I have this problem with Rue too. The only thing that I do to prevent this is actually grabbing his tail, and in the process it actually keeps him calmer :)) So two birds with one stone, until I let go that is. But yes, welts, blood on the walls, pants, floors and it is not a pretty sight. I know so...

Have you tried to incorporate a prey item into it? Have one person stand in front with a tug and one in the back holding the leash and turn it on? I did this with Rue at first, even though it was manual, and ever since then he realized that running on it was fun :))

Last time I talked to the rep near me (about 3 months ago) he said the same thing. They are coming out soon but he wasn't sure exactly when.

Re: Riding in the car

What do you guys do with your dogs in the car when they are not in a crate?? Sometimes Champ relaxes and just looks out the window, but sometimes he will cry and cry the whole way we are going and back? DO you guys have any tricks to help him sit still and relax. I am pretty sure he just gets overl...

Every pup I have had grows in sections, just like you are describing. Take lots of photos! That way you can look back and laugh at the goofy puppy pics :))

Oh I see what you mean. My dogs did that as well but they are very close in age. An older dog, that is sound, will tolerate it better but it is not enjoyable. If your older dog is correcting your pup that is a BAD situation and needs to be immediately addressed by seperating them. When it gets to th...

I think the best way to eliminate the "no" command, because lets face it - it is WAY overused, is to take the dog outside and get some energy out first. Run the dog/pup, play fetch, play tug, play on the spring poll, just get the energy out first and training will be a breeze. Mouthing is normal for...

I am working on the house today (obviously taking a break now) but if I get out and about today while they are open I will stop in there and see if they have any more information and at least get the name so you can call em if you want. There is a recipe for that healthy powder (nut.breweres yeast,...

I am just paranoid about the dogs getting panceritis(sp?). Ok this is getting a little simpler now :) After I get some fish bones I am going to make the patties tonight. I have about 60 veggie cubes made right now but will be making more tonight as well... I think that is going to be the tedious par...

What about fish bones. I can grind fish bones without having someone else do it and I can get them from the fish market in the local store(lots of them). Do you think that would be as sufficient as cow femurs? I think cow femurs might have too much fat as well with the marrow inside. God my brian is...

Yes they have raw meaty beef femurs. I didn't really consider that calcium though.

Damn I was thinking heart was organ as well.... I will have to go get liver then... :oops:

Right now I just have steamed bone meal (I know) but I am looking for someone to make the grind for me. So far no luck. I might just try smashing the bones myself. Organ meat is going to be the beef heart(in the patties) and then on the next batch I will use something else. Either liver, kidneys, et...

Different colors have different vitamins.......and they taste totally different. I'm not a huge fan of green peppers but will eat large quanities of yellow and orange. I will eat a green bell pepper like an apple but I won't touch the other colors lol That is okay though, I will just leave those fo...
