Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Anyone have a Chow Hound?!    Tue Jul 09, 2013 5:40 am

For all of you out there having problems with your huskies not eating I am sorry to post this, but my husky will not stop eating! Orion is a complete fat boy when it comes to his food I timed him tonight - a bone in chicken thigh took just over 30 seconds. He is ridiculous, during training he will literally drool while watching treats in your hand.
Since he gulp most of his food he gives himself hiccups after almost every meal is this doing him any harm? Is there a supplement or something I could give to aid his digestion to help his poor tummy out?
Also any idea'a on how to train begging & counter surfing out of him? If I am cooking he will stay out of the kitchen but as soon as I am out he is searching for anything he can get off the bench. His begging is worse than the counter surfing - he will jump on you if you sit on the couch with food etc. It is getting to the point we have to tether him or shut him out of the room if we are eating and if we do either he screams bloody murder!

Any idea's would be greatly appreciated!

Dont have anything to suggest just wanted to say I have a similiar problem and will watch your post. Bella and Jasper get pn my counters all the time and try stealing things, Bellas favorite is the butter Jasper the weirdo will drink the dirty dish water. My 3 yr old nephew has decided he has to tacle them when he sees them on the counter while yelling noooooooo dog dog! Noooo doooo it! They also take food from my nephew. If we ignore them long enough they will lay down but it takes an avaerage of 15 minutes or longer.

Mishka is the same way. We can't sit down on the couch with food or drinks because he will jump all on us. And he's also terrible with counter surfing. Thankfully I have learned to put everything all the way to the back of the counter where he can't get it but he jumps up on the counter (not full body!) at least 3-5 times a day looking for stuff and just licking the counters. I have tried making loud noises, banging pots, etc. to try to scare him off, but I usually have to tell him off and down a few times before he gets down.

When he's really bad I just lock him out of the kitchen or in the kitchen depending on where we want to eat.
