Those who know me know that I'm really into dogs. So here are some pics of my dogs and training I've done.

Here you go Sid I know you enjoy this stuff

My boys
Jomo who I lost about 3 years ago

Cinque aka Freight Train who I lost last year to cancer. This dog was a complete man stopper.

I loved those two dogs man. Due to time and all the activities I'm involved in I did not get another working dog after my boys passed. I simply don't have the time to invest and compete like I use to, but once I retire I will get heavily involved again.

Anyway I got a companion dog now he is a big powder puff. He was on the kill list at the shelter so I went and picked him up. I've had him for about a year now and he is a sweet dog and very very smart. I talk to him like he's a 5 year old child, but the difference is he listens.lol This is Biko

I use to take my first two Shepherds to protection training, did so for about 1 1/2 years, with a guy named Sam/Sparten K9 (years ago). Years later got a really tuff male out of a Schutzhund III male and Schutzhund II female. Now I have a little shit ass house dog that is a great 24/7 companion. Good looking dogs, no better friend then a good dog.

Yeah my plan is to compete in French Ring and Mondio Ring upon my retirement. I started out doing Schutzhund and it is very tedious training for dog and handler. I never really liked tracking and I like bite suits over a sleeve. Saying that Schutzhund has a lot of hell of a good trainers and dogs.

Hey a little shit house dog is cool because like you said they make great companion.

Thanks for sharing the pics. I love Shepherds and have had a few over the years, but can't have one now as my wife is allergic to dander. Would love to get another working dog or a long hair. Maybe one day, until then I enjoy the pictures and seeing others with their dogs. ;)

Sorry to hear you lost duke. It sucks.
No I don't know Eckart Salquist but it looks like he is breeding the right way and has a very nice facility.

Yeah man I can't wait to get another Dutch Shepherd but that will be upon my retirement. I don't have the time for a working dog at this time. It would be totally unfair to the dog. So for now the American Staffordshire Terrier is fulfilling my dog need. He is a great companion dog. Loves to ride in the car and I even took him to a couple of meet and greets and people are amazed by how well behaved he is and just show him so much love that he is spoiled.lol

First, YES!!
How is it I get two pounds of waste for every pound of food??? Must be the added moisture!!! Actually bought one of those janitor scoops on a handle with wheels and a kids plastic hoe. So long as I cruise the yard about every other day, It's not bad... And three of the dogs are small...
That's just a start, then I have chickens, ducks, geese and two goats.... Ah the country life!

The most I ever had was 3 shepherds at once, using a high quality lean food really cuts down on the turds.

You are 100% correct the cheap stuff is nothing but filler. The better grade dog food the less poop.
