from the pictures, and don't get mad, i'm kind of famous for insulting my friends about this :oops: :oops: your puppy looks like he's in great weight, and red looks like he could stand to lose quite a few pounds. i think that might be part of the problem- you're comparing your puppy to an overweight...

is your concern about weight bearing bones because of the risk of teeth breaking? i think it's about weighing the risks/benefits *for your individual dog*. mac broke his two giant teeth in the last year, at about age 6. i don't know what he broke them on, but my guess is raw beef marrow femurs that ...

i answered yes. i used to feed beef and lamb weight bearing bones as rec bones maybe three times a month, but snce mac broke both his big teeth, i haven't, really. he misses them, and i miss his clean breath. i might start again, just for shorter periods of time.

I don't understand the snotty undertones in some of these replies when one introduces ones self and says he has bred his dog. Why are people jumping on this person and sarcastically asking to see scores? Leslie, a regulator, has TACTFULLY mentioned that this board is primarily anti-breeding, and th...

I'm 30 and I'm very active. I've had Karma since she was 4-5 weeks old, she's 3.5 and has had 1 litter. She's really mild mannered, yet hyper, follows direction well, but can be bull headed. A Definate personality! She's been on vacations across the country, loves the car. Just a part of my family....

i guess i should have been more specific. i get it that someone is getting the dogs used to gunshots. what i don't understand is the exact set up- WHO is getting these dogs used to gunshots? for what purpose do these exact dogs need to be densitized to gunshots? why are they being desensitized in t...

Green - In this video it seems as if (there is a term for it, I can't think of) they are getting these pups used to gunshots and other noises. The tires I am not sure but possibly because they are pushing the comfort threshold in that where they are and the sounds they are exposed to are unnatural....
