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.

Where did you get the ProClean Waterless Whitening Shampoo? Can't seem to find it online. Thanks.

That would be because I got the name of it all wrong! Sorry! It's Pro-line Self Rinse Plus.

Rachel, I'm glad the article was helpful. And what a lovely lady!! That is a really helpful reply and it's good to know that you can talk to someone else who has been through the same thing. Yay! Very Happy

I don't know about the bath. Does he need one that bad? We don't bathe Ghost very often as he doesn't really need it. We brush him a lot but the dirt seems to just fall off. It's probably better to leave it until he is more settled, unless he really stinks.

I dunno about the bath. You want to do it outside with a hose correct? My only worry is a wet soapy dog is really hard to hold on to. Can you bathe him in your shower instead? That's where I bathe my two. Siku is such a baby with cold water, but just fine with warm water. How dirty is he? I'm thinking right now, you may want to wait, cause I can see that really freaking him out. They make dry shampoo and wipes you could use instead. I have a big jug of proclean waterless whitening shampoo. I put it in a spray bottle and spray down their legs (I've only used it on their legs, cause I just throw them in the shower if I need to do more) till it's all sudsy and work it into the fur with my hand and then take a clean towel and wipe it off. It take a lot of dirt off! The towel usually looks black where I've rubbed the stuff off.

The rapidbath is the best invention ever! We can bathe Kya in literally 5 minutes. It does take 2 of us though because she HATES baths.

It's quick, easy and convenient. Can use it outside AND in the shower!

Hello I am new to the forum.

I have just recently rescued a Siberian Husky/Alaskan Malamute mix name Lex and at only 3 months seems to have the same problem. He won't go 5 feet from the door and just stops in the driveway and wants to return home. Today I have started to drop his leash and go forward, he chase right behind me if I've gotten a bit away, he'll follow me if he sees a reward if we go further though but we haven't even made it to the end of the street. I don't know what to do. Please Help and I'll be eternally grateful.

Sincerely Amy S.

This post is great. I have a 6 month old (Cash) who is scared of strangers on our walks. He LOVES kids and has no problems walking (slight pulling) but if someone wants to talk to me or talk to him, he backs up and tries to run. I've tried treats and it doesn't seem to work well. I finally got him to sit by my side today but that took a LONG time. Any suggestions?
