Re: Trouble Walking My Dog with two People Present

Sounds like the dog lacks self control. You can practice little games that will help her learn self control and then you can start incorporating those into your walks. In my opinion long exercise walks should be done without another person, and the training walks should be kept really short. 10 feet...

Re: Dog poops way too much

She weighs exactly 67.4 pounds. Her body condition is very good. Good muscle tone, nice tuck, last rib shows and other ribs can be felt clearly but aren't completely visible unless she's panting hard. She's a very bully dog, both wide and naturally muscular. We run up to 4 miles a day, play fetch ma...

Re: Dog poops way too much

I specifically asked about If all of that checked out, I'd follow up with a TLI, Cobalamin and Folate through Michigan State lab. and they said no, they hadn't done it. We're going to do that and see if we can position her for a radio-graph without sedation or something very mild. Her appointment is...

Re: Dog poops way too much

Boy am I tired. I missed some questions. I've had her for almost a year. She eats 2.5 to 3 cups a day, depending on how hungry she is. Sometimes she'll leave some in the bowl. She eats twice a day with a snack in the middle on weekends and that's taken out of her dinner feeding.

Re: Dog poops way too much

She's had all the worm tests done, including checking for giardia and coccidia and was treated for round worms when I first brought her home. Her fecal floats are normal, now. A blood panel was done, and her thyroid was checked (we were trying to find the cause of her rashes, turns out it's a grass ...

Dog poops way too much

When I got my dog I used her pound food (Science Diet) to transition her over to my food. She was constantly pooping. The first movement of the day would be solid, the second would be softer, and on and on until it was literally dripping out like liquid. I had her on Victor for a while and she kept ...

Re: Hind end awareness - I'm just not getting it

I say the word Yes to mark the behavior I want probably 30 times a minute. I can't get video because I don't have anyone help me. Thanks for the video. I haven't done anything with her in a few days because of work, but will have lots of free time this weekend so we'll try again.

Re: Hind end awareness - I'm just not getting it

These are good ideas. I've got a piece of poster paper that's pretty big and its' easy to step on without even trying.

Re: Hind end awareness - I'm just not getting it

I feel like I keep getting stuck whenever I'm rewarding super tiny movements. She doesn't seem to be putting them together no matter how I try to get her to realize it. Luring works but only so much and she has problems transitioning from lure to doing it on her own. Once we get stuck she just stand...

Hind end awareness - I'm just not getting it

I've watched several videos and here's what I've done. I've put a very large book about 2 inches thick on the floor to give my dog a definite 'pad' to see, feel, and step on. I clicker trained her to put her front feet on the book. I can't figure out how to get her to put her back feet on the book. ...

Re: Victor Dog Food

Where I'm buying my bags the only GF formula is the glucosamine one. I'll stick to what I've been getting since it's making my dog look great and I'll look around for any G/C supplements I can give her.

Re: Victor Dog Food

I'm really digging this dog food! Her poops are tiny and hard (but not constipated), her doggy breath is completely gone without anything extra done, and she's eating less of this food than she was of her other.

Re: My dog is peeing on my couch

She's sixish and she is spayed. It was done when I adopted her earlier this year. I've thrown the couch out and have stopped allowing her on the furniture. It was really random when she'd pee on it, but I refused to buy another bottle of Nature's Miracle. Hopefully she won't decide to start peeing o...
