What do you think of head collars? Like the Gentle Leader?

Just wondering what your experience is with head collars. I have a VERY excitable 2 year old pit I am working with at the Animal Services dept. I volunteer for.

Does Merrick really make a gravy when soaked?

My dogs are bonkers about warm "something" mixed in with their kibble. Right now I feed 1/2 portion Chicken Soup and 1/2 portion The Honest Kitchen Verve. They love it b/c I make The Honest Kitchen with super warm water...but I'm looking to simplify and get away from 2 different things to ...

I'm enjoying them to pieces not having puppies to deal with anymore...our next one will most likely be a senior dog. I think it will be exciting training each one...and g...

Re: What I use...

I buy Chicken Soup for the Pet Lovers Soul made by Diamond. You can find stores that sell it on the internet. It's about $20 for 18lbs. Read the ingredients, sounds good enough for me...LOL I would like to try the raw diet in the future maybe. The store near me doesn't sell the wet food so I buy We...

Re:

I'm a huge fan of floppy silky ears and long whippy tails. I *personally* would never surgically alter any dog for cosmetic reasons, regardless of breed. The only non-essential surgery Kirby will have is neutering. Ditto. Although I do have to admit...there is something gorgeous about docked ears o...

Yearly checkup, registration...am I paying too much $$$?

Well, it's almost February, so time to take the pups in for their checkups, and yearly registrations. How much do you guys pay per yearly checkup? I get all the regular shots, and pay $10 per dog to the county for a tag etc, and just get the 1 year rabies vaccine. The totaly including the tag fee wa...
