Re: Hello: -)

They get a few weeks behind at times and then play catch up all at once getting all the new members approved for full access.

We are getting cute puppy overload lately. Tobee's white face is awesome.....I prefer the look of white pits the best, then blues.....he's got the best of both going on.

Re: Isit ok to take my 6 month old pup trail hiking?

Have you done this hike before? Has he been on shorter hikes before? If not, I would say leave him at home for sure. Get a better idea of how things go so you will know for next time, and get him accustomed to hiking. If you have, you need to think a lot about exactly what the hike involves and your...

Re: Thompson Manitoba

Their by-laws are available on their town website. Ownership of pits is against their by-laws. Could be like a lot of small towns where it was added to the by-laws back in the 70's or 80's by narrow-minded people and it just gets ignored entirely now. Wouldn't hurt to call them and ask.

Re: whining - excited/dominant dog

Is it possible that in some way the routine itself is part of the issue? It might be worth a try switching it up to some degree to see if it changes this behaviour. Things like grabbing the leash while he is still crated seems like it is getting him excited and then confused as to why you've indicat...

Re: Killing Our pets with every meal.....

IMO one of the best values for the money is Kirkland (costco). I know some people have soured on it in recent years due to a recall for salmonella contamination. It is unfortunate that it happened, but at the same time it gave them a reason to re-evaluate their processes and fix issues. The reality ...

Re: Killing Our pets with every meal.....

Good? Really? How did you come up with that list? It looks like the list was made up of foods that didn't contain any pentobarbital residue in the survey done by the FDA. Kind of odd that the test was only done on the low end grocery store foods. Unless of course those are the only foods of concern.

Re: Partially deaf???

I know you have to use some type of sign language with him but is socializing with other dogs or people going to be near to impossible? I have two other dogs and if I have to keep them all in separate rooms and crates I will. I just want to make sure I do everything I can to keep everyone safe and ...

Re: Winter/Cold Weather Shampoo Recommendations?

Mine also does not get bathed in winter. No reason to, since it's hard to get covered in mud in -20c :)

Her skin and coat are awesome at this time of year.

Re: Destroying toys

When you say any sort of bone, I just want to make sure you've tried marrow bones, raw meaty bones and bully sticks. Mine isn't a huge chewer but she absolutely loves all of the above, the marrow bones especially. She will work on them for a long time even after all the marrow is gone. I didn't even...

Stuffed Kong on raw diet?

Didn't come up with anything searching here or Google, may not be using the right terms or something. I am thinking of switching Iris to a raw or barf diet. The local coop always has stuff like beef organs and chicken necks cheap, I can get also get bones and scraps from a couple butchers for free. ...

Meeting on leash vs off leash, dealing with the unleashed

I will add background but to cut right to the point of what I am wondering: why does the leash trigger a negative response when meeting other dogs? So I've had Iris for well over a year now and have slowly gotten a pretty good handle on her leash reactivity. After I adopted her, her reaction to seei...

Re: Dog interaction

Ironic timing, I was thinking of asking basically the same question. I've had my girl a year and she's always been reactive to other dogs. We've made great strides in moving past chained or fenced dogs with little fuss while dogs being walked or roaming free continue to get tantrums out of her. I wo...
