Today was a big step and it almost made me cry. For the first time sense having Titan, I got kisses! Just a quick little lick on my nose but kisses none the less. It's a good day.

Look how Handsome!

Well now, after all this work and after a bath and another long fight, I managed to get some quick pics of the good looking dober-man! Look at that beautiful shine on his coat! I really just can't believe it!

Here you can see him (don't mind all that art clutter in the background! lol) and his coat. You cal also see that mass on his chest. Currently that is just an empty sack like flap of skin. When we got him that was filled. (with what I don't know)

Thanks for all your support!

Raw Food

Well after doing some research and getting only half of what I wanted, I'm going to strike out and give this a try. Making homemade raw dog food. Lately I've been giving him beef added to his kibble. So now to save some money I'm going to try it. When I was buying the packaged chicken sticks I paid $20 for a 10 pound bag, well he needed to eat 2 ounces per ten pounds of body weight. So I went through that bag in less than 2 weeks!!!! That was way out of my budget. So while shopping at my local grocery store I priced beef that was on sale. I could get more than enough for a month of feeding with only about $25. So now he is getting beef with brown rice, and cooked veggies. Also I'm adding an oil supplement as well as a vitamin supplement. We will see how this goes over the next few weeks.

Progress, the Good and the Bad

Well let's start with the bad parts. Yesterday I let him out for his night time potty break and let him off leash like normal. He just runs out, pees, then comes charging back. Well this time he decided to take off and chase the geese that have taken up residents in our neighbors yard. I yelled and he ignored me. So we took the long way and I had to correct him back over every step he took. He knew he did wrong when I finally got to him, so at least thats some progress. So he is now grounded for a few days. Now onto the good news. During his training today I decided to start his off leash work, as well as a stand command. The stand command is confusing the daylights out of him so we will keep working on it. His off leash went amazingly. Even with the geese in the next yard. I am so proud of him. We will keep working and one of these days I'll convince my fiancee to come take some pics of him working. It's hard to do both at once. haha.

We figured out one Problem!

I finally figured out one of Titan's big issues. All this time I've been trying to get his coat nice and glossy. Nothing has worked. But because of something silly, I figured out how to fix it. No chicken! I switched him to an all red meat diet. I found this out because we ran out of the good chicken sticks we were feeding him and gave him hamburger meat. After just 2 days of that his coat got this amazing shine! I was so excited.

Well I know it's been a while, and so much has happened. First of all my brother came to live with us for a little while. Titan did great, the boys got along well. There was one little step backwards. In light of Titan being, well not the brightest crayon in the box, my brother would say things while he was out. He used the dreaded stay word. So to stop the confusion before it started to badly I decided to go slack on some of my work. His training continued and he is at the point where I am starting the beginning stages of off leash. Thats not going so well sense the geese next door have decided to have these little fluffy babies. They drive him nuts. It's so funny from my point of view but it frustrates him to no end. So now that my brother has left and things are getting back to halfway normal I should be back to posting more. We did however have an amazing trip out to see a good friend. He had a blast on her farm. Today I'm considering taking him on a park adventure. I'll let you know how it goes.
