    I walk my guys off leash pretty much every day so they get a chance to run. Their absolute FAVORITE thing is when I put them in down-stays and walk really, really far ahead of them. As in, so far...

    I made the switch like you would any dog food change (gradually over a week or 10 days). For most of the foods I tried, I bought a small bag and let him finish the bag before I made a decision about...

    There is some great advice in this thread, but I'd like to caution you that some dogs never really learn to like being touched.

    My sheltie has just never really enjoyed being pet- he's not...

    My sheltie had a nasty, persistent case of giardia as a young pup and his lower digestive tract has never been quite the same since. So for all intents and purposes he has IBS.

    I have heard radio silence from my friend since I told her I didn't think the dog was suitable, and this morning a Facebook comment thread tells me her aunt (the one who helped her pick the dog out,...

    Thanks, guys. I really appreciate your input and support. I still haven't heard back from my friend, but I'm feeling more confident today about my decision to tell her I don't think the dog is...
  7. Did I do the right thing? (friend's wannabe service dog)

    A dear friend of mine has a serious physical disability, and decided to get a service dog. The wait list for trained service dogs is long, and so she decided to get a dog and train it herself.

    I...

    I have a 2.5 year old sheltie and a six month old Briard.

    Here they are together a few weeks ago. :)

    Ummmm... so while I can't speak for the OP or anyone else, I can tell you that I practice agility 5-6 times a week. Saying you can't practice every day without breaking your dog down is like saying...

    I agree but also respectfully disagree with applying that opinion to the case at hand.

    If someone said to me, "I would like my dog's exercise requirements to be met with a half hour on-leash walk,...

    I see maybe Husky x merle Smooth Collie?

    Basenjis are a rare breed, so I'd say he's unlikely to be a basenji mix. I see a collie-type dog (collie, sheltie) in the face shape and coloring, and I...

    Also... I'm in the process of raising a high-drive, bred-to-the-nines, high level agility prospect puppy (a 6 month old Briard- dad's a GCh and got HIT in herding at Briard Nationals last year; mom's...

    I totally understand, I'm in the same boat with dogs replacing horses. :yes:

    It sounds like you understand the requirements of the breed, and although I have no desire for a Terv myself, I...

    Some dogs can get really obsessive about laser pointers. The obsession can generalize to shadows and lights, too. If your dog is the obsessive type I would avoid this.

    When I use the laser pointer...

    "Bundle her up in a coat and boots and get walking" is my best advice as well.

    However... I have a 6 month old giant herding breed puppy and a 2 year old sheltie who is unfamiliar with what...

    There are lots of wonderful rescue dogs out there, so that's always something to consider! My first sheltie was a rescue and he arrived obedience- and house-trained. As others have said, a greyhound...

    I have a dog who has some crate issues and resource guards (only from other dogs, not people) and I've spent a lot of time working through his issues. He was never as bad as your guy, but had a lot...

    I absolutely agree.

    All the article is suggesting, however, is that people should consider perhaps not actively reminding gay individuals that they believe they're sinners, abominations, and going...
