Re: How many dogs???

I have used spring poles, flirt poles, treadmills, fetch up and down stairs, and furniture agility. We also have a pool at both houses which is beneficial for dogs who enjoy pools and those who don't. I have used a harness and cross leads across the pool or a pole lead and walk(swim) the dog around...

Re: How many dogs??? & fostering

Holy cow! I am amazed at how many of you have multiple pets! A lot of them sleeping with you to! As far as fostering, good idea but i'm totally afraid that i'll get attached and will never, ever be able to give the doggie back. I wonder how many people can actually do that? seems impossible to me. ...

Re: Tea Tree Oil

^^ Is the bay rum beneficial in any way? (I do love the smell of it too) I haven't heard of it having any health benefits, but it smells so good. I have a dog who rolls outside if you know what I mean. She gets sooooooo stinky. She smells wonderful after the baths she gets them every time she gets ...

Sounds like it would be fun to watch them play with it outside. It would be like dog soccer.[/quote]

Agreed. I plan to get one. We have lots of outdoor dog friendly places where I live. From watching my dogs play, I swear, dogs invented the game of football or some similar game.

Re: Tea Tree Oil

I don't know about that but it made my allergy girl EXTREMELY itchy. :( She scratched herself bloody after I tried a tea tree oil shampoo. I'm a groomer. Not only did products with Tea Tree oil make so many of the dogs I bathed get hives, I got hives too. I am 100% using only a hypo allergenic sham...

Re: Tivoli

This guy has been in our local shelter for a year... it breaks my heart to see how happy he is and all that he has been through and know that he is still at the shelter. When found he had a muzzle on and a dislocated shoulder, he was burned over 90% of his body. He had been thrown from a truck and ...

Fostering isn't for everyone. It's worth checking out though for sure. :) I currently have 3 of my own and a roommates dog in a 4 bedroom home with a size-able yard. I have in the past lived with 7 dogs(4 fosters, 3 keepers) in a small 3 bedroom home with a small yard. It's a lot of work but much e...

Re: Heartworm Meds in the Dead of Winter?

Depends on how long your cold weather lasts. One good reason to keep them on preventative year round used to be that you didn't have to retest if they stayed on the preventative, but I know they're now recommending the retesting be annually anyway. So, if you're having months and months of freezing...

Re: OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

You took my opinion and ran with it. Not everyone is going to agree and have the same views in this thread(obviously). Sorry but cropped pitties look "hard" and 'tough" to me(maybe I should have chosen my descriptions more carefully), especially with big chains and spikes around thei...
