Make shoes available via the web?

I would love to see It's Me or the Dog episodes posted online. I haven't found them yet, so I assume the TV company (whichever) hasn't done it? They should. Many of the big networks are now realizing the benefit of posting shows online, and that it doesn't detract from ability to syndicate later. If...

Victoria - Have you ever broached the subject of posting video of the episodes for free viewing online? Jon Stewart worked a deal to get Comedy Central to host his shows so people can watch online. I talk to numerous dog owners with issues with their dog, and I wish every time that I could refer the...

I have "tiers" of treats. - Their normal kibble (usually for random reinforcement of behaviors that are already solid). - dime-size old mother hubbard (or similar) biscuits. I keep them small, and these are the next tier because the dogs told me they like OMH better than their kibble. (Show & let th...

I would disagree on the generalization of bully breeds. I COMPLETELY agree that dogs have different styles of play. You can set some expectations based on breed, but not all. :) My bully (American Bulldog) will wrestle with the rest of them, but at the dog park he wanted to play "tag your it" and ch...

Thanks for that Mattie. Just to add to Matties post... If you dont have the time, or if you are stressed/angry/annoyed/tired... and you think you wont follow the method. Dont walk your dog - go and do something else instead. If you start this method and then sometimes you are too busy or in a strop...

Oh and I forgot: I'm in constant contact with his breeder since he's a co-own and she's my friend. None of his siblings have experienced anything like this, and she's never seen it before. I haven't posted on True Grit, the AB forum I read, but we've PM'd and email a bunch of folks who also haven't ...

Sage isn't a drooler normally, he's a standard AB and pretty tight-lipped. The only drool I use to fin were just drippings across the kitchen after he'd taken a drink. This change was sudden and significant. He's drooling pools, constantly, regardless of his activity level or the environment around ...

Insane drooling: left hanging with no diagnosis

Five weeks ago Sage started drooling. He has never drooled much in the past; this is a very marked increase. He leaves a puddle on the couch arm where he rests his head (I've put a towel down since), as well as any where else he hangs out. He hasn't changed in any other way as far as I can tell: he'...

Our American Bulldog, Sage, comes from a hog-catching line, so I never truly expected he and our cat (Tanner, Bengal) to get on very well. My solution is a gate. Tanner lives upstairs and Sage lives downstairs. This is tough in some ways, since it's definitely a compromise that leaves both us and ou...

Spider Bites and Steroids

I'm not sure that General is the right place for this thread, but it didn't seem to fit anywhere else either. Sage got a BAD reaction to a spider bite a few days ago. I remember him springing backwards on a walk and I'm betting that's when it happened. In the next couple of hours he had bumps ALL ov...

Wow, good job with Bella and the float! That's great. Do you have pictures? If so please share! We took Sage to my fiance's family reunion over the weekend at a park. At first we walked Sage around the perimeter and let him see everything that was going on (lots of kids, ball games, people and food!...

Em - Thanks you very much for taking the time to give us advice. We just got back from a training session (pulling). A couple stopped to ask what we were doing and what was the point. I said he was bred to work and thrives when he works, and this is just one of the many ways he can be worked! I said...
