Strange Breathing Doberman - Please Help With Any Suggestions Does anyone know what might be the cause of this breathing? We adopted "Harley" (a 6 month old doberman puppy) from the shelter. She had a bad history. From a puppy-mill, lived in a 4X4 crate with 6 siblings, largely neglected and under-exercised. Because of her unknown history, we are praying that she has good health, but only time will tell. Here is a video of her making some really strange breathing sounds while sleeping. We have a vet appointment scheduled in a few days but wanted to see if anyone had any ideas. When she awoke she seemed ok and now seems fine, though, this isn't the first time we've seen her do this in her sleep. Is this normal? Any help is highly appreciated. We have a vet appt scheduled by are wondering if this might be an emergency situation?

How Balanced Dogs Act The vast majority of dogs in the USA and abroad are stressed and under exercised. People are so used to it that they deem the hyper, and disrespectful behaviors as "normal" for a dog. This video clip shows how balanced dogs act. In the morning when I first got out of bed and came downstairs. The dogs are not used to me standing there looking at them, I usually go about my morning when coming down. Spencer the Pit Bull gets up to say "Hello". Bruno does not even get up. They are calm and happy. Not hyper. The clip also shows how they act when being fed. I had to put the camera down a few times as I was preparing food and filming at the same time and sometimes needed two hands. The dogs are calm, relaxed, happy and respectful. It's not normal for dogs to be hyper and tense, although unfortunately due to the way dogs are not getting their instincts met, most dogs in the USA and abroad are not balanced. If we humans want to keep an animal captive we have an obligation to give them what they instinctually need as the animal that they are. See more of Bruno the Boxer and Spencer the Pit Bull at .
Klute - Torrential Pain feat. Moocha LP: Commercial Suicide Lyrics: #-------------------# "I once whistled at the sparrow hawk he tried to walk so, wings I grew and I flew away the air was filled with ocean spray and the ocean filled with rain And my wings under exercised for the speed of my flight were under strain, they began to ache with tremendous pain so I dropped and dived into the deep blew rain and I never emerged I never flew again, it is here I remain I'm just swimming in the rain, just swimming in the rain, it's a glorious feeling I am happy again." Thanks to Moocha for the Lyrics! ;)

Spike behaving badly ...he's not normally this bad. Really. But the tumour bleeds like whoa if he plays fetchy so there is no fetchy, therefore he's underexercised and punchy. Also, my Mum always winds my dogs up something rotten. Also, yes, my flat is a scruffy mess. Deal with it XD

#3 Layla - modifying 'jumping up behavior' session #3 of 6 Session #3 - Because the owner had the flu this past week, Layla did not get the exercise or training from session #2, so I adjusted our plan for session #3. We added 'outdoor' environmnet which is always more exciting. We added 'milling children and people' for distractions. Layla was C/T for any behavior she offered me, including looking and/or interacting with another person. Layla was LOADED with energy this morning and we noticed that she had some new triggers - 1. owner/handler reaction - she would jump if the owner handler moved hand or arm, so we worked on that a bit when she was ready. 2. Because Layla was under exercised, her moving excited her to much and we wanted to keep her successful, so her movement was kept to a minimum. 3. Layla has had very little contact with scooters and/or skateboards. We had the children use them but at a distance unless they approached slowly. 4. Layla tried 'face launching' everytime someone laughed. The owner said he has noticed this before. So I laughed 'lightly' a couple of times when I saw her 'calm'. THis most definitely will need more work. OWNER HOMEWORK- 1. EXERCISE - this is a must with a young healthy adolescent dog, especially when modifying behaviors. A minimum of 2 hours of 'tongue draggin exercise everyday', dog-dog play in the yard does not count. 2. Layla needs to go into a busy people area everyday; markets, hardware stores, college campus. Everytime she passes a person or offers a behavior besides jumping, C/T ...
