  1. Chester tore his CCL

    Dog Health Questions
    I know how hard this can be. Wishing Chester well for the surgery and you all well for the recovery. It's wonderful your parents can help out. Sounds like you're on your way to a workable plan. Sending good thoughts!
  2. How bombproof is your dog?

    General Dog Forum
    It's interesting to read about your experiences with variability in your dogs' bombproofness with different handlers. I'm wondering if this same consideration can be extended to different environments? Pai is 1.5 and with our normal weekly routine he's probably an 8. We do regular hikes, city...
  3. dog books for kids?

    General Dog Forum
    Thanks very much everyone for these replies, and sorry for the delay in responding - things have been a bit nutty. I really appreciate all the suggestions, I'll look into them. I also like the idea of a novel featuring a character who gets a dog and agree this may be a good way to get him...
  4. dog books for kids?

    General Dog Forum
    My husband's godson, age 10, reeeaally wants a dog, and reeeaaally has no clue what this entails outside of practicing a few tricks with my dog whenever he visits. His mum is thinking of getting a family dog in the spring - she is also not a dog person. It's not a terrible idea, but I'd love to...
  5. Your dogs surname?

    General Dog Forum
    That is an amazing name!
  6. Remind me it is only a phase!

    Bless your mom!
  7. Socalization Schedule -Tips?

    Dog Training Forum
    I'm not an expert at all but am going to offer a few thoughts since this is something I think in some ways we got right with Pai and in other ways we got a bit wrong. I agree with everyone above, to do your best to expose your puppy to lots of new things, carry him in high traffic areas, try to...

    They sound like amazing dogs. Thank you for sharing them!
  9. Washing long white coat parts

    Dog Grooming Forum
    Thanks everyone! I'll go on a hunt and give him a bath in the next week or so - will keep you posted :)
  10. Abhik Abhya

    General Dog Forum
    She is such a gorgeous animal. Happy birthday Abhik :) I'd love to ask some questions about her... How much does she weigh? How often do you have to groom her? How does she handle the warmer weather? What is her relationship to the other dog in the picture? What is it's name?
  11. Washing long white coat parts

    Dog Grooming Forum
    Pai has a big white patch on his chest that's hard to keep white. Now we bathe him not very frequently, maybe every 2-3 months and/or if he's covered in mud, but the other parts on him don't get yellowed like this - like his paws and the back of his neck. Maybe it's from gnawing on bones and...
  12. Teething: What to use?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    We stuffed (kibble and yogurt) and froze 6 kongs and gave them throughout the day (in place of meals!). Also bully sticks and raw frozen bones were regulars in our repertoire. Good luck!
  13. Training goals and progress. (anyone interested in a support group?)

    Dog Training Forum
    Have been thinking a lot about this lately. Do you think that had you taken (or had you been ready to take) the approach of giving him more choice and reducing the intensity of your control (management?) of him, but at an earlier stage in your training (say, 1 year ago), the outcome would have...
  14. 2 problems: Aggressive towards people walking by home & barking at fiance! HELP!

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Re: 2 problems: Aggressive towards people walking by home & barking at fiance! HELP! Just wanted to comment on the barking at the door because we also had this issue. Like elrohwen's suggested, we had to do some management with blinds and keeping doors closed as well, and also did some work...
  15. Those who had their dogs fixed, what behavior changes did you notice?

    General Dog Forum
    I noticed quite a change in Pai, at least for us. And not so much in his personality, more in the quality of his energy and also in some behaviours. Since the neuter he has stopped being obsessive about sniffing/chattering on walks and stopped marking, neither of which were so bothersome. The...
  16. Training goals and progress. (anyone interested in a support group?)

    Dog Training Forum
    Quick update on Pai> we had a little down time following a bad tum and stay with the e-vet, but have resumed working on leash work and greetings. LLW has been coming along nicely and we're now doing regular walks with intermittent pattern work (sort of like loops and serpentines) to keep us both...
  17. Nervous after e-vet - typical?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Yikes. Sorry to hear she had to be muzzled. Why can't all vets be like Dr. Sophia Yin? :( Thank you. He's slowly getting there. One thing that happened because of all of this is that we've let him up on the couch with us (previously was a no dog couch). I am positive it's helping with his...
  18. Nervous after e-vet - typical?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Yes, I think this is a good suggestion. I actually did ask, when we arrived at the e-vet, for them to sedate him rather than try to contain him for any procedures requiring him to actually stay still. This was specifically in reference to the shaving/ultrasound, but later I asked again when they...
  19. Happy Birthday (est), Thud.

    Dog Pictures Forum
    He is such a good looking dog and these are great photos of him. Happy birthday :)
  20. Nervous after e-vet - typical?

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Thanks, Patricia. There are several still differentials in terms of diagnosis, though they've just ruled out pancreatitis as of yesterday and they were able to rule out obstruction and telescoping bowel (which the original vet suspected based on X-ray) with the ultrasound at the clinic. Now they...
