    So, I am confused. When you are off duty she is with you 24/7 and when you are working she is alone for a 24 hour period? I would hire someone to break up her day when you are on duty. No dog...

    Is it the food or stress? What is her schedule like and time out of kennel? I honestly prefer a dog who is aired and exercised enough that it doesn't air in the kennel. (My dogs are house dogs,...

    John,

    I understand what you are saying and appreciate your input and putting things in perspective. The Golden gene pool is small. The tree hugger in me just does feel for the low percentage of...

    Hi Colleen,

    Ok-I'll wipe the egg off my face. I was posting based on assumptions. If ichthyosis doesn't impact dogs quality of life than it is a moot point whether they are bred or not. I...

    I'm not saying you are down playing it at all. It's just w/ choices out there to be able to breed so that no puppies are affected why wouldn't everyone do so?

    Russ,

    I lost my Kate the same way and the pain was visceral. Your having to be strong and supportive for your family may be a gift in a way. We sign up for this, but I believe our dogs don't want...

    I have a 9 month old that came to me at 5 months after being shuffled around a bit. It took a solid month of my beating my head against the wall deciding to keep him. A combination of Come to Jesus...

    I agree 110%. Good for his current owner to not force a square peg into a round hole and to care where his dog lives out the rest of his life. Give him time to get to know and trust you and from...

    One thing I do think is that you have to have actually seen or judged the dogs to know why the same dogs are winning. I stewarded in the obedience ring a couple months ago and it was clear which...

    To not be discouraged in FTs, the average person has to define what they measure as success. It runs the gambit from expecting an FC and running Nationals to feeling great that you made it in good...

    What is quoted above is the answer. A dog should be able to SAFELY line a blind. If something is in the way that flares a dog, that is a training issue. If there is something in the way that...

    I would take Breck's advice on finding a group. Not always easy to do, but worth it. Not sure what your plans are for your dog, but training alone doesn't give the dog the same "Wow" factor as...
