    This! HOLY SMOKES!

    Camano will NOT place a puppy or dog with an animal rights actictivist, an animal rights advocate, a member of humane societies, a member/volunteer or employee of the S.P.C.A., or any other individual/member of a "dog friendly" group who engages in

    Even volunteers?!

    Regarding second hand dog agencies, please note that those agencies have no knowledge of the dog they are selling you for an "adoption" price. The agencies do not have pedigree/ancestor information of the dogs or any information on the upbringing of the dogs. They do, however, make up soap opera stories to attract buyers with the aim to get an emotional response. If you own such a dog we will not place a Camano boxer into your home.

    They won't give you a puppy if you have a rescue dog?! WTF.

    We will not accept your application if you plan on mutilating your dog to comply with the mass hypnosis of neutering/spaying on the American continent.

    ..that's a little dramatic.

    We request that you refrain from mingling with mixed breed dogs and refrain from walking your boxer on the grounds where these dogs mingle. Do not leave your dog in boarding kennels where dogs are allowed to mingle.

    MIXED BREEDS DOGZ HAV DA DISEASES!! SHUN!!!!!!

    If a breeder tells you that his/her dogs have a good temperament, then you must ask for the record of working titles. Temperament can only be assessed if the dog has a working title record - not a show title record


    er... when the hell did temperament start being dependent on working titles?

    Contrary to the development in other countries of the world, only few real dogs reside on the American continent. It is safe to conclude that the average American/Canadian may not know what a dog is.

    Oh god. remember our REAL DOG discussion? :rofl1::rofl1:

    Excellent medical veterinary books are available on the American book market. Technical books are expensive and you will need to spend the time reading them. You don't have the time to read them? Then you have no time for a dog. Don't bother getting one! You have no money to buy a veterinary medical book? Don't bother getting a dog!

    Don't want to buy expensive veterinary textbooks and take hours trying to basically learn to be a vet via book?
    TOO BAD!!

    Prime activity on the American continent is to render all dogs into useless pets. False reports are welcome to catch the few real dogs that are still left on this continent! Humane mass hypnosis!

    :rofl1::rofl1::rofl1::rofl1::rofl1:

    If you own and breed valuable registered dogs, consider leaving Canada. For the protection and safety of your dogs apply pre-emption against the terrorism threatening the registered animals in Canada and USA!

    This is the REAL terrorist threat to our countries people!


    This is just too much. Oh god. I can't even believe there are people like this out there! and that people buy puppies from them!!!

    I'm surprised they've even heard of sugar or honey treatments - they're sometimes used as dressings for large wounds, believe it or not they can be antibacterial and promote healing. [​IMG]

    But anyway... I'm sure it's hard to walk the line between too much and not enough when it comes to being involved in puppies' new lives, but... I think I'd simply consider that contract one of nature's warning signs and go elsewhere.

    Well my mixed breed told me to avoid crazies like that person. And I think I trust her a little more.

    Read the contract, went to the website, and read the About part. This is someone who moved from Europe to Canada with several new ball gowns excited about the "Winter Ball Season". I would think mixing with ANY of us, much less mixed breed dogs, might be beneath the owner lol.

    This is wayyyyyy beyond crazy o_____0


    We've used honey on the rhinos and elephants at the zoo before for wound dressings. I've used it on myself. I wouldn't hesitate to use it on my dogs either! Fantastic stuff.

    I particularly like this bit (on the main website)

    She had to have the
    lawyer explain to her that Canadian men are a
    different breed with regard to education. She
    gave her second husband 14 days to come up
    with his future job description. When after a one
    week extension he failed to present her with his
    goals, instead planned to buy a new pair of skis,
    she divorced him. This behavior of Canadian
    men is foreign to Germany and Austria.
    Although, they are good in doing the laundry,
    house cleaning and cooking, she decided
    Canadian men weren't worth the trouble.


    LOL!!

    Hmm, that actually sort of makes sense.

    a. If you ask your dog to lie down near a stranger and the stranger doesn't notice or doesn't know your dog is there, he may step on the dog. This is actually something we have to be aware of when we're working service dogs in busy areas.

    b. At work, our staff and volunteers are all forbidden to teach service dogs to shake! :) Seriously, once you reinforce them a lot for pawing, it becomes their default, and then they're going to want to do EVERY behavior by pawing! - closing/opening doors, hitting lightswitches, etc. Which is a really good way to get your furniture and walls all scratched up, and a huge problem if you live in an apartment (as at least half of our clients do).

    I MIGHT teach Keegan shake one day.... probably when he's about six. :D

    c. Too much jumping at the wrong height is bad for puppy joints. Doesn't mean you shouldn't do it AT ALL, but it is something puppy owners need to think about.



    But yeah, that breeder's a little too paranoid. I wonder if she provides all of her puppy buyers with their own foil hats.

    Maybe "What exercises should you contemplate carefully before teaching"...but "never ever"? I am DESPERATELY trying to get Lucy to "down" near strangers. She can't settle when people are around, so at trials she's a complete spazzy mess. I need her to be able to relax in crowds of people. Paw is a great trick--I don't see a problem with it so long as you are training other skills as well and not reinforcing it except when you ask for it. Lucy didn't start smacking everything in sight until we taught her "drum roll" ;) That one I should have thought through a little more carefully. We teach puppies to go over jumps all. the. time. We just keep the jumps super low until they're older.

    I guess all the absolutes just bug me.

    Not doing down near a stranger could make doing rally or obed tricky. What if the moving down is near the judge/ring steward, or some random person standing near the fencing?
