With that said, I'd like to read more from this section and find out what people are doing. I use Bark Busters of Central CT, and I've had great success so far. The name doesn't really give justice to their vast skills and knowledge, but I'll let you all research that program if you choose. For now, I'm simply trying to solicit ideas for discussion.

Grade: C While these dogs need training, frequently they don't receive it because their annoying behaviors are "just not bad enough." It's unfortunate because "C" dogs can improve quickly and bring great joy and happiness to families. And, with training, the owner can be assured the behaviors will only get better -- not worse.

ooooooo.... sort of like using a penny can?
Those work really well!
Here is Connor with his.
This category of dogs has issues that can be serious if not addressed soon. Owners of these dogs are constantly being annoyed and irritated by their behavior and are beginning to think, "Something has got to be done." Fortunately, dogs can change their behavior quite easily, so these owners should seek help immediately.
I understand that the method does work with some dogs, I'm not disputing that. I just prefer not to use them on my dogs. For one, I know both my dogs would think it was a toy. And two, I don't like to encourage noise sensitivity in my working dogs.

It didn't ask if you *wanted* the dog to jump on you or not...
