Re: Should I change to harness?

Nettle, Just for info, very hard-pulling dogs get to a stage where they are releasing endorphins, so are in a state of euphoria rather than pain. I had not thought of that. :shock: No wonder he is excited also when he sees dogs, cats, ducks, horses, etc. on TV. He is getting his endorphins going. :P...

Re: Should I change to harness?

Sandy pulls and Chile’s himself trying to get st another dog, cat, squirrel, etc. We have tried harnesses of various types, and he hates them. He just stands there and shakes trying to get rid of it, that’s if he let’s us put it on him. He has growled at me. He doesn’t even like a sweater or jacket....

Re: Could you do it?

JudyN, My friend in Albuquerque is on her second pair of big dogs since I met her 9 years ago. She has buried 6 big dogs, as far as I know. Now, she has a St. Bernard & another large dog, but I forget the breed. We knew a man in Maine who had cancer. He had a small dog like a bishon. His biggest fea...

Re: Some bad news

Lotsaquestions, First of all, I’m so sorry about your life situation. I’ve been through 2 divorces including one custody case, and I lost custody of my only SON, a human. So, it’s great that it’s been decided you get Merlin. That’s the major part of it. And, I’m glad your parents are being so suppor...

Re: Constantly stealing objects and eating them!

JudyN, Made some very good suggestions. Our dog also used to get tissues & stuff like that. Be careful since they can clog the intestines. When I was a teen, our dog would get into the waste baskets & eat tissues. Also, he would eat sticks. Took him to the vet who pulled a stick out of his rear end ...

Re: Crisis

Shalista, I agree with JudyN. You have done everything you could to figure out why Bax was whining. Setting boundaries is positive. We all need to set boundaries at some time. Even people need to set boundaries with other people. And, as in Judy’s example of the whining child, boundaries need to be ...

Re: First day at the nursing home

Shalista, I think it was a great test for Bax & you. Now, you know how he acts in this type of situation. I think it would definitely be a good idea to call before visiting your resident. It would let you know she is there for sure & would also give her a heads up in case she wants to have her hair ...

Re: Ranches

I know Sandy would not do well with it. He is a chihuahua and fear reactive. I know he would try to fight any dog, as he tried to do at a Navy Lodge where the dog next door got loose, came to our door just when OH was taking him out, and Sandy jumped on this fluff ball and had it by the neck. All in...

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

I haven’t figured out how to post photos. The way I used to do it doesn’t work anymore. I used to have him as my icon.

I tried Flickr with no luck.
Any ideas!

OH says Sandy is doing well when he takes him to the park, too. Next week on Thursday, he has his follow...

Re: Reactive out the window

Yes, JudyN, is right on. You want him to feel that his crate is a safe and wonderful hide out for him. It reminds me about a TV ad I saw today for a bedtent for kids. This way, they have the head of the bed under this tent with different starry skies that with a night light, gives children a sense o...
