Behavior & Training > Is there anything to the dominant/submissive theory?

Onyx, I agree with you. It does seem that some dogs and some people for that matter are more submissive or more assertive in their personality.

When talking about dominance and submission I think we have to make sure we are talking about personality types. I don't think the old training method ala Cesar is accurate or even helpful, but I do think that dogs, people, horses.....do have personalities that can be more outgoing, introverted, assertive, patient....and the personality would affect the creatures behavior.

Behavior & Training > Thumping with tail for attention.

Tipper is a thumper. When she wants something, wants attention, wants to go out, is begging....she will find something to thump her tail on. If she wants to wake me up she will thump on the dressing table. if she wants in, she will thump on the door.

I used to think is was a fluke, she has a long muscular tail, but I have seen her position herself to make her tail thump. Tipper seems like a silly airhead a lot of the time, but I wonder if she isn't brilliant and is just pretending to be a "simple dog"?

Anyone else have a dog that signals by thumping or some other odd sound or action?

???? I sometimes will run up to a closed door and put my belly up because I know Pip is on the other side. I never fight, and actually seem to look for opportunities to put my belly up. I am not frightened or abused but I sure seem to have a submissive personality. (dogality?)

The glue worked well for me. Talk to your vet about your concerns, also ask if anyone is at the office to monitor the animals overnight. If not, I would insist on taking her home.

Tipper likes carrots. Also some dogs do a lot better on a grain free or at least corn free dog food.

Dog Health > Advise needed on front dew claws

Tipper

The puppy on the- Stairs.

a floppy dew claw isn't the same as removing a solid one. I had a floppy dew claw on one of my front legs. It was removed when I was spayed. I had a couple of stitches and a bandage, but never took a lame step and didn't seem to be in any pain.

As long as your vet is experienced with putting your breed under anesthesia, it should be fine. If you are planning to be neutered the procedures could be done together.

I would think having them removed would be a lot less painful then a sore infected dew claw.

Dog Health > dew claws

I had a floppy loose dew claw on a front leg. Weird, it was removed when I was spayed and I never noticed.

If, on the other hand, the dew claws are attached by bone, it is a bigger deal to remove and should be weighed carefully before going ahead.

I had a floppy one removed when I was spayed. Went well, no problem. Talking to your vet is a good idea. Good luck with the surgery and get well soon.

I had a hanging,no bone, dew claw removed when I was spayed at 6 months. I had a suture and a bandage. No swelling and it was well within a few days.
