  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello everyone, I got my dog from a shelter almost 2 years ago. She was 3 months old at the time. She is an Aussie mix, not sure what else is there (but she has a lot of aussie in her). Despite some issues with separation anxiety (due to the fact that some a**hole threw her in a dumpster when...

    Hello! My dog, Teddy, is 11 years old and has chronic pancreatitis and luxating patellas in both his rear knees. I would like to give him a joint supplement to help with his knees but am concerned about flaring up his pancreatitis (since most joint supplements contain fatty omega-3). Does...

  4. Dog Training and Behavior
    I’ve had my poodle chihuahua mix, Bella, for around 7 years now, and never had too serious of a problem with whining at night. At night, we normally lock her in the large garage and she sleeps on the couch in there. Before, when we locked her up for the night, she would test us by whining for...
  5. Puppy Help
    Hello! I am new to this forum and was wondering if anyone could help me with my current predicament. I got my Shih Poo, Jemma, when she was 4 months old. When we first got her, we noticed she would eat her own feces. We asked the vet how to stop it and they sold us Forbid powder. After that...

    Hi all! This is my first time posting on Dog Forum, and I am really hoping I get some advice on my issue! I have a Pitbull/Chow Chow/5 other breeds mix that I got from the shelter a year and a half ago when he was 4 months old. He is overall a great and loving dog, but back in April he started...
  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    First off I am the proud dog mom of a 3 year old, Black American Lab/German Shorthaired Pointer Mix, female, named Athena. Since she was little she has not been good around small animals except for our cat, Betty. After research I learned that German Shorthaired Pointers do not coexist well...

  10. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi. This is gonna be long, because I don't know how to tell short stories. Sorry in advance. My family and I have 4 dogs, all male. One Lhasa Apso, 17, and 3 Pugs, 8, 5, and 4. We've had our Lhasa since he was about 6, and our 8 and 5 year old Pugs we raised from puppies. Our most "recent"...
  11. Dog Health
    Greetings all! I'm finally joining a forum to see if anyone has any insights that might help me help my 6 year old pit mix with very severe allergies. I got Dolores at the ASPCA a year and a half ago. They warned me she had allergies, but said it would a sort of out-break and resolve once a...
  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello, everyone! I've been lurking on this site for a while as a guest, and I see a lot of helpful advice come from users, so I thought I'd give it a try as well. I adopted a bluetick coonhound about 3 months ago, 8 months old. He's extremely smart, lovable, and pretty well mannered. He came...

    Hi! So my girlfriend and I have 3 dogs and were planning on doing a vacation next year with all 3 dogs. But we have never done this before all our dogs are around 50 lbs, well behaved. Were just looking for some advice, tips or if you know any great vacation spots that are very dog friendly...

    Alright, so here's the long version with tragic backstory, etc. TL;DR is at the end -- I just wanted to give anyone who reads some insight as to why my poor baby is feeling this way. A couple of months after I moved in with my ex boyfriend, a co-worker of mine had a puppy left with her, by her...
  15. Working Dogs
    Hi there! I'm in the beginning stages of searching for my first psychiatric service dog and am trying to decide on what size breed I should go with. We currently have a boxer who has the perfect temperament for this sort of job, but is too old to start training. If I go with a larger breed, they...

    I currently have a 2 year old chocolate lab(I'm guessing) Kota who is my baby. He goes to work with me and pretty much everywhere else too. I have owned him since he was maybe 4 or 5 weeks old when I found him alone I am guessing abandoned in my friends field and because I have had him so long...
  17. Housetraining
    Our Beagle/Lab mix Bowie continues to relieves himself on our floors even when we take him outside after feeding, naps, etc.. Sometimes he even waits until we're back inside before he does his business. What sort of schedule should i get him on to fix this? Some advise would really help.
  18. Dog Grooming
    Hi everyone, I just recently finished dog grooming school and I already got a job! It's good to have backup equipment in case something breaks, so what are the best brands, items, etc. for professional groomers? At the moment I'm mainly focusing on cordless clippers. Right now I have Andis...

    So I adopted a dog this past weekend (have had him 5 days now), and he is the most adorable and loving guy. I am attempting to implement the two week shut down. He is just over 1, and he has never been consistently disciplined. I read that during these two weeks you are not supposed to train...

    I have a 2-year-old female blue-heeler mix, her name is Anathema, we got her at the local animal shelter when she was only a few weeks old, they didn't know what else she was mixed with but my family is convinced that she is mixed with coyote, but that isn't really the point. I am moving out of...
