new dog in the house

  1. New Additions
    HI, I am new here but hope to get some advice. We have a 2.5 yr old dog who is quite nervous and quiet but he gets on fine with other dogs. We recently got a new puppy, partly to keep him company because he often looks sad. But, our current dog HATES the new puppy. He wont let it come near...

    The past few months the idea of getting a dog is circling around the house. We are a 4 member family with two children both 18, who are willing to help with the dog care, the free time they have in the house, as well as take the dog to walks. The main care will be divided to all family members...

    Hello everyone! In the next couple years, I know I'm going to adopt a third dog. I've done a lot of thinking and research on the most obvious things to consider when bringing home another dog - the most important ones being, do I have enough time, money, and space to provide for a third dog...

    Hello, my name is Amaury and I recently rescued a male (Yorkie/Poodle) (the vet told me he could be anywhere from 4 to 5 years old) and I introduced him to my older male dog (Yorkie/Maltese) whose 6 years old. My mom and I took both of the dogs out for walks. I'm walking my newer dog (Max) and...

    Hello! I'm new to this forum, so I'm sorry if this is repetitive/if I'm posting it in the wrong location. Just to give some context, I have two dogs at the moment. One is a six year old female we've had since she was a puppy, the other is a five year old male we just rescued. Both labs. The...

    The struggle is real. I brought a new roommate into my house on June 1st, and along with her came a 2 y.o. Maltese mix named Milo. He's adorable and loves everyone, but we've been having some, um, "piss-ues" recently, and I really need some advice. Here's a quick background: I've lived here...
  8. Dog Training and Behavior
    I recently adopted a new dog and I'm at a spot where I'm unsure how to introduce her to our current dog. My sister's dog who lives with us now is nervous around other dogs. When shes on a leash she lunges at any dog she sees. She's done well with other dogs when she is unrestrained, and has...

    I am set to receive a dog (Lord willing) in about two weeks from someone, and I need some serious advice on how to train this pup: Her name is "Puppy" (at least for now) and she will be 1 year old on July 17, and has had ZERO training. Puppy lives with 6 other dogs and 4 cats all inside a filth...

    I recently adopted a 2nd dog (1 week ago). She is a 1-2yr old black lab and is finally starting to come into her own and find her personality. We also have a 7yr old chocolate lab. Overall they are adjusting well together, playing nicely and slowly starting to bond. Here's the problem: Our new...

    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...
  13. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hey all! This is my first time posting in this forum but I really could use some training advice. I'm a vet student, and a few days ago I adopted a dog from my school who was used for teaching purposes her whole life (she's now 5). She wasn't abused or anything, but she's lived a very...

    First of all, hello to everyone! This is my first time on the forum and my first time posting. It's great to see so many fellow dog-lovers here. I am here because I would like some guidance and/or hear opinions from people that have gone through similar situations. My issue is that I have a 2...

    Hey! I'm new here, and new to being a dog mama. In February of this year, I gained my first fur baby, Milo. He's a pomeranian, chihuahua and beagle mix, born in December. He's so sweet, and since he's become part of my family I've been learning so much. I'm thankful to have found a forum to...

    What a terrific Forum! I have been reading all of the 'Puppy' posts and am sucking up the info like a Hoover. After reading a few "OMG What Have I Done" posts, I thought I would seek some advice BEFORE 'Pup' arrives. Us: We (as a couple) are moving in with the owner of an apartment and his 11...

    Friday I adopted Fred, at least on paper. He was an owner surrender (people bought him for their kids, three years passed, the kids were no longer taking care of him and he was dropped at the shelter Friday morning an hour or so before I got there and met him). I was really hoping they would...
