Re: 2 Dogs and a Baby - advice needed

Thank you. I crated her and gave her a bone that kept her busy for a few hours. She is back crying behind the gate now. I worry about her getting a bad association with babys because I am either telling her to back away, or keeping her separate from the rest of the family.

They seemed to understand if I wanted them I turn left or right, but turning around, or stopping, going faster, well have to work on :) I try go keep her on a short leash...

Re: Biking with your bully

My other smaller pitbull ( 42 pounds ) was a little freaked out, and wanted to walk behind me, almost at the very end of the bike where's could not see her at al...

I use an easy walk harness, so when they start focusing in on a dog, I say " pass by". If there in " stalker" mode and focusing in I stop the leash, just to get there attention, as it's attached o there chest area anyway. If they do well, they get a treat, if they do bad, they si...
