My Riley had HOD as a puppy, and it's a big resposibilty. The initial illness is really painful and difficult to go through, and after it's dormant, the dog is left with permanently disfigured joints. A lot of owners/breeders recommend putting the puppy to sleep once HOD has been diagnosed just beca...

Piper Ann gets a jacket put on her whenever I wear a jacket outside-but she's got a really thin coat and is kind of a wuss. Riley gets his jacket whenever it's below freezing or when it's cold/windy out and we're going to be out for a while. I would think that if you dog doesn't seem to be bothered ...

My Riley is almost the exact same color as Emily, and he looks absolutly stunning in the HF2 (under holiday collars). But it's not purple, and it is kinda seasonal.

As far as purple goes, I think the CD134 (purple swirls) would be really sute, and the CD198 is really elegant. :thumbsup:

I don't personally own anything from them (for which I blame my poor, sad bank account), but I've heard a lot of good things about pacocollars.com . Their stuff sure is pretty if nothing else.

Piper and Riley go through the bully sticks pretty quickly, too. I've never really noticed a smell, either (at least none any worse than other raw hides)-maybe they eat them too fast to smell!

I had Riley and Piper Ann on the Wellness Core for about one bag (three weeks, give or take), and boy, I haven't disliked a dog food so much since I fed Science Diet that one time. The dogs poops were firm, but there was so much of it! Poop all the time-pretty much everytime they went outside. And ...

A lot of our local farm stores have regular cotton rope-have you tried any of those?

My dogs ate their jolly ball-but they seemed to have fun doing it! :) It's definately a fun outside toy, though. :thumbsup:

Replies: 8

We use the no-pull harnesses a lot at school for chronic pullers, and they work fairly well. I still prefer my head halters, but the harnesses have the advantage of having little-to-no adjustment period-you can basically just throw them on and go, which is definately not the case with the halters. T...

It could be either/or, or a combination of both. You could try switching the food to see if that's it-it's not like there aren't plenty of other good quality foods out there. Piper Ann usually gets flakey skin in the winter, so she gets flaxseed oil or fish oil added to her food, and that cleans up ...

I have yet to find a stuffie that will hold up to my two, so I started buying cheap instead of quality. I go to Good Will or whatever thrift store is closest and buy up a bunch of they're used kids' stuffed toys. I bring them home, throw them in the wash, cut off any plastic bits like eyes and noses...

We have a lot of puzzle toys that they get to play with in their crates in addition to the kongs (or instead, depending on how long we're gone). One of my favorites are the treat stiks ( treatstik.com ) because they're super heavy duty and if you put the right size treats in it, it'll take them fore...
