  6. Leash Tie Out?

    Dog Gear and Supplies
    Does anyone use a leash tie-out type thing in the yard when playing with their dog? I don't have a fenced in yard and am probably getting a dog sooner than I am getting the yard fenced. The dog I am probably going to foster from the shelter likes to play fetch so I was hoping to come up with a...

  16. Friend's dog, inhumane collar?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Around winter, I took care of my friend's dog for a week or so, and I noticed that the choke chain was completely useless against her. I would have to do a sustained pull with very hard force for her to even stop sniffing at something. Another friend who came on a walk with me commented that...

    It's getting to a point where i don't know what to do with Ellie when we walk in public.
