Nope, my vizsla can't do that. I can't put a saddle on him and ride him around the yard either. Pretty soon you might be able to use your dog as your tow vehicle to get your boat to the lake.

Funny you should mention that. He's got a weight-pulling harness smile

So how tall is he when he stands on 2 feet? grin

Well, I am 6'2" and if he puts his paws on my shoulders and stretches out, he's probably between 6'6" and 7'. Gentle as can be, though. Our nieces and nephew crawl all over him.

Seems like the bigger the dog the more laid back and gentle they are. They seem to know that they don't have anything to prove.

The little dogs on the other hand, it seems like they all have some sort of insecurities about their size so they try to make up for by acting all tough.

How true. My bro-in-law's Yorkie tries to push Floyd around all the time.

Seems to apply to male humans as well.....

How is the Dane in the house? Is he easy to control on walks and such?

Just curious because we have thought about getting one.

Thanks!

He's pretty laid back around the house. And he does very well on walks--my wife is 5' and has no probs with him. Of course, with a dog this size, proper training and socialization are critical.

Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions about the breed: ryan (dot) bielat (at) gmail (dot) com

Thanks. We are going to wait until the cat passes (she's 14) to get another dog (we currently have a lab) but I will take you up on that when the time comes!

    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
