If money was no object - life with your GSDs

If money and time were no object......

What activities do you dream of doing with your GSD? If you didn't have the limitations, what would you do and why ? Just spend more play time with your dog? Would you have done search and rescue, showing, tracking, schutzhund, agility, fly ball, aqua jump? What would you do if you could do anything with your dog?

Re: If money was no object - life with your GSDs

I would fly Mojo to a place where I could learn to be a groomer and train and certify Mojo to be a therapy dog. He has such a wonderful temperament and he's wonderful around kids. Its sad that we dont have such facilities in our country yet and I learn from books and this wonderful board.

When a dog wags his tail, he wags from the heart

Re: If money was no object - life with your GSDs

I got a small taste of therapy work bringing Sean to a nursing home. But what I would really, really like to do would be to bring him to a rehabilitation facility or a children's hospital. I think that would be so rewarding and I think Sean would love it too. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/paw.gif[/img]

Re: If money was no object - life with your GSDs

If money was no object, nor time, I would set up a state of the art breeding and service dog training facilty. And provide these dogs to the people who need them for free. The prices of these service dogs is so out of reach for some people who really need them!!! It would also have a retirement section for retired dogs until they could find a good home. Good service dogs are so few and far between, there are super long waiting lists and the price is so huge. I feel for the people who need them and can't get the funding to have them. I would hire the best service dog trainers. Ahh my dream!!!

You have got great heart. What a wonderful idea!

My initial thought was a little more selfish:
I'd LOVE to put my pup in the car w/ me & drive cross country - stopping anywhere I wanted to check out the sites, ride horses, hike, take photos, etc. I'd take my time & spread it out over a whole summer.

Ahhhhh

Re: If money was no object - life with your GSDs

[img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] excellent plan, Chris. when i win the lottery, i'll set you up!

me, i'd like to have this huge ranch, and provide a place to live for any pet-type or barn-yard animal that needs a home, temp or otherwise. and on this ranch, we'd get us some ducks & sheeps so dylan has something to herd.

back to the question at hand...
if i could turn back the clock a few years and money / time were no object, detection work would be it. he's awsome! and loves to play "look" almost as much as ball.

But the jar he was making did not turn out as he had hoped, so he crushed it into a lump of clay again and started over. ~ Jer. 18:4

Re: If money was no object - life with your GSDs

<font color="brown"> I would buy about 100 acres with a pond, fence it in, build a huge building (about 50'x100' with 2 floors) attached to the house with a double dutch door as an entry/exit so the top can be open while the dogs were not in the house and I could be listening to what's going on!!, central heat and air, tile floors with drains, a few cages that were at least 15x15 for the new rescues that came in that need time to adapt to the other pups and for those that were heartworm + that need to be kept somewhat quiet, kuranda dog beds everywhere, small vet clinic, grooming/bathing stations, and a WELL-PAID staff who love animals and would enjoy helping me with the rescues and getting them ready for their new furever homes, if I could let them go. Remember money is no object, I could afford to keep them all!!!
