Re: Fear or aggression?

my dog doesn't like meeting new people when he has things behind him (like in an entrance way wall or a couch or a chair. He is fine if I am behind him, but if he doesn't have a quick escape route if he needs it, he is very stiff and not as approachable. In addition to what others said you might wan...

Re: Good Shampoo?

Re: Bad digestive track possibly?

I had the problem with my boy and after 2 years of trying to narrow down his problems he was bad on mixed meat kibbles and anything besides chicken. Each dog is different, but have you thought of going grain free? the Blue Buffalo Wilderness is the one I finally found that worked with my dog. I just...

Re: Our Vet Visit came up with an issue.

Yeah we are switching to blue buffalo. We bought some yesterday, and mixed a little with her other kibble, and I gave her a few peices as treats on our run this morning, and she loved it. So I have a feeling she will do well with it. did you go with the Wilderness? If you are thinking of going raw ...

Re: Our Vet Visit came up with an issue.

I had my vet tell me to put my boy on a diet and then 3 months later tell me maybe he could gain a pound or two. Jeesh make you your mind dude!! I agree with everyone above, as long as your dog is acting normal and doesn't get too tired easy or what not I would keep her like she is. But get her on s...

Re: elevated feeder

wow great job! Looks awesome and I love the picture of her patiently waiting to eat :)

I have also heard that an elevated bowl can cause issues, especially Bloat, just something to keep your eye out for.

Re: found out something new about my baby.....good or bad id

why not take him to a tennis court or some other park NOT designated for dogs? or a basketball court? Kids play ground while they are in school? anything fenced in and NOT designated for dogs. Socializing your pup does not mean you have to have your pup meet other dogs. IMO Dog parks are for lazy ow...

Re: Healthy House Cleaning (Long but food for thought)

thanks for the ideas and the links, I also heard vinegar. The thing is though, I thought Borax was poisonous to animals? (case in point when my grams had an ant problem I sprinkled it around and the ants died pretty fast, if you use it as a cleaner, and its supposed to be sweet smelling, couldn't th...

Re: My arms are sore!

I had a similar problem, but once my boy was neutered he was able to focus more intently and listen easier it seemed, like his focus could be more directed at listening to me than marking everything we passed. I used this for a while, but didn't like the lack of security, so some people use this wit...

Re: Greetings from Tonka in Minnesota
