Re: Silver fox -- How to work with the urine odor! Help!

Those are beautiful options! I'll have to show them to him. The dogs do not get unsupervised outside time. One of our dogs is an eskimo and they can be a bit... loud... at times. She also likes to dig holes if left unattended. Besides, I don't like to leave dogs out alone anyway because of any numbe...

Re: Silver fox -- How to work with the urine odor! Help!

Taj's Mom andCrafty, you are really lucky Loki and Taj's urine hasn't smelled skunky. Lucy's has, strongly, since the very beginning. What do you feed them? Do you think this is based more on diet or genes? Taj's Mom, I'm sorry if you already said but is your husband against the outdoor environment...

Re: How common is sitting to be pet or picked up?

Taj sits for food and treats, but doesn't like us coming towards us when we're standing up, I think he thinks we're going to put him away.

Re: Silver fox -- How to work with the urine odor! Help!

I've heard that but do they always smell like skunk? Taj's urine doesn't really smell that much most of the time. Occasionally it gets really bad, but I just change the blankets in his crate every other day and the pee pads when he goes on those and that pretty much takes care of it. We have a lot o...

Re: Photos of my Lucy!

In Michigan, skunks have to be Michigan-bred. I briefly considered getting a skunk and found out the hard way there are exactly two breeders in Michigan, well, I don't even know if you'd consider Zak a breeder. I'm almost positive he gets his babies from the one breeder I know of and then doubles th...

Re: Training Red foxes to go outside?

I've heard arctics are easier to train to go outside, but it seems like most people litter train reds. Taj is trained to use pee pads like my dogs, and he used to love going potty outside (when he still wanted to go outside).

We have the vest/mesh type harness, I think it's called, and Taj loved it until just recently when he decided he didn't want to wear a harness or go outside anymore... strange little guy

Re: Doin' The Happy Dance!!!!

Phew! Taj got out once and I panicked! Took forever to catch the little bugger, and it was only as he was trying to climb the neighbors wire fence that I was able to snag him, he was having such a GOOD time :)

Re: First time fox owner, LOTS of questions.

Viltor, I hear you on the allergies. I'm allergic to our dogs and my fox, Taj. Hence the sweeping every day, mopping twice and week, and washing our sheets every other night (and their's, but in separate loads). Granted our little dogs are chinese cresteds and I don't react to those, but our two big...

Re: Lucy chews off all her collars and harnesses!

That stinks that she chews through everything! When Taj was smaller, he'd steal the dog leashes and chew those apart, but he's left his collar alone. I try to keep it nice and snug, so that he can't get his little jaws around it. It's got his i.d. tag and rabies tag off, but I'm afraid if I put his ...

Re: October Crazies

Yeah, Allyson, that's why I walk Taj at night. I've only received a couple negative reactions, and that was from a couple of the family members who know, but we have a neighbor who probably wouldn't hesitate to call AC even though it's completely legal, and try to cause trouble for us. It's not wort...

Re: October Crazies

Taj is pretty much the same so far, except that I used to take him outside at night to run around but now he refuses to let me put his harness on and take him out. Nothing scary happened with it, but he won't come up to me when I'm holding on to it like he used to.

Just because I think he's the cutest little guy since... well... ever :) His favorite position on the couch: flopped over right next to me on his back with my finger in his mouth... weird little booger. http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a191/amaseya/IMG_0676.jpg http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a19...

... I don't know what came over him, my hubby is usually really even-tempered and accepting. He doesn't have the bond with Taj that I have, but I think that's because I'm the main caretaker for all the animals. Does anyone have any suggestions? Right now my handsome little monster is laying on his ...

Re: Taj pictures :) and an update

Okay, frustration time. Can anyone help? Submission urination. Do they get better with this with age? Taj has been HORRIBLE lately. Sure, when we get home, he pees when he sees us. Sees the dogs, pees. Gets a treat, pees. Gets his dinner, pees. Plays with a toy, pees. Dog walks by him, pees, we pet ...
