    I've only heard "stumpy tail" as a breed on COTH. With a quick google, it looks like some places interchange Blue Heeler and Stumpy. I guess it depends on how you define breed. For me, that means...

    Huh. So the COTH consensus is do not speak to dogs waiting alone in vehicles? I tend to, if I know there's a dog in there. Shoot, I'm crazy enough that I talk in the parking lots of trials even if I...

    You are lucky! I'm surprised the vet practice doesn't mandate you head straight to the ER for treatment. Cat bites, especially, are dangerous. Our protocol was iodine scrub then head to ER, where...

    Haha sorry I was using "smurf" as a COTH-ism. In dog-speak: a young, amateur, Nov A handler recently earned his first title in French Ring Sport using Plus Reinforcement techniques. +R is as uncommon...

    I'm sorry you were served such a fright! That's irresponsible and risky of the owner. Even a 'dog person' would have been scared.


    No, you speaking to the dog didn't trigger it. Your presence...

    Balanced training "balance" sounds good

    I think "balanced training" is a fantastic marketing term. You're supposed to balance your checkbook, your work-life hours, your muscles, your diet. So balancing your training sounds ideal, yes?

    My experience with artificial turf is in training facilities. I suspect it will hold stank. Depending on what's underneath, it won't drain well. It will get ripped up. Crushed stone will have better...

    Totally rational to buy a 36" crate 60+ miles away when:


    current dog is 8lbs
    current dog has four wire crates (don't make me count soft crates, too)
    imaginary Next Dog already has two...

    No one has mentioned thresholds. She can't think straight when a dog/new person is __ meters away. Find out where that is and start at __ - 2 meters.

    Oh I totally read your OP wrong. I was talking about dog on R. Dog on L looks very young; too young to tell breed. Spitz type.
