Re: Gaining Weight

How long should the pipe be? Also for learning purposes, why is it better to feed twice a day instead of 1 time? Shes been fed once a day her whole life with me. I also sleep in late, so its always worked out perfect that way, and a huge majority of my friends all feed once a day. So whats the benif...

Re: Gaining Weight

Jumping for toys is different, this is a chase drive. She likes to play fetch right? So there very well could be a decent amount of prey drive in there. (which for the most part is what flirt pole is "activating" .. not the best term but it works.) Or it could just be a retrieval urge. Wi...

Re: Gaining Weight

How old is she? They do fill out quite a bit as they mature Sent from my Nexus S using Tapatalk 2 Shes 4ish now. Rescued her, and she was a stray someone found before that, so no one knows her age for sure... but best guess was that she was around 1 when i got her. The flirt pole is really more abo...

Re: Strollers for big dogs?

You might be able to score a kid's bike trailer on craiglist for cheap. Some can be modified easily to push or pull without a bike. Weight-wise, it might be kinder to your body to be able to pull her in a bike trailer. They are usually screened in and fully enclosed. Ive always wanted to get one of...

Re: Gaining Weight

she looks fine to me, you could probably take a pound or two off but i dont think it is neccessary (and its hard to tell because she is black), she has nice muscle definition for a pet :) yea, she seems perfectly happy, i was just amazed to find out how heavy she is now vs a few months ago. Long as...

Re: Gaining Weight

Honestly I think you'd need better pictures of her for anyone to get a good idea. You need one straight on from her side and maybe one from the top looking down. Yup, i just took some of those today. Here they are... http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8151/7101023811_b554bfab01_z.jpg http://farm9.static...

Re: Gaining Weight

Does she she get treats often? Are the treats deducted from her food? I had that issue with my boy, had lots of exercise but kept gaining weight. I 1.) Started using lower fat foods (was using hot dogs) 2.) If we had training that day with treats I took a portion out of his dog food. If you have so...

Re: Gaining Weight

If you're looking to shed pounds I'd start doing some cardio, biking, flirt pole, swimming would be good too. Tug's good as well, it builds muscle more so but still does help shed a few. Speaking from results I saw, not science. :tongue: 1 problem, im not exactly sure what flirt pole is about, ive ...

Gaining Weight

Well i weighed my girl today, and she came out to be a whopping 60 pounds! When i weighed her in Feb, she was only at 47... Guess all the working out has paid off. She doesn't look any bigger, and shes not eating more, the only thing that has changed is we walk a lot more and play fetch a lot more. ...
