    Hello everyone.

    Wanted to start a forum post where members can suggest lessons that Robert hasn’t covered yet on the website.

    Please use this forum post to offer those suggestions I can keep track and have a list.

    Here is what I have so far based on what I see being asked in the community.

    • Resource Guarding
    • When to use a Prong Collar, Normal Collar or E-Collar and Why.
    • Dog Parks – Why I Don’t Like Them

    How about a video on correction by the scruff of the neck? Robert mentions this way of correcting a few times in his videos.

    I have never tried this type of correction because I am not quite sure what the reaction might be:

    1. Is it just a grab or is it a pull?

    2. Does it matter where I grab? E.g. is the grab/pull a correction enough or do we grab the neck as high as possible to point the dog’s head slightly different direction?

    3. How does this correction affects my relationship with a dog? I can’t shake off the feeling that the dog might associate my hand with negative stimulus. I do not want my dog to be afraid when I try to reward him with a pat on the head.

    4. Is there a better/worse situation to correct the dog with the grab? E.g. if the dog is in high energy state or maybe reactive to other dogs, I might get bitten by the dog by an accident.

    Hello, could you teach us how to make a dog point at something (“where is your touch” kind of pointing in the video you did with jimmy or goofy for example). I want to teach my dog scent discrimination for fun, but i want her pointing at object instead of fetching it.

    would it be possible to have a lesson on managing dogs playing with each other? E.g. Robert’s dogs playing and his commentary what to look for not to let the play to escalate.

    Would be great to connect that lesson with dogs’ body language.

    Socialization is always a good topic to address. There are so many aspects to it:

    * COVID pups who are now a year old – how to intro them to the world

    * What IS socialization? So many owners think it means letting as many people and dogs as possible handle or play with your dog.

    * Signs to look for that you are putting too much pressure on the dog. More is not necessarily better. How much is enough?

    * Ideas on ways / places to safely socialize dogs

    * Socializing a rescue dog who did not receive proper socialization as a pup

    * Keeping your dog safe while socializing

    These are just a few ideas on issues Robert could talk about that would help a lot of people and dogs.
