And then they wonder why Fluffles is misbehaving? it just astonishes me how lacking in common sense some people are. If you can't be bothered to peel your butt off the sofa to entertain your dog at least once a day, don't get one!
Exactly! My sister in law is one of these. Then says she has a difficult dog and how lucky I am to have a well behaved dog. She just doesn't get it, she makes me so mad.

i hit the first one too. but my dogs have offlead exercise so they set the pace and are free to sniff, meet other dogs and basically enjoy their walk.

i do think exercise has alot to do with keeping your dog happy and healthy (plus it helps me too!) and it's a massive social event for them aswell.

i've never understood the logic behind making a dog walk on the lead without allowing it too sniff etc.

None of them. I feel you cannot include exercise because only an idiot would not exercise their dogs.

Oh, and not the CM exercise way either where they have to stay behind you and you are not supposed to let them stop and sniff and be a dog and god help them if they do because you're going to yank that choke chain.

I put exercise, but as others say I don't do it because of CM but because it's what we know and is common sense etc

It's a strange thread!

Someone said to me recently that pining a dog down is natural behaviour for dogs and that CM causes no pain when he does it.
But what about the fear?! Fear can be worse and longer lasting.

The more I see the man the more annoyed I get. HD really needs to take four years out to re-educate himself, IMO.

Sorry Mish I am going to say none .
It's a bit like saying 'which traits belonging to the murderer do you agree with' he is kind to his mother, feeds the birds, likes apple pie .

Well yes of course we all agree with those 'standard' things but I would still prefer to steer clear of him thanks because of the 'unspoken traits'

Well I ticked the first box, but then thats all you can tick at one time.

As ours are mainly off lead exercised they obviously get plenty, to our 7 miles they do around 12 miles.

I don't really like CM and I haven't got the patience to watch his programmes either he doesn't really do it for me I am afraid, I see nothing about (on the ones in the past that I have watched) which would suggest mental exercise, like agility, flyball, hide and seek, doing jobs, finding thier dish, fetching the letters etc.,

So I sort of figured giving a poke and doing ''sush''(or whatever that noise is he makes) probably wouldn;t really satisfied these
