First of all, the site looks great Gary. This is Tonedog from back in the day. I decided to just randomly see if molosserdogs was still around, fearing the worst, but wow, looks good.  Maybe some controversial debate will help liven the place up a bit? lol Over the last few years I've been continuing my recreational research into dogs and dog history (which has now spanned many decades), and I've stumbled onto a realization that "mastiffs" basically don't exist and never did.   Hear me out...  I believe the mastiff category is merely comprised of retired dogs from various other functional types.

There are those that believe that everyone should not use any aversive when training a dog or doing behavioral modification.  They believe operant and classical condition is the only way to go. Others prefer to use force corrections. They use tools like check chains, pronged collars, e-collars, etc. There are also those that call themselves balance trainers. Instead of trying to train a dog or modify its behavior by force only or positive reinforcement only they believe nature teaches us that you need to have a balance between both in when dealing with dogs. I'm curious as to what other preference are? Where do you stand on this subject. I won't condemn anyone for their methods of choice

Did you know you can change the look and feel of the site by choosing a template?Here is how to do it - since the home page is somewhat large choose a page that is easier such as click on Polls or Organizations from the menu (it will prevent long scrolling).Then scroll down to the footer of the site and click on the Design link.You will then see a popup with the Design selections.Just click one to change.The default for the website is Artificer so you may give that a try. Also, if you have your device set to dark mode the designs adopt nicely to match your device mode.Have fun with it. :)

Are there any kennels or farms with lots of dogs, or owners of lots of dogs buying quality kibble or canned dog food in bulk from a retailer and getting a discount in addition to regular discounts because of buying by the pallet? (Example buying several pallets at Petco and receiving a discount from buying in bulk.) How much is the discount?I asked at Petco they said no they don't give discounts even when buying in bulk.
Last summer my baby boy, Spartacus got bit by a rattlesnake. I live out in the country but sped as fast as I could to the nearest emergency vet as it was on a weekend. He had been vaccinated but I don’t know if it really helped. He survived and for that I’m glad. It was a $2,000+ bill, just FYI… They wanted another $900 to observe him for 2 hours. I observed him myself…anyway… after this horrific incident I learned there are Rattlesnake Adversion Clinics out there!!! Some travel around and offer their classes to a variety of locations. I found one and I took my dog to the next one that came to my area. I have to admit I wasn’t convinced that the class did anything other than show my dog ratt

I saw this on LinkedIn and was touched by the care and effort it took to save this dog. It is also sad that a dog could be treated in such a horrible way by its previous owners. Have a look.
