    Bullets and burgers.

    Certified by who? Who verifies certification? As I said many instructors are NRA certified. BUT many have no more qualification than being an air force cook for 4 years and have a buddy that owns a range. Granted with high end instruction you're going to have people with real training...

    Bullets and burgers.

    Because it can be a matter of life or death. Firearms are involved in about 8K homicides (down from 11K several years ago, while ownership has increased from 35% of households to over 50%) which includes justified homicides (self defense & police shootings). Estimates for the use of firearms in...

    Bullets and burgers.

    Bullets and burgers.

    One round at a time is kind of contrary to the point of shooting machine guns.

    Dangerous Dog Law

    Sadly in many places this is true. In many jurisdictions the law does not discriminate between a provoked or unprovoked bite, but does generally exempt police K9 dogs even if the bite is unprovoked.

    Public perception vs dog community norms

    I am surprised at the number of people who should know better but don't. When a veterinarian or one of their employees incorrectly calls a fit dog underweight, I call them out for their ignorance on the spot. I don't care who is around. What also kills me is REALLY active people who don't...

    What's the rarest dog breed you've met?

    Rarest and MET, a true koochi dog bred by Koochi nomads in Afghanistan. I have also met several Iraqi landrace LGDs, herders and mixes of the two. I have met Okinawa Inu. Viequensie dogs (pariah type native to Vieques Island). American Staghounds in Iowa. I've met every kind of tree hound and...

    Working vermin dogs?

    Working vermin dogs?

    A cash business might be a hard sell, a trade based arrangement might work. BUT to get your foot in the door you need references to the quality of service and freebies are going to get you that.

    Working vermin dogs?

    Just take her hunting. Find as many farms as possible that will let you tear through old hay and straw, feed bins, compost and manure piles. She'll either become driven about it or not.
