Re: Ah the 'ball' dropped for the New Year.

Never thought I'd be congratulating someone on their dog's ... er... but anyways, it must be a great relief for you.

Vaccinations

<t>I was reading Colleen's post and it reminded me that I wanted to ask the forum's general opinions on yearly vaccinations... I know that there is a lot of debate over the usefulness of getting certain injections annually. Which vaccines are recommended on a yearly basis and which ones not? And wha...

Re: Lesser Snagglehound?

<t>With the exceptions of rare sudden bursts of running in the house, Nutmeg is pretty mellow for the most part - though she does like to get up at 5 am and jump on the parental bed with full-body wiggles and sloppy ear licks. Once she's had her walk she's quite happy to snooze the rest of the day.<...

Re: What do you love and hate about retractable leashes?

<t>I got really bad "flexi burn" with my old dog and have never been fond of them. You can also get sprayed with mud or water when it reels back in. Nowadays I've seen tape-type flexis, which I was tempted by, but they're expensive and still have those awkward handles. <br/> <br/> One of the funnies...

Re: Lesser Snagglehound?

We also think beagle/border collie but now we think Aussie is an even more intriguing idea. Hmmm. I grew up with a Brittany and she is about that size and has similar feathering and ears. Thanks everyone for your ideas!

Re: Clicker Expo

Calypso, am I correct in inferring that dogs can come to the conference? All sessions (both learning sessions and learning labs) other than those involving smaller animals? I really hope I can think of a valid excuse to miss a day of school!

Lesser Snagglehound?

Hello all, I'm attaching some pictures of Nutmeg here to get some sort of consensus on what her genetic makeup may be - we just call her a Lesser Snagglehound to impress people. She's about 30 lbs, and approx 22 inches at the shoulder, to give you an idea on size. We'd be interested in your thoughts...

Re: Different Proteins in Food

One brand of treats that Nutmeg adores is Wellness Wellbites or Pure Rewards. They are free of grains and come in different flavours for variety. They're also nice because they are soft and can be torn into tiny pieces for training.

Clicker Expo

<t>I'm thinking of going to the Clicker Expo in Cleveland in March. It's not too far to drive from here and it sounds like it will be really interesting. I'd like to improve my skills with clicker training Nutmeg, but I don't know yet if I can have the day off. Has anyone attended one before and wou...

Cleaning Products

<t>What canine-friendly cleaning products are there? We need to clean our wooden floors (not laminate) but don't want to use anything that could cause Nutmeg any harm. I know that diluted white vinegar works well and is harmless, but I really don't want the house to stink, so if there are any commer...

Re: Amusing email forward I received today

I just can't fathom how someone can read a site like the Dog Food Project and somehow surmise that it is trying to sell a particular food. Also, how did he come to the conclusion that it's biased in some way? Did he actua...

Re: Dandruff

<t>Thanks everyone. Today I exchanged the open bag of Fromm for a new bag of Solid Gold. I figure we may as well stick with that for the time being, seeing as Nutmeg was doing very well on it. I was pretty impressed that the pet food shop exchanged with no problems whatsoever! In fact they actually ...

Dandruff

<t>Nutmeg has quite a lot of dandruff and is quite itchy; the skin underneath her hair is not red or irritated and she doesn't have fleas. I have been slowly switching her from Solid Gold to Fromm whitefish & potato(with the intention of rotating kibbles every few months) and I've noticed that t...

Re: Rotating Foods?

<t>Thanks everyone, you've been very helpful. Today I bought a small bag of Fromm 4 Star upon the recommendation of buddy at the pet food store. I presume that it's okay to switch between different flavours/varieties of the same food line without all the transitioning, right? <br/> <br/> BTW, though...

Re: Rotating Foods?

I've already subscribed to WDJ, but haven't had a chance to fully scrutinize it yet. I've been trying to upload a picture of Nutmeg but as I'm relatively new to digital photography I don't know how to reduce the size of the image... grrr technology.

Rotating Foods?

<t>Hi all, I'm new to this forum! I have a year-old beagle (?) mix who I adopted two months ago from a rescue organization. I've heard that it's either a great idea or a terrible one to "rotate" the dog's foods every 2 or 3 months. She's on Solid Gold right now and we're almost at the end of the bag...
