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.

He is gorgeous! I love shepherds and will have one someday when we leave the city area. Nara looks like she is going to track him down and get him. Smile I love Beowulf. The body language in these shots in really interesting, thanks for posting. They are all beautiful dogs.

Beautiful pics and beautiful dogs! They do all look so happy together. I also love the facial expressions. I love how dogs will paw at each other like in the seventh pic down, like, "What are you? Play with me!"

Thanks everyone! It has been confirmed as of today that Ozi will be mine on 28 March. Fifteen days and counting...I'm restless.

Yay, congrats! It'll come soon enough. I'm sure Paw Paw, Nara and Beowulf can't wait, either. Smile

I bet you are. Will Ozi be a search dog?

You guessed it! That's the plan. Ozi, who just turned 2, is the perfect age to begin SAR training. I'm starting to think my Nara is *sshhhh* over the hill going on 7 years old *don't tell her I said that though*...haha.

Well, your avatar kind of gave it away. Wink I've always wanted to do SAR, but fell in love with the wrong breed ha ha. Someday I will have a shepherd though. Shepherds are my second dog love.

I've seen old pictures of Sibes used as avalanche dogs back in WWI. Not sure how they did it, but it seems like their short attention spans and desire to run, plus lack of recall if/when distracted, would not make it very probable. I work my Sibes in other ways: bikejoring. All of my dogs are trained to do a job daily, and they thrive on doing so.
 
SAR is amazing though. I doubt I will ever stop doing K9 SAR until I'm too old to handle the rough terrain and large dogs.

So good news! I was able to get my Kaze early. He's been here with me for 3 days now, instead of waiting until March 28th. Anyways, I've been feeding him 3-4 times a day to help put some weight on. I measured him yesterday, and great news: I am not an owner of an oversized dog (yet)! Kaze measured 26" and 86 lbs. He probably needs to put on 5-10 lbs to get those ribs to stop showing. But he's right in the middle of the breed standard for height (24-28") and once he fills out with meat and muscle, he will be slightly over the breed standard for weight. He's laying here next to me while I type this. I'm about to take all 4 dogs out for another daily bikejoring adventure to help build that muscle mass, and then I'll take him with me on a run this afternoon. He's named KamiKAZE for a reason! He's a whirlwind of energy who bounces off the walls all day long, no matter how much exercise I provide him. Crazy boy! I love him so much already. I'll post new pics once I take some.

Yay, glad you were able to bring him home sooner than expected! Sounds like he's doing awesome so far. Can't wait for more pics!

I am super happy to hear how well he is doing. Fantastic pictures. So why do you start SAR at 2 years? I just know for sledding or agility you start younger so I was wondering why the age difference.

You want to start SAR no later than around their 2nd birthday, so I'm in luck! It could take 2-3 years to get them certified, and you don't want to start them too old because then it would almost be time to retire. So yes, the younger the better, and with the time it takes to train and certify, if you start younger than 2, they'll more than likely be a fully grown adult and mature enough to handle the responsibility of "playing the game." If Kaze had been 3 or 4, then I might hesitate to start SAR with him. That's what I meant. I got him at the ripe ol' age of 2, so it's perfect! Haha.
