Before we got Doc, Daisys workout was like this: -Wake me up in the morning smacking be in the head with her deflated soccer ball that she killed. Play with that for a few, eat, walk a mile. -Play tug o'war for about 30 mins inside during the hot part of the day -Late afternoon, 20 mins or so of zoo...

By "made to order" I mean the the break down of discovering motivators per dog. What works period, then the difference between what works in different situations. Daisy for example will train well for food. 10 pounds of Filet wouldn't pull her off a squirell or cat though, so it's useless half of th...

Ruby has no food or toy motivation. When she doesn't want to 'down' no cheese, hot dog, meat or toy will make her down. She will down though, because she knows that I can and will enforce my commands. This is the part that I wonder about. Mine have very very high drives in thier respective areas. I...

I have seen those. I would love to wear mine out carrying me around. :)) Those things are expensive as hell though. I figured that I would be just as well off with a cheapy from Walmart and a Mig welder. Looks cool though.

Edit: the breath thing was even before I switched the food. I was going to go pick up a bottle of the straight Lactobillicus that I use for us during/post antibiotics. Is that what you mean for the straight enzyme?

Ruby asked me to post her opinion of your posts. http://www.mnp13.com/ruby/tongue1.jpg I have to ask though, if the e-collar is soooo evil, why does Ruby go NUTS when I get it out? Ruby gave me a nice shiner one day while I was putting it on her - it must have been the intense fear that was making ...

I appreciate the compliment Moto :oops: Where it it's due. :) You're knowledge of diet has definately been a very helpful addition around here. Again something I didn't know, never heard that about the Innova. Daisy does so well on it. It cleared up her flaky skin that was so bad that when I bought...

What did you do to help him get over it? A lot of love and time. With him I knew it wasn't nerves because in his element he was fearless. There was just so many things (about 90% of the world) that he had never seen before. He didn't even know what a couch, bed, or a bone was...though he settled ri...

When I got my rescue Riley he had lived on a chain from puppyhood until I got him. I could make a list a mile long of things that he was scared of. Much of the world was strange to him.

I have never cut my dogs nails outside of the dew claws, which is a waste because they let me without problems. The concrete keeps them tip top. Walks on the sidewalk do the trick, especially with Daisy's prey drive. At least once a week she runs in place after a squirell or cat and takes them back ...

Barbponys got a question...

OK, so Doc has had either soft stool or flat out runs for about 3 weeks. He had this at the same time as the bone incident with Daisy so I took them both to the vet with stool samples just in case. Had em checked for everything with no problems but put them both on a round of antibiotics since Daisy...

Not necessarily, I'm seeing more and more dogs that genetically have extremely weak nerves. People breed them, too. They are sweet and non-problematic :roll: Odd, I had never seen a dog like this before until my old neighboor came home with a Bloodhound pup. He was free as he wouldn't stop shaking ...

If you are talking about an e-collar where you hold the button, I would first discourage that IMO, and secondly say that if you must you should go with an experienced trainer to show you how and when to deliver the corrections or you will make it worse. If you mean a electric fence as a inner perime...

I take my downtown and onto campus as well. One at a time though, when the twin powers unite it is frequently to make me look like an ass. lol
