Re: Opinions on potential adopter needed

honestly, I've found that if I have doubt about an adopter, its for good reason. go with your gut! One of the biggest things that makes fostering a rewarding experience for me is knowing that they have a new family that really loves them, and is going to care for them, if I couldn't walk away feelin...

Re: Anal Glands *yuck*

haha ew that video was gross. but it made me wonder too, I've been doing Paiges glands forever, the vet showed me how since she needed them done so often... Her uh "stuff" has never been that thick, but more of a brownish clear liquid... for those of you who do it at home, would you say it...

Re: Kibble change (Fromm?)

Ive never used fromm but have heard great things! I would definitely give it a try, I cant find it locally or I would love to try it! We've been feeding TOTW, and Couda does get tear stains from it, but that happens with a few foods, so I dont worry too much. Nutro put out a grain free food, so we g...

Re: OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

Its not arrogant at all. From what I have been reading and from what I have seen, that was one of the reason why they did it. Tonight when I get home from work i'll look for those links again, but its out there. Why do you like the cropped job if it doesn't look natural? And you do? Also I wasn't c...

Re: OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

When the ears are cropped, especially the crop job that looks like little nubs of the ear is left, you cannot read the dogs ear signals. The ears are also unnaturally positioned upwards, and that is how they stay because of how the cartilage heals. Cropping it allows it to function like a natural d...

Re: OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

It does make it hard to read canine body language. I'm sorry I haven't seen proof other wise. no offense but, the only way this would be true is if the person looking doesnt have the experience and knowledge to understand what they are looking at. This is completely untrue. I know a good bit about ...

Re: When to say When

Gunny sounds a lot like our foster Ferrall, also not a pit bull, but a standard xolo. He wants to eat our cats. I have tried over and over to desensitize him to them, and it doesnt fly. One trainer collegue suggested the same thing you did, that he may have already experienced hunting/killing a cat ...

Re: Shelter Play Groups

i should clarify she didnt use shock collars or mention them at the seminar. I found videos of her on youtube using one though, and thought it was completely uneccessary. at the seminar she had a shake can, squirt bottle, and an air horn. she used all three, but primarily the squirt bottle and verba...

Re: Shelter Play Groups

I PM'd you but I thought I'd repeat it here... Aimee didn't mention Cesar Milan at our seminar, but obviously shes not a positive only trainer. She kicked two dogs in the playgroup and that didnt sit well with me at all, but as I weighed the negative impact of the little kick to the positive impact ...
