    Be prepared! Whatever you do don't slack off in training or else you will have a not-housebroken, outdoor dog that no one likes but feels obligated to feed...Get a shock collar that allows you to give your dog a warning or a shock when necessary (I'm not kidding, they work great)

    On the other hand, there's still a hope: I bet monkeys won't understand inheritance, they just play around with the mouse.

    Here's a proof of how dummy they are (monkey code follows)
    Code:
    ...
    mov ax, bx
    mov bx, 0
    cmp ax, 0
    jz @exit
    ...
    I'd optimize this code this way:
    Code:
    ...
    mov ax, bx
    xor bx, bx
    or ax, ax
    jz @exit
    See, I'm superior to monkeys!! :P

    q.e.d.

    Shock collar? If you think training with a shock collar is good, you have NO freaking idea whatsoever how to train a damn dog!

    Rant rant. Poor misguided shock collar users. Jesus. Train with kindness if you want a genuine trained dog.

    Besides, this is my boy. He is 4 now (a bit grey)..This Ridgeback wouldve ripped your spine off if you kept shocking him. As he is, he is totally obedient and I have total faith in him. Enjoy.

    Trust me a shock collar works well to tell the dog what hes doing is wrong without it realizing you are punishing him. We rarely use the shock anyways since it has a warning "beep" that usually works fine

    Trust you? Nah.

    I have had a fair share of dogs, all trained highly with kindness.

    Trust me on this one then-I would never truly trust a dog that was trained another way. Quite simply they never forget.

    My boy sticks his tongue out at you for suggesting such harshness.

    That's what I thought! Gotta be in large part due to the eyes, but I think the shape and color of the landscape also helps.
