i would really REALLY reccommend goughnuts.
my local pit bull rescue group has a sweet old man dog in their foster care right now, and he chews through black kongs no problem. i bought him a black goughnut a couple weeks ago, and it's still in one piece!! :thumbsup:

Lua, I use hickory hammer handles to make break sticks, and they seem to work well. (most people carry them as a precaution only, but i know of one that was acctually used. and it worked!) They're super simple to make, but if you don't want to make one you can contact Hugabull (http://www.hugabull.c...

Re: Raw food transition question

Raw is not for everyone, and is rarely done right in my experience. you're right. raw isn't for everyone. i completely agree 100%. there are a lot of people that just jump right in without doing much (if any) research, and that often does more harm than good. (i'm not picking on anyone here, it's j...

maggie sleeps on her bed, on the floor in my bedroom.
if it's very cold, or if one of us is sick, she'll climb up on the bed with me.

ME, your dogs don't get diarrhea from pork? I have always wanted to feed it to Logan and Molly but am afraid because I heard it caused diarrhea. :dunno: maggie LOVES pork. pork hocks are her favourite, and the skin's pretty tough so it gives her a good workout trying to get through it lol if it's t...

maggie developed a limp last year. i rested her, and her limp got better. then it got quite a bit worse, so i took her to the vets. she was prescribed an anti-inflamitory and she got better. but it was up and down constantly, so eventually i got referred to a specialist. he x-rayed maggie again (she...

I tried to feed smelt and then I had some defrosting smelt on my living room floor... lol maggie LOVES smelt. i get frozen lake smelt fro...

i have a dogloo that i bought for maggie's TPLO recovery. without it, i'd have to take her out of my condo, down the elevator, out the front doors, then either up on a 2ft raised flowerbed, or a longer walk down some stairs to the grass. she can't do either right now. so i got the dogloo, and it's a...

personally i wouldn't. from a dorky physics point of view, that's a lot of leverage on the dogs neck/spine. if the dog picks up something heavy, that's one thing, but to have a dog repeatedly pick up a heavy object in a game of fetch just might throw things out of whack. from a practical point of vi...

light slaps to the @ss trigger zoomies in this household.
even for the dog.

i'm pretty sure that if i caught maggie doing something bad, and slapped her @ss, she'd think i was playing, then race around the room. lol

not particularly effective correction in my opinion.

i use the pedipaws thing and don't have a problem with it. but i don't let the nails grow long to begin with. a few nights a week i'll sit down and do maggie's nails while i watch tv. that way i don't have a lot to grind down. i can see how the pedipaws thing would be under-powered and frustrating i...

I put a shock collar i tried with winston on my self first, and it doesn't hurt whatsoever on the top setting, just tingles. so what is so wrong with them? it's not the tool itself that many people take issue w...
