Re: Trancing

It's skin irritation of some kind, the bandage is to prevent him from licking it

Re: Trancing

Re: To much puppy

If RR puppy doesn't live there and comes to visit - taking her out for a good, long, interesting, sniffy walk before she comes over may be a thing to try. For the brother, of course... At 13 months it's not very reasonable to expect her to behave and show perfect manners, this is the worst age - a c...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Ridgebacks don't fight/kill lions either. Kids seem disappointed when I break the news to them during our walks, by the way. - Wow, looks at that dog, he fights lions! - No, kid(s), he doesn't, that would be pretty stupid of him. Ridgebacks can keep a lion at bay, which takes a lot of courage and sk...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Ari saw a policewoman the other day who was on her lunch break, trying to enjoy her sandwich or burger, which I didn't realize until it was too late... All she said was "hmmm.. that's a friendly puppy you've got there". God bless her. The 6 year old "friendly puppy" with crocodile teeth almost tried...

Re: Cording a Poodle

I have to admit, I missed the point of this experiment... is it to make him better looking, or is there more to it, some other benefits for him?

i know my dog.. yeah, right!

You welcome the dog into your family. You give him equal rights. You spend years learning to understand the dog. You try hard to even become part dog yourself, and eventually become very proud of how well you know him. But one day you take a step back and realize that - while your were reading all t...

Re: Puppy afraid of downstairs bathroom

Floor (tiles)... smell... different light or less light... anything, really.
Is this an issue though?
I'd leave her be, praise/reward her when she finds the courage to venture in, and let her take her time making sure it's as safe place.

Putting a bandage on the leg

Skin irritation, nothing super serious, but need to stop Ari from licking so it can heal. Bitter apple and such things have no effect on the boy, so we have to keep the spot bandaged. Here is us wrapping the leg -> https://youtu.be/xzzF0re2KBE Pretty proud of both parties - the one applying the band...

Nice! So good when you can recognize little achievements and be proud/happy... rather than only seeing the big things.

Re: My Dog is a Paradox of Agression HELP!

Careful on the tennis court... if it's a hard court, not grass - then is has abrasive surface for better traction, and she can damage her paw pads. (Sorry, this is off topic)

Re: Mouthing?

Assuming it is - I would try to figure how to avoid him getting stressed, rather than give him a cold shoulder when he does. Would he really be able to draw the cause-effect conclusion between him getting too excited and your cold shoulder? AND then figure himself a way not to get so excited? My 2 c...
