    I have a 30 lb beagle-basset mix (10 y/o female). I am considering adopting a senior dachsund (10 y/o, male). Both fixed. Do you have any thoughts or advice? My main concerns are: - My beagle mix getting along with other dogs: I had a 50# pitbull foster (3 y/o female) who my beagle mix did NOT...

    Forgive me for asking this question, I'm sure A LOT of people are gonna probably think how stupid I am for even asking this question I'm sure but...... Why is it bad to groom your dog yourself? I'm confused... What if you bought the most expensive dog clippers you could find, had the best...

  5. Dog Training and Behavior
    So I rescued an 8 year old cattle dog/pitbull mix not too long ago. He’s an absolute sweetheart, until there’s another dog around. I was misled by the rescue agency about how badly he reacts to other dogs and how unsocialized he is. Whenever he’s able to see another dog he loses his mind; if...

    My dog, 10 yr old catahoula mix, has had troubling symptoms the past few days. We have seen the Emergency vet and his regular vet already and are seeing a neurologist in a few days. He has been showing signs of old age: panting, a bit slower, and trouble jumping into the car within the past few...

  8. General Dog Discussion
    Hi! My female dog Bella (10 years old) has recently become very aggressive towards my other dog Molly (also 10 years old). Bella is my boyfriends dog, and Molly is mine. We moved in together about 1 year ago, so the dogs have been living together for 1 year. When we first moved in, they got...
  9. Dog Training and Behavior
    My dog Kilroy (10 years) has always resource guarded his toys, treats, and food from other dogs, and I have always made it a point to separately feed the dogs in the house when it's time. Unfortunately, last night my mother and I awoke to the sound of a loud scuffle and found my dog pinning her...

    Hello everyone! A cocker spaniel puppy joined my family over the holidays. She is hyper, still nipping and biting, very curious, and persistent. She's also very sweet and loving. One of her favorite things to do is get in my old dog's face and bark in an attempt to entice my dog to play with...

    I adopted a senior dog a few months ago. Things are going really great in general. However, when we're inside she constantly wants my attention. I think she's bored. She doesn't seem to know how to occupy herself with anything but food and someone petting her. She's not at all into toys (even...
  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    This is my first time posting so hopefully it’s in the right place.... My 11 year old fur baby has cancer and he’s having incontinence troubles. I’ve tried doggie diapers etc but he’s an odd shape so they don’t stay on.... so my question is is it possible to train an old dog who’s house trained...
  13. Dog Health
    My family and I have been all over the internet to try and find an answer for what is wrong with our eldest dog. Todd is an 11-12 year old Lab/possibly Malamute mix. While he has been slowing down a bit with his old age, he has been relatively good health-wise. He has, however, recently...

    Hello, all! :) I have a 10-year-old Corgi-Jack Russell mix, named Skippy. Due to his mild anxiety, he managed to chew up his back foot so much in this past couple of months that he ended up getting an infection! As a result, my veterinarian put him on Prednisone and Cephalexin. Skippy went...
  15. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi all, I am new to the forum because I'm desperately looking for some help with my doggo situation. I have a 14 year old female dachshund, Suki- sweetest old thing you ever did see. I got her when I was a teenager and she has been at my mom's house since. She used to be house-trained but has...
  16. Dog Training and Behavior
    I'm desperate for advice. Our son is 3 and full of energy. That said, he's a good boy and 99% of the time, he's gentle with our two dogs. (what kid is 100%?) Libby (8 yr old Basset hound) has ALWAYS been "grumpy". She is a house pet and fixed. She has a very low tolerance for anyone or...

    I feel this needs a little background history: My 10 year old mix breed dog has been having on and off "panics" since September 2015. I had recently relocated and knew that the change would take time to adjust to but I think this is more than just adjusting. I stayed with friends upon moving...
  19. Dog Training and Behavior
    My boyfriends 10 year old Keeshond is occasionally urinating when told to come eat. The food has not changed. He looks excited when I am preparing the food, but refuses to eat it when it is placed in his spot and then will urinate on the floor when told to come eat. If I leave it out, he will...

    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...
