    I guess I would be one of these (although I don't exactly scream it). I've got a 5-month old pup now, and I've had an 8' rope on him most of the time when he's running around outside (and sometimes...

    When my dog was younger, I always tried to get out the morning of the test and throw a couple marks and run a blind (off the grounds, of course). Focused on obedience and making sure I had his...

    Since I live in Oregon, and have been talking about a visit to Canada for years, that sounds interesting.
