Re: Bleeding ears when stressed

Wow that looks sore,poor fella, it's my understanding that vasculitis is an auto immune disease, like rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. I also believe that diet can play a part too, the same as in rheumatoid and other inflammatory diseases But, I'm no expert so maybe she could keep a diary of his sympt...

Re: Demand barking during the night- exhausted!

So, I ignored the barking last night - on and off from 4.20am until 7am when I got up. I intend to do this tonight as well, I'm fortunate that I don't have to be at work or anything so can surf the sofa if I'm tired. I'm pretty hopeful....thanks for the advice. I'm going to post about him barking at...

Re: Demand barking during the night- exhausted!

I've just had an idea, I've been quite poorly for about 8 months and when I don't have the strength to get through I've often slept on the sofa at night with my golden retriever as he helps me to recentre. It's such a lovely calming feeling. Anyway, I thought if I sleep on the sofa then go up to bed...

Re: Demand barking during the night- exhausted!

Lotsaquestions is there a way of addressing this before he starts? We usually walk with around 7 other dogs at night on an open field so catching him is tricky when he is as high as a kite. He doesn't seem happy and having fun when he's doing it, He seems angry if that's an emotion that you can atta...

Re: Demand barking during the night- exhausted!

ZaraD- I LOVE giant schnauzers! They're on my wish list in the future. 3 hours wow that takes patience to a whole new level!

Re: Demand barking during the night- exhausted!

He had MANY ISSUES I had to address, most successfully others not. He has developed a new habit of demand barking for his breakfast at 4am !!! This is killi...
