Re: Brittany video

Fun to watch, but I'm not sure that I would say that training is "a piece of cake". At least not for me when it comes to recall :cry: .

Re: Coats and front attaching harnesses

Thank you for the input. We rarely get as cold as it was this past week (wind chill slightly below zero), but it got me thinking.

Coats and front attaching harnesses

I use the Sense-ation harness for my dogs. The leash attaches in the front of the harness (dog's chest). Given this unusually cold winter that we are having, I have been considering getting doggy coats (never bought one for my first Brit -- he had a lot more fur than Cooper and never seemed to mind ...

Re: Goofy beahvior

Rescue Remedy might take the edge off. Our first Brit, Max, was terrified of fireworks and thunderstorms -- would pace and pant. Rescue Remedy seemed to help -- he wasn't totally relaxed, but he would stop the panting and pacing.

Re: Phiton Dog Collar

My sons, both baseball and basketball players through their HS years, have those Phiten necklaces and sleeves (slide over the forearm and elbow). They always wore them for baseball and particularly found the sleeves helpful in relieving muscle soreness. It's interesting that it seems to helping Moby...

My Mom has the Neater Feeder for her Westie. It works great and keeps the water off the floor.

Re: Dog coats...affordable that you like?

No coats on our dogs either. However, we live in Northern VA and our number of really cold days is limited. Cooper's coat is fairly thin, but the cold doesn't seem to bother him.

Re: Annaplasmosis

My Cooper tested positive for Ehrlichia (no symptoms) last year and was treated with antibiotics. He tested positive again this year and our vet said that no treatment was necessary (again he has no symptoms). I remember the Vet saying something to the effect that a positive test means the dog has b...

Re: Snake in the house

Oh no! That would totally freak me out. I wish I could help, but other than Cooper catxching and killing a snake, we haven't had one get in the house. Maybe one of the dogs or cat will find it or more preferably, it left the house.

Re: No-pull harnesses?

I've had great success with the Sense-ation harness. It was recommended by a trainer and it really works for Cooper. http://www.softouchconcepts.com/index.p ... on-harness
