    Attention Breed Experts

    Standard (or miniature) poodle!! They are all of the things that you want. My dog goes off leash with us all the time (obviously as long as its a safe area), is up for any training or activity, not reactive at all! Totally one of the most versatile breeds. I shave my guys down into a sporting...

    Let's Be Controversial

    Okay, I'll bite. :) I like and use prong collars and E-collars. I do feel like I "know" how to use them though, and use them as a tool. My dog doesn't use or need either now as I've faded them out. I strongly encourage people to rescue dogs, but all my dogs so far have come from good...

    Dry weather causing dry skin and itching?

    Hello. Yes dogs to get dry skin. As long as you have ruled out other things like you mentioned then I would add some Omega Fatty Acids (fish oil) to his diet. They will help better than lotion will. OFA's are a good idea in any diet as they help many areas of the body.

    The dog musing/vent thread

    Those with multiple dogs...

    Do you find that your dogs play with each other? If you brought in a second dog, did the established dog eventually enjoy it and play? Do they initiate play in the house if they are bored, or do you just have two bored dogs that you need to play with? I know that a lot of it depends on the...

    Draco pictures

    Thanks! Draco is a total twerp! Very few regal moments here! He is our only dog currently (though Im pushing for a puppy in the spring). My last dog was a standard too though. Standard poodles are the only breed for me! I have met some great mini and toys too though!

    Doggie Christmas

    Good idea about Ruffwear black friday! I didn't know they had one. I have been looking into winter coats, so Draco may get one of those. He is a ballohollic so any ball is a good ball. He also has a major thing for giant stuffed things! The bigger the better! He adores them and will lay and...

    Top 3 breeds you'll want someday and why?

    I don't honestly know if I want 3 different breeds in the future as weird as that sounds. I used to want so many different breeds and couldn't wait to try them out! Now, I feel like I don't need or really want anything else. Perhaps and most likely I will end up with something different just to...

I have a fleece coat for quick outtings and general warmth in the house. I am looking for an active coat though. I don't really like the ones that...
