Re: Aggression issue with Will

And even if I try and set up a situation for us to work on it he doesn't always decide to guard. Whereas he's previously multi-bit and shaken, and in a different setting, bit through one of those same plates before To work on resource guarding properly means that the dog does not start guarding.If ...

Re: Low Fat Food Choices

I don't think it is off topic, there are info that concern IBD in dogs and diet/foods. Being on the same boat, thanks for taking the time to type some extra info and links, LMW.

Re: hi from northern il

Their doggy daycare/kennel prohibits pitbulls. Considering the overall lack of knowledge of canine behavior and common sense that many of their employees display around dogs , along with the company "training" material....it is better that way. Cassie, got your other PM.Will be back later...

Re: Low Fat Food Choices

PS Prednisone is known to cause pancreatitis, along with antibiotics. Unfortunately a lot of these "modern" medicines work against the third law of physics which states that for every action there is an equal and opposite action. Every medication creates motion and the "equal and opp...

Re: Fear Aggression Help

Secondly and lastly he has a very hard time with strangers approaching him. People seem to think either crouching down to his eye sight or putting their hand in his face for him to smell are the best approaches. Unfortunately they seem to be his biggest triggers. He has growled then nipped the hand...

Re: Low Fat Food Choices

Hi Pitbull-lady. I also looked at a several kinds of low fat kibble, or diets, when my Tux had an attack of pancreatitis and tets and biopsies determined that he has IBD. He was on Horizon Amicus senior and weight magament for a while, which I really liked due to the fact that the company has its ow...

Re: Duke Behavior Thoughts?

So, assuming everyone wasn't hustle and bustling around, being around a group of people doesn't necessarily have to be stress causing for Duke, does it? He is your typical pit attention whore licking everyone butt wagging. I don't think that increases his stress level but am I reading the situation...

Re: Negative Reinforcement

Pushing down on a dog's butt until he sits? I have a really hard time separating positive punishment from negative reinforcement because in most cases at least SOMETHING is added to the dog in order to create the opportunity to take it away...so for example if you're using a shock collar to train a...

Re: Duke Behavior Thoughts?

I think you clearly recognized what your mistakes were, which is good, and you want to keep them in mind and avoid them in the future.The dog let you know he was uncomfortable in some ways, you picked up on it, from a couple of sentences typed. Put him away after a small successful interaction, and ...

Re: Cyclosporine for IBD

Thanks again, Jazzy. The compounding pharmacy my vet clinic is familiar with (they find the company reliable and never had issues), was suggested because of the dosage they are thinking to start Tux on. Atopica, which is what I would naturally think about when talking cyclosporine for dogs, is not a...

Re: Cyclosporine for IBD

Beware the generic and compounded cyclosporine. The drug has to be in micro emulsion form to be absorbed well, so other forms of cyclosporine require completely different dosing and may not be effective. I ended up not ordering on friday, for the same reason.It is this pharmacy by the way: http://w...
