  1. Help with acclimating my new rescue

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I'm a new dog owner and I just adopted a 2 year old border collie mix- she's fantastic! She's certainly made progress in the week and a half that she's been here- giving me less trouble getting her out of her crate for a walk, eating pretty much as soon as the food is in front of her- but I want...
  2. Three Brown Dogs

    Dog Pictures Forum
    I'm new here, and thought I'd visually introduce my dogs! Rusty never leaves my side. He's rather anxious, but very good at reading human emotions. He's the only non-rescue, non-stray dog I've ever had, but he's not from a breeder either: he's an odd story. I was 11 years old, almost twelve...

    Attention All New Members
    About two weeks ago I adopted a shepherd/Border Collie mix from a shelter in southern Oregon. I lost my beloved Shepherd/husky mix just over a year ago now, and I gotta say, having a dog in the house again is bringing up a lot of tears. I know its part of the healing process, that dog was with...

    Hi guys. I adopted a 9 year old black lab mix that I adopted about 4 months ago. I met him a few times before I took him home with me, and nothing appeared out of the ordinary with him.

  11. Need help developing focus and motivation for difficult McNab

    Dog Training Forum
    TLDR: treats don't work, strong environmental focus, play is inconsistent motivator, starting over training from scratch. I've had boots for about 9 months now. I got her as a puppy who had been more or less locked in a horse trailer for 6 months. She's a very sweet and somewhat worried McNab...
