Re: HELP!!! Cockapoo Puppy Bad Behaviour - Constant Barking!!!!

Hi. What is the usual arriving home from work/evening routine for the dog? How does the routine differ from you, versus your wife returning home?

Re: Chasing Cars, Tractors, Bicycles etc;

Hi! We just need a little more information... When they do this running up to other people/dogs, and chasing large vehicles, I take it they are off lead? And you say they have very good recall? Is that only under ordinary circumstances, or all the time? Do they recall if they are chasing something a...

Receiving a Long Term Guest And His Dog

Hi Everyone, First the low-down: Our son has an online friend with some dire circumstances, and needing help immediately. To make a long story short, friend's father has terminal brain cancer, has lost his mind, and is shoving all family out of his life, and his house. In other words, Son's Friend i...

Re: Dog Aggression Toward Elderly Dogs

Thank you, Nettle. I knew you had posted something like this before. What does everyone else think about pinning this where it's easy for others to find? We have always had to manage our girls very carefully, especially about meal times, but it is even more so now. Eating in a standing position has ...

Dog Aggression Toward Elderly Dogs

Hi All, So I've got a question: I seem to recall something having been stated, several years ago, on this forum, about how when a dog in the home becomes elderly, sick, infirm, etc., that the other dogs in the home may start to display aggression toward that dog. Is this correct, or is my memory pla...

Re: Dog Food Brands

Okay, to answer the question about cooking: cooking meat does change the chemistry/mineral balance, particularly phosporous to calcium ratio. Apparently, cooking makes the phosphorous ratio a bit high in relation to the calcium, and that can cause some kidney problems. So if you're going to cook, yo...

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

I know the use of straight up marijuana (THC and all) is completely illegal in the UK, as it is in all but a few of the United States. However, I've ordered some Hempseed oil (legal as a food source, from industrial hemp) online, and have been putting it on their food. I don't know if it actually co...

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

Well after a rather lengthy plateau, and thinking Dottie has made all the progress we can hope for, she is back in the game, and learning new things.... such as how to warm up to visitors coming over, and even how to get along with a two year old human! Since last spring, my bil and sil have been co...

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

Hi, long time no see. In June Annie turned 13 years old. It's been hard, having an elderly dog. :( Previously I posted about how she has cataracts in her eyes, and how she's been having difficulty getting up and down the porch steps (the only way in or out of the house). I mentioned how we bought he...

Oh Judy, you do have some of the most interesting stories! :lol: Well I just woke up from a dream about Victoria. She was in the area for a what do you call it-- lecture? And she happened to be taking a stroll through my neighborhood, and stopped by my house for a neighborly chat. Then she gave me t...

Re: Norfolk - again!

I'm jealous. There are very few, if any, dog- friendly vacation rentals in the United States. And what there are certainly aren't as elegant as that.

Re: He Won't Stop

The sporting outlets that supply hunters often have a variety of scent, such as rabbit and pheasant. It is highly concentrated in a tiny bottle, in liquid form. You put a few drops of that on a retrieving dummy or favorite toy, and play seeking games.

Re: He Won't Stop

I have a Springer spaniel who believes all walks are a snack finding mission. Everything from dropped sandwiches to cat poop is good eats in her mind! (Cat poop is delicious, by the way.) :lol: I have to be vigilant, paying attention to her nose on the ground constantly. Fortunately, she doesn't try...

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

We are expecting very warm weather all this week, today included. I made time to take the girls out to the lake today. I put Dottie on a long line, wrapped around a large boulder so that I would be able to reel her in when Annie was ready to go, and because wildlife authorities recently killed a mou...

Re: Aggression in my dog, what caused it and how do I handle it?

Shalista took the words right out of my mouth-- er, fingers. Food= don't touch the dog, don't tease the dog, don't sneak up on the dog, don't startle the dog. That's pretty much our number one rule around here, especially for people who don't understand dogs.
