Thanks Julie64. I will try givig her treats and bring her toy.

Missy also stops playing when the other dog barks. She has such a good time and wants to play, but once the other dog barks she just stops.

Missy won't walk

When I got Missy, I already knew she had a walking problem. Basically she would lie on the floor and wouldn't move. I've gotten to her a point where she will walk, but only if there are no barking dogs around. She seems to have a big fear of barking dogs. She's a good walker at the park, but when I ...

Missy's met some French Bulldogs and they were fine with her. I'm not attacking your friend. What type of leadership role does she take with her dog? Usually I see this type of behavior with owners who are not leaders. My neighbors dog was exactly like that. The dog would run out of the house and co...

When we first got Missy she was lactating and the vet thought she might be pregnant, turned out she was not. The shelter may have thought she was pregant as well because they didn't speuter her, but didn't mention anything to us. Anyway, vet mentioned that it could have been stress that triggered th...

She uses Frontline flea medication, which she bought at a pet store, but it's the same kind sold at the vets. It's possible it could be that. I told her she should tlak to her vet.

She only baths her dog once a month. And the dog is on flea medication. There isn't any fleas or dandruff, so we can't figure it out. I told her to try not using the conditioner. And recommended Earthbath shampoos with conditioner, which I used on Missy. The fur isn't dried out, so maybe it's some k...

The dog doesn't have any flakes, so is it possible that it is something else. I'll advice her to maybe stop for awhile and see if things change.

Human Conditioner

A co-worker asked me if human conditioner was safe for dogs. For some reason her dog is itching and we think it maybe the conditioner. Any advice or thoughts.

I like using the prong because it's better than the choky, and Missy doesn't pull as much on it, where if she was on the flat collar alone....let's just say my hands have blisters after the walk. I honestly wouldnt listen to many vets on behaviour or training. Thats not what they are trained to know...

That happened to Missy once.

In Missy's case she had been tearing up a shirt and part of the fibers got down her throat. She started coughing and thorwing up white goo. After some water and rest she was better, but I learned my lesson.

Also this happens after Missy eats grass.

Sorry. Didn't read your comment about the garlic and Onion. So it does affect humans in the same way.

I was just thinking about this, if onions and garlic can cause anemia in animals then can't it cause anemia in humans as well. I always get a really bad headache when I eat a lot of onions. I have a dog cook book that has recipes with garlic powder. Are there any peer reviewed studies about dog toxi...
