It sounds as if you are catering to your pup. So... I would honestly have to say you are making it worse. Just because you may not go to her everytime she throws a temper tantrum does not mean she can not feel that you are upset about it. If you feel emotional over it she will feel that, go take a s...

I feed a 50/50 with my giant breed dogs and a 25/75 with my large breed performance dogs (kibble:meat). I feed cleaner kibbles and lots of beef. With giant breed dogs it is almost impossible to reach the dogs caloric needs on the raw diet and doing the kibble:meat is a very nice combination in my op...

I have taken in dogs that were OLD and house trained them. The best thing, like already said, is to find a schedule and keep it every day.

Yes that is how pups are. It basically sounds as if your pup is just not ready for that kind of stimuli yet. Work more one on one in a low stimuli environment. Once you have everything down there move to a little more stimulated environment, so on and so forth. Normally each environment takes about ...

Re: re

Slat mills are quite complex and unless really well built, come with a variety of possible problems. One of these is toe nails getting stuck between slats as they close up. This can be a disaster. They run easy, and are fun, but the wood is also a bit tough on the dog's feet. Carpet mills are good ...

Thank you for your help. I went out and bought a softer ball and cut the string down so I am barely able to grab it and it worked wonders. As for the out, I always jog/walk around with him carrying it. Once I am ready for the ball back I will have him sit and out but in the mean time, I am constantl...

roflmao I guess this is truely just personal preference because my dog wouldn't be caught dead in one of those collars or harnesses. The real simple ones don'e look as bad on a bully, but the ones that were on the site were specifically made for those dogs. I am a Neo girl myself, but am coming int...

Yeah...I have ordered a bite surface from k9toolbox and I have to say that all of their items are way overpriced. Really? I have been looking at their leashes and such which I have not found better prices yet, but harnesses I have had mine custom made by a woman in VA. I did not want to post her in...

I have been criticized many times for waiting so long to drag with my bulldog but I have held out on it for the same reasons you stated. I wish more people would realize what they are doing to the poor pups. I have had people go so far as to tell me my dog would not have any drive to pull because I ...

Oh don't get me wrong he loves it! Once he has the ball - string - he will immediately get animated, prancing and chewing until the ball is in his mouth and he is happily knawing away. It is just the initial bite, always going for the easiest part, the string. I am trying to get into something that ...

I am in the process of designing a treadmill and I have been debating on what kind of a belt to use. I have seen many different belts but have never had my bully on one yet. Is there a specific difference in the carpet, rubber, wood planks, etc... that anyone else has seen? Sorry, didn't mean to der...
