Re: Growling Spaniel

She's had a full vet check (but not Thyroid) all ok. Not a resource guarder, toys food etc, any part of the body sets her off, but not immediately. She will tolerate stroking for a while and then start to growl and show teeth.

Growling Spaniel

I have a client with a black cocker spaniel cross, she has just turned 2 years old and over the last month or so has started growling when being stroked and showing her teeth. Her lips flutter in a vibrissae wave and the growl is a low rumble. She is not a resource guarder, nor does she suffer from ...

Re: Scared of everything Chow Chow

Thanks for the link Lucy went some way to help but the problem runs deeper, I've seen the Chow and sure enough it's tail was down the whole time we were out for a walk, only briefly coming over its back when off the lead. It also displayed anxiety at several pieces of street furniture, particularly ...

Scared of everything Chow Chow

Hi I have a client to see the end of this week with a Chow Chow that is ""afraid of everything", telephone boxes, wheelie bins, bus shelters and more! I cant find anything on this, Chows should be headstrong, wilful and stubborn, that I can deal with, but this is something different. Let me give you...

Re: iCalmDog

It is the compactness and convenience that I like, plus it's on a loop which will give you about 12 hours I'm told. I still switch it on when doing happy this with my dog even now, which is what makes it such a powerful tool.

iCalmDog

I brought an icalmdog from Victoria in Edinburgh (UK) a couple of weeks ago, and thought I would share my results with you. I have to say the lack of instruction as to its use in the pack and on the web site was a little disappointing, and that's the only gripe. I got it to the hotel and charged it ...

Positive or negative?

I just wanted to share this article from todays Daily Telegraph published in the UK with everyone. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/lifestyle/pets/10716677/The-dog-training-methods-which-leave-your-pet-stressed.html It has some very interesting facts and figures that (if needed) support Victoria's Positiv...

Re: One of our dog only listens to me (the wife)

Hi four rescues? Good for you. Do you have children? I have found this exact behaviour before (in a two dog house) where one of the dogs latched on to the female because it saw her as the pack leader (mum top dog, shouting at kids and husband etc :) ) but I agree that bullying could be a problem. I
