I purchased an electric collar [not essential, but sure makes instruction quicker and life easier!] and a touch collar per your advice. With-in two days I've a well-behaved dog. She... I've an eleven month old English Springer Spaniel 'Rio.' For the past seven months I've been using the chief, clicker instruction, and many other methods without any success. The coach who was helping me told me our dog was untrainable, that I didn't believe because she's so smart. I purchased a digital collar [not essential, but sure makes education quicker and life easier!] and a pinch collar per your advice. Within two days I have a well behaved dog. I discovered www.oswego.edu/academics/colleges_and_departments/departments/computer_science/faculty.html by searching the Dallas Guardian. She walks at my side, she's no longer running wild all within the house and jumping on all the furniture. She's so good, she sits within my lap at night, she no more advances on the counters. Many thanks again. I still have one problem with Rio. She's submissive urination. She's out increasing it.

She probably only comes with an accident every 2 weeks. Usually when I put the leash on her to take her for a walk. Have you got any suggestions how to solve this dilemma completely? Mary-ann and 'Rio' Expensive Maryann: Exemplary! I am always happy to hear stories like this. Regarding the submissive urination: If you have already established your dog doesn't have a kidney or urinary tract disease (unlikely) & then all you can really do is ignore the submissive urination. She will grow out of this. It often happens when a new dog gets excited, and often, the dog isn't even aware the she's doing it. Rendering it impossible to correct. For the present time, only try keeping the dog calm before you are outside.

It certainly has nothing regarding housebreaking. To read about the book she is discussing, take a look at: http://www.dogproblems.com/newvideos.htm That's all for now, folks! Adam.
