Hi Zem,

   I love The Dog Whisperer and have copies of every episode saved from my
   TiVo.  If I could get the DVD creation software not to crash Windows XP
   I'd send you all of them!

   I used to have lots of problems with Romeo on walks until I went out and
   bought one of those cheap 'show dog' leashes.  It's nothing more than 
   a rope with a loop on one end; it goes over his head and up behind his
   ears.  With anything else he'll pull and pull -- the 'Halti' leashes
   that go over the nose, the one that acts like a harness and lifts their
   legs when they pull, regular leashes, etc.  With this leash he's 
   immediately controlable and pays attention to me.

   Plus there's no chance of this happening:


   It sounds like he still has a lot of pent-up energy -- how often do you
   walk him?


P.S.  I hope I don't sound like I'm trying to tell you how to raise your
      'children' -- tell me to shut up and I will.  :)
