Name recognition

At what age have your pups started responding to their names? Our pup knows "sit" and "heel", but he really doesn't respond when we say his name. He's 12 weeks old.

Do you give him treats if you call his name and he comes? Treating they will learn it a little faster. But he should be getting it soon.

When I picked out my dog I was at a girl friends parents house. She drove me back from bar late one night. She said she her parents dog had pups, and they were probably hiding in the barn. I hadn't never saw any of them before that night.

We shine the headlights of the car into the barn, I get out of the car and say "Brutus Come". A 7 week old pup comes barreling out of the barn at full spead to me. I grabbed a stick on the ground and threw it 10 or 15 feet he retrieved it and brought it right back.

So I have to say a good dog should know its name before you ever meet it.

This is a true story.

Whats his name? If it has too many sylables that can be difficult for them to understand. Emphasize one sylable... preferable the first. Many dogs with long names will only really recognize one syllable as their name.

Also if you call your dog other things then his name he may not know what to respond to.

There may not be enough reinforcement of his name. Limit the amount of words you use when talking to your dog and say its name more often.

Dogs speak with each other through only a handful of sounds... Growls, soft barks, load barks, whines and wimpers. A dogs name can mean alot of things depending on your tone of voice.

If he has heel down at 12 weeks he obviously doing quite well. It will come with time.

One syllable name, Floyd. I'm sure he'll get it. Part of it might be stubborness on his part.

    •     Well just in some of the data and articles I read, which might be fake news I don't really know. It looked like the amount/lbs of walleye were in the lake just that there are a lot of large ones and not many small ones.......The data also showed that the bait fish were really dropping in amounts/numbers.....   Interesting to see that a report from someone like yourself is just like I head from the guy I met at upper red. Thought maybe he was pulling my string or something when he told me the fishing was great, then seen the DNR shut the lake down.
    •   Thats the thing, I can't find really any good pictures of one. I was given this auger a few days ago buy a guy who didn't use or want it.  He only used it once when he forgot his power auger. There is a string with a price tag on it for $89. It was sitting in his machine shed in a corner collecting dust.   I cleaned up the auger and touched it up. There was a slight ding in the auger flighting up a turn or two from the bottom. That I fixed. However,  the mounting head for the blades didn't have any of the original powder paint damaged, none had flaked off, and there was no rust spots. The blades where rusted up but not damaged. I assume if they were bent the powder paint would have expanded & flaked off. The two blade angles seem to look like they are how they should be. So I'm really kinda leaning that the blade mounts might not be bent with the way it looks.    If I look at the shaver blades from the top or bottom they look like a normal shaver blade. However, when looked at from the side they seem to have a very slight curve that matches the blade mount. Did jiffy have a design like this different from the others? So I'm confused.......what would be the odds of both the blade mount sides being bent to what looks like exact angles.......if they were bent what is the odds of both blades seeming to conform to the bends without cracking or breaking........I measured from one outside blade edge to the other and got 8in......but I know 8in augers can go from a range of 7.5in-8.5in depending on brand and other things......If the blade mounts were bent I would think some powder paint would have flaked off.......I'll do the ice bucket trick.....was hoping someone had one or could chime in. It looks a little like a design between a flat shaver and a curved blade if it's not bent......I do really like the design if that is what it is meant to be. I also love the blade cover being a rubber that is tight and doesn't fall off. I just really don't know if they are bent or not bent. Confusing.....Also wondering if flat shaver blades would work on it or if I would need to find a set of Jiffy blades that had a slight curve to them.....
    • I wax every exposed part of the string.

    • Hi guys,   I am a beginner and just purchased a Matthew Halon bow last year.  However, I haven't waxed the bowstring and figured I should do it before this season starts.   My bowstring doesn't seem to have any colors on it showing where to avoid waxing it.    Can somebody explain or direct me to a video on where to avoid waxing on the bowstring of a Matthew Bow?  I know the part about rubbing the wax into the string good, but I am unsure which part of the bowstring to avoid waxing exactly.    Thank you.
