Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS. It's not easy for most people or other "regular" fish keepers to understand why we maintain this type of collection and spare no expense on this fascinating hobby.

Hopefully, through this site and discussion forums we can encourage the next generation of Monster Fish Keepers to have the same passion and love we have for the hobby and our Monster Fish .

      I have a dobermanns pincsher and have been reading a lot about their specific requirements and one is advanced mental stimuli. I'm thinking of using "tracking" as his brain training to keep his mind occupied and active but how would you go about setting up a situation for him? Like hide a bit of food in the woods but spray something smelly every so often on the way or what?

      Move this thread to general discussion if you wish by the way! Lol

      Cheers,
      Keith

      /agree with Megabass. Schutzhund training is done incrementally relies on the dog's willingness and trainers ability to encourage and bring out the dog's natural inclinations.

      Tracking is taught in baby steps too. Get the books, and read up on it. It's a wonderful sport to participate in with your dogs.

      Cheers for the replies! I'll try get the book most definitely!

      I'm thinking tracking because I also hunt, using whippets and soon a redtail hawk so it could prove productive training it in something I could use :D
