Re: Biking with your bully

my girl loves going for a ride/run next to me with my walky dog. I have some gorilla tape on the post and you have to have it really tight....the attachment and the post, when she gets a squirl in her sights you have to be ready. I didn't trust the blue rope it came with so I replaced it with a piec...

agreed! however I know she like other dogs, just not when they are getting the human attention...I believe we can change that behavior.

Re: rescued great dog, she just need a little guidance

:goodpost: This...one of the best things I've learned from this forum is that you can't just tell them no. You have to give them something positive to do instead, like holding a "focus" or "sit/stay" or "down/stay" while you pat another dog on the head once or twice, t...

Re: rescued great dog, she just need a little guidance

8 month update: the whole family is absolutely in love with Lilly, I have installed an invisible fence in my 1/2 acre back yard and she has been trained on it and respects the boundary quite well. she is a great dog and very intelligent. She is still very "puppy" and wants to play at all t...

Re: rescued great dog, she just need a little guidance

I thought since it's been a couple of months now since we took her home it was time for an update. She has really settled in nicely with the family. she is still jumping up when we enter the house, but the "be a tree" method is working....she's not completely broken of the bad habit but it...

41lb femal pit mix feeding amount

we are transitioning our 41lb femal from blue buffalo to Kirkland. both bags say for her size she should be between 2.5 - 3 cups per day, we feed her twice a day and give her ~1.5 cups at each meal. she immediatly scoffs it down, and is always looking for more. I know that 2.5-3 is the guidline, but...

Re: rescued great dog, she just need a little guidance

Chances are with what you've described, you're not looking at clinical separation anxiety. True separation anxiety comes with a whole host of difficult symptoms, most commonly extreme vocalization, stress induced elimination upon being left alone, pre-depature pacing and stress panting, and refusal ...

Re: rescued great dog, she just need a little guidance

Just scratching at the door and general anxiety when we leave, followed by overwhelming excitement when we return....(Jumping...going nuts). I suspect this will get better with time, It's been so long since my Rottie was a pup that I can't remember how long it took him to settle down. as far as a &q...

Re: rescued great dog, she just need a little guidance

I think you are correct, I will take it a little slower. I can't expect everything in a few weeks. most of the other dogs we walk with are not leash dogs, they are with their owners 24/7 and well behaived and trained. they live in a rural area and have never known a leash. I can't expect them to hav...

Re: rescued great dog, she just need a little guidance

the other dogs are off leash, it will never work with one dog on the leash! I've tried...the other dogs want her to play and stay right by her and she will pull as hard as she can to run with them... I could leave a leash on her to get a hold on her should a situation arrise.

I posted this in Introductions, but now that I can post everywhere I guess this is the appropriate place for it. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-QVJUch9KRBQ/Twrr7EK0KyI/AAAAAAAACdw/rsQE0aYTW4Y/s912/2012-01-07_21-35-05_715.jpg https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-n2PkSk0FsRM/TwrrHqPpq0I/AAAAAAAACcQ/...
