Small Dogs > A soft flap or hard flap dog door ?

Although my pack has no experience with pet doors, they do make a dog door that works by remote sensor. The dogs wear a key to the door on their collar that when the dogs get so close to the door the door will open. The remotes can be used for both large and small dogs. However there are downfalls to the design such as you cannot put them in metal doors or metal walls.

Puppy Place > I am just curious about her breed. Thinking she is Dutch Shepherd but was told she cant be.

Of all the pictures I have seen of pure Dutch Shepherds she looks a lot like them. She just has a lot more white than is acceptable in the show ring. For some reason I cant get pictures to show up in the posts so I may have to make her a profile just so people can see her.

I have been puppy sitting a very young puppy for a while now and was told she was a pit bull but she looks nothing like my pit bulls did. I have been told that she was 8 weeks old but she doesnt have all her baby teeth in yet so I am thinking more around 6 or 7 weeks. I am planning on taking her in for a vet visit next week when Demon Shadow goes in for her shots. Her owner is going to pay me back for vetting her. They called her Aces but I thought they said Isis so that is what she responds to. My son knows her owners better than me and told me that they got her before her eyes were even open. I have seen pictures of Dutch Shepherd pups around her age and she looks much like them save the white on her paws and chest. I found a Dutch Shepherd forum and posted pictures of Isis there and was told that she is too trim for a Dutch as well as her face doesnt look like a Dutch Shepherd face. I will try to post a photo and let you all tell me what you think she might be.

Choosing the Right Dog > Dutch Shepherd Questions

She is beautiful. Isis is around 8 weeks or so and really cute. I got roped into puppy sitting for her owners last night and I found out some things about her that made me more than a little angry. My son who is almost 18 told me that he knows her owner really well and that they took her from her mom before she even had her eyes open. She is really sweet but she does a LOT of whining and crying if put in her crate. She doesnt read my two little dogs social cues very well at all because she was taken away from her mom way too soon. Garnet however puts her in her place pretty quickly. How fast did yours grow the first 12 weeks or so?

A friend of mine came over this week with their adorable puppy. She is about 8-12 weeks old and a beautiful golden brindle with white paws and a white chest but has a black mask much like a shepherd would. They said they were told that she was a pit bull but she doesnt have any of the looks that most pit bulls do. I have had many pits during the last 16 years and none of them have ever had the look that Isis does. She is so cute though. I guess what I am asking is if anyone has pictures of their Dutch Shepherds as puppies and what info there is out there besides what I have found on line. Like are they good with kids, other dogs, cats?

Behavior & Training > How Do I Deal With My "Scary" Leashed Dog?

The gentle leader head collar does work really well. I use it on volunteer days at the shelter when I go and walk dogs and for training the more hard headed ones. I am really consistent when using it on Casper my favorite dog there. He is 73 pounds of pure hardheaded muscle. We think that he is half white GSD and half Belgian Malinois but we arent sure. The director wanted me to walk him on a slip lead that if he had half a mind to he could snap it in a second and be gone. I showed her the gentle leader and walked him with it on once around her and she could not believe how much he changed just walking quietly beside me instead of lunging and pulling like a mad thing.

Food & Nutrition > free feeding

My dogs are all free fed and none of them are over weight. I just had them in at the vet last month for their shots and they are doing great. Three of the pack have gained a little weight which the vet said is fine. Blaize weighs 17.1 pounds Tundra is 54 pounds and Drizzit is up to 44 pounds. Tundra was 42 pounds last year and Drizzit was 32 pounds. Hailie, Tank and Bella look like they are being starved if they are not free fed but fed out of a bowl. The dog that I bring home every other weekend from the shelter where I volunteer is used to getting only one very small bowl of food per day and he is 73 pounds. How I dont know but he is a very powerful dog.

Rescue, Adoption & Happy Endings > I know he is part White German Shepherd but what else is he?

Not real sure what he is but I know that I love this big guy. I have him here at home right now because I brought him home for the weekend and with the sudden snow that we got yesterday I called the shelter this morning and they told me just to stay home and keep him warm and happy till the roads are safer to travel. He is a real sweetheart and I love having him around just have to dig out my bigger crate from the back of the garage. He accepts the crate beautifully and is getting better on the leash. We are doing a lot of training when out for potty walks.

For a few months now I have been volunteering at one of our local no kill shelters working with one big beautiful dog in particular. He is a five year nine month old neutered White German Shepherd mix. We think he might have some Belgian Malinois in him but we arent sure. The shelter got him in over a year ago and no one wants to adopt him at all. He is a big snuggle bug but can be a bit hard headed. His name is Casper and the shelter lets me bring him home with me every other weekend just to give him a few days away from the shelter. He does pretty well with my own dogs but some of the shelter dogs seem to make him real nervous. You can see a picture of him on Hailie's page as I havent figured out how to post pictures anywhere else.

Rescue, Adoption & Happy Endings > Stray Dog in the yard. Dont wanna call AC cause it will be put down how do I help it?

Saw Phantom today. He looks better a little heavier but still really shy. I could only get half way across the yard before I saw what he was doing. The neighbors behind us have chickens IN TOWN. one of the chickens escaped the yard and was scratching and pecking the ground outside the fenced in yard. The neighbors with the chickens have a 5 foot high unroofed chain link fence around their yard. Its not secure enough for coyotes or foxes or any other animal to not be able to get in to get the chickens or to keep the chickens in and safe. Anyway I watched Phantom the stray catch and kill this chicken then trot off across several yards with the chicken in his jaws. He is definitely GSD but he looks like a badly bred American GSD. I have a feeling that Hailie will get blamed for the chicken getting killed and carried off because she is one of the few GSDs in our area. I have proof that she wasnt the one who killed the chicken though because she was in her kennel and was eating out of her feeder at the time. I know because I had just filled her feeder up two minutes before.
