in her room, but her parents' have this really great, really big bed that I like to sneak in and lay on when I can. They have two dogs that live there, too. Jack is my buddy. He's fun to play with. Milo, I'm not too sure about. He's pretty new. I don't know if I like him or not. I have to share ownership of the_dark_side with Felix. He a really grumpy, really wise 13-year-old cat. I suspect he has dealings with the local coyote population, because the cats he doesn't like have a habit of disappearing. Just recently, my pet seems to have gotten the impression that I needed a new buddy (because my friend Pippin disappeared), and brought home this little ball of fur called Puck. I'm not too sure what I think of her, yet. I lead a pretty cozy life. There are a lot of mothes and mice to chase around here. When I'm inside, I like sitting in the windows and watching all the creatures outside. I love taking rides in the car (when I'm not in a box).

Beep was found along EDSA walk in school at around 730am back in October 2004. It was raining and she was shaking and whimpering and scared to death. She was adopted and has been spoiled ever since.

First of all, while we are slightly changing the alternative book idea: If you would rather do the book as orignially suggested please email us with your address and we will send you additional information and start the Alternate Book Project as originally suggested. (We already have several people interested in this idea so we will still do this if you are interested in this project. :) )

If you would like to participate in both projects that is welcome as well. An update on the Alternate Book Project would be provided this week. :)

Information about the new project: The Pages Project.

Due to the enormous response and interest in this project we are contemplating an alternative idea to our original suggestion.

We're thinking that each person could mail to us their work, page or pages (any size, shape, color, anything they desire) and we will scan the pages as they arrive and post them. Creatively this allows you to use any media or medium that you want that can still be bound into a book. You can use notecards, any kind of paper, you could make a collage, or even make your own paper. 81/2 x 11 or smaller is recommended for binding reasons.

Since anybody could be sending us pages at anytime your identity will remain anonymous. We will give you our address so it will be both the mailing and return address. That will make it less expensive and faster.

Then at the end we will send everyone a complete pdf file of the project. Of course all the pages will be scanned on the livejournal anonymously and anybody can give feedback on each individual page. We will still assemble and bind the pages into a hardcover book if people are interested in having a copy of the book we will still do that for the cost of producing the book. (This way everyone would have a final copy either in the form of the pdf file or in the form of an actual book).

Based on the number of people already interested, alloting just ten days apiece for production time not counting mailing time it would be a year and a half before there was a final product if we followed the original plan. The final product would be a hard bound book.

We think people would like to see the work sooner. Also the people at the end of the book would not receive the book for an entire year or more.

For the first publication of the Pages Project the deadline is June 6th 2005.

If you are interested in being a part of the Pages Project please comment with your email address included and we will send you our address.

This would be an ongoing project so people who are newly interested can email us at midnight_confessions248 @ yahoo.com at anytime.

AGAIN:
If you would rather do the book as orignially suggested please email us with your address and we will send you additional information and start the Alternate Book Project as originally suggested.

If you would like to participate in both projects that is welcome as well. An update on the Alternate Book Project will be provided this week. :)

Hi, I hope that this is not against community rules.


Hi, I am advertising my community. Here is a little about us, please come and check us out and join if you are interested.

Journalling community whose focus is on alternative journalling books, that are sent to members for their contributions and then mailed to the next person. Anonymity will be preserved in every way possible. The purpose of the books is to provide people with an outlet by which they can voice their fears, desires, secrets, experiences, whatever they feel they can't normally share with people. This idea is loosely based on Post Secret (http://postsecret.blogspot.com/). There will be a minimum of two books circulating through the member pool so that it will be impossible for people to know who they received their book from or who they are sending it to. A place to be truly human, NOTHING, is off limits.

Kittylets..poopoo and other Quirks
Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Alas, another attempt at humanizing my sort. Do they actually expect that we'd prefer to flush over digging and covering? Seriously, what is cleaner and more...natural? Poop is meant to be returned to the earth and feed the soil and the trees and the cows you people eat. It's not meant to be in water. Ugh...and you're surprised why excrement floats around your beaches..If its normal for you guys to poop in water, then you can just imagine what the uneducated folk conveniently think when they see any body of water..

Anyway, we can expect to have quieter nights from now on. Yes, the weekend brought my brother and the other "toms" to the vet for the...circumsition ritual. As much as I feel rather bad that Ebenezer will forever remain a virgin and never even know the joys the others scream about each night, at least I'd get good sleep from now on. Come on, we felines are only entitled to about 14 hours of sleep.

However, that runt they call a shitzu (oh, they call it Dharma) seems to like shrieking or yelping or barking at night. If they call that barking.

Meowr.

Greetings fellow Kitties
I now have my own Live Journal and e-mail address. Woohoo! Now, my humans cannot refuse my demands for entering messages here because this is mine. My only problem is I don't know how to type and still have to demand my writing human to type my words here. But I have my own! and e-mail, too!
