Use the higher setting totoast it faster, you just have to stop it automatically

I think a higher toast setting is a question of the time it is on as opposed to how hot it is set, therefore it would not make a difference

Did you know..........they are training dogs to be breath sniffers.......they have an uncanny success rate of detecting certain types of cancer in people just by sniffing their breath.........no sh!t..

They can also be aware of a upcoming epileptic seizure! They can be trained to alert the owner so they can lie down and avoid injury

. when a dog gets mad at you for blowing in his face..I think it depends on how much garlic you have been eating...or alcohol you have consumed..lol...I read somewhere that dogs cannot stand the smell of tobacco....or some perfumes....they are sensitive beasts...I tell that to my three guys all the time.. :lol:

Piggy I have search and rescue dogs and I assure you if you blow in there face it is the scent from your mouth that ticks them off.

The cancer thing is actually from the scent of your urine. And this is natural. Yes colon cancer can be detected as well through the breath as well. But they are more successful with urine.

.......GREAT info. on mans best friend red....I don't have rescue dogs...but own a guard dog... that.pretends to be nasty but she's really just a lamb....the other two guys kind of just hang around like my best buds....for dedication ...you can't beat them...and they don't ask for a helluva lot.. I spoil them...and yeah they don't like it when I eat pepperoni and blow on their nose....but strangely enough they don't mind eating the stuff along with me..they're funny that way...and yes they have blue and gold bandannas...what else.. :wink:

Mans best friend is duct tape not dogs. Dont you ever watch red green? :lol:

...yeah i do....i like the word game....but mostly the duct tape use ...in all sorts of interesting ventures....red green is the man..but my dogs are the guys.. :slight_smile:

Awesome red........that is the coolest thing I have ever heard.........I have raised golden retreivers since I was 10, and am never surprised at just how much we dont understand about their behavior..........no kidding they are mans (homo sapiens to be correct) best friend..........search and rescue, what an amazing job you must have, did you come up through the military by chance..........

Our search and rescue group is volunteer based. The dogs train for three years at around $200 per dog per month. They train for search and rescue, evidence search and of course disaster search. The concept is is very easy for the dogs and as they train the more they get driven to work. My shepards absolutely change from playful pups to business dogs just by putting their harnesses on them. When we work some people come up to pet them and they totally ignore they are there and continue working. In training they are timed how long to track to the subject. Swamp training is the most difficult and is very hard on them. One of my dogs was injured in the swamp training and is going to a doctor to manipulate the disc back into place. But it has not stpped her in her duties. For a test we get 12 people together one will place a wallet on the grond the dog enters the area and smells the wallet then goes over to the owner and places their paw on them. They get it everytime. We have done this at large gatherings as well. At the folk festival a purse was left at a booth and the dogs tracked us to the owner there were hundreds of people in attendance. It truly is great fun for the dogs. We were very close to be sent down to Louisiana for the Katrina disaster. In our group we have 30 dogs.
