Choosing the Right Dog > Large Breed Medium Energy?
Olivia

I'm looking for a large breed dog that's medium energy-wise and intelligent. Some breed profiling places say that a Rott or a Dobie fit the bill, but when I asked about people's experiences with the breed and how much exercise they needed I got answers about how HIGH energy they are. Any clarification or tips on breeds to look into would be awesome!

Thanks for the tip! We just got a Fresh and Easy a couple months ago, so I'll check it out, and thanks for the heads up on that guy that sounds like a great idea!

Thanks, I found some great deals on chicken and everyone gobbled that down! smile Tonight was their first meal of beef and everything seems to be going really well. My next question: where do you buy non-poultry meat? I got three types of beef cuts to see what went over best, though they will eat it all I'm sure! I got ones that were cut into steak-like pieces, ones that were much thicker than steaks and had some silvery streaks in it, and finally a huge slab of a piece that was very tough. For the future, is this what I should get for their boneless meals?

Thanks guys! The video was really helpful, I realize what I've been doing wrong now. I was doing a constant motion correction/reward instead of stopping and then correcting/rewarding. Thanks!

Hi, I have two chihuahuas that are very bad on leash and while it's not that big of a deal since they're so small, I would like to train them to be good loose leash walkers. I'm looking into the freedom and walk-in-sync harnesses. Could you help me by either recommending one (or another harness) or discuss how they differ?

I know on all diets any being can become overweight. However, I have two chihuahuas who just started going full prey model raw and 2 oz a day (they're not the small chihuahuas either, both at 6 pounds looking healthily) doesn't seem enough for them. Am I being too sensitive and that's all they need or should I give them big meals and allow them to eat what they want and save the rest for later? Also, how on earth are you supposed to give them correct portion sizes if I can't just hand them a drumstick? Most of the drumsticks I find are over 2 oz. They're on chicken right now and once they settle in variety will be added. I have a weigher, but I'm still confused when people give whole birds to their dogs (even small ones) and I can't even give a full drumstick.

Service & Therapy Dogs > Which Side?

These are all great responses! I think I'll train the left side much like others train their right side. So heel would mean my right side (so my current dogs don't have their worlds completely uprooted!) and left side would me, well, my left side. I'm glad I won't be breaking some unsung rule of training!

Service & Therapy Dogs > The Talk with your Family?

How do/did you bring up the subject of choosing to use a service dog with your family? At this point, my immediate family knows about my mental issues, but not that I plan on using a service dog to help me. I don't want to blindside them or give them the wrong impression. Can anyone share their experience and things to do/avoid? Much appreciated.
