We'll that's what my trainer bellowed at me last saturday, I honestly found myself welling up :cry:

He asked us to put our dogs into a 2minute stay. I sat rox asked her to stay then timed it.......So did Emma with Daisy. We did a full 2 min stay :D......Then HE came over and shouted..."why are you just standing there, walk away from your dogs don't just stand there!" So we reposition the dogs in a stay...walked away and Rox moved so I put her back in stay...same was happening for Emma except daisy run the circuit saying hi to all the other dogs on her way back to me!.... 3 time this happened before he really shaouted at me and Emma :cry: He said "Your dogs have just walked all over you both....3 times, they got up and you kept putting back in a stay...You prize pratts, idiots! why keep putting them back in a stay when they get up a walk away? ...... I just looked at the floor while Emma argued with him....I just couldn't see where I had gone wrong :(

He told us to go home and work on our stays, but what are you suppose to do if a dog breaks her stay? I was to angry to approach him :lol:


On a good note Marlee had her first lesson that morning too, and she did so well, infact she was better then most of the pups which have been there for weeks :) he did a puppy play at the end, which we had to randomly break away with a recall which i thought was cool.....altho Marlee wan't too keen on playing, she wanted them to submit to her, she stood there in a stance sniffing the air, insteading of playing....The trainer walked around assessing the dogs on how they interacted, he didn't seem to bothered that most of the pups around Marlee were on their backs :lol:
Your trainer is a tiny-weenied ass! Why give a bully your money.

1. If your dog breaks a long stay when you walk away it is simply because he is not ready to be challenged at that leve. Go back to toes to toes and proof him there. Then go to the end of your leash and proof him there.

2. If your dog breaks his stay say nothing, give him not attention. Go back, make loope (walk around yourself, for example), re-position. Ask for a stay then stay there yourself.

ARRRRR I despise butthead trainers.

Maybe he just had a bad day or something....

When I was training my dogs and we were doing stays, they told me to put them back in a stay and start over.
He is very belittling, many ppl leave. But in this weeks class we had new members. We had a couple there with two sister staffies....you could see they were labrador owners not staffies.....and I guess him working for the RSPCA as an assessor of the dogs before they get rehomed, he could see one of these staffies haven't to be given up :( It makes me crazy that they didn't research into what they bought too.

But he is mean and harsh with us at times, normally I ask him what I did wrong and he shows me with Roxy.
I'm sorry but why are you paying for someone to treat you badly? Look at what you said " He IS MEAN AND HARSH....'

and yet you're still there? Why exactly? Is he the only trainer where you are or something? Frankly when someone treats me like sh*t I don't ask what I did wrong as though I deserved to be disrespected. I am more likely to tell you to bite me.
