Wow, now that's impressive!

In fact, I think that is probably the best thing about dog security, no matter how tuff you think you are or how used to dogs you may be, when you hear a dog go ballistic behind a door you have no way to know what will happen if it gets out.

Plus it is not uncommon for a little dog to sound HUGE when you cannot see it, so it’s all good as far as I can see!
:)

People in the neighborhood tend to see you with them and steer cleer of your property.

That's a cheeky face if ever I saw one..:dude:
You have no idea. Sometimes I think she just plays dumb to get bacon. It works.

He's a big lad.. Not many break in's in your house then Jomo?

He is a healthy 105 lbs now, probably about 85 lbs in that picture. Break-in's... absolutely not! He has been known to chase down the unfortunate few who attempt to venture in front of my property if they are unlucky to meet him outside as they are passing by:laugh2::laugh2::laugh2:

Mrs & Mr Alvinfan with our love and good friend "Boogie". He is a Bichon Frisee ( French Poodle ) and has now grown to 12 pounds. He brings a lot of fun and joy to the household !

Just a couple more! I'm almost too proud of Rommel and he just might be a little spoiled:laugh2:

I agree, you have to be on top of them as a breed as they are so super smart.
My wife finds it hard to control our male and feels more comfortable taking the female for walks. Django actually took her off her feet once and she went down like a ton of bricks..I shouldn't laugh.. She bruised all her chin and didn't think it funny at all.
I will say that our male prefers men in as much as they play rough games with him like football and tug of war with his rope. If a woman takes the other end of the rope you can see that he doesn't put half the amount of power in pulling it as he does with a man and gets fed up easily.
The bitch isn't into tugging ropes, she likes to play with her ball catching it while it bounces.
Funnily the bitch takes more notice of my wife re commands and the dog of me. I can stop him in his tracks if he's off the leash and sees something, whereas I wouldn't trust the situation with my wife and him.. She'd get nervous..And he knows it..

Post some pics of your dogs Kate..:dude:

They've got me completely trained and are spoiled rotten :laugh2:

5owlcl.jpg


Jake (the chocolate lab) been a old fart since he was a pup. He knows he is a person! He can dissect a toy with surgical precision, but otherwise is more interested in food than toys. We call him the puppet master since he loves to be in charge and pulls his little brothers strings to do all his dirty work to keep himself out of trouble.

Riley (golden ret.) is my best buddy. He's just the sweetest happy go lucky guy you could ever meet. Never see him without a toy. He has no idea he isn't a puppy anymore, and I don't think he'll ever figure it out!

They're both real characters. It's amazing the size of their vocabulary and how clever they are when they want to be. They mind me perfect only because I don't think I could handle two big dogs pulling me around if they didn't, but if they can tell a person is too easy going they like to forget their manners!
I can hear them out in the swimming pool right now doing cannonball jumps after their soccer balls :laugh2:

Here is my Loyal companion. Dogs have that way of making it easier to deal with people.:)

I would find people much less tolerable were it not for having a dog:D

Beautiful pics of your GSDs Phil; they are truly the best all-rounder to me, even though the buggers moult like mad! I too cried when my Jess was put down in January, though I held her face and kept talking to her as she slipped away.
The picture attached is one I took with my phone one day; my daughter Frankie was asleep and Jess just cuddled up to her. Such loyalty is beyond price.

She loves people. Turns 4 June 1, hard to believe she'll be middle-aged. I remember when she was a puppy, we had to mow the grass just so she could go answer nature.

Gorgeous.. They look a real team those two. My two shepherds used to play with a golden ret that used to live over the road. The couple divorced and the husband took him with him.
