    Intact males + females

    Well this is apparently a thing I'm going to have to learn to deal with relatively soon. So what do other folks do, what is your system for dealing with everyone when your female is in heat??

    My mutts

    Some recent pictures minus Juno; she's been on the IR list for a couple months with a shoulder injury, makes her much less interesting to photograph when she can't do anything fun lol. IMG_7403 by cinSun9, on Flickr IMG_7528 by cinSun9, on Flickr IMG_7535 by cinSun9, on Flickr...

    Sawyer the almost-adult

    Ok not really, so he's only 5 months old lol but he looks TOO GROWN UP in the pictures I got of him today. And I feel like I haven't shared him on here lately. He's still doing great, training is going well, the toughest thing so far is that he LOVES PEOPLE and he doesn't believe me when I...

    When to intervene?

    Juno and Sawyer love playing together. However his sharp little puppy teeth like tugging on her neck and she's really cut up now! She enjoys the play but... should I be intervening? I hate to do it if everyone is happy, but I don't know she probably shouldn't have a bloody neck either.

    Soy Sauce ft. Juno

    Just some recent adventures! Sawyer's had a busy week - he started puppy class, has visited different parks, went to an outdoor concert, went to a busy event at the dog park and watched a disc competition, and today went to a barn hunt practice - where he actually had great instinct! I was not...

    Car chasing tendencies?

    So Sawyer does fantastic on walks but one thing I'm noticing is that when a car drives by, he will shoot out to the end of the leash. Like he'd probably just go after it if the leash wasn't stopping him. Thus far he doesn't really acknowledge anything else and I obviously don't want this to...

    Poop containment?

    Yay fun thread :p Okay I'm just wondering what everyone else does with the dog poop in their yard. I don't have the luxury anymore of having a decent sized fenced in backyard where poop only needed to be picked up once or twice a week and tossed in the trash and all was well. My situation...

    Baby Cattle Dog

    His name miiiiight be Sawyer. He is sassy as all get out and to my delight has found chasing and tugging toys to be really fun! We were out and about a lot today and he met a lot of different people and he just completely took everything in stride. And it is all coming back to me that...

    Refinishing bathtub?

    I have a strange question. Word on the street is that the bathtub at my new house needs to be refinished - I never actually looked in the tub the 2 times I've been in there, but my sister and my realtor thought it looked like it needed some help. I have quite a few other things I'll need...

    Help me brainstorm!

    I'm really trying to put a lot of thought into what breed I want next, but am having an impossible time coming up with breeds that fit. I'm looking for - -Medium size (like 30-50lbs) -Can safely live with other dogs/cats -NOT a soft temperament. Cajun is way too soft and it's pretty easy...

    Vibes for Lucy?

    So I've noticed recently that Lucy has been feeling thin, she had her teeth cleaned in January and was at a pretty perfect weight at that point. But now her spine is really prominent, her ribs not as much so but still more noticeable than they need to be. I mean for a sedentary dog she feels...

    "Victory laps" / disc peeps?

    Or I'm sure anyone who plays fetch with their dog knows what I'm talking about. You throw it, dog runs and grabs it, and instead of bringing it back... they just trot around all proud of themselves. SO. Tips for getting Cajun to be better at refocusing to me for the next throw, instead of...

    I think most of you know, I had Happy put to sleep 1 week ago. She was such a sweet girl. Senior dogs are hard. From the moment I sent in my adoption application, I thought this was a dog who was on super borrowed time - like, maybe I'd get a couple months from her. The months went on, then...

    Some major adulting today.

    I put an offer on a townhouse today. And I'm kind of freaking out. :yikes: The good things - it's cheap, less than 10 minutes from work, there's a big park at the end of the street that will be good for off leash dog stuff, there's a nice yard in front where I could easily have a tie out for...

    Handler sensitivity

    Just something random I often ponder, and now feel like sharing. :p I see quite often, dogs being yanked around on choke/prong collars, being shouted at, what have you and the dogs just don't care. It does nothing to alter their behavior, doesn't make them stop or even slow down, they're...
