General Board for Big Dogs with Big Paws / Fear of Dremel
« on: April 06, 2007, 03:13:06 am »
Any suggestions in how to get my 2 big chicken Danes to not be afraid of the dremel?  I have tried treats, just keeping it out and around all of the time.  They act like it is something awful and I haven't even turned it on yet.  Their nails are so long and the vet won't trim them because they act so bad!!!  So any suggestions would be great.

Santa brought me a really nice Dremel with all kinds of attachments.  I want to do the dogs nails - So any instructions would be awesome.  It won't hurt them will it?  Kind of nervous about using it but they really both need it bad.

Great Dane Discussions / 1st night with Polar and Willow
« on: December 10, 2006, 11:47:13 pm »
We got in last night about 10pm.  Polar does awesome in the car.  My daughter brought out Willow on a leash and I had Polar and went met down the street.  They were very cute - wrestling with each other.  Willow likes him except when he steals her spot on the couch.  It has been wild, crazy dane wrestling - I hope they settle in soon.  My house will not be able to take much more.  lol it is like clash of the titans - knocking furniture over etc.  I did notice some food aggression from Polar.  He doesn't do it with me - I can stick my hand in his bowl when he is eating without a problem.  But Willow got close and he started growling.  Although he looks half starved and I know the breeder had other big danes - so I am not sure how much he actually got to eat.  I will be trying the Satin Ball recipe.  The poms -  I have just kept up in my bedroom.  I will introduce them this afternoon.  So far so good.  I will try to get some pictures today.  I am glad he is here - he is a sweet baby.

Great Dane Discussions / I got him!!!

Well, I picked up Polar this evening.  And I am glad I did.  He has been terribly neglected.  He is just skin and bones.  I can see his rib and hip bones.  He is skittish like he has been abused.  He was dirty and smelled like oils and gas.  He has scratches all over his face from the other dogs.  When we got into the hotel room - I turned on the TV and he freaked.  I don't ever think he has seen a TV.  But he is such a sweet baby - loves to cuddle and give kisses.  So he has had a bath and is sleeping on the bed...things are looking up for Polar.

Great Dane Discussions / Picking up Polar tomorrow
« on: December 07, 2006, 11:43:46 pm »
Well, I am up here in Portland and I will be picking up my new big baby tomorrow.  I am really excited!!!  Worried though because I have never had a deaf dog before.  It will be great to have him home.  I sure hope the other dogs feel the same way.  Willow is so spoiled I am not sure she wants to share the love.  Anyway, My daughter wants to change his name.  Here are the names on the table: Radar, Wolf Gang, Thorn, Van Gogh.  And other suggestions would be welcome.  I told my daughter that we could change his name every week as long as we keep the sign the same - he won't know.

Does anyone use this?  I am so tired of being the doorman to the large dog group.

Great Dane Discussions / What is up?
« on: November 25, 2006, 06:35:06 am »
I took Willow to PetSmart today (couldn't find the zen treats) and she acted like a fool.  We haven't been out in awhile - which is probably part of the problem.  She was ok at first just all over the place - pulling and not minding.  Then she started growling and barking at other dogs with her tail all the way down.  That is so not like her - she is usually very good at meeting people and other dogs. I don't know - do they go through some weird body snatcher teenage thing?  Just was very much not like her.  Maybe it was just too much.  It was really busy in there today.
