    OK just watched it. Dog is a Boxer (with uncropped ears!), car was not moving, still in the driveway, dog looks like he ran back to house.

    Well yes, for Joe Average Dog Owner, neutering may be the best option for U.S. resident dog owners to prevent unwanted litters. However, increasing veterinary evidence brings into question whether...

    Sorry, I don't know of an animal behaviorist in that immediate area, the closest one I know of is Dr. Barbara Sherman, at the vet school in Raleigh, which really isn't too far, might be worth a...

    I don't have the reference, but I have read that zoo animals actually prefer working for their food to getting it free. Many zoos do this as part of their "enrichment" programs.

    It is much better...

    Can't imagine moving to where you don't know the HOA restrictions.

    OK, just retread this and realized I am not a "1%er". I am probably a ".01 or even .001% er".

    It just seems really normal to me to have large numbers of dogs, a breeding program, horses, etc.,...

    From my perspective, and those of my "Besties", a really great animal care person who could come to your home would definitely trump the daycare option.

    I have six or ten Irish Wolfhounds and four...

    Friends and I have speculated about forming a dog-centric living/retirement community with like-minded dog/horse folk. Actually I am fortunate to just about live in one. Our kennel club building is...

    OP, is it too late to sell your lot/house?

    I can't imagine living somewhere that didn't allow fencing!

    Sounds interesting!

    I would not be interested in a dog park or daycare center, and neither would my friends who compete, but I'm sure some people would. I think there might be a difference in...

    Would this work for you?

    http://www.spotlightgps.com/home.aspx

    It would not work for us, it uses T-Mobile which doesn't cover where we are.

    We always have our Specialties outdoors, but after this last one, I can see the wisdom of having it indoors, or at least having an indoor or covered option if the weather is truly awful.

    Good luck at the National, Scruffy! What breed? Maybe he will be too interested in what is going on around him to go down! Please come back and let us know how you did!

    If you really would prefer a Poodle, the cost is definitely not more than that of a GSD puppy.

    OP, I understand your dilemma! I think the intensity of a working relationship, especially when competition is involved, can be had with both dogs and horses.
