Having trouble with ACA………………..?

Question by Znip Sero Sero: Having trouble with ACA………………..?
I’m going to an ACA dog show to show in obedience, rally, & agility. I emailed ACA and ICA (ICA is the sponsor for the performance events, but it’s a ACA show) and asked “What obstacles are in the agility course? What levels in agility? What levels for obedience? Will there be open obedience?”

I sent it more than once and waited; no response!

So, anyone know anything about ACA obedience and agility?

Oh, and the reasons i’m going (not to support ACA o’course): Grandparents literally live nextdoor to the show site and they’re 3 hours away so we don’t see them that often, I have a UKC agility trial the next weekend and I need practice (i don’t take classes) and it’s only $ 5 per dog to enter all 3 obed., rally, and agility.
I’ve sent atleast 5 emails. Waaay before the holidays, during the holidays, and after. I’m starting to get really ticked with them!
Oh, there’s supposed to be a lot of 4H kids there, so anyone know what a 4H agility course is like?
Oh, Texas Rottie: Wouldn’t it be a long distance call?
ACA has *crap* (nothing!) no info in their website! I googled, I yahood, and I asked! Nothing!
WyrDachs: Yes, it is ACA show but ICA is the one actually doing the performance parts, ACA is putting on conformation and other stuff.

It’s probably that they aren’t very good at answering emails. It could be they are out of town for the holiday. Could be many things. Is there a phone number listed on the advert?

What is the ACA? I thought it was an obedience/agility club.

Dog Sense: How the New Science of Dog Behavior Can Make You A Better Friend to Your Pet

Dogs have been mankind’s faithful companions for tens of thousands of years, yet today they are regularly treated as either pack-following wolves or furry humans. The truth is, dogs are neither–and our misunderstanding has put them in serious crisis. What dogs really need is a spokesperson, someone who will assert their specific needs. Renowned anthrozoologist Dr. John Bradshaw has made a career of studying human-animal interactions, and in Dog Sense he uses the latest scientific research to sh

Question by : Are The Dog Treat “Pig Ears” Bad For Your Dog?
Okay, so my puppy is 15 – 16 weeks old now. My mom was told about the treat Pig Ears. We got 1 just to try and see how they agreed with his stomach and bowels. The first pig ear was great. No loose bowels or puking because of them. He seems to digest them fine. There a very good treat because he’s a pretty bad chewer, so they keep him busy. Takes him about all day to finish one with the breaks, walks, bathroom, kennel things like that. I don’t know much about the dog treat but I just read up online about them and apparently they’re high in fat, which can cause issues in dogs.
-How many should he have a week? He’s about 10 pounds if that makes a difference.
-Are they bad for him? He’s not showing any bowel issues or stomach issues.
-Should we keep giving them to him?

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Answer by Labman
Yes, they are high in fat and excess fat is bad for dogs. But that is a long term problem. Short term is tearing off a piece and bolting it down and blocking the dog’s airway or intestines. Keep a close eye on chew toys and quickly discard anything that is coming apart in pieces. Rawhide is especially bad because it swells after being swallowed. I don’t trust any of the consumable chews. The dogs just gnaw them down to a dangerous size too quickly.
