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

Glad to hear things are looking up for you Erica. A place of your own sounds great.

Best wishes with the cadaver search training.

That is not an area that I think I could handle.

Re: Where has everyone gone?

I too had noticed that Nettle was being very quiet. Hopefully her stuff will be sorted and she will be back before too much longer. I don't generally go to the Training advice section because I too feel like I am just parroting what was told to me, and that I too still have a reactive dog. Mainly I ...

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

The dogs and I have been doing a 100 Fall Frolics and Finds dog walking challenge and scavenger hunt. The goal is to walk 100 miles between the first day of Fall and first day of Winter, with an added component of a list of 100 things to find. This is the second annual one. I did this last year and ...

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

Yes, my lower half is much stronger than my upper half also. Which is why I bought an inflatable kayak earlier this year. To row the dogs around and work my upper body a bit more. Unfortunately, I don't want to go out alone as I am new to this kayaking stuff, and although my brother lives close by a...

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

Haha Arirr, reminds me of a conversation I had with a small voice in the darkness last night. I was walking both dogs together as it was getting late and rather warm around here too. I hear a little voice out of the darkness asking to pet the dogs. I think the child was at a house across the street....

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

Good News on Sky. She does have a bacterial infection and the antibiotics appear to be working. She hasn't slowed down to any noticeable degree through all this. I have limited her walks to the medium range version even on days when we had sufficient daylight to take in her preferred longer version....

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

some days you feed your dog a balanced nutritional diet of organs, muscle and bone.... and some nights you accidentally dump an entire bag of potato chips on the floor with a food aggressive dog and no reliable 'leave it' cue.... Sorry Shalista, I had a bit of a chuckle on this one. :lol: Health Co...

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

Best wishes Shalista. Sirius isn't a great fan of the Velcro on her thundershirts, but fortunately isn't as upset about it as Bax was being. It sounds like the counter conditioning is going well for you. Sky has had a couple of husky adventures last night and this morning. It had taken me longer tha...

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

Thank you for posting the travel article Diane. We have recently purchased a new vehicle and will be phasing out use of the big van for all but cool weather close by trips. (It keeps overheating with the AC running and I am not inclined to put a new radiator into a vehicle with a failing transmissio...

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

Sirius seems to want to join Sky and me on our evening walks about every 2nd or 3rd day these days. Today was one of those days. We had a much more peaceful walk that we have had a few times we were out recently, and less peaceful than other times. :lol: It seems we never encounter the same number o...

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

An interesting walk with the dogs tonight. Sirius recently went for her 6 moths follow up on her behavior meds and we decided to up the Prozac a bit and she has stopped taking an herbal that the vet had given. I walked both dogs together as it was hot, getting late, and both indicated they wanted to...

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

The new medication is very helpful with Sirius's sound phobias. We didn't have very many days to work out the dosage, so may have given a bit more than really needed. Instructions were 1-3 tablets every 6 hours as needed and start at the lowest dose. We started out with one tablet which worked well ...
