planet molosser hosts tons of images and doesnt require a cent, molosserdogs.c om... they have donation area with a set amount and who donated an how much... they host far more images than this site, have more people on it etc...

people have asked michael a few times the costs and he has yet to answer... it is very vague...¬ 

Do you honestly think he sells merchandise to not profit from it... the almight dollar rules all

How much does it cost to run the site.. that is the question and why cant he answer it... it has been asked by other posters as well.

Seems like you profit from this website... you make clothing, calendars and now need help running a website....

If and that is a big IF, you needed help running the site, you should give a dollar amount that needs to be raised but when is the cut off, how long do you take money for and you never state how much is needed?. 

Sounds like you (both of you) are taking advantage of good people and their money... I am on a ton of messageboards and i have never seen so much help needed to run a message board... I guess, I like my dogs are far more suspecious than most but, this says shady all over it

You kind of have me confused... if the trainer is used to working with high dominant breeds then why are you here asking for ecollar advice... It seems to me that you have a typical neo on your hands... and yes you need to establish control but if you 4mth pup is going up the leash on then something is missing.....

If that truly was the case, than the breeder was just an idiot....  Prey model is the best meat to bone ratio... or go by stools... if it is too hard than there is too much bone or if it is too soft/liquidy than too much meat

My female was weaned onto raw from 3-4wks and never never had a problem and my male was switched from kibble at 11wks

MY CO breeder has always weaned her pups onto raw and never once had an issue...

I feel that it was lack of education on the breeders part.  BUT, pups can also get rickets on kibble. Being deficient in vitamin D or the B complexes usually only occurs to animals which grow very fast and have been malnourished

Amen to that... my pup was weaned onto raw and a picture of perfect health... and my male was switched at 11wks and he too is a picture of perfect health.

If that was true, then all those wolves and wild animals would have some major problems as a result of their diet.  A dog and wolf have identical digestive tracts

Start off with one protein source... turkey necks worked well for me and a good meat to bone ratio.¬  Stick to that until she handles it well.¬ 

If the poops are runny add more bone.¬  If the poops are too hard, add more meat.

Pork necks also add a good meat to bone ratio but pups young teeth might not be able to handle it.

Take a whole chicken cut it down the middle and remove the breast meat... that too is good meat to bone ratio

In regards to vitamins and minerals... it will all balance out over time.¬  Add the organ meat once the pup handles the other stuff well.¬  Liver is very rich so start that in small incriments because it may lead to cannon butt.

I dont use any vegetables and have been feeding raw for almost 2 years to my 2 dogs... if you have any more questions, email me at babs.t@verizon.net¬  I can give you a ton of websites etc...if you need them

From what I can tell... you have a neo or am i wrong?... which is a different world than a GSD.  In regards to correction well you have a neo and they will take advantage if you arent a good leader.

A remote collar wont solve those problems in regards to making you a better leader.

What are you doing to estblish youself?

I use remote collars... i spend 600 for 2 collars and one remote.  I love it.  It isnt cruel or harsh... if used properly it is the same as an invisible lead.  Dont get me wrong, it can be misused and you can ruin a dog but responsible handling it is a great and effective tool

I have great recall now with my dogs, i am able to use it for barking... I dont use it for a bark collar but if they are barking and I tell them to sush and there is nothing around for them to be barking at, i will give a correction....

The estrela make a nice LGD and a little on the rarer side ... Robyn Poyner of Poyner Goats has several breeds of LGDs working for her and she trains some rescues... she maybe a great contact for different breed perspectives and help you with what your looking for.  I know right now she has Pyr Akbash, Gampr, Estrela and some others

I have a central Asian Ovcharka and caucasian ovcharka the CO is female and CAO is male.  As of now they are property guards but I will be adding a small amount of livestock in the near future.

I chose my breeds for their strong distrust of strangers...  If you are looking for flock guards you are should look more into Pyrs, anatolians not the ovcharkas

Hi,  I own a female CO and male CAO.  The main difference between the sexes with temp from what I am told is the male is less apt to show his feelings and female more emotional.   Nevermind the size...MY breeders male CO are just BIG.

I am not quite sure what you mean by strangers and ok... Zero my male CAO is aloof.. he wont look for trouble but he wont let you pet him, nor get to close to me.  My family and inlaws he is wonderful with but I still need to let you in the house, if you just open the door and walk in, that is not tolerated by Chara or Zero

If the dog is of correct temp, spay or neuter will not lessen their protective nature

Most filas are fear based (some people wont like to hear that) they work better in a pack vs 1 on 1.  Correct Fila stock is far and few inbetween and that is world wide.  That was told to me by very reputable trainers and would never recomment them.

You need fencing 6' and always a proper introduction with people.  My zero for instance...eve ryone that was in his life fairly often up until his 1st birthday he is ok with...the window is now closed with him... he doesnt like anyone else nor will he tolerate them in his house.

Chara is still maturing but she is reminding me more and more that she is a Caucasian LOL.  She is extremely alert to every sound sight or smell and she will hit the door with full force if she doesnt know who is behind it.

both dogs are wonderful with my family but you need to work with them everyday.  I personally will always have a CAO and CO in my house but the fur, barking, protection, digging, training, socialization is too much for most
