Re: Dog Park "Right of Way"

We don't have much in the way of dog parks, but we do have similar smallish areas where many people, some infirm, some accompanied by young children, come to exercise their dogs, gossip, drink coffee etc. No way would I be bringing a dog that needed behavioural training to such places, because the e...

Re: Caution About Essential Oil Diffusers

Aside from the issues already mentioned, given that a dog's sense of smell is so very superior to ours, it's highly likely that such scents in their immediate environment would distress them psychologically as well as physically. As you say, Suzette, Aromatherapy used for health reasons on animals i...

Re: Caution About Essential Oil Diffusers

That's a good call, Fundog.

I am qualified as an Aromatherapist and you don't mess with essential oils. They are powerful medicines.

Though I suspect the ones used in diffusers are synthetics. Which are quite possibly very toxic - for us too.

Re: Teeth

I'd be happy with that side. He may have just scraped a gum on something.

Normally - and I do appreciate this is Jasper :lol: raw-fed dogs only get a small amount of soft tartar on the upper canines, and many don't even get that.

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

I have one similar, and feel it's wasted on me and it was a lot of money on a camera I don't use to the nth degree. Then I thought: it still does my job the way I want it done, it still takes good pictures, and I don't need to be a camera geek just because I have a geeky camera. Unfortunately they a...

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

Dog normally has 2 walks per day but when OH is home, she often gets another, as he loves to walk and my various aches and pains are a bit limiting. It's muggy but not as hot as it has been recently. OH waggled the lead at the dog and made the usual noises. Dog, lying in her bed, put her paw over he...

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

They can be such grizzlers, can't they?! :lol: But we can never think they don't communicate. It's just that it's mostly transmit and not much receive. I hope you manage to get your knee sorted. I have 2 dud ones and OH is having to do the dogwalking at the moment. Our one remaining dog has gone fer...

I love the nesting lurcher pics!

Re: the barking/not barking at deliveries - it's possible that J feels more confident with both of you at home. Does he bark if OH is on his own?

I don't watch TV but a long time ago I used to read Anne McCaffrey, and there was a "Harper" in her books.

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

And what a lovely name Harper has!

JudyN, the tail-chasing creates an endorphin release activity and probably has been a lifetime coping mechanism for that dog.
