Re: Success! From frenemies to bffs!

I see what you're saying, and I've heard of other people using that technique with the muzzles...I'm not confident it would be very "telling" with Veronica because she is so reactive. She's not aggressive. She doesn't want to hurt other dogs, but she gets so over-aroused so easily that it...

Re: B.A.R.F. 101

Where do you pick up boneless trim? I mean this dog will eat raw chicken breast, and raw stew beef, and loves his raw bones....especially parading in front of the cats with them. In all honesty i think it is the texture of the ground up stuff that he hates and the smell of the veggies. i don't feed...

Re: B.A.R.F. 101

Re: B.A.R.F. 101

that was a good description :) I hope that helps. I know I have found myself frustrated over time because it seems no one is willing to kind of spell out what they are feeding and it really does depend on the dog and how their system is and poop is. it really does depend on the dog. i find that chic...
