  1. Foot problems - Second opinion or stick with it?

    Dog Health Questions
    About 2 weeks ago Luna started to run differently. I checked and touched her on her legs and paws and found and injury between her toes on her back left paw, about a half inch in diameter. Took her to the vet and they said it was a cyst, did a biopsy and it came back benign. From what I've...
  2. Gulping food?

    Dog Food Forum
    I have a GSP mix and when we first got her, she would inhale her food easily under 20 seconds... then inhale her water... then throw up, then try to inhale that... I got one of these http://amzn.com/B0028QHN3G and her 20 seconds jumped to over a minute. This was about 3 months ago, shes now 9...
  3. Stress = Diarrhea?

    Dog Health Questions
    We left our 8 month old GSP mix at a 'reputable' boarding center Friday and Saturday night (for the first time ever). When we picked her up on Sunday morning she seemed totally normal, calm as usual but definitely happy to be back. For the rest of the though, she had diarrhea 7 times in less...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    (Hmm is this site not compatible with Chrome? I reply and they dont get posted - trying with Firefox now) Anywho, dont worry I get woken up early EVERY day as well. I just have to deal with the struggle of coming out of the crate and going outside now. I get the feeling she's seeking attention...
  5. Let me sleep longer dad?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Luna, my marvelous little 7 month old GSP mix has decided to change our morning routine. This started about 2 weeks ago. We put her to bed around midnight and I typically wake up between 5-6, take her out, feed her, take her out again then leave for work. About 2 hours later my fiance takes...
  6. Reccomended reading...

    Dog Training Forum
    I'm about a 1/3 into Inside of a Dog by Alexandra Horowitz and it has opened up a new world for me. Not necessarily in terms of training (not yet) but scientifically and appreciation for my pup and her world.
  7. Tricky situation...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Update: So after 6.5 weeks and $2000 of vet bills we are almost at 100% puppy. She is now getting PLENTY of daily exercise and insane amounts of love. One new unfortunate development we are still monitoring is minor pus in her urine which shes already been on two medications for. The doctor...
  8. Help for separation anxiety?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I thought my puppy had SA as many symptoms above were similar. However 2 weeks ago we had to go out of town for a week and she stayed with my Uncle (who I now call Cesar Milan - in a good way). He has a 3 yr EXTREMELY well mannered mutt, for lack of better terms. When we got our puppy back...

  11. Tricky situation...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Thanks for the well wishes! I just hope this period is at least good bonding for her versus omg i cant believe these people keep me crated, restrict my activity, make me wear an e-collar etc etc. I was looking up GSP's today and noticed a big difference, the ears. I always assumed she was...
  12. He hates his crate... How can I help him like his crate?

    Dog Training Forum
    I am by no means an expert (1 week of puppy ownage) but in addition to making the crate the center of all things good (and this will depend on dog/crate size). I would partially lay in the crate with my pup and get her in, pet her and praise her while she was in there. When she will eventually...
  13. Bikeventuring

    Dog Pictures Forum
    Oh I am so jealous! As a road and mountbiker, I cant wait for my GSP mix to be ready for these adventures - only 5 months now. How was it training her to get used to this? Did you try and other harnesses? I saw some actual bike harnesses while surfing the net and have no idea what would be the...

  15. Tricky situation...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Thanks for the advice lil_fuzzy and amavanna! I actually feel like I've made a break through last night with the key words + rewarding. I was singing "go potty" last night and she started to sniff excitingly, looking up at me, circling, then she did it (without having to leave the front yard)...
