  1. Calm around other dogs and dog unfriendly people

    General Dog Forum
    Other than my old ladies, none of my dogs have any interest in other people or dogs in public. They just don't care. Well, Elsa is dog aggressive so we don't go to dog populated areas, but I've worked with her enough that she will completely ignore another dog in passing. I don't think I've...
  2. Hi! I'm a trainer using the Koehler Method, ask me your questions about it!

    Dog Training Forum
    This was a good pop back in for me on a lazy Saturday. Every thing is great in theory, ain't it, OP? Koehler aside, you can't preach any thing you haven't experienced. I've seen some recommendations that you get a dog and go through the training struggles, but I don't recommend that at all. I...
  3. Bad Dog!

    General Dog Forum
    Yes. Please don't put dogs like my girl in that position. She would seriously injure or kill your dog if I wasn't able to startle him back. We don't go to dog populated areas, but not every one with dog aggressive dogs are that courteous.
  4. What would really happen if I don't neuter my dog?

    General Dog Forum
    I have an intact male. He will be 5 this year. I have no plans to alter him. He can't even go to my job because he isn't altered, but that's the "biggest" loss. He doesn't do any of the stereotypes associated with intact males because he's trained. He has never escaped and will never have...
  5. I don't come around these parts any more..

    General Dog Forum
    Get off my lawn!
  6. What word do you use to recall your dog?

    General Dog Forum
    "Here" for casual things. "In" means serious business GET HERE RIGHT NOW. Proofed it by calling them in from the yard when they're hollering.
  7. I don't come around these parts any more..

    General Dog Forum
    I'm not sure why I fell off the forum. Just kind of constantly busy and rarely on the actual computer. I don't work weekends and since I'm just missing my dude I figured I'd putz around. Don't really feel like I have too much to add any more.
  8. I don't come around these parts any more..

    General Dog Forum
    I'm trying to remember it will get easier. I just always hoped they would go in their sleep. He had a tumor around his heart that burst and killed him instantly. The vet said there was no way to know and nothing that could be done. How sudden it was has made it worse I have some free time this...
  9. I don't come around these parts any more..

    General Dog Forum
    Picked up his ashes and brought him home for the last time today, so the hurt is pretty bad. I'm doing well otherwise. I live alone now and split custody of the dogs with my ex, so unfortunately Jack was not with me when he suddenly went. I work for the UKC now as well, so it's still all dogs...
  10. I don't come around these parts any more..

    General Dog Forum
    Just thought I'd pop in to let any long timers still hanging around or folks that remember him know that my Jack McCoy is gone. He passed away Wednesday, July 8th. Every one else is still alive and well, but I know my esteemed lawyer friend Jack had a lot of fans once upon a time when I was...
  11. Do you prefer a friendly dog or an aloof/wary of strangers dog

    General Dog Forum
    I have both, and I'm OK with both. I lean more towards aloof if I think about it. I do love that Shambles has zero interest in people when we're out and doing stuff. He's all business and it makes it slightly difficult to bike/skijor with Elsa when she's so damn happy to see any human being.
  12. Is Your Dog Neutered?

    General Dog Forum
    Every one is altered except for Shambles, who is 4 and will remain intact. Smalls was spayed at 3 years old, Jonas at about 3 as required by the rescue, Jack and Magpie were altered by their rescues as adults, and Elsa was spayed when she came to me. Just opted not to have two intact opposite...
  13. Norwegian Elkhound and translation?

    General Dog Forum
    Yeah, I would assume it's the breeder claiming they breed these super large dogs or maybe wishful thinking their puppy would get large. I don't know why one would want such an agile breed to be so large. Jack hovers around 50 lbs.
  14. Dying Hair from Red to Green/Blue

    Off Topic
    Hair stylist here. MY TIME TO SHINE. Green and red cancel each other out. That sounds ideal, but hair is a funny mistress. Depending on the shade of green, things will likely turn out a nice poop color. The only way you're going to get yourself to that kind of color is color stripping the hell...
  15. The Random Pictures Thread

    Dog Pictures Forum
    Little dude daycared too hard. Too tired to find an appropriate sized bed.
  16. Are You Scared of Any Dog Breed in Particular? Be Honest...

    General Dog Forum
    Malamutes. I don't really climb the walls around them or any thing and there are a few at daycare that I love, but I've been bitten in the back of the head by a Malamute and growing up a friend's family bred Malamutes that were incredibly scary. Just kept in a yard and unsocialized, so constant...
  17. Those with multiple dogs....

    General Dog Forum
    No. Every one hated Shambles equally. I did have a foster Pom puppy once that was IN LOVE with Jack McCoy. Could not leave him alone. Any where Jack went, that little fluffy idiot was following him even though Jack hated the guy.
  18. has anyone actually experienced littermate syndrome?

    General Dog Forum
    My friend has two 9 year old Labs that are litter mates and were raised together with no idea of littermate syndrome. They are generally OK, but they cannot in any way be separated from each other. The male hurt himself quite badly trying to get through the door when he tried to so much as walk...
  19. How many pets do you have

    Off Topic
    6 dogs, 4 guinea pigs, and 2 rats.
  20. Your dog's history?

    General Dog Forum
    Smalls came from a super rural kill shelter as a wee injured 5 week old baby. She defied medical logic and lived and she just turned 8. She was found as a stray by the shelter and that's all there was. Jack McCoy came to a rescue here from a kill shelter in Indiana. I have zero information on...
