This video is for all of us who have loved and lost our pet.

We didnít produce this video. We could not have done as nice of a job. It brought back a lot of memories. Back in 1997, I wrote about losing Natan. I am still not over it.

Question & Answers

Question: Last month, our dog ate some highly toxic seeds from our back yard. We're trying to get rid of them, but he is still finding the roots. Can we use the e-collar to make this plant 'taste' and 'smell' bad?


Thanks so much for what you and Ed produce. We’ve got a 9 month old Rhodesian Ridgeback that has been a great dog (so far). We (him and I) have been through the basic obedience and pack structure work and it has made him a great little dog (though he’s 85lbs now). We got your e collar video and that has really helped me work with him (he now knows the difference between corrections and rough play).

Last month he ate some Sago Palm seeds (highly toxic) which of course sent him to hospital for a few days. His liver panels have come back clean (thank the Lord) and he’s still on meds for now. We are trying to get rid of all the Sago’s in the back yard to avoid future poisonings, but they are big and it’s slow going. However, he is still finding and chewing on the roots of the palms in the back yard. Can we use the e collar (tri-tronics sport basic g3) to make the sago ‘taste’ and ‘smell’ bad? He’s darn smart and darn sneaky sometimes for a pup, I can get him to OUT toys and my socks but for some reason the sago plant he can’t seem to say no too.

My wife and I don’t want to deal with a poisoned dog ever again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


PS Here is the link for sago palms, they are very cold hardy and they are starting to sell them in the big box stores. http://www.texasveterinary.com/sago-palm-toxicity/


Can you put up a secure temporary kennel or fenced area for him while you eradicate the palms? Unless you are out in the yard with him AND paying 100% attention to every move he makes when he’s in the yard, an ecollar may not solve this. I wouldn’t want to test it, by letting him out alone. You can certainly use the collar to reinforce not putting his mouth on stuff outside when you are there with him

If this was my dog, I’d only take him out in that area with direct supervision, I’d set up a temporary kennel or fenced area that was safe and free from the palms. You may also want to train him to wear a muzzle for the short term. That way he won’t be able to put anything in his mouth. We have directions on how to measure the dog for a muzzle on this page.

Thanks for the link to the toxicity article, this may save some dogs’ lives!

On Marker Training

Ed, just want to say I have been using marker training, as a result of buying your DVD. I have been training for 40 years, CD,CDX, UD and field dogs and always regarded clicker as a fad... I am sold on this marker training... no more ring tired dogs. Just want you to know, even this old dog had to learn some new tricks.
