Behavior & Training > Barking at nothing
Scout

I love my shiny- ball
 
 
Barked: Fri Nov 21, '08 4:53pm PST 
lol ... middle name for a Sheltie ... barking at nothing ...
the best one was when we were camping and finally figured out he was barking at the garbage bag hanging in the tree (you know how you are supposed to keep your garbage high) too funny
and recently we discovered, how to stop the barking when he is on our bed. I would keep him on the bed when I was watching TV at night but he kept ... barking at nothing ... finally figured out it was shadows on wall ... leave him on the floor and no barking.

Australian Cattle Dog > Chewing the W R O N G things-[help]

I like to chew everything and it is clearly because I'm bored .. the older I get the worse it becomes. I need more exercise and more toys which are ACD acceptable. A sleepy ACD puppy is the best to have .. just scratch my tummy .. I will love you forever.

Our 3 mos old cattle dog seems to have the same issues. Mean Barking at other dogs, and when men come to the house, he has no problems with my sister. We are starting to give other people treats to get him to come to them. He needs to more socialized and we are working on that. Our breeder's dogs are well socialized and they have no problems. He has typical puppy issues right now. Mouthing and nipping and my breeder says to keep working with him and he will grow out of it.

Shetland Sheepdog > FLEAS!! Any suggestions for my poor girl

advantage works for our family. if you have an infestation you have to treat your house and every animal in your house. wash all bedding for everyone with hot hot water. vaccuum the snookies out of everything that doesn't move. advantage once a month for all animals from spring to fall. we went thru this once and it has never happened again .. thank goodnes.

Shetland Sheepdog > Help! my dog weighs too much and can't find a way to make her lose weight
Scout

Scout is very heavy 30 lbs. The vet has me feeding 3/4 c daily of Purina Pro Plan, more exercise, and absolutely no table scraps (Dad is a pushover for that cute Shelie face). If this doesn't work she is going to check is thyroid. I didn't know that Shelties were prone. Scout is in agility as well but so far I don't really see any improvement. My groomer also thinks I should have his thyroid checked. Any thoughts anyone?

Shetland Sheepdog > Ears?

Scout

I love my shiny- ball
 
 
Barked: Fri Jul 25, '08 5:49pm PST 
My breeder glues the ears with fabric glue to tip them. Only the inside and just a bit. She left it up to me whether I wanted to go thru the process. Once I saw one dog with one ear up and one ear down I decided to do the glueing. I love his ears tipped and wouldn't have it any other way. The breeder did this for me. I took him once a month till he was almost six months. Once the adult teeth are in you're done. Not really a hardship because his ears, feet and bum got trimmed every time and he also got to play with any young dogs in her kindergarten area. Well worth it and I would recommend it to any new owners.

Australian Cattle Dog > cattle dog in the city?

Argus

Scout's little- brother
 
 
Barked: Fri Jul 11, '08 5:14pm PST 
Our little ACD is a bundle of energy. They need to be exercised lots and need a job to do. Long walks off leash if you can do it .. I know hard when they are puppies. They are just so fast it is almost heartbreaking to keep them tied. My son plans on agility when he is old enough and puppy kindergarten of course .. they need a firm hand.

I have no experience with this breed but my son has a new ACD puppy. He seems to be agressive when it comes to eating ... he eats fast and then will proceed to eat my sheltie's food and the cat's food ... I am trying to get my son to interrupt during his eating ... the last thing we need is to have a dog possessive of his food

Shetland Sheepdog > A Sheltie's coat.
Scout

I love my shiny- ball
 
 
Barked: Fri Jul 11, '08 5:01pm PST 
Scout is almost two yrs old and has a very thick coat and mane. When we are walking we gets a lot of comments from other sheltie owners wishing their coat was thicker. I think the coat is as individual as their personality.
