    Helpful Hint I take my shoes off at the door upon arrival, only because I hate wearing shoes anymore than absolutely necessary. However, i just bought a condo and it has brand new hard wood floors, i have decided the 'furry four legged creatures' paws nails would be bad enough, but i don't...

    New rescue dog got into a fight at obedience class

    HOT DOGS ARE GREAT!!! I got Buc from a breeder out in the sticks of Minnesotta and coming to a big noisy city like downtown Chicago was a shock. He still isn't the most confident dog, but I used hot dog bits as a reward for a day of good exploring. Had a rough time with him and anything that...
