    Thanks guys, you have made me feel better about a very difficult decision. This morning I put it on and then started making breakfast. I had bacon and pancakes on the counters and while he did sniff, he never jumped. We had the remotes to the tv on the couch and I saw him going for them, just as he was going to put his mouth on it, I sent a tone, and he stops, looks around for the sound, and walks away. So far we were able to have a very relaxing evening last night and morning so far with our sweet loving boy. I have not used the shock component and hopefully I wont have to. I also want to add that he doesn't act afraid of the sound, just kinda puzzled by it. I hope through my experience with this I can help others. I know frankie is a good boy and we have gotten him through some really bad manners from his previous home, but the stealing of things is something we hit a wall with and just could not break through. I look forward to 100% enjoyment from my baby really soon and the collar will be a thing of the past. I really appreciate your support.
    My smooshy face boy!

    Agree with everyone - you did what had to be done for his own good. We all know you love him beyond words, and had I been in your position I would do the same thing! I hope this is the "thing" finally works for you guys. Sending positive vibes, and lots of hugs!

    I have one I use for our EB mix. The shock strangly doesn't faze him, maybe I'm a sissy and don't put it on a high enough setting. However, the vibe mode stops him immediately. I only started using the vibe because I hated the shock. I hated having to use the collar at all but as with you, things had just gotten to a point that I had to try something as nothing else was working. Good luck. I know you love your guy, that's the reason you are doing it.

    Gosh Rosalie, I'm so sorry that you are having to go thru this w/Frankie… and my goodness do NOT apologize. You are doing the best thing to keep your boy safe, we ALL know how much your love your boys. I'm just glad that is seems to be working… Do you have any idea why he is acting out?!! So weird how they seem to go thru fazes of doing things that they KNOW they are not supposed to be doing…

    I wouldn't exactly call it acting out. We cleaned up a lot of his bad behaviors but the stealing stuff and jumping on the counters and tables is somethibg we just cannot break. I could probably live with it but he is taking stuff that could hurt him. It is so bizzare though. Usually when we have someone over he has to be leashed because he jumps and gets over excited and it isn't really fun for anyone. Tonight maddies boyfriend was back for dinner and he jumped initially, but one tone and he hasn't jumped again. I swear it is like someone switched my dog!! Last week when this boy was over, we had the chicken cutlet incident, frankie stole the kids I Phone, and tried to eat his sneaker! Tonight, nothing!! I hope this continues.
    My smooshy face boy!

    On the lighter side...Frankie wanted to borrow the car, cruise chicks, and sniff butt.

    Glad the tone is working.

    We do what we have to do to keep them and ourselves safe. I wouldn't feel bad.
    In fact, I've considered it many times when Blue goes into his zone over toys. That zone where either he can't hear us, or he refuses to.

    That zone is exactly how Bella is around other dogs.
