    Bringing a foreign dog into the US.. anybody ever done it?

    i've brought 3 dogs into the country in the last 4 years, and have not needed proof of anything to get them in. the first time i did it, i thought it would be way harder than it was. our customs agents were definitely more lax than the agents to get the dogs out of their country!

    What is your favorite Disney Movie scene/song?

    'the emporer's new groove' is a hilarious movie & 'the lion king' is just wonderful all around. those are probably my two favorites in a long line of very good movies.

    What can Amstaff people tell me about these kennels/bloodlines?

    i've been in amstafs for 12 years now, and have never heard of "yonac" "clark" or "holliday" as kennel names. i've owned a couple of perdue dogs & spent time with pam learning about her history, selection process etc & messing with her dogs. i've seen several edelhaus dogs, but personally...

    breeding debate, opinion?

    well, another way to look at it is this - all the money made from the dogs goes back into the "dog fund" rather than being spent on the other 99% of life's expenses. within that model, yes, puppy sales would cover the cost of a later breeding. sometimes it's how people say things, not what...

    Health Testing and Breeding

    the ataxia test has only been around for a few years, so that's not really the right question to ask. of all the things that will be the downfall of this breed, ataxia, while on the list, is certainly not at the top. i am curious though, how many breedings of confirmed affected dogs do you...

    Guard Dogs?

    lots of fencing! the property dogs would have to have a perimeter around the dogs they're gaurding - and their job is to keep anyone and anything out of that 'safe zone.' however, to protect yourself, and keep in line w/the reality of "guard dogs," you'll have to have them w/in a fence too - a...

    Pit Bull Schutzhund/dog Protection Training wrong to right??

    peoples' romanticized visions of "personal protection" dogs (whatever exactly that means in this day and age) crack me up.

    Schutzhund with the fuzzies (lots of photos)

    no problem, i know the pedigree. "switchblade's" grandfather was bred by friends of mine, the van leeuwens. here's one of mine that they bred if you like the ds now, i bet it won't be long before you have one ;-)

    Random ? about "man stopping power dogs"

    thanks. the padded stick is used to hit the dog at different parts of the protection routine. the purpose of the stick hits is to see if the dog is intimidated by them - as would be evidenced by loosening the grip, coming off the sleeve etc etc.

    Schutzhund with the fuzzies (lots of photos)

    are you familiar with rampage's bloodlines? there aren't a lot of people breeding "knpv" dogs here in the states ATM, so i'm just wondering. :) sadly, for the DS, it gets more popular every day.
