    They got rid of an 8 WEEK old pup because it was biting???? The pup is most likely much better off.

    Reminds me of when one of the members of my dog club came to a meeting with a 10-week old...

    With the short-nosed breeds, I'd suggest AVOIDING the show breeders. The show ring demands the shortest nose possible for a dog that can still survive a walk around the ring. The squashed noses are...

    Could he have stumbled into a wasp nest or bee hive? A little early for them, but maybe he could have dug into an underground wasp nest? Maybe some plant like nettle, but that seems extremely...

    I have a golden retriever and a standard poodle, which are hardly the breeds one would choose if one wanted a guard dog. The poodle is a bit timid and shy. He would bark a lot but keep his distance...

    It uses bluetooth to link to your phone or tablet. If your dog never roams more than 50 to 100 feet away, it'll work great.

    I've had two collars with one transmitter for several years. No problems with faillure or battery life, but really inconvenient to change stim level. I wouldn't buy another one.

    Hate poison. Too easy to poison a non-target animal, including human toddlers. I don't like glue traps, because, mouse or not, I don't like for the little critter to suffer. Good old snap traps...

    1) On the entered list of dogs, add a column for breed. Add another column for gender. With standard shorthand for both, neither column would add much width to the display.

    I've had three standard poodles and I've always done my own grooming. (It's so hard to get that run-over-with-a-lawn-mower look when you rely on a professional groomer.) Anyway, what everyone has...

    Copperheads tend to be lethargic snakes. They rely on camouflage and often don't move unless you step on them. They are often associated with oak trees on rocky ground. Their coloration blends in...

    With mallards, there are so many domestic color variations, you can never know whether you have a domestic cross or a color aberration of a wild bird. It looks like a bird lacking eumelanin. ...

    Thanks all for the help and advice. I seem to vacillate between correcting the line too soon, with the result of her pausing about 50 yards out and looking back vs letting her run until she's way...

    Golden retriever in transition stage of handling.

    Set up a cold blind, about 80 yards, in a flat wheat field with light snow cover and no wind. Dog left on a line a few degrees off, one that...

    So sorry for your loss, Harry. It is never easy, and with some dogs, it is especially hard.

    Perhaps that trainer has never heard of Ammo? That's NAFTCH FC AFC FTCH AFTCH Upon the Wings of an Answered Prayer, who is also the all-time high-point derby dog. She is a chocolate lab.

    No answer to your question, but you've hit upon one of my pet peeves: Why aren't dog food companies required to list caloric contents for their food? I feed a mix of canned, dry, biscuits, and...

    I'm glad this came up, because I have a similar question. I have a 5.5 yr golden girl, never bred and don't intend to breed. No intact males in the house and she is never loose unsupervised. A...

    Not a problem. I've been getting the Ms. Magoo comments for the coke bottle glasses and the "What does that sign say?" questions all my life. Nice picture!

    Thanks, all! I think I am sold. I had not thought about looking on eBay for a used pair to give them a trial run before I take the big plunge with a new pair. Am actually kind of excited about...
