Re: Feeding a lot of food... still skinny

I don't have any suggestions but your boy is beautiful :) Some people think Obi is too skinny but my vets think he looks great lean...better in the long run for his joints!! Allison, thanks! Is that Obi in your avatar? He's gorgeous! Nope, that's Buddy-Girl. With all her joint issues, I absolutely ...

Re: Limping

Rhys just strained his inner toe last week. he was returning his ball to me while playing fetch, but suddenly stopped running, sat down and lifted his paw. He did, however, have some swelling which showed up after a few hours. I took him to the vet and they took x-rays to rule out fracture and presc...

Re: Feeding a lot of food... still skinny

He's getting enough exercise that I'd bump him up to 4 cups... Also, post photos... some dogs are meant to be leaner than others, and there's so many fat dogs in the world, even vets don't always have the same idea of ideal as others. Duh, lol. Of course photos... sorry, ive been out of it today. W...

Feeding a lot of food... still skinny

OK, so I switched Rhys to Taste Of The Wild kibble about a month and a half ago. His coat looks wonderful, he isn't chewing himself as much and he's put on muscle. However he is getting 3-3.5 cups a day (which according to their chart on the bag is a pretty good amount for his weight, only 53 lbs) a...

Re: Biking with your bully

Hey check out the newest equipment for biking with your dog: http://www.biketowleash.com/index.php" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Pricey but given I could use it for all my different size dogs, I might spring for one. I love how flexible it looks in the videos. On the walkydog with ...

Terrified of streams?

OK, so I've been trying to venture out to more exciting walking areas now that Rhys is really really getting into his walks. However, he is terrified of water. I bought one of those collapsible bowls to bring along and if I dip it in the stream and put it next to the stream he will drink, but he won...

Re: Biking with your bully

I just got my walkydog, but they seem very well made (I hold things to a very high standard on well made, as I tend to judge things against my horse equipment which is very strong and long lasting). Would be interesed to hear from clickntreat, but everyone I talked to seems like they've had their wa...

Re: Biking with your bully

Hello everyone, I am new to the site and just adopted a Blue Nose named Abi on Sunday. I ride mountain bikes with friends a lot, and mostly on smaller trails. so I don't think the leash and belt setup would work for me. I am also a member on a mountain biking forum and someone suggested this device...

Re: Biking with your bully

WOW! Thought I'd add in my 2 cents for anyone considering a bike attachment. I just got my WalkyDog in the mail today (ordered from thedogoutdoors.com) and Rhys LOVES it! I love that he seems to enjoy pulling me up the hills, haha. It comes with a plastic ring to put between the clamp and the bike, ...

Thanks for the pictures, I think I'll order one, it looks like the best affordable solution. :)

Re: Biking with your bully

So cool! I tied the leash to the bike seat like a few of the posters on here said to try and Rhys did great! I just took him around the small block at my house for our trial and he seemed to like it. He even tried to take off after another dog someone was walking and I felt very secure on the bike s...

Re: Biking with your bully

Great idea! I am dusting my bike off for the season now that its getting warmer. I'll try the leash to the seat and see how that goes. lots of bunnies to chase this spring... hopefully I dont go crashing down to the ground... He does really great on the leash except for small "chaseable" a...

Re: Foster homes and cat problems

Thank you for this post it is a very useful guide for me! I am in the process of solving our own dog/cat tension. Rhys isn't dangerous to the cat (unless she might die from giving that irritated cat-stare too much) but he runs up to her and wants to play, he whines, barks and does that goofy hopping...
