Re: Kong fetch stick on rope reveiw (NOT GOOD)

:UPDATE: After de-furring it it was great but 3 weeks old it was just torn in half so it's going bye bye. Too bad Lucy loved playing fetch with it. She actually keeps looking for it. I need to get my stuff together and produce "Pit Proof Toys". Maybe I could use bricks, concrete and titani...

Collarmania - Martingale qustions

Okay so I just go my collar in and well I am an idiot. :oops: I have never had a martingale before and really not 100% sure on how to use this properly. I suppose you make it just big enough to fit over the head than the slip with the D-Ring is used to hold the leash to act as a sort of pinch collar...

Re: Counting down to the big day:

Never fear the spay, they normally don't even notice it.

As far as the X-rays go, good luck there hopefully it is nothing. :pray

Re: Training Class At Petsmart?

I go to Petsmart and my trainer is pretty knowledgeable, not sure about the other trainers there though. I mainly go just for the socialization. I would also be wary about telling you it is good for you to go if your dog already has fearful aggression. That is probably not a good place to be, good t...

Re: Problems on walks

As far as the collar thing you need to make it a happy thing for your dog. try to give him treats when the collar is on. Maybe make him sit as well if that goes well just another thing to get your dog on the same page with you. Lucy hated the collar at first now when she sees it she gets all crazy b...

Re: so proud!

Congratulations. Dogs have a mind of their own some times so when they do those kinds of things it really reinforces the reason we own them. If I may one thing I do with Lucy is "Watch Me" where I hold a treat around my eyes and have here pay attention, than she gets the treat. At first it...

Re: Over excitement when another dog is present

I feel your pain. Lucy is the same way at 6 month's. She is well behaved for the most part and listens well but add kids/dogs and the difficulty level goes up.I have been taking Lucy to obedience classes and we have been working on having them sit and wait when meeting people, even people with dogs....

Re: Go fetch boy!

I agree 100%, let him tug a bit, but work on the drop it as well. Lucy is the same way in a way some times she tugs and some times she goes to her bed in the family to get some chew time in. But I get her to "drop it" than the game is on again. My last dog Maya same way and she loved fetch...

Changinf food requirements.

As some of you know Lucy is still young (5 1/2 month's) I have only had her on Chicken soup for the puppy lovers soul so far. She does great with it, tons of energy solid poops (most of the time but very rarely runny), her coat is good and she freaks out when it food time, though that made be she is...
