Start with one thing and then once the pup is doing well for several days on that you can slowly introduce other foods. Giving ground beef, chicken and egg for puppy's very fisrt raw meal sounds like a recipe for cannon butt to me. Bone in chicken breasts are good to start puppies on. I learned alot...

Prey model is a way of feeding. Instead of feeding ground meat with veggies I feed whole parts. My dogs may each get a small chicken to work on or a pork shoulder or whole fish, an entire rabbit (sans fur and head b/c I can't handle that unless they catch it themselves). It is supposed to provide th...

Thanks, I figured the 10 minutes or so was good. I just wanted other opinions. I try to keep thier workouts to a minimum when it's really hot or humid but sometimes it's a good hard run or my sofa becomes a chew toy! My one girl never knows when to quit so i time thier exercise then leash them.

Cooling Down after exercise

After my dogs get any kind of strenuous exercise I usually walk them on lead for about 10 minutes before letting them stop moving completely. Is 10 minutes sufficient? I read somewhere that you should walk your dog for at least as long as it ran/worked, so 30 minutes of running would mean 30 minutes...

I agree, unless a dog is sick it will not starve itself. When my girls first started raw i put down the food for 10-15 minutes. If they walked away I put it back in the fridge and they got nothing until the next meal time. One dog took to it immediately and gets great joy from ripping her food apart...

I used to feed Nutro, actually I used to feed lots of different brands. I'm now following the prey model diet. You have to comfortable with whatever you are feeding. There is tons of info out there and I only changed to what I'm feeding now after a lot of research and thought. What is right for one ...

The benedryl should help a lot. I'm also a huge fan of Bag Balm. It's great for small irritations and scrapes and my dogs never seem to lick it off. A little goes a loooong way and it's cheap. I buy mine at WalMart in the lotion ailse

Pits are not supposed to be real big. Athletic and muscular, yes. Genetics plays a huge role in how big your pup will be. I know alot of people who have and really like Razor's Edge line dogs but if you read the APBT breed standard they are not supposed to be that big. To build muscle at such a youn...

Jez had the traditional repair on both legs. She had (and still has 5 and 6 years later) a lot of compications however I firmly believe that it's b/c the first vet I went to put her on crate rest for 8 weeks and then 6 more weeks instead of surgery before I got a second opinion. I've had foster dogs...

She is adorable! If I had a way of getting her to Maryland and knew she was good with other dogs I'd take her in a heartbeat!

Jezzy (the pittie) turns 7 in September and Jada,the boxer, we think is around 4. The only other animal I have right now is a cat I'm fostering until she finds a home. She has been at the shelter for 9 months and was getting cranky (who can blame her though!) I am on the lookout for a new pup that I...

Hi!

Hi from Baltimore! I'm Rachel, mom to a great pittie girl Jezzy who has severe arthritis in all 4 legs but is still obsessed with playing fetch and 1 neurotic boxer girl Jada who is terrified of everything and chases shadows. Both my girls were rescues. I work at a shelter and almost always have at ...
