Re: Tamaskans and Prey Drive

Hawthorne, I wish all breeders of "challenging" breeds followed your practices. It sounds like you are doing everything right. And from the other breeders I've talked to over the last few years it seems like most of them do a good job of informing their puppy buyers. Not just 'challenging' breeds, ...

Re: Tamaskans and Prey Drive

I think this forum is a great place to share experiences and to make sure that anyone who wants this breed and comes to the forum looking for info knows all the challenges they might be signing up for before getting one.

Tamaskans and Prey Drive

Hello, I'm a guy who lives with his brother, two smallish dogs, two pygmy goats, and five cats. I've been very curious about the Tamaskan dog lately. When I was a kid, I had a German Shepherd who was my best friend. I've been thinking of getting something like that, but was thinking of a dog with a ...

Hello from Minnesota!

I've been registered for a while, but I've never introduced myself, so here goes. There's not a lot to say, except that I've fallen in love with this breed since I was first introduced to it. I've never owned a Tamaskan, and I hope that one day in my life, I'll be blessed with one. I was once adopte...
