RE: 190 lb mastiff rescued from trail

Seams like this dog was not conditioned enough for the hike. Mastiffs can be fit; search drafting or cart pulling with mastiffs.

RE: Busy few weeks coming.....

We have our hands full with Hattie. Very quick learner; learned sit in less than a day. Learned down the next day and is quickly learning more. She also learned that when one door was closed preventing her into the dining room to go to the other. She wanted into the mud room; jumping at the Dutch door. We turned her out the front door in case she needed to go out and she ran to the back door to get into the mud room.

RE: Busy few weeks coming.....

Our preliminary round was late Thursday afternoon. It was windy and dogs were having difficulty hearing the whistles. Lee could not hear and needed my help with difficult sheep. He got frustrated and inappropriately gripped one leading to a DQ. Other dogs were not able to move the sheep from where they were set at the start; Lee brought me the sheep mostly on his own (since he couldn’t hear me). There were many retires and dqs during the time were ran.

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

Border Collies are a high energy dog that requires lots of activities and exercise.This might explain my need for more caffeine.

RE: Busy few weeks coming.....

Lee ran when the wind made it difficult for him to hear my whistles and voice; the sheep were tough and he needed my help. He got frustrated and “gripped off”. Hattie the new pup is wonderful.

Unless you’re prepared for it, a smart (intelligent) dog may not be the best choice; they easily learn things (some you want them to learn and others you may regret they learned).

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

A dogs disposition will be dependent upon both genetics (breed, and family lines within a breed) AND environment (how the individual dog is raised). If environment totally determines how a dog turns out there would be no point in rehabbing ex fighting dogs and dogs from other bad living conditions. Conversely, some behaviors cannot be totally controlled by training because it is genetically controlled (instincts).

The most sedentary dog we’ve had was an ex-racing greyhound (adopted at age 3 and lived with us till his death at 13). A 15-20 min leisurely stroll on lead and he was ready for hrs laying around the house (or trailer).

RE: Busy few weeks coming.....

Lee was 4th on Saturday and 1st on Sunday out of 66 dogs each day. We won the long road award (highest combined score for a dog trained by its handler). His prize money will go towards buying new tires for the van, the ones put on last week made the handling of our rig worse than the worn Michelins

RE: Busy few weeks coming.....

A section of the old copper water lines in our house (I’ve replaced some of the old lines) has developed a pin hole leak; so add to my plans replacing some sections of water lines Labor Day weekend. The trick is to replace the leaking section without creating a new leak in another section (like the hot and cold supply lines that run floor to ceiling inside the living room next to the wall).

Busy few weeks coming.....

Next week I’m bringing home an old “friend” from my Father: 1966 Mustang GT fastback. He bought it the fall of my second year in college; it was for sale by a freshman. I had a 1966 coup at that time. Next weekend we will be taking our RV to a sheepdog trial. Lee and Grant will be running; the other border collies will be watching. We’re home for Labor Day weekend and the following weekend just me, my wife, and Lee will be driving to CO (without the RV). The preliminary round of 150 dogs is Tuesday-Friday. Hopefully we’ll make the top 40 which will run Saturday. I will be helping with a 2 day BAER and dna sample collection clinic in support of the Health and Education Foundation’s (I’m a director) ongoing efforts to identify the causative mutation for early adult onset deafness (onset at 3-7 year old) and building our dna sample database. Renee will also be getting a new puppy from a breeder/competitor coming from MO.

RE: Pets riding in trailer

It’s difficult for one to know the ride dogs have in different locations )crated on the floor of a vehicle, bed of pick-up, floor of a motor home, floor of a trailer, etc) when ones point of reference is sitting on a foam seat.

RE: Pets riding in trailer

And pets are not livestock headed to slaughter or auction.Livestock are transported to places other than action/slaughter; how do you think they get to fairs, farm shows, rodeos, sheepdog trials & demonstrations, other grazing locations (proscribed grazing projects), equestrian events, etc.

RE: Pets riding in trailer

The rear of the trailer is the bounciest area.the “ride” is not equal in all rv trailers; some are bouncy and some are not. We could leave it room the counter in our previous trailer and they would stay put; not do in our current trailer. The same can be said for the “ride” in pick-ups. I suspect the “ride” depends upon the loaded weight relative to the max weight; much the the ride in an empty vs loaded dump truck.

RE: Pets riding in trailer

Dogs are not livestock to be trailered. They are companion animals and should ride in the truck.our dogs are dogs not livestock or fur kids/fur babies. Take a look at how those charged with animal welfare transport the dogs under their care.

RE: Pets riding in trailer

The American humane association seems to think its okay Note the airline crates inside their 5th wheel toy hauler There are lots of examples of mobile adoption trailers. A friend of ours just got their special ordered LQ horse trailer with the stall area setup for dog crates including a generator to run the AC in the stall area. Keys: Secured crate Proper temperature (controlled or do not travel when too hot)
