Re: Mowgli (J&J Sitting Bull)

Mowgli will be 17 weeks on Tuedsday. We've been taking him to puppy kindergarten classes for the past few weeks and he loves it! Our trainer makes a comment every week about how smart he is, and the humans in class (especially the wee ones) think he's just so purdy! We've only had a few people ask i...

Mowgli likes to pick up deer poop. I hardly notice when he does it on walks - the little sneak! He still gobbles down his food though.

Re: Eating too fast

We usually use the first half of Mowgli's meals as treats for training, and then put the rest in the Kong wobbler. He LOVES the wobbler, and I love that it slows down his eating, makes him think a bit, and uses up some energy during meal times. http://www.amazon.com/Kong-Wobbler-Treat-Dispensing-Lar...

Decided we're not going to try to tackle raw feeding to begin with, but instead feed Taste of the Wild. Those of you who feed TOTW, did you start off with the puppy formula, or just jump in with the adult? There are so many varieties - want to make sure I get the best for our little guy. :)
