Re: Leash Reactivity

Easy, just get a prong collar lol j/k DUH! I should have thought of that! lol So would it be reverse BAT because the other dog is doing the movement while he stays still? Would you like his focus to remain on you while he stays in a "sit" or would displaying alternate behaviors (calming s...

Don't worry about that! You will do perfectly fine, as long as you put in the effort and love your dog, she will think you're the bomb :thumbsup:

Re: Protective aggression?

I would say it is neither inappropriate play nor her attempts to protect you. It sounds exactly like fear aggression. A wagging tail can mean many things from play to a dog warning before a bite. Putting a dog in a down, will not fix the problem and you need to be very careful of how you approach fi...

Re: Shade Whitesel seminar

I haven't been to a workshop with her but I have trained with Shade. She has a boat load of knowledge and is a really sweet person to boot!

Have fun!

Leash Reactivity

I need a little help with some leash reactivity problems I am having with Apollo. Apollo is good on leash.....until another dog he wants to meet goes past. He lunges and screams and makes an utter fool of himself, which the breed doesn't need. It only happens with certain dogs, in certain situations...

Re: Muzzles?

I also vote Baskerville!

A lot of Petco stores are carrying the brand now, so you may be able to size them in person.

Re: Puppy Brain Games

Nosework. All you need are boxes and treats. I can shoot a quick instructional video with my foster tonight, if you would like.

And I like the muffin tin/tennis ball idea!

Re: Crate Training

Where is her crate? Maybe she's enjoying the attention from asking to go out even though she could hold it? When my Becky was young she was on a remedial potty training schedule and she learned very quickly to squat without actually peeing to get a treat :twisted: It is directly beside my bed. It c...

Re: Crate Training

That seems very frequent to me. Scheme slept in bed with me, I think by that point, she was making it 6 hours or so. I never got up more than 1-2 times a night when she was really little. By 11 weeks, it definitely wasn't that often. I don't know if the fact that it was dead of winter played a role...

Re: Crate Training

:( Sort of. She's less than 3 months, and the rule of thumb is however many months old plus one. So it be right around every three/four hours. Of course dogs are going to vary and that's just a guideline. How would you feel about, when she lets you know she's got to go out, wait ten minutes and the...

Re: Anyone use Blue Buffalo food?

I fed Blue Wilderness and liked it. Cost and limited availability drove me to another brand.

Crate Training

My little foster Rhea (11 weeks old now, I think) is one smart cookie but I am hoping for some help/advice with crate training. She is excellent in the crate at night, is doing great at potty training in general but she has to wake up to go potty at least 3x (or more) in the night, every night. I st...

Re: Riddle's TTA recovery thread

Thank you for posting this!

An ACL rupture is something I really worry about and it is wonderful to have information from someone who is going through it, all in one spot.

Re: Ditching the prong collar?

what kind of harness were you using? It sounds like it was not fitting correctly. I sometimes find those harnesses seem to only fit specific dogs (and I'm grateful that my dogs are in that category lol) but I find if you turn them upside down - so the belly strap goes across the back, but the chest...
