The dog park is a great place for dogs to learn bad doggy manners and possibly pick up a disease.
On top of that the larger breed will always be blamed if their ever is an altercation.

Yes. I used to take Neeko to a dog park when she was a puppy/young dog, and only dog. It was mostly fun for both of us.

The sign at the park we went to clearly stated no children under the age of 13, yet there would occasionally be folks in there with strollers. It is so dangerous, and frustrating.

I had to bite my tongue on our walk many times.

I complete agree with point number 1. The amount of times I see owners who try to force their dog into behaving by their definition of a well behaved child, as opposed to doing what a dog should be able to do, is infuriating!

Comment on A Quality Probiotic is a Must Have Dog Supplement by Yilise http://www.keepthetailwagging.com/a-quality-probiotic-is-a-must-have-dog-supplement/#comment-23362 Sun, 19 Apr 2015 05:03:25 +0000 http://www.keepthetailwagging.com/?p=15902#comment-23362 thank you for the advice!

I’m also going to start my dogs on In Clover Connectin from reading your posts. I’ve been mostly supplementing with Grizzly’s Pollack Oil and AGV because those are easier to understand. The world of supplements is a little intimidating and I tend to shy away from products with ingredients I have difficulty pronouncing. You make it easier!

I’m also doing the A to Z challenge this year and you are welcome to visit if you have time!

Since your dog’s don’t have digestive issues, then you can go with either one. If I were you, I’d go with the OptaGest and then if you feel that you need more down the line, I’d add FullBucket or another quality probiotic. I’m putting our dogs back on Nature’s Sunshine Probiotic Eleven, because with 4 dogs, it’s more affordable and works great with OptaGest.

Thanks again for the kind words.

Both my dogs are on a Darwin. My first dog was fed Darwin as his first solid food from the breeder so he has been on a raw diet his whole life. My second dog is a rescue that transited very smoothly to a raw diet when within days of adoption. Neither of them have any digestive issues but I think it’s high time I start them on a supplement.

I’m a little overwhelmed by the choices out there and reading your blog has been a great help!

I added the FullBucket, because the OptaGest is just a prebiotic and they need a probiotic too. Giving them just one wasn’t working, but giving them both works fine. Sydney and Zoey don’t need them both, because they have healthy digestive systems, but I give it to them anyway, because I was told you can’t overdose on these supplements – better safe than sorry.

Long story short, if your dog doesn’t struggle with a sensitive gut, you can stick to one and see how he or she does. If you have a dog like Rodrigo and Scout, I suggest trying both and seeing how they do on it. I do give less of the recommended dosage of FullBucket, just one scoop per meal.

Comment on Living Longer | Do Raw Fed Dogs Live Longer? by Kimberly http://www.keepthetailwagging.com/living-longer-do-raw-fed-dogs-live-longer/#comment-23358 Sun, 19 Apr 2015 04:24:31 +0000 http://www.keepthetailwagging.com/?p=16374#comment-23358 All the more reason for me to help Sydney lose weight. She’s doing really well on the diet and exercise plan. I just wish I would have started sooner :)

All of our other dogs are crazy healthy and I love it!

I was looking at the website for this product and it said had this description “Highest concentration of probiotic to help fight pathogens. Prebiotics to feed the native microflora. Complete Enzymes to improve digestion. ”

I’m a little confused – is this just a probiotic or is this a combination of probiotic and prebiotic? Should I feed this with In Clover Opta Gest or is this good enough as a standalone?
