Dear Wetnose I caught your post a while back, I apologise for not responding, but Christmas time is insane around here. I work in a clinic and grooming is very busy this time of year. Plus I'm doing Christmas photo's of pets. I also just finished some stuff for a trainer magazine. Very excited about that. Did I hear you right about the Humane Society. Yes I worked there. But I'm sorry I don't think I remember you. I did speak with different people. I left because the cat lady was harrassing me. I think I was stepping on her toes or something. Do you remember her? Anyways, I have to go to bed now, I've got 10 grooms tomorrow (OMG) Mabe I will call in sick LOL, ya right. MAbe we can swop emails. Talk to you soon, chow! Susanne
I was in there one time and you were brushing out a collie. I did talk to you a little. I just commented on how much hair was being brushed out. Do you remember now? So you didn't answer the question about your job, oh well you said something about grooming dogs, and a vet hospital. I noticed that talk about the things dogs do and why. They told me in the Humane, that you were studying behavior, so I think Edith (the cat lady) was a little bent out of shape or something. Shes been there for a few years, and thinks she owns the place. I still go from time to time, do you ever think about going back. Anyways, my friend has this dog, and it keeps licking its front feet (they are brown)its a Bichon.And its legs/ It licks all the time, even when they are sitting right in front of it.What would you tell them what to do about it?
Hi Wetnose In your next post, tell me your name so I can hopefully remember you. Anyways I don't have much time, so I'll just get to the dog issue. First why the heck are you dealing with the issue? You first have to ask yourself why the dog is doing the behavior in the first place. And how much mental and physical exercise is the dog getting. Let me guess, over weight, loves to eat right? The dog is doing it right in front of the owners so its not separation anxiety, but it is stress, from a lack of activity. They need to up the exercise, provide more chewing fun everyday. To occupy him/her/ Talk to you soon!
