I don't see any aggressive issues here. Seems to me like this dog does not know her rules and limitations. Applying NILIF would be key to your relationship with her. Nothing In Life Is Free has helped my dog realise that whatever I say or want goes. Read the article. It's a sticky on the top of the ...

If you can, try taking her to the new place before you move. Go there once a day for about a week, let her walk around the house, then go back home.

I did that when I moved and my dog didn't feel a thing.

Based on my knowledge, they do not do it in Canada. You might want to wait for one that is close to where you are and drive down the states.

Your dog has to be 18 months old though!

What the ladies are mentioning should be considered. You have to figure out if it's an actual growl or a grumble. If it's a grumble, then its almost 100% that the dog is asking for attention. My dog always grumbles and talks smack when I am ignoring her. In terms of exercise, I will use my dog to co...

Amm, I don't like muzzles unless it was the law really. What if Dylan got attacked and had no way to defend himself? That would suck! DA dogs can be managed, but you got to be experienced and ready for those unexpected lunges. You could be walking Dylan and the other dog fine one sec, then one dog s...

She is adorable and looks like my little disaster.

Paris's weight fluctuates as well between 37 and 41. She is two years old almost.

Your dog looks like she is in very good shape. I can see some ribs and it looks like she gets exercise.

To start, I want you to know that I strongly believe in the alpha role concept. Do you use NILIF in your house. Nothing In Life Is Free is basically what it sounds like. Your dog has to work for EVERYTHING. Some people might find it extreme but that is how I do it in my house. She has to sit for EVE...

I'm sure it hurt some, he just didn't seem to be bothered with it. But in his case, I did it because it couldn't be any more painful than having torn nails all the time from running around. I tried everything to get the quicks to recede and nothing ever worked. I couldn't have him tearing nails jus...

Do NOT get the surgical procedure done. Cutting the quick in the nails opens a direct venous route for bacteria to get to the bone of the toe. Infections are rare with this procedure, but when they occur, they can result in SERIOUS infections that may lead to amputation of the toe. Unless your dogs...

Yeah I do that but it doesnt work. They are still extremely long AND I use the dremmel too. I just called my vet and they told me there is a procedure done under GA. They just cut the nails pretty short which draws back the vein.

What do you think of that?

He was really really hyper today, is that usually a side effect from being kinda tired from shots the day before? Yeah slapping his butt makes him play more. Def. doesn't work.
