Be aware too that if you are planning on switching airlines, some complanies will not transfer the dog for you. Not such a pain when flying with the dog, but a major pain if you ever have to have a dog transfered.

I have really enjoyed my planet dog stuff. I got the Orbee ball right before we got our seconds dog, almost two years ago, and it is still around-and may I say still a favorite. They do loose their minty smell after awhile though :sad: They are getting the orbee-tuff eggplant http://www.planetdog.co...

What really help me with my dog and food choice was getting an allergy test to comfirm what all my dog was allergic to. We just went through a similar experience with our 2 year old-who we couldn't put weight on no matter how we tried. Not only did we find he had a lot of food allergies (more than w...

Have you tried lupine collars, guarenteed even if chewed. They aren't the most heavy duty, but when they break (get broken) you can exchange them.

http://www.yummychummies.com/html/products.html Why not get salmon oil from an Alaskan company? I have never used the oil, but LOVE the dog treats. Let me rephrase that-the dogs LOVE them. They give some sources were you can order online. I have seen yummy chummies in Costco and Fred Meyers but I am...

A lof of people give the advice to knee a jumping dog or squeeze it's paws. I have found this works, BUT only for you, so your dog doesn't jump on you, but will still jump on guests and strangers. It is hard to get strangers to knee your dog-so in my book it doesn't work I would use the advice given...

Ok I am going to but my two cents into the conversation….. I don’t think that dillon is currently underweight; he is however on the low end of his ideal. He can gain weight, and did so when we upped his daily food amount as he needs more food then Chloe, who is older and less active (the lower food ...

I have a question for the people that crate their dogs at night. What is the purpose? For awhile we were crating the dogs because of the cat, especially when we first got Dillon. The cat didn't really appreciate him and his puppyhood. Crating the dogs at night allowed the cat to have some free time...

booties are also really cheap to make, if you have time to sew (sewing machines help, but I did a couple by hand). Cheap=don't get to mad when you look down and find that one of your $40 investments disapeared. There are probably better directions on the internet (check sled dog sites too), but i wa...

The dog that i grew up with used to eat grapes (before we found out the dangers of raisins/grapes). We even had a game out of it....bowling for grapes. She was healthy, until the age of 13 when her kidney's have out. Did the grapes play a major role? That's a tough debate, however my parents, my sis...
