      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 .

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.

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.
