Is this dog allowed to be with or around other dogs in a regular basis? If so get them out of the picture. I have found some dogs after being pushed around for so long will not play in the dominant dogs/persons presence.

Oh I didn't know she was that old... well not OLD but older ;) I have heard a lot of people talk about their older dogs becoming much more sensitive to noises, but I don't know if they ever tried to desensitize it or not. Working in drives, ie food drives, prey drives. If she enjoys a good game of t...

also, if you're ever in a situation where you DO have to chase/follow your dog... don't LOOK like you're chasing... follow at a slow steady even pace, almost as if you're stalking him... with a stern look on your face... that tends to confuse dogs as its not what they're expecting... frequently the...

What is rescue remedy? Could that help with fear of the vets and getting meds? Rescue Remedy is a liquid formula that some people take for mild anixety issues. It should help with fear of the vets, etc. It is fairly cheap so it is worth a shot. Isn't there alcohol in it? lol I would suggest rather ...

Have you talked to your vet about allergy testing? They should be able to do interdermal testing (or refer you to someone who can) to find out what substance your dog is allergic to.

I was just discussing this with a pathologist(I believe that is what it is called) last week :) As far as steroids in allergies go, corticosteroids suppress the immune system. So, giving steroids to animals with allergies doesn't change the allergy; it just suppresses the immune response to the alle...

Replies: 16

Another thing to think about is the fact that some dogs become more agitated by the collars. Which leads to louder, escalating barks and completely defeats the purpose. The last time I tried to get my AB to shut up - and let me tell you this dog is annoying as hell when he wants to work and other do...

My AB never humped as a young pup. The first time he did hump was around 9-10 months of age, and only a few times. He is a very dominant boy though, actually about as dominant as they come(or so I have heard lol ). A lot of the dogs that hump that I have seen were actually weaker nerved, more sensit...

Boost his confidence. Start working in drives with him. Does he like to play ball or tug? Or get a flirt pole and start with that. But this is one very sensitive sounding boy. Build his confidence.

I understand what everyone is saying here about the marking, but I always though that a dog USUALLY will not use the bathroom where they sleep?? Is this not true? It doesn't sound like he is doing an all out release. It sounds like he is marking the bed. Which I have seen dogs & wolves mark foo...

roflmao Sorry, but it brings up funny memories of when my AB peed on my fiance. After that happen the fiance was offically done training him for a while. Your boy has been claiming the bed as his and dominating you and the other dogs. I would highly suggest you keep him on the floor and not on the b...

I had to use Internet Explorer. I know there are some pages and programs that Mozilla is still not compatible with yet. So if you can not get into the collars page and are using Firefox switch to Internet Explorer :)
