Re: Reason for dogs eating other animals poo?

In my experience it can be a learned behavior too. I worked at a doggie daycare and poop eating was a major issue. If one dog saw another eating poop, he would run over to investigate what this dog was eating, and then start eating it too. What started out as about three dogs were serious poop eatin...

in house tie out system?

I was thinking it might be nice to have a short tie out in every room, something strong and more sturdy then a leash under a chair leg or something along those lines. I'd like for them to be anchored to the wall, in case of a fight in my house to make securing one dog easier. I made a mistake yester...

Re: Good book for pet health emergencies or first aid?

Both really, whatever sort of trouble my dog could get into that would require immediate action on my part to help them get to the e-vet in time.

Good book for pet health emergencies or first aid?

I lived in a small down which is about an hour an hour and a half away from the emergency vet. Where I used to live the e-vet was never more then a 20 minute drive away, plus you could almost always get a vet appointment somewhere even on the weekends. I've already had one emergency since I've been ...

Re: Mica needs a home-Maryland

Mica met with a potential adopter today, a friend of a friend. Unfortunately we had to meet downtown next to the worlds loudest dumptruck and Mica got pretty upset. She's still interested and is going to come over to my house next week and spend some time with her. No other dogs! Downside...she can'...

Re: Embarrassed to ask, but...

Ashes has a very nice dog bed for such occasions, she knows the commands to go sit in her bed, although the majority of the time she sleeps in bed with me. I think she can suffer through one night on her own, unfortunately the guy I see sometimes (no other way to put it I guess...) after everything ...

Re: Fleas *sob!*

Ugh, what a pain! Even after bringing many a flea bitten foster into my home I never had a problem with fleas and I don't treat regularly with preventative. For some reason they just didn't last in my Baltimore dwellings. As violent, gross and insane as that city can be it does have its upsides :thu...

Re: what to do when you can't "get away"

Ballpoint pen sounds good, sometimes I forget how well dogs can hear. I've never had much luck with voice markers-for some reason the clicker keeps me on point better.

Re: what to do when you can't "get away"

I just can't believe you they didn't give you any treats or toys. I've heard that if you scream like a little puppy then that gets them to stop the nipping and if that didn't work to step on the leash. The least you wanna do is make it negative, i think you were a brave soul for going into the wood...
