Re: Trick ideas please!

I'll watch the videos when I get to a computer, it takes way to long to load anything on my phone.

We do a ton of hind end awareness exercises and it's made a big difference in her obedience and agility turns! I love the "pot" exercise.

Re: Trick ideas please!

Nod yes or shake head no are good because you can work them into a lot of presentations. Body parts? Like wiggle left ear, raise right foot, wag tail - things like that would impress kids, too, and there are lots of options. YES! I can teach her the hokey-pokey! Hehehe. My husband has taught her ho...

Trick ideas please!

Since winter is upon us and I despise being cold, I use the months we are stuck indoors for trick training. The problem is that I can't think of any good tricks to teach! Everything I have found in searches are just obedience commands and a few basics the girls have learned already. I would love som...

Re: My dog is peeing on my couch

How old is she and has she been spayed?

You may need to have the couch cleaned. The cleaner spray only does so much.

Re: California Natural vs. Fromm

I feed red meats (Vi won't touch poultry in any form) and fish. I just peel the "rind" off and save it or sell it back to another person in my co-op. They are eating venison right now, so it isn't a big concern since its so lean. I haven't ventured to pork yet. If you are part of a co-op, ...

Re: California Natural vs. Fromm

I used to use the Whitefish formula and it's 12% or maybe 14% tops. Their Gold Weight Management is 10%.

I have since switched my pancreatitis candidate to a raw diet, because I can control exactly how much fat she is really getting.

Re: BDD's newest creation... dog sport harness

I'm loving the harness and have been using the heck out of it! The only "flaw" I found, she has since modified the design and fixed. I love the adjustability of it since I work a lot of dogs and we tend to share equipment at training. It's modeled after a Schutzhund/ sport harness and thos...

Re: Appa the terrorist at my parents house.. suggestions?

Just wanted to share an update!!! Breezy and Appa have come down for a few training sessions so far and they are making some really good progress! The two of them are a joy to work with and both are catching on quickly. We are starting things out fairly slowly to build a nice solid foundation and be...

Re: concerning behavior?

I personally wouldn't be worried about a thing. She sounds social and does like people, she just likes you best. Totally normal.

I have an entire troop of dogs and cats that follow me from room to room. I seriously can't remember the last time I was able to take a bath by myself lol.

Re: concerning behavior?

It's not necessarily a bad thing. Vi is totally "my" dog, she is my little shadow even though she is also a social butterfly at events or in public. IMO, as long as the dog doesn't freak out or show signs of separation anxiety I personally wouldn't be concerned. If he wants her to have mor...

Re: concerning behavior?

A couple questions for more background: Who feeds her meals? Who walks her? Who plays with her? Who trains her? Who grooms her? Who takes her places? ... If the answer to 4 or more of the above is "me", then there is the reason she is so attached to you. Dogs are opportunistic, meaning (in...
