      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 .

Tricks and Training-One or the Other or Both

Recommended Posts

Have heard two opinions on the matter and wanted more. I'm busy training the dog (she is 12 weeks) in the evenings, but before I get home my wife is doing the same thing with tricks. The pup is learning roll over, jump, paw, etc. She is also learning stay, no, come, sit, and lay down from my wife which is good, but I'm concerned that the parlor tricks could get in the way of the real training (which has been sit, stay, no, come, whoa, heel, kennel, and down).

Any care to share their thoughts on the matter?

I have never and will never teach parlor tricks... why occupy the precious time period of fundamental training with tricks? If she wants to teach them, I say wait until the dog is older and then go ahead and teach away... When young concentrate on the bread and butter training and leave the fluff out!

My 2 cents!

It's good that you're both involved with the pup, but you both should be on the same page... I never understood the reason to teach a dog to shake. I've seen a couple of children scratched pretty good from a dog that was taught the shake thing. The jump deal is bit worry-some too. Usually I've had a hard enough time learning the puppy to stay down. Yeah, I guess I'm not big on the parlor tricks, but if it keeps you both involved with the pup I think that is important too; work on tricks that supplement or compliment your training goals.

your dog is a sponge at this age right now, and is learning how to act out for the rest of its life. you should set standards, and follow those standards, day in and day out.

example, i allow no vocalness in the training field, and the same goes for around the house.

if i were you, i would take advantage of this time to bond with your dog and teach him the things that will help him have success in the field, or on the line.
