Re: Homemade dog treats

ill be honest, i didnt taste them =P id consider these more treats than a staple of their diet so you can salt in accordance to how often you give them.

Re: Therapy Dog

Bax had a blast! he got snuggles from EVERYONE quite willingly (though with occasional bribery) and he even earned his stripes as a PROPER therapy dog, in that he helped with someones therapy! they had a woman in there with a recent stroke and they were having difficulty motivating her to move her a...

Re: Crisis

am i a hypocrite? Timeouts are fine , ignoring unwanted behaviour once we've eliminated all the causes we can think of is fine . Think of a child who whinges all day long for a chocolate bar - assuming the child isn't starving, bored, tired, or whatever (which could call for an apple, an activity, ...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

um.......... sounds to me like its a rubbish scent class.... Bax has taken....3? and we all had to wait outside while each dog went in off leash complete the course free of distraction. how can a dog focus on following the scent if theres a hundred dogs yapping at him? :? :? :?
