My bully is also 7! We use Earthbath shampoo. I'd recommend these Keto-C Antiseptic wipes if he has any skin fold irritation. You might want to try a fish oil to add to his food; that should help his hair and they just love it. My pup has some arthritis and hip dysplasia, so we give him a glucosamine/chondroitin supplement. He has a bit of a grain sensitivity so he eats Rachel Ray Just Six. I keep Benadryl on hand (vet approved) because it helps when he gets seasonal allergies. Get some dog toothpaste and a brush; it really does help. My pup loves any kind of dental bones, also. Keep an eye out for a head tilt or unusual ear wax/discharge as bullies can be prone to ear infections. Make sure he wears a harness (we've used a cheap roman harness for years but recently got this harness) and take good care of his neck- my boy has recently been dealing with a prolapsed intervertebral disk, which is caused by normal play like tug of war and fetch, jumping off the couch, going up and down stairs, and generally having a huge head. So now we play very carefully, carry him on stairs, and have him on an anti-inflammatory. He uses a raised feeding dish to prevent strain. We also put a little tennis ball in his food to make him eat slowly (he has a tendency to eat too fast and throw up). I use Argan oil and petroleum jelly on his nose when it gets dry.
I'm sure he'll let you know his taste in treats and toys soon, but my buddy likes antler chews, Busy Bones, and all stuffed animals. Rawhides make him throw up. Congratulations and good luck!

If you're willing to take the time necessary to find an amazing home for your dog - ie you're not trying to home the dog by a certain time and will place it wherever, even if it's substandard - then there's no shame in rehoming. Especially when you thought things were set up to deal with different situations (mom available for if you had a new job, a support system in place, etc).

Adopted street dogs are tough. I don't know how old the dog was when he was rescued from the street and how old he was when you actually adopted him but even rescued somewhat young can pose specific challenges. You don't know what they were exposed to (and not exposed to) during those crucial socialization periods. My cousin had one and actually did find a family with a large farm that could take in her dog and it worked incredibly well, but she took that time to find this exceptional home. If you know time is an issue and you're afraid you wont be able to find the best home in the right time, talk to a rescue. You can offer to be the foster and if "time runs out" so to say, they can probably find another foster until the right forever home comes up.

But, this doesn't mean that's your only option and your other options can be just as good. If you're able to work with a behaviorist you might be able to help with some of the issues - especially the ones that prevent your dog from being able to stay at your mother's. You might also want to check around at other daycares - they might be a little further, but you might have more options. I love Louis' daycare but realized it wouldn't work for Owen (especially since he'll be intact). Looking around I found a daycare that's much larger in scale which means they can handle much more (they can break up dogs into more specific groups).

You might also want to try to either up the exercise a little or spread it out more; some dogs end up doing better with multiple 10 minute walks instead of one 30 minute walk; especially a dog that grew up probably roaming or at least moving around during various times of the day instead of just once or twice.

You might also want to try some puzzle toys. Instead of feeding from a bowl, feed out of a kong wobbler, a treat dispensing ball, a digger bowl (which I just found out and absolutely adore especially for dogs that seem to use their paws a little more).

u/KuipersDad · 3 pointsr/Greyhounds

I have only had my greyhound, Kuiper, for 3 weeks, so I can speak to what the first couple weeks with a shy dog is. He is also a retired racer (race name Bella Kingo) and was off the track for about 2 months before coming into our home. What is your girls racing name? What is her new name going to be?

Greyhounds in generally seem to be a very reserved breed at first, but they then open up and ours is becoming quite the goofball!

I don't know if you plan on kenneling her at all, but we chose to kennel Kuiper and are very happy we did. He likes to "get away from it all" sometimes and just goes to his kennel to take a nap. Also, he prefers to eat while standing in his kennel - while reaching to his food bowl outside.

As for things to keep in mind. The first day is often overwhelming for the dogs (at least it was for Kuiper.) Hourly trips outside until he got on schedule (he didn't go poop for the first 2 days!) and we ended up adding some metamucil to his food to solidify his stool. Greys can be sensitive, and you'll notice it most when they go to the bathroom. Also, we kennel Kuiper in our room at night and the second night his stomach was grumbling so loud it actually woke us up. That sometimes happens with the stress of new scenery and a new diet.

Also, patio doors! Our grey took one look at our deck and headed right into our patio door. He didn't hurt himself, but was kind of confused as first. So, if you have a patio door, just draw the blinds or put some masking tape on it and then introduce it to him.

I'll give you our experience with our cats. When we first got Kuiper, we put the cats in the basement for the first day to give him a chance to acclimate himself to us and our house. The second day we brought the cats up and every time a cat would come near, Kuiper would jump to his feet. At first, we thought it was a sign of aggression, we soon figured out that he was TERRIFIED of them and just wanted to leave the room when they came in. 3 weeks later, he still doesn't "like" them, but generally completely ignores them.

Another thing you could do to help the bond is grooming her. We bought a grooming glove which Kuiper really likes. I think it helps build the bond between him and I.

I had the chance to take off some work and spend the first couple days with him - I think that helped. All in all, we are still learning a LOT. He hasn't had any accidents in the house and only barks (or whines) when he needs to go outside to relieve himself. Honestly, it has been nothing short of fantastic!

Edit: I would also recommend a harness instead of a collar for when you go outdoors. I was reading an article just the other day that said there has been an increase in cases of dogs having esophageal problems because of collars. With shy dogs, sometimes they like to just freeze and stand there - and sometimes you need to move them for their own safety (i.e. Kuiper likes to freeze when people on bikes come towards him and we need to gently move him to the side of the trail.) The harness takes the strain off the neck. Just my two cents :)

u/unicornsprinklepoop · 3 pointsr/Greyhounds

Greyhounds love slumberballs! I got my 60 pound girl a extra large one since I knew she'd like a lot of room to stretch out on it, so you could either do that size or size up to a giant one to allow him to be more comfortable. Either size would work though.

Did you get toys yet? How about a raised feeder? In my experience with fostering and owning my girl, they don't seem to be too big on chew types of toys, but love squeaky toys. Mine loves this squeaky toy since the squeaker is super loud and strong, and this plush toy. A little while after we got her we also realized that while she wasn't into small balls like tennis balls or anything, she really loved big balls like soccer balls. I was sick of her destroying soccer balls quickly, so I got her one of these since it was recommeded to me by someone at the dog park, and that thing is seriously indestructible. As far as feeders go, if you haven't gotten one yet then I'd recommend this one. $20 and comes with two bowls. I've had it for a year now with no problems.

u/Filmcricket · 1 pointr/catsareliquid

Depends! Some cats are just roly poly like that with their heads because they’re goofy...but you may want to try a gentle muscle massage at the base of her neck (back of the head) extending up to her ears (you’ll be able to get a feel for the tendons’ locations) and in between and around the upper part her shoulder blades, and where her shoulder blades curve towards her chest.

Hopefully that makes sense! All that stuff is interconnected. I’ve been doing this for my previous cats for years when they got older, but my current cat seemed to have some light neck strain at age 2, so I also bought an elevated feeder similar to this one, and all of it has seemed to help!

If you’re interested in trying that feeder out, you’re in the US, short on cash and want to pop that onto an amazon wishlist (your address is private obviously) I’d be more than happy to send it your way. Just let me know :)

u/Works_For_Treats · 1 pointr/Dogtraining

Harder to flip over. Having the bowl in it's own stand like this may also help.

Take a look at this to make sure she's not a little big overweight and being picky. If you're hand feeding you might as well be training, so either teach her some things or practice cues.

It's worth trying treat dispensing toys, like treat balls, stuffed kongs or such to completely remove the need for bowls.

u/alphalicious · 2 pointsr/puppy101

my black lab pup does this. it's pretty adorable, but it makes a huge mess and tile is super slippery when wet. i haven't done this myself yet, but a friend recommend i try a raised feeding tray, something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Suncast-Elevated-Feeding-Tray-Large/dp/B0015QC4SO

u/stealthysocks · 1 pointr/pugs

Thanks for the replies. These are all the things we bought so far:





I think I'm going to buy a harness and cage in person because I want to make sure its the right fit.

Oh and here's a picture of the little guy :)

u/ayimera · 2 pointsr/Greyhounds

We used a raised feeder with a suction cup object in the middle of the dish to slow her down (otherwise she will inhale her food). Our adoption agency didn't really say either or, but she just looks more comfortable eating that way. We haven't had any problems; she doesn't ever have gas. We just make sure she isn't active for 30 min afterwards.

This is the feeder we use.

u/ejsandstrom · 6 pointsr/homeautomation

Thank you for the idea.

I know it's a first world problem but with 3 people in the house on various schedules we are always having to text or call each other to see if anyone fed the dogs.

I already have a spare window/door switch. We have a large container that holds the dog food and one of the dogs bowls fit in the top like this


I'm going to set it up so if the container is open, it sends out a notification. That way we all have the notification, every time the dogs are fed.

IFTTT may also get used too.

u/Cyt6000 · 1 pointr/puppy101

First make sure she isn't sick. Second make sure her kibble is a good food.

My bulldog isn't a big eater. Putting the food in a snuffle mat or a feeder toy can help, it makes eating more fun. My go-to is using a food stand (mainly to reduce chance of bloat) and mixing her food with healthy treats. I use canned pumpkin (Libby's 100%), egg, plain nonfat yogurt, cottage cheese, honey, peanut butter, blueberries, chicken/beef broth, carrots, or apple. Of course, not all of it at once. I've noticed if she's being fed the same thing for too long she gets tired of eating it. I can't blame her, I do the same thing.

Another suggestion is leaving her food down for ten minutes and if she doesn't eat it, put the food up. I haven't personally done this method, but I've heard it works.

u/sredit61 · 1 pointr/Whippets

We don't feed our girl raw food. We noticed she also likes to lick her food, not bite it like our lab (who is highly food-motivated).


One really big difference that improved things drastically... I thought she was bending her neck too much to eat. I know - sounds crazy right? So on a hunch, I purchased the following elevated bowl (and yes, the large which turns out is kinda small):


u/OmegaSeven · 1 pointr/aww

So like one of those bowl lift things for large breed dogs that have back and neck issues?

Like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0015QC4SO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_hBlnybRM3PX4Q

u/BadWolf_Bae · 1 pointr/WhatsWrongWithYourDog

They have tall stands for dog bowls. I'd suggest something like this so he can't flip it. It's also supposed to help with gas.

u/adamsorkin · 2 pointsr/Greyhounds

I use this one. It's not what I would call cute, and I don't particularly love it, but my notoriously picky greyhound (who will not eat off the floor, or out of smaller bowls) likes it.

u/Baconsnake · 2 pointsr/BostonTerrier

He's adorable! One thing that you should try is to raise the level of the food bowl. This has helped Rex immensely and prevents most of the hiccups that he was getting that would sometimes go too far and have him throw up.

We have one similar to this, which is just a 4" rise.

Give it a try!

u/FinancyMan · 1 pointr/pics

It looks like a bowl from one of those "unspillable" dog food trays....

Something like this:

u/fluttershy123 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Congrats! Purple Penguin

Under $15 my puppy's bowls are currently on the floor and I can tell he doesn't like extending his neck to drink and eat food.

Cheap item for $1.13

u/je_taime · 2 pointsr/Greyhounds

Originally, it was this 16-inch one, easy to wash!, easy to pack and travel with, but we switched to a custom wall-mounted unit. Our guest Greyhounds eat out of these if they are used to raised feeders at home.

u/vgr1 · 1 pointr/Rabbits

What Heyoz said. My girlfriend’s bother uses a stand like this & this. Might not work if you have a giant rabbit and small dog :)

u/push_forward · 1 pointr/Zoomies

Here ya go for the Amazon link. The words I googled were “raised dog bowl and storage” :)

u/bossbellini · 3 pointsr/bernesemountaindogs

We have one of those that you can adjust the height, like this one. Ours has been sitting at 40cm (15in) since she was around 8 months old.

u/Skynt87 · 2 pointsr/crochet

Amazon! There are a ton of options when you search raised dog bowls. This one is adjustable to different heights. We have an 8 month Goldendoodle. She needed something off the floor, but we also have a collie/pit mix who is 15 years old. So, we have his set to a shorter position.

u/davethemacguy · 2 pointsr/greatpyrenees

I also bought a standup bowl holder than worked (until the golden stopped being an idiot)

Like this:


u/GlitterDonkey · 4 pointsr/DogCare

I use this to feed my two dogs. You can raise/lower the bowls separately.

u/SlightlySlizzed · 1 pointr/Bulldogs

I would suggest a an elevated doggie bowl like this one. It makes them eat slower and also they ingest less air once they are eating which means less farts. Baby wipes for folds and butts. Socialize with other dogs and people often, one of mine wasn't and is kind of dog aggressive; he's 7 now. No long hikes or walks especially on really hot days, they easily overheat and i've read plenty of times, even on this subreddit, of deaths.

u/88lamb · 1 pointr/Greyhounds

We love our Neater Feeder because our pup is a very sloppy eater... but my inlaws got this one for our tall guy.
Ours has trouble eating off the floor

u/tsJIMBOb · 1 pointr/videos

I'm with ya. I had to get the less aesthetic more sturdy one though. My dog figured out how to screw even that one up.
