*yawns*

It's too darned early for this, but the little brother insisted I stop by.

Some of our best memories came from the Moosehead, I'll never forget them (even with all the memory loss that comes with old age BOL). Even though I haven't been around much these past few years, know that I still think about you every day. I've tried to do you proud by eating fast, but I don't think I'll ever be able to beat your record wink
We'll be together again one day, I know you'll be the first one at the bridge to meet me smile

I'm glad pups are coming back one last time to say goodbyes. It's sad, but it's nice to have a reunion, reminder of the old days.

Behavior & Training > These dogs love eating poop

1) Fecal matter is the waste product of the digestive system. So this can include parasites, bacteria, and viruses. You don't know the health of the dogs dropping these "snacks" for yours, so there is a definite risk when your dogs eat it.

2) Teach a good "leave it" and "drop it" command. Be diligent about watching where their mouths are as well.

3) Some dogs just eat it just because. My beagle, for example, has been fed many brands of food ranging from ok quality, to great quality, up to a balanced raw diet. None of those things affected his affinity for crap.
There are things that you can put in the food to stop your dogs from eating each others feces, but if they're going after other dog's stuff there's not much you can do in terms of food.

Behavior & Training > Can an underground fence system permanently traumatize a dog??

In my experience, dogs will respond and learn better when there is a barrier that they can physically see.
Most dogs wont relate that "ok so these parts of the yard are electric, but these aren't."
Whereas if you use something like the flag system, they can then relate the flags to being the source initially. As the dog familiarizes himself with the flags being something to stay away from, you can slowly remove them and he should still understand the border.

As for getting him to enjoy the yard again, make 3 out of every 4 times in the yard a strictly positive experience. Use treats, toys, etc. to make the backyard a good place without introducing the fence. Then on the 4th time do a tiny bit of fence introduction (beeping with flags out or whichever you chose to mark the boundary). Then make it all positive again in the "safe" areas.

Rescue, Adoption & Happy Endings > Rescued dog, wondering what breed she might be?
Rigby

Barked: Thu May 1, '14 4:40am PST 
Min Pin Akita mix?
Not likely!

Akita's are usually at least 24 inches tall and more than 80lbs, where Min Pins are typically less than half that height and under a quarter of that weight. Not to mention, neither of them are overly popular breeds - not really conducive to random breeding.
But then again, my former vet told me that he didn't know what a Kelpie was and said that Rigby was "definitely mostly Jack Russel"
Most vets aren't breed experts unless they also find the time to do conformation shows or breed themselves. And even at that it's still only a few breeds they'd be familiar with.



As for Bella, I wouldn't rule out hound of some sort, beagle or otherwise.
I know I've seen a face like hers before, but I can't for the life of me remember where or what mix they suspected the dog was...

Potential sighting about 16 hours ago, not sure anything came of it.

Good news is that there does seem to be quite a few sightings,and I think they've narrowed it down to one area that she seems to be sticking around

Choosing the Right Dog > What is your dream dog(s)?

Cobain is my "dream dog" aside from a few minor adjustments I'd make.

To be entirely shallow, the only thing aesthetically I would change about him is giving him the full white blaze around the neck, and a bit more symmetry on the face.

In terms of personality, I just wish he didn't look so miserable and depressed all the time laugh out loud Many of his short-comings I feel are my fault and my lack of training experience (especially when I first got him).

If I could have different versions of him for the rest of my life, I'd be happy.

Too bad his breeder went a different direction with the lines...

I got the Canicross starter kit for 2 dogs!

Rigby's is a little big still, but totally functional.
We finally have a nice day to try it out, now to teach Rigby to pull laugh out loud

I agree with Cohen and JT on this one as well.
My preference when the leash is on that the dogs walk properly.
That means no pulling, no sniffing, and no defecating or marking.

With Rigby that means walking in a heel because she's got fear issues. It seems to help her when she's totally focused on me opposed to worrying about other people/dogs. With Cobain it simply means no pulling as he's never had a problem with passerbys.

However, they get a pile of off-leash work as well. So to them, the leash means to behave. I'm sure if I did not have the opportunity to allow them such ample off-leash work, my methods and preferences would change.
