We LOVE it! I'm not always fond of how poodles are drawn but this is perfect. Ice's smug face is amazing and so true to life. Thank you!

Want! I'd love one of one or both poodles. Icy would be such a fun doodle with the moustache he's rocking at the moment!

Behavior & Training > Multi-dog homes and aggression between dogs?

The dogs I have now mostly tolerate each other, not much playing to speak of. When Boomer was still alive, she hated Lola but she knew better than to act on it. The few times they got into it, Lola started it but Boomer was damn sure she'd finish it laugh out loud.
Part of my job involves regularly staying with a rotating cast of Havanese plus one cressted and the occasional frenchie. My boss is a breeder and some of the dogs are off at handlers but there are always at least Eight at the house. Their age range is anywhere from 10 weeks to 7 years with the occasional litter of puppies. Mostly bitches, with one male crested that is a permanent resident and usually an adolescent male hav hanging around. Those dogs have the least amount of training on them that they can and still live insidelaugh out loud. Somehow, they ALL get along, no squabbles with toys and bones all over the place. I haven't figured out how it works yet and I've been staying extended periods with them for well over a year.

Sports & Agility > Does Anyone Compete With a Rescued Dog?

Poodle, not- doodle!

Lola is a rescue and competes in agility, at the excellent level. Lots of dogs in AKC and USDAA are rescue dogs and do quite well. I would love to see a rescue that pulled only high drive sport prospects, because it is so common for those types to do really badly in shelters.

And you are most welcome for the song lyrics. I wouldn't have named him Ice if I'd know I'd be singing that and Ice Ice Baby for the rest of his life.

It isn't just when the bumper is in my hands Rexy, in dockdiving the bumper is in the pool.

Thanks for your response Trigger, Ice was with his breeder and at least one littermate until he was a year old, so I doubt that's it. His mother and grandmother both pull the bitey hand crap though. My training style is largely positive with a healthy dose of whatever works. I think your last option sounds like the most realistic, as he is desperate to please.

Ice is an amazingly biddable dog, would do anything for a bumper throw or a good rough pat. His only behavioral issue is his inability to close his mouth when he's excited. He's bitten my thigh pretty badly, going for a tennis ball, and gets my hands all the time when we're playing with the bumper. I'm not willing to stop playing tug or anything like that, since that's a fairly big part of his training. Another mouthy issue is that sometimes he's just really excited and swings his head around with his mouth open. At our last dockdiving event, he got so wound up on the dock that he was spinning and screaming with his mouth wide and I had to pull him from finals because I really didn't want him to slice me open on the dock. This REALLY isn't an aggressive bite thing, much more that he is just so incredibly excited. Right now, I remove him from the source of excitement and make him calm down before he is allowed to do anything else.
I'm working with a trainer, obviously, but I was looking for some outside input. I love his drive and excitement, and I'd rather not cut down on that.

I've found some really decent crates at Big Lots. Quick to pop up, light and around 45 bucks.

Behavior & Training > An Article on Walking Your Dog
Ice

First of all, the word reactive drives me bonkers. Do we not want our dogs to react to stimuli? Everybody and their brother has a "reactive" dog. I was walking the poodles the other day and a small dog ran out barking at us. His owner followed and she said "Oh, he's reactive. I'll get him". No... your dog was being a jerk and picking him up and taking him back into the house isn't doing a damn thing for him
As for the article, It's one of the better ones. Just get out there and do stuff with your dog. Common Sense,I'd say, nothing revolutionary. I can't count how many people have said "Well we try to walk him but... he's scared" or "he pulls" or "he won't walk." If you can't walk your dog in your neighbourhood but you have time to take them to do other things? That's great. But if you live with the dogs I do, you'd have to go do something everyday. Driving the dogs to the lake or to the park every day just isn't possible. So they suck it up and we go for walks. Boomer too, she was my dog that had issues with other dogs on walks. Eventually, she got over it. Dogs are great like that, if we don't coddle them.
