    Great broadcast! I am going to order the Tenderfoot Training DVD. Snoopy (my pal) could use some training. He doesn’t interact with dogs like he should. I don’t walk him because it has gotten too cold. But tomorrow morning I will start again at least for about 15 minutes just to get him out the house. I do play with him most days, but some days I’m just too tired. After I get the DVD I will let you know how he is doing. Thanks so much for sharing thoughts on how to revive a neglected dog. I never thought of Snoopy as being neglected, but I guess he is and I will do something about it. I have always thought that he was a happy dog. But he does have behavior issues and that scares me. I can’t even take him for a ride without him barking at everyone he sees. He even does that while he is outside on his 30ft leash, he barks at everyone he sees.
    Thanks again,

  2. wow….this is unreal, thank you for doing this topic that is near and dear to my heart. why keep collecting dogs if you never walk the one you already have, an argument that I have often with my friend. Its funny, I just made a “rant” posting about dog walking on and then I listened to this. I always considered it neglect but am often told “well at least they have a home”……once again, thank you for doing this topic and doing it so wonderfully!!! I’ll be passing it along to my friends.
