  1. Well, I suggest then that you make it yourself, that way when it fails it will be on you. Nothing is perfect, especially when made by humans..
  2. Just a side note as well..it may be beneficial if Monte was taught to walk properly on lead then the size and strength wouldn't matter..
  3. Leather. The weakest part of a lead is the clip. The one you linked to above has aluminum. Good ole fashioned leather. Try Gun Dog Supply or better yet, Farm Diggity, the leads they make are indestructible and it's an American company owned by sheepdog trialers and breeders.
  4. Love the picture - Happy Holidays to all
  5. What a wonderful year you two have had! Thank you for sharing and thank you for rescuing him. May the next year bring you and Rooter even more..
  6. I guess I'm surprised you're defending other dogs and not your own. There's a reason she doesn't like them but you're not backing her up. What she needs is the reinforcement that you've got her back and for you to make sure others don't crowd her space. D'Elle nailed it.
  7. Check with Geri Byrne or Candy Kennedy (Candy's website - https://www.abcollie.com/index.php/tag/candy-kennedy-border-collies/ ) and look at https://www.norcalsheepdog.org/ if there is nothing available maybe a member can point you in the right direction of someone they know.
  8. Thank you @Ranchhand..thats exactly what I was looking for, only with recent update based on the elections. Something tells me those are not current..
  9. Google. It'll be more than you ever wanted to know though.
  10. Anything you do with your dog, for the sake of doing things, I would think would be beneficial! That said, this "game" is absolutely useless for working dogs.
  11. Whomever tipped off ABCA about this, thank you.
  12. What's to stop this person from simply registering under a different name? If registration of all dogs wasn't revoked, the wheels keep turning..
  13. Reading the ABCA news a bit ago I see someone named Tony McAlister has had privileges revoked - effective today. Moral Turpitude. This is a pretty broad phrase..is it criminal behavior or just yucky ick behavior? Does this affect registrations of prior dogs or compromise the studbooks?
  14. Ugh..coming from me I can't believe I am about to say this...have you desexed him yet? A 22 mo pup is still a pup, one you need to get a handle on. I don't like drugging a dog or desexing, however, it's not a perfect world. You may want to think about desexing him, if it's even allowed where you live. Based on how he was when you got him and where he is now, you've done well, you have a long way to go and quite a bit to learn about the breed in itself. Work the *mind*, if he needs anti anxiety in order to focus, use them. Everything, everything in his life from you needs to be slow and calm. I'm sure you're worried about what he will react to, your tension may be feeding his reactions. No reaction from you may go further than simply giving him a bone as a distraction for example..
