I like leather leashes, especially once they're soft and broken-in. The nylon ones can tear up your hands if a dog suddenly pulls, since the nylon is textured. Chain kills your hands and is slippery, not giving you much control. I figure if I used leather with horses, it's more than strong enough fo...

as with dog-reactivity, i think you can train a dog to behave around other critters *while you are there* and the situation is controlled (ie, on leash, or inside at home). bear in mind that your housecat lying on the sofa will be less enticing than a running, strange cat in the yard. i use "watch m...

the dog in the photo in this thread is a blue fawn... blue (dilute), or washed-out. the nose gives it away as a fawn! your puppy sounds like a normal size; i would focus more on how healthy your pup is rather than what size she'll be... it's really the size of her heart. i've known dogs that were 35...
