in the dog house

Well that's it i have officially been sent to Coventry by Keasha

I have got that sick of her nearing pulling my arm out of socket when I take her out for a walk so I have brought out her gentle leader head collar and she absolutely hates it..... that much that she has chosen to lie in the hall and ignore us all.

I bought the collar months ago... tried it on her and she went crazy so i took it off and put it away, never to been seen again until today that is.

Does anyone else use these collars??

How long does it take for them to get used to them?

Re: in the dog house

If its the same collar I am thinking about, or it may be similar I think to the cannie collar, with the noose going over nose and they have the collar part on as normal. this is the only way I can walk my two, else I would have no arms. Molly jumps and rubs against me almost taking my legs away for at least the first five mins of the walk, then they both continue looking really downtrodden along the way, on the very rare occasion I have managed to take the noose part off and she is fine, but very rare. I think if I took them out more often on this lead they would get use to it quicker but my hubby has them at his work all day and he just use ordinary leads but can cope with pulling, so keep at it, wish he would use them.

That sounds like something I need. Gixer pulls my arm out of it;s socket constantly but my other half can cope with it. Gixer made me so annyed yesterday as he let my 4 yr old great neice walk him for a few minutes (under close supervision I add!!) and he didn;t pull at all - looks like I might have to borrow her for walkies

Re: in the dog house

they always surprise us dont they:jump:

I spoke to a man yesterday outside my work who had a labrador with him.... a very obedient one at that, and i said "god i wish my girl would come back to me when i shouted on her", his advice was to take her out every night at her tea time and take her food with me in a bag...for the first couple of times go to somewhere that she cant get too far and feed her when i shout on her and she comes back, her complete meal, change locations daily and he thinks after a week she will be a recall champion :excited:

Im not sure about this.... i have my doubts, Keashas too excited to eat when shes out

Re: in the dog house

Tizzy is my puller and I have tried all sorts. She hated the Halti I had for her (we tried the gentle leader but it didn't fit her right)

With Tizzy I have to say we use the rattle bottle. Often I am not fit enough to have her dragging me and I don't have the strength to pull her back etc.

We give a quick shake of the rattle bottle as soon as the lead goes tight and she drops back into line. That lasts for about 4 months and then we have a reminder session :wink:

Re: in the dog house

I took Keasha out for a walk yesterday with her halter on......and she walked like a proper little lady :banana:

I cheated though and took her over to my mums first so that she was tired after playing with my mums dog, and would hopefully walk better, which she did :thumbs:

I had to laugh though, it was nice here yesterday and a few of the neighbours were out in their gardens, I got the comments "nice to see your taking her for a walk, not the other way round, like usual" and "wow, are you just back from dog borstal"

So heres hoping we have turned a corner and found something that works:luck:

Re: in the dog house

Brilliant Shona,it doesnt matter that you got her tired out first,it was prob less stressfull that way.As you know ive got Bobby a sporn non-pull harness which is ok but i wouldnt say brill anyway i like it better than takin him on just his collar.
Maybe we can take them up through the woods one day?

Re: in the dog house

Well done on getting something to work for you. Rosie and Harvey are great. Katie I spoilt and she can pull like a steam engine. Oh, I can make her walk to heel when I want but for the most part I just let her get on with it. I used training harnesses.

Re: in the dog house

Went to take Keasha out today and her halter has been sabbotaged :vangry:

It seems she got hold of it and chewed the clip that attached it round her neck:nonono:

I thought i had nothing better to do than go to Pets at Home and buy another one, and they dont sell them anymore, so i had to make do with a different kind and we were back to square 1 because she hates it :dunno:

Mind you i did tell her all the way round on her walk that it was her own fault....she shouldnt have ate the other one :newtonguesmile:

Re: in the dog house

She was 2 in November, I took her back out with the new halter on and she was a little better, the test will be tomorrow when she goes to the vets for her booster because I take my mums collie with me to get hers as well, and they are always full of nonsense when they are out together:headbangers:

Im surprised the vets stills sends us a reminder for her booster, as he always rolls his eyes when he sees us:muhaha:
