      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Bladder & Bowel control or just controlling me?

Recommended Posts

I have a 12 week old Yellow lab, she doesn't have accidents anymore when in the house socializing with the family or playing around inside with me as she lets us know when she has to go by going to the door and whining. However, when I leave her in her kennel (Wire one with adjustable sizing piece which is set to allow just enough room for her to turn around) for more than 3 hours or so she occasionally pees or sometimes poops in it. Very frustrating since I get up with her whenever she yelps at night, which lately at night can be 2-3 times a night depending on what time I go to bed. So every 3-4 hours. When I take her out in the night like that, she does go pee and/or poop, so I believe she is telling me she has to go when she yelps. Especially when the few times I didn't get up she pooped in the kennel. So, needless to say "I believe her" when she yelps. But when will she begin better control? Getting up every 3 hours for the last 5 weeks has been just short of torture.

Also, I take away her water at about 7:00 pm and I feed her her evening meal at about 5:00 to 5:30 so I make sure she poops before bed at night. I feel I'm doing everything right so maybe I'm just impatient....or is she controlling me?

Any thoughts/feedback?

It takes a good 16 weeks for dogs to have full control of their bladders and BM's. Sounds like she is making good headway in alerting you to the fact she has to go.... maybe move her evening feeding time back another hour, or increase her morning feeding and decrease her evening feeding.... At 12 weeks though some accidents can still be expected from dogs...

Good Luck!

I had the same trouble until i changed dog food. She would poop (lab) in the morning right away but wouldn't be able to make it through day when i got home. So i swithed dog food to Sensible choice and it is suppose to take longer to digest. Now she can go a whole 12-14 hours and not go. I don't know if that is good for a dog but it beats cleaning up when i get home.

I wondered if food was the culprit also. We're feeding her Diamond brand puppy formula becasue that's what the breeder was using. I was told a lamb and rice might help slow some of that down. She poops about 5 times a day now on two feedings an AM & a PM.
