There is something in the air ... EARS is responding to a hoarder in Nevada, and they also activated their volunteers for this one in Lancaster. Here's a link to the video of the Lancaster situation. More than 20 EARS volunteers said they went to assist this past weekend! CNN reported about the situ...

Couldn't think of a better way to kick off the new year - happy and safe travels to the old man.

That's great news....you should send Ellena a PM just in case she doesn't see your response right away.

Stephanie - I use the Dogtra 200 Gold as well, after being thoroughly trained through a Sit Means Sit trainer who went through the levels with Daphne and gave me the minimum range where she would actually respond. I also love the vibrate option, I use that alot in the house to remind her about not c...

Daphne had demodex ... the ivermectin was horrible tasting stuff, but I used a bottle of those empty gel capsules...like what your vitamins would come in and filled them with her daily dose of ivermectin....I think it took about 6 capsules. She gobbled those up in some turkey before dinner and it ne...

Honestly, your situation doesn't sound that dire. You should read the stickies on head collar training and prong training. Either would work fine for you and you'd probably like the head collar type if you're averse to a prong, but you should definitely read the sticky Red put together on it, as you...

yes, I wish mine was bright green.... I agree, weren't those bullies more in line with the hippos everyone agrees isn't good structure for the dogs? But they were cuties and it was nice to see them outside in public working politely amongst each other. I *think* he had the collar positioned wrong in...

Pit Bull Training video/news story

It's kinda a combo news item / training video clip, but it was on my sit means sit email (it's the same training Daphne gets, different trainer)....thougt it was pretty neat.

Another thought to tag onto to the muzzle question, regardless of whether your dog is comfortable wearing it and uses it often, you should have a muzzle in your pet's emergency kit. I have one for Daphne, the Leerburg hannibal lector type, and a regular mesh one for Scooby, in the event of a disaste...

Maybe Levine will scrap the team pushing it (Judi et all) and get some people that aren't so focused on what they think is their ideal world of no animals being exploited. I remember when I asked about the working stock dogs exemption, and said she'd be welcome to attend one of our barrel races and ...

I got an email yesterday from the initiative group, they claim Levine pulled it to try again in 2008 so that's not that far off. I told them they need to go back to the way the bill was in the beginning, and make the corrections (i.e., working stock dog exemptions, ADA compliant, etc) and DO NOT inc...

I thought it said owner surrender's could not list their dogs - it is my understanding this original request is the owner's son is trying to find safe place for his dog. I understand the need for rules, but if the owner's are not willing to try all the options out there, are we to really be turning ...

I second the opinions to get a vet to check him out first, but if your own safety isn't going to allow for the time for you to do that, then so be it. But, I think, strongly, you should be the one to take your dog to the vet's office and whatever it takes out of you, be there for him when they put h...

I did get a response - it seems that many of the people on the coalition have the same exact concerns, both with the exemption to have one litter and the stockdogs. Here's the response...and that Judie is a little hard to influence in this area due to her east coast urban outlook, but at least they'...

This is what I posed to one of the regional coordinators of the health pets coalition, as I've been helping gather support signatures. I am still not convinced that if this bill gets passed, things will be so dire the McNabbs will face imminent extinction and no one in California will be able to fin...
