  1. Our recently retired greyhound has been with us for a couple days now. The first day he was great with walks, the second day a loud, fast car came by a quiet street and scared him. Now he is so so so reluctant to go outside and once he’s out there he doesn’t move at all. How can I help?
  2. Hello, Were new and have just rehomed a 4.5 year old black and white Boy called Senner. Hes recently retired. Weve brought him into a 4 bed detached home with a small to medium garden. No other pets or kids, just me and my partner. We knew he was a bit shy when we first adopted him but were just hoping for some advice. He has taken to his bed in the kitchen immediately, this is his safe space, and its very difficult to get him away from there. He doesnt seem to recognise his name, making any training difficult. When we first got him 2 weeks ago you could put his lead on and this would get
  3. Hi All: I posted this in a related thread, but am really curious for any input you all might have... Regarding Freezing/Statuing: Does anyone have thoughts about "waiting it out" vs "letting the dog know whose boss"? With ours, if we wait it out, we've learned it could be a looooong wait, and we just don't always have time for that in our hectic schedules. With the harness, I've begun to immediately lift her up and forward when she statues (it may take two or three times, but it tends to get her going). Sometimes I worry it is too forceful, but it doesn't seem to bother her and I
  4. Hi, Philly and I live near New Haven, CT. Looking for monthly walks near us to socialize with. A potential dog sitter made a comment about seeing a bunch of greyhounds walking on West Haven beach; I've searched online for a group that does that to no avail. The adoption group I got Philly from does monthly walks but it's too far for us. Anybody out there near us? Thanks!!!
  5. Winnie and I get up around 5-5:15am most mornings. She usually starts shifting around before this, but not always. The minute I turn on the TV she jumps up for some cuddles/petting followed by her breakfast (which she gladly eats!) We walk at 6am, so after she eats she usually settles into her bed while I get ready for work. But recently, I've had to pitch treats for her to even want to get up to go for a walk! And even then, they've got to be smelly treats, none of our usual freeze dried chicken treats. This morning, she ate the treats, I put on her collar and she went right back to her b
  6. Hi, this is my first time posting and we need some help. My dog refuses to go outside, even to potty. We got our grey, Shelby, Sept 2012, when she was 2 1/2 years old. For the first couple of months she loved going for walks. Then, suddenly, she had to be coaxed to go for a walk, although she LOVED to run around in fenced yard and would pee and poop out there. We hadn't trained her at that point, and only my husband was able to get her to go out for a walk. Long story short, we hired a very good but VERY expensive trainer for about 4 months in mid-2013. She showed us how to lead She
  7. Looking to get some good tips on how to get Biggie to "happily" leave the house for walks with my parents. Biggie and I stay with my parents 2-3 days a week a few times a month and I have a longer work trip coming up where I would like to leave him with my parents (better a place he is kind of familiar with than a kennel). After lots of adjustment pains - Biggie and my parents (especially my Dad) have become more comfortable with each other. Once he gets outside with them - he has a lovely walk. The problem is actually GETTING him outside. If I'm not home Biggie refuses to leave his bed t
  8. Olivia loves, loves, loves her walkies! She dances and prances when I show her the leash, she trots merrily along our routes. She equally loves our sniffy walks and our "walk" walks. Either way, she loves walks. This is my girl who is calm and quiet inside the house, isn't a bit toy nut, and generally isn't energetic otherwise. Chloe is my nutso dog who plays with toys with frantic energy, runs around the backyard several times a day, enjoys being outside in the backyard, and gets anyone she can to chase her - Olivia, me, my husband, she'll even ask The Cat to in a pinch. (Cat always says
