A martingale collar is especially good for breeds like Dobermans, who have long, tapering necks.

Re: Okay, call me stupid perhaps.......

I always tell new pet owners to ask questions--we dog/cat/whatever critter geeks love to talk about them! We...

Re: Why CM is Yesterday's Dog Trainer

Dish Network is showing the NatGeo channel all month as some promo thing, so I had a chance to watch the Dog Whisperer. Even allowing for the fact that I was biased, I honestly cannot understand what is so great about this guy. :?: :?: He didn't really explain why he was doing what he was doing, and...

This past week I....

....gave my two dogs a bath. Outside. It was certainly hot enough! I also learned that you do not blast the gunk off your deck while you're waiting for the shampoo to do its thing--unless you want to rewash the dog. :oops: Anyway, Flanders is fluffy for now, and both dogs are clean! Once the dogs we...

Re: Dobermans?

Dobermans are indeed highly energetic dogs. As far as their health, here are the concerns: • Major concerns: CVI (wobbler's syndrome) • I lost my second Dobe to that #$*^T%&$#*@@@!!! wobblers! :cry: It was upsetting to see him go from poetry in motion when he ran to looking like a drunken bum when ...

Re: Belgian Shepard/ Sheepdog

Gordiesmom-- Belgians aren't common as pets over here, but this county has been using the Malinois as police dogs for quite some time. I've seen a few being walked in my neighborhood, so my Flanders isn't the only Malinoose :wink: in town. I have a sticker on my car window that says My Belgian Malin...

Re: Scotch Fur Fighter Floor Tool?- Reviews?

I thought it was lousy--I got way better results with the special attachment on my vacuum.
Other people's mileage may vary though.
