Re: Hog Hunting--too dangerous for rescue dogs?

I don't see how anyone can send a dog into such a violent situation. I'd rather have my dog happily cuddling with me on the couch, snoring or enjoying her normal exercise activities. Fine and dandy as long as you accept the fact that not all dogs (And certainly not all people) are suited to that li...

Re: "Wrestling" with your dog?

I think it can be a fun game, and- if anything- a way to teach positive human-dog interactions.

Re: Healthy weight

She is too thin, and needs to gain weight. I do think a fit dog of a smooth coated breed should be showing some rib. Nichole's dogs are an example of that, they are in good condition. This dog doesn't have a lot of muscle, though, which should also be easy to see. The Purina weight chart is IMO mis...

Re: Carpet mill vs. electronic mill

For this case, electric mill all the way. A carpet mill, even a well-made one, requires a good deal of force to move and thus creates a lot of resistance- which is great for building muscle tone on structurally sound dogs. However, an electric mill will provide more than adequate exercise for any do...

Re: Euthinize, will it be best?

The only time I have laid my hands on my dog was once to slap her on the butt for getting into some trash


Yeah, maybe the "boyfriend", but I have witnessed you lose your cool with Athena and do more than give her a "slap on the butt".

Re: Euthinize, will it be best?

She should be rehomed or put down. Unstable or conditioned as such the poor girl was given the crap end of the stick by letting it get this bad. It's unfortunate but after hurting that many people, especially a child, and being allowed to continue such behavior she's likely not safe in your home. T...

Re: Canned Food

I feed Isaac canned food in addition to his dry kibble. I recently picked up a can of Tiki Dog Kauai Chicken and Prawns (In lobster consomme lol)... and let me tell you it's nearly cured my canned food phobia. https://www.t-mobilepictures.com/myalbum/photos/photo17/e4/10/c6d0ab420c18__1292885622000....

Re: Hmm... choices

I like Earthborn, I feed their Primitive Natural formula (grain free) and like the higher calorie content.

But it's not going to help weight loss. TOTW is what I'd go with.

Re: Outside dog housing material

Straw is best, but hay should suffice in moderate weather. My dog eats shavings and later chocolate rocks- and I've seen too many dogs die from ingesting wood chips.

Re: importance of Warmup/Cooldown time?

This makes perfect sense to me as I myself am an athlete but to be honest I never though about it for my dogs. Thanks for this. Also GSDbulldog, you wrote about post workout supplement. What do you give your dogs? I have been thinking about feeding part of the dogs meal straight after a heavy sessi...

Re: ACL Issues?

I had my vet examine him,

There has been no swelling nor signs of pain and he is back to his old self after a week of rest from extensive exercise. We're going to take it easier, of course. But I'm a bit relieved, keeping him rested is harder than keeping him worked.
