ok, for the people who fast. How do you do it? do you give them chicken broth or something? is there any special thing i should do? When I fast the dogs I make sure they have a calm lounging day. Like the race horses, the dogs are off on Sundays unless a special event. If there is a special event, ...

I have always believed in fasting once a week as well, especially on the Raw diet. This day of digestive rest gives the body time flush itself and replenish the bacteria, as well as giving a probiotic weekly/every few days. On the day of fasting the dogs I give them a raw meaty bone for them to chew...

I have a question. Any vet I have called says they will not treat or do surgery on any pets without currents vaccinations. Is there any way to get around that? My cat Punkin Pie ended up getting a tumor that was related to a vaccination she had so she gets an exception. I don't want to vaccinate my...

Oh wait what about eggplant? I have never actually bought one but they look interesting and I keep wanting to get it in order to disect it :crazy: just to see what it looks like. And since I won't eat it I might as well feed it to the dogs if they can have it. :))

I give three weeks of no contact or maybe contact through a child gate near the end of the three weeks. During that time you will be allowing the new pup/dog to settle in, bond with you and not the other dog, and it is sufficant time for both dogs to get used to the smell, noise and demenor of the o...

First, 18 - 24 months is the beginning of full maturity, it's when the 'real' personality often emerges. Also along with just becoming mature you have to realize as well that this is the time where their hormones are out of control(granted he is neutered but they still have horomones). They are pup...

And I am not trying to be a prick but I thought Michelle said that Connor is always last? Wouldn't that be you/her asserting your dominance over him and letting him know who's in charge? No. Connor is last because we are reinforcing an artificial hierarchy among the animals , and only in the house....

I use treats in the begining but I also incorporate prey drive(tugs),touch, and verbal praise in the process. By incorporating these things together you can quickly wean the dog off treats/food and then to tugs, after that you can move onto praise by touch and verbal.

While we're at it, this "be the Alpha" crap is old news. The kind of dog I like will put you in the hospital if you try to roll him or otherwise "assert your dominance". My dog and I have mutual respect for each other, and we work as a team. Cultivate that and you will have no need to show your dog...
