      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

house breaking 1yr old springer

Recommended Posts

I...perhaps foolishly...agreed to do help my buddy out who just got a year old springer. The dog has always been outside. No training what so ever. It's a good, calm dog and I got him sitting the first day. This dog pees more than any creature I've ever seen. It's only been a few days and I still have plenty of pantience. I cant say the same for the old lady. So if anyone has tips to speed up the process she would be grateful.

HAS THE dog been crate trained yet? Maybe start with it - from my experience it helps. Also, I tried the "bell" method - that is when you take your dog outside you ring the bell and have them go to the bathroom.

Use the porta kennel. An older dog same as a puppy would prefer not to Go where it lays.

Marking is a different behavior so is it relieving itself or marking its new territory?

Sometimes No Chew will discourage marking but more often you need to break the habit. On a lead my sleddogs get an advance On By command but you might need a bit more reinforcement. When it goes to mark while on a lead give it a soft tap on the rump, it'll skoot forward forgetting to mark. Combine with On By then should be able to just use the command.

Springers are quick learners.

Thats what I decided to do. Back off and stick with the kennel training. so far so good. The dog doesn't mark its territory at all...its still squating to pee. And the beast also walks while still peeing...not the smartest dog I've ever worked with. But..he does listen well.

The more I work with this dog the more I realize he is kinda "special". Thank goodness its not my dog. He is coming along well with the obedience, but when hes just doing his own thing, its amazing how dumb this dog is. It's hysterical.
