I'm sorry you can't fathom the kind of responsibility that owning a dog entails. Believe me, I'm very in touch with reality, I know how much vet bills cost, I know how much food costs. I have financial padding to ensure that I am prepared. Things happen. I will not put my pups to sleep because they happen to end up with an ailment that "costs too much".

You are so very focused on money and how much being responsible might cost you. I wonder that you want a dog at all. Houseplants are quite cheap.

Guest, your ignorance is on display.

Dogs are not play things. You are not entitled to have one. They are not "designer items" to be searched out for a better price. How selfish you must be to be willing to support such a cruel frankly, evil industry as puppy mills.

A good breeder cares about their pups and who gets them. Most will barely break even. They want a relationship with the owners and will be there to offer advice and coach you through any problems that arise.

Frankly I find your attitude disgusting. Dogs are complex, amazing creatures. You are not entitled to own one. If you are that concerned about money perhaps you shouldn't be looking into owning anything more worrisome than a house plant, no vet bills, and after all you wouldn't want to spend too much money on that creature who has devoted themselves to you.

I am a proud owner of two dogs, one from a shelter, the other from an excellent breeder. I would be on the street before my dogs went without. They are not just my animals. They are my partners. It'll be a cold day in hell when I forget that.

I can't comment on either GSDs or Mals, but just a thought on the vet's recommendation.

I wouldn't trust most vet's recommendations on the appropriateness of a breed for a person. To do surgery on my dog? Evaluate their health? Sure, but not tell me which breed is the best fit. I had a vet tell me once that Newfies tend towards unstable temperaments and SSA! (Because they were just like hairier, black Mastiffs...) naughty

I'd much rather take advice from an experienced owner. Good luck in your search, Mulder's a great person to get information from, she knows her stuff. smile

Behavior & Training > Dog Fights in the Snow

Does one of them get really excited or have the zoomies in the snow?

My younger dog tears around the yard whenever it snows and my older dog will play the Fun Police and sometimes try to get her to calm down by correcting her. Maybe one of your pups is getting too excited for the other?

Service & Therapy Dogs > Laws Pertaining to Service Dogs in Training?

No. Service Dogs in Training are not covered under the ADA. Each state has different laws regarding SDiT, some very helpful and some non-existent.

Unfortunately, since your pup is still in training your landlord is not required to allow him in housing that is not pet-friendly. (unless your state law says differently)

I know that some handlers consider their dogs Emotional Support Animals during the training phase, since ESAs are covered under the Fair Housing Act they are allowed in housing that is not pet-friendly. I believe you are required to provide your landlord with a note from your psychiatrist or doctor if your dog is an ESA. (I'm not a hundred percent sure on this. It's been a few years since I had to look these laws over.)

This is what I recall, like I said it's been a few years since I had to review this information, hopefully some more experienced handlers will chime in. Good luck to you!
