Re: Leaving a dog alone for 12+ hours

Unfortunately, we can't all be at home all day -- this topic has come up several times, and it's just another topic where people can put down those who crate their dogs for the work day. If you're ok with it, that's your business. If you're not ok with it, same thing. It's like everyone needs to see...

Re: Keeping the Water Bowl Clean

I'm confused as to what causes the green algae growth? Our outdoor kennels have 8 qt buckets in them, and someone here asked me if my buckets are empty/filled with green algae. I took it as a joke, but it could've been serious ... anyway, I've never experienced that. The buckets are not emptied and ...

Re: Teaching Stay on Side?

No advice on the stay, as Kane didn't really have an issue with it. But I'm surprised they sprung it on you like that! When I first signed Kane up for blood donations a couple years ago, we had to go in for a consultation visit first. They wanted to meet him, they put him up on the table, then put h...

Re: I think she wanted to nip me? Advice?

I'd stick with your behaviorist, instead of getting different answers/opinions from a forum.

Yup -- stay away. I'm not for someone who slaps an e-collar on every single dog, for every single situation.

Re: Feeding Raw

Just switch over all at once. You can try to crush it up a bit in the beginning, if you want. I didn't. Dogs got a leg quarter and went to town. Granted, the puppy had to figure out how to eat it, but in time he was a pro.

Re: Feeding Raw

Is there a particular reason you need to grind the bones? Is this for a cat or dog?

Re: Feeding?

You need to watch your own dogs. If they're gaining too much weight, cut back or exercise more. A raw bone here and there really shouldn't make a difference .

Re: Male dog won't hump in heat female?

If you're not breeding your dogs, why do you care if they're humping? That's so weird... Because, should he not be humping? Even my neutered male is trying to hump. Would you not find that weird? I mean come on, something is up.. I care about my dog and was asking because I figured someone might ha...

Re: Feeding Raw

Crates for feeding, so they keep it contained. Kane used to eat his meal out, in the basement or kitchen -- but crunching down on a quarter or back or something send organs and stuff flying! So it's just easier to feed everyone in their crate.

Re: Flat sided pails

Do you keep those 8 qt buckets filled with fresh clean water or are they empty or filled with green slime? Ummm ... empty and filled with green slime? Was that a serious question? They have clean water. Yes, they need to be changed often -- and it wastes a lot of water. But I prefer to make sure th...

Re: Flat sided pails

We use 8 qt buckets in our kennels. Granted, all of our dogs are standard APBTs ranging from 11 months to 11 years, but no one has ever had an issue.
