    Hello, I have a 1.5 year old Australian Shepherd/Pit Bull mix. She's super smart and also has a lot of energy. We've had her since she was 4 months old, and unfortunately about after a month of being with us, I was rear ended with her in the car. Thankfully there were no injuries, just an...

    I have a six year old, 10 pound chi-dachshund mix named Hobbles. We adopted her from a shelter in March. She has mange on her back which makes us think that she may have suffered some neglect/malnutrition but she is very friendly so we have no reason to believe that she was ever physically...

    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...

    I adopted my dog from a shelter nearly two years ago. He was about 8-9 months we think when I adopted him and he looks like a pit bull mix (unsure about what his mix is). He had some aggressive tendencies when we first got him but he has made a lot of progress except in one area and I need help...

    Ok. So. I was watching this video about this cute little girl who was crying and she just wanted to listen to fraggle rock and have a snack. Me, interested in what the hell fraggle rock was, looked it up. Ok, so kids show. Anyway, my dog and I are sitting on the couch and he’s laying with me and...

    Had my rescue fixed almost 3 weeks ago and now is severely unfriendly with my 6 yo son. The two use to be best pals. He does not pull, push or act any way aggressive with the dog, yet now, my pup won’t allow my son to approach or even be in the same room without intense growling and charging. I...

    Hi all, I'm the owner of a 3 year old, spayed mut and I've identified a pattern of behavior that she has developed over the past year.

    Hi, I have an 18 month old Cane Corso- when house training her we used a bell at the door which she rings to go outside (I have to add she is the only large dog I have ever had who will soil her kennel when crated -and yes it’s appropriate size for her not too large) this was even before a bad...

    My wife and I had been talking about getting a Chow Chow for about a year, and recently we took the plunge and brought a female brown pup home and named her "Halsey". It's been a surprisingly wonderful experience. I love raising puppies, so the messes and noise don't bother me overmuch. But our...
