Koby, I would advise you stay FAR away from any Dogswell jerky products, including Happy Hips.

I believe we are all well aware of the issues currently going on with Chinese-made dog jerky products. Dogswell continues to make most of their jerky in China, and has already suffered recalls because of it.

Companies like Earth Animal make a hip/joint jerky product that are actually made and sourced in the US, if you absolutely must do a treat like this.

I've never had to use Tram or Metacam. Ridley does have mild HD, though, so I do have a pretty strict regiment with him in terms of reducing inflation and joint care.

I'm actually using a horse product called Acti Flex 4000 (you can see its breakdown here) for his primary support, I just dose it out for him with a syringe plunger. Ridley gets about 2.5mls x2 daily, the other dogs get around 1.5mls x2/daily, and the smaller bottle still lasts me 2 months. I also do 2000mg of Ester C daily for inflation, as well as a powdered green lipped mussel supplement.

Never noticed any pain or stiffness from him doing this regiment. He's 0 to 100 in less than a second, so I have to imagine its doing something for him laugh out loud

The only one who can determine what "being a dog" is really all about, is the dog himself shh

My dogs are never unhappy on a structured walk. But I can't say they would PREFER to be on one, versus one where they can explore and have a bit more freedom.

Part of being a responsible dog owner, is understand your's and your dog's limits. If you have a reactive dog, obviously don't put him in situations where he is likely to encounter something that will trigger his reactivity. That doesn't mean he should never be allowed to, as they say, stop and stiff the roses wink

Ridley was very reactive for a long period. Part of his cure was structure... and then part was freedom. I never STOPPED letting him do the things he enjoyed doing. I just knew when it was time to cinch up and keep control, and when it was ok to loosen up a little.

One thing I love about Ridley is that he was never mouthy. Mulder left scars on my arms from when he was a puppy, the worst puppy biter I've ever known, and I was prepared for the worst getting a puppy that was his paternal uncle... yet Ridley never even tried. He has always been happy just to chew on whatever toy I gave him, and is still like that to this day.

Excellent, they will be from a VERY close breeding to the one Ridley came off of- which has produced some very nice dogs. Ridley is a special soul and would not have cut it as a service dog, but he has a full sibling who is a trained therapy dog and several others who do other service work. Over all, Lux produces very nice puppies, and Xenna (Hetja's dam) is pretty nice too.

Hope you get the perfect pup!

I bet you'll be super happy with your pup! Jean is great, has great dogs and a great program. I have do doubt she'll find you the perfect dog.

Rubbing pure Vit. E oil on Ridley's patch seemed to help the hair grow back in a little faster when he had a small outbreak.

I'll try and get a video the next time I go! It is a riot to watch, he absolutely loves it!

And Toto, haha, I thought about selling them at first, but knowing how people are here they'd probably have some words to say to me for trying to sell back their own balls lol
