    Just had a light bulb moment "christmas"

    Keep cotton balls handy... I learned on Boxerworld many years ago to keep "real" cotton balls (not the synthetic kind)handy at Christmas time ... If your animal accidently ingests glass ball pieces....dip real cotton balls in milk and feed them to them... it's supposed to coat the pieces as...

    One Year Ago - Today...... :(

    Thanks for sharing... It's so hard to loose a beloved pet. I still cry over my 3 boxers who have passed but am filled with joy over my 2 current "babies". Your tribute was wonderful...made me cry... thinking of my own who Ill always miss so much.

    The strangest thing happened....

    I feel for you... After I lost Samson - who was my best bud - I could literally "feel" him over my shoulder sometimes. I'd tell people that and they'd think I lost my mind but Sam and I had a very strong bond/connection and for a long time I could feel him with me.

    Soft feet...won't pee in the yard...

    Thanks... Michele, yes, we've been going on walks and going thru the desert on paths so that he gets used to different types of terrain. I've thought about stepping stones out to the designated area... maybe I'll get some this weekend.

    Too much "fighting" between puppies?

    I've had same issue... I have a 1 yr old female and just rescued a 1 1/2 yr old male. When he first came into the house all they did was rough-house play... growling, rolling, gnawing on each others necks, etc. It was cute til I noticed my female's (who was the primary instigator here) neck...

    Soft feet...won't pee in the yard...

    Sam is about 1 1/2 yrs old and we rescued him about 3 weeks ago. He seems to pretty much get the drift on not peeing/poopn in the house at this point, but he refuses to walk on the little gravel/rocks that our yard is landscaped with to potty in the yard. He pees all over my patio...lifting...

    Re-socialiizing an old boy?

    A Halloween Birthday! Awww...Happy Birthday tomorrow Baxter! My "Bagheera" who passed away last November...was born on Halloween too. She died last year 2 weeks after her 10th birthday. She, too, became agressive in her older years and even at 10 yrs old she had the energy of a pup! (She...

    Bell training...

    Easy Peasy... Okay..so I have a kindergardener and we say easy peasy... :) Bell training is a snap! I had Gabby ringing it in less than 15 mins. It's saved me many a pottied kitchen floor! I tied craft bells onto a ribbon and taught Gabby with treats and a clicker... similar to what...

    Pulling during walks - Help

    Get a GENTLE LEADER! They work WONDERS! I've had them for all my boxers over the years. My obedience trainer turned me onto them. It's a collar that goes around the neck and a little strap that goes over the nose/under the chin area and you hook your leash to the ring under the chin area...

    Should I chance it yet?

    I'd try it... With Gabby ... I just kinda blocked her in to the area next to my bed. I too, could hear her when she woke up by the shaking and stretching and I'd jump up and take her out. Maybe you could move the bean bag chair into your room and block him in an area or put a long leash on...

    Treadmill Training

    Great idea! I watch the Dog Whisperer too (I'm addicted, shhhh!) and I wondered if I could get my dogs to walk on my treadmill. I just don't know if they'd have the attention span to do it for any length of time. I'm wondering what others have to say about it... if they've given it a try!

    just brought home our first rescue/advice please!

    I just rescued also... We brought Sam (1 1/2 yr old male) home 3 weeks ago... and we had a year old female ...Gabby... that we've had since she was 9 wks old. We let the dogs play immediately but the rough housing got so intense that the sides of Gabby's neck were raw and bleeding. The vet...

    Switching to Wellness CORE

    I just bought my first bag of Wellness CORE Original today at Petco. After reading through this forum and researching I realized I was feeding such a poor grade of food! I always prided myself in going with "premium"...HA! Little did I know that what pet stores consider "premium" is not so...

    Sam's Story

    Samson joined our family 3 weeks ago! We had a 1 yr. old female "Gabby" that we had gotten as a pup and felt like she needed a playmate. We've had Boxers for years and always had 2. I had found out that Gabby's littermate was available thru the breeder and was going to get him when a friend of...
