I literally talk about basset hounds every time dogs are mentioned.

They're stubborn, stupid and get lost easily but they're so cute and funny. I want to own a kennel and breed 'em some day.

I wish there was a giant breed basset hound that was larger and stuff. Like the size of a mastiff just lower.

Well, today could be the last for the dog I grew up with. Little dachshund made it through eighteen years. My parents got her when I was nine. Cutest fuckin' puppy man. I live out of state, so it's hitting my mom especially hard right now. I guess my mom woke up and she's just been pretty much unresponsive all morning. They let me video chat before they take her to the vet so I could see her one last time. Shit sucks man. At least my parents spoiled the fuck out of her, so she had a good, comfy life, as all dogs should.

Have 3 dogs, didn't plan on 3, the lab is my wife's and the Shepard mix is mine. My brother in law (who was 19 and still lived with his parents) bought the Doberman without his parents permission. They raise chickens and the last time they had a large dog it was able to get into thier chicken enclosure and eat the chickens. So we ended up with the Doberman too.

Bit sad about the dobie. Guess they didn't want to risk it. I mean I've seen a half wolfhound be gentle as fuck around chickens (and only just mean enough to the sheep that they didn't climb on her, well excepting the ram who needed putting in his place) but if your brother did that he probably wouldn't train it half as well.

Of course at some point a fox will come in and straight up murder them and not eat them all because that's what foxes do.

The dog they had before that ate thier chickens was a chow x St Bernard that was thickheaded and pretty aggressive.
Honestly they would have been fine with the Doberman, she's very obedient and can't really jump high. It's actually kinda funny because she gets frustrated that the lab can get on our patio and she can't.

Yeah chows are shits. The thing about the doberman is that it's well trained but you raised it, not some kid who buys animals without even thinking to ask the home owner when they're basically just a free tenant.

I'm not sure if I'll ever get a dog but I've always got time for labs. They're a just a good all around dog. Maybe collies are smarter but they're extremely trainable and good natured. Maybe not as good for defense or shepherding but if you want a family companion or a guide dog I think that combination is why they're the go to. They learn fast but they're not super bright which I think works in their favour. There's thicker dogs but labs are just smart enough to do what you need and no smarter. I've seen hamsters with more imagination than your average lab but he'll learn the words and gestures to do whatever he needs to do flawlessly.

I feel bad for pugs though. They're just inbreeding gone wrong and people treasure them for it. Fucking bug eyed thing barely able to think but it knows existence is suffering and people are like "yeah I want one" instead of getting a collie who can do their fucking tax returns, an alsatian who will chew intruders in half or a beagle with enough acting chops that it's used to illustrate the mood of the Enterprise instead of the crew.

>training methods

my mom got a morkie (maltese yorkie cross) 4 years ago and I've been doing most of his training. we didn't have him neutered, and I was afraid he'd have all those awful small yappy dog qualities so I've used the basics that I know to make sure he's well behaved.

It's awesome. I've never hurt or stricken him, which I feel good about. He housetrained rapidly, knows all the commands he needs to keep him safe while unleashed (like a clap and name call means "DANGER come inside now", which I use for when cars are passing by. he comes every time.)

I haven't taught him any "tricks" and when I try he doesn't really seem to get it (he knows sit and stay), so he's certainly not a genius. but he's very emotionally intelligent - by staying consistent and authoritative he's become great at telling moods and reading facial cues for when it's playtime and when i want him to go away, doesn't have separation anxiety, doesn't try to run after shit or pull on walks. By not hitting him or giving praise/encouragement towards aggression he basically thinks the whole world is his friend and doesn't show that typical small dog paranoia. Great with other people and other animals - I see him observing breaks in play with other dogs which shows he's good at reading their cues, and he's gentle and quiet with small kids, and patient with all the fur ruffling and nose booping and other annoying shit I do to him. I'm pretty happy with how he's turned out at 4 years old. He's bred to just be a goofy friendly companion dog and that's what he is. I think I've helped to curb the more annoying traits of small dogs out of him.

His "alarm bark" though (like "hey that's your brother that just parked outside!" or "the mailman's here!") is fucking deafening though, it's this high pitched howl. and I don't know how to get him to quit the behavior - he's otherwise a very calm and well-adjusted canid so I'm not sure what approach would work.

> getting a collie who can do their fucking tax returns
I grew up with a collie... Compared to most other breeds, they're the rocket scientists and particle physicists of the dog world.

story time:

The house I lived in back then had a large, paved area at the front of the house. This area was raised about a meter from the sidewalk, and it had a hedge going down one side.

My collie, Penny, would often lie peacefully here and keep an eye on passing traffic and greet shoppers, but some dipshit from my sister's school would pass by every day and throw stones and gravel at her. This would continue for a few months until she decided enough was enough!

One day, my mom noted she had been behaving a bit strangely that afternoon, often keeping close to the hedge. She called me into the shop, and as i came in, I saw her sneak slowly along the hedge and towards the sidewalk. All of a sudden Dipshit kid comes along and she barked him right in the fucking ear.
Dipshit kid fell over, tumbled around a bit and then ran away....

he learned two lessons for life that day: Don't fuck with collies and collies are smart enough to plot revenge schemes and execute them.

My parents bought and trained Penny, and she was very protective of me when I was a toddler (to hte point of biting the mailman when he came too close to me.. the only time she bit someone)... As I grew older, i'd teach her tricks and we would do pranks together... we were basically a real-life version of Timmy and Lassie... but from hell :D

You all know the classic of spraying whipped cream into the hand of someone sleeping, and then tickling his face... try a version with a handful of dog slobber instead >:D

lol that barking story is great. i'll share a story an older friend of mine told me about his dog, who passed away a couple of years ago, a very loving and obedient german shepherd. apparently on a daily basis, some kids walking home from high school would taunt and torment this dog, throwing things at it, basically the same as your collie. well one day this german shepherd saw the kids coming, and grabbed a chain-link metal fence gate on wheels with his teeth and shook it so hard the wheels came off their metal tracks, enabling him to escape. he was almost upon the shitter kids when my friend the owner yelled the dogs name and he froze then obediently came back. he then told the kids "if you keep bothering him and he gets out again, next time im gonna let him eat you." and they fearfully agreed and ran off. dog actually broke one of his teeth tearing the wheels off their tracks though, had to have it removed, one of the canines so he only had 3 left, p. sad, but at least he was never tormented again

We got two dogs now, but we normally have 3 at a time.
The most recent dog to pass away... miss him so much.
He was a big goofy Rotty, but he had a pretty messed up life from the start
Got parvo, like the rest of his litter and almost died real young, I think it legit messed up his brain a little, he was never the same happy dog.
But my mom nursed him to health and he survived.
Cut to about ten years down the line and he's so unstable as a dog that he's bitten family members pretty badly. So he had to be put into my parents room, and we put curtains up so he couldn't see anyone, but could hear things to feel comforted but not threatened. he lived a good 16 years. Good boy, Czar!
