Raw Food Diet > Veggies/Fruit

OK, this is gonna sound gross, but my dogs totally dig it!! I puree spinach, green beans, asparagus, bananas, tomatoes, blueberries or cranberries. My girls LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I also do pumpkin, but usually not in the puree. They love sweet potatoes and yellow squash (but they don't get that very often, mostly just due to me not being able to get it very often).

Raw Food Diet > Can I feed ground if it is cooked?

WOW Where are y'all living that gizzards & hearts are that expensive?! It's the cheapest of the meats I feed my dogs. I can get it bulk at a local butcher for $.89 a pound or for just over a $1 at Wally World. My dogs just love them!!

Raw Food Diet > My dog doesn't like liver! What should I do?

I dehydrate my own liver. I guess I could do kidneys too, just cut the fat off. If you have a dehydrator, put the liver or kidney in the oven on 200 degrees for two hours, then put in the dehydrator. I usually go overnight, but if the liver is a bit thick, I will leave it in all day. I like it really crispy as it's less messy when training. If you don't have a dehydrator, just leave in the oven until it's cooked like you like it smile

Sita isn't fond of raw liver either. For a while I was putting liver & other organs in the blender, then freezing them in a ice cube tray. I thawed them out & mixed it in with the breakfast. Now I use dehydrated liver as training treats & she LOVES those. The vet said the dehydrated liver is ok to give instead of the raw.

Service & Therapy Dogs > Have you been to Las Vegas with your service dog?

Sita & I have been to Las Vegas a few times. Sita loves it!!! We've never had any issues with hotel, restaurant or store employees. They have always been very accommodating, asking if we needed water for Sita or food & always willing to seat us where Sita would be most comfortable. Other tourists are another story. Usually very nice, never had any big problems. I did have a few rude people on the last trip, mainly just really rude questions. Watch out for the drunk people though. They're a kick in the pants LOL. One thing I would suggest is to get a light up collar or other lights to put on your leash & vests so your dog is more visible. It helped a lot walking the strip at night or being in the dark casinos. Also, if I remember correctly, NV has very strict laws concerning interfering with a service dog.

Behavior & Training > Tell me about your heart dog

Although I dearly loved the other three dogs I had in my life, Sita & Tia are truly my heart dogs!! From the second I met Sita we had an instant bond, despite her old family being there. She came right to me & never left my side. Ten minutes later she was in my car on her way to her new life. Now we are rarely apart.

The first time I met Tia, she was 5 weeks old. The breeders told me she was the trouble maker of the litter, the leader & the most dominate of the group. She was the first out of the whelping box & the one that led her other littermates in all their adventures. They said she never stayed still, unless she was asleep. I sat on the floor when they brought her in. She walked up to me, kissed me, crawled into my lap & fell asleep. My heart was lost forever!

Together, my girls are absolute perfection! Well, ok, they do have their quirks, but that just adds to their charm!!

Home Prepared Food & Recipes > Problem with homemade sweet potato treat

The store bought ones were kinda like french fry type cuts. I sliced down the whole potato, but they shrunk up. Not too terribly thick, but thick enough they're crunchy & don't break apart easily (like chips). Both dogs are usually pretty good at chewing things up completely. I shifted the trays a couple of times during the night & the next day. I'm kinda scared to try another batch BOL. I might just stick with meat & make them a batch of chicken jerky. I've been doing liver treats, cooking them in the oven for a few hours on low heat then in the dehydrator overnight. I've also been thinking of doing some pig skin

I have purchased dehydrated sweet potato treats for my dogs in the past & they loved them. So I decided to make some at home. I cut up a sweet potato (only one large one would fit in my dehydrator) & dehydrated it for about a day & a half (the larger pieces took forever to dry). On Friday I gave both girls a few small pieces after breakfast & them we left for the day. About an hour or so after they had the treat, Sita threw up in the car. All her breakfast came up. Tia also had some diarrhea. I gave them some treats again yesterday & about half an hour to an hour after they ate them, Sita threw up again. I'm not sure if Tia still has diarrhea because I've been sick & I've just been letting them out back. Has anyone else had problems with sweet potato? We didn't have an issue with the store bought treats. Should I have cooked the sweet potatoes some before I stuck them in the dehydrator?

Behavior & Training > Reactive (and more afraid at night)

If this is fairly new behavior, along with training you might have his Titer levels checked. Increased reactivity & fear can be signs of over vaccination. Sita went through a period where she was terrified of the dark & her Titer levels are through the roof!! Read " Scaredy Dog". It's a great book for learning how to handle reactive dogs. Also get a full work up at the vet to make sure its not something physical. And find a good trainer or better yet behaviourist that can help you work on his reactivity.
