  1. When would you consider medicating a dog for anxiety? TL;DR - My house broken 2 year old pooch is stress-pooping after a big transition. She's always been an anxious thing. We've been asked if we want to medicate her before and declined in favor of modifying her behavior with positive reinforcement and training to improve her confidence. It's worked...until now. Help! Long version - Our Pandora is amazing - she's affectionate, intelligent, active, and sweet. She loves our two kids (toddlers) and deals with them well by alternating between playing nicely and finding a quiet spot to ge
  2. Cal likes to take my things and lay on or with them. Panda some something similar, but she just goes to where the things are. If I leave a worn shirt on the bed, Cal would take it and go to her favorite couch spot, but Panda would lay on it in its original place. I think it's sweet, especially since neither does it with my husband's items. Just mine and occasionally the kids' clothing. Nothing is ever damaged or chewed, just laid on or relocated.
  3. My condolences for your loss. Sending our love...
  4. Hi there! It's been a while since I've been on here. Just thought I'd give an update on my girls and see how y'all are doing. What's new? Who's got new pups? Who's pooches have done something impressive lately? Tell me about your adventures! Show off your pics! Calypso and Pandora have been awesome. Cal is newly four and doing great - we've discovered some hip soreness but a daily joint supplement has rapidly helped her get and stay better. We're going to be investigating some potential thyroid issues this summer, but it's bothering me more than it is her. Her attitude issues aren't
  5. I'm going to check our paperwork since we're renewing our insurance and certification next month and give United another call out of curiosity. Now I'm wondering if they're confused about allowing her!
  6. Waffles, I can't seem to reply directly to you on my phone! I've never flown with her but I'm told that she has the credentials (United confirmed, I was recently going to take her with me on the flight but canceled the trip). I always always always tell people she is a therapy dog and remind nervous employees (at stores and such) that they are not obligated to allow her. I don't know why but our official team color is red and her vest makes her look super official and very service dog like, so she has a pink PET ME leash sleeve and I like to show off her tricks and talk to people about the
  7. People in need of animal transport should contact groups like Highway Heros! <3
  8. This is exactly why my dogs will never fly in the cargo hold. Cal is a certified therapy dog so she's allowed to board a plane with me and sit between my legs/under the seat. And Panda will just never fly (because she's not capable of sitting still) because there's NO way I'm risking their lives.
  9. That's very disappointing. I'm usually quite unhappy with Petsmart's customer service and in-store presence. We love Chewy and use it almost exclusively...Their customer service has been AMAZING. This past winter they mailed us two commissioned portraits of our dogs and a handwritten note of appreciation for being customers. It was a total surprise, just arrived one day in the mail. They follow the dogs on instagram and borrowed two photos to paint off of. <3
  10. Can you help Dale get to his foster? Dale is a senior dog on his way to his foster where he'll get healthy and rest up while waiting for his FUREVER family to find him. If you're in Texas, Oklahoma, or Missouri with the ability to help, PLEASE reach out to Highway Heroes to pick up a leg of the drive. Dale is a Border Collie and he's being taken care of by Come Bye Border Collie Rescue! The CBBCR volunteers say Dale is just fantastic and who knows, maybe you know someone who needs a companion like this gentle and smiley boy! Or maybe YOU need him! ❤❤❤
  11. Awesome, I'll check these out. Is the warning against weave poles for the same reason as we warn folks not to run with pups, the growth plates need to close and mature?
