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.

Having some problems with Destiny's attitude towards kids and babies. Storm loves them all to pieces, he will lick the crap outta them and snuggle them, then leave them alone. Destiny however, she follows them around the house, gets jealous when my boyfriend and I are holding a baby, is always in the kids face, and she will nip just in front of their hands or feet. She will also tense up if they go near her food. She did have puppies in June, and she was pretty much the same way with them, minus the jealousy. From what I had researched and talked to my vet about, that was normal, and how she trained them. We have been having children around a lot more these days, and we need to break her of this before her nips become bites and someone gets hurt.

Make sure every time she is around a child she gets a treat. (not if she is nipping obviously). If you feel it's safe, and its a dog savvy kid, let the kid give her the treat. When I adopted my greyhounds years ago the girl was grumpy around my kids. She got somewhat nippy--so we nipped it in the bud lol. We did the nilf thing, making my kids take turns feeding her meal one kibble at a time. She was 2 when adopted and a retired racing greyhound, never been around kids. In the end they could dress her in clothes, play with her, lay on her anything, she grew to love all their love and attention. Good luck. Just be careful and really watch her.
