I'm just starting a tumblr and asking off…

I'm just starting a tumblr and asking off anon would probably feel the same to people because my blog is empty and creepy. I follow some dogblr people and you seem neato and I saw the post asking for asks. How did you start your tumblr and dog training? I've been isolated a long time and feel behind and lost in anything other than facebook.

I actually hardly remember how I started my blog. I think I just saw some people who had their entire blogs about their dogs (actually I think it might have been @huskyhuddle) and I was like hey I have two dogs (at the time) and that seems cool so I just… did. I’d had a personal blog for a while before that.

I’d been interested in dog training for a while and I started volunteering for the service dog org that bred Fable when I was… 13, I believe. That’s when I really started getting exposed to more extensive dog training. I’ve still got a lot to learn.

As for how to make friends, like literally just talk to people. Yes, I have social anxiety and yes it is hard, but people here really like to talk about their dogs. You can just start chatting with them. And yes you’ll definitely run into disagreements and maybe some not so nice people, but you’ll also have quite a bit of fun and you’ll get to talk about your dog or dogs in general which is awesome.

What is your favorite poodle size, and how do you fell about doodles?

Standards, by far. No hate to toys and minis but I like bigger, more solid dogs.

Doodles, well. To me, I really only see a purpose in breeding doodles for the actual reason they were created: as service dogs. Since they’re typically bigger than poodles, it would make sense for someone who has allergies or an aversion to shedding hair (me!) to want a doodle if they need mobility and don’t want to stress about a poodle getting big enough. Of course, since their hair is sort of a questionmark, it’s not absolutely certain they won’t effect people with allergies, or that they won’t shed. That’s something that needs to be tested after the litter is born.

Other than that, I have to say I don’t see much of a point to them. The traits people seem to want them for are just… poodle traits. People basically want doodles for the non-shedding coat and the smarts of a poodle but with the happiness of a lab or a golden or whatever and like okay but Fable wiggles his entire body when he’s happy to see people and he can easily clear a coffee table with his tail so there you go.

I just don’t really understand them I guess.

Hi there! I was wondering what you think of yo…

Hi there! I was wondering what you think of your YupCollars y-front harness? I'm in the market for a mobility harness, and heavily leaning towards Yup, but I feel like most handlers use their straight-front harnesses so I've had trouble getting an opinion from anyone with a y-front. 💜

I really like it. My only potential complaint with it is it might be too hot for our summers here, what with the black leather and the sheep skin lining, and with Fable having a lot of hair anyways. 

That said, it’s super high quality leather, very lightweight, and doesn’t restrict any of Fable’s shoulder movement; this is a common complaint about people who dislike the straight-front vests or harnesses. I do have a straight-front vest for Fable but I generally prefer y-front as a basic rule. My problem with a lot of the non-Yupcollars y-front harness makers is that their harnesses seem to impede shoulder movement even despite being a y-front design (though to a much lesser extent) which then I have to go… what’s the point?

If you want other, non-Yupcollars opinions as well, @powerfulexistance has one of the harnesses I’m talking about. But I really like my Yupcollars harness so far.

Would you say that you have oodles of poodles?…
