    Would Your Dog Pass?

    I think we've had a thread like this before, but I thought it would be interesting discussion and fun to learn more about some of our dogs. So, I was wondering Would your dog pass a shelter temperament test? Stranger handling, resource guarding, prey drive, getting along with other dogs /...

    A plead from a fellow chazzer

    I know we all get busy, and I know sometimes our dogs can be a PITA. But my plead to you all today... Is to take a second, and not call them a PITA, not remind them affectionately how stupid hyper or annoying they are, but to give them a cuddle and some love and affection. And say something...

    Deaf Training - tricks?

    I am in denial and I don't want to admit this act all :rofl1: but..... Maddie is now deaf. She has a great base (11 years worth LOL), and I've always taught signals along with commands so the transition has not been too difficult. The things I've struggled with mostly was her running off...

    Chaz Tips... Living with A Maturing Dog

    I figured it'd be neat to have a thread where all of us can chime in with what we've experienced with our dogs aging, and what we're going through. Changes we've seen in our dogs and how we've changed along side them to cope with it. Plus, its always good to bounce ideas off of each-other - what...

    Jaw problems... Advice?

    My jaw has always has a click on the right side when I open it up. Usually it's only when I open it wide, but sometimes it's when I'm chewing. It's never caused me any pain, though the neurologist last year said it could be contributing to my headaches. The clicks have turned into a much...

But I was a little bored and also curious as to what chazzers think :) This is for future puppy 2014 (or later depending on finding a breeder, etc). I have decided that I...
