My wife and I have had a similar battle, get a new dog now (current dog is 4 yrs old) and get a new dog or wait till the dog is toward 2ish years toward death and then get a new puppy. We have multiple cats, so puppies are much easier with them. We def want another dog at least knee height, current is an incredibly behave German shepherd.

I loved an unrestrained rabbit hole πŸ˜‚ the way you guys talk reminds me of how my partner and I talk. I was laughing so hard.

Not sure what the chances are of Link seeing this, but I'm an animal behavior consultant that works with dogs, cats, and birds. I wanted to comment on the information that Link gave on Jasper's leash reactivity (barking at other dogs when on a walk):

Reactivity is a form of frustration and is the #1 behavior problem that many trainers (myself included) work with. So often when I am working with a client that is experiencing this SUPER frustrating behavior, they come to me with a laundry list of things that they have attempted in order to address the behavior on their own. Often one of the things they have tried is using training tools such as bark collars, remote electronic training collars, prong collars, etc. While tools like this provide an immediate change in behavior, they do not teach the dog what behaviors they should engage in or what emotions they should be feeling in that moment. Because of this, it increases the client's reliance on whatever tool they are using because the dog doesn't have actual coping mechanisms without the presence of the tool.

What happens when tools like this are used is that behavior is suppressed. When behavior is repeatedly suppressed in the presence of a stimuli that makes the dog hyperaroused/overstimulated, then we can run into a situation where something called behavior fallout occurs. This is like a tea kettle boiling over in terms of the dog's behavior and emotions. Sometimes we will see more severe behavior problems occur after behavior fallout because the dog's emotions have been suppressed for so long.

If there is any interest in creating long-term behavior change and teaching Jasper healthy coping mechanisms in these social situations that he's struggling with, Link can certainly look into a science based, force free trainer in his area. My employee Jolene and I also can help with this and work with clients on a myriad of behavior concerns all over the country: https://www.homewardboundbehavior.com/virtual-consultations

I seriously did not expect to be talking about any of this after watching this video! I love hearing about Barbara, Jade, Jasper, and Sokka and figured it would be stories/weird observations about living with animals. I mean....you guys didn't disappoint with the weirdness!! (LOL)

Meghan Grannas on July 23, 2022 at 11:59 pm

Well, they had me in the beginning lmao!!! Nah, but sometimes I like watching Car Biscuits because it's like I'm hanging out with two of my best friends...who just happen to know some very interesting information. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go lay down in the fetal position and cry lol.

Teri McTighe on July 6, 2022 at 2:04 pm

Link is like "Get me out of this conversation. Now." Same, Link… Same!! *shudder

Like Rhett, I don't care what any Canadian court or any other court rules, I have my own personal laws. Animals are your pets and companions, that's it. Anything else is sick, twisted, and wrong.

Heather G. Kreager on July 3, 2022 at 9:05 am

link you do not have to fell sorry for the show it was good and funny. please keep up the good work.

Nina Franck on July 2, 2022 at 6:47 am

"It's like a zen garden that smells like cat shit"... this almost had me dead from laughter ... lol
Truer words have never been spoken...

Mark Stanley on June 24, 2022 at 8:31 pm

I enjoyed the chat about Barbara, Jade, Jasper, and Sokka. Always nice to hear how they're doing! I was warned beforehand about what the adult content was, so I was braced for it. Frustrating that the search engine seemed to ignore the "ancient" in your search and gave you a flood of irrelevant and disturbing modern results.

Harry L Schroeder on June 24, 2022 at 12:14 pm

Link was done with that conversation lol

Teri McTighe on July 6, 2022 at 2:05 pm

And I was too. ick.

Karla Willis on June 21, 2022 at 12:15 am

The apology at the end made me LOL for real. 🀣🀣

Samantha Lawrence on June 18, 2022 at 1:21 pm

I have a 13lb Yorkie named Terry. We do agility together. We've tried rat sport and have done scent class, obedience, rally obedience and trick classes. I highly recommend dogsport for dogs of all sizes. It's a great way to strengthen your bond and get some training done. Plus, it's fun!

Even though we've been doing agility for over 2 years, we have no plans of competing. Don't need to. We just do it for fun.

Brenda Williams on June 18, 2022 at 6:05 am

Rhett my friend, keep your eyes on the road please πŸ™

Abigayle Cosenze on June 28, 2022 at 12:41 am

he's got a Tesla so I felt a little better about the eyes darting to links phone

Marina Veronica Corbi on June 17, 2022 at 5:47 pm

For anyone that wants to know, the adult themes start around 11 minutes in.

Casey Cline on June 16, 2022 at 12:12 pm

I really appreciate the warnings. The title seemed innocent enough I almost put it on the tv with my kids around! Proves you just never know with these two!

Emilia Palo on June 16, 2022 at 10:41 am

Hahahah, I love when you manage totally sidetrack the discussion.

Mary Cullen McVay on June 16, 2022 at 3:32 am

the "I'm sorry" right at the end will be the most iconic thing from this month's Car Biscuits

Christmas Eve LeVering on June 16, 2022 at 1:29 am

hi guys I am new here, and so far I am loving every minute of it.

Carissa Berlinger on June 15, 2022 at 6:03 pm

"I should have kept that thought in my brain." Things I find myself saying every day.

Somer Flowers on June 16, 2022 at 12:40 am

Poor Links brain just didn't want to wrap it's head around what was being talked about. I get it! I don't want to think people are capable of a lot of the things they are. But todays funeral makes a lot more sense now at the end with Links eulogy for Rhett 🀣

Beverley Smith on June 15, 2022 at 10:08 pm

is it bad that all I could think of was what must the poor monitor lizard have been thinking was happening πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ I'm gonna go wash my mind out with soap πŸ˜–

Allison Horsley on June 15, 2022 at 2:32 pm

This explains that Smosh video today where it was Rhett and Link's funeral. I like how they overlap and we get to hear the origin story. This was one of the funnier carpool videos.

Amy Scalf on June 15, 2022 at 1:23 pm

These guys are always full of surprises!

Robert Dominguez on June 15, 2022 at 8:01 pm

best episode yet! πŸ’¨

Joy Swisher on June 15, 2022 at 12:40 pm

Making sure there is a dog overlap is super super important. I lost my heart dog this spring and our 2nd dog and therapy helped a ton.

And also,
The rest of the conversation...

DeadπŸ’€ 🀣

JustSam on June 15, 2022 at 3:14 pm

I've noticed that a lot of people (including myself) have a tendency to use their dog's name when talking about them, but when referring to theit pet cat they often just say, "the cat." R&L spoke like that here. Just a lil observation.

Everett M. on June 15, 2022 at 4:12 pm

I'll use my cats' names in conversation IF the person I'm talking to knows which cat is which by name. (I got multiple)
But if they don't know my cats by name then the name doesn't mean anything to them.

Laurie Owen on June 15, 2022 at 2:54 pm

Oh the things Link just saw during that search!😬 But there were many times when I Googled some stuff and fell down a dark hole. Can't unsee or forget that stuff either!πŸ™„ You'll be okay eventually Link....🀞

Erica is Lost in the Music on June 15, 2022 at 2:34 pm

LOL Jade sounds as timid as my doxie mix. That's so cute that Barbara is such an extrovert. That's amazing. πŸ˜‚ I just love dogs. Cats are cool and all but dogs are my vary favorite animal. πŸ₯° Wait. HWAT... Er, not THAT favorite!! Welp, you learn something every day, even when you didn't want to. 😳 Oh gosh. I wonder if that's where the phrase "young buck" came from.
Well, I feel dirty now. πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’« Yeah, this was...somethin' else. My, my. Ok, I'm gonna go try to get the blush outta my face. πŸ™ˆ

Susan Etheridge on June 15, 2022 at 5:55 am

Wow. Definitely worth that viewer discretion warning at the start! This one of the more shocking Car Biscuits discussions. Glad you kept it and didn't decide on a safer family-friendly discussion.

Sean Marcus Pace on June 15, 2022 at 5:45 am

Link's from the southern backwoods and he's skeptical about people engaging in beastiality? Link, honey, I have some news for you about the people you grew up around...
(as a southerner, I hope I can get away with this comment).

Smorbie the great and beautiful on August 2, 2022 at 7:26 pm

I'm a southerner, too. I've never heard anyone admit to it, but I've heard stories. I used to work in the STI department with my state's government, so, yes, I've heard a loooot of stories from the investigators. It's a sick world.

Kirsty J on June 15, 2022 at 11:43 am

One of the funniest yet most disturbing CarBiscuits ever. I just wish that I hadn't been sent down a rabbit hole that I now feel I need to stick my head in a vat of bleach to forget. πŸ˜‚
