I find it interesting that we preach humane conditions for fish, but you have your dog in a spiked choke chain? Granted, I don't know his behavioral issues...but maybe you could discuss this choice?
They do look otherwise happy and healthy. :)20 gallon with a male betta, neons, glowlights, and red cherry shrimp. (work in progess) Recently added a few LIVE plants and driftwood, Woooohoooo!

You got a grate looking family there Jenn
I love the brindle coloring in your dog.
We too had to us a pinch caller on our black lab cross until he was around 4 years old. That dog had more energy then he know what to do with. When talking him on walks, he would try to bolt if he saw other dogs, especially other dogs playing. He always want to run over to make new canine friends. As he was 110 lbs, the pincher was the most effective way to prevent him from running across the street.
I think most people do not understand the prongs on the caller never dig into the dog's neck, only moving backwards and pinching some skin in between the prongs. They are actually very safe when fitted and used correctly and simulate a natural correction that a "alpha dog" or pack leader would give other dogs, or mother dogs would give their puppies, when they step out of line.
Anyways..... grate looking crew for sure!!!If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

I'm a small dog person myself but several years back a neighbor's 20-something son brought home a pit puppy he named Friday. She grew up to be one of the sweetest, calmest dogs as this kid worked daily with her on heeling, sitting - all the usual commands. My small silky terrier - who was not a fan of most other dogs - was her best friend.
But Friday didn't know her own strength! As her owner's mother was walking her one day through the wooded area around our condo complex, they startled a couple of deer and Friday took off in pursuit, toppling my neighbor. She had to let go of the leash so she wouldn't be dragged too far. She went back to the house, grabbed her car keys and returned to the area. Just shaking the keys and calling brought Friday back as she loved riding in the car more than chasing the deer. The dog was fine, my neighbor was not hurt and no, Friday didn't catch the deer.
Since these are such strong dogs, you gotta do what you gotta do to keep you both safe. I hope the neutering and maturity settles him down a bit for you.
