Re: Humping. "natural" behavior and to be left alone or "rud

I really appreciate all the answers! I know with Bruce, he is very non reactive to most "rude" behavior but as soon as a dog tries to hump him he will turn right around and tell him to BACK OFF :po: Because of this and other things I noticed, my initial thought was that it is not construed...

Re: Humping. "natural" behavior and to be left alone or "rud

The first search I did I came up with this recent thread on humping: http://www.pitbullforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=150491&p=1973551&hilit=Humping#p1973551" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; It pretty much explains why, and how to handle it. Thanks! My search must not have ...

Humping. "natural" behavior and to be left alone or "rude"?

Okay, so I tried searching for a direct answer and couldn't really find anything. Can a trainer or someone more well versed in dog body language tell me: if a dog A is humping dog B... should you try to get dog A to quit? Essentially, is humping "okay" dog behavior? Or is it considered &qu...

Re: List of questions and advice needed.

Okay, first of I DID try to find some information on this with the search feature, but It was pulling up random posts and not good threads :) I am having some problems I need help with and I would love the advice of my pbf family. 2) How can I teach him to stay until I give him the release command ...

Re: What's the best Dog Chew?

You could freeze kongs with peanut butter...

Have you thought of crating them? You could give them something to chew on in their crate also. This would keep them occupied and they would obviously not chew on anything other than the chew toys since they'd be in a kennel.

Just a thought. :)

Re: PJs?

Thanks for this thread!! Bruce gets extra cold in the winter and I got him a boy's hoodie at Target that I'll put on him. I don't leave it on him alone since it has a zipper... I don't want anything to happen. I'll have to get some of these for him! Here is him with his hoodie. http://i1125.photobuc...

Re: Does and has anyone used Comfortis?

Trifexis is what we use. Works for fleas and heartworms. Comfortis didnt work for us. This works great! And we are in South MS so same problems! Interesting that Comfortis didn't work because the flea preventative "ingredient" used in Trifexis is spinosad which is the same thing that is u...

Doesn't drink enough water???

So Bruce has never been one of those types of dogs that just laps up water all the time. But I feel like lately he isn't drinking water hardly at all lately. I notice that he likes drinking the water from the water bowl outside more so than the bowl inside. Which I think is weird... But more so it s...

Re: Damien has heartworms. :(

I just called around and was able to talk to 1 vet's office.
