Boxer Training and Behavior Issues / Re: Getting my dogs attention
« Last post by bte on Today at 10:11:36 AM »
I have a year and half old Boxer female. I have a problem with getting her attention. When i have her attention she listens GREAT! But the hard part is getting her attention, especially at long distances.
I have recently been told to use a zap collar for her, which i am not too keen about. So if anyone has any helpful tips please let me know! Thank you.

How long of a distance are you talking.... 15', 50', 100', etc

Tuffy toys are really great! We sell them at my work and everyone says they're pretty indestructible.

Sometimes food works, as she is very food oriented, and i used to shake the bag of cookies which always got her to come back to me but recently that hasn't been working. I will try a squeaky toy though. I really don't like shock collars and shes my baby, obviously i don't want to do that to her that's just what majority of people have suggested to me.

But i will definitely try squeaky toy or coins in a can. Thanks guys.

I will look forward to her becoming more mischievous:-)

We'll remind you of this statement later on.   :85: >:D 

God love these Boxers as I am being stared at with a toothy smile, whining and talking to me because she wants a treat.   :lol_hitting:

I have a positive update....it may only be short lived but we will take it! On recommendation from others, we got a second opinion from a holistic vet who will work with our primary. She did a full (2 hour examination and treatment) and discovered a pinched nerve and a spot in his spine and neck that were out of alignment. After acupuncture and an adjustment along with massage and the addition of a higher dose of Prednisone along with other herbal supplements to relax his muscles the screaming sound diminished significantly yesterday and is absent today. He is more alert and awake AND I am thrilled to say he actually trotted in the field for a bit (something he has not done in the month since this all started). I know that it could all be temporary but quality of life is what we are seeking and it gives me a tiny bit of hope and optimism for our guy!
