My Namesake

You might be saying, "Hey, that's a funny looking husky!" Well, it isn't a husky. I was named after this Afghan hound. My Human knew his humans, and she really liked their show dog, Ch. Casbar Turbo-Charge.

When my Human got me I was supposed to be a show dog, but circumstances beyond our control nixed that. My registered name is Huricane Akara Turbofire. But of course you can call me Turbo or Tubey.

Interesting story. I thought you were named 'Turbo' because you are fast, like all Huskies are.

I have definately lived up to my name. My Human, trying to be funny, said she should have named me "Calm, Cool, and Collected" so that I'll be a quite lug.

Humans are stupid.

Excellent blog and thanks for the opportunity to share my thoughts here. I also love dogs and I decided to put together a website dedicated to dog training. However, I am actually trying to offer both some general tips for training your dog and some breed-specific training techniques. I believe each dog breed is slightly different and thus requires an adaptation of the standard dog training methods, to suit the breed’s behavioral patterns and genetic predispositions. This is why I believe there is quite a bit of difference between affenpinscher training and bandog training. Or between dalmatian dog training and Afghan hound training. Each breed has its own distinct personality, and an independent breed like the dal will require stricter training than the disciplined bandog.

There are hundreds of dog breeds I wish to cover and I am only half way through, but I hope to turn my site in the best dog training resource on the Internet.

An excellent day to everyone reading this!
