Re: importance of Warmup/Cooldown time?

They are crucial, IMO. I do a 30 minute warm-up of walking, building up to a brisk pace. I use this time to make sure my dog is completely emptied out. Cool-downs consist of the same, but opposite. We start at a brisker pace and slow down gradually until he has stopped panting hard. I also use this ...

Re: Making and Selling Break Sticks?

For $10 I'd buy a couple, especially if he sold them at shows.

Re: ACL Issues?

I did some light work with him today today, and was careful to warm him up properly. I kept an eye on him and no signs of him favoring any leg over the other. :dunno:

If it starts acting up again I'm going to have to take him in. I don't think I'm going to be pulling him this month at the show.

Re: ACL Issues?

Ugh, seems to be a general consensus here. I am praying that it's nothing more than over-worked muscles, keeping him down kills him, and me.

ACL Issues?

Jack has me a bit worried. I had him playing on the springpole a few days ago and when he went to jump (Only his front end came off the ground, it's set-up to be low), he screamed. My dog does not ever scream in pain (And he hurts himself a lot) so I put him up for the day. I noticed the next day he...

Re: Josh is getting dog aggressive

It sounds like that, out of all your dogs, Josh should be the least of your concern.

Re: Josh is getting dog aggressive

Okay, here is my friendly advice: Please don't cause undue stress to your dogs by feeding them in proximity to one-another. Avoid any future incidents with food as the trigger (Because, they will happen) by feeding them separately either in different rooms, or preferably their crates. Invest in a br...

Re: Josh is getting dog aggressive

Part of owning multiple dogs is managing the scuffles... kids fight, dogs fight, husbands/wives fight... the key is to recognize it, deal with it, and don't turn it into drama that makes the whole ordeal worse... :goodpost: I'm in tears at the idea that he is becoming aggressive. I socialized him, ...

Re: Highjump/springpole competitions???

I think the OP just wants an outlet for their dog's energy. You can compete in weight pull on a competitive scale even if your dog is not registered. You can neuter him and ILP him with the UKC and compete in UKC sports and trials (Weight pull, agility, etc.). There are also various other WP organiz...

Re: Highjump/springpole competitions???

The high-jump competition is popular in Europe and South America (As are a lot of other sports that don't really require training), but I don't know of such being popular in the US.

Some clubs do host hangtime competitions, but they're just for fun.

It cost around $400. The extraction was $550.

Re: Cash Chipped a Tooth

Jack has broken two teeth, his lower left canine was a clean break in half horizontally, similar to Cash's, and my vet opted to do a root canal and just fill it. The other tooth wasn't so lucky, http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc3/hs114.snc3/16144_177646650344_591685344_2966870_827453_n.jpg ...
