I guess I would be closest to number three since I do a little bit of everything with Noah.

Tricks and agility are taught as positively as I can make it. Some people consider a No Reward Marker as not positive, but I do use it as neutrally as possible.

Obedience commands are taught positively and then proofed with a low-level remote collar. I don't want Noah to ever think he can just ignore a recall command.

I saw The Dog Snobs post this on their Facebook. I can't imagine what that family must be going through.

Just thought I would post a quick update. Took Noah in to the vet today and he suspects a partial tear to the ACL. We're going to try 4 weeks of cold laser therapy and "rest, rest, rest, big bolded underlined REST." Which means Noah's upcoming agility trial is out, along with his agility class, daily runs and pretty much anything that doesn't involve pooping. I am not looking forward to this.

I can't help but notice that on your profile that you list one of the dogs pet peeves as "blowing in her face," which is extremely similar to kissing her on the head. Simple answer: don't do that again.

In the past few months, I've noticed Noah will sometimes limp after going on a run with us. It's not all the time and it's not even too frequent but it is always on the same rear leg every time. I give him a buffered aspirin for a day or so and it seems to go away. Am I being foolish for not doing anything more than this? Am I ignoring something that is likely to be a bigger problem down the road?

Part of me really thinks that I'm not doing enough to condition him or warm him up when we go for runs but he never lags or has any problem keeping up. I suppose a vet visit may be in order any way but I just wanted to get some thoughts from the community in case you all had any sort of experience with limping or leg injuries that you thought might be helpful to me. Thanks in advance.

I really feel like there's a happy medium between feeding your dog nothing but table scraps and giving them some of the healthy stuff we eat. Many fresh, whole foods that people eat are great for dogs so let's not throw the baby out with the bath water. As with everything else, balance is key.

I've never had a dog that needed it but the majority of my grooming clients swear by the stuff. I have spoken to a couple who say it didn't work or stopped working for their dog but almost nothing works for every single dog out there.

Behavior & Training > dog bit me HELP!

I spent a couple years working at a dog daycare and encountered this sort of situation frequently. You're either breaking up a fight between two dogs or separating them from rough play and a third dog will come at you because you're interfering or "joining the fight" or whatever they think you're doing. I'm honestly not 100% sure of the psychology of the situation, but I have seen it happen before. Dogs will also do it to each other. I really don't think you need to put the dog down but it's obviously a situation that needs to be dealt with.
