  1. Calm pup of the litter?

    New Additions
    I recently went to see a litter of puppies. All were sold except for the one i had asked to save for me. I arrived and my puppy seems very calm compared to his siblings. Most of them seemed very hyper, playful, play-biting a bit, running up to me and trying to grab my shoe laces. The one i have...
  2. Working and owning a dog: Advice please

    General Dog Discussion
    hello :) I would like some advice and opinions on owning a dog whilst working. I am a freelance illustrator but work part time 10-4, each day of the week. (weekends off) Luckily I work five minutes from home so I will easily be able to make it home on my hour lunch break. I grew up with...
  3. The new guy - adult & puppy interactions?

    New Additions
    :) So we weren't planning on bringing a puppy home until next spring, but after choosing the breed we wanted we got in touch with breed clubs, breeders and other Border Terrier owners. We met up with a Border Terrier breeder and we got to meet six adorable 5 week old wigglebutt puppies :D...
  4. How to get my young dog to greet people calmly?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My 7 month old dog gets super excited whenever he sees people outside of my family. He is mouthy with these people, too - not painfully, just rudely. He's not mouthy with me, though, so I'm not sure how to break him of this habit. I usually hold on to him and prevent him from getting to our...
  5. How do I get my dog used to changes?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a three and a half year old shar pei mix. She's a great dog, very well behaved and generally easy going. However, for whatever reason, she has really bad problems with changes. I'd compare her to Raymond off of Rain Man. She doesn't like sleeping out of her cage, she knows when...
  6. How do y'all cope on the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad days ...

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Which I know we all have as dog owners? Interested to hear your ideas, not least because mine sometimes fail. When Tuva suddenly stops listening (like when, yesterday, she failed her recall in the park where she's been fine for a week, then dodged me so I needed 10 mins even to catch her), my...
  7. My dog is mellow

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a 5 month old Golden Retriever who I have had since he was 8 weeks old. Since I've had him, he's been very Mellow and only wants to snuggle with people and will not retrieve to save his life. I wouldn't think too much of it if it weren't for my 5 month old German Shepherd who is very...
  8. Bichon Frise hyperactive

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi all, I have a 10 year old female cockapoo and a 2 year old male Bichon Frise. Our cockapoo is spayed but our Bichon is not neutered. Our problem is that the Bichon (Toby) since he is still basically a puppy is hyperactive and will not leave our cockapoo (Tootsie) alone. He wants to play...
  9. Help with Humping/Calming a dog down

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi all, I found this forum earlier and decided maybe it was worth posting to see what kind of ideas I get here! My husband and I adopted a 6-7 month old pit (mix?) who we named Pikel last Thursday, so exactly a week ago. He's been doing well, has already learned sit and is pretty well potty...
  10. Diet that makes my puppy calmer and less anxious

    Dog Food
    Hi guys, I wonder if you guys can give me some insights about this, since I've only been feeding kibbles to my pup so I'm not familiar with specialized diets. My pup is a very active dog, I'd say he has medium high energy (or maybe it's just pup energy lol). Actually, when he came home, he was...
