Recall, Kirkland and Taste of the Wild

Any reccomendations for an equal substitute? Mine are on TOTW Salmon because of Curly Sue's allergy issues. A lot of my clients lately with allergy prone dogs have been feeding Orijen. I think it's quite a bit more pricey, though :( Jack's on TOTW Pacific Stream too, although our state nor product ...

Hello from Boston

Might want to research the breed legislation in your area. I know the Boston area has a lot of restrictive laws (mandatory muzzling and the like) regarding the ownership of pit bull type dogs.

New pitbull owner, under odd circumstances.

Hope to learn a lot here, I'm sorry i didn't get a chance to research the breed before hand, it just kind of all fell in my lap. Truly, there is no need to apologize. These aren't exactly circumstances you could have planned for, and it sounds like you're doing the best you can to help this little ...

How much running is too much?

I would be most concerned about the surface you are running on. Hard surfaces such as city concrete can be vey rough on joints and lead to problems down the line. She's at that age when her bones and joints are about to their adult formation, but as with any high impact events, it's never a bad idea...

Re: Hello from MA

I have owned Max since he was 5 weeks old. I understand people say "8 weeks is the earlier you should take a puppy", but i do not agree with that too much. I think IF the mother had a bad temper the longer you leave the more it gets passed down (No matter what the owners say you can never...

Re: Looking to learn and grow...

Here's a few of links that may be of interest to you. You don't have to be the "alpha dog" because, well, you're not a dog. Think of your new pup as your partner, not you're subordinate. http://www.kathysdao.com/articles/Forget_About_Being_Alpha_in_Your_Pack.html" onclick="window.open(this...

Hello from Arizona!

Tucker doesn't like kibble ...

Just now getting around to reading this thread. Poor Tucker and poor you! Here's hoping for an optimistic turnout and that he's feeling better soon. Not knowing is the worst :(

Re: New to the breed.

There's a lot of great info on that site. Most importantly understanding canine body language. What we humans tend to interpret as "aggression" is what is called protracted warning signs. All dogs have them in varying degrees. They're an emotional fear response, and a vital part of dog com...
