  1. Does my pup poop and pee to get treats?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I know it sounds like a silly question. It's his behavior that I have been observing since yesterday. So, my puppy, Milo was brought to our home just yesterday. He seems like a very smart pup. He makes poo and pee accidents on the tiled floor sometimes, but most of the time, he poops and pees...
  2. Difference between sniffing for fun and sniffing for pooping/peeing?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, We recently got a 1.5 year old female Saint Bernard from a rescue. She does not have any former training, so I'm starting with that now. She is improving the walking without pulling. We live in a rural area, so lots of smells from wild animals on the road. Before leaving for the...

  4. My dog won't stop pooping in the car

    So I have a one-year-old lab/retriever/pit mix (40 lbs and fully grown). Every time I take her in the car she poops.

  7. Gurgling Tummy and Mucus/Slimy Poops

    Dog Health
    I'm at my wit's end. Three times in the last 1.5 months my dog has gotten brief bouts of something? He wakes up and is hesitant to eat his food (which is a big deal for him because he is extremely food motivated). He eats it after a while, but very slowly compared to normal. He will then proceed...

    Poor Biscuit has been up every 3 hours during the night with explosive diarrhea. He's gone at least 7 times. The first time, I thought it was because he hadn't eaten enough (he often has diarrhea when he's hungry, but not explosive diarrhea). The second time, he begged to go out. I was super...
