Making squeeze treats better? [R]5 months, 3 weeks agoFoleyisGood posted submission on Dogtraining.
Oct. 11, 2019
I posted earlier about how to "treat" my shorty without killing my back and got lots of good tips. We are working on "catch" but in the meantime deploying wooden spoon and squeeze bottles. Both are good but have drawbacks. The bottle seems to have the most promise but it's hard to regulate amount and "flow". I was thinking of how to upgrade it and thought attaching a basting brush could help, something like this: The Sauce Tool Bottle Cap Basting Brush https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003CN5SKO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_SXtODbN00HS0G
I am also entertaining a sponge solution a la envelope moistener: Sparco Envelope Moistener, Bottle Type, Sponge Tipped (SPR01483), 4 Packs https://www.amazon.com/dp/B013KMS7MM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_rZtODbB30DN5N
My third option is a round bristle brush that I could drill through and apply plastic tubing.
Before going down this rabbit hole and spending tons of time and money, wondering if anyone has tried these or similar ideas? Am I crazy?
Oct. 12, 2019
You aren't crazy at all. Squeeze tubes are great! I use these: https://www.amazon.com/Humangear-GoToob-3-Pack-Large-Clear/dp/B002VS8H3G
You may need to make the opening a bit bigger by cutting away some of the plastic, aside from that it is good to go right out of the package.
I use peanut butter, whipped cream cheese, or mashed liverwurst (with some warm water mixed in).
Cheapest Training Treats?? [R]1 year, 5 months agoFoleyisGood posted submission on Dogtraining.
Oct. 24, 2018
Hey all, I'm looking for feedback on what brands and kinds of trainer treats you use. I've been working on loose leash training, which is going well besides the the rate at which I'm burning through my trainer treats!
I was given a bag of Zuke's minis when we adopted, and our pup seemed to really like them so I bought 3 lbs of it for $34 on Amazon. At $11/pound, this is the cheapest I have found Zuke's minis.
What is out there that might be a bit cheaper per pound but still retains decent quality and your dog still gobbles up? I'd like to find that happy medium of price and quality and I hope $11/lb isn't as good as it gets!

Hot dogs or Kielbasa - dehydrate by cooking slow at low temp in the oven.
Cheese - cut into small pieces
Squeeze tubes filled with mashed liverwurst (add little bit of water at a time until it is smooth enough to go through the hole), whipped cream cheese or peanut butter.
Happy Howies is another good brand for a meat roll. They make beef, lamb, and I think turkey. Get yourself a vidalia onion chopper and use it to cut them into small pieces about the size of a pea.
Met with a trainer today! Completed a 20 minute walk!! [R]1 year, 6 months agothrowawayfortulip posted submission on reactivedogs.
Oct. 2, 2018
Background: My dog isn't reactive in the classic sense. She is however, very reactive in the FREEZE sense, to very strange stimuli. She will freeze sometimes because she sees bees (like three bees buzzing around a bush. she will NOT walk past.) Sometimes she will freeze if there is an unexplained noise in the trees. Her least favorite thing is people sitting down on or near the sidewalk. She will bark and freeze. Also, she is afraid of little dogs. If she sees one barking she will run like she's running from Freddy Kruger.
It's hard having a puppy who seems so confident, yet is terrified of walks. When she meets new people and dogs she is nothing but love. She will get into a stranger's lap (it's almost annoying) and kiss them silly. But on walks she's different. She cowers, furrows her brow, and her tail is usually half-tucked the entire time. My pup (bully breed mix) is afraid of her own shadow when we're walking. Honestly, sometimes I get sad when I see a dog happily walking along, not afraid of anything. Like there's this big yellow lab in the neighborhood who just is always having the time of his life. It killed me to find out he was the same age as my cowering, shaking dog.
The trainer told me to put deli meat in my hand like a kong and lead her. HOLY COW what a difference it made!! I'd not been treating quick enough in the past. She also told me to just make ridiculous noises and high-pitched praise the entire time. Also to stop when my puppy really really wants to stop. I had been flooding my puppy because everyone emphasized how much exercise she needs.
Well, the turkey made her not want to stop and we completed a 20 minute walk (CRAZY progress.) While she still cowered at times, she did such a good job.
My lil one did so well I am actually not dreading tomorrow's walk! To all my friends here: I get it. I understand why you may cry, get sad, and despair. I have cried soo many times watching other 6 month old pups walk like it's the time of their lives. It sucks to think your dog has anxiety, but there is hope! Wishing everyone and their little angels the best.
Oct. 3, 2018
Good for you and your pup! I'm so glad to hear that's working. We're struggling with much the same issue (with our adult dog) and we've used similar tactics with some good successes.
If you find the deli meat ever loses its charm, don't be afraid to switch it up with new, stinkier treats. We hit a plateau with our dog that seems to be scalable with some new, even smellier treats (just wrote about that here actually!).
You can also use squeeze tubes with cream cheese in them, if yours--like ours--doesn't always have the gentlest mouth when stressed. We use these and it helps us give a good steady supply of treats when passing stimuli that take a minute to go away (e.g. clanging trucks going down the street), while keeping our hands relatively clean.
Training with Tripe? [R]2 years, 6 months ago_Lucky_Devil posted submission on Dogtraining.
Sept. 29, 2017
Does anyone use tripe for training? My dog is not highly food motivated but I've heard tripe is "dog crack" and will get any dog's attention. I'm not holding out for a miracle but I would like to try it.
My question is how do you deliver it? I've heard of it used in food tubes but I can't find anything on how to prepare it to be squeezable. Any help would be appreciated - I really don't want to have to handle it with my hands every training session ;)
Traveling Chamois Cream? [R]2 years, 11 months agoawesometown3000 posted submission on bicycletouring.
April 18, 2017
I wish I was one of those folks who didn't need to use chamois cream, but I'm not. If I wear bike shorts, I need chamois cream or I get some very comfortable abrasion, but If I use it I'm typically fine.
For short rides, I typically just lube up before I leave the house. However, on multi-day trips, I've just been carrying my huge 8oz tube of Butt'r since those little packets are generally not enough for an application for me and seem like a high cost, waste of packaging and more junk for me to burn or throw away.
Does anyone use a reusable tube or squeeze container for Chamois Cream? Would those travel tubes like a humangear GoToob work well? Coghlans Squeeze Tubes? Something else? What size would you recommend? Considered getting something like this that I could also use for my camp soap as well.
April 18, 2017
If I'm worried about TSA and all that mess, I have Gotoobs and I fill 3 with chamois cream. Otherwise it just makes more sense to carry the big 8oz tube for unlimited creamin' up. I consider it an acceptable weight penalty. But having universal travel bottles like gotoobs/etc is just a useful travel tool regardless.
But here's the hard truth about chamois cream: You can replace it with hotel body lotion in a pinch and not notice the difference. Last time this happened I rode 60 miles with oatmeal scented hotel lotion in my shorts. I've done this plenty of times when I've left home without my Butt'rs.
What are some good, non-leaky travel containers? [R]3 years, 11 months agoMay 2, 2016
May 2, 2016
Really love Go Toob. They're really squishy so you can actually use up most of the stuff that's in there. We haven't had an issue with leaks but I don't use them for the really liquidy stuff (because we don't have enough!).
Bonus protip, if you need to fill a tube with something that comes in a jar, baby medicine syringes work amazingly well. Husband uses this with his hair cream with great success.
[REQUEST] HELP!! My homemade protein bars are far too gooey and liquid-y to maintain any type of form. What can I do?? [R]4 years, 10 months agoboundone posted submission on foodhacks.
May 19, 2015
Title says it all. The recipie I used was:
- 8 scoops chocloate whey protein powder
- 4 cups oats
- 1 cup milk
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 banana
- 3 boxes of raisins
The mixture was a bit too dry so I added some extra milk but my heavy hand added too much. I tried to compensate with more protein powder, but it didn't do the trick. After sitting in the fridge for 8+ hours, I awoke to still find a goupy mess in the brownie pan and my attempts to cut into bars failed (delicious, but tough to eat). I decided to scoop it back into a bowl and it's currently sitting in the fridge. How can I salvage these into bar-like form??

What were your best travel related purchases? What are your travel necessities? What should I pack?! [R]5 years, 2 months agoJan. 24, 2015
Jan. 24, 2015
Travel writer human person here. Feel free to ask questions!
1) Best travel-related purchases: GoToobs; a good set of noise-cancelling headphones for planes; a Kindle; a durable spinner-wheel carry-on bag (good luggage will change your life, have many recs if needed); slip-on sneakers for airport security and general travel comfort; this converter/adapter; a cute floral baseball cap for bad hair days.
2) All of the above are my travel necessities for int'l travel. Just good books, good music, my passport, and a fairly open mind. :D
3) Are you from the US? Look into getting TSA Precheck or Global Entry certification so you can waltz through security and customs. Best thing I ever bought myself.

I did this on my last flight only I used travel shampoo bottles which are bigger and I filled them myself at home for even cheaper drinking. Something like this: http://www.amazon.com/Humangear-GoToob-Travel-Bottle-Blue/dp/B002VS8H3G/ref=sr14?ie=UTF8&qid=1409244369&sr=8-4&keywords=travel+size+shampoo+bottles
I also bought a coke at the airport (past security) and just asked the flight attendant for a cup of ice and can of pop. (additional can = additional drinks!) I mixed it myself in plain sight on the plane (though the attendant wasn't around at the time) and no one said anything to me.
Edit: Also... since it was a hit last time... plane bacon
Completed ~220 mile bike ride over 2 days [R]5 years, 10 months agoadamant628 posted submission on ketogains.
May 12, 2014
I just finished TOSRV (tour of the scioto river valley) from Columbus,oh to Portsmouth, oh. (With a detour over the bridge to Kentucky, just to say that we rode to Kentucky.) I was definitely not the fastest rider, but I was quite pleased with my performance. I ate virtually no carbs all weekend ( ate the nuts out of the trail mix, a pepperoni that fit nicely in my jersey pocket, 1 whole pickle each day, some lunch meats and fried chicken for lunch (removed as much breading as possible), fajitas for dinner (lots of meats [steak, chicken, shrimp, chorizo], some bell peppers but skipped most of the onions), some cream cheese and butter packets along the way, lots of water and a few salt stick tabs as well, I also packed a couple gotoobs of coconut oil, but just consumed most I've one between the two days. I was pretty happy with my performance, I was mostly limited by sore knees, feet, and ass bones by the end. With more saddle time and strength, I think I could do much better with more training. I'm planning a similar two day ride (180 miles) in August.
One of the craziest things was blowing a 0.120 BAC (acetone), and measuring 6.7 mM blood BHOB when I got back.
May 13, 2014
I had no carbs other than what was in the nuts, pepperoni and vegetables in my fajitas for dinner, I would guess that I was under 25g carbs for the whole 2 day ride.
I used gotoobs. I got mine on Amazon, but just saw that they sell them at BB&B, for less, especially with a 20% off coupon. I spooned the CO into the tube and packed it in. I carried it in my jersey pocket, so it got soft pretty quickly and was liquid by the time I ended for the day, I took a squeeze every hour or so. I ended up consuming less than 1 3oz tube for both days (packed a 2nd one in my overnight bag just in case).
I did not track my HR, but I was not racing to say the least. We had a good paceline for a while and maintained 20+mph for about an hour, otherwise, I was at about 15-16mph.
I think if you keep your speed relatively low (under 20mph, or have a good paceline). I had also only ridden a couple of ~40-45mi rides in preparation, so better training will probably allow you to push a little harder. My average HR on my 40 mile rides are in the 140bpm range.
It was rainy and cool the first day, and I drank about 1.5 bottles every 25 miles, warmer the second day so I would drink 2 bottles between stops and I think I would chug a bottle at the rest stop and refill again before leaving.
Other advice: Keep up the electrolytes. I ate a few pickle spears through the day and drank the juice toward the end (had them in ziploc sandwich baggies). I also took a few salt stick caps (salt pills) throughout the day. Sunscreen!
Soon-to-be new business traveler. Any tips? [R]5 years, 11 months agosweetoldetc posted submission on travel.
May 1, 2014
I'm being put into a new role at work and it will involve a fair bit of travel. I've done some research into the locations we work in and thankfully it seems most of them are serviced by American, which is my preferred airline. All domestic travel.
I've got a frequent flyer account for the big three airlines here in the US. I'm based out of DFW. As I mentioned, most of our locations are serviced by AA, but we are required to book travel through an agency and are basically required to pick the lowest logical fare. Sometimes that means going via Delta versus American :/ we also bill the fare directly to the company, so sadly I cannot rack up extra award mileage by charging to my personal credit card.
Any tips you grizzled domestic US travel vets have for a guy like me? How about luggage? Any recommendations on a good combo type that has a detachable carry-on?
May 1, 2014
Sign up for all relevant rewards programs -- any airline you fly, hotels, rental cars, etc.
Never check your bag if you can help it. Always fly with a carryon. For transporting liquids through security, I really like these products. Get used to the routine of always taking your laptop out, for example, and thus ensure that you always pack it somewhere where you can easily and quickly unpack it and repack it.
Going backpacking for a month and looking for advice. [R]5 years, 11 months ago[deleted] posted submission on SkincareAddiction.
April 23, 2014
I've been lurking here for a long time and have been learning a lot of great things about skincare. I am now in kind of a dilemma and am hoping for some advice.
I have the opportunity to go backpacking in Europe for four weeks next month. I am a little worried about my skincare routine while I am gone. I am not planning on checking my backpack and therefore I will be limited in the products that I can bring. Here is my routine right now for my combination/acne-prone/very PIH-prone skin:
-splash face with water
-apply SN Facelift Serum
-moisturize with Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer
-apply boscia Daily Defense Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 PA+++
-OCM with olive, castor, and tea tree oil if I am wearing face makeup (only about two or three days a week)
-Wash face with Aveeno Ultra Calming foaming cleanser
-PC Clear 2% BHA
-Moisturize with Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer
-Spot treat with Mario Badesco Anti-Acne Serum or Drying Lotion
The thing I am most concerned about is the Aveeno cleanser because I can't transfer a foaming cleanser to a smaller bottle and it is the first cleanser that I have used that doesn't make my face feel like it needs to be smothered in lotion right away. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on products that I should consider, maybe steps I could combine, etc.
April 23, 2014
The easiest thing to do would probably be to buy small travel bottles and transfer some product into them - something like these:
and I think target sells small cheapie ones
Question about travelling with your care routine. [R]6 years, 1 month agomelorga posted submission on SkincareAddiction.
Feb. 18, 2014
I've been traveling a lot and will be traveling a lot more this Summer for work and horse shows. I need a way to store them in more travel-friendly sizes.
I've been using: Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser Cerave moisturizer (tub) Tea Tree Oil & Witch Hazel spot treatment Occasional use of Stridex madefromearth Vitamin Serum
Does anyone know of a good, small-size travel kit or something I can keep a few days worth of product in? Any tips for skincare on the go? I figure I'll leave the Stridex and Vitamin Serum at home since I only use them every few days.
Feb. 18, 2014
I am a traveler and a lover of tiny, effective things. I've used these thingers with the Cerave foaming wash very successfully. Note there is a list of products they don't recommend using with them, but for general facewash/shampoo/lotion stuff these are the bees knees.

- My Osprey backpack -- not a huge back for multiple week trips, but excellent for 3-10 day journeys
- Reusable liquid tube things for shampoos, etc. (like these )
- My Macbook Air -- just got it, but good lord the lightness of it compared to my old computer is so freeing. The long-lasting battery is a godsend as well.
