Here's this pup at a german shepherd rescue in my area!

http://www.sheprescue.org/Gizmo von Goslar.html

He has such an interesting coat color! His face says not German Shepherd. But I could be wrong! The first thing I thought was canaan dog. What breed does he look most like/what breeds mixed? I'm extremely curious...

So... Dogster's community section will not be closing! big grin cheer

... wait what? It's kind of unfortunate for those who have already spent much effort and time into relocating/recreating other forums and Dogster-like sites.

But still...! I'm relieved, but confused how exactly this happened. The article didn't explain much!

I'm just directly copy and pasting every informative post into a word document on google drive. And I label each section under the breed. I only put down the breeds that I'm interested in (and all the ones with Tiller's posts even if I'm not interested in the breed at the moment LOL), and it took me 2~3 hours to do... phew!

Also, feel free to ask me for the file if anyone wants it! Even though it's not a complete compilation of every thread...

Choosing the Right Dog > Is there a Tiller thread on German Shepherds?

I remember reading a thread with these huge informative posts from Tiller on German Shepherds before, but I can't find them anymore... Did anyone happen to have this saved somewhere or?

I'm currently in the process of compiling all the useful posts on various breeds that many of you have written in the past. big grin (So that I will have them all... FOREVER... bahaha... whenever I happen to need info on a certain breed, I will have some at hand)

ETA: Are there any Tiller posts on Corgis too?

ETA again: I haven't forgotten about the discussion about Goldens and Newfies and bomb-proof breeds either. Thanks very much to Tiller and Watson and others who have contributed, I have those posts all saved too for my own future reference. smile

I just wanted to say that I think it's amazing that so many people here are striving to reorganize in another community together to continue dog education, making friends, and all the rest! cloud 9

I just made an account there too, now "pending staff approval". My username is crimsondog. Most likely I'll just continue creeping on the threads to continue learning and improving myself. I'm sure the issues will be worked out soon with such dedicated and loving people.

This is such sad news...

I'm /mostly/ a thread creeper here, but if the threads are gone, I can't keep learning either. frown I've been reading threads here since 6 years ago. I remember it was extremely active back then.

I'm always striving to learn about various breeds and training methods as much as possible, there are so many experienced and knowledgeable people here, and I've always enjoyed and learned so much from Tiller's breed posts.

*secretly saves all of Tiller's breed posts into a text file*

I just joined Dogster Buddies on facebook though. I hope many of you can join too!

Choosing the Right Dog > Golden Retriever breeders?

Lancer

Lickin your feet- all the time
 
 
Barked: Fri Jul 26, '13 5:04pm PST 
Hey again- I've sent a pawmail to Watson about this today, but decided to post here too.

Half a year ago, I posted a thread asking for a breed with the temperament of a Newfoundland, but in a smaller and possibly less slobbery package... calmness/love for babies, little kids, other dogs of various sizes, and possibly even other animals... so no prey drive whatsoever, no territorial drive, as easygoing as possible, etc. It was concluded that this is a well-bred golden! This golden would simply be a family pet.

But all the goldens I've met in my life were all quite rambunctious in public and even more so when meeting other dogs. Not sure if I'm just unlucky, or if this is a result of random breeding or poor socialization, but they didn't come anywhere close to the Newfoundland temperament that I'm looking for. Not sure how this is?

I'm not dead-set on a breeder golden just yet, though it's high on the list... I'm looking to keep my options open.

Can someone spread their knowledge about reputable golden retriever breeders, and maybe some more in-depth info on Goldens in general (ex, why I've only seen hyper and rough-and-tumble goldens)? It makes me wonder if a Newfoundland, when moderately under-socialized, would also be rambunctious and fickle in public.

I checked the dogster's dog breed directory page, but didn't find anything on these guys. I'm just here asking for a friend who's family will most likely be getting one...

Personal experience? Second-hand experience? Temperament, health concerns?

Behavior & Training > Lancer's reactivity problem risen- nearly runs to his death

That makes sense... I'd like to think that it's calming him more than repressing the behavior, but it very well could be just that.

With a behaviorist, would they simply dig out the root issue and give us an explanation, but still use the same conditioning/redirecting methods? Is there actually a way to fix the ROOT, or is it likely a permanent issue that we can only deal with on the surface, as we are now?

Is it likely that through this perhaps forced calm/repressed behavior that Lancer goes through when we go out in public, he will eventually just become desensitized to the stimulus as well?

Forgot to mention, if my mom is the one holding his leash, even if I'm walking with my mom, he has a much lower stress tolerance. As long as I'm the one holding his leash, then he becomes much more stable.
