Re: What's the substance that discourages them from eating poop?

Re: What's the substance that discourages them from eating poop?

Thanks! I was just wondering if you had found anything to put in their food. I guess sometimes watching them is the best you can do, then clean it up asap. Thankfully my dog never tried to eat his poop :lol: Have you tried to see if they are missing anything in their diet? Sometimes that can be a re...

Re: Ugh im so bummed about this episode

She also had the owners throw treats onto the balcony/porch PAST the wooden door that Sasha always chewed on. Basically Sasha learned that ignoring the wood and walking past it meant treats for her. I too noticed the Kong toy in her mouth but i wouldn't mind seeing all the training! :lol: It would m...

Re: Problems Seemingly Impossible To Solve

How about having a veterinarian tell her how "healthy" her food is.... :roll: My mother in law is the same with her dog that already has major health issues but she just won't listen when it comes to her own dog. Now, whenever she watches our dog, she knows to follow our directions or else she is in...

Re: Problems Seemingly Impossible To Solve

Re: Keeping Dogs Cool

good suggestions so far! To keep the dog's water cold, i put ice cubes in it ;) sometimes, when he lays in the grass in the shade, i give him an ice cube to chew on/play with.

Re: Schooling

The fee is pretty much the same unless ABC raised their price in the last couple of years ;) I don't know if they offer payment plans like ABC did which was a huge help for me.

Re: Schooling

Thanks for the link, jacksdad. I researched other schools too before signing up for ABC and i don't think this one was available as a self-study type course yet. It sounds good. I looked into the KP academy too but somehow i lived in the wrong area at the time :lol: I really liked the sound of it an...

Re: Schooling

Hi, I just wanted to say i went to ABC and was very happy with their training program, with the people i met and it is now really paying off because not only do you learn how to train dogs and owners and everything else you need to know to start out at least. You also learn how to start your own bus...
