    High value non-smelly treats? Lamb lung, turkey heart, dehydrated liver wurst or other meats (super stinky in the dehydrater but fine once dry), Happy Howies meat rolls (avail thru Clean Run).

    The "look at me" game as Bluey said. Figure out was is a reinforcing reward for her. I'd be asking for eye contact and rewarding that. It could preface a frisbee toss or a ball throw or tug or just a...

    Here's my thoughts on Mali owners. Incredibly amazing breed. If you didn't research their need for a working career before you got one then someone is in for a rude surprise. OP sounds like you are...

    Older dogs do very well. Sometimes circumstances require it (someone having to go to a nursing home, a death) so everyone who gives these sweet seniors a home are angels to me. Thank you! For the...

    Smoofox I'm a dyed in the wool Border Terrier person. They are the best. I had JRTs before. I feel no guilt in getting a purpose bred puppy vs a rescue and I've had rescues. When I want something...

    if you like him so well, why don't you go back to his breeder for another puppy? Obviously you like how he turned out. The characteristics you mention I would expect to find in ANY well bred...

    Agility trainers won't ask about IPO unless you make a big deal of it. If you have your dog under control and you know how to direct the drive you will be fine. There are some extremely good Mals in...

    You can put the dog in the back with a 'gate' on the back so the dog is contained. Google Variogate for one. Put a barrier on the rear seat also. This is if you refuse to crate. Then leave the hatch...

    OP I signed my terrier up when she was about 9 months old for a beginner class mainly to have something else to 'play' with her beyond obedience and Rally. That was 7 years ago and I've pretty much...

    I'm like others. I took half days the first week I got the puppy. Then I hired a pet sitter to come by at midday for about three or four weeks. For one I used an expen with potty pads on the side...

    I do want to say though that I think it's great you are helping her get involved. I was one of those dog crazy kids and although a bit older than your daughter, I had a lot of dog people that really...

    I agree with others that suggest you sign up for the class and your daughter can watch and you can work together at home. Agility does take a lot of foundation work, so your daughter may get bored...

    Guess what? That is very old school and dog trainers don't do that anymore unless they are not smart enough to figure how to motivate dogs. I think of TBs as the Border Collies of the horse world....

    Hand stripping is not difficult. I use a rubber glove to help with grip and there are many stripping knives but I find the McClellans the simplest. You will be pulling out the dead hair so will NOT...

    I personally don't think an AKC conformation championship is the end all, be all requirement before breeding. I've seen a lot of dogs winning in the breed ring because of who is on the other end of...

    I'm with those who say check back with the breeder of YOUR bitch. Did you have a contract around future breedings? If not finding a breed mentor is your best bet. They can evaluate your dog, make...

    I always have to vote for the Dalmatian as they are my first love. Skip the crazy rescues and contact a breeder. Older or pup, they will LOVE at their breed participating in what they do best. The...

    Crate your dog in the stall. Get a tack stall, cheaper than a dog sitter. Put fans on the dogs. They will be fine. What do you think those of us competing in agility in the summer do? Dogs get no...

    For obedience and agility, a Papillion is a great choice. I also know several powderpuff Chinese Cresteds that do well. Cavalier King Spaniels.
