Talking Can there be a new Discussion/Forum section?

I'd really like a Behavior section, for questions about digging, herding, instincts, the way dogs learn, etc. If I have a question about a behavior, but am not looking for ways to resolve it (like training) it doesn't really fit in the training forum. The next best thing is the general dog discussion forum, my only qualm with that is it gets lost amongst other discussions and can be hard to find again.

I'm not sure if I stand alone on this, or if other people agree, and I wonder how much hassle it would be to make another forum section, but I thought I'd at least mention that the idea crossed my mind and I would like to see it.

Thoughts?

To be honest, I don't see why questions like that (dog behavior and instincts to different breeds) can't stay in the general dog discussion. I find it hard to keep up with all the new posts with so many sub-forums.

Now if you wanted a sub-forum for questions about herding, bird dogs, tracking, SAR, therapy dogs, etc I could see a need for something like that.

Just my opinion, though.

Liz, maybe the Agility and Dog Sports forum needs to be changed to just a "Dog Sports" forum?

Agree. I think that would be most inclusive. Not that it's blatantly exclusive, just I think this title would be better,

Jes with Boone and Tempie in SAR off the top of my head, we also have some that hunt with dogs and there might be some on here that have herding dogs that work not just trial but I'm not sure.

And that's just people active in it, not the ones that might be interested.

There are quite a few service dog owners and trainers, that would count as "work," too, right?

I tend to not scroll down past the Grooming forum, because that's all I can see on my screen at one time. And I do mostly look at Training/General Dog Chat/Fire Hydrant. I'd be really happy if both the Sports and Puppy forums were moved up, they seem to get more traffic than, say, Grooming.

*shrugs* But it doesn't much matter to me either way.

I will agree that the General Dog section seems to get bogged down, it might be good to try to split it into more subforums.

Half the 'sport people' don't post even agility threads in the sport subforum. Can't forsee a new subforum on behaviour being used better.

I said no thankyou just because I often forget to check outside the fire hydrant, general and training. The other forums don't move as fast so I only really see them when they pop up in new posts.
