Re: Feeding Raw

this may be a little off topic...but, Vin you mentioned using coconut oil, and so have others. Would you mind sharing the advantages of using it? And where to get it?

I am the queen of cheap....just start looking, and emailing, and asking places. Something will come threw. Just give it time, and keep searching.

Re: Bil-Jac Dog Food

it's interesting, because all of the local vets around here are no longer or discontinuing carrying Science Diet, and replacing it with high end foods like Blue Buffalo. Apparently they all agree also, that Science Diet is crap. :thumbsup:

Re: Feeding Raw

Personally I look at it as "it could be worse" and at least the dogs are adopted and being fed. Some people cannot afford raw (yes, I know the stats but places like vegas make life much harder to feed raw, much more expensive) or acana, etc, but that doesn't make them less than perfectly ...

Re: Feeding Raw

Vin, I had a foster dog that just didn't get eating the whole rabbit thing...so we ended up chopping it into chunks, he ate the crap out of the heads. :huh?: He was a strange creature. The rest of the dogs generally start at the head and grind their way down. As far as freezing goes, to be honest, t...

Re: Feeding Raw

PM77-The pieces that the Mal and Paver have look big in comparrison to what lilangel is feeding. Is that because you're not giving all of the extras that he gives his dogs? Or is that not something they'll finish in one sitting? When I can get my hand on carcasses, then that is what is fed till it'...

Re: Feeding Raw

I don't do veggies...I just do prey model. However supplement wise, they get super fuel, ACV, Solid Gold Seameal and Flax, Salmon oil, and a joint supplement. I find heads to be the best source of a good mental work out, think of a puzzle for dogs. :thumbsup: there's a Mal in there somewhere...lol h...

Re: Heads Up UKC weight pullers...

I would just talk to your other club members, and see if they would be interested in hooking up with the IWPA, it's worth a shot. I know there are hopes the UKC will come around, and change things. But, to me it seems like it's just a grim outlook.

Re: Heads Up UKC weight pullers...

they took the competition away, and any hopes of people wanting to be competitive away. I can send you the IWPA website link, if you want to review it, it's a little different as far as rules go. People will be paying in excess of two thousand dollars for a title in the UKC...sigh.

Re: Heads Up UKC weight pullers...

I agree Val. It's just silly. The IWPA isn't a horrible org. to pull with, or at least out here on the east coast it isn't. Could that be a option for you guys?

Re: Do you use treats to train your dog?

in the beginning I use food as a reward, and start to ween them off of it, and replace it with a ball, or tug. Food rolls, or freeze dried tripe is the best!

Re: Hog Hunting--too dangerous for rescue dogs?

Ideally that is how people hunt; Ethically. I can't speak for hog hunting (since I don't participate), but we do pest control/GTG with Rosen (and have with all past terriers). The dogs are trained and protected, if they are injured they are immediately treated in the field and go directly to the ve...
