Re: Blue Ridge Beef - Puppy Mix (Raw)

I just got a new, unexpected, kitten. I've got him on the Blue Ridge Beef Kitten mix with a high quality kibble as well. He's doing excellent on it. Though it's only been 3 weeks.

Re: Confusing behaviour around baby

Personally, I feel strongly that you should have a behaviorist come observe this. It's way too important for anyone to diagnose over the internet. It certainly sounds like excited behavior, while it could easily be something that a little training/conditioning could resolve, I wouldn't gamble. It s...

Check out Fearful Dog Blog. The woman who writes it specializes in working with fearful dogs and knows how learning works.

Re: Help training a toy motivated dog

You can use a toy or ball to reward any behavior that you can reward with a treat. Instead of click--->treat, it's click--->toss ball, play tug whatever. The main difference is that you can't use a toy as a lure like you can with a treat. In which case capture. I'm sure at some point while you're wi...

To add to this, if he doesn't potty within a reasonable time when you come back in he's in his crate for 5-15min. No in and out, in and out.

Re: Shock Collars..?

Have you tried using a harness and long line? Or a martingale collar so she can't slip out of it? There's also the option of not giving her all that space until she learns to stay close. There's also lots of ways to exercise your dog without letting them just run. Flirt pole, in fence/ in house fetc...

Re: Aggression issue with Will

And even if I try and set up a situation for us to work on it he doesn't always decide to guard. Whereas he's previously multi-bit and shaken, and in a different setting, bit through one of those same plates before To work on resource guarding properly means that the dog does not start guarding.If ...

Re: Aggression issue with Will

Many neurology clinics will do an "industry" discount if you ask them. When my friend and fellow tech was going through neurologic issues with her dog, the vet did a consult exam for free and offered a substantial discount on the MRI. Just something to keep in mind. Also... Would your mil...

Re: Aggression issue with Will

I would seriously consider an appointment with a neurologist and an MRI. Also, see if there is a behaviorist with a veterinary background (vet/tech) in your area. Neurologist and MRI will be something to think about. Right now we're barely feeding ourselves. Getting a business started is a bit roug...

Re: Aggression issue with Will

So it could have been a reaction to the new med but the vet thinks he'll get used to it vs. it just doesn't agree with him? Seizure activity? Btw, I'm just curious on this: You said he has random resource guarding issues...does that mean that with his issues all the behavioral resource guarding int...

Re: Aggression issue with Will

That sounds really scary. I would never trust him with anyone else again. If he's unstable, he may severely injure or kill someone. :( The thing is, he's usually great with people he knows. Before the fence was finished MIL used to do his mid-day potty breaks for us. This event was/is totally out o...

Aggression issue with Will

Puzzler here, with my own dog. Back story Will is my Heinz 57 abandoned on a tree in E-Cleveland. He's fear aggressive towards strangers, but has never really had an issue with "family" my husband, my mentor/Wills trainer, and I. He's had some issues with my Mother In Law whom we live with...

Re: Dogs that bite - a debate about training or lack of

Why dogs bite 99% of the time? Because of human stupidity. Like this for example: http://www.jokeroo.com/videos/animal/dog-afraid-of-baby.html Hilarious isn't it? Idiots. That is simply terrifying all around :wow What kind of idiot would do that. Child and animal services need to be sent to that ho...
