Choosing the Right Dog > Adopting a new dog 6 months before new baby?
Joey Diego - CGC, Therapy- Dog

Where did mom- go?
 
 
Barked: Wed Mar 18, '15 1:07pm PST 
Hi, so I am not looking for a new dog, but I kind of stumbled across one that I am having a hard time letting go of. It seems like he would fit in perfectly with my current family and he gets along with kids, so it shouldn't be a huge issue when new baby is here.

Am I crazy for wanting to adopt this dog?I little about my family, I already have two medium sized dogs, they are both calm and only need a 30 minute walk a day. This new dog is described as calm, likes to lay down and hang with the family.

Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks!! I think I am being crazy and I just can't get another dog before I have this baby but I can't get him out of my mind.

Behavior & Training > Introducing dogs to new baby

Where did mom- go?

Hi, I am going to be having my first baby in August and I am wondering if anyone has some good adivce on how to get the dogs ready for this big event.

This is going to be quite an adjustment for the dogs, as they are used to being the center of attention.

I have two dogs - Joey is a 12 year old cattle dog mix and Layla is a 6 year old whippet mix. They are both good dogs and seem to get along well with babies, but have never really been around them. Also, just for background, I do spend a great deal of time training them and they are both registered therapy dogs with Pet Partners.

I am not necessarily anticipating any problems with them getting along with the baby, but more wondering if there is anything I can do to prepare them for it and/or make it easier.

Thanks!!

Choosing the Right Dog > Greyhound personality question

Layla - CGC, Therapy- Dog

I will get that- squirrel one- day...

So I have wanted a Greyhound for a while now but I do have one question about them:

I have helped out at Greyhound rescue's in the past and one thing I have noticed is that no Greyhound likes to be touched on their chest. Is this pretty much true or is it because they don't know me? Is it in certain situations? Thanks in advance for any replies!

Choosing the Right Dog > Greyhounds/Whippets and Apartments?

Layla is mostly whippet and she was a great apartment dog as long as she got her exercise. I have heard the same about greyhounds, they just need a good long walk and they are great in apartments.

Dog Health > smelly dog in hairless areas

So Layla has a odor about her. She has always had it, but since we moved from Florida to Oregon it has goten slightly better. IT is most distinctive when she is sleeping in a ball and she gets hot and clamy, then the smell is stronger. It is localized to her chin, armpits and belly. What is the cause of this smell? She gets a bath about once every two weeks. I have enver had a stinky dog before, I don't understand why she stinks.

On a related note, if she hasn't had a bath in a while, she is "dusty". The dust is deep in her coat and it gets on my hands if I am petting her really well, not just a cursory pat. IT is not dust from outside either, it is being produced from her, it looks like a gray layer of dust on my hand. Anyone else have these problems? What can I do to fix it?

Dog Laws & Legislation > The PitBull Discussion

I think that BSL is not right and a waste of time because that is not going to solve any problems. Owner education is more important.

I love pitties and totally want to own one in the future, but I would also be lying if I said that pitties at the dog park didn't make me a little nervous. Sometimes they make me a little nervous in dog parks because they can be really rough and not do well with multiple dogs. That being said, you can tell almost immidately which ones these are and I have seen some wonderful, very well socialized pitties at the park as well. Besides my slight reservation with pitties and other dogs, I have never once been put off by one acting mean or aggressive with people. They are usually some of the most friendly dogs I have ever met!

Behavior & Training > Help.. My dog attacks unneutered male dogs.

My dog does not like unaltered males either, and I have yet to find a solution where he doesn't react at all. He does not attack though. He follows them around and tries to dominate, which then causes the other dog to get defensive and a fight ensues.

I have gotten him to ignore most dogs by desensitization. If we see a unaltered dog I put him on a leash and tell him to leave it and walk to the opposite end. If he still tries to approach the dog we leave. I have to be responisble for him and the best thing to do is to usually leave the area.

How long are you waiting to give the trifexis after a meal? I found that if you wait 30 min then not let them exercise for about an hour the pill will stay down. My vet says if they don't vomit within the first hour, then the meds will work. Jope that helps.

Food & Nutrition > Adding wet food to dry kibble
Joey Diego - CGC, Therapy- Dog

Where did mom- go?
 
 
Barked: Thu Sep 6, '12 6:48pm PST 
Is this helpful at all? My dogs don't like when I water down their food so I thought adding wet may help. Joey already drinks enough water but I don't think Layla does. If I do add it how much should be wet food to dry food? They eat between 3/4 and 1 cup twice a day.

Are there any concerns with feeing wet food?
