Happy hit the nail on the head... ride through it. They don't last forever... though the larger the breed the longer they tend to last.

Mali is trained to heel on both left and right side. I use the word “heel” for the left and “right side” for heeling on the right side. As of late she has mostly been on my right side as I have a torn labrum in my left shoulder.

Button is so far only learning left side, but will learn both sides as well, when

I put Button in his crate when he is left at home. There is nothing the matter with putting them in the bathroom when you are gone, it sounds like you make sure they are quite comfortable.

Small Dogs > Am I Being Paranoid?

I have a toy dog a Papillion and I also have 4 dogs that are all over 100 pounds. I would not bring any of them to a dog park. I learned a long time ago before I got my Papillion it is not safe for dos at dog parks when I just had my big girls, you can never trust what kind of dog might come into the park. The size of a dog has little to do with how stable, socialized or trained it is. It also has nothing to do with what its owner is like.

Instead I take my pack of dogs to a doggie day camp, where in order to go all the dogs have been tested for temperament before they can join the group. They all have to be up on their shots be and be on some kind of flea treatment. Dogs that are in heat are not welcome and neither are dogs that live in a home with dogs that are in heat until the cycle is over.

If the weather gets to hot or cold there is an inside facility where they can play for part of the day and there is fresh water for both playing in and drinking. They are supervised at all times… by trained professionals.

At doggie day camp they make friends and as an extension of day camp we make play dates with their friends for other adventures at parks, hikes, and home visits. For my larger girls there have become more play dates and less doggie day camp since they have made so many friends. My Papillion has only been at doggie day camp for a month now… but has earned the name Mr. Popular.

You can order pure pumpkin on line and have it shipped to you. Other than that the vet will have something they can give you to help slow the problem and will possibly also give the pup some liquids sub-Q if need be. You can try chicken broth and rice too.

Service & Therapy Dogs > How do you address your service dog

Just recently I was in Walmart with Mali and we were walking in a large group of people, Mali has an affinity for infants. Across the crowd a baby started to cry, she lifted her head to try and see through the crowd and why the baby was crying. I told her to mind her business. A man we were passing got very angry with me because he was sure I had told him to mind his business. No amount of talking could sooth him so I told him sorry and walked off.

Raw Food Diet > heartworm preventative...yes or no?

I give my girls Ivomec for heart worms and a dewormer I get from my vet as well to take care of the other worms such as whip worm.

In order to use Ivomec your vet has to tell you how much to give your dog according to its weight and your dog can not be a collie or part collie. If it is part collie there is a quick DNA test that can be done to see if it carried the gene that would make it allergic to Ivomec.

Ivomec costs nothing compared to other heart worm medication and is the main ingredient in all of them. The other wormer I get costs very little as well. I have 4 giant breed girls and pay in a year as much for all four what I would pay in a month if I went the other route.

When my dogs have loose stools I always add pure canned pumpkin to their diet.

You could also use a dog wheel for him as a way to burn off energy. We plan to make one for Button when he is older.
