Sorry for laughing.. It sounds like a horrendous experience and I wouldn't wish it on anyone but it's also most amusing when I'm not the one who has to smell it or clean it up. :laugh: 

 

It's fabulous to hear that his skin is looking so good!!!

Oh it gets worse, hubby had to go for a reasonably long drive for work and since we are going stir crazy asked us to come. Just as we arrived into the town we were going to Kane vomited everywhere in the car, that’s same fish smell.

we pulled over to try and clean up and it immediately  started pouring with rain. 
we had to find a place to buy towels or blankets in this unfamiliar town. 
thankfully he is exhausted now and we hope he sleeps all the way home

Jafco brand muzzle might be suitable.

 

I think I shared in your previous thread (?) some info about socialisation in a pandemic and links to online class options. If not it will be on someone else’s post, perhaps in the puppy subforum.

We have reached the point where his puppiness cannot handle the crate anymore. He ripped his bed apart in 2 minutes flat. So then we gave him only a towel and he ripped that. I take him out for short stints on lead and he is going nuts almost back flipping in his efforts to let his energy out. 
give me strength. He has a rubber KONG that I am comfortable with him having but he’s over it. I gave in and let him have an antler to chew because he’s never broken anything beyond tiny grains off one before. I am watching closely and he is putting all of his mite into destroying it!!

I’m glad your pup is out of surgery and doing well.  I had two dogs that chewed up a box (high up on a vbench) oh insulin needles and swallowed the tips. They outgrew the chewing of things they shouldn’t hang in there

Oh that must have been frightening. 
I really am glad he’s doing well too. I would prefer him being a little more relaxed today though. He’s being a naughty little ratbag today! :scold:

Both your revolting fish stories made me laugh...it just wasn't your day!

Poor you

So glad his skin is much better, you are a good caring hooman (well apart from your fishy smell that is :laugh: )

I’m sure our whole house smells like fish! Today I am determined to find a suitable muzzle, my anxiety is off the grid whenever I take him outside, he’s so quick and I have already had to reach into his mouth to remove contraband twice since he came home. Only tiny things but as soon as I look away I am sure he will consume a stone or something.

here is a photo of Kane acting as crazy as I feel.

With him busting out of his skin, it's  the ideal time time for heaps of mental work.....that will tire him, interest and occupy him, without having to exercise him lots.  Google trick training......

Sounds great. Tomorrow he allowed to stop eating purée! I will chop up some tiny pieces of his SPD roll for treats. I’m about to hit google for some tricks to teach him :)

You can probably make the Baskerville muzzle work if you gaffa tape the bottom access holes - he can still breathe etc through the side and top holes but then he can't smoosh his mouth down onto the contraband?

I took Kane for an outing to the pet shop and we tried on and bought a Baskerville muzzle. I figured if needed I could modify it in some way and I know he will outgrow it quickly. 
we also found some salmon jerky for training treats. Which we will start tomorrow. 
he seems to be getting overly attached to me during this time, so I’m trying not coddle that and just allow him to whinge when I leave the room (it’s hard though because I’m trying to keep a close eye on him since he will eat his bedding given a chance).

the pet shop staff remarked on his lovely manners when he listened to my “sit” “stay” command, everyone thought he was lovely until he started whingeing and then relieved  his bladder on the floor :o
oh dear!

He sure is. I love him but Im wondering what possessed us to get another dog. It seems there is always something wrong with him and I worry about him like a child.

Yesterday afternoon he suddenly started having diarrhea, he went through the whole surgery etc without diarrhea even though the vet said he would probably get it. Now out of nowhere hes got very loose stools, not watery but not formed either.

I bought new SPD roll yesterday which has an expiration date of the 24/5 it smells different to the first rolls (which had an expiration date in August) but not in a spoiled way, but different enough for me to have checked the expiration date, I'm wondering if it could be the SPD roll. Like I said, it always something!!! He also started shaking his head a lot last night, its less this morning but still present.

On the upside we did some training this morning. So far Kane knew 'sit' (and settings in which he must sit, like before he was allowed through doors to the outside and when getting fed), 'stay' (for a reasonable amount of time) and 'shake'. Today he has learned 'lay down'. I want to teach him speak but he is a bit quiet so far this morning and I could only elicit a whine from him and not a bark.....

He might be quiet from the diarrhoea upset. I'd chuck the roll out if I were you. Hopefully he'll pick up quickly. It sounds like the poor little monkey (and you!) can't catch a break. It's great that he's doing so well with his training though. :)

I have chucked the rolls out and bought more :banghead:

this new one smells the same as the earlier rolls. There’s been no more diarrhoea since 5 am this morning, so hopefully it has settled. 
I also discovered while doing some muzzle training today, that the muzzle I bought is too big. I’m going broke!!!!

Dogs can get expensive really quickly but I must admit, you seem to have had the worst run of luck I've seen with a new pup. I'm so sorry. I can imagine how stressful it must be, both emotionally and financially. :(
