    Parents with kids in sports.

    Seller BEWARE!!

    Just watched this on the news... a family in L.A. advertising AKC Yorkie pups, at $2500.00 per puppy, just had 2 armed gunmen come into their home and steal the entire litter. One held the family at gun point while the other bagged up the puppies and an adult dog in a garbage bag, then left. For...

    I'd like to start a thread that collects dog owners favorite training books and videos, in one "location". Sorry, this is not for trainers yet!

Agility, flyball, schutzhund, tracking, competition...
