Re: Chicken jerky treats from China

YEARS ago, I used to feed the Costco chicken jerky treats. We never had any problems with them. It sucked to stop feeding them when the reports started coming out about the problems -- but wanted to be safe, not sorry.

Re: Feeding Raw

We introduced some organs once the dogs were doing quarters for a while, but we haven't had to buy organs separately anymore. The quarters and backs that we get still have some attached, so they get a little bit every day. We've been adding beef heart to meals lately, to get winter weight on (one mo...

Re: OFFICIAL ear cropping/tail docking debate thread

I prefer natural. I, personally, will never crop. However, I personally like a short(er) crop best. Not a fan of battle crops and don't really like too long/show.

Re: Feeding Raw

Inside, in bare crates. Then crates are cleaned out afterwards. I don't know how you guys can do this day in and day out - I'd rather feed outside. I feed Charlie puppy in his crate when we babysat and it was a drag to clean it out twice a day..... Used to feed them in their kennels, but most take ...

Re: Photo shoot advice

All the dogs in our house have these matching collars for ADBA shows:

The collars were nice for only $6.99! Granted, we don't have the matching leads.

Re: Transitioning from an inside to outside dog

I have kennel dogs. They are by no means, missing anything in life, they are happy, well adjusted, goof balls, perfectly happy and healthy. I spent around two grand doing my kennel set up, and it's not even completed. In each kennel, they have things to keep them occupied, if they are bored, heavy ...

The local meat market -- Washington DC. So glad we have this place nearby to get our food from.

Re: Inspiring Confidence In A Skittish Dog?

She is afraid of things like cardboard boxes (makes it very easy to keep her contained to a room however. Put a box in a doorway and there is no way she will try to sneak past. Forget using the boxes like baby gates ... Definitely agree. Especially if you'd like to help her overcome her fears, I wo...

Ah, ok. Our kennels have tops/covers, so it provides a good amount of shade throughout the day. Thanks!

Re: Leaving a dog alone for 12+ hours

And again, I really think it depends on the dog. Some dogs may be SO frustrated and stressed, they cannot deal with a long shift -- and those dogs may need a stay-at-home mom/wife/dad/husband, whatever. Some dogs seem to do just fine -- with no known problems. Ideal? No. Of course not. It'd be ideal...

Ah, the "it is my/your business" usual comment. Why just not post at all so that people won't give any opinion on a *gasp* forum? That might solve the problem. Huh? Right. Yes, my business, your business. Meaning, I don't ask anyone's approval prior to leaving home in the morning with my ...
