    Attention Breed Experts

    I know this might sound crazy since you said you didn't want hair, but you might consider a Belgian Tervuren. In my brief experience, (the past year) Niko has had one major coat blow that was handled very well by a professional grooming/ blow out. Otherwise than that brief period, he hardly...

    Preparing for my first shedding apocalypse. Advice? Experiences?

    Hi! Thanks for the response. :) Living with a Terv has been great. I haven't raised a puppy in 20 years and being involved with Niko's breeder before he was even conceived and seeing him develop every step of the way was so cool. I lucked out with a great breeder who is so supportive and was...

    Kennel Cough Duration?

    Hi Everyone The other day my almost 8 month old pup started occasionally coughing like he was trying to clear his throat and then would retch up a bit of clear phlegm. At first I though he had something bothering his throat but checked it out as best I could and saw no issues. I researched...

    Another Hair/Shampoo Thread

    I almost never jump in on these types of threads but I got to say I can't believe the difference WEN hair care non lathering shampoo made with my hair the past 2 1/2 weeks. It takes some getting used to and I'm not sure how to describe it, but it has just made my hair much easier to style, and...

    Zippy chest hair growth with melatonin

    Yeah, actually I believe it was Sizzledog who told me about it --I believe she used it on her Dobes. I also think Dekka tried it as a calming agent for her dog. I have to say, I don't think it has had any type of calming influence on Zippy LOL! I also like that its really inexpensive and since...

    Zippy chest hair growth with melatonin

    Thanks! I know I need to get out of lurkdom more often LOL! Its difficult with lighting etc to see the real difference in the photos. I also have not been very scientific about it since I started the Nupro and melatonin at the same time --improvement could be from either one --but either way...
