They are sturdy collars but it's best to take them off when they are playing anyway :)

And I'm glad to see I wasn't the only crazy doof who ordered collars around Christmas. Lisa ought to LOVE me for ordering like 9 collars on Christmas Eve. ( Some were adopt me collars though!)

I've heard rave reviews on the ring as well :)

We've got the #7 small ring and it's still holding. One of the guys at the pet store here got the #10 ring for his dog to use on the springpole and it's still kicking! We're talking 70-80lbs of dog he's got too.

Yeah, Mia looks mostly black, but get her out in the sun and she's got some awesome brindle undertones :)

Crappy pic but you get the idea:

trip8581, totally OT, but your dog in the avatar TOTALLY looks like my foster girl, with the exception of some coloring differences :)

Clicker training maybe? That sounds like it might help beef up his response time. You still practicing NILIF?

I really liked ROLEX's description of what you can try doing too :)

Where is his flat collar when you are walking him? The prongs are used properly when high on the neck. This is also, in my opinion, where the flat collar should be for a transition. It's safer for the dog as it's not hitting their trachea so much and it doesn't give them as much leverage to pull whe...

yes but it can take a looooong time with some dogs. I recently reccomended the head collar to a coworker and she says it was like magic for her dog. for my dog, the prong was the way to go. Regardless though, both options are bandaids so to speak and don't actually teach the dog to walk nice on a f...

I think that the ICrate and the Life Stages are pretty much the same thing. They are good quality crates in my opinion. I'd go with a 2-door if you can, simply for the reason mentioned above; it's so much easier to set up in different places with those options. If you want a really sturdy crate and ...

What about a martingale collar? That might serve a good purpose if he responds to it :) Looks like a flat collar but is a limited slip "choke" chain so to speak. Non-threatening but totally functional :) Some heavy duty INSANE pullers don't seem to respond well to them. Also, what about wo...

I had no idea about the change in formula until i was already in a new bag. After 3 weeks of straight yellow poop, I said to hell with the Canidae. I switched them to Natural Balance briefly and am now feeding the Wellness Lamb and Rice. We're still trying to find a good medium. The dogs were doing ...

Your sister is safe. You are safe. The dogs are safe. The family is safe. I know words probably don't make a d@mn bit of difference right now, but one thing you know for certain, Sadie can relax now and be herself and not stress out over things or anything.

She's in foster care right now. She won't be available for adoption until at least October 15th, but if she has to have her tooth extracted, it'll likely be after that.
