    Edited: Was a full venting post, didn’t feel comfortable leaving it all up. Basically my sister and her husband don’t want their black lab puppy anymore, he grew up and became too much work, too much like a lab. They can’t find him a home and they don’t want him anymore so they were secretly...

    Hi! I'm new here and excited to chat with you guys about all things dogs! I've recently quit my full-time office job to pursue something I really care about -- working with dogs! I got a job working at a humane society, but I'm exploring other "dog jobs" to help supplement my income and give me...

    Hey guys, I would really like some advice. Recently, I got a shelter dog to care of. He is an older dog, 6-7 years old, a mixed breed and I thought I could take care of him. Me and my family used to own a smaller dog and I knew what that smaller dog demanded and I was okay and relaxed about...

    Hello everyone! A couple of months ago I adopted my first dog and I LOVE him. He's so sweet. Right now I'm on holiday break so I am able to take him out as often as needed, but next semester I will be finishing my associate's and will be quite busy. I'll be able to let him out before heading to...

    If you are not your dog’s leader, you will not be respected. A dog who doesn’t respect her owner can show the attitude in many different ways; she might growl when you go to move her off the sofa or bed or when she has a toy or bone. She might snap at you when you try to groom her, or she may...
  12. Dog Grooming
    Hi everyone! I own a beautiful chocolate Labrador named Bonnie and she's a pure blooded lab, but she's so different from the labs I usually see. She's super stocky, and has longer fur than normal. While she's not long haired, I certainly wouldn't call her short haired. She's always been...

  18. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, I recently adopted a 15 month old (approx) staffy, and at the pound he was very energetic and playful, but most importantly quiet. We were told he was raised previously as an outdoors dog and I intended to keep that tradition. However, we've let him inside a few times to stay out of the...

    One of my 1year dashaund cross has always been quite wary of people, like her mom, but I just went into my moms room to talk to her. Her tail went straight between her legs, hiding behind her, ready to bark and a very hard stare. I was in there for around half an hour watching the supervet with...
