Re: Paco Collars "Honor-Thy-Labor Day Sale"

Ana why don't you have pictures of plain boring brown belts on your site. That is what I need--but I don't think I can get one until I finish re-sizing.

Re: Why is it SO important....

my old boy used to poop on bushes / walls etc. he even pooped on the toilet once. i'd never known there were so many other poop-on-something dogs! I love when Brutus poops. When Ruca poops, she has this fierce determined look on her face. When Brutus poops, his face is totally relaxed, as if disconn...

Re: WP Harness Question

she doesn't do sizes. You send in a couple measurements and she makes it from there. On the off chance it doesn't fit right, she will redo it, no charge.

Re: Who wants a Free Collar Mania Collar Drawing

Would it be wrong to put Brutus in that pink flowery fabric?? I used to paint Magoo's toenails red after all. They don't know.

Putting my name down!

Re: Dog conditioning

. If I ever taught them leash manners, healing, we'd both get about 1/10 the workout we do at the end of the leash tugging 2inch collar, 10ft lead and a pair of New Balance I hear ya! When we go hiking, the dogs wear their "walking" harnesses, which really means, time for non-stop pulling...

Re: Weight pulling

If introduced correctly, it will be quite some time before your dog really needs to work. As to good form, some of that is structure dependent. Ideally, you want a dog to drop low, and pull slowly and evenly with good extension both front and rear. It really helps if your dog is well angulated. If ...

Re: Tracking?

It's funny, Louie, because in the K9 Nosework classes we've been doing the indication is *the last* thing a dog learns. There are dogs that have been doing it for over a year without learning an indication (it's to prevent false indicating). Just goes to show there's more than one way to skin a cat...

Hang in there. Sometimes Cindy isn't the fastest at responding. But her harnesses are well worth the wait.

Re: Bungee Leashes

I saw this in REI the other day, and I thought, oh neat! I could use one of those for Brutus! Then I thought about it, and asked myself, "when?" When we're out for a hike, he wears his walking (ie pulling only) harness, and is allowed / encouraged to pull constantly, so the bungee function...

Re: To crate or not to crate??

Since you will essentially be with your new dog for two whole months straight, then go back to work, I would definitely crate the dog. Work on it as soon as you get the dog. Start with feeding him in there and gradually lengthening the time he's left in there. This way when you go back to work it's ...

Re: To crate or not to crate??

I think crating is awesome. Growing up I had dogs that didn't need to be crated, as they could be trusted not to get into the garbage, destroy furniture, and bark bloody murder at every passerby. Now however, I have one dog who would eat couches, shred blankets, chew up and consume things when he ge...

Re: Sudden Territorialism?

how old is he? Ruca started barking as she matured... and never stopped. I don't have advice for you other than to find out how to curb this NOW before it becomes a habit.
