  1. I posted about this before but just a heads up again that the SPARCS conference is June 19-21. This is a canine science conference but I'm anticipating that many of these lectures will be pertinent to all of us. Learning is learning - across species The livestreams are free. If you want to watch video later, you have to get a paid subscription. These are top behaviorists, ethologists, biologists, psychologists and neuroscientists and they will be talking about dogs, dogs, dogs for 3 days. You can see the 3 day schedule on this page, as well as the speaker bios. Friday's general theme
  2. My sis is allowing me to bring my dog to Thanksgiving this year as we don't have anyone who can watch him right now. But, she lives on a farm and her animals are usually not allowed in the house. However, since one of their 2 beloved labs was killed 2 months ago, she has relented and allows her lonely lab in the house, but only if he stays on his "pillow." So, my labradoodle is used to the run of the house, so we are working on "go to spot". He does so willingly as long as we have treats. However, if I move away, his "stay" doesn't always stay. He loves people and would follow them any
  3. Hey dog people, Why does my dog (a 4yo full sized labradoodle) have a milky, translucent eye goop every morning? I had attributed it to seasonal allergies, which he does seem to suffer from (lots of scratching during those seasons.) But, it is nearing winter, well past the first frost, and he still gets this in the mornings. He did have an eye infection over a year ago and that goop was more yellow in color. He is on high quality kibble and wet food. Is this normal? While I like our vet - he is rather low key - I am pretty sure he will downplay it or tell me to just give him Benedryl
  4. Please give me suggestions and I'll start researching. Dog hair is driving me crazy! Our current vacuum just isn't doing a good enough job. What suggestions do you have for me that won't cost an arm and leg? :tongue_smilie:
  5. I have a 3 yo labradoodle who needs long walks to keep him tired enough to stay out of trouble. I usually walk him for about 45 minutes to an hour every morning. One thing I can't seem to find any information on is how to keep his paws healthy. When we take walks on very cold days (he doesn't poop without going for a walk, so not walking is not really an option), I worry that his paws are getting too cold. We had a spate of single digit temperatures. I did shorten his walk on those days to only 25-30 minutes. Most of the time, he seems just fine. He just seems to want to walk a little f
  6. We recently adopted a doxie mix from a shelter. We try to involve him as much as possible in our daily activities (we stay home quite a bit) but the little guy inevitably ends up spending a lot of his day (about 16 hours the last time we counted) sleeping in his crate/ bed or lazing about in the small amount of sun we get every morning (it's a cold winter in our normally sunny climate). This is despite our being home. We are just intense learners and like having our learning time. Is it normal for a dog to sleep so much? He's full-grown, about 4 years old and is healthy and happy overall.
  7. Ok, I know I am rotten for not loving dogs so please no flames. It is not as if I hate them, I would just rather stay animal free. However. DD wants a puppy to love so badly I am willing to change my ways. Her best friend just got a pug puppy and her love for the puppy is just too much to ignore. She is incredibly mature and responsible, so I am thinking of next spring for her birthday. I know that if I get an animal, I will love it too and it will be family, which is why I have been avoiding this for so long. I do not want to love a puppy LOL. So, the criteria: As small as poss
  8. We doggy sat a lost Lhasa Apso for half a day recently (it followed me inside while I was unloading groceries, so we let neighborhood security know to send the pup's owner to our house to claim him, rather than let the pooch run around the streets). We all loved it, but obviously half a day is nothing near full time duty. We found some for sale near us. I completely, totally want one. DH says "research, ask the dog sitter we use, then we can think about it." So, Hive, you are part of my research. :D I did read up on them and see they aren't so great with really young kids (
  9. The hot spot is the size of a half-dollar. He had a mat on his thigh (outside) yesterday and was licking. I scissored it away this am and found the spot. Can't get to the emergency vet (and would rather not pay the extra $50 if we could hold off until Monday, to be honest). What can I put on it now to help?
  10. We are still looking and searching for our doggie. :001_smile: There are so many available and I am no expert by any means. You've given me great breeds to look for & some mixes even. I am worried about house breaking, a dog that barks incessantly, or one that nips. I am aware that good dogs can be found at the pound. I am hesitant because I don't really know what to look for........ Any thoughts or tips?
  11. Apache (until we decide on a new name, we're using his name from the rescue, since he responds to it) is here! He's definitely the size listed in the Pet Finder ad, 27 pounds, not the 17-18 the rescue lady I spoke with thought he was. He's also not quite as leash and crate trained as I was led to believe -- he pulls really badly on the leash and he's a bit resistant to getting into the crate, whines and barked a little bit after going in last night. However, he has a sit already (we've clicked and rewarded him multiple times for demonstrating this) and has figured out the zen hand rea
  12. I have seen lots of good advice on here regarding dog training, and was hoping someone might be able to give me some help here. We are getting pretty desperate, and are going to have to get rid of one of our dogs if we cannot get this situation under control. A little background. We have 4 dogs, inside/outside, 3 males and one female. We have had all of them since they were pups. The oldest is 4, the next is 3, and the two youngest are just now 2 years old. The two youngest are littermates, a male and a female. Both are walker/pitbull mix. They have all gotten along fine until
  13. Sorry for the gross title but I figured it was a good enough warning. :D My mom and dad recently got three shih-tzu puppies. Yes, three. :willy_nilly: One is a 2 year old but the others are 12 weeks and 13 weeks respectively. The 12 week old eats her poop... or anyone else's who happens to be nearby. Puppies are not house trained yet although they're almost paper trained. My mom is going insane trying to catch the little one before she eats her poopy snacks. Does anyone have a good idea to help this problem? I think it's a deficiency of some sort but her vet (holistic) didn't have an
  14. My husband bought one of these machines for our dog's Christmas present this year. Does anyone have one of these that they successfully use? I saw some bad reviews, so I decided not to buy it, but buy a regular dremmel. But, he didn't know... It was a sweet present, but will it work?? Merry Christmas! Carrie:-)
  15. We are getting a dog in December, and I found out last night that husband's and my assumptions about where she should live are completely different. I'm trying to work out if this is cultural (he's American, I'm British) or personal. If any Americans have time to answer my poll, I'd be grateful. Thank you Laura
