Re: Little brag

and your stressing the crap out of the dog, he barks at other dogs and is told its wrong, he's doing whats natural to him and you wont except him (the breed) for what it is. Talk about stress If you read the other threads you'll see this is exactly the opposite of what they've been doing. The goal ...

Re: Inexpensive Backyard Agillity Set?

It's not agility, but a super cheap (ie. pretty much free) activity you could do with him would be nosework. All you need is a few boxes and some food and it will tire him out. Here's an article on starting: http://www.dogstardaily.com/blogs/getting-started-nose-work" onclick="window.open(this.href)...

Re: Heat stroke...

Just reading the news now, so sorry for your loss :hug: Do not beat yourself up, there is a reason why these things are called "accidents." Perhaps if something could be made a sticky in Sheila's honor it would be triage care for a dog who is found when overheating. Obviously they should b...

Re: Laying down on the leash?

Is it very hot where you live? Is she getting too tired? Explore these factors as maybe the pavement is simply too hot for her to walk on and she's trying to take a break (it's about 10 degrees warmer near the ground if you're walking on pavement/asphalt). If it's that she's just being stubborn and ...

Re: Breakaway Collars for dogs

Starrlamia- Have you considered contacting Paco Collars because their cat collars come with an elastic piece that will stretch and not allow the collar to strangle the dog. I bet if you talked to Ana, she'd make one in doggy size for your dogs since you don't want anything too wide anyway. :)) Yep,...

Re: She tore her acl...

If it's any consolation, the insurance won't cover it if the dog already has acl issues... they're douches like that. Very smart douches. You also have to have coverage for at least a year prior to any knee issue for them to cover it, and then it's only a fraction of what you can probably get surger...

Re: Lucy Training : Going well, but need some help?

In addition to the info posted above, you can build her drive by keeping training sessions short and sweet, walking away before she's "done.". If she's suddenly "not obeying" after performing the same thing 5 times in a row, that means her little head is full and she's turned off...

Re: Good Collar for a dog who likes to pull

A reasonable worry. I heard of a woman killed by a train about two years ago -- she had the leash wrapped around her hand, and the dog was chasing her brother (or was it her son?) who, on a bicycle, had scooted across the tracks just ahead of the train. She wasn't large / strong enough to restrain ...
