I now use Interceptor. Our vet switched from Heartguard to Interceptor and we went along with his recommendation. I just can't remember why he made the switch. Either way, we've had no adverse reactions.

My Brit does great with my sister's Golden Retriever and niece's Westie. They're both playful, well socialized dogs and Max loves them.

I also use Nature's Miracle (and not just for pet stains). It's a very effective cleaner and it is odorless.

We wondered whether our Brit could swim when we first adopted him. The first time that we visited my sister, who has an in-ground pool, we anxiously waited to see what Max would do. We soon found out that he wasn't very interested in the water (even though my sister's Golden was in the pool whenever...

I answered "wherever he wants" and that usually means in the cushioned window seat or on the floor in my youngest son's room. Max has never shown any interest in sleeping in our bed and that's a good thing because he would not be allowed to (I am too light a sleeper to share the bed with a dog).

The microchip is inserted with an injector (large needle). I was with my Brit when he got his microchip and it was painless for him.

Janice, I've often said the same thing. I've tried the Happy Walker (beeps when the lease goes taut -- had absolutely no effect on Max), the Sporn harness (again, no effect), Gentle Leader (works, but he hates it), and the prong collar (slows down the pulling, but doesn't stop it). I guess I'm the o...

Karen --

You can buy Rescue Remedy at health food stores (the one near the Giant in Vienna has it). It is cheaper to buy online though.

Car Travel

I would give the Rescue Remedy a try. I use it before thunderstorms and while it doesn't totally calm my Brit, it definitely takes the edge off. Another possiblity for the car is to get a doggie seat belt. It keeps the dog in one seat, but they can still sit/lay down and stand (it's basically a harn...
