Re: food agressions

Has the dog been examined by a vet to rule out any sort of health problem that might cause this constant hunger? What kind of food is he on? Do you have any pictures so we might be able to see his height/weight? Please stop bothering him while he is eating, this will most likely serve to make the pr...

Re: Possible fear aggression with children

It sounds like an uncomfortable situation for the dog and she just reacted. If the children all rushed her like it sounds, I would be more surprised at no reaction then the reaction she gave. Many children do not know how to properly act around a dog and it's a whole different world for dogs with ch...

Re: HA Aggression

Thank you for the advice. I think once the training begins it will be easier to control her. She generally listens very well, but when she gets worked up like that there is no reaching her. We have had to drag her away from a cat because she would not listen and just kept pulling on the leash. I fe...

Re: Liberty on the Homefront

So I just finished reading over this whole thread and Amie may I say I know EXACTLY how you are feeling. I think Petunia and Liberty may be twins. I'm going on 5 months here and I am finally able to leave the house for a few hours at a time and not have her freak out. Petunia has come leaps and boun...

Re: A very heavy heart--needing some Advice

Ares strikes me as a dog who would do much better in an only dog home. Not JUST because of the DA but because he seems like he is going to need a lot of one on one time and a lot of consistency to get him past some of his issues. There are some dogs who do great in the crate and rotate lifestyle and...

well, according to dictionary.com, one of the definitions of "man handle" is to "handle roughly." Forgive me for not trusting your own opinion as a reliable source. Rough, would imply emotion in the situatino,validating my origional statement. Your origional statement was vague,...

Hey can someone find that SA sticky for them? I tried to search for it, but that ridiculously ineffective search feature is driving me crazy. :po: I've not seen an SA sticky, but I'd be more than willing to write one up. We seem to be getting more and more posts about it, so it might be beneficial....

Is separation anxiety really that hard to deal with? I don't mind having to train our new dog (I plan on it actually) my only issue is if my husband can handle it by himself when I'm at work. I'm pretty lucky that I only work 4 days out of the week then I'm off for 4 days in a row. I've never had a...

SA can be a pain to deal with. It requires a lot of patience, reading, evaluating the situation before and after, and also a lot of preventative work. Some come along faster than others, and I haven't seen to many that don't get over it with the right training. If you're willing to take the time wit...

Honestly, if Blue can be placed in a good home (with proper screening ect.) then i'd say place him and keep up with him through updates. Take your time. 5 dogs is a lot to deal with and Gator will be taking a lot of your time as well as your son. Keeping your son and Gator separated is imperative. D...

Thanks guys. Very helpful.. Yes she can relax in the crate, it is just when I leave that she starts having trouble. She doesn't like to chew on things, would it work the same general way if I sit next to the crate and give her treats when she focuses on something other than the cat? The cat is great...

I was thinking that throughout the day, bring the cat inside and move Petunia's crate to a common area so that she can stay in it and possibly observe the cat just moving around and that way the cat can also see her and hopefully get more used to her as well. I keep trying to think of situations to ...
