Re: Burying poop with nose... This is new to me!

Sawyer does this using his nose more with his urine , but a few times he tries to do it with his poop too. He eliminates (most of the time) in a small rock/pebble box I set up in the yard. Makes it easy to clean up poop and hopefully the urine won't kill all the grass. So it's even easier for him to...

Re: United States has changed import regulations

I agree that these new regs will be an issue here in the US, but I was quite shocked that Sylvaen was able to ship six 9 week old pups to the US from Croatia with no issue at at all. No quarantine, no health check upon entering the US. In fact the paperwork accompanying my girl upon arriving at RDU ...

Re: Curly Tails?

So an "acceptable" or "breed standard" excited tail might be equivalent to Wylie's "swimming tail" or Chrono's straight tail

Re: Curly Tails?

From the TDR Wesbite - Breed Standard: http://www.tamaskan-dog.org/breed-info/breed-standard.php Tail: At rest the tail is carried downward, but when the dog is excited or in motion, it is carried higher. The tail, should not be carried curled over the back. Coarse thick hair but not feathered. Can ...

Re: Curly Tails?

But what breed would we want as an outcross that could help "straighten" the tail in future generations?

I know our curly tails are way down on the list of things to correct, I'm just curious how would we go about correcting this in future generations.

Re: Curly Tails?

What outcrosses would be beneficial to help "breed out" the curly tails found in a lot of our excited Tams? I know that is not something we are looking to breed out just yet, especially since several of the recent outcross studs (Arrow and Ninja) are Husky which is definitely not helping to straight...

Re: US Tamaskan Dog Club, Inc. (USTDC)

I have been struggling with becoming a member of the USTDC. As I haven't really seen what I get out of being in the club. Since the breed is so small, any club gatherings are likely NOT close enough for many to take a day trip. Have there even been any club gatherings in 2014...or planned in the rem...

Re: Up and coming breeders discussion

This will be great. As far as a local mentor, do you suggest local like in the same town? Same state? Tarheel is kind of local, but not convenient for frequent visits. Also, when looking for an experienced local breeder, what type of of breeds would be best? Sibes, GSD, arctic breed...these types of...

Re: GPS Dog Tracker

Get the protective sleeves for them... if your dogs wrestle or mouth each others necks they easily detach and become chew toys... kind of expensive to replace. Been hoping for some extra collars to go up on ebay since the last one was chewed up but no luck on the extra collars just the original pac...

I have one for my tamaskan Zephyr... well had it never stayed attached to his collar and well and my other dog found it when it popped off and well used it as a chew toy. Great piece of technology but do get the protective sleeve for it. You had the Tagg brand pet tracker? I ordered 2, one for Sawy...

Thank Tracy. I already got in touch with Dokken's owners.

The TAGG GPS tracking device seems really great. I might give it a try.

GPS Dog Tracker

Does anyone use or have experience with a GPS dog tracking collar attachment in case of escape?

One of my co-workers recently had a lab pup escape so now I am thinking a GPS tracker for Sawyer's collar might be a good investment.
