Dog treats for mother dog? Answered

Hi, people! My dog, Dale (named after Dale Evans) has had a litter of puppies in a cat/dog house! There is a sad part: All but one died because of the cold winter. That one that survived was the runt of the litter. That runt is now a chunk, because she has all the milk to her self, and she is a little bundle of cuteness! We named her Bailey..... anywho, moving right along, does anybody have a recipie for dog treats-for a nursing mother dog? I can't give them to Bailey because she is only 3 weeks old today (March 6, 2012, Born Feb. 21, 2012) and not weaned. Thanks! I might put a picture of them together.

A Dog's Dogbot

Dogs are great pets, I love them, but some people don't have the time to take care of a real dog so they buy a robotic one. There's a little bit of a disconnect between owning a living creature and a rechargable machine - but the desire is there.The sad thing is that we all have to go to school/work sometimes and so occasionally our dogs must fend for and entertain themselves, but what if there was a robotic YOU that could keep the dog company while you fulfill your obligations to society?A robotic dog companion could play chase, hide and seek, maybe feed the dog if you forget, train the dog using your own voice, throw a ball and if it was a Roomba it could even vacuum up the dog hair as it goes.You could even make a custom dog suit to outfit your iCreate with... and it be could pink - which is something you probably shouldn't do to your real dog.I'm having visions of coming home to an iCreate firmly entrenched in a happy set of canine teeth... haha... but then you could just have the iCreate say "Bad dog! Bad dog!"As I mentioned in my previous post, I'm getting really excited by all the ideas floating around in this contest and I want to thank iRobot for providing us the opportunity to build upon the amazing work they've done bringing robots to the masses. :)

Dog arthritis

A TABLE SPOON OF WHITE VINEGAR + A TABLE SPOON OF APPLE CIDAR OVER THEIR MEAL ONCE A DAY. It's worked on German Shepherds + Rottweilers and thru personal experience it worked on my Bull Terrier. My Bully would rip around the beach for a few hours having a ball, then she couldn't move for 2 or 3 days without pain. Try it, it worked for my 2 year old Bully and she was moving ok and pain free for her next 11 years. CHEAP and hopefully it will work for you. Cats and other animals i don't know.

BARKING NEIGHBOURS DOG

Dog over the road has been barking since it could bark, 2 1/2 yrs. I have talked to the owner and they have a collar to help control barking but very rarely use it these days and just let the dog bark. Dog barks at the postman on motorbike, anyone walking down street, other dogs, when I go out to the front garden or the lettebox. I use to always go over and talk to dog, pat her and give her meat bones, but these days she just annoys me with her continual barking The local Shire ranger has rang the owner about the dog only to be abused on the phone. Can anyone give some suggestions on what to do please. Margaret

Hey everyone. I'm working on an instructable which will end up on a dog or cat collar. Problem is, I don't have either. I'm looking for someone to volunteer their cat or dog's name for the tag I'm making. I'll send it to you and hope that in return you'll provide a picture of your pet wearing it for the instructable. If you're up to it, upload a picture (below in the comments) of your pet with this post in the background . I'll use the first pet posted. Thanks Brent.

Dog bark sensor

Hello!  I'm looking to experiment with a DIY dog bark control/training system, but I'm not sure where to start on the bark sensing front.  I know that commercial bark control collars (don't worry -- I'm not building a shock collar) use a combination of mics and vibration sensors together to reduce false positives and prevent the system from triggering if it is another dog doing the barking.  Any ideas how I could build something that performs a similar function?

Airplane dog carrier

I want some ideas that you may have for a carrier. background: I want to bring my Dog on an airplane but he can't ride in cargo because there is a summer ban on dogs during hot months. I must fly before the end of the ban. The airline will allow a dog in the cabin in a soft carrier, if the dog and carrier are less than 10kg. My dog is 7kg so the carrier can be up to 3kg. It must be 27cm high 40cm wide and 55 cm long or smaller problems: the foot print is fine for my dogs they could lay down comfortably, but the height is small. I want to make a telescoping carrier so it can fit under the seat on the plane, but can open up for comfort in the airport and when moving. Any ideas are welcome and I'll post it as my first instructable once I make it thanks http://www.aircanada.com/en/travelinfo/airport/baggage/pets.html

Stanley Coren's new book, a Klutz-look-alike, comes with a custom stop watch to test your dog's intelligence.

Refrigerated Dog Bed

Ahoy-hoy, My first post on Instructables! Anyhow, we own a 10-month old Great Pyrenees and live in the drought stricken and warm Southern California climate. As summer approaches we have been looking at options to help keep her cool and we haven't had the greatest of luck with cooling beds available on the market, our Coonhound tore up the first one as a 50 lb pup during his first summer. I was thinking about potentially re-purposing an old mini-fridge coolant system into a cooling bed. My very initial thoughts are as follows: 1. Salvage working mini-fridge 2. Disassemble cooling system 3. Create bed surface using sheet metal (our Pyr won't sleep on the any of the multiple plush beds available to her, only concrete or dirt) 4. Create mount base for bed, ideal scenario would have a force sensitive switch that would only turn on refrigeration unit when dog is on the bed. 5. Thermally attach refrigerator expander coils to the underside of the bed, most likely via solder but could bolt together with thermally conductive paste 6. Rig up an enclosure and support structure for the compressor, heat exchange coils, and electronics. I imagine the bed surface resembling the weight scales at the vet but with some provisions to attach a padded fabric cover. Things to be addressed: 1. Ensuring proper temperature regulation...she has a thick durable coat but don't want to over due things. Temperature feedback shouldn't not be too much of a hurdle using an Arduino or using the existing "twisty-turny" nob in the fridge 2. Properly disassembling the salvaged fridge, don't want to unnecessarily release the refrigerant and defeat the whole purpose 3. Make this thing sturdy enough to survive the wear and tear of one and/or probably two 85 lb plus dogs Is this too far fetched (no pun intended, my dogs aren't retrievers)? Any thoughts and advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Rich
