Wow,dogs grow really quick! The two pics don't look like the same dog,color really different..:confused:
I hope he does not stay in the dog-house outside all the time.

He is sooo gorgeous!!!! I love the pic where he's in the pumpkin.

I agree w/Chico, he's not outside and in the dog house all the time is he??

If he is outside all the time, please reconsider to bring him in the house.:)

Here's an excellent site to go to:

dogs deserve better (http://www.dogsdeservebetter.com)


Please don't get mad that I put this site here, but I just want to make you aware of what can happen to a dog that lives outside 24/7.

I'm not saying that you do live him out 24/7.

Please don't take offense to me posting that site.

I don't see a chain anywhere,so I doubt that he's chained up out there.:D

I hope not.

Bentley is spoiled rotten he has a doggy door, so comes and goes as he pleases. He also weres a shock collar. The collor gives a warning sound if he leaves the yard and a eletric buzz if he continues way from the yard. It only took 1 day to train him on his boundrys. This is much better than a chain and much cheaper than a convention fence.

I only have one comment I disagree with shock collars completely.

Bently is very cute! Glad to hear he's spoiled and happy.:)

The only problems with invisible fences is that they do NOT stop other dogs, animals, or people from coming on your property and attacking or stealing your dog. Also if there is a power failure, your dog is free to leave the property.

Hi Lubu and lucky rescue


I would like say a word about shock collers. The word SHOCK is sounds like torcher but Bently rarley ever gets shocked. This is how it works. We put a small wire around our yard that will be his boundry and put up small white flages to show him visual pirmitors. The first day he walk through the flaged area and got shocked the next week we took down ever 2nd flag the next week we took the rest until it was invisable. He now knows his territory and never gets a shock because the callors gives a warning beeb well
before any discpline. I recommend this to anybody that is willing to train there pet. My dog has his freedom and at the same time will not get hit by a car or be wondering around.

By the way his getting fixed next week...... Please dont email him:)


I Love Dogs

Thanks for the input eveyone

Thanks for the info...but I do know all about them and still don't believe in them.

It provides no barrier..so other animals and people can trespass into area's that your dog feels is his.

Be prepared, if someone enters your property and your dog is loose unsupervised, it could and may attack a child or another animal.

This is just one of the many reasons I do not like them.


On another note, he is absolutely adorable :D

Well all I can say is my guys know their boundery.Especially on my sisters farm...And no shock collar was needed.

Guess it's called old fashioned training.:D

2 months or so. But leaving it on does hurt him whatsoever because a warning sound happens before the static buzz. He turns back fast before the buzz.

The puppy is a 7 week young little girl. The girls named her"Daisy" to go with the cat's name "Maisy".
She is a cross between a sheep dog and a small Sheltie. Should be cute and not too big once it's an adult.
I picked her up at the local animal shelter this morning. They don't get beautiful puppies like this one that often so I simply had to take her home with me. Jessica has been begging us for months now to get a dog. So Bently has a potential girl friend now. haha!!!

Lightning, Was the invisible fence (collar) from the same company as that poor dogs?? I was so glad to read that your not using the collar on your dog anymore :)

Thanks for posting that link, I was trying to find that myself.

Not only do they get burned but they are afraid to 'reenter ' their own yard for fear of being shocked again, so it can train them to be afraid to return home.

As I mentioned before I've known dogs that have died from shock collars.

It's beautiful isn't it that all these companies make a killing off of people who actually believe they are doing what is right and responsible...but in actually fact they are endangering their pet.

AND anyone who may set foot on the property.
