Adult dogs are pretty fair with puppies. 

 

I know guys who swear by Ol' Roy which is junk by any measurement. 

 

To my mind, you buy the best food you can afford and the one that makes you feel good about what you're feeding your animal. Honestly, Jan, I never go to vets and the rare time I do it's just to get a piece of paper or confirm what I already know. I'd never take their advice about food.

i find that the stronger opinion someone has about food, the less you should listen to them. This works in terms of both dog food and human food.

Interesting how most of the serious dog people I know dislike and shun vets. I believe the veterinarians I cited were researchers, rather than animal hospital types.

As to the matter of dog food, none of the dog food companies are in the business of killing dogs, certainly none of the majors like Purina or Pedigree, as a very knowledgeable official in one of the major canine organizations once remarked to me.

Lefty,

It's been a while since i posted in this thread. Had saved some PDF's and links(about dog training, crate training and basic discipline for the higher prey drive dogs-shepherd/mal) fromm this thread onto my old computer but alas it died a while ago and I haven't been able to find them. If you have some good pdfs, book recommendations, links, etc I would appreciate it if you could send them my way.

Thanks!

Any advice,

My 4th month old literally just showed signs of aggressions by growling and barking. We just took her home from daycare and she was sleeping. My wife started to cuddle with her and she growled and let out a lunging fake bite bark. I proceeded to come over and start annoying her, she did the same thing. I grabbed her by the neck and put her down but she still fought. First time we have ever seen this. She is usually docile and has never exhibited this behavior.

^^ Not sure if they were links from me, but I would look at all of Mike Ellis' videos on Leerburg; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xe0-oqqoXvw

 

^ She's four months old so it's probably nothing. I wouldn't overreact and try and figure out what, if anything, caused it.
