The trainer we had for puppy class suggested several things. As pocketpit mentioned, putting a large object in the middle of their food bowl - like another heavy bowl or a rock will make them work for the food and slow them down. Liesel gulped her food, so we would basically float her food in water....

A rubber curry comb/brush works well on short haired dogs.

I have a friend that feeds her 3 German Shepards Solid Gold Hund-n-Flocken and swears by it. She also uses the SeaMeal supplement. I fed Liesel the Solid Gold and she liked it and did well but had terrible gas. I'm feeding Innova now.

It may take them awhile to get there and I'm not sure how much they charge for windshield time, but I can mention it to them.

The ladies that clean our house use vinegar. It seems to work well but I really don't like the house smelling like a pickle factory when I get home. :crybaby:

I can offer a testimonial. We fed our Weimaraner Purina O.N.E. and ProPlan all her life (14 years). She seemed to do just fine on it and we didn't give it a second thought. After reading a lot about foods on various forums we decided to feed a premium food (Canidae) to Liesel, and I am amazed at the...

Pedigree is a substandard food. I hate to say that because Pedigree/Masterfoods is a major customer of ours. Liesel has been on Canidae for awhile and she appears to be doing great, no farting. We tried Solid Gold which I think is a good food but was fart city for Liesel.

Liesel got the ProHeart 6 shot and had no problems with it that I could tell. In fact I just got a notice from the vet that she is due for the next shot. If it didn't bother her the first time, I'm assuming its ok with her system.

It's a treat!! Cat poo is even more delectable. But seriously, there are things you can buy to feed your dog that supposedly make it taste bad. The best way to keep it from happening is to pick it up so it's not there to be eaten.

Our old dog always horked up the white rawhides. Quite often there wouldn't be any of it left in the mess, but that was definitely the cause. No rawhides no barf.

Treating after they have heartworms damn near kills the dog! Have them checked and get them on the monthly pill or get the bi-annual shot. I use the shot because I'm terrible at remembering that monthly pill.

Styptic powder or you can buy it as a jar of cloth pads that are impregnated with a liquid styptic solution. Most pet stores sell it. If you really cut it good, it will take a couple of applications to stop the bleeding. If Ruby will wear an old sock that will help to keep her from licking her nail ...

Liesel is almost 8 months old now and we clip her nails every week or two. She has never let us do this calmly. You would think after 40-50 nail clipping sessions she would be used to it. I hold her in my lap on her back and my daughter has a piece of string cheese burried in her hand so that just t...
