   When they hear me   Cheesy

   The fish oil bottle shaking (they usually can tell if it is the fish oil or a vitamin bottle)

   Opening the resealable bag of doggy biscuits. (If I am in the kitchen and one dog comes to check out what I am doing I sometimes try and sneak whomever it is a biscuit without the others knowing as a "special" treat.  Wink  But if they hear the smacking of lips they all come running and everyone gets one.)

  The collars and leashes getting picked up.  I swear they can even hear this outside through the door when they are in the backyard.

  Yup, the puppy goes nuts if my wife or I walk into the house.  Its been a headache training her to calm down.   Angry

Its not fish oil, but it amazes me how dogs know the different sounds of medications in bottles.  Like they know if I'm getting an antacid or I'm getting them a liver treat---which to me both sound about the same.

Nothing seems to get him too excited except maybe when I'm chopping veggies.  He comes running when he hears the cutting board come out.  That and the sound of his liver treat canister.

Not sure. The dog physio said one. He's only 5 years old but always limps. So we've been to the vet and he doesn't know what it is, we have a physio work on him every now and then. He always chews his feet so im thinking it could be his feet, rather than the shoulder or something.

Does he chew them till they bleed?  Does he chew all of them?  Have you had his feet examined by a doc?

From Flower:

"Depending on the dosage per tablet, and the size of the dog, one may or may not be enough.  Without knowing that I  personally think a lab should get more than one a day going by what the average pill has in it.  And especially if the dog has a known joint/arthritis problem. 

The bottle should give a weight recommendation and list the ingredients per tablet which could be compared against other brands and dosage recommendations.  I would check that and up it if the dog is not responding to the current dosage. 

All joint sups are not created equal. Some contain more than just the common gluc/chondr supplements, combining other ingredients for inflammation etc., and can be cheaper than what you get from your vet.  Shop around and compare.  I use Joint Max TS (triple strength) for Emmett and feel we have gotten good results from it. There is Joint Max, and Joint Max DS for lower strengths.  Emmett being a Great Dane he gets 6 pills (chewable tablet form) daily as it is, so we need the triple strength!! "

ingredients in the TS:

Also from Flower re: Dakota's feet:

"The chewing of the feet I would wonder if he has a skin problem?  yeasty feet?  An allergy?   Could be diet related, or might be environmental allergens.

this link may give him some ideas to try or ask his vet about (it was directed about an Akita, but can apply to all dogs)":

Cool, thanks a lot STella and Flower.
I will look into perhaps giving him more gluc, see what the vet recommends.

In regards to his paws, i have found out that it is most likely an allergy. The vet was saying that it is common for some dogs to have a reaction to walking on wet buffalo grass. Being an outside dog and having a lawn covered in buffalo grass, it is pretty hard to keep him of it. Fortunately, he hasn't made them bleed. He just finished a course of antibiotic tablets and cream (for 2 weeks) that was going on his paws, but he is still chewing them. Maybe it will get better in a couple more weeks.

Either way we were kind of relieved that it looks like it isnt a joint problem.

Any sound!  All he needs to know is that I'm around.  He always wants to be held or petted, but if I'm busy, he sits patiently until he can get some attention.

However, "Potty" makes him spaz out like a hyper-active crack head!  This kid would go out and pee 37x a day if I'd let him!

All I have to say is a long, drawn out "WHOOOOOOOO"  and Buster & Maggie will perk up from a dead sleep even, because they know that we're going out to play or about to get a treat.   Grin
