Replacing an old dog house

My old dog is rapidly deteriorating. Its been five years since I had a carpenter make a steel fenced doghouse complete with a small wooden dog house so that the dog can go to his "room" for privacy and some nap time free from noise pollution. I immediately scanned the internet for some ideas on some ready made dog houses.

I was stunned with the numerous hits from sites selling dog houses to pet supply and books. Does any one have any idea of what I should look for a new one since I think the old dog house was designed for a smaller german shepherd while now CG has grown into a humogous 120 pound dog.

I think I will settle for a functional one but I have to go and travel to the other city beside mine. I am calculating if I buy the one near me since It may be cheaper than having to travel and use gas just to save a little.

Defense is still necessary for me and my dog

I have a 120 pound "CG" German shepherd. I have been blessed to have him for four years now. He is a very obedient dog, he loves to run around until he is so tired. He is so receptive to being controlled or disciplined because he is able to understand that there are expectations on him. He is well fed and pampered with the necessary toys, treats and medicines.

Recently, there have been many cases of robberies in our neighborhood. I plan to enroll him in a dog scholl so that he can learn the attack command. I have other reasons for wanting to have him learn the command. Are there any reasons why he should not be trained for this one ? Is it a dangerous move?

Some snakes that can be a house pet.

For a liberal family or a conservative one that allows kids to have any pet they want, safety and maintenace of the pet considerations are the talking points. But when a kid takes a snake for a pet, one can see reactions that this might not be a good choice. Yes, there are hundres of snakes that are poisonous, agressive and outright dangerous but there are some snakes species that are proven to be good as house pets for kids that are of the age ten and older.

A pet snake would certainly be one out of the ordinary. The coolness factor would be so high especially when the owner is allowed to bring his pet into his school.

Horses are beautiful, worth caring for

Horses are beautiful by nature. Horses in the wild eat right. Run all day inasmuch as they develop their muscles to great proportions. They are also by nature very friendly.
