    I have a couple of the Timberwolf leashes as well, and as supafly mentioned, they do come with key rings. I take them off of my leashes, as I used to use mine as agility leads. I have the very thin...

    If keeping her claws well trimmed isn't helping and she was mine, I'd definitely try the softpaws, and maybe crating. As a last ditch effort, if she's focused her efforts on one specific area of the...

    You need a sacrifice for two reasons - one, to protect your pastures and two, to protect your horse from those lovely pastures. I don't know you or your horse, but the one smartest thing I did when...

    Doesn't hold too closely to his JC name, but if you like Cascadian, what about Cascading?
