Re: What am I?

Without reading your description I thought 'lab/boxer' or 'lab/pit' but yes, when they're little it's tough to tell. It may remain tough to tell! :D CUTE is what they are!

Re: He pees in HER crate

Nope, dogs like pee. They sniff it, lick it, roll in it. :D Take any bedding or anything porous out of the crate and wash it thoroughly in a product made specifically for pet urine. Clean the crate thoroughly with a product like that too - Lysol or Bleach aren't your friends here, you really need an...

Re: Who's used Proin?

Liberty has been on Proin for about two years, she's about eight now. Increased aggression is another side effect, but not one that's a concern for Liberty. lol We have to disguise the pill in cheese or something, and occasionally have to pill her, which she is deeply offended by. It's always a surp...

Slacker! (three species officially. She's also lived with spiders, turtles, and snakes and a mom who occasionally smells like chickens.)

Re: Liberty on the Homefront

I realized last night that Liberty has now officially taught three different species not to be afraid of dogs - not just in my home, but in official capacities as a helper dog in my Reactive Rover classes, helper dog in Kitten Kindergarten, and in Project Mickey (which goes into Elementary Schools t...

Re: CPDT

Keep track of the hours you're doing - each hour of classes or private consultation. The hours are simply hours you've worked (with owners and people, not shelter dogs!) not hours you've worked as a certified trainer. So you don't have to be certified for the 300 hours (I thought it was 500, but I c...

Re: OFFICIAL e-collar debate thread

Fact: Dogs are pack animals. Well, no, that's not a fact. Yes, we once thought that was true, but we know it isn't anymore. For some reason some self-proclaimed experts are having a hard time letting go of the idea, but the fact is actually that animal behavior is a science that we are still learni...

Re: Liberty on the Homefront

Five years ago today I cried when I said Goodbye to Oscar on my way to work, because it was his last morning as an only dog. That night I brought home a terrified, shut down, and miserable little red pit bull. She had to be carried outside to go to the bathroom for six weeks. She wouldn't move more ...

Re: I need guidance with aggressive behavior.

You need an expert, and not one who will be scared of or punish your dogs!
