Excremental extortion

We all know what emotional extortion is (when a loved one scr*ws us over knowing we have to go on loving them anyway), but only us Chow lovers know about excremental extortion, when our Chow has to go desperately but holds it and holds it to make its walks last forever. :_| :wall: :evil: :_| :_| :_|...

Re: Can I leave a chowchow puppy home alone?

I am in the hospital twice a week from 630am-230pm If you have no one to help you, then you can't have a dog right now. No dog could deal with this without going sad or mad. Definitely not a puppy. And no, you can't lock a dog in a crate all day. Imagine what it would be like for a person - and it ...

Re: New owner help

If she's been abused (and it doesn't sound like she's had a very good life so far), it was most likely by a man, so your husband is going to have to be patient. She'lll warm up to him too, eventually. Sounds like she's just scared of men. Many shelter dogs are. It will take a while to fix that. You ...

Re: Advice needed, please! Bathtime woes...

He is beautiful, no wonder you couldn't resist him! :) Dogs aren't usually bathed. You brush the dirt out when it's dried and they'll always look beautiful. I can see that Stewart has beautiful fur, all soft and shiny. :) Brushing their hair regularly is much more important than bathing (which isn't...

Re: Advice needed, please! Bathtime woes...

The bath must have been fairly traumatic for him. With shelter pets, you never know what triggers bad memories. Getting wet might have very unpleasant associations for Stewart. And dryers are very scary for rescues (and some non-rescues). You'll win back his trust, I am sure! Just do what you were d...

Shawn, your posts are very interesting. Loo is allergic to most of the things you listed above. Unfortunately, he is also allergic to rice, so that can't be the main part of his meal either. :( It took me years to find a food he could stomach AND that he would eat (he used to be a very picky eater, ...

Re: Rescuing a Chow Chow

The interview won't be a problem. They just don't want their Chow to end up with a person who uses him to frighten others and trains him to be agressive. Be nice, calm and respectful and you'll be just fine. Tell them you want the dog to give him a great home and make him happy and that you are prep...

OMG he's a typical Chow! :D Loo's just like that. He knows exactly what part of the walk is the going-home part. :D First part he drags me, second part I drag him. Sounds like your friend never really took the time to teach him. He is walking all over you, avoiding your gaze and everything! He think...

Re: Whitby needs to lose some weight

Grandma's coffee cup sounds dainty, so you're probably not overfeeding her. How important are those bones to Whitby? I feel that sometimes it's US who think our dogs need treats, not our dogs. Because of Loo's allergies, I had to stop all treats, and he doesn't miss them. It was harder on me than on...

Re: Whitby needs to lose some weight

How big are those cups? People outside the US don't really know that! Depending on the size of those cups, you might be feeding her a little too much. Is she a small Chow? Do you also feed her treats? If you do, those would be easiest to cut out of her diet. I'm sorry to hear about Whitbys health tr...

Re: cutting nails

Sometimes dogs behave better at the vet's than they would at home, so if you're not afraid of spending a very small sum, you could just have the vet do it. While there, the vet could also check if there is anything the matter with the way she places her paws on the ground, because, like chunkymonkey...

That is so sad! They should at least put the dog to sleep if they are not going to take any steps to make his life better. To live all alone in a cage day in day out - no wonder he is going mad!

Or so I thought! :-) If your Chow keeps having this problem, maybe have the vet check for food allergies. Loo has such a hard time with being a...
