    Scared of strange men!

    Hi there! I'm trying to acclimate our rescue (who will be 2 years old this year) to new men, specifically, since he is very reactive towards men at first. The bigger and hairier the man is the worse it gets (who can blame him, right?! haha!) People are always asking to pet him, but I...

    Teaching two boxers to LEAVE the cats ALONE!

    Hi there everyone! Happy holidays!! We've had our newly adopted guy in our house for about 6 months now, and although the cat-chasing antics have diminished slightly - he still will chase if the cats run. He isn't 100% mesmerized by them as he was before (literally I'd have to drag him away...

    Looking for a new food! Grain free, and made in the USA!

    We currently feed Merrick Before Grain varieties to our two boxers (they will be 4 and 2 years old in a few months). Our female seems to tolerate the food pretty good, and they both love it in terms of enjoying meal times - however, our younger guy gets pretty bad gas from it. I'd love to find a...

    3 y/o with a lump under jaw?

    My 3 year old boxer has a lump under her jaw, on one side only, about the size of a golf ball. It is under the skin. Moveable when palpated. Doesn't appear to cause pain but who really knows. It almost feels like when you're sick, and your glands are swollen. Except this is larger, and only on...

    Dog sitter questions...

    So, in short, we finally found a dog sitter that sees clients near us! We've been looking for over a year. She seems great, had a great initial meeting/interview. She came, walked the dogs, was here for over 90 minutes (we had scheduled a 60 minute walk). She left the key where we asked her to...

    Easy-walk harness slipping down too far? red bellies?

    Our easy walks tend to slip down so the dogs (when pulling very hard), can get their feet out of them. This only really happens when they see something really exciting, and we are working on training them not to do this. We feel like we're also constantly retightening the martingale part at the...

    Looking for more ideas regarding leash reactivity - lunging/barking/aggressive...

    Hi there! To keep things on the short side...I have a very leash reactive boxer boy, between 1-2 years old. We adopted him about 3 months ago. He was neutered by the rescue. We have no idea of his history, other than we was an owner surrender. These issues were not apparent at the time we...

    Adult dog biting humans while playing?

    Hi there! We have a new rescue who is a year old. He's been with us for about two months now. We've finished our basic obedience class, and are heading to advanced obedience next week. He is doing excellent with so many things, but one of our issues is play biting. Its almost like an 8 week...

    New rescue..apparently not of fan of golf carts ;)

    Our new rescue (who is in my pic) is a year old. We had him and our three year old boxer girl on our porch while we were working on our golf cart. They had access to the fenced in yard and deck, and could easily see us the whole time. Well, we decided to start up the golf cart and go for a...
