Re: Dominating, non-affectionate puppy?

Sorry I just had to reiterate what others have said about not turning the dog over on your lap. That is a seriously threatening behaviour that you pup would find very frightening and I am not surprised it was growling and biting at you. Dogs kill by attacking/ripping out the soft stomach of other an...

Re: hip dysplasia

My dog had signs of HD when I bought her home at 9 weeks. The main sign was a swinging rear end. Like a real obvious swinging of her butt. Mind you I think she deals with it better than dogs who develop it later in life because she has always had to live with it. Her HD has caused other issues like ...

Would recommend these ones.
Dont come in blue anymore only in brown.
Very durable, never seen one break and I have behavioural trainer friends who use them with very large dogs.

Re: Halp ! And Hey Ho !

:goodpost: Unfortunately because they look bad ass isn't really a great reason. You need to actually like the temperament and behavioral traits of the breed as well. Maybe do some research into the breeds history, what its temperament is like, what sort of exercise and other requirements the breed h...

Re: yawning around baby - should i be worried? (w/video link

Agree with placing the camera down further away. My dog Phoenix sometimes licks although fairly rarely and she generally does it when she is sleepy. Re: The play bow you say Wesley is doing. There are several meanings for them the first is a signal that the dog wants to play, the second is a calming...

Re: yawning around baby - should i be worried? (w/video link

He appears conflicted. Interested, but most definitely not comfortable. It's tough to tell since he's not in much of the video, but his stance does appear as though he is rocked backwards with the bulk of his body being held away from the baby. His ears are pinned, looked as though there was a hint...

Re: Sonny's watering, still...but even worse

I'm sure you have searched the internet, I found this article about Ptyalism (Hypersalivation) When the vet checked Sonny did he do a examination of this teeth, gums and throat? http://www.petplace.com/dogs/ptyalism-hypersalivation-in-dogs/page1.aspx Thanks Patty, that's interesting.

Re: I need help not a bashing

Personally I love the look of the ears cropped, in saying that I still quite like natural ears as well.

But I do get why some people are against it as well.

He looks gorgeous!

Re: Our Vet Visit came up with an issue.

What the. Based on those pics she looks probably a little too bulky. Maybe your vet needs glasses or he is used to those whale Pitts that get around. My girl is 16 months and its only been the last few months she has actually started bulking up and stopped looking like a whippet. Mind you she is tal...

Toning and Building Muscle

Hi All, Ok so Phi is over 12 months now (she is actually 15 months) and has finally started to put on some bulk rather than looking like a bloody Whippet X. Pictures of her now http://www.dogforum.com.au/attachments/bsl-dog-legislation/7158d1323987759-amstaff-x-logan-city-phi-daisy-hill.jpg http://w...

Re: Found this guy today...

^^^ Agree with the post above about making sure you take all the right steps. Call local Animal Control and report him as found, call the local Humane Society, take an add out in the paper, whatever you can and keep records on everything. I am sure you saw what happened with MrGrimm and the pup he s...

Re: Good Lord, anything else at this time?

My heart is breaking for you and Zoe, it skipped a beat or two when I read that she was scheduled for euthanasia. I am very sorry Val, you have really had a hard time recently and no one should have to go through what you (or Libby) have in such a short span of time. You did your very best for her a...

Re: Petella Luxation

I would highly recommend you see a Chiropractic vet (as in a qualified vet who is also a qualifiedchiropractor, not just a vet and not just a chiro). And see if an exercise plan and hydrotherapy could work,for your dog. My now 4yo dog (30kilo ridgie x) had luxatting patellas on both sides, she had s...
