    sensitivity to textures

    Is anyone else sensitive to certian textures - as in you can't touch a piece of clothing or sit on a sofa with a certian texture? I've had this for a while but it's been getting out of hand lately and it's driving me insane. I've never been able to touch denim without cringing, and the sound...

    Need some bunny input

    I have a bunny that I took over from a friend a little over a year ago. He wasn't getting great food and not too much movement. In the year we've had him, he's had 2 bladder stones - the first one was huge. The second one was big, but not AS big. :( He also had a cold inbetween... basically he's...

    Does your dog howl?

    Zora howls. Every time the phone rings, she'll sit infront of it and howl if now one answers. Its the ONLY time she howls. Gipsy never howled! So does your dog(s) howl? If so, when and why? :p

    Resilient dogs?

    Is your dog resilient? And if so, how do you deal with it? Zora just doesn't get it someone times. You can reprimand all you want, tie her up and ignor her all you want, she just does not get it sometimes. For example: Right now, leash manners are a problem again. A few weeks ago, she...

    constant barking?

    I.AM.ABOUT.TO.GO.INSANE. Siriously. Zora is like my velcro - and I love her to pieces, but I can't always do stuff with her, or I just want to hang out on the couch and watch TV. She however, does not understad. If I want to do something besides playing with her, or cuddling her, she barks...

    How vocal is your dog?

    How vocal is your dog - and why do they bark? Zora is WAY more vocal than Gipsy and she barks for totally different reasons. Gipsy would bark if someone rang the door, or she saw guest, or someone was in the yard. SOMETIMES if someone was walking by. Zora barks for none of these reasons -...

    Fear of other dogs?

    Zora gets nervous around (bigger) dogs. When we picked her up from the breeders, she said she was going through a fearful phase (they took the puppies to the stables). We go on little walks and obviously meet other dogs ;) She gets skittish though and tries to hide/back away when they get...

    Public transport

    For those of you who live in/near a city - when did you start training going on public transport? We'd like Chinook to not be afraid of the train/bus/Subway etc. I'd love to start when I can still carry her on the train (Theres generally a pretty big gap between the train and the platform)...
