New to the breed.

I have heard of many practices such as having your children pull their food away from them as they are eating and correct them if they show aggression. That's a good way to get a child bitten in the face. Small children should never be messing with a dog while they are eating, and should never be a...

Hola from Washington

Oh, and for DIY at home training, I really enjoy the YouTube videos by user "kikopup". She's a great trainer with loads of easy and fun instructional videos for everything from basic obedience to cool tricks.

Hola from Washington

The Kent area is a little slim pickin's on decent dog facilities. There are several out there that will gladly take your money to jerk your dog around, but they're not skilled trainers nor do they have business calling themselves "professionals". The closest place that offers really great ...

Where about in the Seattle area are you? I'd be happy to suggest a training facility or two for you and your pup.

Hello Everyone

I'm going to put of my fat-chance optimistic hat and hope that Diamond is either a stray you've recently taken in, or in foster care under the care of a rescue that will be helping to raise, socialize, and place the puppies, or she's a titled and health tested dog worthy of breeding and all the pupp...

Hi there ....

I'm curious why you chose to breed a solid white dog when conditions such as deafness and blindness are very common genetic defects connected with the coat color...

Dog Warts

He'll be 7 next March. I wouldn't say they're "rapidly" growing or spreading, but he does have 3 new little ones that have appeared in the matter of the past week or two. He used to have one on his elbow that he managed to rip off playing one day that never grew back.

Dog Warts

From what I've read, warts are a fairly normal thing and not generally cause for concern. Jack has a couple on his feet as has for quite sometime. His vet looked at them last we were in but didn't think anything of them. They don't bother him at all. But, they're starting to grow and multiply. Anyon...

Re: Meet My Beautiful Sidekick, Roxy :)

The breed restrictions in Texas are intense also, so an aggressive dog is not a concern. You do realize aggression and reactivity are not breed traits, right? I love her, but slapping on your cloths at 2am walking down all those stairs for 2 minutes of potty time... that gets really old. It sure do...

Re: strength

Way too young. His joints are still forming. Any serious conditioning should wait until he's at least a year if not 18 months.

Deafdogs.org is a fabulous resource for basic deaf dog FAQs (my website has a couple of deaf dog training blurbs as well), and both Miss Kitty and I are well acquainted with training deaf dogs. Feel free to ask questions you might have!

False ;) They may have a funny sounding bark, but I assure you they are quite capable of a variety of vocalizations.

Rescue Folks: Help please w/ Info you provide to adopters?

Bullseye Rescue over here near Seattle has a ton of great literature. I'd take a look at their website :)
