Beyond the Collar
A collection of articles, that should generate thoughtful, sometimes wicked, ideas.
For Pup, Seeker and Setter Members who enjoy discussion and sharing
Very often tricky, very often hard work,
but usually rewarding
This page is my (indulgent) opportunity to throw ideas up in the air and see where they land.
I was encouraged to ask questions, or more truthfully, I was not discouraged from asking questions. But there were times when I learned to be careful of the questions I asked.
I hope you will stay for a while, browse, and with thoughtfulness ask more questions.
You never know – someone may be able to answer them
Are training protocols compromised for commercial gain?
should be asking
… but maybe a tad uncomfortable
Photos that say everything
we can’t put

The forum section is not proving a suitable function for dog trainers. I KNOW we like to talk about training, and some of the public forums need to be regarded as unsafe and dangerous ground.
Here we have a very select group, who have passed the necessary tests (negotiating Members to the site) and can call themselves Setters – folk who want to move thier learning forward and broaden their reach and understanding.
As a little suggestions I think we can set up this page to also include discussions in a format that will work on Desktops, iPads or phones, still be readable and able to follow.
Each of the Blogs you can see on this page can also be used as kick off points for discussion. If you would like to begin a discussion – which may be just an idea that you want to toss around, or explore, or connect with other people. Then please either comment at the bottom of this page, or to one of the blogs, and I will start a new blog/discussion.
You can add links to other websites, articles that made your teeth itch, or a personal background or review that you would like to share.
… over to you!

Comments made in this section are only on view to other Members.
We love to hear from you – going beyond the collar is about the thoughts that are provoked.
Folk who have passion, experience, knowledge and dogs.
When people with the same passion get together learning explodes.
