    Is vinegar safe for use as weed killer

    Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of the safety of using vinegar as a weed killer if dogs were to nibble after treatment? I know it's ok for ACV in their water bowl, but it's not the same thing as using it full strength to kill weeds. I think you're also supposed to use white vinegar...

    Like the new look

    The new colors really make a difference in the way the forum looks. Very pleasing to the eye, and so much easier on the eyes to read.

    Are we chasing away new members?

    It's an interesting and thought provoking discussion on the bought my wife a puppy thread. Lots of good points that bears a true debate. The forum is a much quieter these days, unlike the lively one I joined 2 years ago. So unless there's a secret forum we weren't invited too, why is it so...

    What is the difference between selective and reactive?

    Can anyone explain this to me? I'm trying to explain to my husband and others, and I'm not sure I'm explaining it correctly. It's been discussed many times here, but unfortunately the old threads no longer work.

    Just a curiosity question

    I'm curious how many of you have dogs that won't sleep on their backs, or ever lay on their back exposing their belly. I know it's not a bad thing. I'm not concerned in the least way. But I find it interesting that the most easy going, submissive type one in the group, doesn't do it. I've been...

    Would you intervene if you saw an animal being abused?

    I know I would, in one form or another. First I'd call 911 to report it and stay on the phone until help arrived. What happens next would depend on if I were alone or have a dog with me. I have zero tolerance for such behavior, with a bad temper too. I wouldn't think twice about putting myself...

    Need some help with indoor exercise ideas.

    We took Molly and Buddie to the vet for routine exam & boosters at the beginning of the month. I've been worried about Buddie's weight for awhile now. But when he got weighed I was shocked! He weighs 69lbs & that's not lean weight. I asked the doc questions because I don't get it. All 4 dogs...

    What's your favorite training advice?

    I'm curious, if you could only give one piece of advice to a novice trainer, what would it be?

    Something weird Buddie did, that I've never experienced

    Around 11pm I was putting the food bowls down, and Buddie sat down licking his lips. He seemed unable to stop. I gave him a minute or two and he kept doing it. I checked his mouth as he had been chewing on an antler, but nothing was in there. I checked his eyes, I was thinking seizure at this...

    Which agencies actually collect and study bite stats?

    I read something yesterday in an article written by the guy who operates Bikers Against BSL. He listed mistakes of breed advocates that he hears all the time. I agreed with most of them, but others I question. One of them was his answer about inflating bite stats. He says the only people who...

    Switching from Merrick, suggestions wanted

    I let my friend and DIL know about the sale of Merrick to Purina, and of course they're now on the search for a replacement. My DIL is on a back burner for 2 months because the vet derm has the dog on Royal Canine Rabbit to see if their dog has a protein allergy to chicken & beef. My friend is...

    How to train a dog to not sleep in crate at night?

    My SIL asked me this question, I gave her a few thoughts, but said I'd ask here. To clarify for you, she had only used crates when they're at work, or away from home. The dogs slept with them at night. A few months back she had knee surgery, and it hurt her when the dogs slept on the bed. So...

    Can you help me figure out what to call this behavior?

    This behavior is related to dogs not being jealous. After I explain dogs don't get jealous, I'm asked the following question. "Then why do they act like they are?" I explain it's more of dogs viewing us as a resource/caregiver. "So when I'm petting one dog, why does the other come over to get...

    Tearing of eyes and tear stain question

    I've been searching through the forum and can't find the answer I'm looking for. Buddie has excessive eye tears and staining from them. I already know there's not a lot you can do about the staining, but what are some causes of excessive eye tears? Allergies or eye problems? Or are there other...

    Fellow Victor HPP feeders

    Hi guys, I was wondering if you'd share how much your dogs weigh and how much Victor you feed. I give all 4 of ours 2 cups a day. Three of them weigh 46-49 lbs, and Fatso weighs 63 lbs. One only eats 1 1/2 cups daily, but she's maintaining her weight, so I'm not worried. I am surprised tubby...

    Where did you get your dog(s) ?

    CasperWorldPeace's thread about adopting got me thinking about this. I'm curious how you came to own your dog(s), purchase, adopt, stray? All 4 of our current dogs were strays and we were unable to locate their owners.

    Excessive tail chasing/spinning

    My friend's 4 month old GBB puppy is chasing his tail to the point that it's causing us to be concerned. She asked the vet about it last week when she took him in for his shots. The vet said he's probably bored, which is what I thought at first. I kept engaging him with play and he'd play for a...

    How about starting a movie/tv thread?

    I'm a huge movie lover and some tv shows. We have a music one, so I thought a movie thread would be fun. Like current ones to recommend going to see. Or favorite lines from movies. An oldie that you never got around to seeing. Thoughts?
