      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 .

Dog Barking

Recommended Posts

My lab is 10 months old now and still insists on barking when he wants to be let out of the kennel. How do I break him of this habbit? I have tried to ignore it but he honestly barked for 2 1/2 hours and then I just gave in. How can I break him of this?

Have the hose sitting by his kennel and turned on with a spray connector at the end, When he starts barking run right out there and sternly say his name and give him the command quiet or no bark, and if he keeps it up give him a face full of water with the hose. No this doesn't make him afraid of water because we used it on our labs and my GWP. Repeat process until he is broke of the habit. Of course the easy route is a bark collar which means batteries, etc.

We fixed our chronic all night barking problem with a bark collar and it seems to have worked. I would recommenfd buying one with rechargable batteries but it didn't take ours long to figure it out.

"Of course the easy route is a bark collar which means batteries, etc."

I am not sure I would classify it as easy, I would go with consistent. I know I am not home all day to depend human action with every bark.

Citronella Anti-Bark Collar..

Has been on her for 3 weeks now.. Not one peep out of her.. till yesterday, but that was only because it needed a refill.

My dad used a shock collar for his lab and it did work.. just that the collar kept malfunctioning.

You can find at your local petsmart/petco. Lifetime warranty too!

my only problem with a bark collar is our neighbors used one and the dog learned how to do this little yip just quiet enough so she didn't get buzzed

I vote for the bark collar, and human disciplin when you can for an add on. But the collars work well for kenneled dogs. In the house imediate checks keep them quiet. Good luck, I have never heard of the citronilla collar, sounds interesting.
