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

Mom said i should look at long coats as they appear to have more straight backs. A neighbour has a longhaired GSD who has a lovely straight back - her conformation is more like a rough collie than a show GSD, and I can't tell you how much I prefer it. I've been struggling a bit, having been hobblin...

Re: fear agression

It is difficult, as you can't control when other dogs are going to appear. Is it possible for you to walk somewhere quieter? I know someone who used to walk their dog at 5am to avoid meeting other dogs. I'm not sure I could cope with such early starts though! If you're on Facebook, there's a group c...

Re: Banned due to my IP address

I wouldn't get your hopes up too much... several times now I've been banned but can log on a few minutes later without any contact with admin.

Re: Banned due to my IP address

I asked on another forum why this might happen and got this reply: a) Your ISP might be effectively hiding you, and all their customers behind some sort of giant gateway machine, with multiple "public facing " IP addresses that it dynamically allocates to TCP connections. If you happen to hit a publ...

Re: Banned due to my IP address

Yep, it's happened to me a few times recently. I assumed that my dynamic IP had changed to one that someone had posted spam from and got it banned, but I made a note of my IP address and found that the one I had where it said I was banned was the one I had when it let me log back on again... Emailed...

Re: Dog Agression

You may be trying to go too fast, too soon. This is a similar problem to one that came up a couple of days ago, so I'll add a link to that thread: https://positively.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=23874&sid=ee02d5a28fe028167cb75e236ff70383 Hopefully some more good advice will be posted either here or...

Re: fear agression

You need to increase the distance between you and the other dog(s), to a point where your dog is comfortable. If your dog sees another dog from this distance, give her a treat and move in the other direction. The message is that seeing another dog is great because she gets a treat and doesn't have t...

Recall

One minor issue we have with Jasper is when he goes out for bedtime wees and there's a 'something' (fox or cat) at the bottom of the garden. Sometimes he has a quick bark, other times I get the impression they're just the other side of the fence sticking their tongue out at him and teasing him, beca...

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

I've been banned three times in the past two days :shock: I haven't done anything naughty, honest - I think I keep picking up a banned IP address, but can then log on when I get assigned a new one. Thinking about it, if I make a note of my IP address when I'm banned, then when I can log in again I m...

Re: The monsters at the bottom of the garden

There was a hedgehog years ago... dug a ruddy great hole under the fence between me and the neighbour. I didn't mind, my garden is a bit like a nature reserve in places, but the neighbour was not happy! One night the cat came belting inside, ran halfway upstairs and peered through the banisters. I w...

Re: The monsters at the bottom of the garden

Yes Ari, it's motion activated. Though we need to adjust it as by the time it gets to the video the animal has often exited stage left. I think we can change it to take just one photo, or take the video before the photo. Jasper can keep up the barking for aaaaages some nights. I wouldn't be surprise...

The monsters at the bottom of the garden

I gave OH a trail camera for Christmas. It takes three photos and a three-second clip of video when triggered. We have lots of photos of blurry tails moving out of shot followed by videos of nothing, and lots of photos of nothing followed by a video of a twig blowing in the breeze. But we've had som...

Re: New Dog, Separation Anxiety

I'd worry that crating him only while you're out, combined with the SA, will make him fear the crate. So a pen might be better, though you're still faced with the problem that at the moment he will be stressed when left and if he's not happy with being confined in the crate/pen while you're there, t...
