"Thanks for the reply. Holly is on grain free and I'm thinking of having her on a Raw diet or at least 1/2 being a raw mix."

"Sometimes my corgis have messy butts.  I consider that a complication of having fluffs.  I do not plan on changing their diet.  When it seems to be happening more often, it means I need to trim them up with the grooming scissors.…"

"Great meeting you and looks like you keep late or early hours? :-) The only reason I wet her kibble was I guess the idea that dry kibble sticks to their teeth and causes tartar. I will stop that and just continue with the can food, but maybe switch…"

"France. :) But anyway, I would start with the least dramatic change. Is there a reason you include wet with her kibble, aside from flavour? She should be hydrated enough provided that there is a constant supply of fresh water. Going raw is a huge…"

"Thanks! Where are you at? I'm in Kansas and it is 8 pm here. I'll try the pumpkin then all raw--chicken and not beef. Last resort she will have a bare bottom and I will use a high pressured hose to clean her. OK, just kidding!"

"Oh goodness, this gave me a hearty belly laugh at 2:30 AM. The idea of a corgi-baboon was too much for me to handle! :D   As for loose stools, Ace has an issue with them when he gets fatty treats or foods the day before. He is on a fully raw…"

Messy Butt

Does anyone have the problem of constantly having to clean their dog's butt? I'm not talking diarrhea, but stools that are soft enough that on the way out catch on her hair. I have trimmed a little around her behind, but don't want to make her look like a baboon.Holly is free of worms, so that is not the problem. Until recently she was fed a mixture of Wellness dry (water added) and a couple spoonfuls of Wellness canned beef dog food---all grain free. I have switched her to Nutri Source Grain…See More

Choice of Collars

I'm sure this subject has come up before, but couldn't find what  you like best for stopping a puller. Holly is 4 1/2 months and I know a lot of it is puppy and being excited when she goes out for walks . We are fine after she settles down with just a plain nylon collar, but going to puppy obedience class or  being around other poeple or dogs---no way! I got the Sporn No Pull Harness and at first it seemed to work, but now she pulls like a husky in it. I know to release when she gives in and…
