Title: Dogs
Post by: jtksu on September 17, 2011, 05:06:36 PM
In the market for a new puppy.  He/she is just gonna hang out so I don't need some hunting dog or anything but I am willing to pay for a solid pedigree.  Thinking english or french bulldog, boxer, or maybe a labradoodle.  No allergies or anything but I would like a dog who doesn't shed a ton.  Medium sized backyard but I will walk him every day.  Any suggestos on breeds or breeders?

I'll take him on walks and to the park to play, stuff like that.  Other than that, I'm leaning towards a couch potato type than isn't crazy hyper indoors.

thoughts on taking a five year old pure bread who pretty much fits you description? also would have to have some kind of signed contract that you wouldn't randomly freak out some weak and stab and kill him because i have some concern that you might do something like that.

If you don't have a solid idea of what you want, it should take at least a few weeks to decide.  You're going to be spending a ton of time and money on it so you should take a good look at a lot of breeds and their downsides since they all have them.

I love English bulldogs but you should do a lot of research on their respiratory issues, exercise limitations, general smelliness, etc.  Boxers and Labradoodles are both good choices, but make sure you have enough time to deal with their energy.  With a lot of dogs, just walking them won't actually tire them out like you'd think.  My plan with my German Shepherd was to walk or run her at least once a day.  Turns out that does almost nothing to release her energy so I now have to play frisbee with her 5-6 times a day to keep her satisfied.  I work at home and spend 24 hours a day with her so it works well for me (gets me out of my chair) but just something to consider.

Based on what you said you may want to look into soft coated wheaten terriers.

Are you opposed to smaller dogs?  That would open up the "couch potato" list.  Also, think about whether you really need a puppy since almost any breed you get will be pretty hyper the first few years.  You might be surprised what they have at the manhattan pound.  Every time I go in there I find a few dogs that I would take home with me if I had the room.

I would recommend a basenji, aka the African Bush Dog or the Congo Dog. They don't bark and are pretty sweet.

They don't bark. With any other breed, you run a severe risk of getting some annoying dog that never shuts up when you leave it alone.

Thought about going the rescue route but the whole puppy phase is pretty sweet and I'd hate to miss it.  I've had 2 pugs for over 10 yrs, so I've been dealing with most of the health issues you mentioned.  I'd get another pug but I'm pretty tired of how much they shed, it's incredible.  They're both pretty old though so I thought I'd go ahead and get a puppy before too long so it can grow up with other dogs, for the socialization aspect.  Also discovered french bulldogs recently, my neighbor's frenchie is pretty freaking badass.

Have 2 boxers. They are the crap. Athletic dingbats with loads of personality. They tend to have heart and tumor problems so they don't live as long as some other breeds.

Would love to get a Rhosdesian Ridgeback, so it could jog with me but those SOBs need to run like 5 miles every day or they get anxious and tear crap up.  I run most days but not every day and not 5 miles every day.  I'll be damned if I'm getting up to run 5 miles on a Sunday.

Bulldog sounds perfect for you.  But as stated above, please research heavily as they are expensive to keep healthy, but worth every penny.  They're just loyal class clowns who want nothing more than to make you smile.  Pups are pretty much like kids though, lots of time and money.  And remember, they don't like heat, or cold, or exercise.... kind of like a temperature sensitive couch potato.
Title: Re: Dogs
Post by: jtksu on September 18, 2011, 02:05:32 AM
Yeah, my pugs are the same way.  I can't take them out during the heat of the day for more than a few minutes and they flat out refuse to be out in the cold for more than absolutely necessary.  I do take them for a walk every day but it's just around the block, that's all they can handle.  Those little guys constantly have ear infections or something else, plus they have to be deshedded and groomed every month.  Shits expensive but it's worth it.  Plus, I don't have any kids yet so I may as well spend my money on dogs.

have a pitbull. love the crap out of it. but, I wasn't one of those guys that really wanted a pitbull, just happened that way.

They are really great dogs, pretty smart, fairly energetic but also have no problem just chillin on the couch for hours.  My only complaint is last year he tore his cruciate ligament and that cost about 3 grand to get fixed.

Really easy to train, never barks, cute as hell especially during the puppy stage.

would highly recommend them

never had a problem in 4 years. the key is to be responsible, I never let him be around new people without me there, especially kids.  But really, he loves kids just licks the crap out of their faces.

Yeah, I wouldn't get a dog that people are going to be afraid of. Mutts are pretty hit and miss. They are great when you get a good one, though. Collies are pretty smart. Retrievers are great if you don't mind the shedding. I like Basenji's, but they are kind of like cats, so I can see why some people don't like them. Boxers are pretty good dogs when you are around, but I don't know anybody that has a boxer that's not a real shithead when it gets left alone. Never get a Chihuahua or Poodle. I also hate Dalmatians with a passion.

Just my 2 cents.

I think that most pit bulls are pretty nice dogs. The problem is that a larger than average percentage of them are pretty aggressive, and they can rip your face off.

It's all about ownership. A pitbull needs an owner that it can look to for guidance and to be strong, if you can't do this then you probably shouldn't be getting any kind of dog. just imho

Yeah, you gotta be the alpha dog or they will act out in all sorts of ways.  Little dogs usually have a higher incidence of this because people think it's cute when they do crap that would earn a big dog an ass beating.  And most people's problems with dogs stem from them not exercising their dogs enough.  My aunt's boxer is a rough ridin' spaz because she never walks it and he stays in a crate all day during work/school hours.

yeah, this is where my job comes in handy, I'm home for 48 straight hours and at work for just 24. So when I'm home he's never in his kennel, unless I go out for something. and when I'm at work, he's only in his kennel until the wife gets home from work, then she usually takes him for a run or something.

Also, he's pretty good about entertaining himself in the backyard. He will just run in circles for 20-30 minutes, then come inside and sleep for 4-5 hours. then repeat.

Even though I'm technically breaking the law by having him in the city, I've never had any problems. I even walked him right by some animal control people a few months ago, and they just told me he was a good looking dog.

true, but it has historically been considered a defect if a pit is human aggressive, meaning they don't allow that dog to breed. obviously lately irresponsible breeders have not upheld this. but, if you get a dog from a reputable breeder with a proven bloodline it really shouldn't be a problem

Labs are hands down my fav.  Another good choice for a medium/large dog would be a greyhound.  They don't shed and are very docile and loyal.  We had them when I was growing up and you couldn't ask for a better pet.  They can handle the heat and would be perfect to take on your runs.  Although they are built for speed, they are not necessarily a high energy dog (in other words, they are not spaz's).  If you're looking at doing the rescue thing, you could take one off of a track somewhere.
Title: Re: Dogs
Post by: jtksu on September 19, 2011, 02:32:10 PM
Greyhounds are cool but you can never, ever let them off their leash.   People have had greyhounds for yrs, let them off the leash, (just from the car to the house) and found the dog 25 miles away, dead in some forest.  Great for apartment dwellers though because they prefer small, enclosed places or laps, it makes them feel safe.

That's just what I read on several rescue/rehab sites.  I don't think they meant that greyhounds will always take off if you take them off leash, more that there is always a chance one will take off and you're going to catch that dog.  Just check a few of the sites, they all stress this point pretty strongly.

It's possible. Our dog is half ridgeback, half mutt. He has some basset hound, pit, and something else in him. His ridge is only present when he gets excited or on the hunt.

Great dogs, maybe more high energy than you want but probably not much different than a lab.  There are viszla rescue groups in about every state.

Looking for a dog. Thinking about adopting but want a young one, nothing more than 6 months or so. Looking for something similar to a lab in size, been looking at coon hounds or Vizlas or something around there. Dont need a hunting dog but do have some land that i could take it to so It could chase rabbits etc.

I would keep it in the backyard while at work. Would also like to take it on runs, nothign to crazy though.

Ideas?

I have a rhodesian ridgeback. Get one of those.

So, we rescued a dog and were told he was a yellow lab / golden retriever mix (pretty much looks like a smallish lab). After looking up rhodesian ridgebacks, however, I think he might have some of that in him. Looks almost identical in the face. Hmmm.

It's possible. Our dog is half ridgeback, half mutt. He has some basset hound, pit, and something else in him. His ridge is only present when he gets excited or on the hunt.

Yeah, same with ours, so I bet he is part RR. He looks like Red XIII when he gets amped up.

I would get a short haired dog and hook him up with a bitchin house to stay warm in the winter. Putting a long or even medium length haired dog outside during the summer is cruel imo. I'm assuming you don't live in a cold state.

Live in KC. Been looking at Rhodesian Ridgebacks but apparently they are about $1,000 and I dont feel like spending alot of money on an animal. Dont need a purebreed or anything as I have no desire to show or breed them. Would love a Ridgeback lab mix.

One of my pugs gets ear infections on the regular.  The vet usually gives her some steroid pills and two tubes of ointment.  One tube is for the current infection and I put a little of the other tube in her ears every week or so in hopes of warding off another infection.  I have to take her to the vet like every three months or so though.

I want a boxer really, really badly.

Friend of mine and former roommate has a boxer who is absolutely insane.  He adopted her from a shelter.  She was in the shelter because her previous owners couldn't deal with her energy/hyperness, and after a couple weeks we could see why she might be a bit much to handle.  Never a dull moment around that dog.  She isn't a bad or mean dog and she's very fun to play with, but I wouldn't recommend a boxer unless you have a lot of patience (or if you're better at training and teaching dogs than our dumb asses).

She has jumped through and shattered several windows, that's a lot of fun to explain to the landlord.  Her bark is loud enough to wake the dead.  When nobody is home, she has a habit of tearing up any produce left on the counter (onions, potatoes and tomatoes are her favorite).  She likes to play rough and has drawn blood on both of us multiple times while playing.  One time after a party, we passed out drunk and woke up to discover that she carried Gatorade bottle spitters onto the couch and somehow pried the fuckers open, spilling tobacco spit everywhere.  She gets jealous if you're with a girl on the couch and will try to wedge herself between the two of you.  She also chews up shoes and socks if you leave them around her.

i've had a beagle since he was ~3 months old. he is now 12. he likes to make noise when left alone, but barking and howling has never been an issue when he has company. they're great dogs, but probably not great for apartment living. you could put a shock collar on him or her that activates when they would bark, but i don't necessarily like/agree with that approach.

I want a beagle, but have been warned about their barking.

i've had a beagle since he was ~3 months old. he is now 12. he likes to make noise when left alone, but barking and howling has never been an issue when he has company. they're great dogs, but probably not great for apartment living. you could put a shock collar on him or her that activates when they would bark, but i don't necessarily like/agree with that approach.

tried this on my dog when she was young, and she would make a noise when it shocked her, so it would shock her again, causing her to make another noise.  so it didn't really work as intended.  i shocked myself with it to see how bad it is, and it wasn't painful.

Interesting. I always thought it would be hilarious to put a shock collar on fanning and then go out binging for the night.

He's pretty hilarious though. Got zero desirable German shepherd traits though so he's kinda dumb and uncoordinated but adorable and loving.

I am getting an Australian shepherd puppy in a couple months. with any luck I should be able to get a male with blue eyes ( hopefully a blue merle, maybe a tri colored)... i don't know what to name it though.... do I try to pick out a name first, or wait until i get it and name it on the fly? this will be my 2nd largest life decision so far and I don't want to eff it up
An Australian Shepard mauled me when I was like two years old. eff those dogs.

your dog hate makes a little more sense now.

actually I've owned a dog, too, and I hate how much work they are and how much they smell and crap and get hair all over the place

yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

we're calling her colibri.  we could change it, but it seems like that's working ok, so we probably won't.

I wish your dog could talk and tell you what a dumb name that is

border collies are very biddable.  she'll like whatever i tell her to like.

1.  normal, pups gonna pup, 2.  give her something delicious right before you leave the room.  pop back in before she starts whining with something delicious again.  don't give her the 2nd food if she whines before you get back.  don't have to do this a lot, just every once in a while.  and always ignore the whining.

Yeah, she seems to be pretty smart. Just had our first vet appt, small ear infection and some minor issues with digestion but other than that a clean bill of health.

I've never had a puppy this young before (last one was 13 weeks when I got him) so the whining and excessive biting is new for me. It's good to  hear that it's normal though. We're starting to crate train this week, so we'll see how that goes.
Title: Re: Dogs
Post by: KCFDcat on March 04, 2015, 05:22:15 PM
week 2 update:

Training has been going v well! she's almost totally crate trained now and spends all over her sleeping time in there, and usually goes in there to chew on toys etc...

took a small step back in potty training (I don't think mrs kcfd is as vigilant at taking her out when I'm at work) but the dog seems to be back on the wagon now.

down to waking up only once a night, which is a huge upgrade from the 5-6 times we were woken up the first week. exhausting.

she also gained almost 4 pounds last week! holy crap!

ok.  I'll go ahead and acknowledge the elephant in the room.  truthfully- the dog looks as if it may be insane.  running around- seemingly with no purpose or reason.  back and forth, around and around, and then it attacks a person.  I guess that for hardcore dogheads this type of activity is considered endearing but man, just seems like a four legged PCP addict to me.

Getting a new dog tomorrow evening (adoption). 

We lost a dog last spring and then got a new one right away (adoption). The terrier mix we got had lots of issues with people and would get mean every time someone came over. Then we had issues while away last summer with someone watching her and not being able to control her and she ruined our basement floor. I have a feeling she had been beaten by a male and she had major issues because of it, we tried for about 4 months and it just didn't work out. It was just a bad deal for us and the dog unfortunately. We took a break and continued to look and found one we think will be a better fit.

Now we are getting a rat terrier and based on the foster family he was with he doesn't seem to have any of the issues of our previous dog. He's been around kids, people, other dogs, and cats; energetic guy about a year and a half old. Pretty excited.

Good luck Fan!!!  We are meeting a potential adoption tomorrow too.  We had to take our old dog in a few weeks ago and it's just too quiet without the pooch around.  Hoping this puppy works out. Will post adorbs pics if it works out.

well, I have you pegged as a 32 year old with his crap together who just crushes it all day ever-y-day.
The camping chair and folding table and chairs have you pegged as a 25 year old who travels all week for work in a shitty job.  I do love the tile.

i'm a lot older than that.  i do work a shitty job and travel a ton for it.

the table isn't a folding table, just a small kitchen table.  i've been meaning to buy some chairs (and a dining table) for a few years, but i'm lazy, picky and cheap, so i haven't found anything i thought i should buy yet.  one of these days.  i like the tile a lot too.  hate the grout though.  can't believe how fast it got discolored.

I have been living in denver for the past 3 years and cant help but think of all the cool crap we could have done together in that time instead of just starting now. oh well, he is a blast to hang out with and it really is an awesome feeling to teach a dog a trick or command and see them catch on.

Thanks!! I have  DNA kit on him and going to see what exactly he is. The folks we are adopting from thought the mother was a boxer mix but they are also thinking Mastiff, Great Dane, maybe Shar Pei. So... hopefully the DNA kit will give us some insight. He's a hoss.  Going to be tall. Super laid back and sweet though so far.

don't reinforce the behavior. instead, reinforce the times he does not bark. gonna probably take a while, but start building on those quiet times. clickers can also be good tools to help. sounds like he is a pretty good dude, just tryin to do what's right in this crazy mixed up world.

The vicitim was a squirrel who had been terrorizing my garden for the last month so I wasn't too sad.

Question tho, Will lady develop a taste for blood now that she has killed? Will she need to kill once a month now just to be normal? Once a week?

she's always had a taste for blood, she's a dog.  she's only now figured out what she can do about it.


she's malleable.  if you want her to kill rodents, you can encourage it, if you don't, you can deter it.  it doesn't take much.

No, more fat in the food. As my dog was getting older and dropping weight my vet had me put her on puppy food. It would help put on weight or her case slow down her weight drop.

I know what the puppy food is for, just not the "large breed" part. don't really care either. she seems to enjoy it. Once a week (after we do scent training sesh's) if she's good she gets chicken and rice for dinner. man she really goes crazy for that stuff.

large breed is less nutrient dense so that the pups grow slower because growing too fast can cause joint problems in larger dogs.  some brands also have stuff that is supposed to help with joint health, but afaik no one really knows if they work or not.

no offense, but your pup actually looks very slightly on the tubby side, so less nutrient dense food is probably a good idea even if liblib thinks she's small.

unfortunately, that's not accurate.

is this a good place to complain about the incredibly shrinking kibble?  when i was a young man any number of dog foods would give you a nice big robust kibble.  now the world is awash in these rough ridin' mini-kibble grains of sand.  who the eff decided that all dogs wanted to eat dwarf kibbles and why aren't there contrarian companies that refuse to slavishly follow the mindless horde?

it matters to me because i use cheap dog food to feed my mice and all these newfangled kibbles are too small and slip through the bars of the hoppers and the only one i can find that still uses a nice big kibble is pedigree large breed which is too expensive for mice and also they now dye about 1/3 of the kibbles red or green and i don't like that either.


i don't think it does matter to the dogs, which is why it's so annoying that there isn't some variety in kibble size.

Mine is a sporting dog.  A little mixed up tho.  She likes indoors better than outdoors.  Likes the city more than the country.  But at least she hunts; only it's for snacks instead of birds.

Did I mention she likes to dance after she comes back in after going potty.  It's called "Give me a treat daddy" dance.

I let my dog out last night before going to bed and he took off like a shot off the deck into the yard... Not normal.  So I poked my head out and he had SOMETHING.. on the ground.  I immediately said a prayer for "NO SKUNKS GAWD NO SKUNKS!" and when I get out on the deck I see he has a paw on top of a possum that has gone into survival mode and playing dead.  Norman has a look on his face like... "OMFG I killed it!!" and comes back up on the deck when I call him.  I shut the gate to the deck and we both watch the possum come to in about 20 seconds and mad dash it out of the yard, through the fence, and up into the woods.  Unfortunately I didn't have my phone on me to get any footage of this Wild Kingdom moment.  I was happy to see the animal was unharmed and my dog really just treated it as a toy more than a meal. 

anyway... Cool story.

We went through this one year ago with the kids basset hound that they absolutely adore.  She fell down stairs and jacked her back up bad.  The vet gave her a not great chance at recovery and said that if she does recover, she won't have control of bowels and what not.  The vet also told us that if she didn't have a significant recovery in 2-3 days, then she won't at all.  We prepared to have her put down, then decided what would it hurt to give her an extra week or so. The dog made a 99% recovery and we avoided the issue, but part of the prep for putting her down was the discussion with the kids.  they were 8 and 10 at the time and took it so much better than I thought they would.

Unfortunately came here to post something similar and maybe get some good discussion on it. Know what you are going through. #onecat.

My Rhodesian is round about 6 1/2 years old. A couple months ago we noticed the muscles on the right side of his head collapsed. He wasn't and still isn't in any pain. We had been going through a pretty arduous move at the time, and coordinating with where to put the dog when we were working on the move obviously put a lot of stress on him. We figured it might be stress related but decided to get him checked anyway. We went through several steps and tests, all of which to test out more common, less serious, treatable possibilities, all of which came back negative. The last test we have available is to do an MRI to check for tumors that could be a lot of places, none of which would be good. The doc says that it is more than likely attached to his brain, or to a nerve sheath. She also says that there isn't really any outside chance that it is something else.

Like I said, he isn't in any pain. He also doesn't seem to be effected in any other way --maybe a little bit more drool out of that side of his mouth. Generally an extremely happy dog who is the exact same minus looking a little weird.

The question I'm struggling with is whether or not we should confirm what seems to be the only possible explanation, which would mean spending a decent chunk of change (in the thousands of dollars) on an MRI. If it does confirm it, then we know exactly what is happening and we would be essentially in the same spot. Treatment for that sort of thing is radiation and basically could extend the life of the dog by a couple years, but during the therapy he would be absolutely miserable. The therapy is extremely hard on dogs and they feel like crap. It can go on for a year or two. In addition to be extremely expensive, I don't like the idea of making my dog feel like crap and devalue the good years of his life just to extend the generally less active years he may have left.

Is it wrong to just continue without more tests, and without treatment? I have come to terms with the fact that he could be gone in as little as a few months (could also be a few years) so long as he is enjoying his life and doing dog things, but I am not sure if this is off base. TIA.

Post by: pissclams on March 09, 2016, 04:46:44 PM
i would ask myself, what are am going to do with the results of the tests?  the hard answer is probably nothing because of the difficulty of dealing with a tumor on the brainstem.  if your dog isn't in any visible pain, and that's confirmed by the doctor, i would just let the guy live his saggy faced life. 
 
this has probably been addressed by the vet but it sounds like maybe he/she has the canine version of bell's palsy, it's called idiopathic facial nerve paralysis.

My Ike dog had an abscess on his rear leg so I took him to the vet here in Lenexa to have it lanced.  My other dog had had an abscess once and it was lanced by a more rural vet and I was out the door at about $300.  So I didn't even ask for pricing in Lenexa.  rough ridin' 920 dollars, and when I picked him up he was still squirting blood.  They said "it'll stop bleeding soon."  And I was all "I paid you to fix my dog and you haven't done that yet call me when he is fixed."  Fuckers.  So ya 500 bucks to a JoCo vet is like a teeth cleaning and maybe some antibiotics.

there is a puppy in an apartment down the hall that has been absolutely losing its crap the past few days. today it has been barking for four solid hours now. it sounds like it's right next to the door so i'm doubting the owners put it in a cage/kennel when they leave for the day. i work from home and can usually put on music or something to cover it up, but i would say my level of being annoyed is at a 3.5/7.

is there anything i can do in this situation? should i leave a note for the owners as if they will/can do anything about it? or do i just have to deal with it?

When I watched my parents dog at the apartments downtown (and wasn't supposed to have a dog in the river market lofts), I had about 4 ppl rat me out to the landlord. So that's always an option. It worked in this case.

I think a note would go a long ways tho.

Would you get another that big?  Been putting off getting another dog saying we don't have room.  Now that we moved and have room, wife is full throttle on looking for dogs, mainly looking at Bullmastiffs.

Yeah, the short lifespan was the primary concern and we are aware of the health problems.  Also didn't know if bullies were territorial with the male/male dog thing since we already have a smaller male dog but I think we are going female anyway.

You guys hit the head on the nail, the three we were looking at were Newfoundlands, Bernese Mtn dogs, and Bullmastiff.  We kinda went towards the bully because much less shedding and wife likes the tough guy look for a little sense of security when walking around our new place (moving into the city/little more crime/etc)

If you are living in Kansas, summer would be brutal on a newfoundland or bernese mtn dog. You could also look at Swiss Mountain Dogs (less hair) or Danes. Both are supposed to be pretty chill and will probably have less slobber than the Bully.

haven't been home much in the past few weeks, but i'm back this week and just left a note. i went out to make sure i had the right apartment, it's directly across the hall. i think the dog actually is in a cage/kennel because i can hear it scraping around in there. poor thing is miserable, just constantly barking and whimpering. i offered to take it on walks or dog sit occasionally.  :drool:

Two years ago my buddy lost his old pointer bitch (old age).  Bought a pup to replace her.

About a year ago his other pointer bitch, 6 years old, died suddenly (grass awn migrated to spinal column, infection, paralysis).  Bought a pup to replace her.

Pup #1 died suddenly in January (impaled on mesquite tree), and he's looking into getting another puppy to replace. 

So he must think it's worth it.  Honestly I don't know how he's not lost it going through all this heartache.  He's a better man than me no doubt.

Two years ago my buddy lost his old pointer bitch (old age).  Bought a pup to replace her.

About a year ago his other pointer bitch, 6 years old, died suddenly (grass awn migrated to spinal column, infection, paralysis).  Bought a pup to replace her.

Pup #1 died suddenly in January (impaled on mesquite tree), and he's looking into getting another puppy to replace. 

So he must think it's worth it.  Honestly I don't know how he's not lost it going through all this heartache.  He's a better man than me no doubt.
I don't think this means he thinks it's worth it. More like the dogs are a tool that when it breaks you replace it. He has no emotional attachment.

Well what a rough ridin' week.  I've been getting up early to drive 50 miles to see my dog at the vet most mornings, and then back 50 miles into work.  On the days I can't go my buddy swings in and gives him some ear scratches for me.  He's been on aggressive anti-biotics and steroids since Monday.  There was some good initial improvement in mood and mobility, like lifting head and turning his body and stuff, but finally this morning he stood up on his own and took two steps.  I had told myself if Tuesday 7/5 he wasn't standing I knew it was his time, and had already called a vet to come to the house to do it (doesn't seem right to do him like that in a vet's office).  Looks like the old dog still has some fight in him.  As long as he can eat, drink, and go to the bathroom on his own, I'm happy.

Guys, I picked him up last Tuesday 7/5.  He's off two of his meds now, only has the prednisone (steroid) remaining.  I pretty much have to carry him everywhere because he can't handle himself on the slick hardwood floors.  Looks like Michael J Fox on ice skates.  Saturday he went to the bathroom for the first time by himself, so he is definitely improving.  Last night he was a dumbass and tried to walk down the deck stairs by himself, fell about half the way before I could catch him.  But anyway, it looks like he's going to make it!

On further pondering your question about black nails referring to not being able to see the pink (quick), i'd just use the pictures above as a guide for where to cut and take a little less off.  You also might be able to use a pen light to see if you can see the quick through the claw.

Wasn't really anything we could do at that point. I miss him a lot, guys.

Yeah, definitely a part of the reason I posted about how it happened was for awareness on these sorts of things. He was notorious for eating pretty much anything he could get a hold of. Indiscriminate eaters can be super tough to control and monitor. Hope your pooches never have anything like that happen.

Had the annual check up of the hounds on Wednesday.  The vet told me that hunting the dog that had the recent issues would be at an increased risk of another episode, and effectively advised that he be retired.  Which is fine, it's sad, but it's fine.  He is getting old anyway.  I just hope he doesn't get all damn depressed when we go hunting and leave him at home.

I don't think I've ever followed this thread.

I think I might want a dog.  Seems like everyone in my building has one, and they're everywhere I run and walk around.  Looks fun.  But I'd only want a pretty chill dog.

How do I do this?  Googling makes me think I should be adopting an adult dog that's already somewhat trained.

This place has a manageable amount of dogs.  Finch looks good.

http://www.seattle.gov/animal-shelter/adopt

Other sites I'm finding seem overwhelming with the amount of dogs.

http://dog.rescueme.org/Washington

http://www.adoptapet.com/dog-adoption/search/35/miles/98101?age=adult&sex=m&pet_size_range_id=1

This little dude seems good too.  http://www.adoptapet.com/pet/16461028-seattle-washington-miniature-pinscher-mix

lib, make some recommendations.  My place is small, but the building's very pet-friendly with the pet area right outside my door a floor below.  I've seen people use their balconies as a yard of sorts by making sure there's netting on the railings and with astroturf shitters, but I don't think I'd mess w/that much when it's so easy to take the dog to legit places.  I'd want the dog pretty calm inside, but up for running or walking quite a ways.  I also might have to figure out how to get it designated as a service animal so I could take it on the water taxi over to the beach.

if you know what kind of dog you want, you can check for breed specific rescues.  they'll have dogs of that breed and often crosses and similar breeds.  my impression is that those orgs usually keep the dogs longer in foster houses and give them a little more attention prior to adopting them out.

if you know what kind of dog you want, you can check for breed specific rescues.  they'll have dogs of that breed and often crosses and similar breeds.  my impression is that those orgs usually keep the dogs longer in foster houses and give them a little more attention prior to adopting them out.

I don't know anything about breeds or what I'd want.  But yeah, a lot of these places I'm looking at indicate a fair amount of the dogs are in foster homes already.

Every Petsmart I've been to gets their dogs from a local shelter so they should be fine. If you have an ASPCA or an ARL there they are great too but 99% of shelters are just fine.

You want a dog from a farm out in western KS.  JHe works hard, gets up early and is the last one to leave the dog park.  Sure, he might be the slowest and least intimidating dog around but he will never get in trouble (except for the occasional delay of walk screw up) and you can be proud of him.  In 4 years, he might even be good enough to be captain

many Japanese house finish materials are very fragile and don't stand up well to pets. think soft wall paper, rice paper interior doors/room dividers, tatami floors.

I think both of those dogs are fugly. Crate training a dog is incredibly easy if you don't get caught up in the lunacy of thinking it's bad for the dog. I went to Wichita to pick up my wife's dog, I put him in a crate in the car for his trip up here, it was the first time he was in a crate, he was crate trained by the end of the trip. He was crate trained for a month and I decided to buy him a 30 foot outdoor dog run and he hated it, still hates it four years later.

The two dogs I've tried to crate train have done a combination of: escape, crap/piss and stomp around in it, injure themselves trying to escape, whine and howl to piss off the neighbors.  Maybe I'm just horrible at crate training.

All the non-labs my family has had were very easily crate trained and had no problems with them tho.

a true "crate-trained" dog doesn't need to be told to go to the crate. Example, my dog knows when I have keys in my hand I'm leaving the house, she goes in her crate. If we're on the couch watching TV the dog lies down in her crate, etc etc

A big plus for Buddy is that the place in charge mandates that the dogs actually go to your spot for 2 weeks as a test run on both sides, so that would be a big plus for everyone vs. just taking a flier on one based on a paragraph of blog.  It kind of freaked me out at the shelter that people were walking in and out with a new dog in like 20 minutes and that was that.

One of my dogs can sense when I'm getting ready to leave for work and just goes in without me asking the other is about 6 months old and I just give her breakfast in her crate and she's happy.


Also y-l_a bro just got a dog, very cute and great with people. Huge bad person to other dogs though, and not just my two dogs who really dgaf about him but it seems like all dogs. Tried at others peoples houses to get him acclimated, took him to bluestem with other dogs and at his own house. He just seems to really be a big jerk when it comes to other dogs.

different breeds are different and some breeds are pretty tough to crate train etc because they aren't complete idiots and would rather not spend their entire days trapped in a cage that is only slightly bigger than they are. so while it might be kind of nice to have a dog that doesn't mind it, don't pat yourselves on the back too hard because guess what? that dog iq of yours is somewhere around 80.
My dogs IQ is in the 120s. We had her tested. V smart dog. The smartest dog. Just a really impressive canine is what I'm saying.

Tried at others peoples houses to get him acclimated, took him to bluestem with other dogs and at his own house. He just seems to really be a big jerk when it comes to other dogs. Anyone have any useful ideas?

both those dogs are too small.

i've never understood what people are talking about when they say crate training. is it just that you tell a dog to go in a crate and he goes in?  because there's no training involved in that, that's just telling a dog to do something and the dog doesn't give a crap and mostly does whatever you tell it to naturally so it does what you tell it to w. regard to going in a crate.  is there supposed to be something more to it?

a true "crate-trained" dog doesn't need to be told to go to the crate. Example, my dog knows when I have keys in my hand I'm leaving the house, she goes in her crate. If we're on the couch watching TV the dog lies down in her crate, etc etc

Our dog goes when I start brushing my teeth in the morning and when I come home after he does something stupid like taking food from one of the kids when he's alone with them and my wife.

both those dogs are too small.

If I got a dog of the size you deem desirable, my entire apartment would effectively be the crate.  When I went to the shelter, even the "medium" dogs looked to me like they'd be totally claustrophobic in my setup.

my older dog is 46 lbs.  too big for you, no arguments.  my younger dog is 29 lbs, and it's pretty much the perfect dog size.  big enough to do medium to large dog things like play w. tennis balls, run super fast and jump super high, harass small animals and not have that weird small dog attitude of wanting to fight bigger dogs but small enough to hardly take up any room, can be picked up and carried around w. one arm and generally be very convenient.

in summary, look for a 25-30 lb dog.

don't let them mind-trick you into thinking they're doing you a favor in giving you an abandoned dog for $400.  whatever you offer buddy is better than what he has now.  also dogs don't need yards, and honestly any dog organization that doesn't know that is pretty suspect.

Thank you for your application for Buddy. I am so sorry about the delay in replying to you. Things get very busy around here.
Buddy will be placed on trial adoption soon with someone who applied for him before you. We hope it will work out for him.

We do have many other great dogs available so please keep an eye on our website and let us know if there are others that appeal to you. There is no need for a new application each time; you can just email me directly.

What about Asher?  Seems like a lot of similar traits that I cared about, but has some baggage?

Quote
Asher has been through a lot and really wants a person to himself. He is learning to have better manners with other dogs but does have jealousy issues. Asher is nervous around kids so we would prefer a kid-free home for him.

He warms very slowly to men and after a few days, with love and giving him space and treats, he is in. He is not the type of dog you can instantly pet and just needs a little time and then loves it. He is then a very snuggly boy. Loves his walks, car rides, such a doll.

Something happened in his past so his foster is working on him being lightly touched on his backside and neck to get him comfortable.  Making tons of progress.

in my experience it's more like 5% a year from middle age to old age and then old age hits in like the span of a year and then they're at 10-20% of puppy pep till they die.

I like cRusty the best personally, I want him.

Low energy?

Also, it's just past 3am and I just finally escorted a bunch of canadians out of my place and lol at how a dog's gonna figure into all this.

Just fine if you don't have a skittish shitbird of a dog. Our dog is nearly a hundred pounds and he does fine when we have parties. When he gets too excited we just put him in his crate and he sleeps.

Do they list weights? Dora looks kinda big.

"Medium."  I agree, she looks like she could be bigger than I want.

Tosh seems cool.

Back to petfinder.  Weigh in.

Tosh is still there.  I don't see anything off-putting in his description other than it might be a 2-hour drive each way to get him.

https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/36184955

Theodore: Not too much info there but from PR, which would be elite.

https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/35277358

Reggie: I like a lot of the description, but it's ambiguous whether a yard's required.  They say he can't be crated and doesn't need to be and won't do anything bad in here.

https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/36174915

Chunk: Not a whole lot of info, but lol.

https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/36013108

Dora: Lot to like about this dog, specifically says she'd be good in an apartment and can entertain herself looking outside or at a reflection while I'm working.  I wasn't planning on leaving everything open in my place, but if she doesn't eff anything up, whatever.

https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/34258496

Here's a bunch from that same place with virtually no info about them.  I figure if I applied for Dora, the place would let me know if any of these are a good or better fit.

I started that way. Few dogs, even less background info and very chaotic. I like reading the info and talking to a person that knows if it'd work out. Isn't petfinder just an aggregator of every humane society place anyway?

When I get home and a few hours sleep, I'll just apply for all of them and see who comes back first with a declaration it'd be good, especially if they do a trial.

So starting to think about a new pup.

Arguing with the Mrs. about breed. I'm leaning towards chocolate lab, she is leaning heavily towards a Wire Haired Pointing Griffon. I really want a dog that can handle trail running, hiking, and running with me while I mountain bike.

Anyone have any opinions on these two breeds or experience?

i have no clue but maybe if the particular color has been inbred more than others, it would lead to more health issues

Yes, Inbreeding. Chocolates are hard to obtain so they inbreed too much which leads to health issues.

Tosh's foster lady isn't responding to me or the dog placement people.  Dognapping?


The place with Dora, Clyde et al responded with more questions for me and commented that she thought either of those or Kara would work.  This is the place with minimal descriptions on petfinder for most of the dogs except Dora.  I need someone with facebook to look on the link that's in these links and see if there's better info there.

Clyde - https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/36202787

Kara - https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/34258501 - There's some info on petfinder but nothing that makes me know why the lady thought she'd be a good fit.

Otto - https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/35512980

Finally got a hold of Tosh's foster, but now she's got Tosh meeting potential adopters this weekend so I have to wait until after to see if he's still an option.

The operator of Dora et al got back to me after I gave more specifics on what I'm looking for and has now enthusiastically raised the option of Dina.  https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/36269844  There are no details on the site but the lady says "Dina would be a super choice for you she is athletic enough but also mellow enough for apartment living and is very well socialized with people and other dogs and has great house manners is crate trained and housebroken and has a perfect temperament."  That all sounds good, and the dog looks cool in the pictures that look like they were taken with whatever cell phone camera you people determined is the shittiest.

She says "Dora would be good too but a little more energetic."

I'm free to go meet her and the others almost anytime next week, which will work well because I'll know if Tosh will be available and can make one long-ass trip south if I had to go all the way to Winlock instead of just to Auburn for Dina.  Plus, there's no game next Sunday so I'll be free to make the final pickup and devote the whole day to a welcome home.

What sort of specifics should I ask about Dina, a female pit bull terrier mix, if I go?  I still don't know how old she is.  Are there more details on facebook?

Have had a few of these.  If you took the most hyper dog you have had, fed it a steady diet of crack and meth, and constantly shook it's face, you would see what a normal Brittany pup us like.

For pets, I think females are generally better for the reasons mentioned, but one issue...females, when they fight they are more apt to fight to the death, so if she is defensive or food aggressive just take note of that.  I've seen some nasty scraps with bitches that were otherwise very sweet but maybe some other dog sniffed their butt when they were eating or something.  With males it's usually over pretty quick.

If you get a female make sure she is spayed (all the adoptees probably are already). I don't think Trim wants to deal with dog periods.

there is no perf dog, but if he really wants one just head down to the pound and grab one like the thousands of other people who did that today.  boom, dog acquired in an hour's time

we all want the hijinx, but they don't begin until he gets the pup home (i cannot wait for this part)

The human apparently gets her phone to work at exactly 11:30 each night and responds to emails.  I'd sent her another yesterday saying that I was guessing my first one didn't take and gave her another list of options, so now we have a time Saturday morning when I'll be somewhat out in the WA equivalent of Hutch anyway.

Consensus is that Dina would be ideal, w/Dora good too, right?  Here's the info on them both again.

Finally got a hold of Tosh's foster, but now she's got Tosh meeting potential adopters this weekend so I have to wait until after to see if he's still an option.

The operator of Dora et al got back to me after I gave more specifics on what I'm looking for and has now enthusiastically raised the option of Dina.  https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/36269844  There are no details on the site but the lady says "Dina would be a super choice for you she is athletic enough but also mellow enough for apartment living and is very well socialized with people and other dogs and has great house manners is crate trained and housebroken and has a perfect temperament."  That all sounds good, and the dog looks cool in the pictures that look like they were taken with whatever cell phone camera you people determined is the shittiest.

She says "Dora would be good too but a little more energetic."

https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/34258496

Other than the above, all I know on Dina is adult, pit bull terrier mix.  Any specific questions I should ask or things to look for?  Is there an age for that type of breed that should be a dealbreaker?
Title: Re: Dogs
Post by: Emo EMAW on October 07, 2016, 09:54:22 AM
Generally speaking smaller dogs live longer than larger dogs.  Great dane'ish probably the median is like 9 years, and something small something like 12 years (maybe more?)--I'm just going off of memory/feel so could be wrong.  The dealbreaker age limit I think you'd set yourself, understanding that the last year of a natural life could be a bit spendy and tough to deal with (incontinence, more frequent vet visits, loss of vision/hearing, etc.).  At least with more sporting breeds, figure they live 12 years of natural life, at about 8 or 9 they can start to slow down considerably, so 25 or 30 percent of their life they're "retired," probably not as much fun and need more care than the first 70-75 percent of their lives.  So like, probably no more frisbee toss, but also probably still perfectly chill to hang at a bar and eat tater tots or something.

Title: Re: Dogs
Post by: Trim on October 08, 2016, 06:46:26 PM
Dora's out.  Total spaz.


Everything thought to be about Dina (Dee-na, but she has no attachment to the name, human thinks it's weird) was even more so.  My buddy who knows a lot about dogs went w/me.

Negs (all stuff discovered by my friend):

She's probably 8+ years old.  Has some gray hairs and also looks like maybe early cataracts.  My buddy called his friend who's a vet and reported that stuff and vet also guessed 8-10 years old and would expect to live to 12-14.

She's missing a toe on her rear right foot.  Doesn't seem to have any effect.  Human either didn't know or pretended not to have known.

Teeth need to be cleaned and also apparently reflected the 8+ age guess.

Human claims there's no way for me to get any better info.  Says the dog came from a kill shelter in San Bernardino, where dogs get turned in as strays w/no info even though they're probably being surrendered by owners that have the info but don't want to pay the surrender fee.


Pros:

Pretty much exactly the temperament I want.  She came out and was fine being off leash and instantly was cool and friendly w/us but not hyper at all.  She's fully house trained and could be in a crate but the human uses nothing b/c she gets along w/all the humans and dogs on this weird compound (there's an area where people are living in a tent) w/o any issues.  Says a toy or 2 and she'll be fine occupying herself while I'm working or not home.

She was able to run around just fine and fetch stuff like a younger dog.  Size is ideal.

She seemed to want to go w/us.  She even ran over to the jeep and was seeming to want to hang out w/the giant pak head on my spare tire cover.  It was pretty lol.  When we had her come out a 2nd time she was walking around w/us like she was ready to go.


I'd gone in w/a mindset that I wouldn't want her to be older than 5.  Turned out if I had evidence the dog was even 6 I'd have taken her today, even w/o having done any of the house prep.  My buddy, while ackowledging the age concern, was astonished at how well-tempered but active the dog was and how good it would work for what I want.  He kind of had a positive spin on the age in that even if I only had this dog for a few years, it's probably going to be a good experience and then I'd be more open to a wider range of dogs next time.

So I wanted a D-1 transfer.  This would specifically be a 5th year grad transfer that I'd then have to let hang around even after the season. 

Told her I'd think about it.  Both my buddy and his vet buddy think it's appropriate that I propose to her that I take the dog but have a vet visit lined up and have the equivalent of a used car mechanic's check and agree that if there's something overwhelming that the vet finds that I can return the dog.  Not sure if that's a normal thing to suggest or not.

Here's some pics from today.  Advice?

If this KSU football game can be sufficiently over by 7 my time, or maybe even if it isn't, I'm gonna go back to the original shelter and check out this dog.  Same breed, age that I'd think would reflect some calmness even though the description indicates she needs more training classes.  :ohno:

Now there's the question of if I have the patience to talk to some dipshit over there about how Dina couldn't be less "PITBULL" and/or if it's just Trim 3:16 time.  I probably don't have the patience; I've got beef w/the front desk people just from trying to pick up a package Friday.

What's mumped up is I'm not even looking for any sort of "pit" or any breed at all.  Those are just what keep coming up when I search for dogs that are going to be most suitable for here.

It wouldn't be guilt.  Most of the stuff I liked about her for my setup is directly correlated to her being old.  But I'll keep looking and find the sweet spot of not old and not a spaz.  And maybe w/o one drop of pit.

But damn, the way Dina wanted to pak w/the pak head on my jeep was pretty awesome.

Look at some Google images, most are fairly stocky in build for smaller dogs.  I don't think a miniature is required, the regular ones should be less than 50lbs, probably some in the 30-35 pound range.  Nearly every flatbed pickup you see in MT has at least one on the back, so they are very common fairly close to you.  Honestly it's a perfect breed for you.  The only downside is sometimes they're not best around kids because they tend to try to herd them, but they're not aggressive or anything.  Just damn good dogs.  Tough as crap, too.

He has the look of a dog that would be in high gear for 90% of the day which is fine if you have a big yard/house.  The other two just have to look of being laid back cuddle monsters.  Also, heelers are notoriously high strung (at least all I have been around).

be careful though with the rescue borders.  from what i can see, a lot of rescue places just look at every dog that's black and white and go, welp prolly half border and they aren't really bcs at all.

A 4 to 6 months old puppy is the way to go.  They will become very attached and do whatever they can to please you.  This is their childhood learning stage, so they will be ready to learn and willing to do.  Also, outgoing dogs are much more fun than inverted ones.

Have you looked at any herding breeds?  Like cattle dogs.  Very awesome and not so big. 

Miniature Australian Shepherds are awesome.....pricey though.



Lower body looks sickly.

https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/36439471

Look at some Google images, most are fairly stocky in build for smaller dogs.  I don't think a miniature is required, the regular ones should be less than 50lbs, probably some in the 30-35 pound range.  Nearly every flatbed pickup you see in MT has at least one on the back, so they are very common fairly close to you.  Honestly it's a perfect breed for you.  The only downside is sometimes they're not best around kids because they tend to try to herd them, but they're not aggressive or anything.  Just damn good dogs.  Tough as crap, too.


I've had Ausies for thirty years, love the breed.  Having one as a pet/work dog is akin to having a child, be prepared to have another member in your family.  Easy to train and a very smart breed that responds well to visual stimuli.  Do not own if you don't have the time or patience and they all have their own personality.  A good sheering come May is a very good idea because the heat can be brutal on them, they were bred to work in the mountains. 

That's my warning.   :dubious:

the short hair border collies are fun because at some point in history all the smart stuff associated with border collies was bred out of them (along with their long hair). so it's more like a regular dog and doesn't have to have a job to do all the time. great dog.

Would she need a yard to be able to have room to play long games of fetch, or would I be able to get her run around enough just doing the walking and running around town I plan to do?

I don't think I'm supposed to have the dog off leash even in the pet area of the courtyard.  Is it a thing to have a ridiculously long (to the point of being practically useless) leash or one that extends and retracts like a tape measure?
Title: Re: Dogs

Cool.  Yeah, there's plenty of off-leash areas I can walk to and do that once I know there'd be no negative consequence to unleashing.  I want to make sure though I could quickly do a kroger game of fetch right outside my place during 15-minute breaks.

this is my experience and not necessarily the case for all BCs

long hair border collie: will play frisbee fetch until heart gives out. in fact, human needs to be the one to officially stop the game every time so that LHBC does not pass out or die

short hair border collie: will maybe go after the frisbee but not bring it all the way back. instead, will find a place in the shade to lay down with frisbee and look at human.

Gypsy is the barkiest dog they have at that place.  You pull up in the parking lot and hear some dog going nuts from deep inside the facility, and it turns out to be Gypsy.  I'm not going back to that shelter.  It's rough ridin' crazy. 

The place with Ellie is supposed to respond w/in 7-10 days from yesterday.  They bring the dog to your place and size it up and tell you if it'll work or not.

that gypsy dog looks hot as eff, too bad about her being barky.  border collies shouldn't bark much, but with mixes, you never know.


on border collies/exercise (my experience).  they're very athletic and like doing athletic things, but they really just like doing what they like doing and the running and jumping and whatnot is incidental.  so if you have one that likes balls and fetching, just tossing the ball to it in your living room while you watch tv is just about as fun for it as taking it to a park and having it run to chase down the ball.

I have heard that sometimes if you're adopting a hunting breed they make you sign something that says you won't take said dog hunting.  They also don't allow dogs to be kenneled outside in a run.

Here's where things stand now that humans are communicating.  This post will help me organize this mess as much as anything, but I need input too.



That place with Ellie finally on 10/22 forwarded my 10/10 email to the 3 foster humans.  The lady with Copper told me I could call her for more info, but Copper is the dog that was deemed a crackhead here and is down near Portland, so that doesn't seem like a good option now that there's stuff coming together close by.



These 2 dogs just got here from Texas over the weekend so the place is observing them to see if they match the descriptions and if they'd work well.  I like how both dogs look.  Callie looks like Dina in non-pitbull form.  I told them these 2 stood out to me but I'm open to any suggestions that match what I'm looking for.

Callie: https://www.gingerspetrescue.org/adoptable-dogs/#action_0=pet&animalID_0=10691355&petIndex_0=30
Blossom: https://www.gingerspetrescue.org/adoptable-dogs/#action_0=pet&animalID_0=10691429&petIndex_0=24



I'd applied at this place for Corky and Loki, but was told they wouldn't be "the right dog for a first time owner, can be a bit nippy with strangers if he gets scared."  She is evaluating other not-yet-posted dogs that just got to her Friday to see if any would be a good fit.

Corky: http://www.chewdogrescue.org/images/Corky_flyer.pdf
Loki: http://www.chewdogrescue.org/images/Loki_flyer.pdf



And here's where I have the most progress with a human on ID'n a dog.  I had asked about a dog on Friday that got adopted on Saturday.  After she got more info on my setup and what I want, she said: "Hi,  we do have a couple of dogs that would meet your home and work environment.  They may be small but they are mighty.  grin"

Gracie: https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/36276341 "Gracie is a 18 month old female terrier mix that weighs 13 lbs.  She is super sweet, wants to be with her person and has a bundle of energy to play and/or go on walks.  Gracie gets along with all size dogs, cats, children, is house broke and is a joy to live with."

Willow: https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/36343345 "Willow is Gracie's daughter.  6 months old on the 27th of Oct, weighs 7.5 lbs, and she too gets along with all dogs, cats, children and is very funny with her puppy antics.  The foster has a video of Willow playing with her two Great Danes, just makes you laugh.  Oh yes, she too is potty broke."

Those are both terriers, which were eliminated by the Corky/Loki human as being good for me.  :dunno:



So thoughts on Gracie and Willow, and if I should move forward there rather than waiting for any of the other leads I have, especially Callie and Blossom?

I'm not 100% that the first-time thing was related to the nipping thing.  It might've been that they thought Corky was difficult generally AND wouldn't be good for bars and stuff.

I keep looking at Callie.  I really like that color pattern and the stripe on the face like Dina had.  So long as they come back quick and say she's matching the texas people's description, or better, that's the one I want.

It's really just what I wanted. There's things you can do to get her fired up, real athletic for any sort of activity I could possibly want to do, but completely chill otherwise. At least that was the experience over a couple hours at the lady's house and at the bar.

I'd wanted one with stripes or spots or some distinguishing characteristics but having all those behaviors on point is too good to pass up. Her distinguishment is being weird looking and incapable of having her breeds figured out.

Find me stuff to buy in advance to spoil her with.

I've got a disproportionately big balcony, and I often leave the door open when I'm home.  The railing is adequately sized for keeping her from falling off, so I'll be fine w/her roaming around out there.  Should I, and assuming so, how will I train her that the balcony version of outside isn't the bathroom version of outside?  Or should I get some leftover shitty BSFS turf and make a corner of the balcony be "grass" that she can do whatever she wants in.

There are "grass" pads made specially for that. But also I don't think you'll have much trouble, dogs are pretty smart about where they are supposed to poop, much better than children.

Her head is proportionally smaller than the body, so the human said there were some special collars/harnesses that work better.  Found a Sonics tag though.  https://sportsfanimals.com/collections/nba-seattle-supersonics-dog/products/seattle-supersonics-dog-instant-id-tag

I've got plenty of leftover tennis balls.  I use new ones for actual tennis myself every time.

The human will get me the instructions on feeding.  It was hard for her to break down exactly when and how much b/c she feeds all her dogs together, but she's gonna work something up for me by Friday.

This came up as a related item on one of your links, and I'll need something, but I think the 2nd one will be more useful for what I'd be doing, and I could use it to get her around on the light rail and then fold it up and stuff it in a backpack.

We started feeding our dogs Blue Buffalo dog food instead of Purina One.  We noticed a lot less shedding and they seemed to digest the food better.  You can order it off of Amazon and the price is about the same as what I have seen at pet stores.  We are also feeding them a supplement called Dino-vite.  The jury is still out on that whether it is worth it or not.

I would get dog tennis balls over regular tennis balls. They are thicker rubber, probably sqeek, and last a lot longer. I started getting the size above tennis ball (slightly smaller than a softball) and that crap has lasted for 4 months instead of the 2 weeks a normal tennis ball lasts.

Thank you, Costco, for offering these bully sticks at such a wonderful price!! Bully sticks are my dog's favorite of all treats. I withheld them for a while when I learned what they were made of (bull penises), but eventually gave in because there are no other treats that he goes so absolutely ape over. (I just try not to think about it!) He's an 85 lb goldendoodle and can polish one off one of these in 30 minutes or less!

Quote
I need smaller size sticks. I have a small dog and he LOVES "his" bully sticks however the bags of sticks I received from online were predominantly very large sticks, apparently from very well endowed bulls. My poor dog couldn't even get enough in his mouth to chew on it, very frustrating for him. When I find them at a warehouse I pick through the bags looking for predominantly small sticks, which I have found. I moved and, alas, can't find them at all at the warehouse in my new town so I went online. Is there anything I can do?

Quote
I've been buying bully sticks for my dogs for several years now, and love the fact they last a long time, help clean their teeth, and are safe. What I didn't like was the variability in size of other brands that sell them by length and count. A bag with 25 x 12" bully sticks could contain sizable sticks or pencil thin ones. More often than not, they were on the thinner side. Cadet sells them by weight, which is perfect. You will get more sticks if they are thinner, and less if they are thicker. I think this is very fair. Costco price is the best I could find online.

Quote
Hi, I buy these bully sticks all the time. My daughter was buying them at her Costco and sending them to me. Yaaaa I found them online now I can order my own. My dog loves these, they are his favorite treat. Some are large and some are smaller. What my dog loves most about them is they are not smooth. They have lots of warts (bumps) on them and that is his favorite.

Quote
Hmmmm! would like to know who tasty these, says in description wholesome and good tasting, was this a human or dog?? My dogs love the bull sticks have purchased several bags from Costco great price compared to everyone else. "They do stink to high heaven when they are chewing on them" Last a long time, even Great Dane has a treat that last, rest are gone in a second or two...will buy from Costco over and over again.

Anyone have recommendations for a harness and leash that I should get right away, even if it just ends up being a temporary starer thing?  I was just in a pet store and they had a harness that looked adequately comfortable and said it would also function w/a seatbelt for car rides, but it was like $45 and I didn't even know what size I'd need.  I'd rather find something on amazon that's like $20 or less and I'd get multiple sizes and one would work.

I'm planning on using a harness for walks because the human recommended that or that I'd need to get a somewhat unique collar given her head/body sizing.  I'll find a collar that's just for that Sonics tag and her ID.  These harnesses all seem adequate.

You need a long leash, especially if you have a big dog like we do. But you just bring the leash on the underside of the dog then loop it up the back. If the dog pulls it gives a gentle squeeze the width of the leash and doesn't pull on the face or neck.

Purina is the world leader in research of dog nutrition.  Try to max out calories/$ if you're trying to get analytical.  High fat high protein.  DHA is good for pups.  I feed Purina Performance which I think is a 30/22 fat/protein.  You can feed less of that (volume wise) than other food so it ends up being cheaper even though it's more expensive per bag.  But, you really are over thinking it.  It's a dog.  Feed it food.  If it gets fat feed it less.

As with everything I'm not an expert on, my point is that I just want to be told by the human that's been feeding this dog for 3 months exactly what she's found works best and I'll blindly keep doing that vs. researching alternatives or g'n af about how much it is. I stick to directions well.

I got a softshell (?) somewhat portable crate that I expect I'll have set up most if the time but I don't know how much I'll insist on using it. I gathered Betty doesn't eff w/things in the house, but I'll have it in case. It was more for trying to use on trains, users, boats, etc. before I'd have to resort to buying that service dog harness.

Our dog had one of those self feeder things that just keep doling out the food as they eat it (no portion control whatsoever) and she never over ate. So I agree with pmshead that it depends on the dog.

The collar I need for her weird body doesn't arrive until tomorrow or Sunday, so I've got a temporary Seahawks green colored one getting prime now'd over.

She's crate-trained according to the description and human, but the human doesn't force her to a crate when the human leaves.  So I guess the crate's just there if she wants it to chill in.  I'll be putting her bed in the crate so I guess that'll make it more enticing.

She's still listed for adoption right now, which I guess confirms to me how janky that process has been for the last few months.

I'll be surprised if she's into that crate when the right-sized one arrives.  She doesn't seem to like tight spaces. I bought a big pet bed and put in the living room and she's been glued to that most of the time.  She still hasn't pissed or crap since arriving, and has barely ate.  The human said that's what she did for the first day or so at the human's place too.  I'd put her bowls in the kitchen in a spot that would leave the most room for everything else, but I don't think she likes being in there b/c it's narrow.  I tried putting her bed in there to see if the bed fandom would offset the kitchen hate, and she's abandoned the bed to lay on the floor in the living room.  I moved her bowls out there too but she's barely pecking at it.

Do I just put the bowls back in the kitchen where I want her to eat and trust that eventually she'll realize that's how it's got to be?

you're feeding a dry dog food?  if so, just leave out the same bowlful (or take it away and bring it back out at whatever time you plan on feeding her, if that's what you prefer).

i wouldn't move her bowl from where you want her to eat, but you can handfeed her individual kibbles if she has any interest in food.  like not handfuls, just have her do something she knows how to do (sit, come, whatever) and give her a kibble as if it was a treat.
Title: Re: Dogs
Post by: Trim on November 12, 2016, 05:19:04 PM
Primarily dry, but I put some wet in w/it at the human's suggestion, and then added some of the pumpkin the human brought.  She's pecked at the wet food but seems disinterested in the dry.  So, I'm gathering I might have to dump the whole thing at some point since it's dry mixed w/wet and pumpkin?

The human didn't have feeding times.  She said she'd put out 2 cups of dry w/some wet mixed in, twice a day, and that Betty/Payton would have eaten it all before the next time she'd put a new cycle out.

I put the bowls back where I'd prefer them.  They're perfectly sized so that I can put them all the way towards the back of the kitchen and the refrigerator door and a cabinet door open above them so I lose no space.  I ordered one of those elevated bowl things thinking maybe that was a problem but I'll wait and exhaust all options w/the ground-level ones before finding a place for that contraption.

I hand-served her some water yesterday, when she wasn't drinking out of the bowl, which got me off-track thinking it was a bowl/location/height issue.

She can reach it; she's just in that acclimation wtf window.  We just spent a bunch of time at the bar and she drank the crap out of the water from their guest dog bowl that's even lower to the ground than mine. 

Everyone here loves the idea of Payton, plus it'll be easy to get the matching hoops jersey that won't be too cumbersome.  So blow me away w/an idea - a (go)EMAW name that works for a girl would get the highest consideration.

You really needed someone there to get that on video.......

Vet says all is normal, and to stick w/just the dry food being left in the bowl in the kitchen until Payton gives up and accepts that's where the dining room is.  Vet said to skip the wet food and the pumpkin being mixed in as that's just to incentivize eating the dry food, and it's clear that eating the dry food on its own isn't the issue.  She's only down a pound since getting here*.

Got all the sizing figured out so I can return a bunch of the extra crap I bought.  Vet thinks Payton won't be interested in the crate as her own luxury apartment given her affinity for the bed and duck, but I'll probably keep it as a travel thing if it looks cool once I get it.

Vet gave her a bordetella vaccine after looking at all the texas vet paperwork, and said I have to take her back for another rabies shot next year.  I was given a flea bill to feed her once we've got eating on point.

Just realized I forgot to ask about grooming/bathing.  I know I'll be taking Payton back to that place to get her nails/claws trimmed, but I don't know how often.  As to bathing, is it just convincing her to get in the tub and hosing her down with the Tobias guest room elite shower head?

*right as we got back to my place and went through the courtyard, she pulled over to the leafiest area and dropped a solid deuce, so maybe down another pound now  :woot:

Also crate training your dog is the easiest and most important thing you can do for her and yourself.

the reasoning behind crating a dog extends beyond protecting your stuff.  it gives them a sense of security, it's their doom cave in their mind's eye

Exactly right.

she probs needs a real crate but whateves.  she will not want to use it unless she's been crate trained.  otherwise she will hate your unholy guts until she gets used to it and then all of the sudden it will be the coolest thing in the world to her, like her first apartment or whatever

I've received the crate, and she's terrified by it, as I expected given her aversion to tight spaces.  I've got it set up w/all 3 side doors and the ceiling open, her preferred bed and duck in it, and I even tried putting the ham strips she craves in w/it.  She won't have anything to do with it.  I picked her up and put her in while the sides were closed and as soon as I opened 1 barely, she darted out.

She doesn't eff w/anything in my place.  She loves her open-air doom cave apartment that is her bed in a specific spot in my living room, with her duck on it.  Is there any reason to keep rough ridin' with this thing?  Everything I read on dog expert sites matches what was said on here as far as the benefits being 1) keeping her contained if necessary and 2) giving her her own space.  Neither seem necessary, and the latter seems traumatic to her. 

The only benefit I can see of forcing her to deal w/this is that on the rare occasions it's necessary for travel or something, she'll be tolerant of it.

I think I figured out the food.  It seems like she needs to see me take it out of the bag and put in the bowl, as opposed to having a full bowl out on the ready all the time.  I can even fake it sometimes by just putting a little more out of the bag on top of what was in there.

I probably shouldn't press my luck, but she picks the most difficult things to pick poop out of to poop on.  There's a giant thing of turf that would be incredibly easy for me to see and retrieve that stuff, but she goes into this more nature-y area next to it and finds some leaves or plants to dump on, to where I can barely find it or easily get it.  I suppose the benefit is when I can't, it won't be obvious to the hundreds of people potentially looking at me that I didn't.

Lots of progress going on here!

Yep.  Most of them are working out for my purposes, and the ones that are frustrating seem to work themselves out after a few days of me trial & error'n a happy medium.  So far, so good.

I need to get out to the dog park more and places where I can get her off leash but contained, so that I can get confident in being able to reign her in.  There's options for her to play w/other dogs at the bars and especially in my courtyard, but we're not supposed to have them off leash and I'm not confident in being able to quell a problem if it came up.  I let her off once and she did a bunch of turbo laps and tired out so I could get her easily.  When other dogs come in and are off-leash or on a retractable, I want to let her play but I'm not ready to let her off leash, so the other dogs kind of eff w/her b/c they're free-range.

Last night, she was ready to sleep and I took her out so she could go to the bathroom.  She was just about to go and some dude came in w/his dog on one of those retractable leashes that he kept letting in and out and it disrupted Payton's whole routine.  I tried to let them play for a bit but the dude's dog was being a eff so I wanted to take Payton away and start over when they were done, but he kept letting the rough rider retract after us.  I had to tell the weirdo that it was after 10 and I'm just trying to get us all to bed and he was all mad that I wouldn't let this brand-new dog on a 6-foot leash be buckwild w/his fucko dog.

I've had a lot less tolerance for street people and drifting tourists and non-space-aware locals too since this.  Payton's gonna have me choking someone soon.  I'm gonna end up being her X-Man instead of her Kemp.

Definitely need to get her more off leash time, but the leash is gonna be a necessity almost all of the time outside of my apartment for now.  It's dangerous for a dog out in these skreets.  I'll love it when we can get to a point where she can be off leash inside public places like bars and the apartment courtyard and I'd have no problem keeping her in check when something pops off.

Post by: Trim on November 18, 2016, 05:23:41 PM
Are there non-food "treats" that are good to use for positive reinforcement?  She gets to thinking she's too good for dog food when she knows there's treat food in existence in the world, plus it probably fucks up her appetite.  I'd like to be able, for now, to reserve food treats for after she eats her dog food, and have something else to reward good outdoor shits and other bigly dog accomplishments.
Title: Re: Dogs
Post by: sys on November 18, 2016, 05:40:03 PM
training is mostly about reward and punishment.  food rewards are really good for early training because they are very fast (you can deliver them at exactly when you want, which makes it easier for the dog to figure out why it's being rewarded) and unambiguous.  if you think you are giving her too much food (just because she doesn't want to eat all the kibble you offer doesn't necessarily mean she's getting too much food as rewards), the easiest thing is use smaller food rewards (and you are probably giving them more frequently than you need to - you don't need to reward everything she does).

there are all sorts of other ways to reward an animal if you really want to move away from food.  play is the other big one that people like to use.  it works well for dogs with a high prey drive.  but any resource that she wants more of than she has and that you control access to can be a training reward.



i thought the whole point of not getting a pup was that wanted a dog already trained to some degree?  you shouldn't need to reward shitting.
Title: Re: Dogs
Post by: Trim on November 18, 2016, 05:49:01 PM
I've probably mumped up some of that.  I've often forgotten to take treats out with me so I'm not able to give her anything until we come back in.  That, combined w/how in the first few days I'd have to take her bed away to get her to be not comatose and to try to use its return to reward eating, makes her sprint back to my place to try to beat me back to her bed.  Dumb, as she's leashed to me, but whatever. 

Today, when we came back from shitting, I didn't take her off leash right away inside and we sat in the kitchen until she ate.  Once she starts eating, she kills the whole bowl quick.  I immediately rewarded her w/treat food.

I don't know why I reward shitting.  Just seemed like a good idea.  She knows to go outside for sure.  I guess I'm just trying to positively reinforce the whole process of her cooperating in going outside or letting me know she needs to and getting the job done out there.  I'll try doing the playtime out there, which goes back to being able to get her off the leash.  We're gonna go put in some extra time at the dog park tonight.

That's what's been so counter-intuitive to me this week.  I've been wanting to reward her when she's doing good stuff (even expected good stuff) to keep that train rolling, and I want to be an bad person to her when she's being an bad person but it feels like a bad idea to be bad person'n this early.

you don't really have to be much of an bad person.  a stern tone and harsh look does a lot to a dog as far as correcting bad behavior.  so far it doesn't sound like she's had bad behavior though.

going forward i wouldn't reward after feeding.  pooping, i would just reward her verbally.  also a little activity will shake the bowels loose.  if i want mine to poop (like say she hasn't pooped all day but i'm about to go out for the evening) then i just throw the ball for a min or two and she'll have to stop and poop.

Got it.  I'll take some to the park or when we're out and about and I'm trying to command her to do what I want, but I'll quit food-rewarding her just because she's making me happy doing regular dog stuff.

I saw the bull dicks at costco a couple days ago, but bought some softer chicken/apple sausages instead.  She seems to do better with the soft stuff; she's not one to get a bone or something and gnaw on it for a while.

That makes sense, but the snags I've run into are her food stubbornness generally and my limited options on getting her off leash and free to play.  And I'm hesitant to be too stern w/her because it seems so likely she's probably been around some bad people pre-Seattle, just with how jumpy she is sometimes.

the big trend in training these days is positive only reinforcement.  i don't agree with that necessarily, i think there's a place for fear as motivation, but i do think it's best to lean much heavier on the positive stimuli.  in general, my feeling is that positive is really good at helping them do stuff you want them to, and and negative is good at getting them to not do stuff you don't want them to.

yes.

and as far as being stern, i'm just meaning like you she her do something you don't like, immediately say "NO" in a slightly raised voice.  not like a scream or something, but just in a stern voice to stop the action, and then that's it.  after she stops the action then go back to being nice, it doesn't need to last more than a moment.

but, you also haven't really said she has any bad behaviors, so maybe it's not applicable right now.  as she becomes more comfortable she'll probably start testing a little.

Yeah, there haven't really been any acts so to speak of bad behavior, just some general non-cooperation - refusing to leave the bed or come to where I need her to be, food, etc.

That bed is tricky.  In some ways, I hate it because it so dominates her life.  But I also appreciate it in that it's an invisible crate that's more effective than I could ever imagine a real one being.

Productive night. Courtyard was calm so I let her off and she was pretty good running with me and was real compliant when it was leash time, almost like she wanted back on. Stopped at the bar on the way to get her some water and she was cool around the eagles fans and some giant rough ridin' elephant dog in a maclin jersey. Got her out to the dog park and free-ranged her and she did real well with some tiny, fancy dogs brought in by some asians.

She's still only using the courtyard as a bathroom, but there also still hasn't been a need for her you try elsewhere. Might change tomorrow when we pak for the game. Should def change thanksgiving when we're out in the suburbs, probably overnight.

I got her a kids' small sonics shirt and cut it up so she could wear it backwards,but she won't walk far in it, at least not at regular speed. I think it's still to restrictive. I'm gonna try cutting the back (her front) all the way down and try it like a vest.

I am a gentleman of impeccable taste so I would only ever run birddogs (English pointers and setters).  But, I do have to say that if I were to go outside of these breeds a GSP would be the way to go, but maybe not for reasons you'd suspect.

1)  They are very popular, therefore there are lots of breedings around, and they are also very diverse.  You can find 75 lb GSP's and you can find 35 lb GSP's.  Some are athletic and fast and wide ranging, some are more mopey and plodding and slow boot lickers.  Really you can get any flavor you'd like.  And like pointers/setters, you can get a nice puppy for $600, but you could spend more if it were a breeding you absolutely wanted. 

2)  They are generally pretty tough dogs, handle pain well, don't take too much water, aren't a pain in the ass maintenance wise.  Many you could run 6 hours a day. 

3)  Generally strong retrieving and "hunt dead" desire.  Makes a great "one dog guy" kind of dog.  The right dog can do it all, but it's a generalist, so it might not retrieve like a lab, or find birds like a setter.  Every one I have been around has had a pretty good nose, "birdy" dogs for sure.

I like the white ones with some spotting or ticking in the 45-50 pound range.

At that vet visit, they gave me what I thought would be a pill for fleas.  I finally gave it to her Sunday and it turned out to be a relatively big, chewy thing.  It took a while for me to get her to go for it.  Next day, she wasn't eating well and was straining while shitting.  She also wasn't being so picky about where to piss, which I thought was a good thing (free-range, albeit outside).  By last night, she was liquid shitting (diarrhea) and generally seemed human flu-like.  Carried on to this morning.  I think she was associating the flavor food from when it started with being sick; I was able to get her to eat a different flavor, so that's good. 

I since read this can all be a side effect of the particular flea stuff I gave her.  I emailed the vet, who said she's not seen that before but would note it and to come in if it lasted a few more days.  Then I called the dog trainer, who we had a complimentary session set for this afternoon, to cancel.  When I told her what was going on, she instantly knew of the side effect to that particular medicine and how it would only happen the first time and that the sickness would be just like a 48-hour flu.

Why does the dog trainer at some generic suburban petsmart know all that, but the vet doesn't?

At that vet visit, they gave me what I thought would be a pill for fleas.  I finally gave it to her Sunday and it turned out to be a relatively big, chewy thing.  It took a while for me to get her to go for it.  Next day, she wasn't eating well and was straining while shitting.  She also wasn't being so picky about where to piss, which I thought was a good thing (free-range, albeit outside).  By last night, she was liquid shitting (diarrhea) and generally seemed human flu-like.  Carried on to this morning.  I think she was associating the flavor food from when it started with being sick; I was able to get her to eat a different flavor, so that's good. 

I since read this can all be a side effect of the particular flea stuff I gave her.  I emailed the vet, who said she's not seen that before but would note it and to come in if it lasted a few more days.  Then I called the dog trainer, who we had a complimentary session set for this afternoon, to cancel.  When I told her what was going on, she instantly knew of the side effect to that particular medicine and how it would only happen the first time and that the sickness would be just like a 48-hour flu.

8/10 of their yelp reviews are 5 (of 5, not 7) stars. The 2 that aren't are people complaining about cat grooming or boarding.

I forgot part of the free-range story.  Prior to yesterday, the only place she crap aside from a specific part of the courtyard was at my buddy's yard where she spent almost 24 hours and had no choice.  Yesterday, we were walking down a busy downtown sidewalk, and she suddenly stopped and unloaded.  Before I realized it was part of her being sick, I was kind of jazzed that we wouldn't be so restricted on bathroom locations.

Dogs get sick, it happens. Usually when they do it shows up as diarrhea. I know when I got my first pup I was constantly worried about her. But 99% of the time it's just a day or two, or something weird they ate, or in your case a side effect of medicine.

Make sure her bowl is full of water, give her lots of bathroom breaks, she'll be fine, dogs are incredibly resilient and quick healing creatures.

She just shat pretty well, both to wear I could and had to pick it up as it was visibly sitting atop these palm-ish leaves in the courtyard. 

I gotta figure out now how to get her to eat the flavor of food she's associating with getting sick.  I'm trying to mix the 2 I have so she gets over the aversion.  I remember having the same thing with burger king for years after it was the last thing I ate before having my first bad radiation sesh.

Is it natural for them to lick their asses (for cleaning?) after shitting?  I've been discouraging it, but maybe they're already evolved for it.

vets and advice people love to tell you that splintered bone stuff.  it can happen, but it's not common.  most dogs eat 99.9999% of bones just fine.  it's really just risk mgmt/personal preference.  i give my dogs cooked bones of all species all the time.  once i had to pick a chunk of bone out from where it got stuck between his teeth.  that's once out of 9 million bones.

if you give her bones, i'd watch to make sure she seems to know like she knows what she's doing with it (basically settles down to gnaw in a relaxed fashion and not trying to gulp it down before you change your mind and take it away from her) and just prolly only give her bones when you're around to see if she has a problem.

I'd only read lib's response by the time the bone was available.  She was staring at me and it, and started approaching as I was about to put in the trash.  I didn't want to traumatize her by continuing to trash it in her face, so I put the plate away and will trash it later.  I told her lib said she can't have it and gave her a regular dog treat.

We just went for a long walk and came back through the courtyard.  I was about to let her off leash so she could run or whatever when another dog came up, but her human was down w/them both being off leash and playing.  That was going well, and another little bulldog came down off leash, and that dog's whole goal was to sex Payton.  It was like 30 minutes of "Mr. Brown" trying to orally pleasure anything he could and getting away with it for a second before Payton would snap on him.  But they both seemed to be having fun, him sexually assaulting and her popping off and running wild to escape/chase him.

When she plays w/dogs, her eyeballs almost pop completely out of her sockets, cartoon-style.

In college we had some dog jerky treat things, decided to eff with people and put them in a zip lock back. People ate them and said they weren't that bad, so we tried them and they weren't the worst thing ever. Very bland, but probably better than having a strong shitty flavor.

New issue.  Her last 4 or so shits have been on busy sidewalks while walking around.  It's not that she's sick or off schedule or backed up or anything.  In this latest instance, we wandered the courtyard acceptable poop spots for like 10 minutes before heading out, and she sniffed out a tree shortly thereafter before moving on and shitting in the middle of the sidewalk w/no warning.

I feel like I can't get too mad b/c it's certainly better than happening inside, but I gotta figure out how to get her back to using spots that aren't for human walking.  Tips?

There are treats that she finds beneath her.  I'd gotten these, and she had gotten into a pattern of going psycho happy at the thought of getting one after a meal.

(http://www.pedigree.com/Images/2011/really-good-food/product-shots-large/dentastix-beef-flavor-small-medium.jpg)

I switched it up and bought these mint ones last time, thinking if the goal is teeth/breath stuff, that "mint" is better than "beef."  She was all fired up and took it, gave me her WTF look and chewed on it for like 15 seconds before spitting it out and leaving it to lay on the ground all day.

(http://www.pedigree.com/Images/2011/really-good-food/product-shots-large/dentastix-fresh-small-medium.jpg)

I'd bought some chewy treat things that were for sneaking pills inside of, back when I thought the pill I had to give her that gave her the shits was a "pill."  I'd given her one of the treats sans pill just to get her accustomed to them, and she promptly spit that one out too.  You gotta come with the flavors she craves, not just any treat thought suitable for a dog.

I got something from the bougie pet store that are like treat on the outside and toothpaste on the inside that she went for, albeit not as much as the beef dentastix.  They're relatively expensive though so I was gonna do a 2/1 or 3/1 mix of stix and paste treat. 

But she can deal with the rough ridin' mint stix now until she rectifies her sidewalk crap'n.  She's currently laying bedless with a big-time shamed look on her face.

I took the bed away and went in my room and closed the door, for shaming purposes, and when I came out, she was laying on a bed-size grouping of papers I'd laid on the floor that I need to have access to all of for a meeting.

This sidewalk thing really has me vexed.  Like, she knows it's unacceptable to crap inside.  She knew for weeks to crap on grass or grass-ish things.  In fact, she'd go into the deeper of grass in the courtyard and once in my buddy's yard.  So, it's like she wants a touch of privacy.  Yet, she's also fine with just setting up shop in the middle of a busy sidewalk when there's trees and such all around.  I can't imagine there's issues with not being able to hold it, as she's had crap options in the courtyard immediately prior to shidewalk shits.  Today's happened when we were like a minute from getting back to the courtyard.  WTF?

tell me a little more about when (when in the outing) she is shitting and where she has gone before and where she is going next.  she is on leash for the entire outing?


When we're outside, the only time she's off leash is in the courtyard area and just for a little bit when I see there isn't anyone out there, or when there's other dogs out there and everyone's in agreement the dogs can play off leash.

When we're going out for a walk in the city, I will always walk her around the courtyard for a bit first so she can piss or poop.  Sometimes she does, sometimes she doesn't.  Today for example, she just stood there bored af in the courtyard, while angling towards the door to the outside that to me indicated she was ready to walk.  We walked for about 10 minutes with no issues and were just about back when she suddenly shat.  There have been other times when she suddenly shat within a couple minutes of the walk.  On all occasions, she would have recently passed a tree on a cutout of grass or dirt that would've been better for shitting on.

Before and after these problem times, she shits in various acceptable places in the courtyard, whether that's from the shame or because I've been scared to even allow her to go for walks until I thought we were over the problem.

What I want her to do is crap in the most acceptable areas, either when the opportunity presents itself most times or to hold it until we're back there, or at least go to a grass/dirt/tree area if the need to crap arises mid-walk.

Plot twist: I just took her out to the courtyard and she crap in a good spot.  Maybe she stopped shitting on the sidewalk an hour or so ago mid-crap when I was saying no and saved a batch for the courtyard?  Both seemed like full regular amounts.  I gave her a treat outside and her bed back once inside.

Title: Re: Dogs
Post by: sys on December 12, 2016, 06:46:05 PM
i think she's decided that the courtyard is too close to where she lives for acceptable shitting so she's avoiding it (when she first arrived, she prolly wasn't real sure where she was living or where would be a good place for shitting, now that she's had a while to figure it out, she's made her decision and it's not the courtyard).

i'd also guess that there is something about walking around where you walk her that she doesn't consider ideal for shitting, so she's probably holding off until a better time.  then when she sees that you're heading back home she has to abandon her preferences and just evacuate where she can.  it may be the leash, it may be you aren't walking her to where she wants to crap, or the area is too busy or maybe you walk her in different directions and sometimes you go where she wants but sometimes you don't and she can't predict it.

the shitting on the sidewalk early in the walk doesn't really fit with that so much.  but i'd still lean that way.  at least with the having decided the courtyard is too close part.

if you can pick her up with out getting the ass part of her near you, just pick her up and move her to where you want her.  that will beth move the crap before it comes out (hopefully) and she won't like it, so it's a negative stimulus.

i think she's decided that the courtyard is too close to where she lives for acceptable shitting so she's avoiding it (when she first arrived, she prolly wasn't real sure where she was living or where would be a good place for shitting, now that she's had a while to figure it out, she's made her decision and it's not the courtyard).

i'd also guess that there is something about walking around where you walk her that she doesn't consider ideal for shitting, so she's probably holding off until a better time.  then when she sees that you're heading back home she has to abandon her preferences and just evacuate where she can.  it may be the leash, it may be you aren't walking her to where she wants to crap, or the area is too busy or maybe you walk her in different directions and sometimes you go where she wants but sometimes you don't and she can't predict it.

the shitting on the sidewalk early in the walk doesn't really fit with that so much.  but i'd still lean that way.  at least with the having decided the courtyard is too close part.

Hmmm, other than the 4-6 sidewalk shits (1 when she was sick, the rest this last week), and once on the thanksgiving trip to my buddy's yard, every crap has been in the courtyard.  And in places within the courtyard that she doesn't play in.  Including like 10 minutes ago.  The deeper rough areas of the courtyard are def her preferred crap spots.

No way.  She doesn't like getting picked up period, there isn't always an appropriate spot that I'd be able to get her do, the 1st of the crap's already out (like we're walking fine and then I'll notice for one second she's not on my pace and I'll look and she's squatted over with crap out) and I'm not at all confident I could avoid the crap on me.

Title: Re: Dogs
Post by: Trim on December 12, 2016, 07:12:11 PM
Here's a picture of the courtyard.  I'll get a better one tomorrow when it's light out that more captures the area she frequents.  Where you see snow it's all turf, and just out of frame to the left are various bush/grass areas.  She's free to go anywhere on the turf/bush/grass, but almost always pees on the bush/grass and always (when not out on the sidewalk) shits in the bush/grass.  So I'd say there's options (and she uses lots of them) within the courtyard.

There are a few tree/dirt spots on the lower street level that would work well too, but she's never taken advantage of them, even though they're earmarked for shitting in that they have city-provided poop bag dispensers and receptacles. 

I'd be fine with anyplace that humans aren't traversing through, but the courtyard and spots right around my building are better of course so that me letting her crap doesn't always involve having to walk somewhere.

But in the event we're away from the building and she needs to crap, I'd like her to crap in the dirt/grass/tree things that are usually no more than 40 feet away from any spot.  However, I don't think on these sidewalk occasions that she's truly NEEDED to crap.  There's no way given the timing of them that it's been a matter of us getting to the end of the crap tank at those very moments.

while she's actually pooping in the courtyard repeat "poop time", or whatever phrase you want, a few times and do it every time until she gets it.  i use "go poop" "go pee" and when she's just dicking around in the morning she gets a "go potty".  it probably all sounds the same to her, but it works thankfully.  used to live in a limited acceptable pooping area like you and it made life much easier to train her to do it on command. doesn't really matter now that i can put her in the backyard for 20 minutes and let her do whatever tf she wants.

if you want her to crap in the courtyard, then it's super easy (i couldn't tell in the photo if the courtyard is enclosed or not, but i'm assuming it is).  when she needs to crap or you want her to crap, take her down to the courtyard.  if she shits, immediately take her for a walk.  if she doesn't crap after five minutes or so, take her back upstairs and ignore her.  then try her again in a few hours or whenever is convenient.

assumptions - 1) she likes going for walk, 2) she hasn't crap in the house.


that doesn't solve the shitting on the sidewalk when she doesn't need to crap issue, but it should pretty quickly get her to take a crap anytime you take her to the courtyard.  if you want to turbocharge the learning process, give her a little food as you leash her up for the walk and a couple of times along the walk.
Title: Re: Dogs
Post by: sys on December 12, 2016, 07:29:44 PM
actually, it's prolly best to immediately give a little food at least the first few times because you're prolly going to delay the getting the walk part while you leash up and bag the crap.

if you're ok socially with dealing with the crap later, than just moving immediately to the walk is fine.
Title: Re: Dogs
Post by: sys on December 12, 2016, 07:30:52 PM
or if she knows a word or cue for walk then you can just signal that the walk is coming and she can anticipate while you bag the crap.

More often than not, she's leashed during the courtyard shits, so it's just a matter of bagging and disposing of the crap.  But I can take a treat out to give her for that interim time before we'd move on to a walk.  And I guess I can simultaneously be trying the verbal command stuff too.

The only downside to all that are times when I want to go for a walk with her at a moment and don't want to wait for her to crap.  And I like to take her out for walks a lot.  Like most times if I'm walking somewhere, so is she.

Good day so far.  Only 2 times outside, both out to the courtyard first, at which she pissed, ran around a bit and then crap.  I wasn't prepared for crap the 2nd time, so I didn't have any treats, but we did walks after each one.

It wouldn't address the sidewalk thing, but I'm thinking that maybe I'd been taking her out too many times.  I'd been wondering about what sys said about how she'd eventually crap each time out to the courtyard, and how that would be a lot given how often she goes out for piss only.  Maybe if I cut back on the total times out, everything will sync up.  She's been just fine w/only 2 outings today so far.

3rd crap accomplished, but I forgot to say "poop time."  Got her a treat and a walk.  It took a while.  She pissed right away and then ran on the turf and played with another dog for a while and then watched a dog a level below play fetch, and only when I took her back on the turf and unleashed her did she crap.  Unleashing her def seems to increase the odds she shits, but it's not consistent.  I'd def rather have her leashed for shitting so that I can keep her in check while I bag.

Have gone to the courtyard 3 or 4 times today, and only 1 crap and thus only 1 walk.  She just tried the 2nd tiny piss on 1 outing thing to try to fake a crap.  Only being able to go walking around after she shits is really cramping our style.

Took her out this morning.  She shat, I chanted, we walked.  Took her out about an hour ago b/c we needed to go somewhere, she pissed twice, wouldn't crap, we went anyway.  Walked about a mile or so, heading back, and she just stops and shits not on a traditional sidewalk but in the middle of this plaza area that the whole city walks through en route to the stadium (or marches through, in soccer's stupid case).

mocat, the artisan coffee place is on the left.

Partial success?  There's been no sidewalk shits since my last update, but "poop time" is still a complete failure.  I just don't take her out of the courtyard unless she shits, and I take her out every time she shits.  Obviously, that doesn't always match up with when I want to take her out.  But there's been a couple indicators that something may have sunk in, separate from the other efforts.  Twice now, after the original crap and going out, we've returned home through the courtyard where she's promptly crap (on one outing, 2 separate times!).  So I hope that means on those walks home, she could've sidewalk-crap, but chose not to.

I still don't have any idea when I can know anything's been accomplished to where I can go out w/her even if she doesn't crap first, and know that she won't sidewalk-crap and put us back at square 1.

I don't think so. Because of the time it takes me to bag and dispose, I've been instantly giving her a treat, and she eats while I clean up. It's always a minute or two before we're walking. She does seem to expect an immediate treat now though when shitting in the courtyard.

Work on rewarding the hell out of her for whatever command you want to poop.  My dog knows "potty"/leak and "more potty"/duce. Works pretty well to get her to go when she is out on a walk and I get her in a spot I want her to crap in.  It's weird, but you have to celebrate her shitting in the right spot, while repeating your catch phrase, like she is making a renaissance masterpiece.

Words seem to have little effect compared to actions or patterns, in any aspect of her training #life.  There's certain times when I want her to sit (leashing up, taking a treat) and me saying "sit" doesn't seem to be the impetus compared to her just knowing what she should do or me gesturing.  Maybe the on-demand crap could be prompted by me preemptively taking out a bag, which would be ideal in that I'd be ready to go immediately after she does.

I don't think you should be really approaching anything negative at this point if it's only been a week or two.  Depending on breed it can take a long while.  It seems like you are looking for a quick lesson for your pup to pick up on.  I assume she is pretty young?  Sorry if this was another page back.

2-year-old lab w/a mystery mix of pug or sharpei or pit or others, maybe some cat.  Had her for a little over a month now.  She sidewalk-shat once about a week or so in, but that seemed understandable, as she was sick and having lots of side effects from some flea medicine.  But otherwise, her bathroom etiquette was great.  Then out of nowhere about 3-4 weeks in, she developed a pattern of while walking, just stopping and shitting on sidewalks without any sort of indicator she would. 

Since, I've been attempting to train the on-demand shitting, and so far it's been ineffective.  I've also been simply not taking her out of the courtyard until after she shits, which has "worked" in that she hasn't crap on a sidewalk (and possibly has even shown she's not going to), but isn't a great solution in that it limits when we can walk and forces walks when not wanted.  It also means that she's not shitting outside of courtyard world in any of the thousands of places that would be fine for her to.

Needing to get to a spot for the game, I ran her around the courtyard and even around the building to try to shake the crap loose.  Nope.  Out of time, walked her down towards the stadium among many seahawks fans going (marching?) that way too.  She crap in the middle of walking across a street and trailed it up onto the sidewalk.  Couldn't even pick it all up between the wetness and cars running over the street crap.  Humans were no help in the shame game.  Even the ones that stepped in the crap and subsequently saw the crap'r Payton were all "oh was that from youuuuuuuuu? Cute dog!!!" because she was in her 'hawks jersey.

So I apparently can't take her away from my building unless she happens to crap first.  crap on command isn't happening, and there's apparently no possible negative consequence for when she shits on concrete.  Seriously, if one of you people thinks you can fix this, let's work out a deal to have you come up and do so.  I'm sick of reading the internet about how this theoretically should be solved.

If it truly upsets you this much, I'd suggest hiring a dog trainer to work with her. We had one that worked with our dog for the entire first year of her life. Shes not perfect, but she's a hell of a lot better than most 2 yr old dogs.

I'd only be interested in a live-in trainer who stays until the job is 100% done and successful, and where in the meantime the trainer bears the brunt of cleaning up all sidewalk shits.  I obviously don't believe that that any training of how to theoretically solve the problem will affect her suddenly shitting on 1st avenue in real life.

you just have to provide her with consistent, predictable responses to her actions.  it makes it harder to figure out if, from her point of view, reactions to actions aren't consistent.  no walks without shitting first.  not until she's ready.  let her off the leash in the courtyard.

if you want to punish the pavement shitting, i still think the picking her up method is the way to go.  it will look benign to random humans in the area, but she will hate it.  you could kick her in the neck instead.  she will hate that too, but you'll probably get arrested.  maybe better than punishing her is to keep a close eye on her when you suspect shitting.  usually dogs will give you a little bit of indication and that's your cue to run/drag her to some vegetation.

I let her off leash in the courtyard all the time.  I don't see that it has any significant effect on crap'n.  The problem with the "no walks" concept in this training is that walks are the only alternative to bed #life.  Like, a walk isn't some fun outing, it's how we get anywhere.  So no walk means imprisonment.  I don't think this training concept works here.  For example, Saturday, we had no choice but to walk b/c out of time.  Tuesday, she has a bath appointment across downtown.  Am I to take her to the courtyard an hour early in the hopes she shits and I can reward her with the walk we have to take regardless and possibly end up there an hour early?  It all still depends currently on her whim to crap.  And I'm not even sure I want to warp her mind to crap only in the courtyard.  I want her to crap when she needs to crap, just in a dog appropriate spot.

I've been able to train sitting, shaking hands, getting in her shirts/coats, etc. because I can force those actions to happen and be able to reinforce them.  I can't force crap, and I certainly can't prevent crap.

No, there is no warning, no way to suspect shitting.  She walks like normal and then stops and shits.  This latest one was mid-crossing a street, so obviously no warning sign.

Like the hypothetical aggieville death trap sidewalk trees, downtown seattle has dog crap cutouts of the pavement ever-y-where, some even with city-provided shitbag dispensers.  That's ultimately the mystery: why in the courtyard when she shits, does she find the grassiest, most dignified green space to drop her load, yet in the real world, she foregoes all that for shitting in the worst spots possible among humans?

Damn glad I never had a dog in an apartment. Way to much effort into a dog taking a dump.

Far easier at my house. Dog barks at door. Open door. Make sure she leaves front porch. Drink coffee until she scratches on door.

I'm guessing some of this behavior may be from anxiety or something. Like she gets super anxious around a large groups of people and feels the need to drop a deuce.

I'm definitely no dog whisperer, so take that fwiw

I've considered that but there's no consistency to the theory.  She didn't do it the first 3 weeks or so, and even the first few times she's done it, it's been with few people around (just on a spot that would be heavily marched on by people).

New data point: last night, she shat in the courtyard before we headed out.  Ended up being at the bar longer than planned, and at one point she started barking at the door.  She rarely barks, and it's usually been b/c she wants to go to the bathroom.  So I leash her up and we go out, and she leads us on a run back to the courtyard where she pisses and shits.  Along the way, passes up plenty of spots that would've been good to piss/crap in as well as obviously the sidewalk she was sprinting on.

Not related to crap, I then went to put her to bed like she was indicating she wanted, but when she saw me going back out to the bar, she hopped up and insisted on coming too. 

Then once back at home, she woke me up w/barking that I think was prompted by the night staff sliding something under my door, as when we went outside, she just pissed a tiny amount and went right back up to bed.

I think whatever is causing the sidewalk shits is some undetectable (to me) psychological thing that is happening at those moments.

Tuesday, she has a bath appointment across downtown.  Am I to take her to the courtyard an hour early in the hopes she shits and I can reward her with the walk we have to take regardless and possibly end up there an hour early?  It all still depends currently on her whim to crap.  And I'm not even sure I want to warp her mind to crap only in the courtyard.  I want her to crap when she needs to crap, just in a dog appropriate spot.

...

That's ultimately the mystery: why in the courtyard when she shits, does she find the grassiest, most dignified green space to drop her load, yet in the real world, she foregoes all that for shitting in the worst spots possible among humans?

Latest data point: took her to the courtyard way early before the aforementioned appointment.  No piss, no crap.  She'd pissed in the morning.  Cautiously walked her to the appointment w/o incident.  Pushed my luck after I picked her up by going even further from my place to a bar I knew allowed dogs.  Not long after leaving there, and after she passed up plenty of grass/tree things, she started shitting while walking on the sidewalk.  I was able to pull her over a bit to the parking lot we were adjacent to, but she still left some nuggets on the sidewalk, and it's not like the parking lot was that better of a spot.

But for her having sidewalk crap that time this week after courtyard crap'n, I'd know the problem is what I laid out above.  Whatever it is, it's out of my skillset.  Time to throw money at this situation.  It'll be a hell of an email I send to the trainer prospects.

Something like:

"Hi.  I'm not interested in any of your classes or anything.  My dog behaves adequately in every area except one - she shits on the sidewalk while walking sometimes and there's no discernible rhyme or reason to it.  Please quote me your rates on coming to my house for as long as it takes to figure this out and get it fixed up.  T-Y."

Woke up, courtyard, prompt piss and crap.  I had no treats or my wallet b/c I was over trying to figure out a solution, so just a quick walk around the building.  She ate her food quickly after me putting it out and was generally being good, so I gave her a dog longbone to chew on.  A little bit ago she got up and was indicating she wanted to go out, so we went to the courtyard and another prompt piss and crap, for which I again had no treat b/c I didn't think she'd crap again.  We walked up to the market and got chinese fried chicken, with not even a hint of sidewalk crap possibility.  And as she's still so fresh and so clean from yesterday's bath, she got loved on by lots of tourists, which helped clear my path out of there.

On the other hand, she was just licking her own ass and then happened to fart and then stared at me for a few seconds when I was aghast before she realized how horrible that tasted and coughed and stuck out her tongue a bunch.

But at least that was all in the privacy of her own home.

If you think sidewalk shitting is bad. Dexter's separation anxiety has manifested itself as car pissing now. It doesn't matter how I try to prep him for a car ride right now, nor the length of the trip, nor how I interact with him during the trip. He is going to pee. Yesterday I played fetch with him for 20 minutes. He moved his bowels and pissed several times. I gave him a treat, we got in the car and made a 10 minute trip to the bank drive thru. I had him lay down in the passenger seat so I could pet him and talk to him throughout the trip. He didn't get up for the whole trip so I thought we finally had success. Nope, he had just peed on himself and laid in it instead.

Yes, my vehicle is too small for it to fit it in there set up, if that is what you are getting after. He still displays a lot of signs of anxiety even at my house where he has mostly settled in now. It's just going to take a lot of work. I think he spent far more time in a shelter than they led me to believe when I adopted him. Pit Bulls are known for having anxiety issues fairly bad, anyway. He will get there eventually.

Yes and no, I'm no longer in a tiny apartment. I have moved into a town home. We have a decent sized front yard that he can play off leash in, if I am outside with him. He doesn't spend a lot of the time in the crate anymore now that my roommates have warmed up to him. He bounces from room/ companion to room/ companion as we have to leave for work responsibilities or what have you.

 The plan is to renew the lease at this place one more time, then move to the outskirts so that I can rent a place with a fenced in yard for him to play in and adopt him a friend. We spend a lot of time over at a coworker's place right now. He has a large fenced in backyard and a lab mix that is about the same size. They play really well together. Dexter is the most at ease when he has that other dog around. It has been over there were he completely relaxes that I have been able to make the most progress with him training wise.

Rubes is definitely the nickname of choice. Trying to stick to Ruby till she gets her name figured out. I will be doing some pre training for a few weeks, then sending her to a buddy's house to get her schooling. I got her from a guy that runs a guide service south of KC who's dog had more pups in her litter than what he wanted to keep.

Normally the "rain" here is just mist that has no effect on anyone except making the already crap drivers shittier.  But it's been real rain since mid-day yesterday.  I've learned Payton hates being out in it, yet hates more staying under an umbrella that would keep her out of the rain.  It looks like her plan is to take a 3-day break from crap'n.

I think if it comes to a head, she'll do it.  She's been OK running out there and pissing relatively quickly and sprinting back to the door. 

If she wasn't so exclusive about her toilets, she'd be able to go almost under or at least right near and awning on the front of the building where there's a bunch of tree cutouts almost built for dogshit'n I assume, as they have city-provided shitbags and receptacles build in.

Bought Payton a #longbone (sans steak) last night.  The manufacturer calls it a meaty mammoth bone (shout to Tramaine).  It's like the regular bones she likes but 3x the size.  On the regular bones, she gets after them pretty hard and I feel like I need to take it back before she tries to eat the whole thing.  I give it back to her day after day until she's chewed it down to fragments she's not interested in anymore.

So my thought was that with the longbone, she'd realize there's no chance she could eat the whole thing and just eat a reasonable amount, and come back to it later w/o me having to repossess it a bunch of times.  Should that work?  Will the size of this thing be problematic, or is it just more of a good thing?

Dexter doesn't have much of a chewing instinct. He does have that bite and rip/ shake instinct down though. We were playing tug of war last night with his rope toy. Once he started to tire, I let him have control of the toy. He went to shake the rope and smacked himself in the forehead with the knotted end that wasn't in his mouth. I got the "wtf, man?" look, he dropped the rope, and walked out of the living room to go lay down in my bed. It was sad and adorable at the same time.

This story is related to the #longbone above. I wish I could find more toys for him to play with. The only things he shows interest in the majority of the time are bully sticks and stuffed animals.


He has stopped the car-peeing for now. I purchased a different enzyme based cleaner than what I was using and I think that got rid of his previous pee smells. He seems to be enjoying car rides more now, as well. I think he's stopped associating them with being left at the shelter and now thinks of them as what happens before he gets to go play with his friend.

Payton isn't into toys either, at least not as they're to be used.  She doesn't do the bite/pull thing at all; all those toys are worthless other than for things to chew on.  She chews on the parts humans are to hold because they're easier to mouf grip.  She doesn't fetch for crap, but likes playing with fetching dogs and being a linebacker when the other dog tries to take the ball back to their human.

So far, I like what I'm seeing from her and this longbone.

I think she's still a little freaked by the mammoth-ness.  Instead of propping it up with her hands and biting the top like she does regular bones, she's still keeping her body as far from it as possible while chewing it up.

This was when I put it down.  She's inched a little closer, but is still both aggressively chewing it and keeping her distance now.

Dexter did not fetch at all for a while either. I had to coach him up. I started with a stuffed squirrel that he liked. I would take if from him and throw it, wait for him to come back to the couch, steal the squirrel back, get him excited about it, and throw it again. We did that for a while until he started bringing the toy back to me. Once he figured out the return part of it, we moved outdoors and started the process over with a nylon mesh frisbee toy designed for dogs. Fetch is one of his favorite activities now. It's one of my favorites too because he's athletic as crap but still uncoordinated.

I haven't found anything she likes to keep in her mouth or really anywhere on her for long enough to warrant going to get it if I take it and throw it.  For a little bit, the squeaky football worked, but she lost interest in the ball entirely after a couple days.  Also, her instinct when she gets possession of anything from anywhere/one is to take it back to her bed, not back to where it came from.

Dexter did that too when I started trying to teach him fetch. I just followed him to his bed and played tug of war for a bit. I'd wait for him to get worked up a bit while playing tug of war, take possession of the toy from him, toss, and repeat. Once he learned that he might as well bring me the toy, we switched to playing fetch with designated toys. I keep his fetch toys in a closet now and he goes berserk whenever he sees you pull one out.

Sorry to hear it, Dax. Our childhood pup, a golden, died on his own under a shade tree while the vet was on the way. He used to lay by our backdoor and look out at the pasture while dug a proper grave for him. Was tough, but I was glad he went on his own. Happened again many years later with a giant yellow lab. Maybe we wait too long?

Anyway thoughts and prayers. I hope you and yours heal soon.

My prospective dog sitter for schemePAK flaked so I probably have to pay someone/thing.  Here's the prospective hotel-ish places:

http://www.barkinglounge.com/dog-boarding-kennel
http://www.citydogclub.com/services/dog-boarding.html
http://www.downtowndoglounge.com/pet-boarding.htm
http://www.woofplayandstayseattle.com/services.html

Then there's this thing that has people that'll put the dogs up in their own place.

https://www.rover.com/seattle--wa--dog-boarding/

What's better?  That last option would have her in the situation closest to normal and I assume she'd have way more attention paid to her than at a place hosting dozens of dogs, but who tf are these people that I'd be leaving her with?

Post by: Trim on February 14, 2017, 03:55:16 PM
When I was shopping for a relatively portable crate that could be folded up and used just for things around town, I'd hoped to find one that would also be acceptable for flights.  The shop lady told me for flights that it has to be a hard case and to just buy one off craigslist when the time came, as people buy them for a single-use situation and then sell them off.  Then as we were talking about dogs on flights in general, she recommended some potion I can't remember the name of that she said was like liquid weed for dogs.

If you got the right person, a person would be better. But getting the right person might be tricky so you are going to get more consistent results choosing a hotel. Also, once you chose one, you should stick with the same place (unless it is terrible) so she gets used to the place and people for future trips.

I don't plan to do this often.  I'm gonna try my best to find the best of shitty options for her to fly with me direct to FattyFest, and even if I can't, I'll probably have my preferred known people that can take her in then. 

So as I'm an excellent Judge, I think I'm gonna try to pick one of those people from the rover thing based on their appearance and self-marketing.  Higher ceiling for Payton's enjoyment and almost certainly will produce better #coverage here of however it plays out.

She seems to hate the "surf & turf" flavor of the artisan dog food.  I'm used to her taking a day off of eating about every 10 days now for whatever reason and then eating double the next day, but even when she's not on that off-day and if she's not on her catch-up day, if the surf & turf's in the bowl, she just picks at it and eats 1/2 at best.  It's weird b/c I love human artisan surf & turf myself.

I've been trying to get rid of the last of the surf & turf by putting out about 40% s&t and 60% flavor she craves.  Today, she was plugging away on it alright and came over for her dessert reward, and I saw she'd left about 10% of the meal in the bowl, all s&t.  No dessert!

Dogsitter seems to have worked out well.  Payton was super happy when she saw me, but not like she'd been freed from a prison.  They even kept her a little bit after I could've picked her up to give her the walk and dinner she'd been due for.  From the pics, it still looks like these people that are really good w/dogs somehow thought the harness stays on her permanently, but that's the only neg I've seen.  She smells better; not sure if they did some kind of dry wash or it's just from being around a cosmetology person for 3 days.

I'll probably do that again next time.  I like being able to just give them all the stuff and a short tips list and them being as flexible as I am w/her, vs. having to portion out meals for a kennel and her being on their schedule.

She's back in bed here gnawing on her #longbone right now.

I've learned that on days when she's being weird about her regular dog food, she needs an appetizer like a pig ear or something, after which she promptly eats her food.  I'd initially thought it would be bad to give her treats first, like you wouldn't let a kid have dessert first.

I don't remember if I posted months ago about when Payton had already become a VIP at the bar and some loony lady started chirping at me about how bad it was for her to be in there and then after I dismissed her, complained to the bartenders who told her to shut up.  Either way, I think the same lady and her friend had the exact same conversations tonight with the same results.  What on earth would possess someone to do that, twice?
Title: Re: Dogs

Title: Re: Dogs
Post by: Trim on April 09, 2017, 09:52:15 AM
Bad for the dog.  Both conversations with me, to the extent I can remember the earlier one and if it was the same nutjob, ended with her listing her thoughts on the dog and saying "just saying" and me responding to say it to someone else.  She'd then say them to the bartenders who told her the bar was Payton's spot and was staying, and she cashed out.

Title: Re: Dogs
Post by: Trim on April 09, 2017, 10:20:16 PM
She'll be fine so long as she cooperates with eating and taking all these pills they gave me.  Ended up cheaper than the estimate and just shy of $300.

She and one of her dog friends are out in the courtyard turf playing, and some other lady I see was walking to my building's door with her dog that she always keeps leashed while it stares at the fun dogs playing.  She was saying she doesn't think her dog can be trusted to play and didn't want to try with all of them leashed b/c she was late for work.  Then she realized she'd locked herself out (I'd had to let her in once in the past, when her roommate had their dog leashed up far away), so I go to let her in.  I forgot Payton was off-leash playing and I see Payton's running over to me.  The lady couldn't keep her cujo under control and they start going at it.  When we finally got 'em separated, my friends saw Payton had blood on her tongue, and then that it was from licking a cut above her mouth on the right side.  She seemed fine, but after I cleaned her up and then checked 10 minutes later, it was still bleeding so I took her to the ER vet just to be safe.

They found it was just the one puncture on the outside; it didn't go through to the inside of her mouth.  There was an abrasion close by.  They gave me some painkiller pills and a week of antibiotics that were supposed to start tonight, but always on a full meal.  She looks like she's gonna be KO'd for the night already though so it'll have to start tomorrow.  Hope she'll be hungry.

She isn't missing a beat, other than the medicine making her a little drunk-appearing when wandering around.  No aversion to dogs big or small either, but the doc told me to restrict her from playing hard until the hole's all healed up.  It already looks quite a bit better.

I've been having pretty good luck w/her eating and drinking well, putting the stuff in a mod'd bowl by her bed if necessary, and having her take down the antibiotics by sticking them in a meatball.  Not much success w/the painkillers, but she doesn't seem to be having any pain to kill.  The bottle says to give up to 3 doses daily as needed.  How tf would I know if she needs them?

She doesn't need them. Also if the vet gave her Tramadol (sp?) It's pretty much worthless. All it will do is make her lethargic. If she is eating and drinking now she is fine and I would toss the BS meds.
Title: Re: Dogs
Post by: Trim on April 10, 2017, 03:55:32 PM
You mean toss just the painkillers (it's tramadol), not the antibiotics too, right?  Vet said that even if she seems great to finish those out to be certain there's no infection or anything even if the wound is all healed up on the outside.

D-rew's the one who's all intrigued by taking dog drugs, right?  Make the extra tramadols a FattyFest auction item?
Title: Re: Dogs

give the full course of antibiotics.  don't give the painkillers.

Title: Re: Dogs
Post by: Gooch on April 10, 2017, 04:02:25 PM
Only toss the tramadol. As for recreational use of said tramadol good luck with that. All it will do is make you mildly sleepy. My dog took those for about 5 years. They are very pud and not an opioid. I use to get them from Walgreens by the 500 count at a time.

One time my Ike dog cut open his chest about 5 inches on a barbed wire fence.  I stapled him shut myself with no painkillers.  He winced with every staple but laid still.  I actually have done that a few times with him but only once was it that big.

:thumbs:  She's gonna hate those rough ridin' meatballs by the end of the week.

As expected, it got problematic towards the end of the week.  Even normally, about once a week or so, she doesn't eat out of her bowls.  Don't know if she's attempting a fasting diet or just gets sick of eating there or what, but I knew it would throw a wrinkle into giving her an antibiotic 2x/day on a full stomach.  Last Thursday, she wouldn't eat out of the bowl, so I gave her little scoops of food right on her bed and she ate it all, then ate the antibiotic-filled meatball.  Friday, no eating, and I didn't want to get her in a habit of eating off her bed, but she took the meatballs and I loaded her up w/treats to get her stomach full.  Saturday morning, she was having nothing of anything, no food, no antibiotic.  Took her to a dog party and she was so fired up she forgot and threw down an antibiotic meatball.  Saturday night and Sunday morning, nothing.  Those were to be the last 2.  Tried peanut butter, chicken, etc.  No dice.  Called the ER vet who said to bring her up.  ER vet got her to take the antibiotic in a second in peanut butter and confirmed Payton had either figured me out or I had a poker tell.  Monday morning, no luck, got the bartender to give it to her no problem.  All done.  And she trusts me again w/meatballs that aren't filled w/drugs.

That last ER vet also gave me one of these to try on that Monday, which seemed crazy.  If the dog didn't trust me with delicious meatballs and chicken, how tf was she going to allow me to jam this thing in her mouf.  I was pretty jazzed when it didn't come to that after going to the bar.

I'd tried that too, but didn't know about throat massaging.  Not sure that would've worked anyway.  She's pretty stubborn.  I'm satisfied going forward having the neighborhood take turns giving her the pills after she's figured me out.

Sometime overnight, she got hold of a little bottle of dog ear cleaner I got last Friday, and chewed the bottle top off.  It looks and smells like most of the contents didn't go in her but all over her and threw her bed and soaked all the way to the floor, as she slept in the discharge.  I'd guess she might've tasted it and quickly thought better of it.

Ingredients: Deionized water, propylene glycol, Aloe Vera gel, SD alcohol 40, lactic acid, glycerin, dioctyl sodium sulfosuccinate, salicylic acid, fragrance, benzoic acid, benzyl alcohol

Thoughts?  Regular vet doesn't open for another hour+.
