Thank you Cathy! I know Homer has to learn the cat and chicks are off limits, and my husband is doing a much better job reinforcing this than I am. He is consistenly stern and vigilant, and Homer woul ...

Just to make sure my earlier post did not somehow imply something I did not at all mean, I would like to say that I appreciated Dave's straight-on counsel very much. I in no way took offense. On the c ...

Thanks, Dave! Actually, after I read your post last night I did bawl my head off, but I have no one but me to blame! We returned the chickens to the pen today--he still goes over there, but at least c ...

Yes you're so right: we just didn't think the chickens were any issue, since he'd never paid any attention to them all this time. We are going to return the chickens to the pen. We have let the ...

I just do not know what to do. Yesterday afternoon Homer killed one of our chickens. Heretofore he has paid no attention to them, and we wrote it off to cabin fever (we have snow and rain) and being e ...

Thanks; yes I know the clicker is not an instant cure, and I took a bit of a risk yesterday. I just know my other dog could care less about clicker things, but I feel like after yesterday Homer ...

Thanks, everyone! The clicker article was very helpful, esp. since my sister in law is very keen on the method with her own dogs. I did a bit of casual testing with Homer yesterday. He already likes t ...

Well, Homer has come a long way in the 5 or 6 weeks we've had him: he isn't jumping the fence anymore--I think our German shepherd is keeping him from doing this(finally, he has a job!). He's settling ...

You are right; it is important to lose no time with these things--I was reading about dog vision issues and that hours can make a difference. Hopefully there won't be a next time, but I will remember ...

I am so happy: yesterday Homer's eyes were inflamed and weird looking-I immediately thought back to our other pointer, Toby, who had degenerative glaucoma last summer and had to be put to sleep. So af ...

Cheerio: where does one begin with SAR? Is it likely that my city has an organization for this purpose? I am only familiar with the obedience classes a local companion dog school offers. That is where ...
