you all have given lots of food for thought about solutions in the yard...........thanks!........i am thinking it may be fun to domajor sections with different solutions, like a patchwork quilt........the dog yard is about an acre,so plenty of room for variation

hosing off and bathing isn't an easy deal with the anatolian.......before i got him at 18 months, some IDIOT had abused him with water.........either beat with a hose, jet streamed with water, something like that........his fear of hose and water could be dangerous...............i'v been working on it, but he is still scred............loves water in the wading pool. but running water and/or hose is off limits.........
