Behavior, Housebreaking, Obedience / Best Harness?
« on: December 22, 2007, 05:47:24 pm »
Hi Everyone!

Time for Louie to graduate from his collar. He's starting to pull HARD and I really don't want to go the prong collar route. He's 4 months old and has developed selective hearing while we're out walking. I don't want to tug on his collar anymore for fear of injury and need to find an alternative.

Anyone have a favorite harness? I've heard the Sensi-harness and the Ruff Rider are both good.

Any advice?

Hello all,

I'm a lurker that finally registered! Love this site and I'm hoping someone might be able to help us - this is so frustrating!

I have a 4 month old Swissy named Louie. We had a terrible flea problem a couple months ago but have totally gotten rid of them. He's now got frontline on him (and his brother cats) and haven't seen a flea in weeks. Problem: He's itching himself to death. He keeps us up at night banging around in his crate.
I'm feeding him California Natural Chicken and Rice. We've tried Benedryl the last few nights, but 4 hours into it, he's itching again, so I don't think it's allergies. So, no fleas, no allergies what could be happening? The poor thing gets so frustrated he cries and I feel terrible. Any advice?
