They are embedded. Except the second to last one isn't there, it's just the code. Looks like you are making good progress!

Acepromazine.

I'm glad Tucker seems to have recovered from whatever freaked him out.

On the hips, the acetabulum, which is the "socket" that the head of the femur goes in, is very shallow. On a normal dog, there would be more of a lip to help hold the head in. I don't know about the knee either though...

Ok wow! I am so pround of my girl! I took her blanket into the kitchen where we train, and led her to it with the target a few times, clicking when she put all four feet on. Then I started saying "Get a life" which is going to be her cue, while leading her to the blanket, then clicking whe...

It almost sounds like she is trying to herd them by nipping at their legs. She may be mixed with some kind of herding breed. But this still isn't acceptable behavior. Maybe have the kids work with training her so she can recognize that she isn't in charge of them.

I am going to try to buy batteries today for my camera so hopefully I can get some videos. Roxy is doing the turns pretty well, but she turns kind of slowly, like she is still thinking about it the whole time. I've added cues but still need the hand signals because she hasn't really figured out left...

"Go to your bed"?

I know a lot of people have their dogs trained to go to a certain place and lie down when told, for during meals, when there are a lot of things going on, etc. I'm wondering if you can give me some suggestions on how to train my dog to do this. We are using a clicker for training right now, but I do...

Roxy sleeps in a crate in my room. When I first got her she wanted to sleep on the bed because her foster parents let her, so at first I had to lock her in her crate. But now she just sleeps in it with the door open because she knows she's not allowed on the bed anymore. Or sometimes she sleeps on m...

I put a rubber tire toy in Roxy's bowl to slow her down. She has to eat around it and also work to get the food out of the middle. It has slowed her down a lot, but she makes a bigger mess slobbering everywhere.

Just be careful, like I said, my sister's dog Ginger broke her teeth trying to get out of a crate. She didn't get out.. but we felt terrible about her teeth. Not saying that's going to happen with your dog, but it is a possibility I guess. I would work more on trying to relieve the anxiety, whether ...
