    Boring help me with my barking dog thread.

We are new to dogs, I think we need the trainer more than he does. He does better when he gets structured training time. We're trying more crate time for...

    Leopard Tortoise nesting behavior and X-rays

    If she is still walking around fine, and eating normal. I don't think you need to intervene. I would work on your nesting area. Make spots of different types of soil, different moisture content, and deferent temperatures. Give her options with gradients.
