One day the BF comes out of the bathroom holding the dog's toothbrush and says "this one's mine right?" Trying not to laugh, I say "um, why do you ask?" He answers "oh, it's the one I've been using I just wanted to make sure" All I could say was "I hope you like c...

I took Ben to a trainer once, and the first thing he did was take two or three links out of my prong, so it was pretty tight on his neck. The slightest yank and Ben was yelping like he was on fire. After the session I put the links back in. I felt it was too harsh, and I did think he would get dese...

Ok..I have a couple of questions for all you groomers! I am thinking of taking the dog grooming course they offer at my work, it's 4000 plus 1600 for the cost of clippers brushes books etc, is that a good deal? Also, what kind of money can you make?

Training my high prey drive girl..HELP

I am trying to train Baby..but I am encountering some real difficulties with walking outside. Her prey drive is incredible. The minute she steps out of the house, she's in hunt mode, watching the bushes, trees, street, for any sign of movement. She has no interest in treats, or toys, or me. It's all...
