Re: Stubborn walker

It's very easy to feel that you must be able to make your dog fit in with what you want, that you must be in full control, but it really doesn't have to be like that. My dog goes through phases of refusing to walk to the woods, and appears to be being 'stubborn'. However, these phases have come afte...

Re: Raw Food Diet

I avoided feeding Jasper raw food until he was about 16 months old as reading about it was so confusing and I was sure it would be complicated (I'm the sort of person who would feed the family kibble if I could :oops: ). I did try the odd chicken wing occasionally, but it gave him the squits :( Yet ...

Re: Aggressive outbursts

Thank you so much!! :D What you've told me is pretty much what I've wanted to believe - that a) it's not my fault, b) with management he will in all likelihood grow out of it and c) I don't have to do endless 'leave' exercises, or 'make him realise who's boss', or learn the 'Voice of Doom'.

Aggressive outbursts

Hi! :D I'll try to be reasonably brief, because it's a bit of a saga.... I have a 19-month-pld lurcher who I have had since he was 7 weeks old. He's our first dog, not counting a couple I had as a child. As far as I could tell the litter were well cared for, and from the start he was raised using po...
