Mine has no interest in chewing... only licks out whatever I stuff it with.

Sounds funny, but could something medically be wrong with him that would cause him to want to smack his head into the house? I have no idea what that could be; but if it's new behavior, you might think of seeing a vet.

yeah, when I first got Cody, he had hairless spots, well really large patches about the size of a fist, on both sides of his body. His foster mom said it was possibly due to rubbing the crate or something... I'm finding that less and less what she stated is accurate, so I have dismissed that. But ye...

I switched to Pinnacle duck back in March because he was having what appeared to be an alergic reaction to Solid Gold - he had been on Solid gold for like 2 years while being fostered. I don't have any photos of the bumps, but they start out as just that - bumps, then scab over & fall off. The v...

My dog has been getting bumps lately and according to the Vet, he believes them to be alergies to something - not food, but source is yet to be determined. He described the bumps as basically doggie acne. His current recommended course of action is to bathe more frequently & keep an eye on it. I...

Reitz - I'm in a similar situation where I'm bringing my dog to the family gathering at the beach. My current plan is the following: Collar: Metal & Nylon martingale (sp?) so that it won't break Leash: Went to REI & got 50 feet of 8mm climbing cord. It's extremily strong and since I'm not us...

My pit reminds me of an old family member who snored so loud you'd hear them across the entire house.

The only link I found was when I subscribed to working bully http://www.workingpitbull.com/ . I usually get the print version, so I don't have any to cut and copy (kind of hoping someone on this forum might have copies in electronic for and could cut/copy). But in each issue, they've got this guy wh...

It's not that you "need" to replace anything; it's just you "might", depending on your dogs strength, etc. But my first guess would be just to look it over & see what is platic and observe if it would be load bearing then see if you can't find a replacement part in the hardwa...

A Springer is a good way to excercise a dog but you'd want to start slow and get them used to it. One thing, make sure to check over the hardware on the Springer. I know a lady who got one to use with her pit bull and she found that there is some little connecting thing that is made of plastic so y...

Ceasar is an interesting topic to me; as I am a new dog & pittie owner but also am an intelligent (I hope) being. Now, I have friends who love him and his methods. I have not finished reading all the threads that discuss him (there are numerous on this board) to fully understand the full discuss...

Not really chewing Heartgard

Cody pretty much inhales the Heartgard chewables I give him. The question is: Does he still get teh protection? I don't see anything unusual come out the backend.
Thanks.

As I'm flying with Cody next month, I've been trying to do a lot of research. I just had a conversation with Southern RI's Animal Rescue League office and the woman had a very helpful hint ( I was calling to ensure there was no BSL in Wakefield, RI). She suggested, since it is a direct flight, to en...

Cody will get super excited when I drag out the hose in anticipation of playing. He sits until I squirt it in the air & then jumps at the water stream. The visual can be a bit much for our neighbors I'm sure, but hey, he likes it and it's a fun when I'm watering the lawn. I just make sure to wea...
