Re: Tricolor Girl Needs Home!

Just a suggestion: better pictures (these are cute but they need to really be flashy/crazy cute) and a super good bio. She's pretty.

Re: Fanny the Granny...OREGON

Violet, I did not forget about her or you... I'm working on alternate arrangements since my 'foster' has vanished.

I'm hoping I can switch someone else out of another home and her into it.

Re: Leather Collars and Leads

Hmmm... can you do an 8' lead with a handle built in at 5'? I need it for agitation work and wrapping the leash around my waist and trying to hold it that way did nothing but shred my waist and hand. I'd like 8' b/c then I can wrap it around, still have the handle to hold on the right side but also ...

Re: Mean in our yard?

I just re read the 'other dog issue' and it's not what I was thinking... you need to call and file reports with animal control and the police. If this doesn't work, the dogs disappear. Push your city/town council to start addressing the problem b/f some little kid gets torn up by trying to break up ...

Re: Mean in our yard?

Hmmm... could go a couple ways with the loose dog. I think when I saw the loose one approach, I'd just start chucking treats. No words, just treats, depending on how motivated he is to bypass dog charging for food. Make it really good food - maybe sardines in oil or something. I've not called mine t...

Re: Mean in our yard?

Sorry, trying to add... have people help you with this in small steps. Don't leave him outside when you're not out there with him. Have people ring the doorbell or knock, then treat him. Don't make a big deal about it, when you hear the knock, toss the cookie. Keep doing it and eventually phase it o...

Re: Mean in our yard?

It's territorial behavior and, in my experience, if not dealt with in the yard, it will escalate. I am not a fan of it and deal with it accordingly at home - mine aren't left to their own devices where they'd feel the need to become territorial. I have worked with neighbor dogs or other area dogs wh...

Re: Fanny the Granny...OREGON

I actually MAY have a perm home for her but she'd need to be exceptional with cats - the foster doesn't have cats. Anyone, know how she is with cats? I see that it said she likes to chase but what does that look like, exactly? Is it manageable, interested, or hungry? ;) Oh, what about tiny 4lb. dogs...
