Re: Fish oil for behavior

I haven't read all of the posts, but keep up the convo! I want to read as much as I can. Our appointment with the vet behaviorist is set for two weeks from now. The dog is still settling in, and his issues seem to be lessening with every day.

Fish oil for behavior

I've been reading about fish oils helping children with ADHD with their behavior issues, and I recall reading somewhere that this can affect dogs, too. What kind of fish oil, how much, and when for a 6 year old dog (about 60 pounds) with anxiety/fear aggression issues? We will be working with a vet ...

Re: AKC debut and new title (Malinois)

Congrats to the beautiful girl! I had to laugh about the video because I have one that's similar on it was a soggy stuffy being shoved into my friends face while she was trying to sleep.

I've heard that copper rings dropped in helps.

Re: Anyone in the South MS area that can mentor?

What kind of sports do you want to do with your dogs? I'm a member of the recently created Dock Dogs group for the LA, MS, AL coastal areas, and they just had a competition in Montgomery, AL. You can find them on facebook at Delta Dock Dogs. There's also an agility club here (New Orleans), and a lot...

Re: table help

Is it mandatory that tables have carpet or non-skin surface? Because the local place that I use just has smooth plywood and the dogs have gone so fast that even slamming into a down causes them to skid from the momentum.

Re: Leg leaning, forceful heeling

I'd say I'm surprised at your behavior, Vin, but I'm not. I've seen that kind of childish talk from you on this forum before and I figured it all out real fast.

I'll continue making up dates!

Re: Leg leaning, forceful heeling

Surprise! I think this dog can read. I've actually been using an old car antenna as a target stick to encourage him away from my leg and click/treat whenever he gets it right. He figured out the game after the first session, but this evening he attempted biting the target stick. I played flirt pole ...

Re: Bil-Jac Dog Food

Miss Kiwi do you have any canine nutrition specific training beyond the minimum vet school requirements to graduate? I've seen you talk about nutrition a lot, but you never say how you got to know these things.

Re: Leg leaning, forceful heeling

I don't think there's anything wrong with being sick and tired of a dog trying to kill you. Concrete stairs with a concrete landing isn't all fun and games. It's down right terrifying when you live by yourself and you've got to grab onto the rail because if you break your neck no one will know until...

Re: Hog Hunting--too dangerous for rescue dogs?

No and I don't expect them to. "What one doesn't understand, one fears." Place your own dogs into a hog hunter home if it makes you happy.Not much to understand about a rescue not wanting to send their dogs to a questionable future. You know, if she wanted to hunt with her dogs, I think s...

Re: Grooming / shaving?

I had Shelby shaved because it's hot and muggy here and she was miserable inside and out. She's the kind of dog that actually gets damp around her arm pits and neck, so the hair would get all soggy and gross. After she was shaved she suddenly had tons more energy and really enjoyed being active. Abo...

Re: Leg leaning, forceful heeling

Zane is not stranger dog friendly, so he failed his SAR eval. He gets along fine with dogs much smaller, and enjoys romping around with my crew. If/when ABMC has a foster home open up and can take him, I'll let him go, but for now he's my dog. I've done some rearranging and he's fitting in nicely. O...

Re: Leg leaning, forceful heeling

I got him from the shelter, so I have no idea what happened to him beyond the fact that he was picked up as a stray and his loser 'owner' said several times he was coming to pick him up but never showed. I was told by a cop that was at the shelter wanting Zane for himself that the owner claimed the ...

Re: Leg leaning, forceful heeling

I've had him for just over a month. I not shoving him away just because. I'm doing it so I don't break my neck when he shoves me down the stairs.
