Crate her when you can't watch her. Keep the door shut if there is a door to the office. You could also put up a baby gate to block her access to the room. Clean up the area she keeps soiling on with a pet specific enzymatic cleaner if you haven't done so already.

Food & Nutrition > How to determine what ingredient is causing food allergy???
Lily

To determine food allergies, many Vets suggest an elimination diet. An elimination diet is typically done over a period of several weeks. This usually means a hypoallergenic prescription diet or a home made diet. The home made diet consists of one protein and one carbohydrate that your dog has never had before. If you see improvement after a few weeks then you can start adding things back into the diet and see if there is a positive or negative response to any changes in the diet. Are you sure it's a food allergy and not an environmental allergy? Itchy paws and belly may also indicate an environmental allergy.

Stop grabbing and shutting his mouth when he starts barking! That will NOT help and actually could just be escalating the problem.

Is he barking at men? Is he barking if the people look at him? Does he bark if the people talk to him a high pitched excited voice? Does he bark if the dogs stare at him? Does he bark if the dogs want to play? Does he bark if the dogs are showing aggression? Start paying attention, you may start to notice what triggers the barking. Of course sometimes, just seeing other dogs or people is the trigger for some dogs.

If he starts barking at people or dogs, get his attention and walk in the other direction back to the point where he stops barking. Start from there, the point before he starts barking, that's when you can give treats for not barking at dogs and people. If he starts barking or doesn't take treats, then you're too close and need to move away. In time you can build up and move closer to the barking triggers. You may want to ask him to "look!" or "look at that!" then reward him for looking and staying calm and quiet while looking at the barking triggers.


Hope this this helps.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - April 22, 2015 - TFH Publications, Inc./Nylabone Products, of Neptune, NJ is recalling one lot of its 1.69 oz. package of the Puppy Starter Kit dog chews, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain.

Some Boston Terriers are a lot of dog in a small package and a lot of them tend to be high energy. I'd stick with a Pug if you want a low energy dog.

Dog Health > Body Condition Scoring-- is he too thin?

Lily

Woof!
 
 
Barked: Fri Apr 17, '15 9:08am PST 
If you think he is ideal weight, and from your description he sounds ideal weight, then I wouldn't worry about it. Does the Vet suggest he should gain weight or just comment that he is skinny?

This blog post has some nice visuals and explanations to go by for body scoring which are a bit more in depth than the standard body scoring charts. (Just remove any spaces that may appear in the URL when you copy and paste.) http://www.successjustclicks.com/fit-fido-or-fat-fido/
