Re: Stubborn Dog, a.k.a. Jump In the Pool Already!

It is all a matter of confidence level and repetition. Sheba would jump off the low dock into dark water (bay or river), but it took her almost a whole season to jump into the pool. Once she crossed that threshold, she never looked back. Just don't get frustrated or give up: do things at his pace. ...

Re: Stubborn Dog, a.k.a. Jump In the Pool Already!

Thanks for the video! It's really inspiring to see a dog that was where Cash is now, and that in the future Cash could be jumping like that. I think I'm possibly projecting though... i... uhm... don't like water. It makes me nervous- just standing on the dock makes me reach for something to hang on ...

Stubborn Dog, a.k.a. Jump In the Pool Already!

Okay. I guess maybe I'm getting frustrated, but I don't know what to do or where to turn. Rhonna - the dock owner - is at a loss, and I'm so new to this. Cash loves swimming. He has a toy drive that has increased x100 since we started Dock Diving. And he'll push off the exit ramp for a toy- so he's ...

Re: Anxiety and Jealousy...how to make my dog a dog again!?!

It seems to me that your older dog is very insecure, and is regressing in all its training because of the new pup. New routines, new procedures, NEW DOG! You've turned your dog's life upside down, so it will take a long time for your pet to become comfortable again. You need to set aside time for bo...

Re: Yay Cash!!!

The only one I have right now is my avatar. Rudy has some on his phone too, but it's just swimming photos. I will try to take photos next time- I was alone that day, and it was Cash's first time around a Competition so I wanted to watch his reactions and read his body language. Cash is only dog-tole...

Re: Yay Cash!!!

Oh hey!

Was just wandering around in here, where I don't belong... :)

We're going to a private practice this Sat, and will (hopefully) go to the Halloween Splash as well.
I hope this weekend really goes well for Cash, and with some confidence and drive- we could jump next weekend!

Re: PLEASE HELP! Important Question!

I know that between 2-3 dogs enter another defiant age- they're growing into adults and establishing who the boss is. I agree- more NILIF, and more general Training and proofing, as he may be a bit defiant if you ONLY ask him to do things at certain places, or certain times.

Re: My dog is... HA.

it could be barrier frustration- Cash sometimes does this when people come over. He can be a jumper, so we hold him back on initial greeting. He then barks for attention "COME AND PET ME PLEEEEEEEASE!" and it scares people even more, so I say "Give him 10 seconds, he'll calm down and ...

Re: Magnolia, Arkansas : Muzzle in public law.

you could address your city heads and ask for a revision on these laws, and back up with statistics. Be sure you have people behind you to do the same. A single voice won't be enough to change their minds. Enough voices to raise a request of revision of the law or ordinance should prompt them to do ...

Re: Gilroy, CA BSL good news

I live next door to this place and had no idea!

They're trying to do the same thing here in Hollister-
trying to slip it in when they think no one is watching.

Some of us locals won't have it. Not here!

Re: my dog gets aggressive when I try to clip his nails...

i was also told that if you walk your dog enough, you won't need to clip his nails.
Cash gets bike-ran three times a week and a regular hand-walk every day.
Sometimes I get his dewclaws with a bastard file- but for the most part, he doesn't seem to need trimmings.

Re: Pup had his first set of injections today...

i would say wait until ALL the shots are done, to be on the safe side.

You can always call your vet and ask yourself though- I'm paranoid.

Re: Biking with your bully

I bike with Cash- I too use a short (4 ft) leash attached to the seat post. Originally, I was going to get a springer, but this setup cost nothing and works perfectly for us. Cash runs on the right, and I found that if my leg is in front of the leash, i don't have to worry about Cash coming forward ...

Now I'm beginning to think she has pica. I've taught her the "leave it" command, which she follows. Unfortunately she doesn't chew on things out of boredom and anxiety. If that were the case I'd work her even harder than I already do. She chews on things so she can ingest them. She starte...
