NJ, big on obedience work with our large dog (100+lbs.).  I have a friend who had 2 completely out of control Labs., at least until they had to spend 10 days w/me.   ;)  First thing I did was fit them with training collars and buy 6' leather leashes for them.  And I spent "20 minutes a day" on obedience work.  It really is that easy. 

They knew "sit", and quickly mastered, "down".   We learned, "leave it".  And then, "wait".  And it was obedience work at every opportunity.  When she picked them up they were different dogs; more mellow and confident, attentive, and a whole lot easier to control, lol.  They'd learned to listen to me, look to me for direction, and were secure that everything I asked them to do meant they'd get praise.  What a concept!

What a cool hobby!

I hope my wife doesn't see this post. She will be wanting to send me up there to you to be trained to do these things.  ;D

Bobbin that is quite a concept. One year for Christmas my sister in-law gave two cute furry puppies to her parents. They quickly grew into 80 lb uncontrollable devil dogs that everyone swore were dumb as rocks. But they loved them so that summer we drove to Pennsylvanian and spent a week building a fence and twice a day training.

First day on a 20' lung line. Every time the dog ran one way I went another. After 15 mins the dog learned to always keep an eye on me. We gave a crash course in all the basics but mostly heel and stay.

At the end of the week my sister in-law came over to watch us train. Her mouth hung open as the dog heeled next to me always keeping an eye on me. We did left and right turns, fast, slow, about turn, and when we stopped the dog automatically sat right next to me. I told the dog to stay and walked to the end of the leash, he never moved a mussel. Tons of praise. The sister in-law was dumbfounded and amazed.

At this point all the dogs needed was a once a week refresher. But of course nobody has time for that, and we live in Florida.

Point is almost any dog can be trained with as little as 15 min a day. Problem is the human needs to be trained first.

Yeah, if a newbie looked at the thread title, and skipped straight to page 3, he'd probably think that somebody named their dog "Juki Lu 563". :D

Not a bad idea. I could get an Akita, and name him "Juki". Then get him a companion German Shepherd and name him "Pfaff".
Then I'll get a mutt, and call him "Chandler". ;D

I have a kitty who is a "talker", I could rename her Singer.  I like the idea of christening an Akita, Juki, too!

If I had 2 dogs or a 2 kittens I could name them Willcox and Gibbs...

Back to Vtool's suggestion, though.  It's a good one, it might be very helpful to be able to refer to a specific place on this site for specific machine help.  Would it be possible to archive videos, or would that hog up too much space and be redundant with YouTube offerings?

Hell ain't half full yet, and neither is Youtube. As long as we link to them, or whatever photo/video storage website that you choose, it sounds like a great idea.
Actually, this has pretty much been available to us for quite some time. But only recently have most of us become savvy enough to upload a video.
I agree that it would be nice to have a board devoted exclusively for sewing machine problems/instruction.

Setting up different boards seems to be Bobby's specialty. I know that he doesn't check in as much as he used to, but maybe he'll see this.

Sewing machine problems are a hot topic. They always seem to go 3 or 4 pages.

and thanks Sofa for masterfully steering this topic back on track

  I have learned more about my sewing machine from trying suggestions posted here.  Problem/instruction would be a great thread!  Little hints like" keep tension on the needle thread when starting" was useful.  I have used an old singer 30-15 for my basic sewing needs, but it is a world of difference from my Juki LU-563. 
 
    Back to dogs, when training with them I always clean up their obedience and heal work by chewing on a hot dog.  When the dog looks up at me I spit a little at him and he gulps it down.  It keeps him looking up and where I want him along with a quick praise method that does not stop the exercise at hand.

I am sorry about not having that manual. I lost the one Greg sent me when I changed laptops.

Sorry about that. Now I need another copy. :)
