Greyaholic (9/9)

  1. OK, I have ONE DVD! All the rest are Blu Ray. And, uhm, this was never ever used!
  2. Lila is sweet Snow looks like sugar Merc is a Dude Striped like a tigger It that was a glacier I think It’d Be Bigger A Poem by Nikita
  3. I have Apple products and I have no idea what you're talking about! There are tons of ways to monitor your home these days. You need a camera of some sort, and some way to stream to broadcast. Most cameras have their own apps--for example I use Arlo cameras. I have determined after years of monitoring that my dog sleeps all day, every day, and knowing this makes me feel 100% comfortable NOT paying a dog walker to wake him up and walk him mid day!
  4. Neither of my greyhounds has had even faint interest in "meeting" other dogs that aren't greyhounds. Eating maybe. Don't assume your dog wants to be social with other dogs just because her pack mate is gone. If she didn't like other dogs before, no reason to think she will now.
  5. All day in the crate and all night? It's most likely the crate causing her anxiety.
  6. Personally I think it's the "gated into our utility room" bit that's making him poo, and I bet if you stick him in a crate now, it'll get worse. He's an adult. Dog proof the house, give him more exercise in the morning, and let him loose. If it fails, you can always go back to what you're doing, but that's not really working so... Have had two greyhounds so far. They both hated their crates. One immediately, and one tolerated it for a whole day before he said "enough!" Best wishes!
  7. What Greysmom said! Consider his vocalizations (better than growling, no?) as communication. He can't talk. He's saying, "That was awesome, human. Enough please." As Chris (Greysmom) said, that's not aggression. You need to learn to speak dog.
  8. On the plus side, moving helped my SA dog a lot! I had gotten him to a place where he could cope with my daily departure. But moving to an entirely new neighborhood really helped old George. And he miraculously decided he COULD in fact walk up the stairs without my help the very morning we moved in. He just followed his new pals, the movers, right up the stairs as if he hadn't nearly killed me trying to teach him steps!!!
  9. Yikes. A lot of reinforcing of the behavior you DON'T want to reinforce, like making a picky eater. I would start by getting this dog comfortable walking up and down the stairs. You're lucky you can physically carry a dog down the stairs, but it's likely a very unpleasant experience for him, and if I had a choice between being carried down the stairs or peeing in the house...I think I know which one I'd chose. I know how difficult it can be, believe me. It took me weeks to teach my first greyhound how to use the stairs at my old building. I could NOT lift him, so for me it was moving each paw up each step (three flights) over and over and over. Eventually he just...walked down the stairs! Problem solved, but it wasn't easy. I feel like if he's not afraid to go down the stairs, the other matters will, one by one, start to resolve.
