Hmmmm,your skunk mixture works?

when my boy was young he got nail good from mr stinky,we were duck hunting near milan mn,camped on the river,dang pup had stinky yellow pizzz all over his face,must of got a good whiff of my skunk anal region.

thru the pup in the back of my truck and headed to town,had dawn dish soap in camp,but was told tomato juice is the ticket,bought 2 gallons of it,at camp threw mr stinky in the river,scubbed with dawn,then poured all the tomato juice on him.still stunk to high heaven,so not a chance camping with mr skunk dog we headed back home,called the vet...barr none this worked on the spot...."skunk off" he also gave me a small spray bottle of this juice  incase I got sprayed,that was 20 years ago and many skunks later,great stuff

I believe ya mike as others have claimed the same,just not in my case I like the immediate effect of skunk off even after stapling the stink in with dish soap,vet asked me if I had used anything else,and he smiled when I gave him the run down,plus I'm sure he(vet) got a whiff on my new manly toilet water on my boots/clothes.

plus other dog handlers claim female FDS works wonders as well,never went there in my case.

LP,

Curious if cooper rolls in your meadow pies? or eats them as well.I had one golden that loved green/brown steaming hot pies from the long faces in the barn,just nasty rolling in those clumps.  dead fish was a gimmy as well,gotta get that stink on.

Cooper hasn't rolled in them much lately.  If he does we go right to the outdoor faucet and hose him down.  He does munch on the hard ones at times.  I have used the soap, peroxide, warm water for skunks a few times and it works great. My go to method of choice.

Hey Hey glenn your the one that ordered a case of anti "poop" eating bi- product trying to kick the habit.

Yup bobber,seems all my boyz over the past 50 years like to roll in stink,everyone loved rotting dead fish along lakeshore walks...lol,gotta love em regardless.

PS, nice n easy to use "skunk off"  one just spray's (spray bottle) the effected area,no hosing the pup down,just easy peasy,works on contact.

Now that spring has sprung,snow melted away,darn pup's alway's find new smells,they can't help what they do,the stinkier the better.

SO the new Cooper and Buddy project is to weigh them.  I am getting closer to success.  I am trying to get Cooper to stand on the scale first with his front legs and then his back legs.  He keeps sitting down when I do the back legs so not completely on the scale.  I will wait and have the wife help.  Her touch helps.

Yup Snow using the bathroom scale.  It helped with him on leash and both of us to keep the scale in the right spot.  Buddy did it like a pro.  Maybe his previous owners did it like that???   Cooper is about 80 and Buddy is now the little guy at 71.   It was sort of a rodeo so will do it again sometime.  lol

LOL  Exactly.  We were both laughing.  She wondered what was up when she saw the bathroom scale in the front room when she came in after work.  Always a circus..

In the magic mixture we forgot the baking soda.  SO peroxide, baking soda, dish soap and water.

The trouble with the new Ranger is that he comes running and jumps in when he hears it turning over.  I have to kick him out so the gets some excercise sometimes.  Him and the wife are going to have to fight over who gets to ride with me.  They both jumped in the other day and I broke out laughing and looked at her and said you two have to decide who's boss of the situation.  She bent her legs so Cooper and her fit.  That won't last long though and she will toughen up on the issue.   :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

lol  yes I measure it out too.  He gets 2 cups twice a day.  Buddy is 12 now so only gets 1 cup twice a day.  They both get a treat or two daily also.

Looks like Cooper is heavier than shadow?? :scratch: shadow is tall!!

How much do you feed cooper, LPS? Shadow gets 2 cups twice a day!!

Maybe I should give him more,  :scratch: maybe then he won't eat the fish I took out last night!! :confused: :angry2: training-087 training-087 :banghead: :banghead:

Read what I said to Dotch Glenn. 2 cups twice a day.  It was up to 6 cups a day when he was an older pup.
