Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Wow! I thought $23 a day as a package rate was expensive. $45 is crazy.

Ain't it the truth! We regularly have my son's husky mix over here, sometimes days at a time. The romp, chase, wrestle for hours on end. Then collapse in an exhausted stupor. Sometimes the call is "Mom, we're going away for the day - can Archer come over?" and sometimes its "Mom, Archer is driving us crazy and getting into everything - he needs some doggie playtime..."

Doggie play time solves a LOT of problems!

Yeah I am kind of spoiled I work at a dog kennel that offers doggy daycare and get to bring my dog with me every day for free.

I also want to second training your puppy to be calm. Teaching them to relax and that its a good thing is fantastic. A good time to do this would be durring a movie or a tv show. I spent a lot of time on this when Simon was young and now he is a couch potato in the house saving all his energy up for our next adventure.
The other way we did this was we really encouraged chewing on apropreate objects. Kongs, antlers, nylabones and even a rope toy keep on eye on the last one. But after a while he learned if he was bored and we were all relaxing he could grab one of those and entertain himself. When he first did it on his own I almost peed myself I was so excited.

Echoes the woman with the crushed gutter spout that the chipmunk escaped to from the marauding furry redhead and the wiley little raven haired beastie.

This is the first dog I've had that would play fetch. Finally a dog that can be worn out enough without wearing myself out. With my akita who won't even put toys in her mouth I had to keep interesting frozen food items on hand unless I wanted to jog 5hrs a day. Working at a frozen beef bone would keep her busy. Otherwise to let her tire herself out you need fort knox to contain her. She can clear a 6' fence but has the bulk to also tear things loose. If you watched her turn a wire crate into scrap metal you wouldn't be surprised how often she used to escape. As she gets older and we moved in to town where things are not as interesting to explore she has been mostly staying put. She only stays somewhere because she wants to.
