Re: Cats with Napoleon syndrome

Thanks Amie! Benny is curious, but Tango definitely likes to egg him on. He also liked to pick on our male greyhound, and it got to the point where the greyhound wouldn't come into the room if he could see Tango. It mostly happens when I'm taking Benny from the bedroom, through the living room to go...

Re: Cats with Napoleon syndrome

Does this mean that I'm the only person on this forum with an evil cat? Can't be!

Re: For the Pill-Popping Dogs

Jenna and mtlu - what is the vit-C/ester-C for? We currently have Benny on MSM in the am and salmon oil 2x/day along with an adequan shot once a month for his pelvic problems. I think I may start giving Benny kelp if it helps with the coat. His coat is a bit greasy feeling and coarse and my fingers ...

For the Pill-Popping Dogs

What supplements/vitamins do you give your dog(s) and why? Do you feed raw or kibble, and do you think that affects what supplements you give?

Cats with Napoleon syndrome

Alrighty, so Benny is interested in the cats, and we're taking things really slowly. One of our cats, Cheese, either stays where he is when he sees Benny or hides, making him completely uninteresting to Benny. Our other cat, Tango, however, thinks he's a badass. He puffs up as soon as Benny comes wi...

Re: Pulling on walks

Chewbecca you rock! I've been doing the method that you describe and it seems to be working. Granted, I've only done it last night and tonight, but the progress so far is amazing! Of course, in my method involves numerous treats. lol It helps that I'm as stubborn as he is. I've been doing the traini...

Re: Pulling on walks

Thanks for the replies! Amie- I started reading that thread, but I really don't like the "pop" concept as portrayed by the OP. I'll have to finish reading the whole thing. I've also read the "head collar" thread, but am considering starting with an Easy Walk harness. If that does...

Pulling on walks

We have a foster boy, Benny, who was with a rescue for 1.5 years prior to us fostering and he knows basic commends, although he likes to pretend that he doesn't. He has a stubborn streak but has figured out that I do too. lol We did the 2 week lock down and he has learned to listen to me and is usua...

Re: Foster homes and cat problems

I have a foster boy (American Bulldog/APBT) who doesn't appear to show aggression around my cats, but is definitely interested. He got a little too close to my "King of the House" cat, who decided to give Benny a nice swat across the nose. We're currently at the end of the first week of th...

Re: Tugs

Oh dang, I meant to say 3 things. I was thinking of when I braid my hair, but for some reason I was under the belief it was only 2 pieces. :oops:

Also, can I have tickets to the spin-off?

Yeah, your lead was actually one of the ones I was interested in. I need to see if instant gratification is possible though. :))

Leash that attaches to human too

Hey - Can anyone recommend a good leash that would hook up to both myself and the dog? I was putting the leash around my waist, but Benny's a heckuva a puller and it felt like the leash was going to snap me in half. I found one by RuffWear, but the leash part is too long. I need that to be no more t...
