  "Sir, you repay my slight services with too much gratitude. If MissKatherine Plowden has not become under my guardianship all that her goodfather, Captain John Plowden, of the Royal Navy, could have wished adaughter of his to be, the fault, unquestionably, is to be attributed tomy inability to instruct, and to no inherent quality in the young ladyherself. I will not say, Take her, sir, since you have her in yourpossession already, and it would be out of my power to alter thearrangement; therefore, I can only wish that you may find her as dutifulas a wife as she has been, hitherto, as a ward and a subject."
Competitive Obedience is a sport, and has been such since the early fifties. People probably get involved in Obedience in the first place through Dog Training Clubs. Not all people who go to DTC’s are there to train their dogs for competition (in fact only a small proportion go on to this), the majority only going to give their dogs basic obedience and ‘socialisation’ with other dogs.
The leash or lead is used to connect the dog to the handler, lead the dog, as well as to control the dog in urban areas. Most communities have laws which prohibit dogs from running at large. They may be made of any material such as nylon, metal or leather. A six-foot length is commonly used for walking and in training classes, though leashes come in lengths both shorter and longer. A long line (also called a lunge line) can be 3 metres (ten feet) or more in length, and are often used to train the dog to come when called from a distance.
  The amicable order of the young lieutenant, which was delivered afterthe stern, quick fashion of his profession, operated on the cluster ofdark figures that were grouped around the door like a charm; and as themen whom Barnstable had led followed their shipmates into the courtyard,the room was now left to such only as might be termed the gentlemen ofthe invading party, and the family of Colonel Howard.
  "Edward Griffith, I will not, I cannot say how humiliating it is tothink that you can, for an instant, believe I would again forget myselfso much as to wish to desert him whom God has given me for a protector,for one chosen by my own erring passions. And you, Andrew Merry! Learnto respect the child of your mother's sister, if not for her own sake,at

Effective dog training does not require many items, but there are a few basic supplies that will help make the process more convenient and effective. Choose a dog collar or harness that is suitable and comfortable for your dog. Then decide which dog leash is best for training. A retractable leash is not appropriate for dog training. You will also need dog training treats that your dog enjoys and are easy to eat quickly so the reward is more immediate. There are plenty of great treats available at pet stores or you can also use something you make at home, like small pieces of plain cooked chicken or turkey.
  He had not done speaking, before the shrill whistle of a boatswainrose gradually on the ears of the listeners, until the sense of hearingbecame painfully oppressed by the piercing sounds that rang underthe arched roof of the hall, and penetrated even to the most distantrecesses of the abbey. A tremendous rush of men followed, who drove inbefore them the terrified fragment of Borroughcliffe's command, that hadheld the vestibule; and the outer room became filled with a dark mass ofhuman bodies.
Submissive urination is a normal way for your puppy to demonstrate submissive behavior. Even a dog that is otherwise housetrained may leave dribbles and puddles of urine at your feet when greeting you. Excitement urination with a puppy is usually caused by lack of bladder control. The puppy is not aware that he is urinating; he's just excited and any punishment will only confuse him.

Dog intelligence is exhibited in many different ways, and a dog that might not be easy to train might nonetheless be quite adept at figuring out how to open kitchen cabinets or to escape from the yard. Novice dog owners need to consider a dog's trainability as well as its energy level, exercise requirements, and other factors before choosing a new pet. Very high intelligence is not necessarily a good thing in a companion dog, as smart dogs can require extensive daily mental stimulation if they are not to become bored and destructive.
I'm on disability, I ordered the course and also paid for monthly membership thing. Thought it was my phone, that it wouldn't bring up any of the sites I received. After $150 plus $37 elite members fee,still no access to anything. I tried to let them know I coudn't bring stuff up.Fraudulent charges on card,so card is temporally frozen. Then I get text monthly payment not going thru,called and they were supposed to return my call. GOT CANCLED, (Ok by me I guess after seeing the other reviews)won't get my money back, but no more charges either!!!! I did receive the paper back book though,verry expensive paper back at that price! Any way hope others have better luck, me im an IDIOT, and in dept for something I believed could help. Good thing for other reviews, I will cancel frozen card and get new one so no more fraudulent charges can be made,it won't exist anymore. As to that a big THANKS, good luck to anyone else and as for the company , carma sucks.
  "Here appears to be some mistake." said Barnstable, who participated,however, in no trifling degree, in the embarrassment of the abashedboy; "but, like all other mistakes on such subjects, it can be explainedaway, I suppose. Mr. Griffith, it remains for you to speak--damn it,man," he whispered, "you are as dumb as a codfish--I am sure so finea woman is worth a little fair-weather talk:--you are muter than afour-footed beast--even an ass can bray!"
  "Well, then, Griff, I pity you, from my soul. I would rather have had asharp struggle for the happiness that I shall now obtain so easily, thanthat you should be thus cruelly disappointed. But you cannot blame me,my friend, that I avail myself of fortune's favor. Miss Plowden, yourfair hand. Colonel Howard, I return you a thousand thanks for the careyou have taken, hitherto, of this precious charge; and believe me, sir,that I speak frankly, when I say, that, next to myself, I should chooseto entrust her with you in preference to any man on earth."

  She turned, and rejoined her cousin with such an air of maidenlyresentment as a young woman would be apt to discover, who found herselfthe subject of matrimonial arrangement without her own feelings beingat all consulted. Barnstable, who knew but little of the windings ofthe female heart, or how necessary to his mistress, notwithstanding herprevious declarations, the countenance of Cecilia, was to any decidedand open act in his favor, stood in stupid wonder at her declaration.He could not conceive that a woman who had already ventured so much insecret in his behalf, and who had so often avowed her weakness, shouldshrink to declare it again at such a crisis, though the eyes of auniverse were on her! He looked from one of the party to the other, andmet in every face an expression of delicate reserve, except in those ofthe guardian of his mistress, and of Borroughcliffe.


Prong collars (also called 'pinch collars') are a series of chain links with blunted open ends turned towards the dog's neck. The design of the prong collar is such that it has a limited circumference unlike slip collars which do not have a limit on how far they can constrict on a dog's neck. The limited traction of the martingale chain combined with the angle of the prongs prevents the prongs moving close enough to pinch. The collar is designed to prevent the dog from pulling by applying pressure at each point against the dog's neck.
I PURCHASED YOUR PROGRAM ON MAY 2018. IT SAID ON YOUR WEBSITE THAT I COULD SIGN UP FOR $1.00 FOR 3 DAYS TO TRY IT OUT AND IF I WANTED TO KEEP IT I WOULD BE CHARGED $37. SO I SIGNED UP AND TRIED IT. IT DID NOT WORK FOR ME SO I CANCELLED WITHIN 2 DAYS. WHEN I CANCELLED THERE WAS NO CANCELLATION NUMBER OR CONFIRMATION NUMBER GIVEN. BUT IT DID SAY THE ACCOUNT WAS CANCELED. NOW 3 MONTHS LATER AS I LOOK THROUGH MY CREDIT CARD STAMENT I SEE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN CHARGING MY CREDIT CARD THE $37. I CALLED MY CREDIT CARD COMPANY AND THEY REFUND THE TOTAL AMOUNT. ON TODAY I LETTER FROM MY CREDIT CARD COMPANY SAYING THEY ARE TAKING THE MONEY OUT AGAIN. FIRST OF ALL I FIND IT REALLY SHADY THAT YOU DO NOT GIVE A CONFIRMATION ON CANCELLATIONS, YOU DONT EVEN ABIDE BY YOUR OWN 120 day 100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE. "WOW". I WOULD LIKE TO RECEIVE A REFUND OF MY MONEY.
Just as a child needs a caring parent; an athletic team needs a coach; your puppy needs a leader and a clear social hierarchy. If you do not take up the role of leader, your dog will; and you will end up with an unruly, disobedient dog. Many people try to win their new puppy's love by letting the puppy always have its way. Buckets of affection is a wonderful thing for most puppies, but it must be tempered with respect.
