Our sweaters are hand-knit and 100% wool. The dyes we use for our wool come from plants and are natural. The sheep who provide the wool live great lives and are mostly free range. Because our natural wool is not treated with chemicals they are both warm and dogs love them on their bodies.

* No wasteful, useless plastic packaging, ever.
* No electricity is used to knit our sweaters.

Small things do make a difference.

Chilly Dog Sweaters is the original Eco -friendy hand-knit dog sweaters.

Reader Request: Chick Update!

You asked, so here they are, more chicken photos!

Last week we introduced them to their new coop. Around the coop is an enclosed pen, but we have to keep a watchful eye out for hawks while they are in the enclosure. I have already spotted a Cooper’s hawk swooping into our yard trying to get to the chickens (luckily they were in the coop at the time and safe). For this purpose, we bought a fake owl. Yes, an owl. Can’t miss it, it is like they Eye of Sauron! ;) Check this thing out:


They are supposed to deter hawks, as long as I keep moving it around every few days so the hawk doesn’t figure out it isn’t real.

The chickens are loving their new home! At night we cover the coop with a blanket for warmth, though since it is summer here it doesn’t get that cold at night.

When we are outside, we let them free range and they love to eat the bugs in the yard and slurp up blades of grass like spaghetti! I am hoping they eat all the nasty spiders.

Well, I won’t make you wait any longer- here is a gallery of the chickens, they are getting BIG though they still chirp like babies ;) Click on the first thumbnail to view the whole gallery.

Can I Train My Dog to Protect My House and Play with Dogs and People Outside?

He is a 2 year old male German shepherd, and he is very playful both inside and outside, but here's the problem – He doesn't really bark at strangers (unless they have dogs with them) and tends to pull the leash when I walk him near other dogs, so I'm afraid to let him loose in the dog park…

Anyway my question is can I train him to be friendly to other dogs and people but still protect my house from potential thieves by barking instead of licking them to death?

Suggestion:

Its unusual for a male gsd not to be at least a bit territorial on his own property. But some lines of the gsd can be slow to mature and don`t start to bark at strangers until 2 and a half years old. Your gsd is obviously quite a confident natured dog if he is friendly to people and other dogs which is better than having a gsd who is afraid and nervous of people.
Even so, no dog however much it barks is going to 100% protect your house against intruders without specialised training which is quite costly. The mere presence of a gsd will in most cases be enough to deter most thieves.
You could try and contact a professional ppd trainer who can assess your dogs temperament and advise you if the dog has a suitable temperament to be trained to protect. This does not come cheap. Do not attempt this yourself as you could ruin your dog for life.
Firstly though, it would help if you enrolled in a good dog obedience club as basic training is the foundations to all other types of training and needs to be done first.
Hope this helps a bit.
