Being flat broke sucks...but knowing and treating sure feels good doesn't it.

Blowing the bowels is the only sign Magic didn't show when I first got him 2 years ago.

It is a long process but it can be managed. It requires dedication and "tuning in". Some of the things your dog sees as cues you may not even realize unless you tune into their growing anxiety.

If the bones in the foot are broken you definitely need to get into a vet. Bones begin to heal very quickly and if they heal incorrectly the cost to repair can be quite high or the lifelong impacts can be quite painful

I agree that lots of folks tend to use the SA term too quickly. What some folks see as SA in shelter dogs is simply the process of them settling into a new home. Just remember every new home is new smells, new routines, new expectations, new people all of which increase tension. My Standard Poodle a...

Views: 314

I agree that a muzzle all the time is a bad idea...but my Poodle is a major barker when he's fired up or very anxious and doesn't respond to his commands at all. I completely by accident stumbled on the muzzle as another tool in the belt. We were going out of town and staying in a hotel. I really wa...

Boy can I identify with this. My Poodle did and still does once in a while pee on the side of my comforter...it's the only place in the house he pees. The advice given me, that worked...back to basics and practice NILIF. He lost all furniture priveleges...all..no sofa, no chair, no lap if not on the...

Scooter & Magic both pose for the camera. If Scoots sees a camera he pushes his way in to get right in the middle. http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f316/dianahal/dogs/IMG_0877.jpg http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f316/dianahal/dogs/IMG_0790.jpg http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f316/dianahal/d...

Hotwire. I don't know what brand is best, other than if you plan to use it long term, invest in a solar one instead of plug-in. That way if there's a power outage you are still okay. Run a line at nose height and one at the top of the fence or just inside the top (if neighbors might complain). One ...

SonnysMama, I'm sorry if I gave the impression that I was in any way faulting you...I certainly didn't mean to. I found it kind of interesting (read a bit disturbing) that when you asked they even said no and had you go back to the waiting room - that is such a foreign response to me. I've always be...

I have never handed off one of my dogs for anything as routine as a check up or vaccinations. So I'm surprised they had you hand off your dog. I would tell them that, in the future, you will accompany your dog ... thanks.

I use a lined harness type with a, well it looks almost like a heeling lead, that attaches into the existing seat belt and then clips onto the dogs.

I love them and wouldn't go anywhere without them.

I have a very reactive Standard Poodle. He's not particularly aggressive, but he is socially completely inept and a mega barker. Only through consistently placing him in situations where there are other dogs and I can work on his behavior have we gained ground on how to behave. So while I would tell...

Well I can't speak to Schutzhund training, but my Scooter knows when he's working and when he's not...he knows what behaviors are acceptable when and acts accordingly.
