I would work on going for normal walks with other dogs before hiking. It sounds as if hes off leash when hiking, that means that if he did get into a fight with another dog on the hike you'd have little to no control. It sounds like once hes interested in something that he enjoys he focuses on it, ...

I don't recommend playing with other dogs... If hes okay with your shiba inu, then let him play with him, and yourself :) I watched an episode of Cesar where a couple had two pit bulls that got along super great and then one got into a fight with another dog and progressively began fighting with th...

How long ago was he neutered? Sometimes it can take 6 months for the testosterone to stop making them act up (aggression, mounting etc)

Also, it is not always for sexual reasons. It's usually dominance, which is why a female dog may mount another dog.

in addition, i don't need him to PLAY with dogs.. i can play with him myself. I work as a LVT, and all my friends have animals. we hike, and to expect him to behave while hiking is reasonable. that's all i want.

However, he only like 1 big dog that I know... all other dogs his size or bigger he's got an issue with. And it also seems to extend to other pitbulls.. which is very disappointing, as we'd like him to play with dogs his size as well. he doesn't 'need' to 'play' with other dogs. he has a friend tha...

i live in northern virginia. ;) I have been thinking about doing some behavior consults with him, since we have a few great vets here that do that. I am lucky that it's manageable.. and im thinking that since he can have a maltese or a yorkie bite him in the nose and he just shrugs it off, im convin...

Big Dog Discrimination

We got Marley the week of St. Patty's Day this year, and fell in love right away, but was worried about him liking bear our 23lb husky/shiba inu. Well, they are BFF's... and bear is definetly our alpha. Marley lets bear beat the poopie out of him and just face plants himself and smiles. However, he ...

She could be licking because she has allergies... but it could be the mange. If it's itching her so bad she won't stand then she is probably raw. Tramadol AND Benadryl will make them sleepy, don't worry. And benadryl took about 4 days to work in my apbt. KEEP THE CONE ON :) She'll love you for it la...

Dose was just for the one particular fish oil (eicosapentaenioc acid). Other ingredients may be in your 1000mg capsules, that's why i added that particular one. Food actually doesn't have therapeutic doses of oils, and that's why supplementation is a good idea on top of a diet. You can also get vete...

You should get a second opinion. Your vet should give you options. We treat this with oral ivermectin as well and possibly an antibiotic. Treatment takes time, but works well. Better to be complete and help it work than doing dips that can also cause a reaction allergically..not evening thinking of ...

I was going to get my dog some fish oil capsules. They are 1,000 milligrams per capsule. How many milligrams would a 45-50 lbs dog need daily? They are for people but I am guessing the ingredients are all the same. Per my Veterinary dosage book: *ding* :thumbsup: Fish Oil ( eicosapentaenoic and doc...
