    I like oxtails for teeth cleaning. The butcher sometimes has them and, if not, I can get frozen ones at H-Mart. They work really well, I give the dog a piece (several vetebrae worth) a week or so...

    Exactly. In my mind "I don't want to control my pet's life" REALLY means "I don't want to take full responsibility for my pet's health and well-being". In that case, one should not have a pet. ...

    I understand why you would not want someone doing that, sitting down in your horse's stall, because that is dangerous. But, I don't think it is worth being "livid" over, more concerned for her...

    We had that issue when our VERY dominant ACD was getting old and confused. The, low dog/submissive, BC mix started hassling her and trying to make and enforce "rules" on the ACD. BC mix had long...

    Green Beef Tripe?

    I feed this to my dog once in a while, the canned stuff from Trippet. It stinks to high heaven and she loves it.

    The claims are that it has "good gut flora" from the undigested cow gut contents,...

    Yep, very clean stall, sheet (barn is heated to about 45) and the vacuum. Mare looks better in the winter as she's an extremely dark bay who bleaches out in the summer. She's nearly black and very...

    My dog barks at wildlife outside at night, it is MUCH reduced if I cover the windows near her favorite sleeping spots (my bed and the couch in the front room). I wouldn't use any kind of bark...

    Depends on the dog. My current dog, I do not mind, she is totally reliable with humans of all sizes and loooooves attention. She sits politely when someone approaches her so she doesn't scare them...

    Your usual preparations for an extended power outage, which depends on whether you have a generator or not and whether you are on a well or public water. Last big ice storm we had here, we were...

    Yes, they can. I wish I'd had it done for our dog. We don't know what kind of mix she is, Border Collie and something. We didn't anticipate her getting as big as she has when she was spayed and...

    OP, I know you live somewhere near me. One of the animal hospitals in my town does laproscopic spays. I chose that for my BC mix. At 8 months, when I had her spayed, her activity level was soooo...

    We opted for a dog walker, as our BC mix is funny with other dogs, especially smaller dogs and especially in close quarters. I didn't even try doggie daycare with her.

    Our dog walker takes a...

    I don't think that's a great plan, for all the reasons mentioned above by others...liability and the situation probably won't attract the kind of part leaser you would want on your property and...
  14. Dog VERY sweet with all people, not other dogs...

    What can you do with a dog like this?

    My BC mix is the sweetest, most tolerant, most polite animal I've ever met, around people. She loves them all, never jumps up, is never pushy, sits...

    I did not know her, but what a nice obituary, she sounds like a really great and brave woman.

    My father died of ALS in 2009. NOT a nice way to go. Because my father was elderly, he lived with...

    I feel the same way, though I've only ever had mixed breeds with a heavy herding influence. I could not deal with a Lab every day, I dog sit my brother's Lab frequently, and I love him, but he's...

    Not crazy if you actually end up living that lifestyle you are planning. Crazy if it doesn't work out just like that and you end up in an apartment or something. I'd get the lifestyle established,...

    Personally, I would be pleased to have dogs romping on my grave, but I know many people would be offended. I think it would be OK to walk a dog through a cemetary, on a leash and sticking to the...

    Yeah, since this is a school horse, I'd point out the behavior to your trainer and/or BO and ask for help with it. If he's bitey over his stall door, it could be that other students have been...
