    They jump right up and sit next to their handler who can hold onto the dog's harness. It's one of the first things they do with puppies - get them used to riding a chair with their handler. So cute!...

    Avalanche dogs

    I went skiing at my local mountain today and took a break to watch an avalanche dog demonstration. These working dogs are an impressive tool that ski patrol uses to keep the mountain safe.

    Yep! I've realized my two have very different emergency recalls. Thor's is "who wants a cookie?" and Barley's is just "Ball!"

    Safety in the bed?

    I would never ever consider putting my dogs in the bed of my truck unless they were fully secured in crates. I live in rural Oregon and the number of disasters Iíve seen from dogs in the beds of...

    Lol. My boys get a raw egg with their dinner every couple of days. Shell and all. I figure they sneak out to the chicken run and eat chicken poop so an egg has to be much better!

    Maybe it's the name. :) My Thor was a crazy land shark as well. Barley had no biting issues at all. I don't remember what ended up working with Thor - I think we tried a lot of the methods talked...

    She sounds so great! Thor is a cuddler but he always offers the butt end. Barley cuddles like Stormy - he wants to curl up under my arm and tuck his head as close to mine as possible.

    Of course...

    Thor and Barley update

    I think it depends on the dog personality. Thor is a super clingy off leash dog - he never gets more than 100 ft or so more away from me before he is constantly checking in with me to make sure Iím...

    It was probably a full wrestling move! They tend to barrel over each other during chase/bitey face sessions without even noticing.
