    My dachshund Aengus is on Prozac, and our trainer today said he's her Prozac poster child. He was very fearful, reactive, and timid when we got him a year and a half ago. He's a whole different dog...

    Unfortunately just about anybody can call themselves a behaviorist or trainer or whatever. It definitely seems akin to the "out of sight out of mind" kind of attitude and is not positive...

    My friend got me one of those lead ropes a few years ago and it was great. My horse dropped it into the manure conveyor belt and it got mangled, but I loved it while it lasted.

    I picked those up last year just to wear as ordinary driving gloves, but ended up wearing them to the barn occasionally and I think they're as warm or warmer than my SSG training gloves, which are...

    I get irritated with a lot of Ariat products lately but I will say that the Ariat jackets I've had have all been warm and fitted to be fairly flattering for a short person. (I'm 4'10".)

    I also...

    I second the suggestion to try to contact a veterinary behaviorist. Prozac usually takes quite a while to really take effect, so it might be an issue with adjusting the dosage. You don't want to...

    Look up desensitizing/counterconditioning (DS/CC). The idea is every time a scary or different or unusual stimulus appears, treats rain down, until they associate the stimulus with good happy...

    I like the EIS mostly for the airflow and sun protection, don't know that it makes me feel considerably cooler, but it's very comfortable. Another boarder at my barn went up a size when buying and...

    I have an ECP sheepskin corrective pad that I like a lot. It has gel shims rather than the foam.

    GraceLikeRain, that's my one cat exactly!

    I do add water to their food, but maybe I should add some more. I wonder if they'll eat baby carrots like the dogs do to fill them up?

    Thanks Paks! I'll look into all of those.

    And keep in mind also that not every individual in a breed known for agility will necessarily be good at it. My trainer has a gorgeous BC with stellar breeding, but he just does not get agility. ...

    My cats each get 2/3 of a pouch of good quality wet food twice a day, along with a little bit of Wysong Uretic dry. One has chronic cystitis so this works well for controlling that. All three cats...

    I see a lot of Shelties, but all but one I know are definitely barkers. Paps do seem to do really well. I like the corgis and Valhunds, and there's a Havanese I see at trials who is the cutest...

    I do have paddock boots and half chaps as well as nice comfy broken-in field boots, so they're not my only option--I just want them broken in enough to not kill me sometime this decade. ;)
