There is also a dog collar that works like underground fencing and just lets the dog go a certain distance.  Some friends of ours use one with their Great Dane and he does beautifully.

Thanks TIna, I am sad about her moving, but she married a guy in the Navy and this is only the beginning of her moves.  I am with you about dog parks.  Cosmo never fairs well anyway.  Seems the little dogs want to challenge my big boy and he always get in trouble because he is SOOO big!

My sister's dogs are awesome Amy so the one close sounds great.  They have a tiny backyard and need a place for Stanley and Sunny to stretch their legs.

Thanks for the help.  I will pass along the info to her and then most likely pm you for more info.

Thanks again!

Does anyone know of any great dog parks on the south side of Seattle, the Auburn/Kent area.  My sister has frisbee crazed dog and they have a little backyard.  They are looking for somewhere for them to have some fun.

HI and welcome!  Glad you are here.  I am Krista mom to Cosmo, a mantle Great Dane and two smaller, but lovely doggers.
Hope you enjoy BPO!!

Hi Krista, I am Krista, too.  I am afraid I am rather inconsistent on BPO and must have missed your arrival.  Your puppers is adorable!!  Congrats on bringing him home! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

YAY Gracie!!  Two hours and 15 minutes!!!  Holy cow.  I feel bad when I take 1 1/2 hours.  It sounds like good stuff though!  Forget the treats if you can.  My dogs get freaky silly when treats are involved so I rarely use them.  For your class get a nail gun pouch or a folded in apron and put treats in the pockets.  You are hands free and the treats only become available and in sight when you choose.  Saying that, I am warning you, Cosmo tries to stick his giant head in my treat pouch when I get home from work!!  I tell my clients to stick it on at home now and then so it isn't such a big deal.

I am glad you had fun and learned!!

I loved your recount on injuries.  My oh my, you have suffered and Stella.....  a shoulder seperation!!  I couldn't possibly know my injuries since I seem to create my own havoc and then add twelve paws in to that.  All that says is keep 911 on voice dial!

I am sorry for your family's loss, especially Spencer.  We are in the midst of losing my first rescue dog, Sadie.  It is so painful and my heart goes out to you as a mom for having to tell your kids.  I am sure you will find a very loving way.

What a beautiful thing Mojo is doing.  I think Mojo must see it as his duty.  We have had similar experiences with Sam and I love the dedication and purpose he shows. 

Hugs to you and your family and good boy Mojo.

Saint Bernard General Discussions / Re: First bath at home today

I am impressed with your tenacity for the bath.  I take Cosmo to Petco and use their "Do it yourself" service.  It is $12 and then we go buy treats like Bully sticks and it seems like it is all forgotten.  I don't leave him there to dry though.  They have a shop vac to get out most of the water and I take him home to finish the drying

I can't imagine the mess he would create at my house and the broken bones I could suffer if I attempted it at home.  I keep telling Gunnar, my husband, I am building a walk-in dog shower in our laundry room.  One day I am going to do it, too! 

Must be nice today to have such a nice smelling boy!!

Cosmo doesn't think it is very cool to have a trainer for a mom.  Plus, I am a plumber with leaky pipes.  Haven't you seen pics of Cosmo on my furniture???  I don't allow such nonsense.  ;) ;)
