  1. Being crosseyed

    can he pick up a ball OK if you roll it past him/away from him ? does he grab the tug first time when you dangle it in front of him ? Or is this part of his being "clumsy" Mind you, growing pups can often look/act very clumsy - all legs & elbows !! LOL I agree- if you are concerned- get specialist opinions . (and I think we need a photo of this gorgeous boy ;)
  2. Being crosseyed

    What does your boy do to play ? chase balls etc ? Catch anything ?
  3. ..and gradually replace with a better diet /or one you choose to avoid tummy upsets . GRADUALLY being the operative word So - over a couple of weeks, you change over to what you choose...by gradually adding a little more of the new, less of the old - that sort of thing - so puppy tummy gets used to digesting different things .
  4. I would suggest you do a course or two - when starting a business , some accreditation always shows dedication and hard work went into your 'title' . Remember too - training the dogs is the EASY bit . What you need to become is an excellent human body language reader/communicator/problem solver - as it is the humans with whom you will be working the hardest . You will need to educate THEM in what their dog is doing and why, and how to best manage it . Just my 2 cents worth ;) Good luck with it all .
  5. I second what Rebanne has posted, and recommend you find your state's Great Dane Club for good relevant advice .
  6. An update on Chase

    Thanks for the update he seems to be doing VERY well Pity Scout didn't snap - that's how pups learn! A decent snap/snarl, = lesson learned. Great photo of you both, too
  7. Help!!! What's this?

    "awkward belly button" ? Hmmm. just looks like a little umbilical hernia - ditto to fixing when dog is castrated No need for husband to "flip out" ...they are very common . Did the vet not pick it up on your "hey, we just got a new puppy, can you give him the 'once-over' check please" visit? if the vet wasn't concerned enough to mention it - I wouldn't worry too much either
  8. Upper Motor Neurone Disease - Tamar update

  9. Upper Motor Neurone Disease - Tamar update

  10. Victims to vigilantes, article about puppy scammers

    That would be a very frightening way to live
  11. Experiences with dog transport

    Wishing you all the best for tomorrow - it will likely be a very emotional day for everyone
  12. Is it just PTSD?

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY ,Nikki!
  13. Good for him! the dogs are having a ball!
  14. Is it just PTSD?

    Puppies do things to scare you .....
  15. Is it just PTSD?

    yes! their tummies often just say "NOPE",and throw everything back into the environment. What happened with Darling Kane will have affected you very deeply, and you will react strongly to all sorts of things. Did you know you can train without treats? Just pats/love work just as well <3 Since my Molly had a reaction to 1080 poison in my bedroom /the rest of the house after waking up alongside me one morning, I have not had a dog sleep inside. I can not. I can understand your worries.
