    I know you didn't ask how to cool him but I'm going to advise anyway: does he have a "trace clip"? I shave inner thighs, groin, and belly on my senior hairy. That gives me better access to those...

    I've been counseled to:


    Record good days and bad days and tally them up at the end of each week. At the end of the week/month, which number is greater?

    I'm completely drawing a blank on the names of the item and technique... it was a leather pad (ah! like this) used to methodically bang the horse all over to increase muscle tone. I remember reading...

    She's a critter-er, right? Have you tried fur tugs?

    I echo HoundHill: NEVER fuss at her when she comes to you, even if you don't like how she gets to you or how long she stays. If you want her...
  5. Hav A Heart Trap and less is more

    I would get a Hav-A-Heart trap, bait it, and have the handful of people most known to the dog (foster? shelter worker? new owner?) check and re-bait daily. When they go to the trap, sit quietly for...

    Looks like my original post was eaten. Paco collars combine leather and bling. I'd browse the cat section, too, for a toy.

    Paco Collars, where leather meets bling. I'd browse their cat section, too.

    So where did you get him from? I echo the advice of others: return to that source and get a puppy from his lines. It'll be faster, cheaper, easier, and more likely to achieve your goal of getting a...

    Took Keeper swimming yesterday. It's basically an hour of sprinting. It's been too hot to run him. He was dog tired ;).

    They suggest wearing shapewear underneath the weight of all of that beading. I'd pass out in the saddle.

    Definitely call AC when blood is drawn. Some police jurisdictions will say you accepted liability by your participation, so you may not receive compensation for vet bills. The priority here is...

    It is Wednesday. Do you want to try to squeeze in a lesson or ring rental before Monday? If so, email her again. Keep it brief and ask a direct question:

    "Hey Trainer, I'm following up. Are you/is...

    Oh my gosh it is so disgusting in the Mid-Atlantic right now. Mid-90's both in temps AND humidity. Yuck. Is she an Icelandic Sheepdog?

    I was braced for, "Owner refuses to take puppy back." but not prepared for, "Owner surrenders puppy to shelter."

    :no:

    Glad the puppy touched your heart and you are keeping an eye on her future.

    Sounds like the same exact tactic the rescue applied in the case of Piper, the purebred show Sheltie.

    Like french fry said, a regular ole body harness where the clip is along the back will likely result in sled-dog pulling. Have you tried a front-clip no-pull harness? Lots of people love them and...

    I know dogs who do both. The training cultures are very different, so you may get a lot of resistance from the trainers.

    I'd rather ask, "Is it asking too much of one owner?" :o Both are...

    I echo those who have said to increase the mental exercise. Physical exercise is different from mental exercise and I see different results in my apt-kept Border Collie.

    Nosework. That is all. :D...

    I think I borrowed that idea from Notes from the Dogwalker, who has actually done it. I had two little dogs: one senior 8lb Pap and one elderly 18lb mutt so a trash can is perfect. Now I have the Pap...

    For whatever reason, the owner sounded very scared. I hear that and I suddenly see a dozen red flags a-waving.

    You think 1) owner has no control of dogs and is physically overpowered by them and 2) those dogs will kill your dogs. You need to take serious action to keep you and yours safe.

    OP and I are in the same area. I'm guessing she's asking about yappiness because of all of the debarked Shelties we hear at our trials. The breed is notorious for barking. I've heard a wide variety...

    Browse through In the Company of Dogs

    I second the Home Goods recommendation. I've seen very pretty wooden pet gates there (I was tempted to buy one just cuz it was so nice. Step away. Step away!).
