  1. Dog Health
    I have a female lab Sophie that just turned 7. In the last year it seems like she tires easily. I assumed it was because this summer was really hot and she can’t tolerate the heat. But even on cool days she walks really slow and sometimes she won’t move. She’ll play with her friend biting...
  2. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello guys, (not a former english speaker here, I'll try my best!) I work at an animal shelter. And Im currently caring for Bobba, a young American Staff (1,5 yo). He's there because he doesnt get along with other dogs at all. So he's staying in a cage (relatively large with an exterior part...

And now I want a puppy. :rolleyes: It's been so long since I've had a furry little puppy in the house. Biscuit was...

He's fairly well behaved, considering the breed mix. However, I'm a little confused recently as to how much exercise is too much. We go on...
  7. Puppy Help
    Since the clock is rolled back again, and I am going through this stuff fresh again, I thought I would give a quick overview of the High Prey High Energy puppy, for anyone thinking of making this choice for their next dog, or newer inexperienced dog owners who think "OH I Can Handle it". I...
  8. General Dog Discussion
    Greetings~ Just a quick question about dog temperments or if this behaviour is unique to this boxer. Occasionally the dog will suddenly grow incredibly hyperactive and is likely to hurt himself and anyone around as he sprints and jumps around the house, smashing into doors and walls. Any time...
