Re: Change in behavior

Thank you both so much for your advice! In the past two nights I've taken him out when I've gotten home, did the normal potty walk, and then was able to take him to a secluded park area where he can run off leash. I can tell he's missed the freedom to run circles around me and sniff individual piece...

Change in behavior

My dog, Biggie, is 9 years old now. I've had him for 5 of those years, and in that time he has shown no sign of aggression with anything he's encountered. He is shy of men and will bark a couple of times if they come in the house, but settles quickly, and will approach and seek affection if they sit...

Re: question for all the male owners out there

Don't feel bad, I adopted my boy at 5 years old intact. I had him immediately neutered and never once in over 3 years have I seen him lift his leg.

This has probably already been addressed in the 60+ pages ahead of me, but I am curious. I'm looking towards slowly switching my dog to more raw food. I'm feeding him Pro Plan now with some raw veggies and the occasional bits of cooked meats (none fatty or fried). Bones are integral in this diet, bu...

No HA in this house. I've had protective dobies that would bark normally at people passing by our yard, but when I and my other smallish friends were playing, they'd stand as frozen guards between the fence and us and do that deep warning growl/bark. Very good babysitters. And very delicate with me....

I kiss my boys head all over, nibble his ears, and give him belly rasberries. He used to shy away from all, but now he thrusts his head at me (he's not a licker) and waits, and will squirm and smile at me when he's on his back. Once he realized it was affection, he now wants it daily. Oh.. and we to...

I usually don't say anything to other owners unless the behavior of either them or their dog is pretty poor. In your case (since you were already discussing training etc) I might have addressed the shiba owners. I would have said something like "Have you ever thought about teaching him to sit ...

Thank you for your insight. I know I was a little blunt with the girl, but she didn't take offense, she was just sad about her dog not being social. She made several references to other dog park incidents, and I wasn't mean, but I had a little bit of that mommy/manager voice. How about dealing with ...

What is appropriate (dog/owner etiquette)?

So let me start off by saying this -- I have been hesitant to post this. I know that socialization is a hot button here, and I'm not sure where I should publicize my stance without sounding ignorant. My dog is not dog aggressive. At all. He's extremely omega with other animals, and is the icon of ge...

I can't help you with the behavioral issues, but when I worked with my step father (a vet) in Hall County, Georgia (north of Atlanta), I worked often with Georgia's spay/neuter programs. There are MANY options available to you, you just need to look for them. This information is copied from http://w...

I've met snuggly dogs before, but these pitties take some cake. IMHO, its just a bonding thing, they just like to be near you. You've settled in somewhere, and they just want to be up against you and keep you both warm.


Biggie likes to be the little spoon. lol
