Re: No-Pull harnesses

I prefer the halti. Has an extra clip to attach to your dogs collar just for safety. I read a lot about shoulder issues.. but before I bought my dog was doing well on training. He never pulled hard any more.. He pulls lightly now and a light tug at the side and he's walking fine again. Could of trai...

Re: OFFICIAL e-collar debate thread

This may be a bit random but I will no longer use an e-collar due to newer information but first and foremost because of... I've seen 2 dogs get tumors (end up turning to cancer) in their throats after wearing an e-collar on and off for about 6 months and die... not fun.. could be complete coinciden...

Re: Socializing a Dog in a "yuppy" area.. lol

Yes kind of my thoughts I was on alert the whole time. They did shortly after move around and get along. Tails wagging.. Down. He's never had that position on another dog. Not even the lab/pit mix. First visit with pit.. Sniffing then a freeze... We talked to them... Tried to keep the level low... T...

Socializing a Dog in a "yuppy" area.. lol

I live out on a golf course where people are mostly retired.. with dogs that are fluffy and small etc. I'm 30 and I'm pretty positive that I have the only pit on the whole course. All though if i wave these people happily wave back but they have no interest in trying to "meet and greet" do...

Re: Pit service dog?

Agreed... Above post I think is fairly efficient.. Considering my circumstances.. Which I really don't want to divulge in a whole lot.

Re: Pit service dog?

I agree with what your saying but if memory loss is a problem and causes me to forget my meds (weekends i've forgotten several times and i've also forgotten on a somewhat moderate basis during the week before work...

Re: "Saint" Tampa Bay Florida

Congrats! Maybe you could somehow leave a msg for the man who owned him and see if he'd still like to have the dog visit sometimes.. Being he's older and the dog was well maintained even after he left I'm sure he thinks of him daily. Just a thought. :)

Re: Pit service dog?

Don't know if the message was a joke or not lol.. About the medicine. Yeah agreed I will have to get a trainer involved at some point. Obviously heeling etc is going to be a need. I don't care about the certifications near as much as him being able to handle the exposure and remain calm. Isn't there...
