I think there were so many serious problems in that household, most of them directly related to the owners' attitude, that VS had to hit the high points and not give as much attention to individual problems as she normally would. Also, I would think that she gages her recommendations to what the fam...

Sometimes for small dogs, the size of the meal is a problem, and more frequent, smaller meals work better. Addy gets three small meals a day, with the third one served in a Kong treat ball rather than a bowl. She eats all three happily, is maintaining a good weight, and is pretty sure that third mea...

Oh, and unless your cats are very elderly or have physical problems of some kind, I would not worry about them not being able get over a standard baby gate. :D

The best possible thing, if you can manage it, is to have the crate in your bedroom at night, and in whatever room you spend the most time in during the day, i the daytime. Generally, puppies need to potty after sleeping, after eating, after drinking, after playing, and then just because they haven'...

There are in fact correct, beneficial uses of doggy diapers and belly bands.

A substitute for house training and taking the dog to an acceptable potty area is NOT among them. This is abuse, no question.

Ouch. The Ceasar is crap. The Iams is not great. If she won't go anywhere but the supermarket for the dog's food, Purina One is the best choice available. If you can get her to go to a pet supply store or a feed store, Canidae, Natural Balance, California Natural, and Innova are all much better food...

Thanks!

The next goal is getting her certified as a therapy pet. She loves kids, and with therapy pet certification, we'd be able to school or hospital visits, which I think she'd enjoy.

So what does everyone think of Tamar Gellar? She seems to be very positive but I can't find her book or Victoria's books in any Illinois book stores. Can you only get them on line? Never bought anything on the internet. I have seen the occasional book by Cesar at the stores. I've seen both Victoria...

When she's hyperactive she's lunging at ppl with her mouth wide open, she's trying to eat things (she has successfully destroyed two text books and I narrowly freed my Harry Potter book from her teeth).
