Re: Wont stop BITING!

I also agree with Victory. I am somewhat going through the same situation with bite inhibition. Matilda is 5 months old and it seems like her evenings are her rowdiest. She is like clock work everynight she starts in about 7:30 just being a little terror wanting to get on you and bite, bite, bite. W...

Re: Home Alone Training

I don't know that it is reasonable to expect a 4 month old in a crate with water to hold it all day. Perfect case scenerio would to be able to have someone let him out for a potty break during the day. Chows want to be with there owner as much as they can especially when there young, it helps with t...

Re: New Neutered 10 month - what to do?

Tucker is a good lucking boy. Make sure you take him if not already to your own vet to have him checked out. He shouldn't be having coughing attacks; nor should he be weak. Most definately he should be able to jump up on the couch (with your permission of course!). Tucker is 10 months old he should ...

Re: Thoughts for the evening: Goodbye old friend, Hello new

Definately contact your breeder to make sure everything went allright. I don't see a problem with checking in and possibly asking for a photo of your new pup.... That only assures you that yes your pup is doing fine and lets you get to see her for the first time. I would also expect updates on her f...

Re: house train

Please take the time to let your Chow Chow become a part of your family and stay inside the house with the rest o...

Not to mention the horrible gas that went with it. I mean she was only receiving maybe less then a 1/4 cu...

Re: Nothing vet can do, can anyone suggest anything

Did the vet do any x-rays or other testing on Albertz to determine why she was in pain? I know at one point my chow chow of 13 years when her hind legs starting hurting and you could obviously tell she was in pain they gave her an anti-inflammatory and it really seemed to help tremendously. We lost ...

I understand why Nikki would sulk and give you a sad look, I imagine it can't feel good to have to wear a collar with a hotspot. You might want to reconsider this.

Re: Who Took My Sweet Chow and Replaced Him with THIS??

It sounds like there might be to much caos in the house right know. With the loss of your other dog, Cricket just might need to have his situations a little less stressful for the time being. I definately would consider waiting on getting another puppy right know.

This is absolutely rediculous that a vet tech would refuse to give a medicine to a sick dog. Are you kidding me I would be devastated also. I'm sure he was "grumpy" he was sick. I'm grumpy when I'm sick. l actually would call around and speak with a vet himself to see if it would be a good...
