scabby scabby scabby

Every few weeks or so, we go through this weird cycle with Doc--he gets scabby little bumps on the top of his nose (no where else) that look red and irritated for a few days, scab over, then disappear. Then come back again in a few weeks. It's not canine acne because I've seen that and this doesn't ...

OK, I read again and did find that you mentioned people being "paniced" so that was mentioned at some point here, in addition to other things that could stimulate prey drive, such as running and small children. So I take it back that no one mentioned panic. But I still stand by my last pos...

if high prey drive=propensity for attacking humans acting like prey, most of us on here would have dogs with tremendous bite histories right now! yes, certain things can stimulate a dog's primal prey drive, but prey drive is more complicated than just "chase, catch, kill." it can be modifi...

I have one of the Everywhere collars and another collar that's hemp with fleece lining by Planet Dog. I actually really like them for walking with the prong, but they can come apart if your dog is a puller, so you need to use caution . . . . they are good for house collars, though, or as backups wit...

whoever said dogs know "right from wrong" . . . i'd have to say no way to that one! dogs don't understand concepts like that. what they understand is what you teach them and how they should respond to situations. if your dog gets in the trash every day and you never correct going into the ...
