  2. How many people do you think truly don't walk their dogs?

    General Dog Discussion
    This is something that I've been pondering on after being horrified to learn a few weeks back that my college aquaintence and her partner don't walk their dog. An aussie mix. At all. Maybe if they feel like it once a week or so but he doesn't get daily walks. My family dogs get a mile in the...
  3. Pup suddenly refusing to walk

    General Dog Discussion
    My dog is a little over a year old, she was a rescue and was in bad shape when we got her.

Over the year, she's made leaps and bounds (thankfully a lot of it has been the help of...

    I have a long haired Chihuahua puppy named Koda and he received his first shot at 8 weeks like you're supposed to but he didn't receive his second until today at 14 weeks (late I know) and so far I've only walked him around the yard but I was wondering, now that he's had his second shot, in a...

    Dog Gear and Supplies
    I am a full time dog walker with a shoulder injury, fun right! I am looking for shock absorbent leashes to replace the ones I currently use. Right now I have EZ Steps leashes by Bergan but they have been discontinued. These leashes are awesome because they do stretch but they also offer some...

  8. Improve connection with your dog with running activity

    Dog Training and Behavior
    As dogs owner I experienced that running with your dogs is a very positive activity because it improves the connection with your dog, it's healthy for both and it can be done with most of the breeds. There are not big issues to worry about this activity, but it's better to know some basic...

  12. Friend's dog, inhumane collar?

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Around winter, I took care of my friend's dog for a week or so, and I noticed that the choke chain was completely useless against her. I would have to do a sustained pull with very hard force for her to even stop sniffing at something. Another friend who came on a walk with me commented that...
  13. He's Behaving Very Strangely

    Dog Training and Behavior
    So I have a six year old pekingese poodle mix, Timmy. We've had a lot of change in our lives in the last seven months. I separated from my ex and moved across the state. I left my eight year old pug with my ex. Timmy has always had issues with socialization, which many dogs also have. But now...
  14. Investigating Dog Park Safety

    General Dog Discussion
    Hi guys! A friend and I are currently working on a company idea, which would help make leaving your dog off-leash at parks and open areas a lot safer. However, before we can launch ourselves into production, we need to get a sense of the market and if there's truly a need for this. If you have...

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, everyone. I have a question that's been bugging me ever since my encounter with this guy. How do I tell if my dog is getting enough exercise? Every day, we take our 7 month lab mix puppy for a 30 minute walk in the morning and a 45 minute walk in the evening. During one of those we'll...
  17. Agression Walking after being cornered

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a 3 year old Akita, neutered male. A few weeks ago someone decided ( I kid you not ) because our dogs "looked like each other" that they would get along, so while my dog and I were sitting in a fairly small room, this gentleman brought his male wolf hybrid in with no warning and blocked...
  18. Aggressive biting

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I got my dog a couple months ago from a local shelter. She is 5 months now. We are having difficulties with her 'aggressive biting' For the most part she is a well behaved dog. But she will get tantrums/spirts of aggression. For example... When we walk her she is good 90% of the walk, usually...

  20. Dog walk exchanges?

    General Dog Discussion
    I'm going to law school in a little over a year in Washington, DC. I'm hoping to get a house with a backyard, which surprisingly enough seems like it may be financially feasible, and maybe I can convince a landlord to put in a doggy door in which case this question will be moot. (although maybe...
