Re: ODOR

I am a Yankee Candle freak also. Our dog smells is in the basement on our steps by the door. They must stand there waiting and puffing and sweating- because when you open that door it stinks!!

otherwise I keep up on the vaccuuming and candles

Re: Rosie is now A Good Citizen!

Way to go!! That is so exciting. We have our CGC/TDI test next Tuesday. I am pretty sure we will pass CGC but I think we will be taking TDI again. I wish I had the brains when we first got Maggie our first Britt- 11 yrs ago- to train her and get her her CGC/TDI. Now she is too old and is very set in...

he was tested for worms before we got him. I believe- I asked DH about his poops and he said they looked like Maggie's. he didn't see anything funny. I will try putting something in his bowl tonight. we just got done with the feeding frenzy now. It is histerical in our house. Both are moaning at 5:5...

feeding problems?

I am talking about Shafer- we rescued him in July- when he first came home and we would feed him he gulped his food- didn't chew just swallow. We thought and so did Jen that this would pass as he became more comfy in our home and he realized that no one was going to take his food. He isn't aggressiv...

Yes Britts are full of energy and can be alittle mischeivous at times. We went thru alot w/ our Maggie as a puppy in a new house and we still find them challenging...

Training for Therapy dog- having a few problems

okay- we adopted Shafer in July. I took him to basic training and he did well. We have just started out in CGC and TDI classes and we seem to be going backwards instead of moving forward. I need to have him off his gentle leader and since I took him off he is pulling- he is not listening. Also is hi...
