Member Profiles ??? (...Just a Thought...)

So, I had a thought...
How do you all feel about a Member profile?
If you send me a picture of you, your boxer, the two of you, pictures of their fub-siblings (other pets you own), whatever pictures you want (up to six) and a few words about you and your boxer, I can set up a posting with your pictures and your info so that other people know what kind of boxer you own and what kinda person you are. That way, at the meetings, we can look for the people that we've read about and have something to talk about other than the "kids".

Just let me know what you think!
If anyone is interested, email me the info and pictures at:
MANDATORY INFO (if your interested in this):
1. Boxer's/s' name/s
2. Age
3. Coloring/Markings
4. Likes (females, males, cats, no other dogs, etc.)
5. Your (first) Name (only)
6. Area that you're from (I would recommend "general area". Dont be too specific)
7. Your age (c'mon, don't be shy--just so I know that you're not a kid)
That's all that I can think of for now (to at least get the ball rolling).
(if you'd like, not mandatory, but its cool to see some of the other dogs that we'll be meeting)

RE: "" and flyers

As far as goes, I don't *think* that there's anything that I/we "need" to do to actually "disban".
I think that the membership will just kinda "run out" on that page. I'm not really sure.
But here's my take on things over there at that site...
I think that the whole "charging for membership" thing isn't going over too well.
They keep sending the member organizers (me, in this case) these emails trying to coax us in with better deals, Its still going to be rediculously expensive for something that we can do for free!
At any rate, with that in mind... I don't think that they're getting any money out of this change.
Just my take on the situation.

I will print up some flyers for you for sure! And I would totally appreciate you hanging a few of them in your area as well.

PS: Judy, did you get my email? Please let me know at:

So far, May 1st is looking good!!!

Business Cards

I have actually printed some of these cards up from when we had to page and passed a few of those out. I also posted some of those "rip tab" type of flyers (where you can rip off a tab at the bottom of the flyer to take home the webpage/number of whatever is being advertised).
Anyhow, I have placed a few of those flyers so I need to edit the web address and repost them and also print out some new cards.

I will use the same layout for the new cards, but I will just change the address.

Laws(PA), Guidelines and Expected Conduct

This post is to inform all member of the Laws, Guidelined and Expected Conduct that should be followed and taken into consideration for our meeting regarding Park Rules and PA Dog Laws.
**You SHOULD have your dog's collar with his/her proper tags as well as a leash on your person while at our meetings. Failure to have these items can/may result in a fine for "Dog at Large" (no leash) and "Lack of licensure" (tags: current county license and rabies tag)

I. Laws
(an overview-not complete listing-it's your responsibility to research these laws further. As Dog owners, you should have at least some understanding of PA's Dog Laws)

A. PA Dog Laws (limited overview, NOT comprehensive):
What are Pennsylvania's Dog Laws?
1. All dogs three months of age or older must be licensed. Licenses are issued by the county treasurer.
**If caught without a license, you can be fined up to $300 per dog/per lack of license**
2. All dogs must be under control and may not be allowed to run at large. Dogs are personal property and owners are responsible for damages caused by their dog.
3. It is illegal to mistreat or abuse any animal. Violations should be reported to the local humane organization or police.
4. You may not place any poison or harmful substance in any place where it may be easily found and eaten by dogs whether it be your property or elsewhere.
5. It is illegal to abandon or attempt to abandon any dog. Fines for abandonment range from $300 to $1,000 plus court costs.
6. No dog less than seven weeks old may be bartered traded, sold or transferred.
7. You must have a current kennel license if you operate a kennel that keeps, harbors, boards, shelters, sells, gives away or transfers a total of 26 or more dogs in any one calendar year.
8. It is illegal to interfere with an officer or employee of the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture engaged in enforcement of dog laws.

**All dogs must be under control. This means that when your dog is not on your property, it must be under the direct control of you or a handier. The best way to control your dog is with a leash. Remember that dogs are personal property. You are responsible for any damage caused by your dog. **
(This information was taken from:

1. Dogs and household cats over 3 months of age must be vaccinated against rabies.
2. Animals under 1 year of age at the time of their original vaccination must have a booster vaccination one year later, and every three years thereafter.
3. Inoculations must be administered or supervised by a licensed veterinarian. The veterinarian will provide the animal's owner with a certificate and tag indicating the animal has been vaccinated.
4. If requested, the vaccination certificate must be presented to enforcement officers.
5. State licensed kennel owners may administer rabies vaccinations to animals they own after being certified by the Department of Agriculture.
6. Failure to have your animals vaccinated or failure to produce proof of vaccination may result in fines of up to $300 per day.
(This information was taken from:
**Have your Rabies Tag on your Dog Collar (and worn!) when outdoors and off of your property**

In short...
It is in your best interest (as well as in that of others' and your dog's) to have a collar with the proper identification, licenses, and vaccination tags on your dog when outdoors or in public settings that are located off of your own property.
Failure to comply with the above mentioned PA dog laws can result in fines and quarentine of your dog.

II. Group Guidelines and Expected Conduct:
A. Aggression
Definition: Aggressive: Inclined to behave in an actively hostile fashion (from
Forms of Canine Aggression:
1. Dog-Dog aggression
-one dog acting aggressively towards another dog.
2. Dog-Human (Adult) aggression
-dog acting aggressively to an Adult Human.
3. Dog-Child Aggression
-dog acting aggressively to a Child.
4. Food Aggression
-dog who acts aggressively around food (typically when having been
starved or denied food for periods of a time. Common in rescues
and shelter dogs brought in as strays. Children should be taught at
a young age to NEVER approach a dog while eating.)
5. Object Possesiveness Aggression
-dog shows aggression when is threated with removal (either by a
human or another dog "stealing" it, related to food, toys, etc.) of an
6. Fear Aggression
-aggression that stems from the "Fight or Flight" response. A dog
(just like a human) when threated will either run like hell or stick
around and try to "fend off" the scary thing. Dogs in this situation
that try to "stay and fend off the scary thing" are noted as having
fear aggression. It's not as cut and dry as that, but it is fairly
common in dogs that were victims of abuse

a. If your dog shows signs of aggression (types 1-3), please do not bring him or her to the meetings. There are People of all ages at the parks, and in a setting where a dog is excited with multiple other dogs and activities going on, his or her actions will be unpredictable.

b. If your dog DOES show signs of aggression, I am completely within my limits (as are any other people utilizing the dog park) in asking you to take your dog out of the off leash area. It is no longer "acceptable" by the park's rules for your dog to be in that park.
In the event that this might occur, Kindly do as asked. It's not personal; it IS, however, for the safety of the other dogs, their owners, and for the safety of your dog (as well as your wallet if "something" DOES happen).

(I'm sure that I'm forgetting something, but I will update/edit the post as needed/remembered).

III. Release of Liability
I, as the organize of this group, am in no way, shape, or form responsible for any injury that occurs during one of our meetings. "Injury" is in reference to that resulting from the behavior (playful or aggressive) of dogs (other than my own), those resulting from the infrastructure of the park, injury resulting from other people in the park, etc.
YOU, and ONLY YOU, are responsible for YOURSELF as well as YOUR DOG/S in all aspects of the group's meetings. By being present at a meeting you agree to these terms and understand that attendance means the possibility of risks involved.
Again... I am in no way responsible for ANY injury occuring (with the exception of those that stem from myself or my dog) while at our meetings.
**The dogs have gotten along famously so far and as of yet, NO one has been asked to leave, however I do reserve the right to intervene, as do the other members.
(I also feel that its necessary to post that release of liability garble just so everyone is aware.)
