    This pisses me off!

    As both a dog owner and a mom I feel this situation just sucks. In a perfect world parents don't lose sight of their kids and dogs aren't left outside unsupervised. Unfortunately the world isn't perfect and stuff like this happens. I don't know how I feel about what should happen. I...

    Multiple dog folks ?

    Arya never gets solo time. Bandit gets to snuggle in my bed every night without Arya though. I am not really into exercising dogs at different times. It gets done all together. They are a nice combo so I can't complain. I had to when I had Spanky and Bandit and it was exhausting. I also...

    Dog parks

    It was pretty vacant yesterday so I let arya and bandit in the dog park yesterday... It went well but only because there were only two other polite dogs there. I scoped it out before entering

    Chaz Moms and Moms-to-Be Chat (everyone welcome)

    I didn't even really prepare for Blake because I found 99.9% of everything just a novelty with Briggs. Blake's pregnancy flew by. Actually the whole four years since having kids has. And toddlers are weird little creatures. Blake went from being a pretty easy baby (just never wanted down) to...

    Horse racing

    I think the horse world needs to get with the times. I am not 100% only use positive reinforcement but horses are still trained a lot of the time in the horse version of Cesar Milan's style. I know a lot of people in the racing industry and I hate how disposable a lot of people treat their...

    The dog musing/vent thread

    I forgot to crate Arya the other night and she obviously just snoozed all night on the couch because the house was untouched and she was sleeping with her feet right up in the air. She had never tried climbing on the furniture before and now she thinks she is queen of the castle.

    What's a good tug toy?

    Bandit and Arya both love tug and I'd love to build up her play drive (Bandit already has plenty). I have always just used old horse leap ropes with him but yeesh does that clip hurt when it smacks you. I'm on the hunt for a durable tug toy that has some length to it. Where do I get one? What...

    Members of the fluffy dog club... are they too warm under there?

    Merlin and bandit have similar coats. Bandit gets really overheated in the summer BUT shaving him seemed to be a way worse option. His skin got burnt and he was still overheated.

    Is your dog graceful or a clutz?

    Some of those zoomie dogs are like that. Bandit was like that when he was Merlin's age too but now he's a dignified posh old man.

    Is your dog graceful or a clutz?

    My boyfriend and I were talking about the huge difference between Bandit and Arya today. I never noticed how graceful B is till we got Arya. Everything he does seems to be all about being effective. He has great coordination and rarely does something that causes him to lose his balance. He even...

    what are your dogs leash manners like?

    Arya is the worst for tangling me. Bandit never does and whiles he keeps her leash loose more often she walks behind me and switches sides. Or she will switch back and forth sides with Bandit while sniffing. She irritates both of us. I'm really impressed with how fast I've taught two dogs to...

    what are your dogs leash manners like?

    Are they good at loose leash walking? Do they rip your arm out of your socket? Somewhere in between? Bandit used to keep the leash taught and only pull when he saw a squirrel or other dogs. I didn't want arya doing the same as I could not physically hold them both if they reacted like that at...

    How are your dogs with cats?

    Arya has never seen a cat but bandit is good if he cab meet the cat inside or if it doesn't bolt. He will chase random cats that run
