Jeremy Norton Teaching a New Decoy
the Accessory Attack Over an Obstacle

This short video is of our friend, Jeremy Norton, teaching a new decoy how to target a dog to a specific part of his upper body as a dog jumps an obstacle, in this case an agility tunnel. This video demonstrates why decoys in the Mondioring sport have to very coordinated, very fast and well trained. This is not a training video, it's offered only as a demonstration. The bites are displayed in normal speed, then in slow motion.

Question: My 15 week old puppy gets diarrhea when I give her hot dogs or other treats. What can I give her?

Hi, sorry to disturb you. I would like to ask you a question about my dog. I don't know if it is okay with you but i need your experience. I have a dog who is 15 weeks old  and I don't know why, but when she eats a lot of protein like hot dog sausage for treat or other treat, my dog have diarrhea few hours later. Do you know why or what can I give for my dog for treat? The vet doesn't know why and she's only thinking the dog has fragile intestine. My dog is a female Amstaff.

I will appreciate your answer and I thank you for your products. I have made 2 command and your products is a very good quality.

I wish you a good day.


It may be that some of the ingredients in hot dogs or other treats are the problem, not the actual protein.

I’ve had good luck using boiled chicken breast for dogs with sensitive stomachs. You can cook a number of chicken breasts, cut into small pieces and then store in the freezer for future use.

We have a short video on the website about high value food rewards for dogs. This may help too.

Question: I have one of your wire muzzles for my dog, can I fasten her leash directly to the muzzle?

Mr. Frawley:

I have one of your wire muzzles for our Doberman, Nikki & I was wondering if you had any opinion about using it as a Gentle Leader by simply fastening her leash to a wire on the muzzle while she is wearing it.

Our local police want us to muzzle Nikki when we walk her in our neighborhood, because she has scared a few joggers by lunging at them when they've startled her (usually from behind). We've been using a Gentle Leader, which gives us good control over her, but the police argue that it's no substitute for a real muzzle. 

I also wonder about using the wire muzzle during the coldest weather here in south central Wisconsin. Is there any concern that her tongue could become stuck to it?

Thanks very much for your opinion!



I would not recommend attaching a leash to the muzzle, they are not made for that. If the dog were to lunge with the leash attached to the muzzle it would likely be pulled off and it may injure your dog as well. Why not use a prong or dominant dog collar to walk her while she wears the muzzle?

We sell thousands of muzzles and haven’t ever had any reports of problems using the wire muzzle in cold climates. If you are concerned about it, you may want to try one of the plastic Jafco muzzles.

I hope this helps.

Mr. Frawley,

I will keep this short, but I want to commend you on your patience and could not keep from emailing you on it any longer.

I have spent 8 years in my law enforcement career and each day reaffirms for me the stupidity and ignorance that is present in the human race. Granted it isn't everyone, but the ones who show their faces more than make a convincing argument to the contrary. Today (days off) I was particularly bored and realized after receiving your email newsletter (which I love) that I hadn't been to your site in a while, and so I clicked the link. Don't ask why I went to your Dumb and Dumber, Emails that make me mad and Emails that make me laugh pages, but I did. Apparently, I am not satisfied with the daily ignorance that I encounter! I know you receive hundreds of emails and have only picked a select few, but your patience is remarkable to me. I read, read some more, and continually shake my head in wonder and outright anger at the people you entertain. My hat is off to you sir!

Keep up the wonderful work you do in education and educating those who truly are open to the correct way to live with and shape the lives of the dogs they choose to own AND love. I hope you don't mind I have enclosed a photo of my girl Bristol, and she is truly a joy to me. She is 9 mo old, spayed, and though I am biased, the ideal Pit Bull dog. She has learned manners from the start (including crate training and leash work), travels (closely supervised) with me, and knows her 'place' in human society. She does test me, but I expect that and so her training is continual and fair. I will probably never do more with her than have her as an ideal companion dog, but I am committed to the end that she will be socially acceptable as a DOG not identified solely as a Pit Bull, as that is simply a breed and a set of traits that directs the course of a proper training regimen.

Enough from me, this has been longer than I intended. Thank you again for your hard work and unending patience.
