  1. General Dog Discussion
    I just bought home a 2 months old puppy poodle last week and she refused to eat her dry food (which I've got them from the breeder, claimed to be the same as he used to feed her). After not eating for one day I contacted the breeder about this issue and he said puppy can't goes without eating...
  2. Housetraining
    Hi all! I am trying to retrain my 3 year old Boston. She is potty trained (with the occasional slip up inside) and is free fed. She has absolutely no discipline in terms of listening and knowing what is right and wrong. I have researched quite a bit and seems like we are going the umbilical...

    10 Week Old Tela is a new introduction to our family. As I did with my previous puppy, she eats 3 meals a day, the amount according to her weight on the food package. 1 Year old Stash has always been a grazer since he got out of puppyhood. He picks at his food, slowly throughout the day. He...

    Hello everyone, my name is Joe, me and my partner both live and work in China and have rescued a dog a few months ago. For a while we were feeding him a basic diet of Pedigree dog food as this was the only recognizable brand we could find, and have been informed that Chinese ones were on the...
  5. Dog Food
    We are considering adopting a dog very soon. We found one that we love (Australian Cattle Dog/Red Heeler Mix). The foster where he is currently located feeds him three times a day, about 1.5 cups per feeding. We can't feed him three times per day because of our work schedule, and honestly we...

  7. New Additions
    My 4-year-old lab mix and I are moving in with a couple new roommates next month. A little background on my girl, Zuko: She's always been the only dog in the house. We used to go to the dog park that was near our apartment all the time, and she loved playing with the other dogs. One day she...
  8. Dog Health
    Hi All, I'm looking to improve either a dogs hydration or nutrition in a final year project at university. I've seen there are currently things out like the pedigree app that supposedly ensures your dogs health etc, but after reading many of the reviews it seems that it's not all it's made out...
  9. Introductions
    I fear that I spoiled my Gidget by giving her treats like bits of cheese or weiners, or left-overs from my plate. Now she won't eat her food. She begs for mine. She will eat the cat's canned food, but not the dry. I have stopped providing the treats to her but she still does not eat her own...
  10. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello, first time poster. I'm a vet tech with a 12 pound mutt that everyone swears up and down is an Italian greyhound (he is most definitely not. Probably toy fox terrier and chihuahua). He's a "special" child. He tries very hard and is actually kind of smart but learns very slowly. It...
  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    Apologies in advance for the long post! This is a relatively small issue in the grand scheme of things, but annoying for us so I'm hoping someone out there will have some tips to help! My dog never used to care about meal time. He's food motivated for training, but never was overly excited...

If I do switch them to a raw diet I want to so it properly. Do you guys have any good resources that I could read on how to set up...

  14. General Dog Discussion
    We just adopted a second dog and both of these dogs are "gradual eaters." In other words, they don't run right to the food when I put it out and go after it. This being said, I am having trouble knowing if they are both getting the right amount of food. If I separate them to eat they just sit...
  15. Dog Training and Behavior
    I'm at my whit’s end with my dogs and I need help. I have a 3 year old black lab rescue named Angie. She was my first dog; I made many mistakes with her as far as training goes. Basically she now believes she is the alpha and will not listen to me whatsoever. I recently rescued a Basset...
  16. Housetraining
    When crate training a young pup, should we leave their water bowl inside the crate with them all the time? Or should we remove it after they're done eating along with their food dish? I've read differing opinions -- obviously some people insist that the dog needs access to water at all time...

    Hi Guys, I recently got a Boerboel pup (about 3-4 months old now). A Boerboel is a big mastiff-type dog. The Boerboel, like many other large dogs, are prone to get Hip Dysplasia. I've read that improper feeding may lead your pup to grow too fast, which in turn makes it even more susceptible...
  18. Dog Training and Behavior
    Ive had the dog (pug) his whole life. He used to be hopelessly devoted to me. Before my husband and I moved in together, he started developing a normal attachment to him. We moved in together three years ago, and he slowly became codependent on my hub. In the past year it has gotten to the...

    I have just put my 9 week old mini schnauzer on a feeding schedule. Should I take the food away that he didn't eat after a certain time span or leave it out for him? Any suggestions or advice? :ponder:
