crazy old woman who actually wants a reason to go for walks, hikes, and bike rides... to dote on a little one... and have a pal willing to jump in the car and go for a ride...
It's hard to leave your dog(s) in a boarding facility (and it can be expensive), but it might be the best option for your situation, given the specific issues. You just want the best for your pups. Totally understandable. I'm not close enough to offer assistance, but you might consider some other (potential) local resources:
- Vetarinarians (may be willing to take them 'home' at night )
- Professional Pet Sitters (pets stay home, sitters come in and out through the day, some even stay at your home while you are gone)
- Breeder (contact your dogs breeder and see if they could assist you)
- Friends (someone who is familiar with the dogs)
If you have any questions about training your leash chewing escape artist, or the dog aggressive female, please feel free to ask. We might not be able to give you a quick fix, but I'm certain that we can relate what our experiences have been in resolving similar behaviors.
@redial said in Brown rice versus White rice:
Instead of rice, try barley.
hmmm.... I don't usually have barley in the pantry, but I'll give it a go.
Quick follow up: I made barley for the first time tonight... well, technically I made a Homemade Vegetable Barley Soup. The entire family chowed down and then doodle passed out for the night. I'm sure we will have Barley again (and I'm not just saying that because there's easily 4 servings left).
you are likely to be building up problems for the poor girl
A number of comments on this thread indicate that spaying is harmful later in life. Can anyone explain this?
- What happens if you spay too soon?
- What happens if you spay at an older age (say, 18 months)?
