    I get it, they can be super intimidating, especially the real bulky ones. Sweetest dogs ever, the ones that haven't been ruined by awful asshats.

    Haha, that’s probably why I’m cautious. Most people are ass hats.

    no doubt, we see the worst of them through rescue.
    As far as pits go, i always tell people, the sweetest dog I have seen come through Pixel in my 6 years with them has been a gray and white pit, about a year old.
    Poor thing had been shot in the eye, ended up having to get it surgically removed, and had another round in her shoulder that they just left there.
    I watched this pup sit on the floor of a pet store with an 8 year old girl and just cuddle in her lap for an hour. She had every reason to be a monster with all she had been through, but she wasn't.
    That's what I think about when I consider all the "XYZ breeds are horrible" arguments. All breed restrictions should be banned as a practice.

    Fine point tweezer, spread fur, grab skin closest to head and slowly pull up, the head comes off easy so try to avoid that. Rubbing alcohol or mild soap before and after removal. Get the pup on seresto etc. Good for 8 months, water proof, collar around the neck.

    For future pups that may have the same, ask them to get you a tick key, it makes getting them off easier and there's less chance of pulling off the head. Glad you were able to get them off of him today!

    This is probably hill billy back woods type shit, but when the family dog got ticks once we lit a match, then put it out right away, and put the burnt end of the match stick on the tick and they usually wiggled their way back out. Probably a better way to do it, but it worked for us.

    That's how I knew how to do it, and then I later in life heard that it can make the tick vomit which is apparently bad.

    Just found a tick on my dog who wears one of those seresto collars. He's had it on for at least a month. Found the tick on his leg, but don't think it complete burrowed in yet bc it was easy to pull out.

    This dog is also having crazy discharge from his ear. I'm thinking it's a yeast infection, but it's a really bad one if it is. Setup a vet appointment fully expecting them to give me medication for him that I already have. If it wasn't such severe discharge from his ear, I would just give him the medication and see how it goes. Have dealt with yeast infections with a different dog multiple times, but this seems to be way worse.

    My collie snapped at my 4yo last night as he grabbed her around the neck and drag her from her food. My fault of course.

    I thought there was a negative to doing it that way. My quick Jugsian research when I originally posted didn’t uncover that info, but I do remember hearing it now.

    Foster dude came by yesterday and gave Watson a flea/tick/lice gel treatment so hopefully we’re good now. I didn’t know how prevalent ticks are in Colorado so that’s fun knowledge.

    Watson has been bark/wining when we crate him at night so that’s fun. He abruptly stopped after about ten minutes last night so we thought he’d gone to sleep but turns out the fucker had managed to escape and was just out all night. Good news didn’t see any evidence of accidents and he didn’t get into the trash at least.

    13 year old dog got the zoomies in the backyard yesterday for the first time in a while. Always ends it by flipping on his back and snaps his teeth at me to playfully bite my hand. He pretty much always bites too hard, but then he licks to say sorry.

    Gave him some precautionary painkillers because that dumbass was gonna be sore. Someone also drove by while I was walking him and said he's a pretty dog.

    Big day for Griff

    Yeah, the stuff i've read and watched says that if you do it, it takes longer for the head and mouth to come out, which gives them more time to inject bad shit into the dig. The quicker the removal is, the better, which is why the tick key is great.
    I saw a video showing this thing you twist, but I would think that is more of a chance that the mouth and head stay in the skin which isn't good either

    I think Watson is on a hunger strike. Trying to acclimate him to his crate so we put his food in the back and shut him in when we gave him his dinner. He refused to eat it and just stared at us for ten minutes. We let him out and he's not gone near his bowl for two hours.

    has he eaten out of the bowl before and just stopped when it went in the crate?
    Usually hand-feeding helps when they won't eat out of the bowl, get them wanting it and then let them see you putting it in the bowl.

    Used these on my ball sack as a camp counselor and they worked great. They’re also good for removing ticks.

    Bull Terrier fucked me up as a young kid. Spud McKenzie looking dog, solid white, named Winston. Chased me in circles as I clung to the merry go round for dear life, leaping and snapping several times until he finally connected and snatched my ass. Threw me into the dirt, rag dolled me and tore through my Levi’s. No puncture wounds but he fucked me up pretty good.

    And the owner definitely qualifies as an asshat.

    Found a tick on Tosu's eye lid, that was fun getting off.

    He went back to day-care today, hopefully he's a worn out pup when he gets back.

    Watson has been hunting/stalking other dogs when we walk him; he does this crouch walk as they approach and then leaps after them once they pass. If they're close by he'll growl/bark as well. Any way to get him to do not that? Apparently jerking his lead or yelling at him just teaches him to fear other dogs?

    Keep his attention on you. What kind of leash do you have him on? Give the other dogs way more room and stop the behavior as soon as it starts.

    Normally on a retractable lead on a vest on longer walks but we've been going back to the cloth lead because of the behavior since it's easier to control. He'll do this even if the other dog is on the other side of the street though.

    Tosu tether broke sometime during the night so he’s been out and gone. He just showed back up on the porch, laid down without scratching to come in, and went to sleep. He’s soaking wet and dirt w as hell. Would like to know where he went, what he did, how long he was free.

    Do you have a slip lead? It's a leash that doesn't require a collar, goes around their neck and works like a regular leash, but if you have problems with pulling or behavior, you can put it around their snout and it pulls their head down when they try to pull. It really calms them down as they don't like their head being forced toward their chest.

    [​IMG]

    Until you get used to it you may want to keep the vest on with a leash as backup, but it is a great way to chill out a dog that wants to go nuts.

    Looks a bit like a choke chain; it doesn't hurt them right?

    A retractable leash is worthless. They can be pretty dangerous too.

    If they pull on it a lot in the "leash" configuration it tightens and they can choke themselves, but it definitely doesn't hurt them and that's when you put the snout thing on them anyway.
    It's nothing like a chain where it can tighten too much, this thing can only get so tight due to the width and type of the material, but at that point you should have it on their snout to correct the behavior anyway.
    I've had one for Scarlet since she was a puppy and it is amazing, I barely have to put in on her snout anymore, usually just when she is in squirrel acquisition mode.

    Our neighbor has a 70+ pound Yellow lab that pulls like a mule, but as soon as you put the slip lead on over her snout, their 10 year old daughter who doesn't weigh much more than the dog can walk her with no problem.

    The vest/harness thing has it's uses but it also promotes them to pull as they aren't getting any kind of correction from the leash.

    Yeah, any dog over about 15 pounds should never be on a retractable leash. I've had them snap on me, luckily the dog didn't run and no one was hurt but they can easily fly back and do serious damage to you.
    Can also wrap around your legs and hurt you pretty bad if the dog goes nuts and runs in circles.

    both my dogs learned on the and walk with them, once you teach them how you want them to walk it’s really becomes a non issue

    Yeah, they train a dog to pull and it’s impossible to get him under control in an emergency situation. Also, if you drop it, the sound of the heavy plastic handle chasing it makes the dog take off running away from you.
