If you own one, do they get up on their two feet to look at your tanks? Never owned one. I am thinking of getting a 225 gal acrylic tank and eventually getting a lab retriever as well. I just do not want my dog to scratch up my acrylic..:frown:

mine couldnt care less about my tanks unless a fish jumped out of it. He doesnt jump either, we trained him for that. If your dog is trained not to jump and is not interested in tanks i dont see a problem. Otherwise, you gotta teach your old dog new tricks... how old is your dog?
You gotta cesar milan him into submission to save your acrylic.

yeah, my dogs have never jumped up on my tanks and I have two pitbull terriers who are always being mischievous. So I doubt your Labs will mess with your tank.

Thanks for the replies!

That is good news. I have no dog at the moment. Plan on getting a pup when I find one. You betcha! He will be trained.

My Belgian Malinois doesn't care at all about the tanks, just the animals on TV. Yes, this dog knows by the tune of a commercial, runs over to the TV and watches it for the dog/cat/horse, etc to come on. Then she wants to attack it. Have to be careful with the 52" screen getting scratched up or falling down.

I like your Dachshund on your avatar, Scorpion. My "Fritz" (16 years old) is all red and the best ever.
