Though the price is right for the bridgeport harness, I don't reccommend it. I have one on Maverick and I'm currently saving for a bold lead harness. It's too heavy and Maverick dislikes wearing it. I try not to use it anymore than I have to, opting instead for my walker some days until I can get a new harness.

There are two things you described that struck me right away. There is a human condition with those symptoms that has also been seen in dogs and cats. It is a faulty collagen that causes joints and skin to be too stretchy. I know this because I have this disease. Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome can be mild to severe and is characterized by the symptoms you describe. Don't count on your vet being able to diagnose it but do ask your vet to look into it. PM me if you have more questions.

I just moved from Texas to California about 3 months ago and it really was a journey. Six cats and two large dogs in a Trailblazer for a few days is tiring, especially in the middle of summer. We at least had a pro mover too. Make sure you get plenty of rest and stay safe.

It's easy to get overwhelmed, but try not to overthink it. Eyeball it and supplement with fish oil to balance out the omega 3s. I have found Raw Chat and Raw Feeding groups on Facebook to be very helpful. Also, keep n mind that you balance over time. You don't eat a perfectly balaced meal everytime do you? Just look at your dog's det as a whole and look to your do to jude the effectivness of the diet. Does yur do have good energy/weight/teeth/etc?
I am still new to raw so more experienced raw feeders welcome.

Service & Therapy Dogs > Thoughts on Rescue Greyhound for Service Dog?

Sight hounds are actually some of my fave breeds (I would give an arm and a leg for a Borzoi), Their temperament and trainability can be more difficult for the average dog owner. They are fantastic dogs but generally high prey drive, emotional sensitivity, and independent nature are counterproductive to SD. I'm absolutely not advocating against sight hounds for SD but, as a general rule, they are less suited to SD work than other working breeds.

Way to go on doing your homework! While I wouldn't usually reccommend a sight hound for SD Jake doesn't seem a typical greyhound. He is worth looking into further. On an off topic note, I'd like you to message me because I wanted to talk to you about your condition. If you don't have all the answers you're looking for about it I may be able to steer you in the right direction.

Depending on the climate, you won't have to do much for a husky. Boots to protect her feet from salt or other de-icing chemicals. Huskies come with their own fur coat. smile

Definitely stay away from Bridgeport. Maverick is becoming harness shy because of that but I would like to get a Bold Lead Designs. Do you need a rigid harness or can you use a soft harness?

In my county they require a note or prescription from your doctor saying you require a SD.

I have flown with Maverick on American and had a really good experience regarding SD stuff. They were very accommodating and friendly. You'll want the bulkhead seating because of legroom.
