Re: Bad behavior of Walter

That's good to know, I'll give that a try. Walter is just about 35lbs (I know, he's a bit light for a Chow but I can't do anything about it :( ) so he should be more manageable than Spartacus.

Re: Bad behavior of Walter

Great. The only reason I don't use a "choker" type of leash is because I read in this very forum not to use one as it does not promote positive reinforcement. So I'm not sure how that argument would go about presenting itself in what you just said. Regarding your rope/leash being close to ...

Re: Bad behavior of Walter

I'm actually doing that all the time but I'm not sure if Walter gets the idea. He only stops pulling when he's tired already and of course that's a natural reaction from anyone.

Re: Cage Size

Can you guys post a pic of your dogs in their respective crates so that I can have an idea of the "right" size?

Re: Bad behavior of Walter

Thanks for the follow-up, I appreciate it. He's close to 2 years old now and he's getting better. I don't have any problems with play biting anymore but he's really a stubborn puller. I already tried using the front-attaching harness and I can control him better with it but then again when you switc...

Re: Cage Size

But are those metal fences also being used as an alternative to cages for grown-up puppies that are not head-butting? :)

Re: Cage Size

Re: Cage Size

I see, thanks for the feedback. I was actually thinking that it would be better if he can stretch his body in the cage (similar to what he is doing when he is outside of it) while he is in it but should that be a concern?

Cage Size

Now that Walter is 1 year and 7 months old, I'm worried that the size of his cage is not enough for him. Here are his current cage pics: http://i.imgur.com/yQez4jx.jpg http://i.imgur.com/xJyuf9J.jpg http://i.imgur.com/RXu1kVF.jpg Can you guys confirm if I need to buy a bigger cage for him? When he's...

Re: How much to feed Walter with Orijen Adult

No problem at all. He's finishing his food now every single time and wants more! So him being sick for 2 days was actually a blessing in disguise. So I was really wondering if I need to feed him more or what? Because he tends to want more nowadays.

Re: How much to feed Walter with Orijen Adult

He was diagnosed as anorexic by the vet and gave him some meds. After taking them for two weeks, he started building up energy and is very excited about his food now! I'm so glad that he seems to be hungry always and yes he wants more after consuming the recommended serving per meal. I don't want gi...

How much to feed Walter with Orijen Adult

So Walter is around 1.5 years now and I decided to switch from Orijen Puppy Large to Orijen Adult. He's 16Kg and based on Orijen's feeding guide he needs around 324Kg when he was eating Puppy Large. But with the Adult, he just needs around 200Kg. That's a lot less and he seems to want more after he ...

Re: Chow shoes

Ok. When he marks he sometimes is close to the thing that he is marking and the urine is splashing towards his body. The reason why I can't go the hose route is because I live in a condo wherein I really don't have access to a readily available hose, unless of course I do a ghetto hose in my bathroo...

Re: Chow shoes

Most of the times my Chow, when outside, doesn't know how to "direct" his pee so he pees all over the place. He always marks everything outside so his feet accidentally steps on his own pee. Rubber shoes would come handy then, right?

Re: Chow shoes

Since I leave in a tropical country, no Winter for us. I was just planning on using shoes so that I won't bother cleaning his paws after a walk. This would save me tons of wet wipes! Would there be any disadvantage at all if I use them only during walks?

Re: Best vacuum

Since I figured that I had to import these vacuums in my country, I couldn't go with the uprights as they're just too expensive to ship out. I was aiming for the Eureka Mighty Mite as I liked that it had a blower port but I hated that it is a bagged version. So I decided so just get a handheld one, ...

Best vacuum

Do you have any idea what is the best vacuum for chow pet hair nowadays? My budget is $150 and below so I don't think an overrated Dyson is within my league. If you think $150 of a budget is pretty low please let me know. Thanks.

Thanks. I'm just being worried because at 14 months my Chow is just around 15.5Kg and as you may have said before that is a little bit on the slim side of Chows (maybe even on the underweight range). Considering that he is a male, can't I do anything about it or does it just really account for famil...

What TOTW variant is best for chows

I'm currently feeding Walter the High Prairie variant of TOTW and was reading through some posts in this forum that chows don't necessarily need a high protein diet. From all the TOTW dog variants, I know that the High Prairie has the most protein. Should I be switching to a new flavor? Which is bes...

Is there any way that the slicker brush will hurt him though? And how long does a daily maintenance go continuously for? Also, what's a high ...
