Argh, this all reminds me I need to get another box! Also need to take Chubby in and have him weighed, I think I have trimmed him down such that he needs the smaller dose.

I give the heartworm pills to all my guys at the 1st of the mo...

Thanks for the bit on the crates- my guys are all adults and pretty calm and quiet. I don't think they'd try and bust out, but then, if something SCAREY happened I don't know. Hmm. Hadn't thought about that. Maybe the big ol' heavy Vari-Kennels...

LOL, Scout- I have over a month to pack- I always forget stuff too! That is why I am making the list.

Here is my (mostly) fool-proof pack-method.

Make a list, like I am doing now, well in advance. It can be simple as hand ...

Plastic Shower Curtain (to put over the hotel carpet under the crates)

Food bowls
Water Bowl
Collars with tags
6' Leashes
Flexi lead
Poop Baggies

Have you tried making him a "Pee Post"? Some guys need a target to lift their legs on. It can be really helpful if you have gone the paper-training route.

To make a pee post, take a standard two-liter coke bottle, fill with water half ...

Ok- in the next couple of months I have some big trips that I will be going on with my dogs. My question is this:

What all should I make sure I take?
Are there any medications I should be sure to pack, just in case?

I ...

Please do not get a Sheltie. They love to chase cars.

Why not fence an area that the dog will stay in when you are not around to watch over it? Your dog would be much safer. I learned the hard way years ago. It is horrible to watch...

If she is sidewinding on you, she probably is short-coupled with overly long legs or has a better rear than her front. Both of these things can keep her out of the points.

Try moving her more slowly and see if that helps.

Another thing is, in a competitive breed like yours- you were sold a show prospect. Do you have the knowledge to tell that she IS or isn't show material now? Do you know what her faults and strengths are? Are you grooming and handling her to sho...

It sounds to me like you are at such a frustrated point that you do need to seriously consider a new home for Lexie. She is obviously not a good fit in your household. As she has 10 AKC points, in addition to obedience training and intelligence, ...
