Do you ever lurk other dog breed forums?

    I do, just to see if I get a feel for people who are attracted the other breeds, and the breeds themselves.
    So far I've lurked Weimeriner's, Bernese Mountain Dog's, Husky, and Pug

    ....that's not creepy is it? Lol, I feel like I'm going through all the high school clique lunch tables and observing or something.

  • I hope it's okay to bump this thread. Does anyone know of any active Samoyed forums? The breed is on our list for possible-future-dog-someday-when-we-have-money. Pretty different from Shibes, from what I can tell haha! But a forum would be great help for me to figure out who the good breeders are, as well as hear from actual owners.

    There was a forum called Worldwide Samoyed Smiles or something, but I don't think they're active, or the admins are very busy. I've been waiting for a month for an administrator to approve my account so I can access the forum SIGH.

    I don't know of a Samoyed forum, but used to own one about 14 years ago, and for 11 years. She was a beautiful, sweet dog and just as independent minded as a shiba.

    I don't read any other dog forums, mainly because I'm not interested in any other breed now.

    I do Doberman forums since I have 2 dobes and do dobie rescue. Haven't been to any other forums though, since I typically only get to that point when I'm ready to own one, haha. I consider it part of my research. if I go there before then, I may get tempted :)

  • I've read through a few with the thought of getting the breed before finding out a Shiba was what we wanted. Years ago I joined a Labrador forum, and Dalmatian forum a little after that. Then my situation unexpectedly changed and couldn't accomodate a dog so I stopped thinking about it for a while as it made me sad that I was years away from a doggie!

    Then when I was ready again, I lurked a retired greyhound forum, then a deerhound forum (hubby still wants a deerhound one day!) then finally joined this Shiba forum, and now have a little Shiba on the way! It's been a bit of a journey through many breeds to get here, but that's the point of all the research isn't it? I'm glad these places exist, the information from actual owners is completely different from generic breed info on the wider internet.
