jesse has NEVER slept or laid on concrete, she has been a total house dog on couches and beds and plush carpeting, yet she has those elbow things too.. Yoda has them too and he is a house dog. He won't lay on the dog beds unless he is sleeping though. Mostly he lays on the indoor/outdoor area rugs ...

How old is she? Have you taken her to any classes? Does she only react to people who are "out of the ordinary" and the one friend? What has her socialization been? Sorry to ask so many questions, but it will help clarify whether or not you truly have a problem dog or if you simply have a d...

I use it on Kailie, it works okay. DO NOT USE IT ON CATS! I have seen 4 cats be burned by it. Also, if the smell of clove oil bothers you, oh man....It's strong smelling stuff!

I also read that letting them lay in the sun helps to dry it out. I'm trying to find the perfect amount of time....enough to help combat the yeast but not so much that the baldy gets a sunburn. My vet didn't do a culture. He looked at her, sniffed her and said "Your dog is covered in yeast.&quo...

I don't know didley about storage mites, but I know that with rodent food, we would store it in the freezer to kill any nasties (larvae) that might be in it.
Could that work?

How often do you wash dog beds/covers/ blankets?

I suck. I only wash mine when I *know* they're nasty and funky. The water is the washer is :yucky: . I was the covers when they're gross, and the fluff gets washed about 2x a year. The fluff is all fleece scraps and it takes 5..count them, FIVE loads of laundry to wash just the two beds' worth of fl...

I worry that they are pulling more than just the dead hairs...
Though I do want to try one on my fluffy feline.

You can train the dog, but you can't train men. Keep doing what you're doing with Helena, ditch him unless he's willing to go sit in the garage with no food or drink and think about how he treats you and your dog.

Kailie likes small fluffies. Preferably white. Yoda likes all dogs who are neutered and the same size as or smaller than he is. My mom's dog HATES...LOATHES pit bulls. Hes cool with Kailie though. If he sees one on the street he goes ape $h!t crazy rabid beast. Which is amusing to me because so far ...

I've just accepted that there will probably always be hairballs chasing me down the hall. We have only one carpeted room, so it doesn't get stuck anywhere-just floats around. I would have to sweep all day everyday with 2 dogs, a medium haired cat and two ferrets.

Both crates are in the living room behind the seating area. They've only recently been reintroduced. Yoda didn't need a crate until his recent freak-out, from which he has apparently recovered (?). Kailie is 'crated' in the bedroom when we aren't home since she has learned to respect the rule about ...

i am a strong advocate for fostering a dog. It's so hard to meet a dog for 15 minutes or see one online and just be like, "yep, that's the dog for me". fostering is a win/win. Either you foster and help find the dog a great home...or you fall in love and adopt yourself. I would suggest fi...
