  1. Can you put in a dog door? Option B is sleep her somewhere where she can tell you she needs to go outside. Right now she doesn't have much option if she needs to go. Have you changed what you feed her recently? She's not feeling guilty by the way, she's feeling anxious and potentially anticipating being punished. Generally a dog will not willingly defecate in their sleeping area.
  2. She looks great. Why on earth do people buy coated breeds and then want to clip them short???
  3. In many cases, but not all. Not every dog from every rescue has been assessed or fostered for any length of time, if at all, and not necessarily in family situation with young kids. I'd want to know that for sure before consdering any rescue dog.
  4. Agree. I'd rate the following as smooth coated family dog prospects that deserve to be known better: Pointers Whippets Rottweilers
  5. You are right that socialising a pup with children is important if it's to be a family dog. However some mature dogs have already had that experience. What ages are you kids?
  6. I wouldn't leave any pup/dog in a bathroom all day if I worked..
  7. Anything beyond "puppyhood". I'd be inclined to say 2-3 years and up.
  8. Do Whippets creep you out?? If not, I think you might enjoy owning one.. or two.. or Well, you get the drift.
  9. How much do you enjoy grooming and how much coat do you want to maintain? Spaniels and Setters aren't the easiest of dogs to keep in show coat and groom for the ring.
  10. But how do you know that is her hypothesis? It is just a topic name she started on DOL. I don't think we're imagining it. Corvus:
  11. I should have just waited for the more articulate artillery to arrive I find this a rather charming comment. I'm trying to work out who has just been offended. I find it a refreshing admission. The question is of course is THIS science flawed? Some of us think so and why is that so heretical??
  12. Aw thanks Aiden2 I guess no-one likes being called a weirdo outsider just because of what they do for a portion of their day It's a bit like being called emotional and biased because your observations are based on experience, not data. ;)
  13. I' jumping back from the love or hate scientists bit here and wondering at the above. This whole thread was started on the basis of survey information on some dogs (mostly greyhounds) being compared to a shyness/boldness axis defined especially for humans, then that information being used to project a result across a varied group of dog breeds. Does this seem completely ridiculous to anyone else here?? Seems like anthropomorphism taken to the extreme. And, you just try and keep my dogs away from a "novel" object!! I suppose my questions are more basic. Does it matter and if it does, why does it matter?
  14. Yeah but those are physicists. Totally different ;) One is an engineer. :cool:
