Re: Are grain-free diets REALLY grain free?

They tested for soy because they had a test for it. This study had a dual purpose, because the hydrolysate diets use soy protein and there have been questions about weather this is a safe alternative for dogs who may have soy allergies. I didn't post that portion of the results because I didn't fig...

Re: Kibble storage

I use a kibble keeper and keep the food in the bags. I used to pour the kibble into the container, but I've been told that the bags have anti-bacterial properties, plus I think it helps keep the kibbler "fresher" if it's in a closed bag, in a closed container lol. Plus I feed two separate ...

Re: Kibble change (Fromm?)

I've always loved Fromm. It's a great food, seems pretty consistent in quality, and for the most part, is very palatable. Even my bichon will eat it. It is extremely expensive here tho, the 30lb bag of Chicken ala veg is like $73.99. I took it out of the rotation because it was just too pricey for a...

Re: Collars that won't break the bank

Another for Collarshop here! Just ordered my third collar from them. Their collars are nice, well-made, durable and cute. With the sale currently going, I got a 1.5 inch martingale collar w/satin lining and a tag keeper for under 25 bucks. That includes shipping!

Possible Inflammatory Bowel Disease??

Roughly two and a half years ago, Riley got sick randomly. He threw up the food he had eaten hours beforehand, then continued to throw up large amounts of slimey yellow bile. We took him to the vet, did an x-ray, which showed nothing, did bloodwork, and the vet gave him anti-vomiting meds. She suspe...

Re: Anyone familiar with Crate Games? Please Help!

Well I watched your videos and I think I am gonna do exactly what you suggested. I also watched the beginning of Crate Games again, and I'm thinking that we just aren't at the point where we can begin to use this method because of his fear. I am going to start feeding his meals in the crate, and lea...

Re: Anyone familiar with Crate Games? Please Help!

I'm not familiar with the DVD you mention at all (though I'm looking it up right now!) but I'm a little uncomfortable with what sounds like "even if the dog is stressed, don't let them out of the crate" and I hope that's misinterpretation on your part! lol Generally speaking, you should b...

Anyone familiar with Crate Games? Please Help!

Early March, we have some agility seminars coming up. This will be my first time ever going to a seminar and I'm really excited, but I have a tiny problem.. Riley hates hates HATES crates. Absolutely demolishes them. He's chewed through two. He absolutely cannot relax in a crate or a confined space....

Wasn't sure which section this thread was best suited, training/behaviour, dog sports, or the gallery.. so if you feel it belongs elsewhere, please feel free to move it mods! If there is one thing I absolutely LOVE watching, it's a dog doing darn good heelwork. Even better if it involves a bully bre...
