    ^^ because a dog pooped in the building they assumed it wasn't housebroken? That's so weird!

    Even the most well-trained dogs with super attentive owners sometimes have to go.
    Sh!t happens! ...

    Agreed. They are pretending they were "adopting out" these puppies, but really they are "breeders" and selling them. And scamming people. :no:

    An adoption fee to a legitimate rescue is a very...

    Maybe sunburn? Mites or bug allergy? It could be fungal, even if it's not rainrot.

    The dry, hard patchy skin sounds more worrisome to me than the curling hair. It could be PPID, but that...

    That's a good point. The ad talks about "adoption"....I'd be asking about that. E.g. is there an adoption fee?

    The fact that the mom & dad are in a picture together led me to believe that this...

    Agreed. I'm just responding to the "ideal" argument ("ideally you will groom for 45 minutes per day"). I don't think anyone has supported the argument that this is necessary for the horse. But for...

    I don't agree with this.

    I think what most purebred owners/breeders and breed clubs want is breeders that breed responsibly and well....not just let dogs reproduce. There are many breeders of...

    If you like the breed, I'd join the Chinook Club of America...It's $20.

    I would probably wait for both reasons - I got a puppy when my old dog was 14 (he turned 15 in April) but he is not "elderly elderly" and not on any pain meds. And I had 2 other dogs, so I was able...

    Somehow I think the transport from Ft. Sill OK to NY would end up negating the good deal. :)

    He looks much better!! It's hard to see the weight at first, and it's important to remember that they are adding fat on the inside, around their organs, etc. and you may not see the outward weight...

    ^^ I wouldn't read that much into watching pros at dog shows. Many of those dogs live on the road, and may not have received so much "training" as have learned that coming out of the crate is often...

    Find a good TRAINER and work with the dog. A good trainer doesn't have to exclusively use R+ or R- or anything else. MOST do both, whether you realize it or not - e-collars are not the only way to...

    I think it depends on what you are asking, and depends on the breed and the individual dog.

    I agree that dogs can come out of their crates without being wild and crazy. But I think a lot of...

    Well, what exactly are you asking, and what is the dog doing? It's hard to know if you are asking too much without knowing what you are asking. I don't think it's unrealistic to ask 9-10 month old...

    I agree - although I think these are separate things. "Recall" does not mean the dog is "free range". Many dogs have a great recall, but would not be trustworthy enough to be off-lead without...

    This is a multi-part problem.

    "Getting out" when a visitor arrives is not a problem with recall. I run my dogs off lead twice a day, every day, but if they "get out" their behavior is different. ...

    I think what is coming through on this thread is that many owners like to groom, and owners feel that the grooming condition of their horse is an outward reflection of their care & dedication.

    Take her temperature. Mine go off food when they have a fever; do you live in an area known for tickborne illnesses? That would be my first thought. If no fever, I would suspect colic and might...

    I agree, but I would ask about this. Every 3 weeks is pretty often, and almost unusually so - and then a horse that seems unusually sore. So...this would cross my mind.

    Well said.

    Once sold, the new owners were perfectly within their rights to obtain a 2nd veterinary opinion and follow it as they saw fit. The end.

    I would say she's giving you the middle paw. "I'll do what you ask, but only because you're forcing me." My dog will do this in the field. He will recall, but not because he wants to. Which, in...
