I have just found someone who is teaching Rally so I am planning on taking Lucy. I am still continuing on with her Agility work but think the exposure to a new place, new dogs, will really help her and I have always been interested in getting into Rally. It will also teach me more about Rally so I can do it with Kris, the Dobe, when she is old enough. I am just doing some Obedience with Kris right now as she is just four months old at the end of the month.

We are having our last drop-in Agility practice this coming Saturday then we will have to do our training at home as there are no more classes for a while.

Dog Health > Taking a newly spayed dog for a walk in a state park?

I got Gypsy, my Shih Tzu x Maltese spayed about a week ago. She is a quiet little dog (3 1/2 years old) so after a few days, I started putting her outside on my big porch which is about ten feet off the ground as it was nice and sunny out. She just wandered around or slept in the sun. It has a small fenced area built off it.

The third day she was out there, I went down the stairs alongside my house, and she met me down there. I could not figure out how she could have gotten down there so the next day I watched her. She climbed up on the dog house roof, and would have squeezed through the railing if I had not stopped her. From there she must have dropped down onto the aluminum roof over my stairs, then slid down and dropped about six feet onto the ground. She seemed to be fine and no after effects but I made sure I moved the dog house!!

Dog Health > Advice please my puppy is missing toes

Dogs have four toes on each foot. They can also have dew claws which are slightly higher above their foot but sometimes they are removed. The same with the back feet, usually depending on the breed, some dogs have one dewclaw or sometimes double dew claws.

Do you mean one of the four toes is missing or the dew claws?

I first heard of this recipe using tuna as I can get it pretty cheap but have also used it with a can of dog food, sardines. My sister has used the left over gravy from a roast. I have cut up the last scraps of chicken (which does not work as well as you get chunks so have to cut it up really small).

My dogs love it with the tuna, will have to try it with salmon. thanks.

After all the mistakes I have made with Remmy, I am not going to be in a big hurry to start trialing with Lucy. She is very smart, fast and does all the equipment but the weave poles but with Remmy I did not have the advantage of a qualified instructor like I have with Lucy. She is just over a year so I have lots of time to put in the foundation that Remmy never got.

Reading that article I can look back and see all the stress markers that Remmy has shown, especially the zoomies. I am glad I went back to square one with him on my handling and I can see the difference in him already. He breezed through his starters, did alright in the Advanced but now he is in Masters, it was starting to catch up to us.

Dog Health > Dental for a 12yo?

I had Remmy into the Vet to have his ears checked and when he checked his teeth, he at first said they were in good shape, but then noticed he had a loose tooth. I took him in yesterday and they pulled the loose tooth and did a dental cleaning at the same time. It cost me $160.00 but they also gave me a 5 lb. bag of T/D Oral health small bites which are about $35.00 a bag so it was very reasonable. It helps that they also give a Seniors Discount.

The last Shih Tzu I had was only just over 8 lbs. at four months and matured at 14 lbs. Sounds like your puppy is going to be a lot bigger. Did you have him weighed at the Vet so you have an accurate weight as over 11 lbs. seems awfully big.

We have a real problem in our area with people putting on "Agility" classes without knowing what they are doing. Their argument is that they are just doing it "for fun". I have seen so many dogs falling off the dog walk at the full heighth, leaping off the teeter when it is still up in the air and being soured on going through tunnels as they have it out full length with a curve in it.

The people putting on the classes have never competed,know nothing about handling or safety. There is one class starting next Thursday and I shudder to think what it is going to be like. They had a 4 month old Border Collie in their class last year, trying to do all the equipment, even the weaves. I tried to talk to them but since their "friend" has said it was fine they would not listen to me. Wish there was some sort of Certification they would have to provide before putting on classes. That applies to Obedience classes as well.

I have what would probably be considered a non-traditional Agility dog, a Shih Tzu x Maltese. He breezed through his Starters, took a little longer to go through his Advanced and we still have two Advanced Snooker to move into all Masters Classes. I know what you mean about heading for that last obstacle knowing you are getting close to time. Two of his last Snooker classes, one he was on the teeter as it was going down and the whistle blew, the other he was turning the last weave pole and the same thing. He missed out on a Masters Gamblers his last trial by 3 seconds.

Congratulations on getting there, gives us all hope!
