Re: Favorite tickle spot- but is the reaction normal?

Paver does it, when you do it to my Mals they sing, grunt and groan, and chatter at the air. Other than that I have no advice or answer...lol

Re: When should i switch 2 adult kibbel ?

absolutely you can!!! My younger dogs started RAW as soon as they got here, I tried doing the puppy food, but it was too much work, it was easier for me to feed them RAW like the older dogs. :thumbsup:

Re: "Dogs need by products"-Vet

Yeesh - sorry. There I go. I just feel so passionately about this issue. I absolutely respect (most) vets. They have a great deal of very expensive education and (most) care passionately about animals. I absolutely defer to their expertise and experience when my pets are ill or injured. But I do no...

Re: Chino's obesity. (pictures this time)

She has a bit of trouble with her jaws and teeth when it comes to eating, she's got the under bite typical to the breed but her teeth don't line up as well as they should so she has a little trouble keeping a hold of and chewing some foods, she has the most trouble with small sized food be it kibbl...

Re: Question for schutzhund people

well, I do push them, and tap them around the body area, but not in the face, I don't want any dog come off the bite to nail me, especially my Mals, who are much more temperamental then my bulldogs. A lot of times, what you see when playing tug with a dog that's doing bite work, is there is a lot of...

Re: Chino's obesity. (pictures this time)

did you have her thyroid checked? I am not sure what to tell you, other than reduce food, and increase exercise. I don't do dog parks, nor do I recommend it for any bull breed. Try hand walking her, or swimming, low impact, but a good work out.

My vet has never said that, or any other vet I have dealt with. American Bulldogs, aren't any different than any other breed of dog when it comes to obesity issues. They have a thick build naturally, which is a desired trait. What are you feeding?

Re: Feeding Raw

Something else Vin, that I really think should be touched on in this thread, is the importance of feeding more than one protein source, or having a variety in the diet. It's ok to have chicken as your base diet, chicken liver, hearts, necks, legs, backs, thighs, etc. But, I want to stress the import...

Re: Leg leaning, forceful heeling

I am pretty sure Vin knows that. Redux does the lean in, he has always been a closer is better dog. Yes at times it works my nerves. But I just use it to my advantage, being in tight crowds, etc.
