Forum rules and guidelines: TRAINING & BEHAVIOR, Please Read BEFORE Posting!
This Post is to remind our members that this forum is a PR/non-aversive/non-compulsion forum. It is perfectly acceptable to DISCUSS different training methods when not directed as advice to a training/behavior question . It is NOT acceptable to recommend, any training method/tool/technique that relies on Fear/intimidation/pain/force on this forum. The Dogs-forum team reserves the right to make judgment calls as to what is harmful. Generally prohibited advice/tools include, but is not limited to: poking, smacking/hitting, leash jerks or tugs, pushing, stern verbal corrections, grabbing muzzles, pinching gums/tongue/mouth/ears, stepping on paws, spray bottles, air horns, penny cans, chains in bags, shock collars, prong collars, choke collars, flooding, alpha rolling, and "invisible" electric fences.
ANYONE CONTINUING TO ADVISE SUCH METHODS WILL BE SUBJECT TO DISCIPLINE, AS SEEN FIT, BY THE DOG FORUM TEAM. PLEASE SEE:
The Dog Forum Rules
The Dog Forum Infraction Policy
When posting in the behavior section, please remember that all advice given is for general guideline purposes only and it's up to you, the dog's owner, to assess whether you are capable of fixing the behavior issues at home through consistent training, or if you are 'over your head' and should consult with a professional trainer or behaviorist. The Dogs-Forum.com team reserves the right to make judgment calls as to what is harmful advice.Physically aversive methods should not be recommended on an internet forum.
If your dog’s behavior has escalated to the point of biting and drawing blood, the internet is not where you should be.It is the responsibility of the dog owner to prevent bites from happening and should your dog bite someone else you could be held civilly ($) and criminally (jail) responsible, and your dog may be euthanized. It is for the seriousness surrounding dog bites that we, The Dogs-Forum.com Team, will again make a judgment call and may close/remove/edit a thread once your dog has bitten someone, even yourself. Home interventions may have worked before the bite, but it is the general consensus that you find a professional trainer and/or behaviorist to help you solve the problem-BEFORE someone gets seriously hurt.

I used to have one, but she died 8 months ago. She is 1 in 5 of the World’s Rarest Dog Breeds. By the way. How do you think about this list?
