need photos

Hi all, I had posted this in the general section, but haven't had a lot of response so I thought this might be a better place to ask! I'm putting together an educational poster for a PBRC booth next month and would like to get some photos of pit bulls at work and play. I need good, high resolution p...

Sophie is still looking for a home!

If laughter is the best medicine, Sophie will cure all your ills! This pint-sized pit bull is a master at making people laugh out loud; she is a natural born clown with an unmatched zest for life! Her tiny 35lb body can’t possibly hold all this humor and it regularly spills out in mad dashes through...

Re: Sophie in Virginia

Sophie is still waiting for her forever home!! She is really starting to come out of her shell and as long as she is in her safe zone (currently my house and often the backyard) she is the most bubbly/happy little girl I've ever met. She is always smiling, looking for trouble and is just constantly ...

Re: Foster #2 Kiva, also available in Virginia

Oh boy! where in VA? north? richmond? We're in northern virginia, quantico area. Sophie needs to be an only pet, but Kiva is dog and cat friendly. No small children for either one as they have no clue about personal space and will knock little ones flying. More info can be found on PBRC along with ...

You can train two dogs at once with a clicker, however since these two dogs are at totally different levels of trianing you really need to work with them separately. Cash needs to be able to focus on you, so he can figure out what this 'training' thing is without the distraction of the other dog. Pl...

I personally would never board train my dogs. Training is about the relationship between you and your dog and that can't be developed by someone else. Plus you don't know how they train and many bootcamp type places rely on very harsh aversives to train. If your dog is out of your hands/sight, you h...

Its nice that they've changed this rule, but it still sucks that mixed breeds are segregated into separate classes, have separate titles and cannot compete in national championships and invitationals.

They are still treating mixed breeds as inferior to purebred dogs.

two words: crate train! A crate will be your best friend after TPLO or any ortho surgery. I personally would not use drugs to keep him calm. I know some people do, but sedatives have varying effects on dogs and some dogs can in fact get much more agitated on them trying to fight off the effects. You...
