    I've had good luck with the inflatable collar type (Kong brand example here) and with the BiteNot neck brace style collars.

    A lot of what works will depend on the individual dog's flexibility and...

    Training in the ring is not permitted in most dog sports. You couldn't recall your dog to you and stop him in an agility class, either; you'd be DQ'd for training in the ring.

    Just because you...

    Dogs are smart enough to learn to distinguish between different situations and stimuli, given time and proper training.

    My dogs are very toy motivated. If I throw a toy, they will chase it down...

    My cats' respective names when adopted were "Cuddles" and "Friendly." :dead:

    Maybe not standard names, but definitely stoopid.

    "Socks" is definitely up there on the list of way-too-common cat...

    My vet swears that FortiFlora is in a league of its own, compared to other dog probiotic products on the market.

    I've used it with success, but I have noooo idea the state of the research in this...

    Thanks to those who suggested Cosequin for my "special" kitty's pee problems... I picked up some last night and ordered a larger box that will arrive in a few days. I also placed a call to our...

    In my mind, Cane Corsos are not even in the same league as Presa Canarios.

    Yes, Cane Corsos are powerful dogs that can become aggressive if poorly handled. Yes, they are a poor choice for an...

    He's done the peeing-on-furniture thing since I adopted him at 11 months. He lived with a foster from 7 weeks-11 months and she had WAY TOO MANY animals, so I suspect the peeing was a habit picked up...

    This kid was definitely under 4, he was just a little guy. I'm not great with guestimating child ages, but he must have been under 2... he was still a little unsteady on uneven ground, barely...

    I have an 8 year old cat who has developed a lot of "standard" older cat issues in the last year.

    He's always had some litterbox issues. Each of places I've lived, he's picked one piece of...

    At one point there were some technical issues with the timer. During the ~10 minute period where we were waiting for the problem to be resolved, most of the exhibitors in line continued to actively...
  13. lure coursing with a Briard! (and a rant about idiots with Cane Corsos)

    The weather was gorgeous this weekend, so I went to a lure coursing fun match yesterday with my 20 month old Briard, Chewie. It was held by a local terrier club at the same time a local kennel club...

    For anyone interested - a live feed of tweets from people in today's hearing:

    For anyone who is interested in learning why the school's current state is a management failure (possibly an intentional one), not a product of societal trends: timeline

    In all fairness he's my Novice B dog (I put a single NJP title on my sheltie :lol: ).

    We are very fortunate to have the instruction and facilities available that we do! I'm a very competitive...

    :yes: We had x-rays about 5 months ago and he got the green light to start his foundation jump work, but he only started jumping about 5 weeks ago (the 24” jumps in the video I posted were his first,...
  19. Agility videos! (green dog & green handler)

    I'm a novice agility handler with big dreams who was fortunate enough to acquire a drivey young dog who seems to really love "the game." He's 20 months old now and we are having such a blast... I'm...

    The library is an interesting aspect of the situation.

    The $8.8m for the library renovations came from funds that were donated about 20 years ago and restricted to use in library improvements....

    No members of the SBC board that voted for closure have been retained. There are two individuals on the SSB board who did serve on the SBC BoD in the past (Christine Boulware '77 and Jo Ann...

    Yep, this. If you want to stay longer than 4 years at Sweet Briar, you must petition to the dean.

    I don't know anyone who has successfully petitioned to the dean. One of my fellow '08 majors...

    I'm pretty positive it was a "difficult leadership" issue. Several things were at play that would have made holding the Admissions Director position a nightmare:

    1. Admissions suspended their...

    This is actually a really sore point for me.

    Someone who is willing to donate a huge amount of money for improvements to the campus is surely interested in the school staying open. When people...

    That is what is so maddening about the situation.

    The school definitely took a hit when the economy tanked a few years back, but so did everywhere. Things have spiraled downward from there...
