    Okay, honestly, I have no idea what I'm doing with my uncle's family dog and no one wants to take care of her or help me take care of her. She's a terrier mix and she's around 14-16 years old, I'm not 100% sure since when my uncle got her I was still young myself. But from three or four years...

    I have a healthy older Pointer mix and a newer 6 month old Heeler.

    I have a chihuahua pomeranian cross in my care. He is nearly 4 yrs old. He was neutered at 1 year. Afterwards during checkups, it was highlighted to the vet that the dog had an 'outty bellybutton.' The vet seemed somewhat embarrased that she hadnt noticed this during surgery or before at the...

    So, I have a 9 year old Springer Spaniel who, up until about a year ago, was a very well behaved dog. We used to get him out for a half an hour walk everyday, and then about 3 days a week we would take him to a field behind my old high school and let him run around off leash for about 30-45...

    Our black lab, Valor, will be 11 years old next month and about a month ago, he started pooping in the house. (note: he is a seeing eye dog and went through rigorous training so that this would never be an issue, so we don't think it's a behavioral problem.) When the issue began, it was diarrhea...
  16. Dog Training and Behavior
    We adopted a pitbull mix 3 years ago from the local humane society. The dog was estimated to be around 4-5 years old then so currently about 7-8 years old. When we got the dog, Xion, he was already house trained and knew all basic commands. He listens very well and is very obedient with...

    So it only took 5 days, for my puppy Shyloh and my gf's dog Sofie to get used to each other. We decided to just let them go outside with muzzles on first then took them off. Let's just say, the puppy knows who's the Alpha now xD Now to get the little one to understand commands better :)
