If he still won't get in with the peanut butter trick (I've known a few dogs who won't), then try backing up another step. Try getting him used to the tub before you turn on the water, give him a treat, jump out. Then turn the water on, treat, jump out, and just slowly build up until he's taking the...

I use a doggie backpack when I walk Piper, and it's a really great too for tiring her out. Definately check out the sticky. :thumbsup:

Both of our dogs do that to the cats when they're playing. We call it "givin' 'em lovins'."

The cats are usually less amused. :twisted:

What a sweet face. I wish I could take him-I need a new project dog, but I don't think the landlord would go for it. He's really tugging at my heart strings, though. I've looked at his picture about 6 times since I first saw it a couple of hours ago. Poor baby. Good luck with your decision, sometime...

What do you feed? I've found that on certain foods, my dogs' coats smell differently-maybe he's on a food his body doesn't like?

Getting vaccinated for kennel cough is also kinda like people getting vaccinated for the flu-it covers the animal for the worse/most common forms of the bug, but there are other forms out there that aren't covered. Immune systems in older dogs also tend to be a little weaker, and sometimes the vacci...

I like CS as a dog food over all, but you should be aware that they did recall their puppy and kitten foods a few weeks ago (not sure if it was the hard or soft or both?). Otherwise, I have no qualms against feeding it-it's what I usually feed my fosters because it's cheap but still of reasonably go...

I see shepard/pittie, too. She doesn't look to me like a bait dog. My hometown was a bit of a dump site for the fighting rings in the cities, and I am would have to say I agree with Amy-if she had been a bait dog, there'd be a lot less of her. If she's really hot like you describe, it could be that ...

"Soliciting" as in trying to adopt out, or "soliciting" as in trying to get people to surrender? If they were tyring to get people to give them dogs, then, yeah, I'd be a bit suspicious. But I know several foster families who post their fosters on craigslist to try and get more i...
