Interestingly, the two worst pullers were both smallish females. Followed by an oversized male with bad hips who was a moose when you put him on a leash. Most of the dogs we've had think collars are for pulling, but harnesses were not. :-( My husband used to skijor with them, but they turned into saunterers after the first half mile. But the three mentioned above will drag you the entire time they've got a collar on. The older I get the less amusing this is. If I walk them individually it's not as bad, but together each one wants to "win".Ya I bet Huskies have a strong pack mentality and love to pull you around!
We did! They have a great form that's very clear, and she had me go through the form on the phone so that I could ask questions etc. They clearly have been doing this a long time. These guys are pasture raised but grain finished, so they will taste a little different, but not as different as pure pasture raised.Also ask the butcher to make the ground beef to your specs. I used to ask for 90/10
I had one that did that too! His name was Bandit and he eventually had to have all his canine teeth replaced with stainless steel teeth.. Sadly, people were scared of him after that. He was a wonderful dog and unfortunately hip degeneration took him from us a couple years before his time.I knew a German Shepherd who insisted on gnawing on large rocks!

Mine have the front hook harness. It helps, but is definitely not the panacea it's advertised as being. I never had the follow through necessary to train them on gentle leaders. They're leash aggressive (Well, Cooper wasn't - until I got Loki), so I try to go to national forest for off leash, less populated hikes as much as I can.Harness verse collar. For our pup he pulls a lot less when we use the front hook on his harness but the back hook is no holds barred pulling for about a mile before he gets tired. We don't use his collar for walks because he pulls and chokes himself till he can barely breathe.
I give our dogs fish oil sometimes, but not with every meal. They really like the taste. I puncture the gel capsule with a knife and dribble it on the food.Eggs are also good for omegas, aren't they? Is there a cheap-ish form of fish oil etc around? I am sure they would love it as oil rather than in a capsule.
This doesn't *have* to be the case. My dogs do get chopped veggies while we're prepping, and they get pieces of chicken or whatever when we're slicing that up. They never get rewarded for hounding us - but if they calmly sit down a few feet away, they may get something. It seems to work. And they don't get sauces etc. Food manners are my one pet peeve with dogs, and you can tell that it's the one thing I insist on with them.Also, absolutely zero table scraps for either. It's not worth the aftermath later. Also not worth the constant begging, farts, etc. that come with scraps.
Who is being fed here? Some of the dogs I have had really liked the taste of cat sh*t.I give our dogs fish oil sometimes, but not with every meal. They really like the taste. I puncture the gel capsule with a knife and dribble it on the food.
The oil capsules were recommended by the vet for dry skin and allergy-related itching.Who is being fed here? Some of the dogs I have had really liked the taste of cat sh*t.
Not sure of the benefits of either.
Yeah, blech. I swear there was a Dog Whisperer about it.It's actually a thing..coprophagia..my buddy's lab did it..couldn't figure it out..vet said his nutrition was lacking..or at least the dog THOUGHT his nutrition was lacking..
