    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi!, i live in a semirural area in Kenya, we have a big compound where we are about to start raising chickens. We decided to buy a local dog to ¨guard¨ the compound. So the idea is to keep the dog inside a specific area during the day and to let her (yes, is a she) roam free during the night...

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My American Eskimo puppy, Hunter, is almost 5 months and has been sleeping in his crate at night since when we got him at 6 weeks. In the beginning his crate was placed in my room, by my bed.

  7. Would these two breeds live harmoniously?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hey! I currently own a three year old shar-pei mix. She's on the smaller side due to her second half, but visably appears to be a shar-pei. I will be moving soon, and am not entirely comfortable with the area I'll be moving too. My dog is protective, and definitely sounds scary, but due to her...

    Today is my Akita's (Kuma) birthday today. He just turned 3. Don't worry, we didn't give him all three, and no we didn't get three for his third birthday, just a coincidence

  10. Turkish Kangal

    Dog Breeds
    Has anyone here owned a Turkish Kangal, or have experience with one. I've never seen one in person but I've been researching them for months now and I really want one. I was curious as to what type of temperament they have, and if they are good family dogs. Thanks
