Re: What to do with my girl over vacation?

I totally understand. That's why we're not ready to leave Wesely with anyone yet. He's now e-collar trained but none of our friends would understand what that means or how to work it properly. That means a kennel at the end of June for a week but one of the other 2 dogs will have to go with Wesley j...

Re: What to do with my girl over vacation?

Is there anyone that you can dog trade with?? We have a small network of friends who trade out dog sitting which is free. You just have to be prepared to take their dogs when they go on vacation. It has worked well for us. With time, friends have babies etc. and while they still offer, I shy away as...

Re: We Are Moving!

Another bonus, which I know was a topic on one of the forums, is fleas and ticks. We live in Western Colorado which is similar to Arizona...dry heat, temps to 106 in the summer but cool in the morning so it forces you to get out of bed and walk those dogs early. But we don't have to treat our dogs f...

Re: Mending Fences

We have our neighbors (about 1/4 mile away) dog sit when we're out of town. I made the mistake one night of walking my older dogs, Moby and Chena, to their house for dinner and then walked them home. I never should have taught my smart Britt how to get there except in a car. We were in Seattle when ...

Re: Dog Friendly Bird Seed?

Well, I can certainly say that while there are some seeds in his poop, it is mostly other contents so I think I'll let it be. That being said, I'd love to hear a little more about what they can catch from bird droppings.

Re: Dog Friendly Bird Seed?

Wow, I don't know. We have about 9 regular feeders and 3 thistle feeders. Our older dogs never noticed them but we've noticed that our new little rescue Britt loves to eat the bird seed. We don't use straight sunflower seed but the regular wild bird mix. Other than having lovely bird seed poops, it ...

Re: Hey, did ya'll see........

I had never heard of JB Pet Supplies and googled them. Great prices !!! I just bought a bunch of toys at the local chain pet store and these are 4-5 dollars cheaper on every toy. Since my new boy is obsessed with toys I ordered some great ones and even got new snazzy collars for both my Britts. They...

Re: Watch out COLORADO and WYOMING .

I guess I'm happy I live in Western Colorado. We were doing yard work while Denver was getting all the snow. Today it was 70 degrees. Oh well......we're planning a 7 day backpack trip in the Wind River Range of Wyoming this August. Of course Moby, our older Britt, will be with us with his backpack.....

Re: Need Help with Symptoms: Shaking Legs & Doggie Alzheimer's

Is the dog on Rimadyl for the old leg injury?? I'm curious to know what the original issue is that he's taking it for. We used to give our Blue Heeler Rimadyl for her early onset arthritis when she was young (6-9 years old) but now that she's 13, our vet says she's too old to metabolize it. She's cr...

Re: E collar question

Honestly, we haven't tried it in the woods yet as we're still training our dog in fairly open country where nothing can go wrong. But, we use a GPS for elk hunting etc. in the Rocky Mountains and it works flawlessly so as they're both Garmin units, we assume that this will work. Of course we recogni...

Re: E collar question

Since we're all talking about types of collars. I have to mention the GPS collar that we purchased. It was pricey but we've been so nervous about losing our new Britt. He's doing great with training but it only takes a second to get a scent and short circuit. The unit is awesome with a 7 mile range....
