    This thread rocks. Unfortuantely, I let my dog get out of shape. I need to figure out how to work him back into shape enough to go on rides with me.

    How much does she weigh? looks like some sheppard, hard telling though, typically heelers dont have a long nose its shorter to their face. She is pretty

    Thanks PinkBarron, I will tell her you said so.

    She is a solid little dog, weighs close to 60 lbs, which is too much, but she is stuck by herself in the yard all day while I am at work.

    Her mom was a really pretty 30 lb heeler that a guy was breeding but the day before the "arranged" marriage, daddy jumped the fence.

    ahhhh I'm so jealous. My buddies and I in my biking club (SUNY Oneonta MTB) keep wishing we could get Student Assembly funds to buy a traildog. Don't think it's gonna happen anytime soon though....bummer.

    As for all those negative nancies who are complaing about rover on the trails, I think it's awesome that people have their dogs trained to run the trails. And in my experience, anyone with a dog has been responsible and courteous. The one time I did have a fun-in with a dog, It wasn't anyone's fault but the owneer/rider still said "sorry, he's still kinda new," and all 3 of us went along our merry ways. Cheers!
    Go ride your bike.

    Rita the Retriever loves to ride. Rescued as a puppy from a shelter - her momma looked like a black Flat Coat Retriever, and had 6 pups at the shelter - 5 were golden females, 1 was a black male. Cutest litter ever. Dad was a "traveling salesman", so we don't know what he was - probably a Golden.

    She's everything we could ask in a dog:

    - GREAT with kids
    - Enthusiastic 24/7
    - Doesn't shed
    - Sweet disposition
    - GREAT listener
    - Wants to please

    Good job! Best thread ever! (and asking for advice)

    I really really enjoy all your pics and comments (I tried to read most of it...I swear)...great dogs!! Congratulations!!

    now..please help!.. I have been thinking a lot about getting a dog and I think I almost convince the wife!! she also saw some pics of this thread with me yesterday!! As a kid I had Cocker Spaniels and Basset Hounds...but now I want a big dog...In fact I was thinking about a Lab a lot.

    I want a Dog which easy to train (if that really exist) and since I saw this thread I also want one who can join me on long rides (6 hrs at least), including stops when he (or me) needs it.

    I live in Monterrey, Mexico....during summer we can reach 45C (113F) and during Winter as low as 0C (32F) but when is extremly cold....8C (46.4F) is more commun...

    Am I going right with a lab?

    Thanks!!!

    you have to be careful of the pads on thier feet. over long periods of running they'll separate from thier feet.

    I think so, these were the same reasons I choose mine!

    Things to note, if ya choose from a pup or already grown e.g if ya pick up from SPCA etc!

    Is do your research on the Dogs father and mother, lol.

    To me Labs Pure or Mixed are good though the latter, mixed for biking and pet is better imo, reason is PURE breeds can depending on the breeder and history can give problems, so know ya information and what you're looking at, its not a show dog, its a riding dog and family member!

    Same with mixed, I like this option cause you can search out the desired characteristic for the trail life and family life and the cross breeds can make a stronger dog if again the history is good and the mixed breeds are good!

    I struck it lucky as mine [Maxxis] dad was pure breed Lab, so he has the big head and lab characteristics retrieving fearless in water and just a great dog!
    Mum was wippet [greyhound like] with lots of other breeds in her too, she had a great calm nature[something Maxxis doesen't possess yet but hes still a pup @ 17months] she was tall long and lean!

    So Maxxis has leaner longer les than Pure lab is leaner in body, dosen;t have that chubby lab look once they fill out hes still got size but hes balanced and purfect for trail dog!

    One weakness maybe color, so off white or brown maybe better for you, Maxxis is black so temp maybe an issue where u live!

    It gets hot here too in sumer and cold in winter, probably colder maybe not quite a hot, high 30s C in summer!

    But fear not about pads and things, if you get a pup, then it will be 16months to 2 years before you can run him hard behind a bike!, that does not mean he can;t run etc!

    These things just take time to build up so you don;t do body damage to them when theyre young!

    Pads harden up naturally if you walk them on all surfaces, my boys are hard and hes never bleed, I walk him on sela roads, grass beach I introduced him to everything very young in controlled enviroments and have kept consistency!, He swam very ealry on and is now part fish lol.

    Just take time be sensible, they go through the teribale 2s a bit younger than kids but teaching and training is time no matter the breed, anything else and someis selling you BS.

    THough I have cottoned onto a great new lead for walking it magic and its very good for him, our lead walks are no a pure joy for both of us!

    Feeding is also import, labs and most dogs do not need lots of variety, I feed my dog oure meaty bones, costs me less than $6 bucks a week and the vet hates me no business for them!

    Im not and nver have been a fan of dry foods, ya don;t get that in the wild!

    Remember any dog is 99% wold the rest is domesticated dog, Wolfs don;t get kibble in the wild they don;t get health problems like domestic dogs cause they don't get feed ****, they don;t have obease problems like Domestic humans or dogs!

    Its all very basic, only people **** it up!

    Now do it and it will be the best decision you made, oh and dog should choose you!

    Mine always have an it creates an amazing bond, bit more difficult if many family members, but still they sort it out!

    Good luckand enjoy

    No worris, yeah once ya get to the stage of looking at the dogs either at the breeders or rescuse center there is always one that comes to you thats the one you should choose, in my case Maxxis bumped the rest of the litter out of the way and sat on my foot and sorta said to the rest hes mine now bugga off

    Normally ya should choose the meekiest in the pack as they are the easiest to convert and accpet you as pack leader, mine was the pack leader of the pups, biggest and baddest, thats what I seem to atttract lol hes had his moments of definance, but I have time to spend with him so we work it out, he knows who his leader is but that dosent mean he dosen;t try it on from time to time just to keep me on my toes!

    He will always have the scars his mother gave him as a pup from testing her authority adds character to him!

    Good luck and keep us posted on how it goes, take your time there's no rush best to get whats best for you and them! Its a journey and a buzz for sure!

    These are my two buddys, Bowie the smaller white guy is a maltese shih tzu mix coming up on a year old and Bentley the Golden retriever poodle mix is our newest addition 2 weeks fresh into our family he is only 3.5 months old . They are so great together Bowie makes so much noise when theyre playing while bentley holds it strong. While I got bentley for a trail dog I do plan on bowie tagging along on smaller less demanding rides. Now I just have to wait 8 or 9 more months til hes grown and ready to run! cant wait!

    Here's my trail pup. Today was her first day mountain biking and she had a blast, a perfect trail dog. Met 3 other dogs on the trail, zero issues. She's a rescue, mother was a DSP, father a huskey.

    day 1


    today at 6 months

    So what do you all think about when you see trailhead signs that declare that dogs must be on leash? it seems like many users came to a general consensus that dogs should not be off leash,do you go ahead and break the law?

    Everyone has to weigh the odds and cost of getting caught against the effort to leash and the the value of their dogs well being.

    i've logged hundreds of miles with my 3 dogs. only once have i been cut off and crashed. i'd say odds are pretty good that you can ride a very long time before it happens again

    Yeah, there is that too. That is while almost everyone has mention to train the dog to yield the trail. you, as the leader also have to be aware, on the lookout, and in control. If it is a significant risk, then don't take it. I mean, there is a risk that I might hit someone on the trails. I will have to be careful and deal with that if it happens, but I am going to keep riding.

    the sign posted said no dogs off leash, the dog dodged out from brush and blindsided me,I really encourage all trail users to follow trail etiquette on developed trails,I had animal control pay him a visit after signing a complaint,have not seen him since.

    Here is my little guy, a 9 month old Vizsla, helping me bleed the brakes on my DJ bike. He hasn't been on any trails yet, but he likes getting in the way while I'm working on the bikes and he does real well for short on leash bike rides around the neighborhood.

    Gracie, our Aussie, is up to 13 miles on the trail. When she returns from our local loop of 7 miles, she grabs the ball out of the back of the Honda and is ready for more.

    I want a Dog which easy to train (if that really exist) and since I saw this thread I also want one who can join me on long rides (6 hrs at least), including stops when he (or me) needs it.

    I live in Monterrey, Mexico....during summer we can reach 45C (113F) and during Winter as low as 0C (32F) but when is extremly cold....8C (46.4F) is more commun...

    Am I going right with a lab?



    Thanks!!!
    I love my australian shepherds. They are medium to large, extremely intelligent and teachable with consistency and very durable with energy and stamina. They are herding breed, and they work hours on end at this, so it is in their blood. I have had them all of my life, with a few other breeds by default, and they are by far the best for active lifestyles. No genetic hip issues. My dog drinks from our water bladders, and will dip in a stream or lake to cool off. Most of the herding breeds are a good choice, border collies, cattle dogs, ect. Awesome dogs available thru aussie rescues for a nominal fee. Good Luck

    Great looking vizsla... at 9 months im sure he's a handful. Mine is 15 months old, and he is still driving me nuts! you'll really enjoy him on the trails though!

    New question here. Best/worst Trail Dogs?

    I'm going to get 2 dogs soon. I've always preferred female White Lab/ Golden Retriever mixes.

    Are there any dog "experts" (real experts) out there who know about all the different breeds?

    Which breeds (pure or mixed) make for good running/endurance/obey voice commands trail dogs? I would guess mid-sized, heavy muscled dogs would be the best?

    Which breeds should be avoided (poor trail dogs, poor runners, poor endurance)?

    THIS IS THE BEST THREAD EVER!!!

    If you look around this thread you will see all of these questions asked and answered.

    However, If you are looking for a dog to run with you on the trail, you are looking for a sporting dog, herding dog, nearly any of the working class of dogs.

    This includes your Cattle Dogs, Collies (of all sorts, border, Australian etc.) Labs, Goldens are okay but keep in mind they are VERY high risk of hip problems due to overbreeding, Dobermans, Jack Russels (if you can handle the craziness in the house) Vizsla, various "pointers" and spaniels, Shepards of all kinds, Huskies (as long as you dont live in hot climate). I mean the list goes on and on, you want to stay clear of dogs like Danes, or Rottys, anything where bloat will be an issue, typically larger dogs. And your dog should NEVER run on a full stomach (nor an empty one)

    If you have more specific questions feel free to PM me I am a certified CGC (canine good citizen) trainer as well as a MSAR (Maine Search And Rescue) dog trainer/handler.

    I'd go further, and say that most shelter dogs - especially medium sized, high-energy mixes will do pretty well too.

    I'm biased, though, we have two.

    White and Brown is Stella the Heinz 57 (Pitty? Jack Russell terrier? Cattle dog? Hound?)

    Black and Brown is Tessa - Cattle Dog/ Border Collie (We think.)

    Pink Baron and playpunk raise some good points.

    Other thing to remember with breeds re over breeding or issues with joints breathing and many other problems this is not overcome just by breed!

    This is happening a lot more now imo due to breeding quality, this can mean many things, in breeding which is basically what pure breeding is and leads to many conditions, breeders and I do not tar all with this brush kill off perfectly good pups because an ear does not stand properly or has a marking or some what they perceive as an imperfection, this type of breeding is leading to more physical issues!

    I choose a mixed and wanted a mixed breed lab x and took into account the dogs father and mothers traits, I hope it works out for the long term, hes looking great an is a great dog sometimes too much spirit but that's what I wanted its a trait I look for in animals and people..

    Also from a pup you need to take time with them not over do it so you protect there joints until they are mature, this is a balance, always let the dog tell you when enough is enough, so don't over run them too hard by a bike as a pup its too easy to wear them down they will always want to please.

    And most importantly, something I have a pet peave with Vets, and not discussed enough is Diet!

    America is a drug over induced country, on humans and in animals, in fact we are no better, but I'd not a fan of dry foods ok in small amounts minimum once a day but I prefer a couple of times a week rest of the time, I give my dogs raw meaty bones.

    Owning a Dog is not expensive, people make money out of this bull, they have vested interests, I constantly get told how god my dog is how shiny his coat is, my vet even told me not to bother coming back except for yearly check up.

    Dogs are mostly wolf they don;t get feed nutz and cooked dinners in the wild, they feed off all sorts of things hence why they scavenge at home if you let them, its part of there genes! Don't reprimand them for this its natural, dogs are dogs they are not Humans so don't treat them like one and I'll bet cha his life he will be healthy.

    A friend recently had to put down his 7month old Bull Terrier I hate hearing this, [pure breed] its so unnecessary, Bull Dogs cannot give natural birth there bodies are so over developed cause of in breeding to get a certain look they have head and neck issues, breathing issues, another friend even told me his Bull Dog has allergies and can;t go outside WTF this is just not natural.

    So look at your feed, my dog costs me less than $6 a week and he gets well fed looked after and is happy, a dog chewing a bone for an hour gets a lot of exercise, a dog having a happy meal in 2 seconds is never happy es missing out, raw chicken and wings, chicken necks when they're pups is a good way to introduce em to bones, this also hardens up there teeth and keeps them clean another trait my dog has, and he doesn't smell except when he farts sometimes lol which is funny as hell as hes almost embarrassed by it.

    Anyways do ya research, look hard at the breeder or owner, I also like the option of the dog recovery places where dogs are dumped or have been found and are looked after, people who do this make me sick dumping dogs, they probably have children what does that say.

    Get a dog and have a friend for life, I couldn't imagine life without mine now

    I agree with everything sides this bit here. Not only do chicken bones (cooked OR raw) splinter, but raw chicken carries and spreads e-coli. Not only do you not want your pup getting sick and splintered, but you dont want them spreading raw chicken around your house, as it puts you and your family at risk.

    Never ever feed a dog poultry of any sorts. And yes I understand that wild dogs hunt and eat birds all the time, but they have also built up immunities to such ilnesses that our dogs through domestication have lost.

    I feed my dogs beef and ham bones regularly, be careful with cooked bones as it too splinters in rather large chunks, my ACD had an issue with a cooked ham bone someone else had given him while I was not home (I was not pleased with my husband for allowing it) he got very sick from it, and ended up puncturing his upper intestine requiring repair.

    That also being said, I do feed my high content wolf hybrids whole raw chicken (outside) but they being direct descendants from wild dogs will not get sick from it, and their intestines and stomach are stronger as to handle the splinters better.

    PB ya right, I don;t feed him often but I like to provide some nutrient variety, I hear what ya saying and maybe not the bet thing to add for US, i buy mine through a raw butcher Dog food outlet, that has dogs, not often as cost me more in one meal than a weeks worth of dog bones

    That said I hear the splinter thing all the time for small dogs maybe, but dogs here or in my experience, big dogs, and I like a big dog, mine never leaves anything behind, yep I have to clean up the bigger bones around the yard but they are meat bones, and good for the garden, bury em deep they break down for good soil additives over time.

    and ya right probably domestic dogs have lost some immunity, a problem for Humans as well, why cancer is now number one, but this is related to food source, dogs are no different, only getting back to nutrition natural food sources will solve this or it will become a much bigger problem for them and us

    WEll sure from your personal experience you have never had an issue, how about the over 100 dogs that we see daily at the shelters and I get calls on who have had issues with not only splinters from poultry but also from illness from raw poultry. You know if it works for you by all means keep doing it, but dont suggest it to people when the majority says its not okay, and there are far more issues with it than benefits. And no its not only small dogs, I have had to help remove a lodged chicken bone from a rottweilers throat I wouldnt consider them a small dog breed.

    And dont think Turkey is any better, break a turkey/chicken bone in half (which is how most all dogs eat bones) and feel how sharp the edge is

    Fair call, but think if ya read my statement correctly I was not saying it as main, I mean dogs like children need to be introduced to any food source gradually and with some common sense, problem with this is people are being conditioned, chicken bones are soft compared to big bones sure I can understand some may hand dogs are suffering because of it.. If there is a e-coli then that only confirms what I'm saying yet people are eating it .

    Its building up and using common sense something that people are lacking more and more because of this nanny state, take a pill take a drug, have some more nutz with all the nutrients in one meal in there, its basic stuff, but what ever, proper education still keeps Vets and other practices in business without hand holding, its like children who are now allergic to vegetables give me a break!

    If ya can't look after a dog then first off it should be questioned whether you should have one! common sense or is that too much in the most advanced age of human history we are now so dumb, interesting that America is now one of the most malnutrition countries in the world and other western countries following fast yet most over fed, we eat more yet the food source is contaminated, and lacking nutritional value even foods like vegetables we think are healthy and dogs are no different. they are being fed this rubbish.

    An old saying look at the dog it reflects the owner.

    I just don't buy it, Ive read books from vets who question this.. Ian Billinghurst a vet wrote a very good book on diet, give your dog a bone..Basic's 101..

    I don;t doubt what you're saying but good education and info is what people need to understand and question ya food sources is all Im saying if ya have doubts.

    Dogs deserve the best as well.

    Qoute everything next time not just what you want out of context thanks..

    I am taking nothing at all out of context, I am simply quoting only bits because it saves space in an already cluttered thread.. I did no switch what you said around, I just picked specific points of yours that I disagreed with. and still do. my point is... what works for you works for you, sure fine, but DO NOT tell people that its perfectly okay to do something without informing them of the inherent risks of doing said thing... and yes humans are eating chicken... cooked, not sure if you know anything about cooking but the heat tends to kill off any disease that is born and living on the food.. that is why we say cook your pork and poultry thoroughly as they are both very good homes to such bacterium. It is also common knowledge that COOKED chicken bones (and yes I know you are saying that raw is better) splinter like mad. So my point is... chicken in general= no no. Keep doing it, I really dont care that isnt my argument, and I was certainly not making this political " the whole healthcare system is corrupt" debate, because this is a debate about what is and what is not good for EVERYONES dogs.



    oh, I quoted the whole thing, happy?

    Of course.
    If your looking for a good breeder you may not like the answer.

    She is a rescue. We got her at one of those PetsMart rescue days. There were about 30 dogs and about 100 people looking. She was 4 months old at the time, very thin, skiddish, pooped in her cage and chased her tail constantly. Apparently ACD's are not common in NJ because not a single person showed interest in her during the 4 hours we spent trying to decide, talk to the foster, and go through the adoption process.

    I asked because my ACD is a year old tomorrow too.

    And I loved that answer, some people dont know what they are getting into when getting a high energy dog, and no dog should go homeless because of it. I love seeing people with rescues. It is what I do, we have 7 dogs all but 2 are rescues, (my ACD came from my friend who breeds and ships them all over the country, which is why I asked, but they screen each buyer heavily, and they make their buyers promise that if the dog is ever going to be put up for adoption to just send it back to them, and they will find a new home for them, so I doubt this one came from them, but you never know)

    Any idea where she came from?

    That's awesome. We've contemplated getting another one, if we do I'll have to get their information from you.

    From what we were told she came from Georgia. She was either born with a stump tail or someone cropped it. She's on the small side for a female. The last time she was weighed she was 30 lbs. I don't expect her to get much bigger. From her markings, Bentley mark, tanning and practically perfect mottling of black, grey and white, I would bet that she's full blooded. Well, as full as and ACD can be

    She is my second ACD. I had a Red Heeler back in TX. I've owned a Lab, Great Dane, Pit Bull, Mutt and Belgian Malinois over the years and my absolute favorites were the Mutt and ACD.

    I recommend them to anyone that is active and wants an incredibly smart and loyal companion.

    I agree with the sentiments about ACD's. And you can check out their website if you want. Koda Ranch

    And she is most definitely pure ACD, she is gorgeous, the breed standard is only 40 lbs anyhow. And poor docked tail I love the big bushy tails haha.

    Just did about 10 miles in the fresh powder with my cattle dog and our doby, we broke trail the whole way, was a blast, my new pugs is drying off in the mudroom and my pup is chewing contentedly on his bone. the Doby is conked out on the couch with the husband.

    Here's a few of Pepper in her first snow. She loved it!
    We only went a few miles, but she was pretty wore out

    They are great shots, though seeing 'em in the snow looks weird to me (doesn't snow much around here). Yeah, all these Aussie dogs fills me with pride. They're energetic, hardy, stoic, loving, deeply loyal doggies. Glad to see you guys appreciate 'em. Most Australians live in the major coastal cities and have designer Pugs or Labradoodles (you know what I mean) these days.

    My Zoey. Loves anything outside, so naturally loves her some trails. Been going on neighborhood rides, night rides at the local trails when there are less people, and then a couple of rides up to the Pinhoti trail where there are no other people

    That indeed is a cool picture, she looks like a pit mix, just like my Joules, except different colors!

    Gorgeous pooch! The younger pup has been on XC ski duty this winter, taking advantage of the soft snow. She is looking forward to Fall mountain biking, even though she doesn't know it yet.

    Same here none of the trails around here allow dogs not on a leash. We have a lab & I wish I could take her. Sadly I can only take her on hikes.
