Meet Chunky! SWEET young Male in Eastern WA.

I LOVE this dog! He is at the Spokane Humane Society in Spokane, Washington. I am new to the area here, so I don't have any Spokane contacts/friends on Facebook that networking him would there would get much notice, so I'm hoping there may be some Eastern Washington folks on pbf that might take inte...

Re: Cesar Millan

I don't know if this has been posted before, I didn't see it here (but so many pages here that I didn't go back through ALL), but wanted to share. I think this is a VERY well-written response from a trainer who spoke out against Cesar and his methods: http://www.4pawsu.com/cesarfans.htm

Re: Rescue Folks: Help please w/ Info you provide to adopter

Bullseye Rescue over here near Seattle has a ton of great literature. I'd take a look at their website :) Thanks so much Stormi. I googled and sent her the link to BullsEye, and recommended she include a blurb atop her application like this one on the BullsEye application: "Our screening proce...

Rescue Folks: Help please w/ Info you provide to adopters?

To All Rescue Folks: Do you have any kind of hand-out or info-sheet with guidelines or responsibilities of owning a pit bull, something for potential adopters? I'm helping my friend find a home for a pit bull puppy she rescued (She's exhausted all of her contacts with rescue groups, and everyone is ...

Re: Synthetic grass

Bumping an old thread as I'm researching these indoor potty options. Has anyone used any of these, or other similar products, that they can recommend? I'd like to have something like this on our patio... just as a backup for when it gets super cold here (we're new to the PacNW, and when it gets bliz...

Re: Behaviorist Recommendation (WA State)

May I just add.... this is why I want the best for my girl, she is my sweetheart (and an amatuer therapy dog to her grandparents)! This is her with my parents, who adore her: http://i427.photobucket.com/albums/pp360/jennieepps/photo-22.jpg http://i427.photobucket.com/albums/pp360/jennieepps/photo-23...

Re: Behaviorist Recommendation (WA State)

Thank you guys for the feedback! (Red, I got your PM and sent you a reply). I appreciate all of your recommendations and suggestions. Such a bummer though that there aren't any behaviorists in Spokane; I had no idea they were so few and far between :(. As I mentioned to Red in my PM, my situation ri...

Re: Behaviorist Recommendation (WA State)

Red has a sticky that explains the differences in titles people call themselves in the training and behavior world that may be a helpful read. There are only two certified "behaviorists" in the state of Washington - Dr Jim Ha in Seattle and Dr Kathy Sdao in Tacoma. I don't know Carol pers...

Re: Behaviorist Recommendation (WA State)

You are looking for help, so you are "equipped" to help her, in a way . Do you know how many owners just don't do nothing at all? Way too many. Fearful dogs are masters at reading body language and feeling people's emotions, as well as being influenced by environmental changes. They try t...

Re: Behaviorist Recommendation (WA State)

Pretty common for fearful dogs to display a change/regress in behavior when the environment changes. May I get back at you tomorrow, with some contact info? Thanks for wanting to help your dog and looking for the right people for that. :) I had a feeling the move didn't help things (along with my o...

Behaviorist Recommendation (WA State)

Hey all...  Could anyone recommend a behaviorist to me, or direct me to where I might research and find one?  (And if I find one, what qualifications, etc I may need to look for). I'm now in Spokane, Washington, which is in Eastern WA (5 hours east of Seattle).  And I'm looking for someone who can h...
