I Am Shiba.

Dedicated to momentary thoughts and musings of A Shiba Inu.

Obedience Class, Day 1


"You have a breed of dog who is independent and uninterested in what you have to say. You have to become the most important thing in your dog's life for that moment to get her to listen to what you are asking."

That was what came out of the lesson regarding how That Guy and Belle-chan are going to learn how to work together.

In our class, the following was present:

1 Shiba who attempted to kill any dog that entered her personal space bubble
1 Golden Retriever who sniffed my butt
1 Weimaraner/ Vizula mix who figured out how to leap onto the table to grab the treats.
1 One Poodle mix who never stopped barking
1 Mixed breed who looks like an evil dog that lives down the road from us but is about 8 years younger

and of course, myself, who watches it all with the stoic calmness that all Shibas should bring to an public event.

The big issue with Belle-chan for the day was to help That Guy find ways of getting her through being distracted by the other dogs. She has to practice being focused on him (That Guy pointed out that none of the dogs were focused on their People but as was pointed back, yes, but their dogs are not attempting to take command of the entire room). The solution became a Greenie, which we let her chew for a few minutes, then took away, then allowed to chew again, rinse and repeat. Her attention was focused on that, and then JL when he was holding it.

So we need to buy the really HUGE ones in order to keep her occupied.

There were some interesting reminders for The Woman that came out from the class:

1. Don't repeatedly call your dogs name or give the same command. Say it once.

2. Reward immediately.

And it quickly became apparent that She sucks at remembering to use the clicker to mark out behaviors but we know what she wants anyway.

But most importantly, we are a breed that shall remain independent. You have to work to become the most important thing in our lives, not vice versa.



I Am Shiba. I Am The Calm Amidst The Storm.

What an interesting mix of group...just like in my neighborhood. Yeah, I know about the yakking poodle and the guy who'd jump on the table to get the treats.

I'm sure your stoick presence was felt by all, The Shiba-sama.

1. For STRICT Whitehat sites, it is advised to create buffers to pass on linkjuice. i.e. social bookmarks, cloaked pages etc.

Using buffers are 100% safe, speaking from experience.

It is your responsibility whether you will join or not. There are lots of sports betting websites that offers free registration and offers also free points to attract newcomers. You are also not restricted; you can place your bet wherever you are; Some website are customized to suit your language and understand the things and happenings on the game, also included the cash converted to your currency, so you know how much you bet or the equivalent of your bet on your currency. But then again, as you enjoy the online sports betting, you are responsible on what might be the outcome of your transactions online.

You would bet your $110 against the spread on the Chargers to win and cover (win by 3 or more points), and $110 for a total score of 44-points and a total wager of $220. If the Chargers roll to a 31-20 victory and you have won both of your bets. The Chargers 11-point margin of victory was more than enough to cover the spread of 3 points needed to get the win for $100. A total score of 51-points at the end of the game also means you have won your over/under bet for another $100 stack. http://www.pulsebet.com/bg/ http://www.pulsebet.com/da/ http://www.pulsebet.com/de/ http://www.pulsebet.com/es/ http://www.pulsebet.com/fr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/gr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/jp/ http://www.pulsebet.com/nl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pt/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ro/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ru/ http://www.pulsebet.com/se/ http://www.pulsebet.com/it/ http://www.pulsebet.com/cn/
