Re: Questions about ACE and other Meds for my Foster

Thank you for the replies everyone! I decided not to use ACE and so far have not needed it. I don't know her heritage and I have managed to keep her calm by keeping her in an x-pen with lots of WTE toys and keeping someone nearby for company. She weights 14 lbs misskiwi, for future reference, is it ...

Questions about ACE and other Meds for my Foster

Mera (my foster) was spayed today at a clinic I have never been to. The shelter I am fostering her for does not pay for pain killers so I bought them myself (after okaying it with the shelter). And I wanted to check and see if some of what they prescribed is normal for this situation. She has- Acepr...

Re: Can we make this a trend?

Nosework uses red bandannas for 'give this dog space'.
I think red is better at conveying the 'stay away' message than yellow.

Re: Skylar Irie

The one thing stopping Miami AC from taking the dog away, is that there is no standard or real registry for Service Dog Certification, there are no actual requirements to say that a dog Is a service dog besides the basic principles that a dog must act and conform to in a social setting. Also, there...

Re: Susie traumatized by gunshots

I would take some *very* tasty treats and a recording of gunshots which you can find someplace like YouTube- [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=sHffVHCiUto&NR=1[/youtube] When the gun fire sounds (start it out as quietly as she needs), literally rain treats on her head...

Re: Help with my new pup

Yes! Use treats to make the crate a good place to be. I would highly suggest 'Crate Games' by Susan Garret- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebjBo_spqG0 http://www.clickerdogs.com/crate_games.php" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Or here is a similar video that can get you started- http:/...

Very cool! I have wanted to buy this but the $150 price tag scared me off.

Re: OFFICIAL e-collar debate thread

There are some realy great debates going on through these last 10 pages. As far as using them to stop a dog from barking, hold stay ect I would not use them. Infact personaly there are only a few situations where I would use them if it will save an animal or humans life. Even though Im not fond of ...

Re: Leash Reactivity

Just finished with the lesson and I ended up learning a lot more than I thought I would! Much of it is still sinking in and we have another lesson planned for Thursday in a little more challenging environment. The first thing she noted was that Apollo is effectively unable to function or relax witho...

Re: rescued great dog, she just need a little guidance

I am sure others can follow up with better advice, but I can give you a few of my thoughts :) I would NOT use an E-Collar in this situation, it would be wholly inappropriate. Have you tried giving her something else to do in these situations so you can set her up for success? Being proactive instead...

Re: Leash Reactivity

I have some private lessons set up with my trainer :D I mean, I wouldn't start off with a dog you know is going to push him to his limit right away, but since you'll likely be working with a variety of dogs I don't think there's much benefit to trying to stack them in order every single time (maybe ...
