Ok, after this weekend I do NOT understand how people go out every
weekend and party. I had a party at my house that ended up with us going to a club. It was fun and stuff, but sheesh, I’m still exhausted! I gotten the kitchen back in order, but now I have to tackle the pile of laundry. On the plus side, Jenna was introduced to a lot of people and did very well.

*gasp* It’s a fearful dog with a shock collar and a prong collar with a flexi leash! The horror! such stressed. much anxious.wow
Do you hate me now? do you?

But why

I don’t know if you seen some of the drama from yesterday but I decided to give some people out there all their hated things all together. Because maybe that would finally shock them enough to where some common sense will appear in their brain and they’ll learn to be civil with each other. You know like the whole “Treat others the way you would want to be treated”? Not you, of course. You seem pretty chill from what I’ve seen.Honestly, I would’ve given her a bow too but then she would’ve looked really scared.

I don’t understand how posting this picture and taunting +R trainers remedies your concerns, though.  This appears to be the exact thing you’re upset about.
Personally, I see a stressed out dog in this picture.  Her lip is curled upwards, her ears are pushed back, and her eyes are wide. She also appears to be tensed, but I can’t tell that for sure from a photo. Of course this is just a snippet of the dog’s behavior captured in a photo—but I don’t see a happy dog. 
Maybe it would help if you explained your reasoning a little more.  What use do these tools provide to an anxious dog? How do any of these things help a dog feel LESS anxious?
On another point—why do you think this would help people think more calmly and clearly?   

I don’t want them to think calmly and clearly. I want them angry. I want them so angry, they stop themselves and go “Why am I getting so worked up because of a picture on the internet?” I want to established how crazy it is for grown human beings to take so much offense to something so stupid, so trivial and childish that they feel compelled to comment on something where they don’t know anything beyond that picture. I’m not just taunting +R trainers by the way. Anybody that uses a prong collar correctly should get angry as well but did you notice not a single one of them has commented/reblogged?I have 8 pictures and numerously posts talking about the e-collar with Isis and I don’t get any controversy on them. And yes, they are even in the dog training tag. The moment I put a prong collar and flexi on her in addition to her e-collar and then seemingly made a challenge, everybody loses their minds.Now, how do these tools provide a less anxious dog? I’ve seen prong collars immediately calm dogs down when used correctly. I believe they are able to press certain pressure points in the dogs neck. I’ve used the e-collar with Isis for a couple of months because she’s has a extreme problem with the leash being on. Using the e-collar calms her down because she isn’t worried about being forced to be stuck within 6ft of me. She’s 75% better than she was before. But I digress Isis herself is not the point of this or actually about these tools. I just used an attention getter and by golly it worked.And yes, Isis is stressed. She’s nearly always stressed and anxious that’s exactly why I choose her for this picture. Perception is everything and ya’ll are seeing exactly what I wanted you to see. You can see the pictures I posted on clickerdogtraining’s blog and the explanation I give as to why she is stressed in this picture. Add to the fact life itself is stressful. If it wasn’t, we would all be dead. So go on get angry or don’t, I couldn’t care less. I just know I don’t give my opinion on any type of tool unless there is a direct question for it because I learned that lesson a long time ago. And many of the dog community on tumblr and everywhere else still need to learn it.  ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓Below is exactly the lesson ya’ll need to learn  ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓  ↓ ↓


Wow. You make an excellent point. When I first saw this picture, as someone who isn’t against using prong collars, I instantly thought a flexi leash was a bad idea and after seeing the long text posts after it, I thought “oh great, another freaking argument,” but then I read it and I’m glad I did! When I first got into the “dog training” side of Tumblr I argued and read the arguments and got all frustrated and flustered. I even took a break from Tumblr because it bothered me so bad. When I was at school one of my instructors said “if there is anything two dog trainers can agree on, it’s what the other is doing wrong.” Boy, have I found that to be true.

where do you work? i thought you did photography as a job!

I do do photography as a job. Sadly, photography generally works in seasons since I only do outdoor shoots and it gets too hot in the summer. While I do shoots in the summer, they are very few and not nearly enough to pay for my house and Charlie’s board.

Anyway back to your question, I work at a veterinary clinic. I only work there two days a week though, as I have a secondary income and the other girls need the hours more than I do.  I love the job soooo much. It’s made me realize that I really do want to work with animals in the future, which means I’ll probably open a dog daycare/boarding/training/grooming facility in the future (as well as a pet store). 

This is likely my last month there though, it’s too long a drive for very little money. I’ll probably start working at my college library in the fall, which saves me a drive, is a more flexible schedule and I’ll earn the same amount of $/hr. :D

Let’s go into business together! :D

Yassss! Seriously my dream business partner would be someone like you! Haha I really want to do this in the long run, I just have to figure out my life first :D Which reminds me,
haleysolo
don’t you want to open a petstore too?

I totally get that! I would love to have a business partner, I almost moved to Wisconsin to go into business with a friend up there, but that didn’t pan out. It’s so frustrating not to have any friends here that don’t understand “dog talk” haha!

I hear ya. I have no existing dog friends in Florida and it’s pretty depressing, I make due with tumblr though haha. Or at least I try to, it’d be nice to have someone to talk to in person. I really do wish I had someone other than my family with whom I could go into business with that actually understood dog talk.

The plan is to move to a dog friendly city in a few years when I graduate and go from there.  

Nice! I kind of have this dream to open a indoor dog park/training center in a bigger city!
