    So what do I need to do....

    I wish I had anything to offer, but I'm fairly sure this ship has sailed

    Can't access from my computer?

    Just seeing this... Is the issue ongoing or is it resolved? And how do you attempt to access from your computer? Do you follow a link or type in

    I've 3D printed a new dog gadget and would love your opinion

    I think it's a neat idea. I would try it if the price was reasonable. Honestly though, I would STILL wrap the 'extra' lead around my wrist/hand while using the Leash Mate because it makes me feel safer, as though I have a better grip on the lead if something should go tangent. :)

    Does Your Dog Invent Rules?

    Orson? yes, but not as extreme as Leo :p He's big on making (and keeping) boundary rules...not entering/exiting places without permission (like Leo) but then he's big on NOT following rules I make for him! Go figure! LOL Crowley? He still peeps around to see if I'm watching before...

    Poop bags

    ^that. It's annoying trying to get them open (and sometimes even getting them ripped off the roll!) when I only have my 2....can't imagine trying to open one while holding any more! LOL

    Registered Name Ideas

    I really like Morgan's Krypto Flying High! I have no original suggestions, I'm terrible at this kind of thing, LOL

    Have you been turned down by rescues?

    Never been turned down/away BUT...we own our house, do have a fenced in backyard, no intact animals, and keep all 'required by law vaccinations' up to date. I do know/am friends with people who HAVE been turned away because of not owning their home and the fence issue. Of course it drove them...

    Prong collars

    I hope you find a way to get past it StompinT, for you and your dog :) I'm glad you stopped feeling bad about it Southpaw, you are a wonderful owner who tries their best and loves their dog/s. Anyone who judges you based on a tool you need isn't worth your time anyway :) I've tried...

    Done :) I would like to add that I like the name "Millie Starlight Sprinkles" even better than the drawing....very creative naming :D

    Prong collars

    ^That is exactly what I was going to respond to Brushnazzy. And honestly, THAT was about where I was with Orson's pulling. As I stated before, I struggled with him for TWO YEARS of walks EVERY DAY. He acted like a dog who never got walks each time! The crazy dink even pulled with a gentle...

    Prong collars

    For Orson, (at age 9 now) the prong is about his crazy pulling. I can't say I am using the prong to train him really and that's on me. It's just a deterrent from the pulling and as long as he has it on, his manners are great. Hence the flexi/prong combo when we are hiking/camping. It allows...

    Prong collars

    I can't say I'm experienced in all things Flexi, but the recoil in the flexi I personally use on Orson is as close to negligible as it gets. Honestly, he gets more pressure/correction on his leather lead from his own pulling than he's ever experienced with the flex. I also wanted to say in...

    Prong collars

    1. Not against them as long as the person is using them appropriately. 2. Yes, I would and do use a prong collar on Orson. It wasn't my first choice, I tried several different things before a prong but I wish I had tried it sooner! For two years I struggled every. single. day. on our...
