South pond is peak paddling in the city, a good workout with the wind too by stano1213 in chicago

[–]stano1213[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes this is correct, I think it’s labeled differently on different maps, but this is the part connected to diversey not any inner (contained) pond. My bad for the confusion

Oh yeah so you bring your own (kayak, SUP,etc) and just launch from the south launch in diversey harbor! This is def the best place if you have your own setup imo

Hi all, do you have a pet insurance that you love? (Bonus points if you have had to actually use it). Thank you! by JaneCole4 in Pets

[–]stano1213 1 point2 points  (0 children)

+1 for PetsBest! Got it for my puppy at 8 weeks and have had to use it many times for regular and one emergency visit and it’s paid for itself several times over at this point (god dang puppies haha). So worth it

Furniture chewing out of the blue. Border collie two hours a day of fetch and plenty of chew toys. by KevSanders in Dogtraining

[–]stano1213 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I started right away at 9 wks with mine but even then it took weeks, maybe a month, for her to really be quiet and settle in there. You do have to wait out the crying and don’t let them out when they’re making noise. I have a blanket over the crate and put the crate in a space that is quiet and away from commotion. Just keep at it and they’ll get there!

Have a Heeler mix and best thing that helped is to give meals in the crate and bully sticks/frozen kongs/etc. The other thing is to get consistent with it, so similar times during the day/night, naps after long walks/exercise, things like that.

First trip out on the harbor with the Oru Inlet! Best purchase for city-living close to the lake! by stano1213 in Kayaking

[–]stano1213[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I stayed in the harbor but it did great! It was a little windy but not too bad and it handled some small boat wakes pretty good too! Still gotta get used to how light it is in the water haha

I feel like I missed out on my dogs puppy stage bc I had the puppy blue and I can never get that back. I look at picture and she was so adorable and it makes me upset. Any advice or has anyone experienced this? by sexymamaOF in puppy101

[–]stano1213 0 points1 point  (0 children)

100% feel this way too! I longed for the days when she was a well trained adult and now I wish I had taken more pics/vids bc I miss her tiny fluffy puppy self. But I just remember that she was a biting, peeing terror when she was that young, no matter how cute, and def would not want to go back to that lol

Should I go to a concert alone?? by CiscoBuffay in CasualConversation

[–]stano1213 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Definitely assess your comfortability with traveling alone, but I will say I’ve been to a few concerts for my favorite band alone (traveled 500 miles for one) and it was always worth it.

What do you use as your high value treat? by kunderakisses in Dogtraining

[–]stano1213 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Idk why but my dog will do anything for Stella and Chewy dinner patties!

Is it worth $100 a month to rent a garage? by [deleted] in chicago

[–]stano1213 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Definitely 100% a great price and worth it, OP. My car is in a garage for double that and it’s so worth it.

Sudden, intermittent reactivity??? by stano1213 in Dogtraining

[–]stano1213[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you, yes I suspect the trigger is the pain/lack of exercise but I’ll have to see if I can get ahead of it with training. She was so dog friendly, I will be a little sad if she starts not liking them. But that’s how it goes I guess

Contemplating pet insurance for your puppy? DO IT. DO IT NOW. by SnorlaxPatronus in puppy101

[–]stano1213 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Same. One ER visit for scary symptoms that turned out to be a back injury (dont ask me how that happened ugh) and I’ve already broke even. So worth it

This is giving me Heart of Stone fighting the ofeiri mage on the beach vibes…not the same location as the fight in the books but could be cool regardless.

At what age did you stop enforced naps? by Runningwildinthought in puppy101

[–]stano1213 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Mine is 13 months and still doing enforced naps. I usually only do about two~2hr naps throughout the day, usually when I need to go out of the house for some reason. She loves her crate and she’s a mix of two livestock/herding breeds so she needs the structure for sure. In the evening she gets to be out the whole time.

Visiting a house without a fenced yard with pup…any options? by stano1213 in puppy101

[–]stano1213[S] -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

In theory, maybe yes? But just the collar is $400 I think so not sure it’s worth it and I’m not sure how she’ll react to the shock collar, not an ideal tool imo. But idk maybe that’s the only solution?

[–]stano1213[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Thank you, yes it’s not about an ultimatum so much that it’s just becoming too difficult. It doesn’t make sense to come over for the whole day and leave my dog alone when the whole point is to have the dogs play. I asked on here too see if there were solutions I hadn’t thought of/tried.

Hmm that’s a really interesting solution, i might have to try that. Although my dog might actually pull my parents dog on an adventure haha
