    OP, wishing you nothing but the best. It's not a popular opinion on this forum, but you do need to put the safety of your grandson above accomodating the dog and it sounds like you've really gone...

    Okay then... everyone I've asked has recommended A Click Above, so I think I'll see if I can get in when registration opens on Saturday for their next session! Apparently getting into their classes...

    Agility Class Recommendations in NoVa

    The fam and I just got back from spectating at AKC Nationals (without Miss Dog!) and had a great time - the four wee kids sat, spellbound, for hours. :)

    With time and money just not there for...

    I'm there right now. Rode five or six horses a day, trained, taught, showed for a long time - my life centered around the horses. Now I've got a full-time job and four tiny kids, and while the...

    Yes! Me, the hubby and kids, and Miss BC-Mix will be watching Saturday and Sunday. We've only dabbled in a couple of agility classes but we're about to start up again and I'm excited to watch (and...

    Help me troubleshoot: IBD in kitty

    Miss Daisy Kitty has never been quite "right" digestively since we got her from the shelter two and a half years ago. She had the runs more often than not, and would have vomiting episodes. We had...

    My BC mix started running with me at about 18 months, just a couple of miles at a time, several days a week. A year later, she's now done up to 7 miles with me and is a fantastic running partner -...

    I worked at SJ Ranch one summer in college. Nice horses, good care, the kids had a great time. They ride twice a day and have a lot of other activities, too. SJ owns all their horses and have a...

    I saw the Crocs too. Seems odd to spend the time and money to get the wee one a tiny helmet and vest and then put Crocs on her!

    An absolute saint of a pony, though, who clearly loves his little...

    Nothing but sympathy for this dog and his owners. I went through the same thing last fall with an aggressive rescue hound. We tried meds, training, had a full thyroid panel run, talked with a...

    I run with my BC mix, 4-6 miles/day, and before her my hound ran with me up to 10 miles.

    I'm in humid, muggy VA, and the dog doesn't run if it's over about 75 degrees. That nixes much of the...

    OP, just another vote to stay away from the farm mentioned several times above. I was the "help who lived upstairs" for about a year and while I certainly did my level best with the horse care, the...

    Never seen it, but I was taught that a black ribbon means the horse is being ridden by a member of the clergy.

    Yes... I would have no problem just shutting the bedroom doors if the kids were older, but they're just too young.

    We're still looking at different solutions. The laundry room is big and she has...

    Sweet kitty is an incurable bed-mice chaser... my toes have the scars to prove it. DH and I have no problem just chucking her off the bed, and she takes the hint after a while, but we have four very...

    Thank you, threedogpack! I'm pretty decent at coming up with "games," but when it comes to getting, um, "normal trained dog" behaviors, I always draw a blank.

    if there is a downside, it will be for you. You will likely never go back to traditional training and you will at some point wonder what you could have done for this dog...
  20. Is there any reason why I should not think clicker training is an awesome thing?

    I've got an anxious, worried 20 month old BC mix. She landed with us from family who, while well-intentioned, were in completely over their heads when they got her as a puppy. They crated her much...

    We had the same issue with our kitty, along with chronic loose stools. Barium xray, bloodwork didnt show anything out of whack. We did a week of probiotics (that was all we could get her to eat!)...

    What a good thread! For me, it was the horses and the job that "gave," for both myself and DH. We wanted a big family - little one #4 is on the way now. It was important for us to have one parent...

    Just a quick update on the DaisyKitty... we got her on some probiotics, which she refuses to eat - even soaked in tuna water. We did manage to get most of the daily dose into her for a week, though....
