Karen Pryor i click clicker – BLACK, for Clicker Training

  • Revolutionary in design and function the new i-Click was designed by the clicker trainers at KPCT to provide the next generation tool for clicker training.
  • Shhhh! Listen. A quiet click. For classes or for sound sensitive animals it’s the must have tool. And animals that have been trained with a classic box clicker completely understand the lighter sound of the new i-Click.
  • Timing is Everything. With the new-i-Click you won’t miss a clickable moment because you fumbled trying to use your clicker. The i-Click has been designed to let you click no matter how you happen to grab hold of it. Upside down click, sideways click, right side up click. You can click with your thumb, with your palm, even your foot. And no more worries about clicking with your gloves on, if you suffer from arthritis or if you have long nails or large hands.
  • Everyone Can Click. The new i-Click is disabled friendly. Drop the clicker on the floor (it always lands in a clickable position) and you can click with your foot. Strap it to a wheel chair and click with your palm or chin.
  • Balanced Clicking. The trigger has been engineered so that a small amount of pressure is all you need to click, but you aren’t likely to click early or mistakenly either. Balance – something that a clicker trainer readily appreciates. Right Sized. The i-Click is small enough to be hidden in your palm; not only does this make it wonderfully discreet, but you can click in that position! This means you never need fret about the clicker becoming a visual cue.

Q&A: I need to know “how to brush my dogs teeth” ?


by cabbit

Question by uVme: I need to know “how to brush my dogs teeth” ?
As told, i really need to know “how to brush my dogs teeth” ?

I have some doubts about this, I just checked out this Squidoo Lens
http://www.squidoo.com/howtobrushmydogsteeth
where I get some good information, but it seems quite a bit difficult to actually “brush my dogs teeth”. There was a video which explained it well but made me more worried to get this done.

I have a 5 year old terrier mix which wont stay still no way.

Seams I’ve relaxed with this too long as his breath is a little bit strong. Well, I give him bones and cookies, so he has not very dirty teeth, but it’s his breath which disturb’s me.

Are there any other ways to clean his teeth, any dog mouth sprays or mental pills or some available. No joke, my siter in law actually gives to here dog suggar free mental candy, like Mentos.

Let me have your opinion please.

Answer by Nearly-Dr Ferox
A vet can clean your dogs teeth under anaesthesia, which is a very thorough clean, and should be kept in mind if you don’t manage to clean his teeth or get his breath under control.

Brushing your dog’s teeth is the same as brushing your teeth, getting the dog to sit still is the hardest part. Some dog’s wont tollerate it, and if that’s the case getting themt o spend time chewing will help. Raw bones (some people will disagree with raw bones, but they’re fine under supervision if they’re too big to be swallowed), Kongs, greenies etc that get your dog chewing will help to keep his teeth clean. Cookies don’t do that much really, it’s the ammount of time chewing that’s important.

Help with dog food (raw food/”home cooked” vs. Kibble)?

Question by h: Help with dog food (raw food/”home cooked” vs. Kibble)?
I will be getting a small breed dog soon and I have been doing some research on dog foods. I would like to do the “home cooked” or “raw” food diet but I would like some more information on this.

-what are some recipes?
-can this be frozen to be used later(could I make all the meals for the week and freeze them)?
-how much does this cost?
-how much time does this take per day?
-How much should I feed the dog (also include how many times a day I should feed…keep in mind it is a small dog I would be cooking for)
-Would a raw food diet be better? (reasons why/recipes for this)…I would imagine that uncooked chicken would be bad…?( i know dogs are animals but they’re also domesticated)

I’ve looked into different kibbles and decided that Blue Buffalo would probably be best as it seems healthy, had good reviews, and is available at my local pet store…but I’m unsure of this as I would imagine that the raw/home cooked diet would be best
So a few questions I have about this are…

-would it be good to mix both the blue buffalo and the home cooked diet together (how much should I give of each)?
-If I was unable to give the home cooked meal would the Blue buffalo be ok for the week?
-what are your experiences with Blue buffalo (for small breeds)?

I want to feed what’s best for my dog but I also cannot afford to spend 60 dollars on a bag of dog food that will last me a month. (I did the math and blue buffalo should last me around 2.5 months for 30 dollars….plus I can get a discount on the food)

Please let me know your experiences for both and help me make the right choice for my dog

Best answer:

Answer by Bells IS Suspended
Raw diet doesnt have recipies, per se.

You feed RAW meats…organs…etc. There are books on the subject and groups here on Y/A.

I personally do not feed Raw because I neither have the time or the knowledge to get into it. (Or the organizational skills required to make sure that there is raw meat ready on a daily basis for feedings).

I feed Wellness. Tried Blue Buffalo first, its a decent food, but didnt sit well with my dog.
