Behavior, Housebreaking, Obedience / Any suggestions?
« on: March 01, 2006, 01:53:10 pm »
My dog will not stop stealing food!  She even tries to steal it when we're eating it!  Hubby is losing his patience with this dog and honest6ly so am I.  I can handle most issues but stealing food from my kids is not one of them!my kids have to sit pratically in my lap so they are close enough for me to protect them from the food stealing dog.  We've decided to put her out during dinner time but I can't leave her out all the time so I'd really like to fix this.  I haven't got the first clue how.  She has plenty of food but only seems to like people food, not dog food.  I even switched her to raw meat and while it helped, it didn't completely solve it.  She's the worst when we bring something home.  Does anyone have any ideas of how to fix this so we won't have to lock her out anytime there's food within reach (she'll steal from counters too!)

I can't believe people like this one!  If she didn't want  them to breed why didn't she get them fixed?!  Now we're going to be killing more good dogs to make room for her "oops!" as they clog up an already overworked animal shelter!   >:(

General Board for Big Dogs with Big Paws / I have dog sickness :(
« on: February 28, 2006, 04:00:05 pm »
I need professional help please.  You see, I got one dog, and she's great but she needs a friend.  Almost as soon as I got her I started looking for my next dog.  Now don't get me wrong, I don't need 100 dogs but 3 wouldn't hurt right?  Maybe 5?  Ack! 

I need at least 2 more dogs in my house!  It just doesn't feel like home without furballs everywhere.  I grew up with them and until I married my non-animal lover hubby (wish I would have studied him as much as I do my dogs!  lol)  I've always had at least two at a time.  I would have a HUGE yard (farm) and a herd of doggies if I could.  So you see, I need help so I don't drive my poor hubby nuts crowding the house.  He just doesn't get me and my sickness.  lol.  I NEED FURBABIES!  :P

Wait, ok maybe it's not me.  Maybe it's HIM that needs help!  yeah, let's change him instead so more dogs will have a home.   I just don't see what's wrong with 5 dogs.  Or even 7. 8?  Could someone please explain to him why we need more couches in the house too?  ;) :D

Kelly, I love dogs! :-*

Great Dane Discussions / 2 Qs for GD people
« on: February 28, 2006, 03:45:21 pm »
1.  How old is too old to have their ears done?

2.  Am I the only one who thinks blues should have natural ears?

I'm thinking of adopting a blue dane 14 months old with natural ears so it got me to thinking.  Normally I prefer cropped ears but on the blue boys it just seems too look better to have the natural.  Either way i was curious when they should have their ears done and when it's too late.  Thanks!

My dog was fixed on the 11th (or so the pound says) but she's been acting weird since I got her and today I noticed her leaking in the rear and her teats (the rear most two) seem to be filling up.  I've never had a dog until long after they have been fixed so I don't know how mornal this is.  Is she supposed to be acting like she's in heat or pg?  I've been around both (females in heat or pg) so I recognize the way she's acting.  She also mothers her toy including cleaning it.  Should I be worried?

We found our new fur kid yesterday at the pound!  She's a 3 yr old black and tan Dober girl named Holly (changed from Olive).  She's such a sweetheart!  She needs to learn a few tings like not stealing food but she loves the kids, tried to protect us from hubby when he came home last night, she's housebroken, and although she needs some reminding, she's got some basic training.  Of course she whines, kisses, and needs to be pet constantly.  They are obsessions at this point but we're hoping she'll calm down when she settles in.  We are at least her tird family too.  She was given up for having too much energy.  :(  I got a bit worked up when I heard that.  Of course she's got energy!  She's a doberman!  Stupid people tick me off!  Do your homework!  oops! sorry, getting a bit worked up.  :-[

She's a complete diva that announces her arrival everytime when she steps out the back door.  lol  We're taking her shopping this morning so she can have everything she needs (and most of her wants) in her new home.

We're so happy about her!!  The teddy bear that lost is life to her isn't thrilled though.  lol  We look forward to getting to know all of the other doberkids and owners around here better.  I have a Q.  What food do you feed your doberbrat and how much?  Thank you for reading!

Great Dane Discussions / Can someone please tell me

How tall a 3 month old puppy would be?  I saw a mixer at the pound today and they said he was 3 months (I'm not sure they were right and I don't know what breed they were claiming him to be but they are almost never right) and a GD is the only dog I could think of that would be THAT big when he was a puppy.  I can't remember much about his face because we had to leave fast (another dog was being mean to my son) but I know I've seen his coloring in some GDs.  Hopefully I'll get a better look at him when I go back tomorrow.  Thank you for reading and for any help you can give.
