  1. There are a ton of great dogs in rescue now that they have become so popular.

    Is Interceptor Plus safe?

    hey guys, so my little girl picked up whipworms so I was consoled into switching from heartguard to interceptor plus as a preventative. The active ingredients are milbemycin and praziquantel. I have done some preliminary google searches and it seems to check out but since tomorrow is meds day I wanted to check with the experts. Thanks in advance

    Collie Breeding

    I know this is an old post but this guy is writing like he is on adderall or meth or is like some of yall said a troll. it sounds like OP is conflicted, he/she knows he is breeding to just try and make some money, but wanted some type of approvement from the board. The best advice I can give is the same I tell myself, leave the breeding to the experts. If you are having to ask simple dominant/recessive questions then you probably shouldn't be breeding. I applaud everyone else for being so respectful.
  5. Unfortunately, I think I have fallen prey to this. It is hard to conceive but the more I think about it, the "rescue" I adopted my dog from sorta fits the description described in this article. There is no way to know for sure but this definitely makes me think twice about how I find dogs in the future. I have been wanting to get a third BC and at this point, I am thinking I need to just buy from a reputable breeder. It is easy to get caught up in the idea that you're helping an animal and forget that when humans are involved there is almost always some type of foul play involved.
  6. I take mine on a 20-minute walk in the morning and then an hour-long jog/walk in the evening. I also try to take them to the dog park or a longer hike once a week for an extra hour or two and they are both really well behaved. I also bring them outside when I go out to smoke or do yard work and I just live on a half acre. As long as I stick to the short walk in the morning and long in the evening they are happy and won't cause any mischief. Mine are 2 and 4 years old and in very good health

    Hello!

    hello BC_Tigger, I am also new here and have been scrolling through as many useful topics as possible and already really appreciate this forum and wish I had looked 4 years ago when I got my first BC. Both of mine have their front dew claws intact and no rear dew claws. I personally just keep them well trimmed since I do a lot of hiking and running and haven't had any issues. Then again, I would have them removed if they seemed to be barely clinging on.

    Concerns about MDR1

    IMO you and the other main contributors sounded extremely knowledgeable. I personally adopt resues or unwanted BCs because my first(which my uncle gifted me) saved my life after returning from Afghanistan so breeding isn't something I do or know much about. I do support those who work these dogs like they were bred, leading me to lean towards possibly culling while still containable. My opinion means little though, and outside this comment, will leave these decisions to the experts and hope for the best. It is good to see that people do care

    Concerns about MDR1

    Ive learned a lot from these two discussions about MDR1 so thank you all. I am a dummy so most went over my head but I am interested to see where this goes.

    Seeking information about breeder

    I have a rescue which originated from these guys and although she is a great dog and I love her I would not buy from her personally. She is a high volume breeder, keeps the dogs in dirty environments, and breeds specifically for merles and lilacs. I guess it just depends on what you want, I think people get too caught up in wanting a working dog when they just want a companion. Not to say that I condone irresponsible breeding but if a breeder takes care of her dogs and doesn't false advertise I don't see a problem.
