Re: pet therapy

Excellent!
Well if you feel like posting more about it feel free--
I'm curious what qualities you think make a great therapy dog.
What types of training you recommend beyond the CGC test etc

Re: Thats the point right?

<t>I'm certainly no expert and will be curious to see what Mordy says but....<br/> I would rather feed smaller portions of a puppy food to keep him from being too fat than putting him on adult food at 6 months.<br/> In humans infants need far more fat than we do-- it's extremely important that they ...

Did i tell you?

I am going to a Jean Donaldson clinic in October?!!
I'm so excited. She's coming to Calgary (2 1/2 hr drive from me) which is pretty cool opportunity since she doesn't make it out to western Canada very darned often.

Re: Arg, obedience frustration (rant)

<t>bummer-- the place we train at encourages you to motivate your dogs with whatever works best for your dog. Balls , fod , toys etc. I can see if you were doing long throws through the middle of class or something. But if you can keep it as a reward without disturbing the class too much that (IMHO)...

pet therapy

<t>does anyone here do therapy dog work?<br/> I think Sammy is well suited to it. He is very sweet, very calm and very lovey. We had our last obedience class today and start agility soon. I 'm thinking of starting to work towards taking the Canine Good Citizen test and then hooking up with the pet t...

GROOOOOOSSS!!!

<t>I was feeding Ben breakfast this morning and noticed Sammy wasn't nearby (very odd for my kling-on dog) went into the other roon and there's a poopy diaper threaded all over the place and Sammy is looking up at my with a big shit-eating grin-- literally! <br/> He has shown interest in diapers bef...

Re: Fish Oil Supplement

<t>Mordy<br/> how does this one compare?<br/> Sammy's getting "Cold Water Fish Oil" made by Urban Carnivorewhich is a relatively local company ( Saskatchewan-- one province over)<br/> it contains:<br/> Fish body oil from Anchovy, Mackeral, sardine.

Re: Canine Personality Profile

<t>I wasn't sure how to answer some of them so i'm not sure how accurate Sammy's is <br/> ie does your dog guard territory?-- well he barks his low bark if someone comes to my door-- but he's happy to let them in the house or yard esp if they are friendly towards him<br/> or<br/> does your dog have ...

Re: fatten him up!!

Thanks for the links guys.
His weight is certainly too too low and if it's healthier to be on the lean side then we're probably exactly where he should be.

<t>Sammy is a border collie aussie cross who is 3 months out of rescue.He was very under weight when we got him and had a ton of nasty coat. He has gained *some* weight. I think he is now a healthy weight and his coat is now shiny - he just still has that LEEEAN look. He eats Innova regular adult dr...

<t>Sammy goes in the lake at the dog park every night and when he gets out he likes to rub against trees and shrubs. It's hilarious to watch-- as if he's drying himself off (only to jump back in again)<br/> last night when we got home he was still rather wet and next thing I know I see him walk down...

Seems like a great place.<br/> I have a wonderful bc aussie X came to me from a rescue group- I feel like I struck gold .
