Re: Confidence building

Great suggestions! Thanks. That shape game sounds like a lot of fun..I really think he'll enjoy that.
I never thought about it being upsetting to him..interesting. He loves food so that could be it

Re: Confidence building

Thank you everybody else for the suggestions. I'll let you know how everything goes. We have some clickers laying around and I guess we'll have to whip 'em out again. I do work with the things he already knows and lots of treats/praise and that seems to help lift his spirits. I really hope it's just...

Re: Confidence building

And we cannot afford a behaviorist so in-home techniques/suggestions are best. Several times I offered you a consult free of charges given the issues you spoke of, on this forum, which are not new and go a few years back. I also directed you to someone closer, since a 3 hours drive was not an optio...

Confidence building

As Chase ages, he seems to get more and more fearful of everything around him. I'm looking for some good confidence building exercises to help build his self-esteem and get him back to the way he was. He's scared of pretty much any floor cleaner, plastic bags, paper bags, when anything moves quickly...

Re: Fed a raw bone but still puking up sharp pieces

Hey everybody. Chase has made it through. A lot of huge poops and another puke (of course on the carpet -the puke not the poop) he is fine again.
And I'm done giving him soup bones.

Re: Fed a raw bone but still puking up sharp pieces

Ruby will occasionally barf up pork bone fragments or chicken leg/thigh fragments from her dinner - always eeeaarrly the next morning. That bother me when it happens but seem to be fairly routine and not every time... Don't overgeneralize, Chasesmom... I occasionally feed the little round 'soup bon...

Re: Fed a raw bone but still puking up sharp pieces

Well this will definitely be the last one he gets after the piece I saw he puked up this morning. Poor guy :crybaby: I'll feed him a cup this afternoon and maybe some bread too. Shows how ignorant I am, I thought as long as it wasn't cooked it's game on. I'm scared to feed him little chicken bones a...

Fed a raw bone but still puking up sharp pieces

Yesterday, I gave Chase a beef soup bone RAW for him to gnaw on. Today, he puked up this very sharp piece of bone. I thought raw bones were supposed to be safe?? He's had them before and didn't have problems. Anything I can do to make sure the pieces he has in him come out safely? I fed him some ext...

Re: good, durable collars?

Check out the Crypton fabric collars from Collarmania. (link is above in first reply)

You said you guys get pretty dirty being outside so that's what I would go for.

Re: Transitioning from an inside to outside dog

I don't have any good advice about an outdoor pen because I've never done one but I do think that you should reconsider your options and look in to rehoming your dogs. I don't think that outside dogs are a terrible thing if done correctly (although I would never have a dog and leave it outside-what'...

Re: Eating dirt.

I wouldnt worry about it too much, I was in lowes the other day and there was a pregnant lady eating dirt out of a bag with a spoon, I am not kidding at all. So apparently if pregerrs ladys can eat it, it wont hurt the dogs? NFW! What a weirdo...hopefully it was a brownie mix or crunched up oreos o...

What did you order?

I ordered the leash with the traffic handle M.F.P rope brown with all brass fittings.


Good choice. We have the traffic lead in teal. Love it. Especially when other dogs or sketchy looking people are approaching.

Re: Jumping/Excitable Behavior Problem

I don't know about the pulling/jumping on leash because Chase still does that sometimes but as far as your friends coming over... Make them ignore him when they show up. If he jumps up, have them turn their back on him. Chase gets really excited when people come over and he was taught to get a toy a...

Re: fixating on joggers ?!?

Maybe she just wants to run with them?

When Chase was younger and he could still go to dog beach, he would fixate on people running, and when they passed he would try and run with them. I mean, I can't say for sure that is it, but I really wouldn't freak about it.
