    125 Dog to be Euth'ed Tomorrow, Help Needed!

    OMG! Wish I had checked in sooner. In case there is still anything I can do please let me know. My home is full right now so I really couldn't foster but I am in Myrtle Beach SC, only about 3 hours from Charlotte and could possibly transport if needed. Just wanted to offer if needed.
  3. I don't know what your lay out is like but this is just a thought if the chicken wire she went through is the side of the run and she sqeezed out on the ground - get some QuickCrete from Lowe's or a Home Depot or such. It's pretty darn cheap and you can mix it and take a showvel or something a dig a trench along the side of the run, poor in the concrete and push the chicken wire into it so it's not loose. If the chicken wire is on top - I know some dogs climb up and push it open so I thought I'd share this idea too. Get slip ties. Basically big trash ties - the plastic kind not the twisty kind. Pretty cheap too. YOu can attach the chicken wire to the top of the kennel walls so she can't get out that way. Like I said I don't know how your set up is so these are just thoughts, hope it helps! Oh, if you do tie her out until you get the fence fixed make sure she is no where near the other one. Some people think of these things and others don't so I thought I'd share that too. Once we had a GSD and a Husky/GSD mix and a big 20X20 fence for them when we were not home. Well, they dug a huge hole out of the bottom. This was on like a Wednesday. My husband at that time worked in concrete and knew they had a job that Sat and would have enough extra concrete to pour a slab under that fence so we put them on leads in the fence for the rest of the week where they could not reach each other. While we were at work the little girl, about 12 or 13, next door came over and decided they needed to be closer so she moved their leads so they were side by side. We came home to our Husky mix dead with the GSD's lead wrapped around his neck. So sad! Just thought I would share our sad story. Good luck with your fence!

    Submissive P'r

    We had this problem with our new foster pup and I know how bad you can feel when you just get down steam cleaning and then here it goes again. Is the dog crated at all? Pru always peed a little when we came home or whenever we took her anywhere and anyone came up to her. So when we came home we would leave her in the crate for about 5 minutes, helped stop her from being over excited all at once - us coming home and being let out of the crate at the same time. At least that way too if she does piddle a little it would be on the towel in her crate and not on my carpet - much easier to throw the towel in the washer! Also, we take her all kinds of new places as much as we can and let people come up and pet her. She used to pee as soon as someone came near here and now she doesn't. We also started her in class where she is learning more obidence and working on Agility which is great for building confidence. Since we started that class with Agility and have been taking her to playtime also at our trainers she has barely peed at all - submissively anyway! Agility is a great confidence builder. Well, that's all I have for ya! Good luck!

    Belgian Malinios looking for forever homes!

    What beautiful dogs! Love Cay and Lucy! Wish I could help but we are full right now. If there is need for transport with Cay going southward please let me know. I am in SC but will be heading to Lynchburg Va Labor Day weekend and could help if the need arises with transport coming back this way. I know that is a long shot, just wanted to throw it out just in case. Hope they have better luck finding those guys a home. Beautiful dogs!

    We have a similar add here that runs all the time. Reminds me of the Chihuahua breeder here that decided he wanted to get out of breeding Chihuahuas. decided to get rid of over 50 chihuahua's in one week. Whoever didn't find a home went to the shelter. Some people should be euthinized!

    Pit training

    Sensation harness is great, just make sure you get one that will be nice and snug on him. And the treats are great!

    How sweet!

    Wish mine would sleep on the floor - big huge fluffy beds and they don't care. They have to be up my butt in the bed. Piper snuggles with Daddy and Leo lays on me. He is getting so big though we are thinking about trying to get at least him to start sleeping on the love seat at the end of the bed, hope it works! Getting tired of waking up falling out of the big king size bed cause Leo or Piper had to stretch their big butt out! lol Silly puppers!
  9. One of the other people in our play group has a Laberdoodle that they are teaching to get a beer out of the fridge and bring it to them! She can now open the fridge door but the can kept sliding when she went to grab it so now they hold it with one finger until she masters it and then she trots back to the living room with it in her mouth! We were working with Piper on opening doors, like the fridge and stuff. First we started with just playing tug and then getting her to hold something in her mouth and not tugging until we say so, then we would put a towel or something on the handle to the fridge and give it to her - "Take" and then "Tug" until the door opened. She was so proud of herself. But I don't drink beer and we decided against teaching her anymore cause our other dog would be learning from her and then he would eat anything he could get in his mouth before we caught him!

    Look at all these breed bans!! Hard to believe

    Where is this place? I need to check around here for the heck of it and see what the camp grounds say. What a load of crap. Basically these people just don't want dogs running around at all. If that is the case, just say We Don't Allow Dogs and be done with it. Pru would be kicked out completely - GSD/Pit mix, and then Piper - Pit Bull but Leo - American Bulldog could stay. Funny thing is he is not people aggressive at all but can tend to be a bit leash aggressive to other dogs sometimes, the other 2 are not at all. They should consider the dog and not the breed or say No Dogs period and get what they are really going for.

    More PETA Cr**

    Another wonderful view from Peta members - Let's save the lives of all animals so they can live wihtout us terrible humans - But - first let's kill all of the Pit Bulls, or at least weed them out by doing free spay / neuters on Pit Bulls - to control the population of them so they will eventually all die out. What a great point of view, so happy there are so many card carring members to support that cause, Lord knows we want the cows and deer to be happy and the chickens to live in piece but all the Pit Bulls can die, what the hell kind of logic is that? I have read this before on a Peta site and have been told this by Peta members and the Peta member running the little van that does the spay / neuter in Chesapeake Va said this flat out and that it was Peta' way to deal with such terrible creatures. Bunch of crap.

    bitting a dogs ear?

    Ok, sorry, but lmao - just picturing someone doing this at the local park! Not that it's a funny thing to do, but just the visual. Pick the puppy up and bite it! Oh my! :drinking:

    Hand them to the Husband, isn't that what your supposed to do?? I hand them over and they always end up on the kitchen counter all nice and clean! Works for me! Ok, he uses dish soap, just a little, and his hands and a small scrub brush if needed.

    is this ok punishment method

    What we were told by pur trainer when Piper would nibble on us etc when she was still a pup was that is was ok to let her play just not bite down, she had to learn the difference. When she would get too rough we would squeel like a little puppy, she had heard these sounds from other pups in her litter and seemed to know what it meant. She knows a squeeel and has no clue what Ow! means. This actually worked great for her. If she did continue to bite down playing too rough then she went for about 2 minutes of time out. But the best thing we did for this was put her in playtime once a week. Our trainer has Little Dog playtime and pn another night Big Dog playtime where dogs around the same size can be very closely monitered with all parents remaining there to watch and him circling the room, well, it's actually outside but it's about the size of a larger living room I guess. Gives the dogs a chance to learn what getting bit when playing feels like and when we would get back home she wouldn't bite on us so much, she was worn out and had gotten in her nibble work out with the other dogs and puppies. They always play with their mouth when playing with each other, it's hard for them to learn to not play with you with their mouth too, playtime helped a lot! Good Luck!

    How dare she.

    Totally agree with raises the dogs with children. I would hate for any child of mine to grow up and not know the joy of having a pet at least. My daughter was raised with our GSD (rest his little sole) and he was so great with her. When she was learning to sit up I couldn't keep him away from her, she would tumble over and he would run to her to push her back up with his big head and then lay behind her so she wouldn't fall again. In the car he would not move his head from her lap, even when she was teething and tried chewing on his ears! He slept under her crib and was so great. He knew when to be gentle. I miss him so much! I hope I am able to have another baby and I think Piper will be great with the baby too! Not my fault that the boss's kids are terrified of his dog! He's really young and jumping and nippie and hasn't had any training, what do you expect.
