If you're thinking of taking a job at Petco anyway, do that and skip paying ABC to certify you. Petco will start you as a bather and you'll receive paid training when it's time for you to start grooming. The only downside is that the quality of the training will really depend on your mentor. Some are great, some are just in it to make the extra money that mentoring brings. Once you're certified, you're required to stay at Petco for a year so they can recoup the cost of training you. It's a good way to get a feel for the business without investing any money.

I make my own dehydrated treats with beef, chicken, whatever extra meat I happen to have on hand. Noah goes nuts for them!

I guess I would be closest to number three since I do a little bit of everything with Noah.

Tricks and agility are taught as positively as I can make it. Some people consider a No Reward Marker as not positive, but I do use it as neutrally as possible.

Obedience commands are taught positively and then proofed with a low-level remote collar. I don't want Noah to ever think he can just ignore a recall command.

I saw The Dog Snobs post this on their Facebook. I can't imagine what that family must be going through.

Just thought I would post a quick update. Took Noah in to the vet today and he suspects a partial tear to the ACL. We're going to try 4 weeks of cold laser therapy and "rest, rest, rest, big bolded underlined REST." Which means Noah's upcoming agility trial is out, along with his agility class, daily runs and pretty much anything that doesn't involve pooping. I am not looking forward to this.

I can't help but notice that on your profile that you list one of the dogs pet peeves as "blowing in her face," which is extremely similar to kissing her on the head. Simple answer: don't do that again.

In the past few months, I've noticed Noah will sometimes limp after going on a run with us. It's not all the time and it's not even too frequent but it is always on the same rear leg every time. I give him a buffered aspirin for a day or so and it seems to go away. Am I being foolish for not doing anything more than this? Am I ignoring something that is likely to be a bigger problem down the road?

Part of me really thinks that I'm not doing enough to condition him or warm him up when we go for runs but he never lags or has any problem keeping up. I suppose a vet visit may be in order any way but I just wanted to get some thoughts from the community in case you all had any sort of experience with limping or leg injuries that you thought might be helpful to me. Thanks in advance.

Food & Nutrition > My dog will not eat any brand of food

I really feel like there's a happy medium between feeding your dog nothing but table scraps and giving them some of the healthy stuff we eat. Many fresh, whole foods that people eat are great for dogs so let's not throw the baby out with the bath water. As with everything else, balance is key.
