Re: crab grass

Do they tend to have bad gas every now & then? I've read they only do it to ease an upset tummy. Maybe the protein diet they are on doesn't quite agree with their system. My dogs do the same did the same until I switched proteins. I also plan on eventually feeding raw once I learn more about it.

Bamboo

Is it safe for dogs to chew on. I've done a little research & it's listed as a safe plant. I see ppl saying it's very good for their teeth & safe, while I see others saying it's very bad, but no explanation as to why other than they can't digest it. Which has me slightly conflicted.

Re: What to look out for in a good obedience trainer?

I actually left a vm with The Obedience Training Club of Palm Beach County. Still waiting to hear a response, Jupiter isn't too far. Actually closer than Vero, where another trainer was suggested. She doesn't really seem to be on the ball with her responses. I'm suppose to have a consultation tomorr...

I've enjoyed it there a lot and will be starting a new agility class shortly. I've done Rally, Foundation, Ideal Puppy, the Reactive dog course with Radosta, and seminars. No c...

Re: What to look out for in a good obedience trainer?

Ugh, sorry about that. If someone is doing something that is upsetting your dog you are entitled to say no and leave, at any time. I e-mailed the folks in Lutz last night and I am waiting on a response. Out of curiosity, what was done to push your pup over threshold? At first she was her typical ba...

Re: What to look out for in a good obedience trainer?

Did you meet with the trainer? The folks in Lutz are really good so let me contact them and ask if they would recommend anyone that is closer to you. I did, she was horrible. Pushing lily past her thresh hold - finally let Lex (my other dog) out & she calmed right down. Then when Sean (my husba...
