re: Help with training a dog - shell01
You have a sporting breed, a dog that needs a job. You're in he right track wanting to trainnit but not to "instill discipline" but more to provide mental stimulation. The dog also needs physical exercise...think long walks in the woods, throwing the ball in the back yard, and once it gets a little...

re: Looking to buy a German Shepherd for Christmas - shell01
Loyalty and protective instict can be a problem the hands of the wrong person, or an unsocialized dog, so be sure you are ready to put in the work. And websites are great and all but a good breeder has their dogs sold before they are even born, so there's not huge incentive to have the spiffiest...

re: Looking to buy a German Shepherd for Christmas - shell01
Yes...don't do it. And definitely don't do it based on the AKC website. What do you like about GSDs? What do you want from your dog? Just a best bud or personal protection, running buddy? German Shepherds can be great, my favorite breed in fact, but careless breeding has practically ruined them....

re: Does anyone have an Thermostat that uses Wifi like a Nest or Honeywell lyric? - shell01
Love having a smart thermostat. We have had a Nest for a few years. Can be controlled by multiple phones (yes sometimes that leads to thermostat wars...) A few things we like about it: - turn heat on from bed upstairs in the morning before getting up - setting system. To a very efficient setti...

Good topic WestCoastAg, but I have to say my friend Dante Fenolio is a much more talented photographer.

re: Republicans Outperforming Their Expectations in Florida – Even Compared to 2016 Florida Nu - shell01
Gumbo I'm not so sure about that. I live in Jackson County and we were absolutely destroyed by the storm, and we're 50 miles inland. People are still literally camping out, there's no temporary shelter available here in town or with about an hour of here. The more coastal counties have it even wors...
