Nothing quite like watching a sighthound tearing the ground, flying.... Love it!

Re: Baby Miles - encounters, and a scary thought

We both have a strong feeling that Miles would love it. 3 times the work :D I guess - still ready physically and mentally, but there’s just not enough hours in a day. Need to not have to go to work. Not sure how much discipline can help with freeing up time. I think we both have a strong feeling tha...

Re: Dog whistle

I guess this is some kind of device that emits unpleasant (for the dog, at least) sound? My 2 cents - I try not to set an objective of "training NOT to do something". If the dog has an undesired behavior - I would look at this as training to do something different instead. In simple terms, with this...

Baby Miles - encounters, and a scary thought

This is for those who like pictures :D Some of the (mostly funny) moments from the last few days..... and a scary thought at the end. http://milestheridgeback.yolasite.com/resources/2019/12252019/B1.jpg http://milestheridgeback.yolasite.com/resources/2019/12252019/B2.jpg http://milestheridgeback.yol...

Re: Doesn’t Play With Toys

It may also be that he will become more active as a result of losing weight, not the other way around.... So, perhaps reduced food intake and just let him settle in is worth the shot, and see how things progress.

Re: Doesn’t Play With Toys

Our boy is not that much interested in his toys either. However - always interested in stealing things that don't belong to him. For example - leave a pair of socks unattended, and you are up for some good workout chasing him through the house. Just saying - try different things.... some paper bags ...

Baby Miles - more action on the beach

Something we could not enjoy with Ari - seeing Baby Miles running on the beach with other dogs. He loves it, and so do we :D 13 m.o. today - still looks like a giant puppy, I think. http://milestheridgeback.yolasite.com/resources/2019/12212019/B1.jpg http://milestheridgeback.yolasite.com/resources/2...

Flying, jumping 12 m.o. baby Ridgeback - not for the faint-hearted :D The boy sure has lots of energy to burn! http://milestheridgeback.yolasite.com/resources/2019/12082019/C1.jpg http://milestheridgeback.yolasite.com/resources/2019/12082019/C2.jpg http://milestheridgeback.yolasite.com/resources/201...

Re: Searching for safe bully stick alternatives...

Baby Miles likes tracheas, but with his crocodile teeth they don’t last like very long... but we have not not noticed any unwelcome side effects.

Unfortunately, nothing really lasts a long time with him except antlers, but like Piper he gets quickly bored with them.

Baby Miles - 11 months

Baby Miles is growing. At 11 months he is an XL size, but an extraordinary friendly puppy. http://milestheridgeback.yolasite.com/resources/2019/SelNov/SN1.jpg http://milestheridgeback.yolasite.com/resources/2019/SelNov/SN2.jpg http://milestheridgeback.yolasite.com/resources/2019/SelNov/SN3.jpg http:...

Re: Dog Park "Right of Way"

But there is no universal definition of “being a jerk”, is there? Puppies or teenagers are often jerks in the eyes of adults (and not just 4-legged, by the way). Is the bouncy puppy, trying to rally everyone up for a game of chase, the jerk? Or the old grump, growling at everything that moves faster...

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

Can’t wait to read the report on Monday morning :lol: Good luck! But everyone wants this wedding to be memorable and stand out among all other weddings, right? To have a very special event, one of a kind, nothing else like it... With Jasper in attendance, this will be taken care of! I am sure no one...
