    Do you consider your dog "breed worthy", hypothetically?

    You can HAVE little Ash. He's a bag of nerves!! And i can't seem to find his focus anywhere... (looks under couch cushions)

    Do you consider your dog "breed worthy", hypothetically?

    Only a tentative yes on the new kid. Pixie is from a backyard breeder so her structure is a nightmare. However, she's always had a great work ethic and was a breeze to train. She's not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but she has a lot of heart and always tried her best. Emma is from...

    Would you Pick Your Dog All Over Again?

    Hmmmm, i want to say yes, but then i'm distracted by a pacing and whining blue coyote. Pixie, Emma, Page and Nova all turned out to be more dog than i could ever dream of. Pixie was an awesome little sports dog and the perfect dog for me to begin my adventure into the world of dog sports...

    A bit psychotic, perhaps?

    I just love her ears. She's so adorable! She reminds me of my Boston. Despite the fact that she's 10lbs, she's always been convinced she's 10 feet tall and bulletproof.

    Puppy + Job = ?

    When Ash was a puppy i set up an ex-pen to take up a large chunk of my kitchen. I taped garbage bags to the floor and covered most of the area with newspaper, then put a folded blanket in there, along with toys, a small bowl of food and a bowl of water. While it was messy when i got home, he...

    car rides with a dog

    Usually my dogs are free. But it depends who i'm taking and how long we'll be there. Nova is i think my only dog that isn't an anxious mess if i leave her alone in the car (such as at a dog event) so i have a crate in there for the other two. But it's more for when we are parked than moving.

    Srsly, you guys, who wants this awesome dog?

    If she was just a teeny bit older! I don't know if I could handle another dog under 2. But if the ex takes the cattle dog...

    Herding or working dog?

    I know of one malinois rescue in this area, so if my ex takes the cattle dog, i'll be shootin' them an email. Heck, the ex was more high maintenance than all my dogs put together, so maybe replacing him with a malinois foster is an even trade lol

    Herding or working dog?

    All of this is very good to know. i'm so glad i posted this question. Nikki, do you feel that Belgians (let's say Malinois) are as prone to SSA as GSDs? I do like the black dogs, but the few i've met have been a bit more nervy than i like. They seemed very reactive and suspicious. Neither of...

    Herding or working dog?

    i don't mind dog aggression in general, hell, i have amstafs! But with these amstafs there's always the possiblity you can have 3 dogs that have to be separated at all times. I've accepted that and planned my life around it. So if i'm bringing another breed in, i'd prefer their DA be lower and...

    Herding or working dog?

    Milos mommy, i considered them... but i wasn't sure about protectiveness and ability to live with amstafs. These guys are like bulls in a china shop. Full contact family! lol Thank you Nikki! I do worry about DA, but only because i have these amstafs. I'd like my "good" breed to be sorta what...
