    I'm in China and its not that widespread.  Also, it was used  for when pollution days are severe, only outdoors  but no one was using hand gel social distancing proper sanitary conditions 
    I don't think anyone is suggesting masks is enough  but at least its not doing any harm 
    ======================
    The lock down will work but because they are so half-assed and so many fuckwits like Wdyle about resisting everything , many people making it all about themselves rather than the greater public good, lockdowns just prolong and cases rise again once its over . A few cases were announced here in DaXing District Beijing (5 million people) a few days ago.  Within 24 hours people were knocking on the door asking everyone's  movements. Loudspeakers on the street telling everyone to go for a covid test set up in the nearby park. You have no choice, you have to go by law. 1 hour job done. Your health app is updated with the status. All compounds were sealed off and you need ID to get in and out of your own local area. You won't get in to any supermarket, corner shop, restaurant, gym without the APP. Breaking the quarantine zone is a severe penalty, i.e. jail time 
    The New Years season is coming up here, anyone  who travels anywhere must have a COVID test done before they go. There are barriers on the roads  . Sure you could drive and find a way through the back roads but the public mentality is different. If you did it the public would shun you (socialist group mentality) 
    End of the day its working here, there is no question about that. Outbreaks has happened several times now, if there is a outbreak in a particular area, that area  is locked down hard and when the all-clear is given its lifted (2 or 3 weeks)  
    The usual bitching and moaning of people about their rights, government control , listening to nutjobs on forums just causes the situation to prolong forever. Too many dickheads like we see on this forum that just think about themselves rather than their duty to the greater public safety. 
    And FFS stop bitching about mental health,  because you have to stay at home in a heated house, watching netflix paying video games,  government subsidies. What about the folks in WW2,  food rations, no heat, worried about bombs coming through their roof at night time , or those conditions in Russia in the 90s, or people in Iraq for all the years they bombed shite out of the place , or they way hundred of millions of Asian and Africans live daily. UK has become a nation of wall flowers. You can't get to the gym or the pub , STFU claiming your mental health has been affected .  It's a mockery to people who do genuinely have bad mental health issues like autism .

    Yes people don’t realise it takes time and patients however the handler needs to know what he is training if expecting the dog to pick it up and wed young to keep training sessions short and fun so high praise and rewards with food/toy ect as they get older you swap food for the high value toy and ply like you say. The dog needs to think of you as the source of food and high entertainment not something else it may encounter on the walk. 
     
    couple of 5 min sessions spread out over the day when the dog is young will suffice then it can be extended moving to outdoors ect. 
     
    OP I advice getting a trainer. Attending puppy classes to socialise the dog if nothing else and learn the basics what commands to use and remember to be consistent. Invest the time when young and continuation training you’ll have a friend for life who respects you. Simple things like the dog doesn’t eat until you say, never let w dog enter a house or building before you. Your the alpha you walk in first. Set boundaries and stick to them don’t confuse the dog letting it in the sofa sometimes and then expecting it not to others for example. Some books are a good source of information too or even YouTube has good trainers

    Technique sounds wrong pal. 
     
    From the floor to your lap, it's more like a RDL, and then you put your arms over the top of the stone at 10 and 2 (looking at a clock) And then it's a hip hinge movement.
     
    Stones I've lifted, 70kg, 90kg and 110kg, Stuck on 140kg Stone still.

    I’d like to say this is true but you’ve only got to look on here at the doses and different compounds some say they use that years ago would leave me thinking that they must know what they’re doing, must look great etc and then you see a pic and they either look like they barely train, either small or fat. Best part is that they’ll be found in the steroid/peptide sections giving advice like they’ve had great results!! 
    After 30yrs of training and reading various literature put out by pros and these ‘experienced’ types, I have found it best to not believe a bloody word of their bullshit and to do my own thing. There are 2 reasons for this;  
    1, everyone responds differently to training, diet, gear. 
    2, it’s hard to distinguish between who’s being honest, most if not all are full time bullshitters who downplay the gear(easier bit), up play the training and diet(harder bit). 

    Best of all is when someone tries to tell me that X must be telling the truth because he’s quite open. Yeah sure, they’re just saying what it takes to get people watching, like they’re doing something right without using much gear, bit like fake nattys.

    brilliant advice.
    only thing i would add is never ask your dog to give his paw for food or treats because if you do, the pooch will spend the rest of its life scratching at your legs for treats.
    oh yeah, another thing - get a toy that is only played with on walks. never bring the toy into the house or garden.

    Can train recall in any breed. You need to start early and Train with a single command. Use food as a high value reward. Start of in the house when a puppy. Don’t let your puppy play with other dogs and humans when out. You want your dog to see you as the main source of fun so he returns to you. When feeding time make him work for the food so work on the commands and training prior to any treat or meal so he learns he has to work for his food and coming back to you will get him a treat and praise. 
     
    Ensure you’re the only one who feeds him and as said he works for that meal. Once he understands food comes from you he will recall when asked to get a reward and soon learns.  This will build the relationship and trust he has with you and making him want to please you and return. Also a long line so 10m lead is good for training recall when outdoors. When you give the command ‘come’ or whatever it is if he doesn’t come straight away you encourage him with a tug at the long line draw him to you when he gets to you you then treat and reward it. It will click with him this is the desired behaviour. Plenty of books online about recall from dog handlers or get a dog handler to show you what I’m saying but basically this can be worked on with all other sit, down, stay, wait, heel, on your bed from 8 weeks old

    Used to have a lurcher, so very similar. His recall was fine, you will need to let him off the lead to let him sprint. Honestly it was never an issue. 
    Whippets can be a bit nuts the first 2 years, very snappy and playful. But they settle. I'd love another but the wife bought a cat and I'm sure a whippet / lurcher would eat it.
