My last post was about dog on dog aggression, and how dog types (and thus instinct patterns) play in that. Part of that conversation was about dog body language, and one reply provided a link to a lecture on current scientific findings in that field. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqGM...list=WL&t=650s

Pit bulls, dog aggression, and instinct: a conversation

Posted 12-26-2018 at 07:57 PM by hiero2

Tue Dec-25-2018

Loc8tor vs Whistle vs Findster Duo: FINDING your lost pet

{Since I hate undated reviews! Fri Nov-03-2017}

I've had conversations with my neighbors on the topic of GPS petfinder devices. I have now owned and used 3 brands, and this is a short review and comparison of the three. The brands I've owned? Loc8tor (two types), Whistle, and Findster Duo.
