Answer by snowy
Living on a lot of ground does not preclude a fence. In fact it would make it even more reasonable to have a fence so you can keep the dog nearby where you can keep an eye on her. If you don’t want a visible fence, they make invisible fences with collars that keep the dog in. However, some dogs learn to run really fast so they don’t have to feel the effects of the collar for long. If you refuse any sort of fence, your only option is a leash, especially with an independent breed like a pug.

What is the meaning of the IWHBYD skull in Halo 3?

Question by psychoxxsquirrel: What is the meaning of the IWHBYD skull in Halo 3?
I know it stands for “I would have been your daddy”, and I know that it unlocks hidden dialog, but what is the purpose of its name? Is it supposed to fit with its description “But a dog beat me over the fence”? I just can’t figure it out….

Q&A: Why are some people insane animal lovers?

Question by crf450ish: Why are some people insane animal lovers?
There IS a noticeable difference between your typical average animal lover and someone who is literally mentally unbalanced to the point where they perceive animals as human beings. For example my mothers old friend (old as in no longer friends) has/had 4 large breed dogs that were always in the house. They took priority in this ladys life. As well as her other animals outside. Once I asked why she chooses to deal with the pain in the butt that comes with having large dogs inside and she immediately took offense to my question and started getting defensive as if I threatened the lives of the dogs. I dropped the subject quickly and went outside to get away. Another reason I ask is because I see so many people that think its cruel to discipline animals or to train them with force. By force I mean an electric training collar on a dog or a muzzle on a dog or tying a horse to a post with a lead rope to let it get used to be tied up without a human next to it etc etc. it’s almost like these people believe that not allowing animals to do whatever they want when they want is a crime and that the human that commits this said crime should like receive the death penalty. Anytime you view a video on YouTube about how to use any kind of “forceful” training method rather it be an electric dog collar or what have you, the comments section is a neverending stream of “people who use these should die” “dog killers” “lets train your kids not to wet the bed with a shock collar” etc. Were these people deprived of something as children that would cause them to react and act this way when it comes to animals? Now before the yahoo answers world starts to go nuts on me allow me to clarify, I am in no way condoning animal cruelty nor do I agree with all methods of training of animals. I am simply seeking understanding as to why some people go overboard with this. Thank you.
Jazmin s- I’m not saying its a bad thing to have a soft spot for animals. No offense but your answer didn’t have anything to do with my question. You basically explained yourself and then defended your explanation.

Shasta Cascade Offers an Alternative for Northern California Winter Travel – Less Traffic, Cost Savings and Lots of Fun

Shasta Cascade Offers an Alternative for Northern California Winter Travel – Less Traffic, Cost Savings and Lots of Fun











Mt Shasta Ski Park


Redding, CA (PRWEB) February 04, 2013

Northern California skiers, snowboarders and outdoor enthusiasts are avoiding travel delays and aggravation by heading to the Cascades for their winter getaways.

Several recreational options are available in the Shasta Cascade, often reached without traffic delays or passes to cross. Mt Shasta Ski Park is so confident of its dependable access that it posts four CalTRANS webcams showing road conditions on nearby Interstate 5 and Hwy 89 (http://www.skipark.com).

Marketing Director Jim Mullins said, “We are what Tahoe used to be, but with Mt. Shasta vibe. The Ski Park has 32 runs, nearly 1,500 feet of vertical and no lift lines. From the Bay Area, it takes about the same driving time as to Tahoe, but without the traffic. On a holiday weekend or when it’s snowing, getting here is much easier and takes less time. Plus, Mt. Shasta Ski Park is affordable. An all-day adult lift ticket is just $ 44, $ 29 midweek. Kids ski for $ 25 and pups and seniors pay just $ 9.”

At nearby Ski Bowl Trailhead, Dog Sled Express provides an 8.4-mile tour by dog team. During hookup, the dogs bark and jump in excitement, but once on the trail, it’s all business and quiet, as passengers get to experience the power and grace of a dog team hauling a sled, as its musher shouts commands. The one-hour ride is $ 95/ adult and $ 55/child (http://www.dogsledexpress.com).

The Shasta Cascade region has over 437 miles of trails at 12 major snowmobiling areas. Snowmobiles can be rented at Deer Mountain Snowmobile Park, 10 miles north of Weed, for from $ 65 an hour to $ 250 a day (http://www.funfactoryrentals.com). From there, explore miles of trails that link with other area trails.

Lassen Volcanic National Park, northeast of Chico, offers free, ranger-guided, 2-hour snowshoe walks ($ 1 Donation requested – 8 years and up) on weekend days starting at 1:30 p.m. For those with their own snowshoes, eight major snowshoe routes can be experienced within the national park and many more are found throughout the region. Several lead to fascinating geological sites, made all the more interesting in winter (http://www.nps.gov/lavo).

Excellent sledding hills are found near the Kohm Yah-mah-nee Visitor Center inside Lassen Volcanic, within Shasta National Forest at Eskimo Hill on Hwy 44 near the park’s north entrance, and at Snowman’s Hill on Hwy 89, west of McCloud. Backcountry skiing, snowboarding and winter backpacking also occur at Lassen Volcanic and in surrounding national forests.

The Fly Shop in Redding reports great fly fishing all winter long, especially steelhead on the Trinity River and trophy rainbow trout on the Lower Sacramento River in Redding. Favorite winter trout hotspots include Baum Lake, Lewiston Lake, Iron Canyon Reservoir and Shasta Lake (http://www.theflyshop.com). All of these fisheries are open all winter.

Local anglers recommend Lake Davis and Frenchman’s Lake for ice fishing, where worms and powerbait attract the trout. Ice skating has now moved to naturally frozen, snow-free ponds, as the scenic Siskiyou Ice Rink at Shastina Park in the town of Mt Shasta was open this year only through the first week of January.

Redding is a central and economical place from which base a winter getaway in the area. Numerous accommodations can also be found along Interstate 5, a major transportation corridor between California and the northwest.

For over 80 years, the Shasta Cascade Wonderland Association has provided visitor information to travelers visiting northeast California. More travel planning information is found at http://www.visitredding.com and http://www.shastacascade.org.

Question by Tanga: Should I keep the Invisible Fence collar on all the time?
My dog hates it but my ma says it should stay on all the time, but I don’t think she really knows. We already have another collar anyway!

Best answer:

Answer by gentlegiants
My big guy has an invisible fence. It gives him freedom to explore his yard, chase bugs and dig chipmunk holes! He loves his “big boy collar”. I only use it when he’s going outside in the yard. He has been trained to know where the boundaries are and respects them even without the collar. He sees groundhogs, deer, squirrels, cats, guinnea hens, etc. everyday and will only chase as far as he knows the boundaries are. The invisible fence is a great tool if the dog is properly trained to know the boundaries. He sees his “big boy now” collar and does his Saint Bernard happy dance because it means freedom to him. Train, train, train!
