    General Dog Discussion
    Hi, I am applying for jobs in IL where I am currently in TX. Do you think it is a bad idea to adopt a dog right now if I plan on moving states with this new job? Would it cause the dog too much stress of getting accustomed to my apartment and then having to move again anywhere between 1-6...

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I would like to volunteer with my local Dog Rescue center to address some of their behavior problems so they can have more chances to be adopted. Although I really think this will increase their chances I also think that could make the dog to get attached to the trainer. I was wondering if...

    New Additions
    Hi! I'm new, and this seemed like an appropriate forum to go for help. So I have a 12 year old cat who is VERY shy towards other people/animals. It took her almost a year to not run away from my old roommate's cat, though he was a bit of an a*hole. She's not aggressive though. Now I have been...

    I'm looking for breed recommendations. We are thinking about getting a new dog and I have two elementary aged girls and a 16 year old Brittany who you don't know is there. I don't want too big so the girls can't walk it and I'm not too fond of the really little yelping, jittery dogs...

  18. First Time Dog Owner

    New Additions
    Tomorrow, I am picking up a cockapoo that I found on Craigslist. I have never had a dog before, but I think this one will be a good starter. She is four years old and already potty trained. By four she should be out of her puppy stage and pretty well trained and developed. The current owners...
  19. Why buying a dog while you can adopt one

    New Additions
    When my wife started putting the idea in my head of adopting a dog, to be honest I wasn't so sure at first since I was more the type of person who would prefer a full breed dog and not a mixed one, shelters tend to be a hard place to find a full breed dog (at least that's why I thought at the...
