Sled dog questions? Answered

Hi im looking for someone who knows a bit about dog mushing to help me out... Im wondering if one great Pyrenees/lab mix dog would be able to pull a very heavy load??? He is about 80 to 90 percent great pyranese and is only 8 months old but when he gets to be older is his breed any good??? Also I was wondering if it would be a lost cause to try to break a 7 year old lab ino a dog sledding harness and see if they can pull together?? They are both very obedient dogs and easy to train!!

Dog psychology: someone will know this? Answered

To all people experienced in dog training, I could really use some help with this floor wetter?

I have two dogs. One is a mini poodle that behaves very well.  My other dog is an estimated 7-8-ish mostly puggy mix that we got much more recently.  She's the one we have trouble with. I don't know what her life was like before we got her because she was found wandering the desert outside of the shelter we bought her from.  I know that its likely she was well cared for because she had incredibly soft fur and pure white teeth.  However, for the first couple months of having her she was extremely skittish.  If someone entered the room she'd bolt outside. (dog door)  Over the course of a several weeks I got her to trust me.  Since then I have confirmed that while she is a bit skittish she is a very loving and good dog by the standard of she wants to please. Now for the specific problem.  She piddles on the floor, and quite often on anything cloth that has been left on the floor and most especially on anything soft in the rearmost areas of the house.  She started shortly after she arrived but seemed to stop when she got more used to the place and learned the use of the dog door.  Then she started again, just briefly, and stopped again.  She seems to have started again but with bigger puddles.  With previous dogs I always tried the traditional method of stick their nose in it swat them on the bum and take them outside to show them where they're supposed to do it and it always worked. This is much more difficult with Ellen because of her reactions.  If I grab her collar she loses her mind.  She starts by dropping to the ground, giving me deadweight, and if I don't let go immediately she starts screaming like a banshee and twisting.  She is a small dog, maybe 25 pounds, but it's all muscle.  During one attempt to show her the site of her wrongdoing she twisted hard and managed to catch and break my finger.  I hold no grudge for this but as I don't want to repeat this I am asking for advice here. Ask any questions, I'll try to answer.  I could really use some advice.

Jedi Training Center

I live on a lake and want to put in some fun stuff for fun and training.  Free stuff is a plus...budget is $50 or so.  Must be able to take out of the water in the fall. First idea I had was to anchor some of those (closed) blue 50 gallon barrels so that people could try and stand on them and fight each other.  I haven't tested this out yet...they may be just too unstable.  I also have to figure out how to tie and anchor them to a cinder block on the bottom of the lake so they can just stay there and float.  Any ideas? Other things....log diving board....let your imagination go.  i haven't found any pics or sites on the internet on this topic, so any ideas appreciated. Thanks!

Train Surfing by the Train Rider

Preformed by a German known as "the trainrider". Before he died from leukemia, he enjoyed the last year of his life by surfing on trains. Included Germany's fastest Highspeed train ICE with a top speed of 330 km/h(!) No one did that before. So, there's a lot of video on the youtubes about him faking his death... It's possible someone is trying to claim the fame - or he really did fake it for a variety of reasons... In any case, it's still quite an amazing feat - but he did it, now you don't have to :p

A train that doesn't ever stop or slow down? Sounds ridiculous (ly efficient). This design is a pretty interesting take on the concept, though liability issues and real-world feasibility will probably keep this from ever making it past the drawing board.Link

I want to make a free-standing frame for a TRX/gymastics rings type system.

I don't think I can drill holes into my walls in my apartment to attach them to, so I thought a free-standing frame would be a good solution, but I can't find plans or prototypes anywhere! Ideas? I would be open to other ideas that didn't involve a frame, as long as they didn't require me to drill holes into walls or rely on possibly unstable studs in an old building.  I'd like something that wasn't in a door frame, but if its easy to use and put up and take down, I'm in.

I am building a 1/6th scale working tilt train and I am want to use small air bag suspension to make it tilt on corners.

The real tilt train only tilts 5 degrees each side of level for cornering but it uses a different method of controlling the tilt which may be too difficult in 1/6th scale so that is why I was thinking of the airbags as they are also on the real train. I am also looking at putting a video camera in the loco cabs with monitors in each carriage just like the real ones.

Train Pets... Where to Sneeze or Vomit.

Pets, like kids, learn where to pee n poo.  Basic courtousy and hygiene. To what degree this is training, or instinct, I dont know.   Once in a blue moon, a pet vomts, coughs up hairballs, just about anywhere in the house,  or sneezes in one's face. Since these things are much less frequent, training to do em in the litter box, or into a hanky is less likely to take. Kids eventually learn where to go when nauseous, why not so with dogs, cats, etc. Any idea of how to acheive this higher level of consideration?

Japan to get 217 mph train

The Shinkansen trains in Japan were already plenty speedy at 188 mph (300 kph), but now they're going to be upgraded to 217 mph (350 kph). I rode the train a few times a while ago and totally loved it. The countryside flew by as you tucked into a bento box. It was great and it was so comfortable.Here in California there's a proposition on the upcoming ballot to pass a bond so that we can have a high-speed rail that takes you from SF to LA in 2.5 hours. I don't have a lot of reasons to go to LA, but when I do it would be nice to avoid playing the airport game (everyone loses!) or the driving game (slow down for the car crashes!). To finally get a high-speed train would be a dream.Going metric would be nice, too. 350 kph sounds much better than 217 mph. Link

What can I do with a train table that my kids have outgrown?

We have a train table similar to this except our drawers are on the other ends.  We no longer use it for a train table.  My kids end up piling stuff on top of it in a heap.  The green top is actually 2 long, very sturdy boards.  I saw this, but that's still basically the same thing and my youngest is a 7yo girl.  The table takes up too much space in our apartment so I would like to convert it into something smaller and more useful.  Any ideas?
