    New Hip Dysplasia Reserach: Environment Has More Impact Than Orginally Believed

    With the research being done in Norway, I wonder if there is not some link to lack of Vitamin D and the development of osteo issues in developing pups.

    Picking pups, my choice or the breeders I've not picked any of my own dogs; they've all been picked by the breeder/agreed upon by myself, 3/5 have worked out fine. Indy (BYB APBT) - puppy that was being beaten up by his mom, "breeder" owed my gf a favour; she said Do you still want your...

    Dual/multiple sired litters

    I've read that if you do a surgical implantation of one sire into one horn and one sire into the other; it improves the odds; expensive all the way round though.

    Who has grouchy sleepers?

    I think it's very much a terrier thing (although little dogs can be a-holes about being moved too). Jiggs is my worst, he sleeps under the covers (his choice) and if another dog/human touches him from outside the covers; he sounds like he's going to tear you a new one -- never has bitten; just...

    Collie that won Westminster is son of double merle

    Lethal White Overo in horses is linked to the white colour though; but my understanding is it's a development in parallel with the colour. The syndrome has deafness, and intestinal issues noted in horses and similar syndromes with similar affectations are found in rats and humans.

    Can you load a clicker with toy/play?

    Oh thank you; that's so much what I was trying to wrap my head around - duh; two toys; who'd a thunk it (well you obviously; me not so much) off to play games with pup!

    Can you load a clicker with toy/play?

    I've been reading Killion's book; like it. Been reading her blog, nice. But her suggestion is clicker = food (calmer mind) and then a different noise for toy reward. My problem; low/no food drive dog, that is going to get ramped for a toy, and I need focus; that is where our problem lies (if...

    What color would this be?

    Brindle piebald with ticking. Ambull X Dutch shepherd is becoming a pretty popular cross for working dogs.

    What have been your experiences with dog-aggression (DA)?

    Dora - Boerboel - Fine in parallel with other dogs, both on/off-leash, has definite friends both male/female, neutered/intact, has a definite space bubble that she will enforce. Problem - other dog HAS to submit; she doesn't do well with dominant dogs (same as her). Jiggs - Rat Terrier - Again...

    What color is he?

    Seal, brindle or calicoing; my vote is brindle that wasn't visible before. Seal tends to be apparent on the flanks and behind the jaw and the armpits. Calico is when a black and tan face turns more tan; and it can creep onto the body.

    For those with intense dogs. A tail question.

    Dora is tail over the back (sometimes the tip touches the back of her skull) when she is "on" to something. When she actually is intent on "getting" the object; then her tail flattens. Here is tail flat as a pup (check out the wicked look on her face), the next shot was her pouncing on...

    Drive, biting, lack of control, balance

    I think I got lost in this thread. Are people actually advocating redirection from high drive dogs? Are you not correcting the **** out of these jerks and telling them where to put their teeth? Dangerous to the handler (and I do mean K-9), unacceptable to professionals (ask B. Flinks)...
