You should ask your breeder for naming guidance. *Usually* the breeder's kennel name is part of each puppy's name, but it really depends on how your breeder does it.

"Mellow" is not a word that comes to mind when thinking about Halo, but she does have an excellent off switch. She's good good drives, but since she's our first working line shepherd I can't say if...

From 1986 to 2005 we only had one dog at a time. Since then we've always had two, except for a couple months after Dena died before we got Halo, and they've always gotten along extremely well. I have...

SO true. Many people train a sit from a stand then are baffled why the dog just lays there and looks at them when they cue a sit from a down. To us it's the same thing, but to a dog it's not, not at...

I went to Joanne's. They have a huge selection of colors! Oh, I should mention that I cut the strips about 5" wide for Halo's tug.

Of course it doesn't. Just like human growth charts don't apply to all children equally. Consider that there's a 22 pound (10 kg) variation in the standard for adult dogs, not even including dogs...

For Keefer it's me. For Halo, it's an Orbee ball. She'll lay on the floor and *squish squish squish* one for hours with her eyes half closed. We call it her binky.

That's not what SportDogFood told me when I tried to place an order, they said they don't ship to California. That may have changed in the past few months, this was in December.

Me too. I got a Furminator years ago and didn't like it at all. I gave it to someone else who ended up not liking it and she gave it away too! Couldn't live without my undercoat rakes, though.
