    conformation with Atlas

    Hi everyone! I am interested in doing confirmation with Atlas. He is such a beautiful reverse brindle. We did get his ears cropped and it looks wonderful on him! I'll post pictures as soon as I can. He is almost 1 year old (Nov 11) and I'm wondering where would I begin? I haven't been here...

    marking his area?

    Buster is almost a year old (Nov 11 is his birthday) and is still in tact (we are wanting to health test and show him). He never began "marking" until one day a friend brought their dog over, and he marked our sofa. I immediately washed the area on the sofa very well, but since then, Buster...

    Thinking of starting Raw...

    It really isn't that difficult. I think we make it more difficult than it needs to be ;) I was also apprehensive about the bones. But now I have great pleasure watching them eat raw. A sense of I'm doing all I can for them. Honestly, the bones aren't bad at all. New things are always the...

    deer antlers

    It is so tempting to just get them off the shelf (don't ask LOL) and have Mike cut them up. I really want to, but am afraid to also.

    deer antlers

    I know this topic has been discussed before, but haven't seen an answer to my question. Is it possible to have antlers too long to give to the dogs for a chewie? Mike has antlers that are pretty old. Over 10 years old. Never treated with anything, other than dust LOL. Would these be ok to...

    Thinking of starting Raw...

    I was the same way when I started feeding Tyson raw 3 long years ago LOL. It really isn't as difficult as you think. Start by offering him chicken leg quarters. You feed 2-3% of their ideal ADULT body weight. So if you figure he's going to weigh 70#, offer between 14oz and 21oz per day. You...

    coughing

    Yes, he drinks a tons and pee's even more on prednisone. LOL When Tyson was a pup, he had to take it and same thing. I really don't like giving it to them as it affects the thyroid gland (I absolutely hate steroids for humans or dogs). He takes his last pill of it tomorrow. When I give him...

    totw and mange, runny poo!!

    Atlas is thin in the sense of just being a skinny boxer. No ribs visible, but not in the fat aspect either. Just the way he looks. He has tons of energy (he just did 3 laps around the house outside in the snow LOL) and eats. Just having problems with poo and him and Buster being hungry. Buster...

    runny poo

    The thing that has me confused is he had been on raw since he was 6 weeks old, no problem. Then at about 10 weeks, he was given I believe quite a few treats one day, and it's been down hill since. Step DD did it when I was at work. I was furious!! Since that day, his stomach has been on touchy...

    totw and mange, runny poo!!

    I was thinking 3 cups was a lot, but I when you said about it not being that much, it made me realize it really wasn't. I will try increasing it starting tomorrow morning. I just hope it doesn't give Atlas the poo's :(

    totw and mange, runny poo!!

    Just an update, and more questions LOL. Atlas is doing better, no coughing, mange is under control (no spreading since it began). He is doing well (actually really well) with TOTW lamb with 1 tsp pumpkin. He is being fed 2 times a day, 1 cup each time. We are now starting to give him a bit of...

    runny poo

    Ok, is it possible that some dogs just can't eat raw? He was doing better on the TOTW lamb, but of course I had to try the raw again. Yesterday I fed him his usual breakfast (7am, 1c. kibble w/1tsp pumpkin) and for supper, he got a chicken drumstick. I did forget to take the skin off, my bad...
