    Our Boxer pup goes in in March for her spay - no ifs, ands, or buts. But I am a little squeamish when I see her adorable soft, baby white tummy. I trust our vet of over 30 years....but even so,...

    To compare our sport to Triathalon by calling it Equestrian Triathalon does neither sport any favours. The phrase was coined to attempt to explain to total newbies the concept of the sport.

    At a prominent show barn here I have seen poles with nails that had been bent over to form a little triangle and then painted over. Not damaging to cause blood, but enough to cause a wake-up call to...

    Cornstart could never hurt it - sounds sane to me.

    Also, time - it will dry out eventually and stiffen up a little. I would not do too much soaking (just wiping) as it will just push the oil in...

    I'll admit it - I awoke last night wondering how she was!! Love dobies.

    Meant to add that I hope she is getting better. I'm a dog lover and when my dogs or horses are ill, I am too.

    Mousetraps - helped somewhat with our greyhounds - those neeedle-noses are hardwired to steal. Don't worry - nothing ever happened to hurt one, and we placed the traps so they snapped away from the...

    Dog trainers use one word commands , perhaps with the dog's name first as a kind of half-halt. My dogs seem to be able to pick the salient word out of a sentence, so sit looks as though they...

    Another thing - use a calm voice - we have all heard people yelling "WHOA"
    so loud it would wake the dead.

    Turn him to face the gate and step away, so that when (if) he spins and runs you don't get kicked. All good hints above, but it is a rude and dangerous habit. And then when he is mannerly for you,...

    I don't have it, but if I built my on barn from scratch would always have in/out with each stall having a paddock - would make it easier to let them out in case of fire.
