  1. Is it O.k to wash nylon collars and leashes in the washer? Will the color bleed? I need to know how to look after my dogs collars and leashes. Any help would be appreciated. P.S all my equipment is nylon.
  2. I'm trying to teach my dog the hold it commande. It's so he will hold an item in his mouth without dropping it. I'm trying to do it but he won't. Does anyone know how to teach this commande?
  3. Are they greyhound mixes?
  4. Does anyone have a mixed breed? All the dogs I've ever owned except 2 was a mixed breed. The two purebred dogs I owned were Lassie[rough collie] and Lady[smooth collie]. As for my mixed breeds I have owned Miquette [rat terrier mix] Samantha [australian shepherd\border collie] And I currently own Bear[ siberian husky1\3 german shepherd] Duke [Sheltie\ Border Collie] and Riley [rottie\lab\pointer]. I love mixed breeds because they're are no two alike and you can have your two favorite breeds in one dog.
  5. I had a terrier and she never ate her poop. That could make sence since duke is a herding dog on both sides of his family. Sheltie and border collie.
  6. I rescued a sheltie mix from the shelter a year ago. We would like to find out what is the other side of his family. We believe it is possibly border collie. I don't have pictures but I will describe the best I can. He is 40 LBS and is blond with white marking. He has round brown eyes and has a long snout and a mane on his chest. He has tufs of fur on his butt and he is 18 inches high at the shoulders. Do you think this could be border collie?
  7. I rescued a dog from the shelter almost two years ago. He was just a pup and we were not sure what he was. We no there is definitely some pointer because he is tall, slim, has black spots on legs and back and points at birds but as he matures he looks more and more like a rottweiler. He lives with my grandparents and they are conserned. My grandmother is scared of pitt bulls, german shepherds and rotties. When she was a child they had a horrible reputation. He also is showing aggresion towards my uncle who lives with my grandparents and he got snapped the other day. I was wondering if you could tell me how to handle this dog since I never owned a rottie mix before. I'm scared that we won't train him correctly and he will become wicked. Please tell me how to handle this dog and how to avoid aggresion. I love the breed and I believe there are not bad dogs just bad owners. Please help me.
  8. bernese mountain dog, rottweiler or border collie.
  9. My dog eats his poop! He is a 1yr old sheltie\border collie x .He did this before when he was young but he stopped but he started again. We tried scolding him and he knows he is doing wrong. We tried the specialty food from the vet but it didn't work. we might try garlic pills. any suggestions?
  10. Thats what I would like to do in the summer too. Bear is my main consern because he lives outside near the swamp. Since I don't have a kennel yet he is tied on a chain. I have to do a lot of repaires on his house because he also likes to eat it. The holes he digs is horrible! One is so deep we thought he was going to china :lol: . What type of collars do you use. I have been experimenting so I bought a Hunter Nylon buckel collar at the pet store. It's getting streched but it seems to be o.k. I won't let him wear leather because riley had a leather collar and he snapped it clean in two and almost got hit by a truck! Bear loves trowing his food dish in the air and burying it. He sometimes gives Dixie a dish or toy for a present. I might start bringing him to the brook for a swim. :wink:
  11. pumpkin, I'm from New-Brunswick Canada.[Nothern N.B] Please tell me more about your team! I also posted a topic called fellow mushers. It will tell you all about my dogs. It's located in the sports categorie. Hope we keep in touch.
  12. Hey i'm a musher! PLease check out my topic on sports and activities called 'fellow mushers' hope to get your reply!
  13. I am a canadian musher. I here there is another musher on here called pumpkin. If you are reading this I would like to here about your team. There aren't many musher around here so I am excited to know i'm not alone in my ocupation on this forum. I have a small team since I just started full swing in january. My 2 lead dogs are Riley and Bear. I'm training Bear with Riley in lead since I just received him on jan 1. He is 1 yr and a red\tan and black siberian husky.]very handsom!] My 2 nd leader I ever trained is Riley a lab\rottie\pointer mix. He may not be a sled dog but he loves to pull. The first leader I trained was Samantha a border collie australian shepherd x. My neighbor owns a husky german shepherd x named Dixie. We think she is possibly Bears mate. I have a small sled. It is handcrafted it's between a freight and sprint sled. It weighs about 40 Lbs. I also have a sheltie that I may try on the sled next winter because he is strong and fast. We are also in process of moving to buy more huskies? What do you think of samoyeds as sled pullers? I have no experiance with them. thanks! Hope you will tell me more about your team!
