  1. Dog Gear and Supplies
    I have created a dog activity and rest centre for my Alevel project in the UK. It has been designed for the Dogs Trust where the dogs are often left without interaction and so are board. This project is to combat this problem in an effort to entertain the dogs in the play area.:) Please could...
  2. Housetraining
    I just wanted to write out how I potty trained my pup, since its one of those things every new puppy family has to go through. Hopefully this can help someone. I got him a 8 weeks old, from a farm who had never crated him or let him indoors. I decided not to buy a crate either. He's now...

    Hi, I am a college student looking at making a phone app for a project. The app would provide a place for people to share routes and trails suitable for walking with pets. I'm just curious if people would be interested in using such an app and if so are there are any features you would like...

    Hello all, My girlfirend and I are both avid dog lovers, having been born and raised with dogs and currently own a 1 year old Shepherd/Lab mix. As I am sure you many of you are aware, labs tend to have a lot of energy and that is definitely the case with our pup Jake. In the summer, we feel...

  6. General Dog Discussion
    Hi, I have a shepherd-retriever 4-year-old active dog. He used to be super high energy, and to help him let out some of that energy, I've slowly started a running program with him. We started just going around the block, worked up to a mile, and, over the past year, have slowly made our way to...
  7. General Dog Discussion
    Hi there, this is my first time on this site. My husband and I adopted our first dog almost a month ago from our local shelter. She is a lab, collie mix, and oddly enough she's a good match with us even though we're in an apartment building. She's pretty mellow, and has only barked inside once...

    Hello, I have a 5mo yellow labrador, Zazu, and he is a strong, active puppy. He recently completed all his shots so we have been taking him out for morning and evening walks (fast pace, 85% walk, 15% jog/run). We do not have many trails around so we have been taking the same route for every...

    Hello! I've been wanting a dog and would like to adopt a rescue but i'm having the toughest time deciding which dog breed to go with. I'd like some help from people who have experience with multiple dog breeds. Here's what I'm looking for in a dog! If you know of a breed that fits these...

    So my mini dachshund, Bentley has been with me for a couple months now. When I first got Bentley he was a little overweight as most dachshunds are. I took him to the vet when I first got him for the initial checkup. I took Bentley back a couple days ago for a routine visit and he was noticeably...
  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    My 8 month old male lab puppy has recently started getting rough with me, especially late in the evening. He doesn't bite me, but he does mouth me and will try to climb on me or grab my legs with his paws while I'm sitting on the couch. When he does this, it hurts and I give him a stern no and...
  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi I have a 1yr old Siberian Husky pure bred and I have trained it well and it get plenty of exercise. However I want to start letting it pull me on my bike in the afternoon for extra exercise for it. I'm a bit worried as I don't know if he will stop being submissive to me because he will be in...
  13. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello everyone, I just signed up here yesterday so I'm not quite sure where I should be making this thread. I tried looking around for the best spot, and this seemed to be it. If not, please let me know. So here's the deal. About two months ago my husband and I adopted an Aussie/Border mix pup...
  14. Puppy Help
    Hello dear dog-lovers, I have been trying to find out IF ,and if, which dog would be right for me. I dearly want one, but I respect that I have a responsibility towards the animal and that it wouldn´t exist purely for my own enjoyment. My living situation: - I am an actress and a singer and...

    Hi! I'm new here. I am the fur mama of Max a.k.a. Maxi! :D We are not very active parents, we take him for occasional walks, I do chase him around the backyard; it is fenced in, so he can chase (bark) at squirrels and run back and forth. He naps for most of the day, his daddy doesn't get...

    I keep hearing that too much exercising can be bad for a puppy's joints. But how much is too much? I have a very high-energy 12-week old. She is golden-lab-collie mix, who looks like a golden-lab, but has energy demands of a collie. She goes bananas:dog-crazy: if not taken for a good long walk...
  17. Dog Training and Behavior
    This is kind of long but I need to know if I should be exercising my dog more. Just a little rundown, he is a ten month old boxer plott hound mix, he gets played with anywhere from 3-5 hours a day inside with another hour or so outside (depending on how the weather is) and he doesn't...
  18. Dog Health and Food
    This is a little bit of a rant. Recently I posted a thread asking about whether my dog was too skinny, I was assured that he wasn't and I was being told that by people who were used to seeing fat dogs. Since then I've been really looking at dogs weight and am appalled at how many are...

    We are a family with four children. We live on an acreage. My eldest daughter has a dog which adores her and hence her brother has been wanting a dog of his own. We looked for a dog since Christmas, we had several opportunities but I wanted to ensure the dog was the right fit. The kids like to...
  20. Dog Breeds
    Okay, so I was wondering at what age could I begin exercising a Great Dane? I understand that Great Dane puppies really aren't suppose to be "exercised," but when does it become okay to do so?? I was assuming around once the dog is 12 to 14 months? I mean, can Great Danes "really" be exercised...
