  1. Experience with Ratting-Type Terriers

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, all! I apologize as this post will likely be long-winded, please bare with me. About a year and half ago, I adopted Zarya, a then 12-week old "lab mix" from a local rescue. She has since grown to be a 25 pound terrier mix, my best guess is a Patterdale / Jack Russell Mix. Being that I was...

  7. Bull Terrier growth?

    General Dog Discussion
    Hi, I just have a curiosity. I met a guy earlier at the dog park with a 6 months old bull terrier puppy. She's a girl and weighs 13 kg now (28 pounds). I asked the owner how big he thinks she'll get and he told me she should weigh around 28 kg (61 pounds) as an adult. To be honest that sounded...

  10. Issue with crate

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Initially my puppy (5months now) was ok with being put in a crate at bedtime & when I had to leave him. Some barking if it was daytime but quiet at night.

  14. Any Norwich Terrier owners out there??

    Dog Breeds
    I have totally fallen in love with the Norwich Terrier. I thought when I found my Aussie Terrier, I'd found what (to me) is the cutest breed. Then I saw a video of a Norwich. They're like little bear dogs! I understand that they're quite rare in the US and that some (questionable) breeders...

  16. Terrier won't stand up (position) for training

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello all, I am trying to teach my 6 y.o. rat terrier basic commands, starting with sit. The problem is, she won't stand up so I can train her to sit - submissive behavior towards me, when I approach she slouches down or sits on her own. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Puppy Help
    Hi again, Okay, here's an example of what I'm trying to deal with on occasion (very unsuccessfully it seems). Cobber's very much a Terrier, and apparently my ankles, jeans cuffs, and shoes are all small rodents to him. We were just out in my yard after a trip to Petco. No clicker (they were...
  20. Terrier Mix...?

    Dog Breeds
    This is Fred. I'm sure if he could speak up, he would ask that that photo be deleted out of history, but for now, while I wait for the mandatory hold period to pass so that I can bring him home from the shelter, it's what I've got. His previous owners listed him as a "Jack Russell mix." I don't...
