This may seem like an outlandish idea but please bare with me :)
I am looking for some dog pack organisational structures for a dog sanctuary. This may be of use in general for dog sanctuaries and would be of use to me in the sanctuary at which I am currently volunteering.
I have a 5 year old miniature dachshund, Kylie. She grew up with a variety of dog breeds. She thinks she is very big and will often chase the bigger dogs in my apartment complex, but will never come in physical contact with them (she will run up and bark but keep her distance). When it comes to...
