    Well, there are a few things.

    1. Moderate resource guarding when given a very high value object (like a pig ear) is considered completely normal dog behavior.

    If your puppy grumbled at the...

    Well, the "pit bull" category in this study includes American Pit Bull Terriers, Am Staffs, and Staffordshire Bull Terrers, but otherwise I think this is what you're asking for... Applied Animal...

    I definitely agree this is a “people problem” at its core, but an important fact to not gloss over here is that pit bulls ARE more likely to be dog aggressive than many other breeds.

    Before I say...

    I just pulled out the list of quotes from a year ago (I can't even believe I still have them!). Everything is a laproscopic quote unless otherwise indicated.

    Local hospitals:

    I'm so sorry about your dog, that is awful. I can't imagine going through that.

    As a general FYI for anyone reading this thread, many "known" risk factors for bloat aren't actually risk factors at...

    Like Kat_Renee, I've had good luck sitting cheap cardboard scratchers right next to the spot on the furniture where the cat is scratching... 99% of the time they choose the thing that is designed for...

    48 hour update: I think we're home free! Minus some burping on Monday night, Chewie never even had any digestive upset. Insides made of steel, apparently.

    Here's a photo of my lovely boys, so...

    24 hour update: both patients are doing well, although the Briard had a bit of gas last night (no shock there!).

    24 hours to go! Thanks for the jingles and advice, it is all greatly appreciated.

    The leftovers were unfortunately from Saturday evening (the trash was going to go out with me when I left for work). Also unfortunately, my Sheltie was nearby and I suspect that led the Briard to...
  10. My dog ate a whole rotisserie chicken carcass

    My young Briard (almost 2) knocked over the trash can while I was getting ready for work this morning and ate an entire rotisserie chicken carcass. :eek:

    I've called the vet and fed him a bunch of...

    This is where education comes in.

    The high initial purchase price of a puppy from a reputable breeder is "paid back" over the life of the dog in better temperament, fewer vet bills, and easier...
  12. But the third option you didn't list is most...

    But the third option you didn't list is most ideal: getting a puppy from a reputable breeder.

    Sure, there are some crazies out there with unreasonably high standards, but if a breed is a good fit...

    I cannot speak for others, but for me what is upsetting is not that the OP bought a puppy from a less-than-ideal breeder. I could never be upset with someone for not knowing better as a puppy buyer....

    Refund part or all of the puppy buyer's money and seriously re-evaluate their breeding stock. And possibly reach out to the owners of the other puppies in the litter. Irresponsible breeders do none...

    Can you bring a tripod along and video? It's hard to remember little details, and there's a lot you'd like to look at... if you video you don't have to worry about remembering anything or trying to...

    I've had good luck with the inflatable collar type (Kong brand example here) and with the BiteNot neck brace style collars.

    A lot of what works will depend on the individual dog's flexibility and...

    Training in the ring is not permitted in most dog sports. You couldn't recall your dog to you and stop him in an agility class, either; you'd be DQ'd for training in the ring.

    Just because you...

    Dogs are smart enough to learn to distinguish between different situations and stimuli, given time and proper training.

    My dogs are very toy motivated. If I throw a toy, they will chase it down...

    My cats' respective names when adopted were "Cuddles" and "Friendly." :dead:

    Maybe not standard names, but definitely stoopid.

    "Socks" is definitely up there on the list of way-too-common cat...

    My vet swears that FortiFlora is in a league of its own, compared to other dog probiotic products on the market.

    I've used it with success, but I have noooo idea the state of the research in this...

    Thanks to those who suggested Cosequin for my "special" kitty's pee problems... I picked up some last night and ordered a larger box that will arrive in a few days. I also placed a call to our...

    In my mind, Cane Corsos are not even in the same league as Presa Canarios.

    Yes, Cane Corsos are powerful dogs that can become aggressive if poorly handled. Yes, they are a poor choice for an...

    He's done the peeing-on-furniture thing since I adopted him at 11 months. He lived with a foster from 7 weeks-11 months and she had WAY TOO MANY animals, so I suspect the peeing was a habit picked up...

    This kid was definitely under 4, he was just a little guy. I'm not great with guestimating child ages, but he must have been under 2... he was still a little unsteady on uneven ground, barely...

    I have an 8 year old cat who has developed a lot of "standard" older cat issues in the last year.

    He's always had some litterbox issues. Each of places I've lived, he's picked one piece of...
