    it's not working!
  3. New puppies in town

  4. Hello, this topic is for Romanian Presa Canario Breeders wich are the best in world in breed bloodlines and dog shows, we whait for you to post here each and every one who breed presa canario!
  5. Welcome to the Dog Forum at DogForum.com! This is a community for dog lovers to discuss all aspects of dog ownership and care, ask and answer dog related questions, share pictures, stories, and news about man's (and woman's) best friend, and more! We're passionate about our dogs, and know others are too. The rules below are in place to help keep DogForum.com a friendly place that is welcoming and respectful of differing opinions. Please keep them in mind when posting. Thanks, The Dog Forum Team 1) Be nice. If you can't be nice, be civil. If you can't be civil, please don't post. Even if you disagree with another member, you can express your opinion in a way that won't cause hard feelings. Please do so. If somebody doesn't follow this rule and is mean or insulting, please notify a moderator and the moderator will address the issue. 2) Do not use bad language. This is a family friendly website, so if you don't hear it on network tv, don't use it on the forum. Excessive use of inflammatory language will result in disciplinary action. 3) Keep threads on topic. Please keep the original poster's purpose for starting a thread in mind when posting in it. While it is natural for the topic of conversation to stray somewhat as threads evolve, please do not make posts that effectively steer a thread in a new and unrelated direction. Instead, please feel free to start a new thread where you can discuss the different topic. 4) Please use proper language when posting. Entire posts using baby-talk, text-speak, dog-speak (speaking from the dog's point of view,) or otherwise deliberately made difficult to understand, create confusion and detract from the wealth of knowledge and advice shared by the community. We have no intention of becoming the grammar police, and we do recognize that our diverse community is made up of members from all across the globe, who may not use English as their first language. No one who is trying to communicate and express themselves clearly will be penalized. Additionally, threads that are designated for such posts (usually found in the "Off-topic" and "Fun and Games" forums,) are still allowed, as are occasional comments when in the appropriate context. 5) Let the moderators do the moderating. Please utilize the Report Posts feature to alert the moderators of issues rather than attempting to address issues yourself. Members are very unlikely to change their behavior because of anything another member says to them, and attempts to confront other members typically only exacerbate an issue. Please leave it to the moderators to address other members' behavior. Because moderators have the ability to restrict members' access to the site, moderators can often get through to a member when other members can't. Please feel free to pm a moderator for help at any time. On a similar note, moderators' actions are the result of careful deliberation by at least one moderator, and often the entire team. If you disagree with the way an issue was handled, please pm a moderator so that we can explore your concerns and see if there are ways to handle similar issues differently in the future. Please do not make posts that merely serve to criticize the team, as that is only counterproductive and is subject to removal. 6) Do not make unauthorized advertisements. Many people have sought to leverage the effort that has made this community what it is to drive traffic to their own websites. If we allowed every person who came here to promote their website to do so, this place would consist of nothing but links to other sites that only served to divert our visitors. If you are interested in advertising here, please contact us. Otherwise, advertisements will be removed. 7) Do not discuss inappropriate subject matter. Certain things simply don't belong on the Dog Forum, such as posts promoting dog fighting, discussing illicit drug use, pornography, etc. Please keep the family friendly nature of this community in mind when posting. 8) Do not try to give away your dog. While we empathize with people who need to find new homes for their pets, the Dog Forum is not the place for it. There are rescue groups and other organizations that exist for the purpose of facilitating such things, and for the sake of your dog you should consult with them. Posts trying to re-home or sell dogs to Dog Forum members will be removed. 9) Do not ask for money. While we feel for dogs in need, we unfortunately cannot allow members to solicit donations from other members because there is no way to confirm that the money requested is being used for a legitimate purpose, and we do not want to see well intentioned members manipulated into sending their money to people with ill intentions. If you need help with your pet, there are a number of organizations that exist for that purpose and we encourage you to investigate them. 10) Do not promote or link to other forums or social networks here. 11) No Multiple, Shared, or Alter-Ego Accounts. Each member is permitted to have only one account (and thus username) on dogforum.com except in the rare case of irretrievable log-in info, leaving the older account inactive. If a member is found to have and be using multiple accounts, the member's original account and some or all of the additional accounts may be banned at the moderators' discretion. Members also may not share an account/username. Friends/family members must make their own account and username if they wish to participate. Members may not create multiple or fake identities or personas. 12) Animal Abuse and Neglect. DogForum.com does not, in any way, condone or accept the abuse, mistreatment, or neglect of any living animal. All animals deserve humane treatment/training, proper housing and hygiene, training, and vet care. If it is brought to our attention that an animal may be being abused, mistreated, or neglected by a member, and the member does not act to resolve the issue, it may result in a ban from the forum. 13) Respect the forum's posting guidelines regarding training methods. DogForum.com promotes a force free training philosophy based on learning theory and scientific research. We also promote educated debate on training methods. It is ok to discuss the merits of different training equipment as well as techniques, but it is NOT ok to promote or suggest any training equipment or technique that uses fear, pain, intimidation or is based in positive punishment ("P+"of the 4 quadrants). Please refer to "Forum rules and guidelines: TRAINING & BEHAVIOR, Please Read BEFORE Posting!" for more information. 14) The forum is not a replacement for a veterinarian. The forum can be a great place to discuss tips or look for support but it is not a replacement for a veterinarian. Only a vet can diagnose and prescribe medications for your pet. Not only are very few members actually qualified to do so, but doing so over the internet without seeing the animal in person is unsafe. Members please do not diagnose or prescribe via the forum. For safety and legality reasons people need to be going to a veterinarian. Members - READ BEFORE POSTING IN HEALTH 15) Surveys will be allowed at the discretion of the moderators. 16) Please keep politics off of the forum. Due to the current political climate, we ask that members refrain from posting political articles, threads, posts, and comments. Political Posts - PLEASE READ!!!!!!!!!!!! The forum is taking a break from political posts for awhile, maybe indefinitely. Politics are a touchy subject to begin with and we're seeing an increase in arguments with all of the political posts. If you do want to discuss politics, Facebook is great for that! I'm sure there are political... www.dogs-forum.com Please note that posts may be edited or removed if they violate the above rules. New to the Dogs- Forum? Please Read!!! Forum rules and guidelines: TRAINING & BEHAVIOR, Please Read BEFORE Posting! Dogs-Forum Infraction Policy
  6. Due to the increased frequency in incidents on the forum over the last month, we (the Dogs-Forum.com Team) have been discussing how to handle the situation. We have decided to put into effect a policy clearly laying out the consequences for breaking our forum rules. To view our forum rules: http://www.dogs-forum - pagina reguli The policy is as follows: -Spam and trolling can result in an immediate and permanent ban. -Other rule violations will result in an infraction and warning via PM. -Upon receiving a second infraction, a member may also be given a temporary ban lasting 1 week along with a final warning. -Should a member break the rules a third time, then he or she may be banned permanently! -We do reserve the right to ban without warning for any offense we deem deserving of such a consequence. Such situations are rare but can and do happen. These are typically due to (but not limited to) vulgarity, extremely inflammatory or argumentative posts, or the creation of multiple user accounts. We are aware that many of you are quite concerned about the actions of others. While we do understand the concern, everyone should be aware that another member's actions are not an excuse or justification to behave badly in response. In addition, a member giving advice that you don't want or don't agree with is NOT against the rules, it's part of how this process works. However, anything considered harmful or dangerous by a moderator, or that otherwise breaks our forum rules, is subject to removal! We would like to remind everyone to use the report feature to notify us of an issue. All members are also welcome to PM to a Dogs-Forum.com Team Member or post in the "Talk to the Team" section to privately discuss issues on the forum with us. These are far better options than posting snide comments, arguing, or sending PM's badmouthing other forum members. Please also know that once a Team Member steps in to stop an argument, all are expected to do exactly as asked. Any problems or concerns (with the action/decision of a Team Member, with another member, etc.) are to be handled by PMing a Dog Forum Team Member or posting in the "Talk to the Team" section of the forum, NOT on the open board. This is not negotiable. We are aware that this new policy may seem harsh, especially to our regular and long time members but please know that we have not made this decision lightly. A great deal of time, thought, and discussion has gone into this new policy. It is our hope that the result will be a much friendlier forum that all can enjoy!
  7. Forum rules and guidelines: TRAINING & BEHAVIOR, Please Read BEFORE Posting! This Post is to remind our members that this forum is a PR/non-aversive/non-compulsion forum. It is perfectly acceptable to DISCUSS different training methods when not directed as advice to a training/behavior question . It is NOTacceptable to recommend, any training method/tool/technique that relies on Fear/intimidation/pain/force on this forum. The Dogs-forum team reserves the right to make judgment calls as to what is harmful. Generally prohibited advice/tools include, but is not limited to: poking, smacking/hitting, leash jerks or tugs, pushing, stern verbal corrections, grabbing muzzles, pinching gums/tongue/mouth/ears, stepping on paws, spray bottles, air horns, penny cans, chains in bags, shock collars, prong collars, choke collars, flooding, alpha rolling, and "invisible" electric fences. ANYONE CONTINUING TO ADVISE SUCH METHODS WILL BE SUBJECT TO DISCIPLINE, AS SEEN FIT, BY THE DOG FORUM TEAM. PLEASE SEE: The Dog Forum Rules The Dog Forum Infraction Policy When posting in the behavior section, please remember that all advice given is for general guideline purposes only and it's up to you, the dog's owner, to assess whether you are capable of fixing the behavior issues at home through consistent training, or if you are 'over your head' and should consult with a professional trainer or behaviorist. The Dog Forum team reserves the right to make judgment calls as to what is harmful advice.Physically aversive methods should not be recommended on an internet forum. If your dog’s behavior has escalated to the point of biting and drawing blood, the internet is not where you should be.It is the responsibility of the dog owner to prevent bites from happening and should your dog bite someone else you could be held civilly ($) and criminally (jail) responsible, and your dog may be euthanized. It is for the seriousness surrounding dog bites that we, The Dog Forum Team, will again make a judgment call and may close/remove/edit a thread once your dog has bitten someone, even yourself. Home interventions may have worked before the bite, but it is the general consensus that you find a professional trainer and/or behaviorist to help you solve the problem-BEFORE someone gets seriously hurt.
  8. Here are our Dogs-Forum.com Rules and Policies. Forum Rules Tone of Posts: We strive to keep Dogs-Forum.com a friendly and helpful place. We do not allow 'flaming', fighting, excessive cursing/vulgar language, rudeness, or name calling. Keep posts friendly and polite! Members will not always agree with you, just as you will not always agree with them. It is not rude for one member to disagree with another. Disagreements are inevitable when members come from many different walks of life. However, we do expect that disagreements remain civil. After all, we are all capable of disagreeing with another person in a respectful manner. Keep in mind that if you choose to respond to a post that breaks forum rules and also break a rule yourself then you are just as guilty as the member you responded to! Expressing opinions is fine, but do keep in mind that an opinion is not the same as a fact. Be prepared to back up any claims you make with reliable references. Do not get offended if someone asks for proof of something you state as fact. It is not rude for one member to disagree with another member's opinion or ask for proof of an opinion that has been stated as fact. Remember it can be hard to interpret tone of written words so please use your emoticons to help clarify when you need to! :thumbsup: Also, keep in mind how difficult tone can be to interpret as you read other members' posts. Participating in online forums does require posters to not be overly sensitive. Please do not read too much into comments and when in doubt please politely ask for clarification or report the post so that the mods can handle it. Do not get upset if a Dogs-Forum.com Team Member (aka Moderator) addresses a post that violates the rules within a thread. We do often PM however we are not obligated to. It is not uncommon in heated or fast moving discussions for a mod to just quote and address the issue right then and there. Letting people know that they broke forum rules and also telling them what we expect is part of our job. If you do not want to take the chance of being called out for your behavior on the open forum, then do not behave badly and break forum rules in the first place. Sharing Concerns and Reporting Posts: Should you feel that someone has broken our forum rules or have a concern with a thread/post then please click on the in the lower right of the post, fill out the simple form, and send it to alert the Dogs-Forum.com Team of the situation. We generally are able to address issues quite quickly, however there may be times when no mods are online so please be patient. We will address it as soon as we are able. Should you have a concern about a member, an incident, the forum, etc. then please create a thread in the Talk to the Team section of the forum. Only you and the Dogs-Forum.com Team Members (Administrator included) will be able to view the thread. http://www.Dogs-Forum.com/talk-team/ You may also PM any Moderator or place a Visitor's Message on our profile pages. New members, you will need a minimum of 5 posts to be able to send a PM but you should be able to post a Visitor's message. If you are wondering who the Dogs-Forum.com Leaders are click here: Dogs-Forum.com - Show Groups Forum Etiquette: Please do not post the same message in more then one thread or even more than once in the same thread as this makes things confusing for everyone. Please do not "bump" your threads up in the list just to get it more attention/views/answers. Please start one and only one thread to discuss a topic. If you refer to an old thread within a post, please link to it. There are many members here, many of whom will not be familiar with the old thread you referred to. Linking to the old thread within your post helps to facilitate clear communication. Please be mindful of reviving old threads. It is perfectly OK to revive certain threads such as a forum game. However, if you are asking a question or sharing that you are having a similar experience then it would most likely be best to create your own thread or PM the member you are hoping to speak to. Keep in mind that when a Moderator or member points out the date of a thread and/or that a member has not been on for quite some time they are only trying to help. Also be mindful when a moderator jumps in a thread and points out forum rules or makes a request. This is often done in large colorful text. The Dog Forum Team reserves the right to edit or remove any post or thread that violates a forum rule or ignores a request given by a moderator. While a PM is often sent, we are not obligated to do so. We do often place a reason for editing which can be read below the post, but again we are not obligated to do so. If a post has been edited or removed, it has broken the rules plain and simple. Technical: Trouble inserting pictures? Just copy and paste! Or use an a site like photobucket.com and insert via their instructions. Odds and Ends: Please be mindful of personal information you put on the internet (on any site). We do not edit or remove threads or posts unless they violate forum rules so information you post here could stay for many years or possibly longer. Threads/posts are kept so others can learn from similar situations. If you do not want others to know something, please do not put it on our site, or the internet in general. And last but not least, do not threaten to leave the forum because of a disagreement or a thread not going the way you would have liked. If you do so, do not be surprised if the Dog Forum Team makes your decision to leave permanent.

  10. We're often asked by new members how to post a question or start a new thread. If you've been wondering the same, don't worry, you're in good company. The Dogs-Forum is divided into different discussion areas called "forums". You can see the different forums available from our home page, The Dogs-Forum - A friendly online community for dog lovers. When you click the link for the forum you'd like to ask your question/start your new thread in, you'll see a list of existing discussions, or "threads", in that forum. Above the list, you'll see a button that says "New Thread". When you click it, you'll be able to type your post. Once you've finished typing your post, click the "Submit New Thread" button, and a new thread containing your post will be added to the forum you're in for other members to read and reply to. Enjoy, The Dogs- Forum.com Team
  11. Hi everybody, The moderating team would appreciate it if ALL of you took a few moments out of your day to review the rules of the forum, located here: The Dogs-Forum.com Rules We've noticed a growing trend here where people are making provocative responses trolls or troll-like posts, or calling them out as trolls. Please don't do that. If you come across a post or individual that is troll or spam like, all you have to do is report it to us. You can also make a post in TTTT, or even PM one of us. We will get to it when we can. Some are obvious and we're just going to ban and remove posts immediately when we see it/can, so there's no point in even replying to them. There's also a chance one of us has seen it and decided to leave it and monitor, just in case it is a genuine poster and NOT a troll. Poking/provoking trolls unfortunately makes this forum a more hostile place rather than a friendly one. We have to remember that this forum is open to a LOT of different people. Not everybody is educated or experienced with dogs. There are no dumb questions. For some people, english is not their first language and they may struggle to communicate. And we also sometimes have very young people joining, who are not experienced or don't have developed writing skills and may have trouble making their point. They may make posts that seem troll-like. When somebody responds provoking them, poking them, or mocking them instead of helping or trying to understand...Imagine how that would make them feel. It's always better to be safe than sorry, which is why we may opt to leave a troll-like post and monitor it. Ultimately, the point here is that if you don't have anything nice or helpful to say...Hit the back button and move on, or report it and move on. There's also an "ignore" feature....If there's a particular poster that bothers you, you can go into your user CP and add them to your ignore list so you won't see any of their topics or posts. We're taking this very seriously because we do pride this forum on being a FRIENDLY one. There are very few dog communities out there that we feel are as non-judgmental as this one. Some communities will rip a person to shreds for feeding a raw diet, not spay/neutering, doing a responsible rehome, having two puppies etc. This one does not. This is what we strive for as moderators...Building and maintaining a community that is enjoyable for everybody, so we don't end up being a clique. Please just keep the rules in mind whenever you post. Thanks!
  12. Hello Dogs-Forum.com Community This is just a reminder to everyone regarding private messages (PMs). Dogs-Forum.com moderators do not have access to monitor private messages. We have no way of knowing if you are being harassed, spammed, or otherwise ill-treated via PM. However, that does not mean that Dogs-Forum.com Rules do not apply to PMs, it simply means that we rely on forum members to inform us when such things occur. Please take the time to forward questionable messages to a forum moderator so that we can address the issue. It is understandable that you may not want to get another member in "trouble" but if someone is messaging you, you can bet they are messaging other members. Help us keep the forum friendly! On that note, if you in any way upset with another member, and you wish to address the issue privately, keep in mind that the Dogs-Forum.com rules apply to PMs as well as public posts. We want everyone here to feel like they are part of a community. We want friendships to be forged and for folks to feel comfortable addressing issues as adults, but tone of voice is difficult to interpret online, and not everyone has complimentary senses of humor. If a situation gets heated via PM, or you feel offended, remember that you are not required to participate, this is the interwebz after all, you can walk away! Bottom line... BE RESPECTFUL! Thanks for reading!
