    Yeah they look all nice and innocent... They play REALLY rough together (like they are killing each other), but it's normal fun for them. Unfortunately sometimes one of their collars doesn't survive the violence, lol. This is probably the 5th collar they've destroyed while playing... #bigdogproblems And you want to talk about dog flatulence??? Moses will clear a room and leave everyone gagging. And GOOD LAWD, you certainly hear it coming!!! BWAAOOAOOAAAP!!!

    Nice! There are a few owners around our area that have wolf or wolf mixes. Every wolf I have ever met were all friendly super-chill. Our dog's seem to get along with them well too.

    Show off your setup & hardware!

    If you make a post over in the New Builds & Planning section, that would be the best place to ask about upgrades. This thread is more for just showing off what ya got.

    Yeah, we often have to explain to people that they aren't wearing muzzles, lol. Sounds like our Olivia. In the same situation, she will warn you and it's scary. But only if you're a stranger. When we introduce her to new people on our property or who come to the house, we put her on the halty and she is totally fine. It's like she knows to behave with that thing on. Once she has had a chance to sniff and say high, we can take the halty off and she's as friendly as can be. It's just for that initial encounter that she can be stand-offish. Moses on the other hand, just wiggles his whole body with joy when anyone approaches, lol. With both of them, you can put your hands or your face in their food bowls while they eat and they couldn't care less. So glad they are not food-aggressive. We worked on that from day one as well though. Sticking our hands in their faces and bowls while they ate as puppies, to get them used to it.

    Yeah, tell me about it. Both of ours are about 75lbs, so not even THAT big, but big enough. lol. They are high-energy but we walk/run them multiple times per day on our farm to "wear them out". Sometimes that isn't enough and Moses is still wanting to play when we're ready for bed. I love this and I love seeing so many pits & pit mixes on here. They are such a gentle breed. The only hint of aggression in one of our dog's, is the female, Olivia and that comes from the american bull dog trait to be protective of her people and property. That being said, we manage it just fine with her through training and socialization. Training and socialization are KEY and it's best to start from day one. Speaking of training and big dogs pulling you, we use gentle leader halties with our dogs. It goes over their head and muzzle (but they are not muzzles, they can still open their mouths fully) so that if they decide to pull, it pulls on their heads instead of their necks and they don't like it. It stops them from pulling immediately. With a leash on their collar, it's too much like a harness and they love that feeling of pulling on a harness. With dogs that are mostly muscle, these have been a huge help with training. They now walk beside us as they should without pulling at all and it gives us a lot more control over them. You can see the halties on them in this picture:

    OMG, her face!

    dog thread

    Yes! A dog thread. Pretty sure there have been animal/pet threads before, but nice to see one just for dogs. These are our children, Moses & Olivia. They're pitbull american bulldog mixes and are about 1.5yrs old (born Aug 1st 2017). They're super-friendly and love to meet other people and dogs. Despite their body language (wagging tail and wiggling with joy), people will actually cross the street to avoid them, just because they "look scary". We had chihuahua's before these guys and they were actually vicious to strangers and would bite at your ankles, lol. These guys though, will just knock you over and lick you to death. Sad how they are perceived, but they also help keep unwanted people off our farm property. From their 1st birthday last year: At the cottage: And just from the other day:
  12. Some great action. Not sure I'll ever get used to the sound, or lack there-of. lol
  13. Illuminati confirmed... I don't necessarily agree with the meme (I didn't create it either), but I just found it funny because I love that part in that movie and I know some people really won't care about Radeon 7.
