I still do this when the schedule gets off and I can see the craziness coming out in Toby. We go back to "settle down" mode...he gets his exercise and his loves and still gets to sleep in my bed with me...but we do more alone time so that he can get more centered (for lack of a better word...

If you do decide to use a "tool" to help with pulling, I'd second the suggestion of the sporn harness. I tried a martingale and a prong on my little guy and neither really worked as effectively as I would like. On a whim I bought the sporn (thinking it looked way to flimsy) but it's like a...

Yeah...what everyone else said...as a general rule most rescues will break "the rules" for the right person. It's all how you present yourself really. I was looking to adopt beginning about a year ago (was 20 at the time)...and I'm a renter, college student, work part time...pretty much on...

Is it any help to know that when I buy a house after I'm done with nursing school that I plan to devote one foster spot purely to Ontario dogs? Having not actually ever done fostering myself, I can't say I personally understand...but having known a good handful of long time rescuers and THEIR woes.....

I'd also try a harness if you have an aversion to prongs. I use a prong on my dog, however, and it works *most* of the time. Only time it doesn't is when he sees a squirrel and at that point he is too amped up to care about a prong correction...so we are working on that. The benefit to a prong or ch...

He sounds like a little stinker lol Do you know anything about his background? He IS a stinker. lol Apparently his former home bought him as a puppy and to our best bet locked him up in a kennel/threw him in the backyard as he matured because as previously stated, he knew absolutely nothing when he...

dont forget you are now fixing all his bad behaviors he has been allowed to do over many years, so it will take alot longer to train him out of it.. Exactly. And unfortunately in Toby's case, I'm relatively certain he never learned ANY behaviors at all. He's still learning how to be a DOG really. H...

I have two female pitties and they do great, I also foster through the humane society and we have had females and again they did great. I do beleive that it depends on the dog. My dogs are not dog aggressive at all, they love anything that walks through the front door. So yes I agree that it will n...
