  1. Well Ain't This Peachy

    General Dog Forum
    This happens to me with my neighbor's boxer, too. For some reason if his saliva touches my skin I break out. Whenever it does, I immediately wash the area with cool water and dish soap. If you have Windex, that works too, provided you rinse it off immediately.
  2. All I Want to do is Play Fetch!

    Dog Training Forum
    I have the exact opposite problem. We can't have toys in the house because saying Colby is obsessed with toys is the understatement of the century. At times I wish I could turn off that drive. Anyway, where are you looking when asking her to engage with the toy? Make sure you're not staring at...
  3. Amalie da bunnice

    Other Pets
    There are few animals cuter than baby bunnies. OMFG. I die. My dad told us we could get a bunny when we were kids. We brought home 3. They were so cute. Only problem was they turn into adult rabbits and turns out there were 2 males and a female. We though we had 2 females and a male. Obviously...
  4. The Nosework Thread

    Dog Sports/Show Forum
    Absolutely love nosework. Colby completed Levels 1 and 2. Ace is in level 1 now. Here is one of Ace's runs: Here's Cooper (my parents' dog) finding a hide:

  7. Temperature for swimming?

    General Dog Forum
    We took ours swimming a couple weekends ago. Air temps were were in the mid-sixties, but the water was probably about 50-55°F. Entirely too cold for me to swim, but the dogs were fine. Colby's been in water that is partially frozen on the top. She's completely obsessed with swimming. I don't let...
  8. Anyone succeeded in reducing how much your dog sheds?

    Dog Grooming Forum
    I use a slicker brush on Colby. We use a comb on Ace. Frequent brushing is the only thing that makes a big difference. Both dogs also get an Omega 3 supplement in the spring/summer which is not only supposed to help with allergies, but with shedding as well. I've never actually calculated the...
  9. missed April's heartworm meds

    Dog Health Questions
    It can take 6 to 7 months for the worm larvae to mature into adults living in the heart and Keechak is right that there aren't any tests that can diagnose it before then. Your profile says you live in CA and I have no idea what the weather is like in April. In order for the worms to develop in...
  10. The typical, "Oh, he's friendly!" GAH!

    General Dog Forum
    People really can be so stupid. I was at the pet store the other day (sans-dogs) and there was a young pit who was SUPER friendly and was greeting all the other dogs in the store very rudely. I saw it play bow and bop a senior dog right in the face!!!! The person holding the leash just thought...
  11. What did I do wrong? How do I fix this?

    Attention All New Members
    I'm not trying to be rude, but it sounds like there is a whole lot of yelling going on in your house. It sounds like your dog is terrified. You're on the right track, trying to recondition her response. However, when you say "they're nice" or "friend" you need to do something besides just say...
  12. Rough Morning at the Vet :(

    General Dog Forum
    Sorry you had a rough morning! In my experience, neutering did absolutely nothing to curb my dogs' behavior. We've done both: neutering at 6 months and waiting to neuter until the dog was well past growing age. I think neutering REALLY depends on the dog. Honestly, I'm a proponent of...
  13. Any Guesses on Dog Breed?

    General Dog Forum
    Holy cow, they are so cute. Now that I'm seeing the other pups, maybe the wide head is Pit instead of Great Pyr?

    You need to make sure you are using a link that ends in ".jpg" or ".gif" :)
  15. Any Guesses on Dog Breed?

    General Dog Forum
    Most of the pictures aren't showing up, but I definitely see Aussie or BC in there. For some reason her head makes me think Great Pyr.
