A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government. -- George Washington

 

Well there  you have it.. I am Gary, the one who started this website in 2000. It has seen some mutations from a photo-gallery only using photopost software, to a forum using phpbb, Simple Machines, then a CMS using PHPnuke, to a CMs using e107, Boonex Dolphin and now you have its latest incarnation in the form of a social networking community site powered by UNA Community Builder.  Through all this time I have tried to maintain impartiality towards the members and their views and gave reasonable freedoms to those who want to post and share their knowledge.

The breed profiles can be found in the Articles section in the appropriately named categories.  The vast majority of the profiles were written by Wolf a former member and administrator.

I am the one to contact if you have any questions or concerns about this site.  If you have any dog questions please post them in the appropriate forums of write a blog about it.  

I wrote all this stuff here so that other members can see that they can write a description also... What are you waiting for.. get your description updated... Welcome!

      Molosser Fans, if you live near Pima, Arizona or can make the trip to the shelter you may be able to save a big dog or two. There are many large breed dogs being turned in to the shelter and it could be caused by the current state of the economy or simply people leaving or arriving and can't keep their dogs. Either way, there are many dogs that need your help. Follow this link to see the article and help if you can. You may also help by donating to the rescue organization so they can care for and transport these dogs we love. The dogs are at the Pima Animal Care Center. People who wish to adopt or foster are advised to contact the shelter by calling 520-724-5900, visiting webcms.pima.gov or visiting the shelter in person. It is open Monday to Friday, noon to 7 p.m., and 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

       A Pekingese named Wasabi won Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on Sunday. He beat out a fantastic Whippet, a sheepdog and a Samoyed that was the top-ranked show dog in the country.  How does this Pekingese beat the top ranked show dog in the country. Oh wait, he did not - the Judge did. Read more if you dare not to be disgusted with the politics of dog shows in the USA.

      As the proud pet parent of one Black Russian Terrier and three adopted cats, I know the immense joy and positive impact pets can have on your family. They not only make us happier in normal times but in stressful times – like the pandemic – their unconditional love and companionship go even further. This National Pet Month, Walmart is excited to celebrate all the pets we’ve welcomed into our homes – new and old – and all my fellow pet parents who understand pets aren’t just pets. They’re family. Way to go Walmart

      My other question is, after we paid the new puppy's money, our veterinqrian claimed that we bought a tiny horse and that he will be about 176-198lbs.I was hoping that he will be about 154 lbs. Is my vet's prediction a 100% true prediction or is there a possibility that he will be thinner when he becomes an adult/mature dog? Or can I modify it by adjusting his food?
      gsicard
      Thanks for your answer. I am again happy to hear that the other puppy looks very good, does he look like he will have mostly gray coat?
      Yes. Mostly gray with black mask

      Thanks for your answer. I started to think like the vet is testing my patience. Yesterday she sent a photo of two CO puppies, one of them is selected with a red sign. She said "We selected this puppy because this is the best one and he is on the road". I don't know why she did that, I had told her that I liked gray COs and didn't want a CO with a yellow like color and I had told her the puppy I chose, but seems like she/they chose the puppy with the most yellow-like coat color. I don't understand why my choice isn't accepted and enforce their choice.
      Knight99
      Whatever, here are the pictures of the final puppy, he is on the road, probably even arrived to my country from Georgia. I am sending his pictures, actually with hope that there may be a possibility that he would not look like a Kangal when he becomes an adult. In any case, there is nothing to do actually and at least I am very happy that at last I am getting a CO, he has been my dream dog breed for years, basically he has been the thing I wanted to have most.

      That one circled in red is very nice. Will be Grey color. Not yellow.
      Knight99
      Thanks for your answer, it's nice to hear that he is a very nice puppy and looks gray. In the first picture I had thought he looked gray. In the second and third pictures(again same puppy), I had thought he looked yellowish.

      No problem. Please share photos when you get your pup

      Hello, yesterday our vet told us that the puppy arrived and in a few days we will get the puppy from the vet. But at the same time, she introduced us to a dog trainer although we didn't ask. Nobody did that before, so that made my family members get scared..The trainer offered us to help the puppy's training, one or two times a week for... 1 year! We started to get the impression that to be able to have a CO one should be a professional trainer. I have some experience with a Doberman(short term), then a Pitbull(short term),then a Rottweiler(long term) and then an Akbash dog(long term). After hearing that, the trainer told us that he would never trust a Rottweiler and that a CO is a much more dependable dog. I actually don't want to train the dog with a trainer for such a long time, I want to train my dog myself without a trainer. Is it not possible to train a CO without a professional trainer,, I have some knowledge about dog psychology mentally, I have read books and watched many videos about dog psychology and behavior and plus I have long term experience with a Rottweiler and Akbash, also I had joined some training sessions with a few trainers during my dogs' training classes.
      Knight99
      We may join training classes again if needed, but I definitely don't want to train the dog with a trainer for one year.
      Knight99
      I've read a Caucasian Ovcharka breed book by Stacey Kubyn too, she says that you should be an experienced dog owner for a CO but noone says that "you should be a professional dog trainer". In the past, more than 7 years ago I think, on the forum I used to follow a CO owner lady's posts, she was asking some basic training questions, you and some other forum members were giving advice to her. Actually before buying the CO puppy, I remembered her questions and thought"even if she is able to handle a CO, appearently inexperienced with dogs, I can handle a CO, easier than her".
      Knight99
      If we make built this type of fence(maybe a taller one) for our home, would it be enough for containing a CO? (In the picture, the dog inside is a CO)
      Knight99

      I hope I didn't say something wrong in my previous posts.I used to follow your posts on the forums in the past.I generally don't ask my questions about dogs, on the forums, because some people give rude answers and that really annoys me. I have always thought you have been so kind and that plus I trust your knowledge and experience, so I prefer asking and writing to you instead of writing on the forums.

      Sorry for the delay in response. I am finally on vacation and was not paying attention to the site. Needed a break.
      gsicard
      However. Regarding owning a CO we can substitute intelligence for experience. Meaning that the new owner must be able to read and understand and learn the dogs temperament and breed characteristics.
      gsicard
      Armed with that information and the desire to have a good experience with the CO a prudent person who knows something about dogs can have a good experience with owning a CO. Problem occurs when owners are lazy and don't pay particular attention to their dog especially in the first year. I recommend reading the article "A miracle of nature" right here on md and also the breed profile. You may have already.
