Re: Indoor? Ever?

Congrats on your new additions! It really depends a lot on the individual dog(s) - some just prefer being outside - but also on how they were raised. Since they are now 12 weeks old (they were living at the breeder this whole time?) it's possible that they were housed in an outdoor enclosure / indoo...

It is critical to conduct extensive research before working with any breeder, particularly in contentious societies like as the Tamaskan breed. Absolutely! Saxon Tamaskan, known for their emphasis on breeding excellence and avoidance of breed politics, could be worth investigating. Magic Eight Ball...

Re: Is Bamboo Rice really healthy?

I think bamboo rice is just a filler material, much like regular rice, or sweet potato, etc... it's fine to mix into the food now or then, or in small quantities, but it shouldn't form a main portion of the daily diet.

Welcome to the forum! Tamaskan Dogs are somewhat more stubborn and independent compared to border collies, but they are equally intelligent and fast learners. However, they are easier to train than huskies or malamutes, and usually have better recall too! You can see more info here: www.sylvaen.com/...

It depends a lot on the bloodline, as well as the specific combination.
