  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi all, I've got a bit of a tricky situation. About a week ago I accidentally shut my puppy's tail in the car door -- it's quite long and he flicks it around a lot, must have moved it between me putting him in the car and wrapping it around him and me shutting the door. Anyway, he now...
  2. General Dog Discussion
    Hi there, My girlfriend and I have recently been looking at various dog breeds, and the one that keeps popping up is the Brittany. Lots of spaniels and sporting breeds have been popping up as well, but we just worry that if we don't give them a "job" (agility or hunting) they will be too...

    About a week ago I got an overseas rescue dog - after several years thinking about getting a dog and doing research. While it's not a decision I took lightly, in the past week I've suffered from severe anxiety. The dog has some behavioural issues, including intense separation anxiety and...

    Hello, I have a 6 year old Yorkshire terrier, he is known for being a wimp and getting scared of everything. Yesterday though, he was in our bathroom for a few hours barking at the sewage hole. When I went to check what the all fuss was about I saw a tiny dead mouse on the floor, I don't...
  5. Dog Training and Behavior
    One of my 1year dashaund cross has always been quite wary of people, like her mom, but I just went into my moms room to talk to her. Her tail went straight between her legs, hiding behind her, ready to bark and a very hard stare. I was in there for around half an hour watching the supervet with...

    The name of the breed is Tornjak. I want to hear what the cons and pros are of owning one of those dogs. Thanks!
  7. Puppy Help
    Hi there! (Long post alert, I'm sorry) My fiance and I recently brought home a 15 week-old miniature poodle named Evie. We live in an apartment complex that normally does not allow pets, but I have severe anxiety and my doctor suggested getting an emotional support animal. I grew up with a...

    My dog, a pure bred fox terrier, has been diagnosed as possible anemic. He was just at the vet Monday and had a full blood count done. He hasn't really eaten for a while, at least not properly, and he's a voracious eater. He's usually spunky and full of life and last night he wanted me to...
  9. Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a English springier spaniel/lab mix who is what feels like impossible to train. I have tried giving treats every time but she began to assume she would always get a treat. after that i tried to mix it up and not always give her a treat but always giving affection. That only worked for...

  11. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi everyone. I need some help about socializing and behavior between an older dog (Belgium Shepherd, 13) and a pup (German Shepherd, 8 weeks). Basically my older dog isn't very well socialized (she isn't aggressive, just used to bark lots), I've been working on it with her, and she is behaving...

    Hi, everyone! I have a black Lab who's name is Cookie. He's a year old but I've realized he's too smart and he needs toys and entertainment stuff for him. Do you recommend something that has worked for you? I want to keep him busy, he's always paying attention to everything and I want to...

    This weekend has been a terrifying weekend so far and it just continues. Trucker has be to the e-vet twice to no avail so don't thinking I am not trying or willing to pay whatever to get this sorted out. I am trying to get another appointment with his regular vet today but I am also reaching out...

    So this morning I thought Trucker was chewing on his bone like a good boy when I caught a glimpse of shiny blue, it was an ornament. I only have plastic ornaments on my tree this year because we are still in an adjustment period and I wasn't sure how Trucker would react to a Christmas Tree. I...
  15. Dog Gear and Supplies
    Hi! I've already spent quite a bit of time looking for this toy but can't find anything on google. This is her favorite toy and as you can see it's down to its last days. It's supposed to be a squeaky rubber dumbbell with a basketball on one side and a soccer ball on the other. I'm not sure...
  16. Dog Training and Behavior
    Since coming home Trucker has been slowing creeping up in weight, currently I am not worried about where he is at (a solid 61.2lbs) but if it continues it will be of a concern. We do quite a bit of training on commands every day, he loves it, I love it, it builds our bond. But about 50 % of the...

    Hi all, My baby is 5 months old, a Norwich Terrier, weighs 10 lbs. She fell off a step and landed just the wrong way to wrench her knee two days ago at someone else's house. We spent all yesterday at the emergency vet, our regular vet, and an orthopedic specialist. Besides inflammation, there's...

    I have been diagnosed and suffer from anxiety and often have anxiety attacks due to everyday stress-related situations. Especially work. I have been on medication since I was a in grade school. Recently I adopted a dog and it's amazing how much he helps my anxiety. I haven't had an anxiety...
  20. Housetraining
    Hello! So I got my puppy when she was a couple of days from being 8 weeks & I've had her for a little over 2 weeks now! When I got her she didn't have any of her vaccinations (but got her vaccinated that same day) so I've avoided trying to potty training her outside just to be safe! Since then...
