    Really? Clothes hangers! We can't keep an unbroken one in the house. Too funny, glad to know I'm not alone!

    Ali, my first (of two) Af's was my heart dog.

    Side note (since I've already side tracked the thread!!!) we are thinking of adding to our family, and an Afghan is on the short (very short) list. I'm finding that it's next to impossible to find a puppy! If anyone has a recommendation, please inbox me.

    This reminds me of Halloween night when we took Cleo out with us and people either loved all over her (I'm talking grown men sitting on the ground and just letting her crawl all over them and lick them-seriously, twice!!) or pulled their kids away in a hurry trying to protect them. You know how many times I had to explain 'no, she's not a viscous dog, she always sounds like that'?

    Judging a dog based on it's breed is ridiculous. As a trainer...she would never get away with saying to a pitbull owner "your dog will bite". She shouldn't be allowed to judge...you have the same right as any other person there and you deserve the same respect. With that being said........typically, yes......bulldogs are food motivated. When we had Vegas in training class...the instructor was a bulldog owner. When we were trying to put Vegas thru a tunnel....he wouldn't go. Sarah, the instructor, told me the reward wasn't good enough. She told me I had to up the reward to make it worth conquering a fear of his....the tunnel. Sure enough...she goes to the fridge and pulls out a treat that made him jump....thru the tunnel. Again and again and again. In this case..the trainer was right.

    I agree, try to get your money back the trainer probably didn't have any experience with EBDs, or at least limited experience. Amber is my first EBD and I can say she can be obessive with her toys, she loves to play with them and get you to play with her. She is full of energy and I have found this breed to be simply amazing. She goes with the flow and fits in with whatever we are doing; she demands that she fits in, she is not going to be left out of the action. I have bought toys that Amber just doesn't care for no matter what I do. She hates the nylon bones but give her an antler and she is going to chew on it until she gets tired. Some people just don't care what they say or how what they say impacts other people. From your post, it does sound like you have a rather good handle on training, we are just getting to roll over with Amber and it is taking some work. Lol; she only relates to belly rubs right now. Good luck.

    I am really sorry you have had to go through this. Our Buster is set to graduate his beginner's class on 11/17/12. He is the star of his class and outshines all of the other dogs there. Kind of funny you post this because this last Saturday I had asked in the class about the "leave it" part of the final test and the trainer said that I really don't need to worry about him because he is a Bulldog he will only end up doing one of two things in his life, eatting and sleeping. Of course everyone in the class got a good laugh. I think that most of these trainers, especially the ones that charge such outrageous fees feel as if they know everything and so they act and say the things they do. I have gotten really offended in the past when people say that Bulldogs are dumb and that they are not the smartest dogs around. Of all the dogs I have ever known or had the privilege of having been adopted by, save Pugs, Bulldogs are by far the smartest and are extremely keen to people that don't care for them. Sad that some trainers feel they are so much better then us lowly Bulldog peeps.
