Dog Talk

(Lafayette, indiana)


My daughter and I were watching TV, when our Great pyrenees, Athena, who is 5 months old now, started growling at our other dog, (but in a playful matter), when all of a sudden she started making these really strange noises as if she were talking!! We couldn’t stop laughing!!! Is this a normal trait? She’s never done this before.

Thank You!

Talking
by: Donna

It's something any breed will do. Huskies are really good at 'talking'.

We call it vocalizing
by: Jeanette

Milo " says" hello like this hah roe. He says whoo. How . As I walk to the door to see who it is how about that I say. So he says who how.

Milo says why why why at other times when he is puzzled while learning something new. Or if it takes too long to put his food bowl onto the floor.

He winks one eye in return to my winking one eye. The elderly at the nursing home think he is so cute. When he does this .

Milo is my daughters service dog . He is pyrenee x St. Bernard x white Labrador. In dec of 2017 he will be 3. We got him at age 18 months old from a no kill shelter. He is such a blessing

ear problems
by: Anonymous

Howard, our Pyr had the same issues.
Our dog had these issues when we got him at 8 weeks old. Vet gave us antibiotic ear creams which never cured the problem. We researched everything we could find, but were pretty sure this was caused by a sensitivity to his food, as he was also a very picky eater. Tried every brand of kibble out there. Then Origen Red came on the market. It's meat source is wild meat, fruit, no grains. It comes vacuum packed. Make sure when you buy it that the vacuum is intact. It's expensive, but worth every penny. Within days of starting him on this diet, our dog's ears started to look better and the condition disappeared. He hasn't had a single problem since. This food is very dense, so a little goes a long way. He's been on it for over 2 yrs. and his body condition is perfect. And although this is controversial, yearly injections can also cause health issues.
If feeding raw food is not a problem for you, you can find detailed info on this site. Your meat source should be organic and fresh.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
